South Koreans send balloons up with care packages and radios.

FEBC has been reaching the people of North Korea for years through AM and shortwave radio, and in October 2020 we launched a new 200,000 watt AM station to boost our coverage. The new station covers the entire country 18 hours a day. Anyone with an AM radio can hear the Good News that God loves them, and that there is hope for this life and the one to come.

While the people of North Korea can’t phone or write to us, we know from North Korean refugees that people are listening and lives are being changed through the broadcasts. When FEBC first started broadcasting to China in the late 1940s, it took years to hear from people during the difficult reign of Mao Tse-Tung. We eventually received many thousands of letters indicating that Christian outreach and discipleship radio had saved and sustained millions through the decades, until the country opened up. We believe that God is using this ministry to North Korea similarly.
