Greece - AMG International recently expanded its regional broadcasting license of Kanali 7, a radio station in Cyprus. The move allows them to reach more than three hundred thousand people with the hope of the Gospel.

Combining Christian messages and music with news and discussion of issues that concern Cyprus from a Christian perspective, the station is heard in many places on the island in both Greek and English languages. Programs include devotionals, the reading of the New Testament in English and Greek every night, "Focus on the Family" with Dr. James Dobson five times per week, and "Adventures in Odyssey" twice per week. There is even a program in Russian twice a week, because there are so many Russian business people as well as tourists that come to Cyprus.

The team is currently working to get a license that will allow a broadcast to the entire island.
