(Guam)–Topping the news, the Pacific island of Guam is still reeling after being hit head-on by a devastating supertyphoon this weekend. With sustained winds of up to 150 miles an hour, Trans World Radio’s equipment collapsed under the storm’s battering. TWR’s Rich Greene. “Three of our five antennae curtains, which operate short wave to Asia were completely shredded. [And], we are now off the air trying to repair the other two antennas in order to, Lord willing, be, in a limited way, back on the air broadcasting the good news of Christ by Wednesday or Thursday.” Greene says the two surviving antennas provide service for China, and Southeast Asia. “We need prayer that the Lord would enable our staff, all of whom are safe, to [be able to] give them the strength to weather this devastating time.” Pray too for the listeners whose daily “ray of hope” will be temporarily extinguished in many places.
