Christian Center of Communications (CCC) Graduation:
On October 2, we celebrated with nine CCC students as they received their associate's degrees in communications from Northwestern College in St. Paul, Minnesota.
Faculty and the President of Northwestern College were
present for the ceremony, as well as Dave Johnson, President of HCJB World Radio. It was
exciting to see that some of the graduates are already producing Christian radio programs,
television spots and working at a local newspaper.
In August, the Ecuadorian geographic magazine, Gaia,
published its debut edition. Five of Duane’s photos were
included as part of an article about Ecuador’s volcanoes. The proceeds from the sale of the photos will help fund HCJB World Radio’s photography department.
The Condominium is Sold!
After having the place on the market for nine months, we closed on the sale of our condominium at the end of September.
Ministry Fund Deficit Wiped Out!
At the end of July, a deficit started appearing in the Birkey Ministry Fund. By the beginning of September, we needed $4500 to clear the debt. The deficit was a result of rising medical insurance costs and
educational expenses for Rachel and Nicole.
The Lord provided in amazing ways and as of September 30, there was a positive balance of $700 in the account!
Thank you for joining us as we give thanks to the Lord for His
