Radio HCJB in Ecuador – Our partner Radio HCJB in Ecuador is waiting for the approval of their frequency. There is another entity vying for that same frequency. Pray for Radio HCJB to find favor in the eyes of the regulating authorities. They have been broadcasting Christian programming for over 85 years.
Waiting for license – Our partner Radio Mera in Ecuador is waiting for its license from the government to continue broadcasting. They had to put their license in a pool for the government to decide if they are able to continue or not. Radio Mera 1380 is a traditional radio station in Ambato that transmits on AM. Their unmatched style has made them a favorite station in the region. They have been operating since 1958 and are the only Christian radio originating in Ambato for the province of Tungurahua. Pray for God to work in the hearts of government officials to reinstate their license.
Reaching German-speaking listeners – We recently built, tested and installed a transmitter for Vozandes Media in Ecuador. Vozandes Media is a new mission started in Quito by the German Language Service of Reach Beyond Latin America to keep some of the shortwave on the air after Reach Beyond-LAR ended shortwave broadcasts in 2009. Vozandes Media is reaching German-speaking listeners in 60 countries. Pray for God’s blessing on the transmission of this programming which also provides the signal for thousands of fixed-tuned radios.
