Hoss's Fundraising Night

Image
Every year The Tide has numerous fundraisers to raise money for heart language radio broadcasts, radio placements, and general operational costs.  Some of these fundraisers include the hamloaf sale, the nut sale, and the golf benefit.
This year, The Tide has decided to try a new way to raise funds by partnering with Hoss’s Steakhouse. Hoss’s will be providing The Tide with tickets to distribute to people and they will then bring the ticket to the restaurant any time during the prescheduled day. The cashiers will collect the tickets with the guest check and total all of the checks collected and then Hoss’s will send The Tide a check for 25% if sales were $1,200 or more and 20% if it is less than $1,200.

The Tide Radio Ministry Leads to Baptism in India

Image
As part of The Tide’s ministry in leading people into a relationship with Jesus Christ and equipping them to share their faith with others, The Tide conducts Seekers Conferences in various places throughout the world. Listeners who have been introduced to Jesus through The Tide heart language radio programs are invited to gather together to hear the Word of God explained more fully by The Tide ministry leaders and local pastors.These events not only provide in depth teaching on foundational tenets of the Christian faith, but also give curious listeners the opportunity to have their questions answered and to openly discuss a variety of issues including such things as sin, salvation, and God and His love. During February 2012 The Tide ministry partners in India conducted a series of Seekers Conferences among relatively unreached tribal people.The majority of people ministered to through these Seekers Conferences were Uraon people who speak a language called Kurukh.

New Language in Nigeria

Image
The Tide strives to reach as many people as possible with the good news of Jesus Christ. Our newest campaign is Vision 2015; add 15 more heart language radio broadcasts by the year 2015. With the addition of the Ibibio broadcast, The Tide now has broadcasts in 16 different languages and 7 of those are in Nigeria! The Ibibio people are located in the coastal Southeastern part of Nigeria. The Ibibio live in an area called the 10/40 window. The 10/40 window contains the majority of the world’s poor. On average the people living in this area survive on less than a few hundred dollars a year. This area may also be referred to as “The Resistant Belt” because many of the world’s Muslims, Hindus, and Buddhists reside within the 10/40 window.

Easter Greetings

Image
We who are called Christians celebrate Easter as a memorial to God’s power to give us eternal life demonstrated through the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus.Pretty flowers, colorful eggs, and chocolate bunnies may all be viewed as symbols of life, but only the death of Jesus on the cross and His subsequent resurrection assures us of salvation for all who believe.This is the message of hope that The Tide radio programs speak to people in their heart languages, and we owe a huge debt of gratitude to friends like you who make it possible for The Tide to consistently proclaim this message.As grateful as we are for your support, our sense of appreciation pales in comparison to the profound words of thanksgiving that come to us from people whose lives are being radically changed through an encounter with Jesus as they hear the gospel in their own language. Here are just a few words of appreciation directly from the mouths of people whose lives you have helped touch;“Thank yo…
