Balloons take radios into North Korea

We have two methods for distributing radios into North Korea: Smuggling them across the border from China; and floating them across from the south in helium or hydrogen-filled balloons!

In both situations FEBC works with other specialist ministries. We supply the radios and care packages to go with them. The packages include chocolate bars, small denominations of U.S cash (easily exchangeable without raising questions), an MP3 player with special messages from the south, and some medical supplies.

The group in China have managed to distribute 2000 radios into the North over the last three years. The balloon ministry has sent up over 900 radio and care packages since 2012.
FEBC South Korea has been reaching out to the North for 60 years, using our high-powered AM stations in Incheon and Jeju. With North Korean defectors on staff as producers and announcers, FEBC broadcasts testimony programmes, biblical dramas, music, and news from the South and around the world. Please pray that these radios will make it into North Korean households, and that all who hear will experience freedom in Christ.
