Here at CIAM our ultimate goal is to proclaim the Good News over the airways at home and around the world. Our desire is that everyone would have a chance to hear the Gospel — whether in person, over FM in small remote communities, or online. We are called to be active participants in sharing the Gospel so that people can hear the Truth, see the Way, and find the Life through a personal relationship with Jesus.
Many dedicated CIAM missionaries and volunteers are serving faithfully together with you to make this happen in each of the thirty-one FM broadcast locations in Canada and through the internet, smart phones, and social media. We would ask for your continued prayers and support as we seek God’s guidance in how to continue to expand the CIAM broadcast ministry and various outreach tools in media missions.
Praise the Lord for the diversity and richness of the CIAM outreach ministries! CIAM is reaching many communities not only over FM, internet, and smartphones, but also globally through the Chinese radio broadcast, and, Lord willing, soon also Low German, Indigenous, Tamil, and interactive missions tools such as The CHOICE.
Recently, two new CIAM stations started among the Tahltan First Nation people in Telegraph Creek in northern BC and the Acho Dene Koe First Nations community in Fort Liard in Northwest Territories. These are the only stations in the communities, and now the people can hear the Good News 24/7! CIAM is also airing several locally produced Indigenous programs. We would ask for your prayers for the many faithful and committed First Nations pastors and Bible teachers who are involved in making this happen. Please pray that their messages will impact people for eternity here and now and also that the next generation of Indigenous believers will carry on production of new content centred on the Word of God.
We kindly invite you to take a step of faith with CIAM in 2023. We would appreciate your support in prayers - for new broadcast applications with CRTC, additional missionary servants, spiritually strong and unified missions teams - and finances. Again, we want to express a heartfelt thanks to you as a friend and supporter of CIAM. We count it a privilege to serve together with you and to be actively involved in bringing Good News to Canada’s people and beyond — one heart, one family, and one community at a time.
