Even the potential threat of violence at the volatile Mexican border won't stop the gospel of the Lord from being told.
New Christian-Spanish radio station KVFE 88.5 FM in Del Rio, Texas have began a dream many years in the making.
"It has been a long-held dream of missionary broadcasters to saturate the U.S.-Mexico border with Christian Spanish radio programs," said Glenn Lafitte, CEO of Inspiracom, and who, along with a number of Inspiracom personnel, remain missionaries with Reach Beyond. "The border region is home to increasing levels of crime, kidnappings, murders, drug trafficking and a host of other violent activities. Very few places in the world need the gospel more than this region."

With operating stations at almost every major border, the Christian-Spanish radio stations are able to reach a potential of 30 million people who live along the increasingly conflict-laden border.
"We've heard countless stories of lives being turned around and decisions made for Jesus Christ through these radio stations," said Wayne Pederson, president and CEO of Reach Beyond. "Since Mexico doesn't allow full-time Christian stations, Inspiracom's radio stations may be the only way some residents can hear the good news in Spanish, news that will not only bring salvation, but also bring healing and restoration to their lives."
Inspiracom, a partner ministry, was started by Reach Beyond in 1978 as World Radio Network Inc. (WRN) until 2013.
