Congolese impacting Congo – Broadcast equipment was shipped to our partner Christian Bilingual University of Congo (UCBC) for a new station in Beni. UCBC is leading Congo by modeling a type of education that is integrated and relevant for Congo’s challenges in the 21st century. Pray for students to be equipped to impact their country through courses rooted in Christian values.
Lightning strike – We provided a replacement antenna for a station in Banda, Democratic Republic of Congo, a ministry of the Evangelical Community Church in Africa (CECA-20), after their antenna was struck by lightning. The CECA-20 is involved in evangelization and church building, women’s work, education, theological training, radio stations, medical work, development and an AIDS awareness program. Pray for God’s protection and provision for this great work in the northeast region of the country.
A growing body of believers – Radio Alpha Omega FM, located in Goma, Democratic Republic of Congo, is a Christian media ministry working together with local churches to proclaim the Good News. They are able to reach more than two million people. Every year no less than 150 souls have been gained for Christ and at least three churches planted. Pray for the body of believers to continue to flourish as a result of this station.
First Christian missionary radio station – HCJB “The Voice of the Andes” was the first radio station with daily programming in Ecuador and the first Christian missionary radio station in the world. The station was founded in 1931. HCJB now focuses on Ecuador with unified programming in Pichincha, Manabi, Tungurahua, Cotopaxi and Esmeraldas. Pray for God’s favor as they must reapply for licensing.
