The Language of the Heart: Reaching the Lost Around the World

Together, we're reaching the lost in 26 of the world's most-spoken languages.

When a global radio executive first approached Dr. Youssef about the idea of translating his programs and broadcasting them into the Arab-speaking world, his first response was, "No way."

Join us as we press on to reach the lost in their heart language.


"I felt like this new idea was somebody else's vision and not from God," Dr. Youssef says. "For several years, I avoided the vision of a radio ministry until God finally broke through. What God understood, but I couldn't see at the time, was that He would use the radio program to fulfill His global evangelical vision for our ministry."

In 1996, Leading The Way launched its first Arabic-English dual-language programs, with a sentence in English followed by the Arabic translation, designed as an outreach to English-learners in the Muslim world.

Decades later, these programs continue to bear fruit. As they air on TV and radio, stream online, and echo from the speakers of solar-powered Navigator devices, God is using them to reach the lost in their native language. Working in tandem with our ministry field teams and social media outreach, these programs are a vital part of our far-reaching global ministry together.

We rejoice when we hear from listeners like this in Kurdistan:

"I am a Muslim. I just heard your radio broadcast. Could you send me a Bible?"

Join us as we press on to reach the lost in their heart language. May God be glorified as many more souls enter His Kingdom!

Help us expand this Kingdom work through prayer and giving today as we continue our mission to see one million souls for Christ through Vision 2025.
