During the summer of 2006 I had the privilege of bringing my family to the African country of Ghana. I had been invited by TheoVision International to do a 10-day seminar on radio broadcasting. While there, I recorded these interviews on this dynamic ministry.
In recent months Prime Time America has highlighted ministry going on in various urban centers around the country. Even though much of our population reside in or around cities, there are still millions of Americans who live in rural communities.
This feature is a conversation with Mark Danielson, Director of Mission Ministries for RHMA, about their ministry which focuses on these areas.

Earlier today officials in Haiti announced the death toll to be more than 230,000 people–a number which is expected to rise in the weeks ahead.
The incredible number of shattered families have led many to look for ways to reach out to the growing numbers of orphans in that country. I recently spoke with Doug Phillips, President of Vision Forum Ministries, who with a small team traveled to Haiti to participate in rescue efforts at a number of orphanages destroyed in the quake.
If you liked to watch Doug’s reports from the field, they are available through his Vimeo channel.
The attention of the world in recent weeks has been on the small island nation of Haiti. Millions of dollars in aid has been raised and food/medical supplies continue to arrive. This feature takes a look at one ministry who is coming along side other relief efforts and offering words of life to those dealing with the incredible loss all around them.
20 years ago Matthias Media began in Australia, deciding to focus only on publishing ministry resources to assist the church in gospel growth. Traditional business models might suggest diversification and wider market appeal would be more successful, but this publishing company has grown into a multinational group that is having a huge impact on the church worldwide.

Earlier this week was the annual observance of World AIDS Day. In recent years a lot of attention has been given to dealing with the wide-spread problem of HIV/AIDS in Africa—primarily focusing on prevention, medical advancements and education. While these programs have been successful in lowering the number of cases, they often fall short of dealing with the broad scope of the problem.
This feature reports on what Wycliffe International is doing to reach out to those suffering with HIV/AIDS and how they minister to the whole person in the process.

Over the last month, many stations across the Moody Network have been involved in a fund-raising campaign with Wycliffe Bible Translators. The Last Languages Campaign seeks to introduce the Word of God into the remaining 2400 languages of the world.
Once a translation has been completed there are many ministry partners who come along side Wycliffe to see these translations get into the hearts and minds of a community. One such ministry partner, Faith Comes By Hearing. Morgan Jackson is the ministry’s Director.
