Media Plan Will Share the Light

Alaska's media ministry has always combined human ingenuity and unmistakable divine miracles. Currently three successful radio stations are beaming the Adventist message to Tok, Wrangell and Dillingham.

Yet, the challenge to reach across the vast Alaskan territory with the gospel remains. While pondering this challenge, conference leadership prayed for God's help and He brought answers in remarkable ways.

After successfully applying for new commercial radio stations in six larger towns, the conference has a 36-month window to have commercial stations on the air in Juneau, Sitka, Homer, Nome, North pole/Fairbanks and Wasilla, covering the majority of the population centers in Alaska. The largest will be in Wasilla where a 10,000 watt AM station has been approved to give the Three Angels' Message to more than 50 percent of Alaska's population. Fairbanks is the second largest city in Alaska and that station will reach another 30 percent.

These larger stations will be coupled with the network of small bush village stations being developed by Gavin and Judi Thompson of Dillingham — a project detailed in the December 2008, Gleaner.

Please pray for the continued work of "Sharing the Light in Alaska."
