   The first week of September found a large crowd of about 500 people from 17 language groups attending a big celebration of Radio Logos at the local evangelical church in Chazuta, Peru. Many attended from remote areas since they heard it on Radio Logos -even from as far away as Brazil.  It was a very big event with folks celebrating that they can hear the strong signal from many hundreds of miles into the Amazon Jungle basin.

  A recently completed studio is also part of the station and to produce recorded scripture and programs for airing. Even the younger ones are involved including a 15 year old girl helping in the studio. They are very motivated to be a part of this vital and growing ministry.
                                                                   Radio Logos on the air!

  We praise God for the many many donations and volunteers that have made Radio Logos a reality. The church is very thankful for all the hard work expended by so many. It is amazing how God works to get His Word to the Amazon Jungle.

Radio Logos is on the Air as of July 21, 2012

  Good News! The radio station has been installed and is operating on a daily basis.
  We expect the fruit will be prolific! The station transmitter went live and is broadcasting each morning and evening at these approximate times:
    5:30 AM -8:00 AM
    4:00 PM - 9:00 PM
  The frequency is 4810 MHz which is in the shortwave band. Thus this signal  will reach over most of Peru. We already have received listener reports from many places in Peru and also in Sweden, New York, California, Chicago, and your truly has recorded a short program in Waxhaw, NC.  Remember a shortwave signal travels far with the correct atmospheric conditions.

   The first "Radio Workshop for Jungle" included Planning, Production & Presentation of a Radio Program. Presented by Dany Prado of Runa Simi in Peru, leaders of different tribal communities of the Amazon Jungle of Peru: Awajun, Shawi, Wampis, Achuar, Candoshi, & Quechua. Some had to travel for a week to participate in this workshop. Sensing the great need to proclaim the Gospel in their own native languages, these men and women have committed to serve the Lord by producing radio programs to reach their people for Christ.

   A workshop was taught by Dany Prado training these folks in the use of a used laptop computer (supplied by the Ethnic Radio Team) with audio editing software named Audacity. They learned to prepare scripts and choose program formats that would attract their listeners. They also learned how to present inductive Bible studies and produce micro-programs for radio broadcast. Walter Prado, (Dany's father) helped with the inductive Bible studies.

   Many were fearful to get behind a microphone for the first time and use this recording equipment with a live audience. However this exercise helped them overcome their fear and prepared them to use the gifts and talents they already possessed. They prepared and presented a live radio program in their own language during this workshop. Recording it and playing it back for participants to hear was the final hurdle, making for some very excited tribal leaders. Success! They could do it themselves!

"Your prayers and love offerings give me the opportunity to serve the Lord in this ministry. Thanks so much and may the Lord bless you."

A Trip to Peru - May 2012

Dear Friends,

Years ago, when I was held captive by a guerrilla force in Columbia, I learned first hand the powerful impact of hearing radio broadcasts in my own language. Since that time, it has been a passion of mine to establish radio stations in South America so thousands are able to hear the Word of God -even in areas that are nearly impossible to reach in their "heart language". Recently a highland Quechua radio producer told Ray how radio has helped open many closed doors to proclaim the gospel in isolated locations.

Jairo Sangama is a Peruvian pastor I met five years ago, also has a vision to reach his people by radio. Together we have begun the long process of searching for a prime location to build a short-wave radio broadcast station in Chazuta, Peru. A prime two-acre plot was donated by a family in the Chazuta church for a radio station, however the grandmother of the family was not a believer and opposed the project.

God has worked in marvelously in Grandmother Marleny’s heart and she has become a follower of Jesus and supports the land donation! Grandma Marleny and twenty-four others were at the land site to greet us May 2, 2012 ready to clear the land for the antenna! God has orchestrated donated radio equipment, which is ready to ship to Peru. The monumental task for the station is nearly done after two years of paperwork, license application, and preparation. Land is cleared,equipment donated and the work is now started.

Our excitement at the progress of this project is hard to describe but at the moment we are relating to the freed Hebrew slaves coming out of Egypt! We’re facing a Red Sea of our own and realising the Egyptians are in hot pursuit! Our budget has been cut so there are no funds for shipping the donated equipment. August 8, 2012 is the deadline for having the station operational in compliance with the license, or we must begin that process all over again!

In order to cross this "Red Sea", we will need funds for the electric connection, transmitter building, studio equipment and travel funds. The $38,000 needed seems impossible but we serve a God of possibilities and we are joyfully expecting a miraculous parting of these

Join us in this exciting Ethnic Radio journey and pray that God will meet all these needs above and beyond all we ask or think! If you’d like to invest in the eternal rewards of this ministry, please contact us. Checks can be sent to:

If GOD is for us, and we know He is, who can be against us?

Partnering together for His glory,
Ray and Doris Rising
