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!

October 2012

 Thank you so much for your faithful, consistent support of Voice for Christ Ministries.  We have had a very productive summer.  Several of our remote radio translator sites were visited and repaired to be able to continue broadcasting into the vast regions of Alaska.  Our website, www.vfcm.org, was completely redesigned and also updated to take advantage of popular communication tools, like Facebook, Twitter, and Vimeo.  Not only can people all over the world hear our radio broadcasts over the internet, they can also read the Gospel of Salvation in several different languages. 

Our ministry is also reviewing an Alaska Native women’s bible study for future programming consideration. 

As we face the challenges of winter, would you please pray for our missionaries and staff?  With your support they perform an outstanding job for our Lord and Savior each and every day.  

 “And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message…” Col 4:3

September 2012

The purpose and focus of Voice for Christ Ministries is to provide Christian radio for Native and rural Alaskans, and we thank you for your support of that mission.

For over a year we have also been streaming our flagship station, KIAM, over the internet. Not only has that provided an alternative way to be heard here in Alaska, but as a bonus, listeners from around the world can now receive our broadcasts.

We recently received a message from a man named Otache of Benue State in Nigeria, Africa.  He wrote, 

I really thank the voices for Christ for they to be there for our spiritual growth, and to make their audio messages free for us, to get from net.  I need (such) material that will guide me to grow more spiritually.  Thanks.”

     What a joy it is to see that God is using our efforts here in Alaska to touch lives all across the globe!  Thank you so much for your partnership in that work.


In His grip,
