Our Target Audience

With a population of almost 600 million souls in Latin America, we ask, how can we reach them all in our lifetime? With the ever-growing Latino population in our own neighborhoods in the United States, you may ask, what tools can I use to share the message of Jesus with them? 

At World Christian Broadcasting we have made it our mission to answer these two questions through the production, broadcasting of quality Spanish-Speaking radio programs that share the message of Jesus to Latin Americans everywhere.  Our daily goal is to reach people with His message where they are involved in their everyday lives.   

World Christian Broadcasting’s Latin American Voice, La Voz Alegre (The Happy Voice).

La Voz Alegre (The Happy Voice) is World Christian Broadcasting's voice to Latin America.  Rex Morgan, our Sr. Producer for Latin America produces this one-hour magazine format radio program with the needs of Latin Americans in mind. This can be challenging due to the diverse nature of 21 distinct nations that have chosen Spanish as their official language. Portuguese will be our next Latin American frontier. 

Broadcasting Schedule

La Voz Alegre (The Happy Voice) is heard weekly on three different radio frequencies on three different days each week. Sunday nights people in Cuba, Santo Domingo, and Puerto Rico tune in at 21:00-22:00 on frequency 800 AM.

We are making an effort to reach Latin Americans in all 21 Spanish-speaking countries through WINB  9265 KHz (or 9.265 MHz) shortwave Monday nights at 6:00-7:00 PM EST.  Also, on WWCR shortwave 6115 kHz (or 6.115 MHz) every Wednesday evening at 6:00-7:00 PM EST.

A church is born! Sitiecito, Cuba

Listeners gather around their radios every Sunday night to listen to La Voz Alegre (The Happy Voice) all across Cuba. God knows who is listening and learning about freedom in Christ, and God cares. 

Then letters arrive at the P.O. Box for the church of Christ in Havana. Not quite a birth announcement but it is a wonderful new beginning. The word of God has taken hold in the hearts of people and they ask for help to study God's word. Our follow-up team in Cuba goes into action with: love, letters, lessons, and visits.

 

Roberto Pino of Havana, Cuba writes:

I'm sharing a message of the journey to Sitiecito, a small town that is more than 300 Km from Havana, and where we have listeners of the program, La Voz Alegre. Several of them were also recently baptized.

They have been in contact with Tony Hernandez, and during a trip they made to Matanzas they were baptized. Now they are continuing to study with us and want to start to meeting as a church. 

During our visit with our new brothers and sisters in Sitiecito we were able to instruct them on how to get started. To the glory of God, there is now a new congregation in the province of Villa Clara, Cuba. And this, thanks also, to the work we are doing together.

 

Ephesians 3:20-21

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever!

Amen.
