A 200,000-watt transmitter in the middle of Asia! Are you crazy? Not at all! Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, there have been many doors opened for ministries to work in Central Asia. Recently, many governments in that region have tightened the regulations and added new restrictions for churches and their activities. In these countries, Islam is the predominant religion people adhere to. Because of this, Christians in this region often face oppression from community and family. For many believers, one of the only ways to receive biblical teaching is through radio programs. This is especially true for believers living in rural areas.
