A couple of weeks ago I flipped on the radio in the car on my way home. I was surprised to hear an advertisement for a new radio program that would be starting in a few weeks on the topic of “Languages of the Solomon Islands”.
I went down to the radio station the next week to find out about the program and find out if there were ways that we could help provide resource people and information. My friend Karen and I sat down with Moddie, the host of the radio program. Moddie explained that it has been on her heart to start a program on languages, but she was happy to have some help on ideas for program topics. Karen has an MA in linguistics and loves to talk about languages – especially from the Solomon Islands.
Moddie asked us to come back to the station today so she could interview Karen for the radio show. Karen recorded two programs today and they will start airing this Thursday all over the country.
What a wonderful opportunity to be able to share about languages around the Solomons and share about Bible translation work.
