Especially in the United States and Canada, most people think of shortwave radio as old technology, but for the rest of the world it is their only life-line — their only way to be connected to the “outside.” And AWR is connecting them in great numbers to Jesus Christ!
Statistically, of the billions of people in Asia, only two to eight percent are Christian. Unlike AM or FM radio (which AWR uses also), shortwave radio goes where missionaries cannot go!

AWR is now upgrading one antenna array and adding another so we can more effectively reach China, North Korea, Vietnam, Indonesia, Cambodia, India and beyond with God’s last day message of hope and the news of His soon return.
In a short time all five “Mighty Steel Preachers,” standing on the shores of Guam, will be blanketing the good news of salvation across Asia in over 30 languages. Yes, shortwave radio is alive and well in the North American Division, winning souls in large numbers across the 10/40 Window.
