Praise the Lord! We are so excited that the Lord let us file for Station Construction Permits for 7 churches during the LPFM filing window. Although it is a smaller number than we had wished, the churches that decided to filel to build a radio station are churches that worked diligently through the process and showed that they are willing to put in the work needed to maintain a station. Please pray for the churches and these applications that God would grant them to each church and that these stations that will be built in the future would bring great glory and honor to Jesus Christ!
LPFM VIDEO UPDATE
A huge debt of gratitude to all of our faithful prayer warriors, financial supporters, and our encouragers who so faithfully help to carry the ministry through your personal interest in what God is doing through radio. One of the churches that filed for a station, during the LPFM filing window, was telling us that since they had stepped out by faith and decided to go ahead with a radio station, God had miraculously been providing ahead of time for the expenses that would be involved in building out this station.
As the hard work and intense labor progressed through the filing days, God gave us strength and caused each day to go smoothly for which we are very grateful. A special thanks to Martin Gibbs, our executive director and engineer, for much technical and engineering work that was accomplished. Because of his work, our churches were able to get the work done at a greatly discounted rate!
A Note About Our History
Thank you so much for visiting our web site. KaraTek International came about through the mutual work of co-founders Paul Williams and Martin Gibbs in Christian radio and other electronic ministries. Burdened by the scarcity of skills within churches to design and build complicated technical projects such as radio stations, we found that the Lord had been working in each of our lives to prepare us for this ministry.
Paul’s tenure as a missionary and pastor, work in technical fields, his education and experience worked together with Martin's skills to form the core of a team that has both depth of technical knowledge and the organizational abilities to follow a project from start to finish.
Martin's background in radio, design and construction of sophisticated electronic instruments, software engineering and management of a large design engineering department, is being used by God together with the rest of the team to further the spread of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Our main burden is to plant radio stations on the missions field so that those who have never had an opportunity to hear the Gospel may respond and find eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. In doing so, we also want to help churches in the USA and abroad communicate better, and reach the ultimate goal of evangelism through discipleship and the building of strong families as well.
Paul and Martin have been involved in starting stations not only in the United States but also in Japan, the Philippines, the Marshall Islands, Iraq, Liberia, Rwanda and have many projects that are in the planning stages today.
Please visit our web site often to learn of new projects at KaraTek. Please pray regularly for this ministry, and ask the Lord how else you can help spread the Gospel to this needy world.
If the Lord lays on your heart to donate to the ongoing ministries of KaraTek International, all transactions are secure, and tax deductible in the USA.
