Step by Step
24 years ago, on a cold winter day, we began construction on a brand new Christian radio station. The WBGW radio tower was built, and over the next few months a building was erected, equipment was purchased and installed, and in July of 1990, 24-hour Christian broadcasting began. Over the next 24 years, the process was repeated again for 88.7 in Loogootee, 91.7 in Albion, and then 106.5 in Owensboro…until now. We are just about ready to begin the final phase of construction of WBFW, 94.5 fm, licensed to Smith Mills KY. The tower is up, the transmitter building in place, and we will be on the air as soon as God provides for the following equipment:
1) Transmitter - $38,000
2) Remote Control - $3,000
3) Emergency Generator - $18,000
4) Installation/Electrical/Security - $5,000
God has been obviously present and actively in charge of this program; and we are constantly amazed to see His provision for the project on a daily basis. On the day we erected the tower, He showed up to calm the wind that was preventing the crane from topping out the tower with the final 60 foot section…God IS Good!
Many of you have already given generously to move this project forward, and we are very thankful for that help! Please pray with us that others will step forward with an extra year-end gift to help complete this project in the next 90 days. More than 100,000 people will come under its daily broadcasting reach, and you can play a vital role in making it a reality as you pray and give!
Well, it’s December, and as we dive into the hectic, frantic pace of the Christmas Season, let’s purpose together to truly keep Christ in Christmas…and from all of us at Thy Word Network, a very Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year.
P.S. Be sure and check out the pictures on our web site of the new station …or look at Facebook to see what God has done!
