Transmitter and Tower Repair and Upgrade - Bolivia

June 2019
Thank you for your continued support financially and in prayer. We are so grateful for your partnership in our Wycliffe ministry.
Replacing Antenna
Ray was in Cochabamba, Bolivia, in March to help replace a shortwave antenna at Radio Mosoj Chaski (New Messenger). This is a shortwave station that broadcasts in Quechua during the night and early morning hours to all the rural areas in Bolivia. Our partner mission Galcom has provided 50,000 fixed, tuned receivers for those areas.
Ray also spent some days in Santa Cruz renewing contact with families who were mentored while we were living there in 1999-2007.

Recently, he coordinated a lightning protection project live via WhatsApp to a remote FM station in Northern Bolivia. They broadcast the gospel in Spanish, Portuguese, and a local indigenous language.
The next project is to install two Solid State shortwave transmitters in central Colombia to replace the old obsolete, heavy power-consuming transmitters that are currently off the air. These will broadcast in Spanish and several of the indigenous languages in eastern Colombia.
Pray for the timing of this trip (possibly in mid- July) and for safety in travel and security.
We have received requests for help in repairing and planning new stations from other missions. We want to be available to all in spreading God’s Word to indigenous groups in their own language. Pray for us as we consider how best we can meet the needs of these others.
Your servants for Christ,
Ray and Doris Rising
