Mission Trips

Galcom International installs radio stations and distributes radios through short-term mission trips worldwide. Going on a mission trip can be a life-changing experience. It makes you take a risk, step out in faith, and allows God to use your life to make an impact on others.

Using the tool of solar-powered, fix-tuned radios with audio Bibles on them, Galcom International makes it possible for people all over the world who otherwise might never be reached to hear the Word of God.

Galcom will provide all the travel information you need, as well as the tools you need, to help you raise the prayer support and funds for your trip.

Thousands of lives have been changed as God’s Word is faithfully preached in the language of the hearer through the use of solar-powered, fix-tuned radios with audio Bibles. There are still thousands more who are thirsty for that same opportunity: to hear the Gospel.

You can change lives by handing out radios or installing a Christian radio station.

Liberia:
In January a team of six men went to Liberia and installed a Christian solar-powered radio station. This trip had many obstacles. The first one was traveling to the village. It was supposed to be a 9 hour drive from the capital to Kparblee, where the station was installed. The trip took over 30 hours because of the rough road conditions which resulted in the vehicle repeatedly breaking down. We are thankful for these men who were willing to work in difficult circumstances to install the station. The station has a 6 bay antenna and is powered by a large solar system because there is no electricity there.  Praise the Lord that the station was installed and many people will hear the Gospel because of it. We have already received good reports from people about the station. 

 

Peru:

From May 2 – 11 a team of 10 people will be heading to Huánuco, Peru to deliver and distribute Galcom solar-powered fix-tuned radios with five different Quechua audio Bibles on them to the Quechua people in the Andes mountains. We will be working with JAWCA, which is a Quechua organization that promotes Scripture use among the Quechua people. Al Wyatt went to Peru last year and met with Walter Atencia, who was a co-translator of one of the Quechua New Testaments and now works for JAWCA.  Please pray for this team. If you would like to donate towards the radios or towards a team members cost you can give at www.galcom.org 

Lord willing, we are planning on taking a trip to Peru in June to Ayacucho to deliver and distribute Galcom solar-powered fix-tuned radios with Ayacucho Quechua audio Bibles on them. At this point we have 4 people who are committed to go on the trip. If you would like to go on this trip contact Alastair or Shelley Wyatt. Alastair@galcom.org or shelley@galcom.org. We will be working with Runa Simi, an organization in Peru that works to reach the people groups of Peru with the Word of God in their own tongues.  http://runasimi.com/

Station-Installation Opportunities:

We are working on projects for this year! From January 25 to February 1 Ron Huinink went  to Guinea Bissau to do a survey to see if it is possible to install a Christian radio station there. The results were very promising and we are hoping and praying that we will be able to install this station in the fall of this year.  You may be interested in going. Stay tuned for updates on this, maybe it will your chance to go across the world to install a radio station.

We need people who are able to climb towers, install solar panels, do electrical work and/or set up the computer side of the radio station. Get your name on our stand-by list to install a station. The schedule depends on funding and licensing in the country where the station will be installed. You will be contacted as the need arises.
