Radio Logos is broadcasting from Chazuta Peru on 4810 SW with listener reports from Sweden, Illinois, New York, and California. These reports demonstrate the far reaching effects of this media. Many language groups can and are receiving this station signal in their own language and dialect. Note a report from the folks that assist the installation and operation:

"...in May and June we were able to do two more dubbings of the New Testament for two dialects of Quechua—Junin and Apurimac. We sent two teams to do this. The Junin people had waited almost nine years for their New Testament to be recorded and they were extremely emotional during the dubbing. The dedication of the Apurimac New Testament will be in September which means they will not only have the precious written Word in their hands but will also be able to listen to it by way of the 'PROCLAIMER' and radio."

"We have also helped in the construction and importation of equipment for a new radio station in Chazuta, in the Peruvian jungle. Ray Rising, a radio engineer and member of Wycliffe Bible Translators, has been helping with this from the beginning. We had a lot of legal problems at first but thanks be to God we were finally able to import the equipment and send it out to Chazuta. This radio station will be so far-reaching that it will cover half of Peru, even reaching many far off communities and will be transmitting in different languages. We have at present in our offices, more than 15 New Testaments recorded and within a few days, they will be on the airwaves 24 hours a day going out to half the country of Peru. (emphasis added) This is unbelievable. Chazuta Radio Station is just as it says in Habakkuk 2:14—“For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.”

Prayer Requests:
"We are now getting seven laptops ready to be used at the radio station so that seven different tribal groups can make their own programs. We are in need of eight microphones for this Project. We also need a Beringer console with ten channels to be used in the studio.

Two trips are still to be made to Chazuta to prepare the studio . Carlos Timana and Roberto Almeida will be travelling there as soon as we have more funding for this project. The cost of the above needed equipment is approximately $980."

(Excerpts from prayer letter of Jaime & Monica Almeida, July 2012 )

How delightful to hear of the passions of the people and of so many now listening to the "Good News" in their own villages in the remotest jungles. Please pray for the funds and full implementation of the studio and rest of the facilities to be completed properly, plus the scripture preparation, dubbing, translations, and additional training to use the Audacity software and station scheduling software. The managers and DJ's are eager and busy implementing the capabilities of Radio Logos to reach jungles far from Chazuta.

Please pray for protection, continued funding, and safety for the proper installation of all the systems including proper operation of the satellite dish to acquire programs from HCJB-Equador. The operators and DJ's will need to acquaint themselves with a Scheduling Program on the donated station desktop computer to get the programming in the proper slots and times. Of course, they have already been recording music and programs on their donated laptops sent down earlier for training, using the software "Audacity".
