RAOFM began in 1992, that time it was called SAUTI YA NENO LA UZIMA or IBRA Goma. Our main activities from the beginning is proclaiming the Good News through media (Radio and Christian literature), training servants so that they may use radio properly as tool of evangelism. In using radio, we work with local churches in planting churches in areas where there isn’t any church.
Last year because of COVID-19, we didn’t succeed to do training as it was planned. Now, this year we have started our first training sessions. On 11th to 16th February 2021, I was in Gemena the main city of South-Ubangi province where we had two training. From 11th to 13th February 2021 we were together with about 27 servants from different corners in though-Ubangi province and we leant Paul’s method in reaching people who are in the forest (missiology) . We made two days (15th to 16th February) with RAOFM Gemena’ journalists. During those two days, we learnt how to collect our information in the field and how to prepare it before to present it in the studio.
We are going to have the last training during this term in Goma in March 2021. During that last session we are going to see how we can be a good reporter during a crisis period. Types and good interview. In the second term we will train about 15 new radio producers.
