Happy Birthday, Kathleen!

Who can find a virtuous woman? 
for her price is far above rubies...
She stretches out her hand to the poor; 
yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.
Proverbs 31: 10 - 31

RADIO KAHUZI - New FM and SW Antennas in Our New Home!

Kathy and I are so Thankful for your Encouragement to us and BESI / Radio Kahuzi over the first 27 years from the Signature / Authorization on 4 July 1991, and the 26 years (Dec. 24) on the air as the first private broadcasting station in the D R Congo!

Kathy, Richard, Danny, Samuel, Pastor Gregoire, and Feza

The Governor and other radios officially recognized Kahuzi Radio 6210 Khz as "the Short-Wave station without comparison -- that has never been equaled." Of course, our desire is to hear His "Well Done" in Eternity for the Gospel Outreach and His Ministry of Reconciliation that He Himself is Doing daily!

Thank you for your Prayer and Encouragement as we begin anew with our New Broadcast Station in Bukavu with a new FM Antenna and our New SW Antenna that greatly Increases our Outreach!

We Praise the Lord for "His Working-Together" through You and us until He Calls us to His Great Reward Ceremony, the Soon-Coming Rapture of His Believers!

In His Love and Care, Keep Looking Up!
Richard and Kathy McDonald

Our Mothers

We join with others around the world today as we celebrate the lives of our mothers. Our's are home with the Lord, but never forgotten. We look forward to the glorious day when we will be reunited with them and our blessed Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Celebrated your birthday Richard on May 2, so far away from Grampian, PA. I took this photo of you with my little Brownie camera in your "Robin Hood" hat with the feather. I was thinking...he will become President someday. 

Your calling to become an "Ambassador for Christ" is far better. 

All our love and many more prayers, 
Barb and Smitty

"The McDonald Story" / Bringing Gospel Radio to the Congo


View our video giving an overview of God at work in the Democratic Republic of Congo opening the country to the very first non-governmental radio station in 1992.

Without training, funding or even a license the McDonald's, moved by faith with a vision from the Lord to use FM and Shortwave to encourage the people of D. R. Congo through (25) twenty-five years of war and personal struggles to remain steadfast and hopeful.

Let the Lord inspire you to reach out to a hurting world this Easter Season.
