Brief History

Comprising of six main islands, the Solomon Islands are actually a group of over 900 islands in total, covering 28,400 square km. During WWII, both the Allies and the Japanese were present in the region and engaged in a lot of fighting. There are reminders everywhere, with most of the runways used today originally built as airforce bases. A popular tourist attraction is to dive onto the many war-era wrecks.

Today

Around 700,000 people call the Solomon Islands home and while English is the official language, Solomons Pijin is more commonly used.

As with many of the Pacific nations, the capital Honiara is a bustling modern city at its centre, but you don’t have to travel far to be back amongst the traditional houses, roadside markets and potholed roads. However take a good look, because you will find exquisitely carved woodwork and delicious food being sold at these markets.

Fresh drinking water and sanitation is still an issue the local authorities are dealing with – with help from missionary organisations. Our mission is to provide the people with a trusted Christian radio service, particularly for the young people, to help them grow in their Christian faith and positively influence their nation.

Laef FM

We can currently be heard in six locations; Honiara, Gizo, Munda, Auki, Noro and Taro. Each station is independent and automated. The studios we are building in Honiara should be completed this year and we hope to engage a team to begin local, live broadcasting as soon as possible.

Laef FM’s ministry here is right on the brink of something amazing: we just need the right people to build and lead a great local team.

The Word for Today

We were delighted to introduce for 2020 a special 1-year edition of this very popular devotional – printed especially for Solomon Islanders.

Now the new 2021 edition is also available! Make sure you get your copy from one of our Board members or contact us through our website and we’ll pass on your request.
