Radio Tower.


Aid Sudan, an organization with a large focus on health education and evangelism, came to visit us last year to discuss the possibility of building a radio tower on the compound. The tower would broadcast the gospel and public health messages to small hand-held radios that would be distributed within the community.

Well, I'm happy to announce that two weeks ago, the first part of the tower was dug.

Yes, dug.

Two engineers, loaned out from a German NGO named Diguna, came to plan out the project and lay the foundation.

It took them longer than expected to dig the necessary holes (as the ground was more marble than dirt), but eventually they finished. Then they re-enforced the holes with rebar, and poured the concrete. I’m told it must settle for three weeks before the tower can be erected.

Sam and Daniel, the diligent Diguna staff.
It’s an exciting project, with a potential for much fruit. I can’t wait to see what God does with it.
