Christian Radio in Cotahuasi Canyon

Cotahuasi family with SonSet radio Senda Christiana (the Christian Way) is on the air in the rugged Cotahuasi Canyon of southern Peru after years of planning and hard work by SIM missionaries, HCJB Global engineers, and local believers. This 300-watt, FM station is broadcasting the good news of Jesus Christ to villagers in remote Quechua communities.  Where missionaries could only visit several times a year, the radio waves deliver Bible teaching every day, penetrating into all the nooks and crannies of the world’s deepest canyon above sea level. Programming is focused on Bible teaching and practical life application for Christians, as well as clear scripture reading in both Quechua and Spanish.  Listeners are learning about God’s holiness, about the horridness of sin, and their need for a Savior.

One hundred solar powered, pre-tuned SonSet® radios from the HCJB Global Technology Center have already reached the Cotahuasi Canyon for distribution among the believers living in isolated villages.  Four hundred more of these radios are awaiting shipment as hurdles of “red tape” are cleared.  Pray with us for favorable government action in Peru to speed them on their way.  Many hearts are spiritually hungry and open to learning God’s ways.
