Pastor Wesley called me from Liberia yesterday morning to announce that the Radio Station had just broadcast its first test. He says the signal is strong and sounds very excited. An old contact, Pastor Sawyer (from Queens, NY) helped when he heard the news about the fire. I am grateful for that sign of support. May God bless this endeavor as Pastor Wesley continues to work while its day. This is a non-profit station so they are not able to sell advertisements. The generator that Service to Servants installed onsite runs on fuel oil. That is how they are able to produce electricity for the studio and transmitter.
Pastor Wesley says that the local church has about 85 people in Sunday attendance and that everyone is working together. I hope to one day return to Liberia and see all that has happened.
I came to the church this morning to open the doors for those who will commemorate the life and ministry of Dr. Louis Hertz. Dr. Hertz apparently was a great friend to those who have struggled with drug and alcohol addiction.
A friend that I met through the Union Gospel Mission (Leonard from Lincoln) asked if they could host the Memorial Service for Dr. Hertz here. The folks are just starting to arrive.
Leonard introduced me to Pastor Charles Kellar who is participating in the Memorial. Pastor Kellar once was an Interim Pastor here at Bell Road.
