AWR Launches Georgian Podcasts

This week, Adventist World Radio has begun podcasting programs in the Georgian language for the first time. The Seventh-day Adventist Church presence in the country of Georgia is very small, with only a little more than 300 members. But Georgian Adventists Emzari and Eka Chrikishvili have taken on the responsibility of writing and recording programs, to share the gospel with their people.

To start with, the programs are focusing on health, family topics, and childhood education. “The Orthodox Church is dominant, and people are very traditional,” says Vigen Khachatryan, Media Center director of the Transcaucasus Union Mission. “Local radio stations provide only entertainment-oriented programs, and there has never been any Adventist radio broadcasting. We would like to be heard on local stations, but so far it is impossible. We will try our best to find at least one local radio station to broadcast our programs, by the grace of God ”
