USA (HCJB/MNN) — Paul and Sylvia Hollinger were honored as the first recipients of the Timothy Award for their longtime partnership to HCJB Global Radio.
The Pennsylvania couple worked at the Lancaster offices of WDAC-FM 94.5, and have helped support many mission projects. Along with WDAC-FM, the Hollingers paired with HCJB Global to construct the first full-time Christian radio station in Papua, New Guinea.
Through their partnership, they have also helped fund projects such as
the one-minute daily radio program, “Beyond The Call,” hosted by Dr. Ron Cline;
the Russian satellite radio network, New Life Radio; the Charity Fund
for needy patients at HCJB Global Hands’ Vozandes hospitals in Ecuador;
and the Turn the Radios On outreach to put solar-powered, fixed-tuned
radios into the hands of potential listeners.
Dr. Ron Cline, chairman of the board, said that the Hollinger couple stood out for their exceptional faithfulness and partnership to HCJB Global. Cline presented the award to the couple this past August.
Paul Hollinger managed WDAC-FM for many years and most recently worked
as chief operating officer until his retirement on Dec. 31, 2006.
Please continue to pray for the team they helped establish in the field. Through a dynamic
integration of media and healthcare around the world, HCJB Global is
ministering in more than 100 countries. The gospel is aired in more
than 120 languages and dialects.
Local believers are being trained as missionaries,
pastors, broadcasters and healthcare providers, and thousands of healthcare patients are coming to Christ.
