us in 1985 and went on to do an effective TV series that was shown in all of Peru, as well
as in other countries. He continues as a professional producer. Recently, a lawyer in our
church became a board member of one of the TV networks and has started airing a new
evangelistic series done by Ruben.
In 1988, my friend and fellow worker, Jesús, once again put a bug in my ear about a
group of Christian businessmen in Indianapolis who were building low power FM radio
stations for use in remote areas. This was the beginning of a partnership that eventually
allowed us to build ten radio stations in the Andes Mountains and Amazon jungle.
International Christian Broadcasters provided the equipment for these stations that are
owned, licensed, and operated by the local churches. Quality programming was always a
problem until we met the good people at Bible Broadcasting Network (BBN) in Charlotte.
They provided 500 watt FM transmitters as well as the satellite downlinks for their 24 hour
Three of these stations are in BIMI planted churches in Jauja, Tarma, and Chosica.
The others are operated by other Bible-believing groups. All are faithfully preaching the
Gospel and are seeing families saved and Christians growing in the Lord.
We are no longer directly involved with the radio and TV ministries but certainly
have good memories of climbing towers, tuning transmitters, camera work and editing, as
well as the joy of knowing that God's Word always produces eternal fruit. n
“I have found that there are three stages in every great work of God:
first, it is impossible, then it is difficult, then it is done.”
