One of Galcom International’s partners is a man named Alex Muir. Alex is with Pioneers Canada, an Evangelical mission organization that mobilizes teams to participate in planting churches amongst unreached people groups. Alex is based out of New Brunswick, and has had a burden for the Quechua people in Boiivia for some time. He has made a number of trips down to Bolivia to hand out Galcom International radios to this needy people group.
Most Quechua speakers of this indigenous language live in Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, Argentina, Chile and Colombia. Alex has been traveling to Bolivia for a number of years to minister to the Quechua there. He makes at least two trips per year, and takes along 1,000 radios each trip. Alex and his team hand out these radios one to a family, or even a village. If a Galcom radio can reach 8 or even 10 people, imagine the impact of 1,000 radios broadcasting the Good News in their native language.
This most recent trip was number 34 for Alex with Galcom radios/audio Bibles. He says that they have been privileged to hand out 47,000 radios or audio Bible/radio combinations.
He says, “It’s a great joy to think that each team has made a difference in many people’s lives. By going to pre-arranged stops in different communities and inviting other communities to come and meet with us, many Quechua have had an opportunity to hear the Gospel.
“We have visited 148 communities, with at least one family from each receiving an audio Bible/radio. Many of these communities do not have a local church. In fact, most communities do not have any believers and most have not heard the message in their heart language until now.
Thank you all again [to Galcom] for being faithful servants, such a vital part in this ministry to the Quechua. Pray as we plan and set up our teams for 2017, asking God to provide for the Galcom audio Bible/radios and for those who will travel with us to make a difference in Quechua lives.”
If you feel the Lord calling you to travel with Alex and a team to reach the Quechua through
radio, please contact the Galcom International office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
