Frequently, I hear people talk about having seen a photo of someone using a cell phone in a remote part of Africa or in the middle of a huge desert.

Believe it or not, 46% of the population of Nigeria is unconnected. As for Kenya, 67% of the people are offline. And then there's Ethiopia where 83% of the people are not connected to the internet.(1) So, how can we reach all of these African people with the Gospel? Radio! Listen to today's program.
