Located in northwestern Peru, the radio station will broadcast in a 300-mile radius, thereby reaching nearly one-third of Peru's population, including the Quechua Indian villages in the remote Andes Mountains. Due to the great difficulty of mountain travel, usually only by burro path, for many the radio is their pastor and teacher. Broadcasts will be in both Spanish and Quechua and offer not only evangelistic messages but also discipleship lessons.
A team of two GCRI Board members went to Peru to view the site and talk with the pastors who will be responsible for construction oversight and broadcast material. At first we were taken to one of the Quechua mountain villages to experience firsthand the difficulty of travel and to worship with the Indians in their village church. The next day we went to the site of the tower location and dedicated the ground to the Lord to be a place where His Word would go forth in power and draw many to the Savior.
