Within a year, the program was lengthened to 15 minutes and circa (ca.) 1970 the broadcast time of the program was changed to 6:00 pm on Sunday evenings. By 1972 the program was broadcast over ten radio stations including CFCW Camrose and CJDV Drumheller in Alberta, KARI Blaine in Washington, USA, CJIB Vernon in British Columbia, CFAM Altona in Manitoba, CKQS Oshawa, SCOT Aylmer, and CHYM Kitchener in Ontario, and WBRD Mount Clements and an unknown station in Benton Harbour, in Michigan, USA. The contents of the broadcast included a theme song, announcements, hymns, scripture, a sermon, and announcements. Reverend Gustav Sonnenberg delivered all the sermons from the first broadcast and the broadcast would be the same on all the radio stations with the exception of the announcements which would be specific to the stations.
