March 2013

      We are so thankful for your prayers and financial support at this time of year.  Presently, we are focused on building a solid team that can go forth into the villages where our radio translators are located.  Once there, the team will build relationships, share the gospel, encourage believers, and perform needed radio maintenance and repairs to keep Christian Radio on the air 24/7.  Please pray for the hearts of those who do not yet know Jesus as their Saviour and for the pilots and others who will partner with us. 

           “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.”  Luke2:14

February 2013

     Thank you for your prayers and financial support.  A dog musher atop a mountain, cell-phoned Dee Eldridge recently and requested a Mukluk Message.  He wanted to communicate through KIAM radio that he was alive and well, but that he would be returning home very late at night with his dog team.  His message reached our listeners, demonstrating the effectiveness of radio in Alaska.  Radio is a powerful tool that our Lord uses in many ways.  Thank you for partnering with us this year! 

      Lamentations 3:22-23, “It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.  They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.”

January 2013

            As I reflect on the year 2012 I am mindful of the tragic and sudden loss of lives in our own country and of the many souls eternally separated from the love of Christ.  Yet, we know that many have also been saved through the efforts of faithful servants who are willing to proclaim His truth day and night.  

            We are so grateful for your participation with us, to broadcast the soul-saving message of Jesus Christ to those who have never read a bible, or attended a church where the gospel message is preached.  What a privilege to encourage the faith of believers and to help equip them to give an answer for the hope that is within them (I Peter 3:15). 

“In God have I put my trust:  I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.”  Psalm 56:11

December 2012

      The village of Bethel in far western Alaska is home to our KYKD radio station.  In early November, it was home for the Voice for Christ Ministries Board of Directors semi-annual meeting.  During this wonderful visit, the directors had opportunities to meet and worship with Yup’ik (yu-pek) Native Alaskans.  One very memorable moment for me occurred during a church service when a Native woman shared her appreciation for our radio ministry in Bethel.  This was the first time that I had heard directly from an Alaskan Native of how much our ministry means to those living in remote villages and it touched me deeply. 
      Please continue to pray and give to His work, especially as we focus on our Savior’s birth: “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given…”  Isaiah 9:6

November 2012

      Recently, one of our KYKD volunteers in Bethel, Alaska, (who also is our webmaster) spent a couple of days in the Yup'ik coastal village of Quinhagak in the southwestern part of our state.  Voice for Christ Ministries remotely broadcasts KIAM (Nenana) into Quinhagak through a radio repeater.  As Derek casually asked around the village about the radio station, he received positive feedback and one particular comment worth noting.  A new staff member at the local school commented how surprised he was to learn that the only station he could pick up was in fact a Christian station!  He now wakes up every morning by his alarm under the encouragement of God's proclaimed Word, set to VFCM's repeater station there!  Whether our listeners come from a local Alaska native resident, an outsider currently residing in one of the villages for work, or simply anyone happening to visit some of Alaska's remote locations, VFCM aims to be there where ever possible, consistently proclaiming the unapologetic Word of God in message and song through radio technology.
     Thank you for your continued partnership in prayer and support as we collectively share in God's Gospel advancement across Alaska!
