We are Committed!
On January 23rd over 400 people came together to celebrate 30 years of Christian television through Son Broadcasting. The theme “At All Cost” became the heart cry of renewal as people heard from the staff members the tremendous impact Son Broadcasting has had in their lives and heard the sobering messages from Erick Stakelbeck and Rod Hembree.
When we were preparing for this event the Lord reminded us of His faithfulness for over 30 years and, more importantly, His message to us: We are just beginning. The foundation has been set and we have had time to mature and accept the responsibility that was handed to us by our Father, I heard strongly in my heart, “Are you ready to give Me everything that’s required, ‘at all cost,’ and allow My will in My ministry?” The answer has been a six year process. Our response is a resounding “we are ready and willing and have counted the cost. We trust You to lead us and protect us as we walk this out.”
How do we begin?
First we put things in order. He spoke to us over three years ago to combine both locations. To bring our staff and resources under one roof so that we will be of one heart and at the same time save tremendous amounts of money on overhead. Our Santa Fe and Albuquerque buildings are for sale. The TV station and Radio station are NOT FOR SALE.
Secondly, we are in the process of upgrading our studio equipment including a new transmitter. We are beginning to work on grants and raise funds; whatever it takes to get this done. Our staff has great God-given talents, but we are held back by old technology and spending way too much time and money on the end product.
Both of these moves will allow us to serve our community in a much greater way. We will have the freedom and tools to produce high quality programs and features that touch every age and culture. It opens up opportunities for ministries and individuals to share their work and lives with our viewers. Son Broadcasting is about bringing people into a relationship with Jesus, Yeshua. In this hour, the focus is to prepare the hearts of the people for the Groom.
Son Broadcasting covers 97% of New Mexico and, thanks to Rod Hembree, Son Broadcasting is also streaming worldwide and has recently been added to ROKU with our own channel coming soon.
To run any ministry or business takes financial resources. Over the years we have made adjustments to save money and resources wherever we can. This has not been easy. We covet your prayer and financial support like never before. Stand in agreement with us for supernatural intervention. We expect God to bring us through just as He has from the start.
It doesn’t take much to see that our nation, starting with our families and Judeo-Christian values, are not just being attacked but are sadly being destroyed. We, however, do not wrestle with flesh and blood but spiritual wickedness in high places. So, though we continue to fight for our rights to broadcast and our freedom of speech, we know the opportunity for broadcasting the Gospel has never been greater. If you know someone who is interested in our properties, let us know. If you have a building that you have been asking God to use for His glory, let us know.
You can help us in so many ways; advertise, make a grant or donation, recommend testimonies of musicians, volunteer to become a prayer partner, intercede for us. This is your Christian TV station and now is the time to support it!

Strength For The Weary…
by Birga Alden | AM730 Morning Show Host
Examining the world around us, we see wickedness being celebrated while Biblical and moral values are being challenged at every turn. It can make our spirit weary, longing to be set free from this corruption.
It’s time to Son bathe. The antidote to the wickedness of the world is to immerse ourselves in the Holiness of the Word. Turning our faces to the Son, allowing His beauty and glory to wash over us, will quickly change a heaviness of heart to a joyfulness of spirit.
Doing a quick web search for inspirational verses, many sites will point to key passages like Isaiah 40:31 “but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
This verse is indeed inspiring! We encourage you to take a moment to read the entire chapter of Isaiah 40. It’s like pulling the camera back from a close-up shot of the eagle, to reveal the grandeur of the universe, and God’s authority over it all.
Consider verse 26: “Lift your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one, and calls them each by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing.”
God is not shocked or surprised by the condition of our world. In His infinite love for us, He gave mankind free will. In the freedom of that choice, many have rejected Him and His ways. But hope is not lost! Those who have surrendered their lives to Jesus the Messiah know freedom from the bondage of sin. We Believers, in turn, can show His light through our lives and express His love to those who are still held captive by the world.
Son Broadcasting’s heart of ministry is just that – being a light in the darkness with programming designed to point the hearts of man to the glory of God. Having just celebrated our 30th anniversary, we are more determined than ever to continue the mission that the Lord has laid before us.
During the anniversary banquet, we heard from QuickStudy’s Rod Hembree. He shared from God’s Word both the warnings for those who choose to reject and encouragement for those who choose to obey the Lord. It was a sobering reminder that God does not take sin lightly. Nor does He fail to bless those who faithfully walk in His ways and serve Him. Then, Erick Stakelbeck went on to sound the warning about the infiltration of Islam and anti-Semitism into the United States. His message was not to leave guests fearful, but to serve as a challenge to take notice of what is transpiring within our government, and within our borders. Standing with Israel will be essential in the days to come as we may not be able to count on our leaders to do so.
2014 will be full of challenges, but we need not succumb to weariness. If you find yourself in a place of discouragement, reach out for Holy refreshment. Allow the body of Christ to surround you, and the comforting arms of the Lord to embrace you. Our prayer is that Son Broadcasting will also play a vital role in inspiring you. May the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob renew your strength. Remain strong and encouraged…do not grow weary, for our God is an awesome God and He will see you through to the very end.
It Takes All of Us!

KCHF Channel 11 has been on the air now for 30 years. I have had the privilege, along with my husband Marci, to be part of this great organization from the very beginning with Blackie and Angie Gonzales. Our Father God is using this channel to bring many souls into the kingdom. We have seen many spiritual, emotional and physical healings as well as many awesome miracles. The very fact that KCHF Channel 11 is still on the air is one of those miracles. It takes you and me and the family of God to keep it going.
Every day great men and women of God share their testimonies giving hope to others.
Last month at our Pearl Anniversary Celebration of 30 years, two great men of God came and spoke to the Body of Christ on what is taking place in the world today. I am in total agreement that our country is in a crisis and that we are living in the last days. I believe we must continue to pray that the Body of Christ wake up and stand up for righteousness, for our King Jesus Christ is coming soon to take His bride home. Let us be great and faithful witnesses everywhere we go and let us support Son Broadcasting, for this is a vehicle that goes where we can’t go. Generously give whatever God puts in your heart and continue to pray for the staff and for each other. For soon and very soon, we shall see Jesus coming in the clouds.
God Bless You,
Pastor Dinah Baca
