Celebrating 25 Years in the Ministry

Filed under Featured, Missions, News

We’ve completed another successful term of ministry for 2015 marking a decade since the start of Mission BULGARIA in 2005 and also our 25th anniversary in the ministry. From humble beginnings in September of 1990, God has taken us to a full quarter century of ministry literally throughout the globe.

As the Thanksgiving season is now upon us, we will be commemorating this event more extensively with a series called “25 Years of Miracles.” The series contains testimonies with various healings and miracles from our ministry, which we’ve collected and recorded through the years.

We are grateful to the Lord for giving us the opportunity to preach the Gospel and be a part of your life through our ministry. Thank you for your partnership and friendship through the years and Happy Thanksgiving!

The Nouvelle Radio is a national broadcast network with six regional stations located in the towns of Yaounde (the capital), Douala, Bafoussam, Ngaounderй, Kribi and Ebolowa. The Ebolowa station alone provides coverage over four major Cameroonian cities (Mengong, Bewong-bane, Abang, and Bityli). It is projected that the services will soon be broadcasted through a seventh retranslating station in the town of Kye-osi at the border with Equatorial Guinea.
