Portable Missionaries

A recent Assist News Service article (May 2, 2001) looks at the fascinating topic of portable missionaries. The focus of the article is Galcom International, a Canadian based missions group, which, since 1989 has invaded some of the remotest regions of the world by means of around 371,000 fix-tuned radios (AM, FM and short-wave). Galcom International Director, Allan T. McGuirl, refers to these radios as portable missionaries, because, as he says, they have no head, no arms or legs, but they can go into any country. They don't need a visa or a holiday; they speak the language immediately upon arrival and they work for 24 hours a day without a complaint." If you'd like text copy of the article let me know: Or you could get your own copy from the Assist News Service web site above. To find out more about Galcom, visit their web site:

CCrane is a very interesting company that has a few different types of radios and antennas. They try and choose the best quality products for the price. They send out a paper catalog for free.

Five students from the Robert Wagner Graduate School for Public Service at New York University spent three weeks in Mozambique in January, collecting data as to degree of usefulness of wind-up radios in a country where more than half the population is illiterate. About 7,300 donated radios were distributed to religious and community leaders in the months following the devastating winter floods of 2000.
