This is Radio Alternativa, the Christian radio where we serve. We have an audience of 500,000 and we are consistently reaching new listeners! One of our current URGENT needs is for a generator at the radio station. Here in Paraguay we are
If you noticed our thermometer on the right hand side of the website, we are raising money for a 17 kva generator. A generator will allow us to continue to broadcast to the greater population despite recurrent power surges and outages. That would make us the ONLY radio station to continue on air when the power goes out. Since we are the only Christian radio station in southern Paraguay and we broadcast the Good News 24 hours a day (with 12 hours live programming) we feel that a generator is an important tool for us to beat out the competition on the airwaves and to encourage new listeners to tune in to local news, weather and high quality, Christian programming.
Our goal is to buy the generator before we go on furlough, this May and currently we are 31% of the way to our goal. If you or your church would like to help us purchase this needed ministry tool, please click here or on the green donate button on the right hand side of this blog and specify that your gift is for the "Paraguay Generator."
Since the radio is the best means of communication in this country (we have no state or local newspaper), we feel like we would really have an edge on the airwaves if we could continue transmitting the hope of Jesus in good weather and in bad weather. Thank you for helping us spread the Word!
