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

Dear Brothers and Sisters, 

Your prayers and donations make a huge difference in people’s lives.  Ken C. recently wrote to our vfcm.org website:

Having only two stations previously to listen in on (APRN and KBYR) here in Prudhoe, I was greatly amazed when on a whim I searched my truck’s radio and the Bluegrass Hour brought a huge smile on my face!  It has been a couple years I think when we lost your signal and I was quite bummed about it.  Now, you're on my dial, folks here on the slope are listening, and God's voice is being heard in an otherwise "dark" atmosphere.  KIAM is bringing teaching, music, testimonies, and the Light of Christ in a part of the world where God's presence is much needed. Thank you so much and please stay on the slope!”
