Waikia and the Key

Waikia and the Key

​A leader of her Sanumá village in the Amazon basin, Waikia was part of a regional listening group training and received a Proclaimer to take back to her community. Though she had never seen or heard a Proclaimer before the training, she gathered her husband, children, nieces, and nephews – 18 people altogether – to listen as soon as she arrived home.

When she began to turn the handle on the dynamo to charge the Proclaimer, her husband remembered a dream that he had experienced. In the dream, a man appeared and gave him a strange key that looked like a handle. The man then said to him, “Take this key and, when you have turned it, many people will find Jesus through you.”

"Now I have this key in my hands."

The moment Waikia turned the handle, her husband understood the dream, took the Proclaimer, and shared, “Now I have this key in my hands. The key that is now in my hands is a Proclaimer – and now I know that it’s through the Word of God in audio that many people will find Jesus.”

From that day forward, the entire village came regularly to hear about Jesus through the Proclaimer. Now they are sharing it with other Sanumá villages and many more people are coming to know Jesus Christ as Lord.

​In many parts of the world, those we call “men of peace” and “women of peace” are entrusted with Proclaimers to start Audio Bible listening groups. In Chad, the widespread effectiveness of this ministry approach is revealed by both a leader and a participant from villages in distant parts of the country: “I am a pastor and the man of peace in my village. It is forceful to come and hear the Word of God through the Proclaimer. God worked a miracle by transforming the life of a drunk in my group. Indeed, he was a man of hard character and he often . . ."
