Ukhozi FM's New Weekly Radio Program Focuses on Strengthening Families

The new strengthening families program, titled “Ikhaya Lethu” (Our Home), will air every Thursday beginning September 18, 10:30 pm on Ukhozi FM, 90.8.

Bishop Charles Magaqa of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Durban South Africa joined with Reverend Sabelo Mkhathini on Ukhozi FM radio’s “Ikhaya Lethu” (Our Home) to present important family topics in today’s society. Bishop Magaqa, the Regional Coordinator of Seminary and Institute for KZN, spoke on two main subjects, The Family – A Proclamation to the World and Family Home Evening, a weekly program for strengthening families.

Rev. Mkhathini was impressed with the preparation of Bishop Magaqa, who presides over Umlazi BB Ward.  His topic on marriage and family pointed a good way for people. He was most impressed when Bishop Magaqa pointed out the pillars of marriage such as praying together, respect, compassion, and forgiveness.

“I wanted to emphasize some selected themes,” said Bishop Magaqa. “That men and women are equal partners in marriage. I was trying to discount that one is above the other, I wanted people to know that men and women are on the same level.” 

Over the next several weeks, Bishop Magaqa will discuss topics that he feels will make a difference in people’s lives.

The program will begin airing every Thursday, beginning September 18, 10:30 pm on Ukhozi FM, 90.8.
