From Bill Snider: How Can They Hear?

I remember my first visit to Fiji. After a church meeting, I stood outside my hotel looking at a small group of people gathered on a hill probably half a mile away. Then there were flames. It was a funeral pyre. A Hindu family was burning a corpse. Their hope: reincarnation to a better life. The picture above was taken at the Schwedagon Pagoda in Myanmar. It was a festival day, and the place was j ...[Read More]

Pioneers of the Broadcast

Pioneers of the Broadcast

The very first year Kim and I laid the foundation in place for AP Media, the mission God set on our heart was clear — to train indigenous media missionaries to carry the gospel to their people in a way they could understand that would translate into their daily lives. The most accessible, wide-reaching, cost effective way to carry that message — radio. So we began raising up urban radio broadcaste ...[Read More]

30 Years: Riding Waves of Change

30 Years: Riding Waves of Change

My media roots were cultivated in radio. In fact, in a time before the time of cable television, I spent my years building and managing radio stations in Illinois. So, when Kim and I laid the groundwork for what was to be AP Media from our home 30 years ago, radio naturally became the launching pad of this ministry. And GOD MOVED POWERFULLY! There were many instances in the history of this ministr ...[Read More]

The Call for First Responders

The Call for First Responders

As I write this letter, I’m in the midst one of those epic God moments that Kim and I have experienced in 30 years of ministry. I’m in Yangon, Myanmar, with an AP Media team for a week-long Multiply Training in social media and video production — the first social media training in the history of the country. We anticipated 25 leaders from Myanmar to attend this week-long training — the actual turn ...[Read More]

Releasing John 10:10 Potential

Releasing John 10:10 Potential

Though battles wage across the Philippines against drugs and terrorist uprising, we believe that AP Media is positioned in the heart of this region for such a time as this. Many addicts, in fear of the death sentence for their drug habit, know that rehabilitation that provides LIFE-changing results is the only hope they have for a future. That’s why telling the stories of former addicts like Jerry ...[Read More]

HOPE Multiplies the Harvest

HOPE Multiplies the Harvest

Someone has said that the light shines most brightly in a dark place. And in every part our world, hope is the light that keeps people going. Even in the darkest times, we have seen the light of Hope, over and over again, multiply the harvest. If you are like me and are following the news about some difficult part of the world, it’s easy to think that hope is in short supply. In our ministry headq ...[Read More]

Thanksgiving Multiplied

Thanksgiving Multiplied

Even though Thanksgiving is not celebrated in Asia Pacific, as a ministry, we have a reason to celebrate! We look back on a year of great harvest and workers being readied for the field. We’ve been given an opportunity to take this into countries where no missionary has been allowed to go. But in this time of abundance, there is a reality: out of 895 million people in Asia Pacific, 845 million of ...[Read More]

Editorial: Digital Loaves and Fish

A few years back, I was talking with one of our China workers about a unique MP4 audio/video player. It was a small but useful tool that held the Bible and also several hours of video teaching and looked like a very small cellphone. My friend described it as “digital loaves and fish.” That expression has remained in my heart. It really describes what we do! As you browse our annual print issue of ...[Read More]
