Wow! What a year of blessings 2022 has been at Samaritan Radio Network!
We started the year off with the need for two new 5-kilowatt FM transmitters to replace the 20+ year-old transmitters which were in a state of disrepair.
What does all this mean? It means consistent, uninterrupted broadcasting at the highest power that we are licensed to broadcast. These transmitters are also designed to save up to 30% in energy cost. Ultimately, it means many more people will be able to hear the Gospel of Christ.
We were excited to find out that an independent survey conducted in 2018 showed that….
In a recent trip to Honduras, Arold, Stephany, and I spent a few days visiting some of our radio towers and the radio studio in downtown Tegucigalpa, where we were able to look at needs of the studio and talk about issues with other stations. There are so many needs, but each need is an opportunity to do even more to get the Gospel message out to more souls. At one point in the meeting, we had to stop and reflect on what God had provided in nine short months. It brought tears to our eyes, because we knew that Samaritan Radio is His work and what looks impossible to us is always possible with God! We were able to set some goals and priorities for 2023 and going forward.
****Our top priority is a safety concern with our tower in La Ceiba. In 2020, a company was paid to do repair work, but unfortunately, they did inferior work which actually has made the tower more dangerous. The rainy/windy season is coming, so we need to do something sooner rather than later. It is going to cost $7,000 to either take down the tower or repair it. If we take the tower down, the cost of replacing it later would be very costly. If we repair the tower, we keep the option of getting the station back on the air, or it can be a source of income to rent space on it to other companies. Please pray for wisdom as we strive to obey the Lord in this matter.****
