TWR Guam suffers damage, programs off the air

By July 13, 2006

Guam (MNN) — Trans World Radio is asking people to pray and to give to help put Christian programming back on the air from the Island of Guam.

Last Friday, part of one of their antennas fell during what they’re calling, ‘heavy weather.’ While the towers weren’t damaged, the antenna hanging between them was. That’s forced programming off the air for four days.

What’s amazing is TWR needed extra help. A visiting church from the United States had been on Guam for other work, but became available to assist with the reconstruction work. Yesterday, TWR reported that half of the antenna was back on the air, while the rest of it was expected to be fully restored by today.

This stresses the importance of needed on-going financial support of TWR for unexpected repairs.

Pray that the broadcasts will be even more effective in reaching out to Christians and non-Christians alike in the Asian world.
