Story number 3 for 15 Feb 2000

By February 15, 2000

For the first time in nearly four years, SIM radio station ELWA in Monrovia, Liberia, in partnership with HCJB World Radio, is sending out programs via shortwave. The good news is the station is up and growing, adding a new transmitter, after having been destroyed during Liberia’s civil war in 1996. SIM’s Ron Frazee says it has been an answer to prayer. “Because the country itself is devastated, not much money is available in the country. So, they have one studio operating, broadcasting six hours a day in English and this new transmitter will simulcast those same six hours of English broadcasts. Now, those programs are going to be able to be heard all over Liberia.” Frazee says the broadcasts are sending the message of hope. “They know how much ELWA through the years has been appreciated by Liberian people. So, pray for them that they won’t get weary in their well-doing, pray that they will have what is needed to keep the ministry going, that Liberians who hear the broadcast will be supportive-pray for the spiritual health of those involved.”
