Christian Radio

This blog has been established to talk about Christian Radio (the industry) and to encourage those who are working in the industry. I would like to talk about news, music, programs and whatever else comes up. My goal is to get listeners and the professionals to talk about the issues to help make the ministry even better and stronger. Tell all you know about this blog.

"Working" radio

By the title, I bet you're thinking that I'm going to talk about working for a station station or network. Well, that's not really what I'm talking about. I'm talk about other's 'using' radio to further their mission.

I truly believe we as Christian broadcasters have a responsibility to make air-time available to groups who really need it. I'm not talking about the groups who can afford to pay for it. I think if they can afford it (even for non-commercial stations) they should contribute to keeping the station on the air. But, I'm talking about organizations that are doing great work, but are so small paying for air time would mean not able to keep a radio station on the air, an orphan fed, or telling someone about Christ.

Here are just a couple of examples:
1. Little Samaritan Mission. They help more than 10,000 orphans in Moldova. The government respects them so much that they've given Florin Pindicblaj special creditials to help him get in and out of the country (through customs). Those credentials also give him more credibility in talking with orphanage directors and others who work with these needy children.
Little Samaritan also has 13 Christian radio stations in Moldova proclaiming the gospel. Not only are they working in Moldova, but they also have 18 radio stations in Romania, Florin's home land. He also has licenses for eight more, four of which must be on the air in June. He needs $22,000 to do that.

Who's helping them financially with no strings attached? Nobody. He's trusting the Lord. Not only are they JUST holding on, his wife is now dealing with cancer. What a load he's carrying.
He could really use your help, with no strings attached. If you're looking for a project to help children through their 'Face of a Child' program or putting Christian radio stations on the air, please contact me.

2. For Haiti with Love is another group that's been largely forgotten. They do one thing; help the people of Haiti. It's an incredibly poor nation with such spiritual needs. They're also going through sickness. The founder, Don DeHart, is very sick and could use your prayers. The organiation need funding to send food and medicine into Haiti. As they do this, they're able to share the gospel with those who are hungry physically and spiritually.
If your station is looking for a service project. These two ministries could really use your help.
