A group from the U.S. traveled to Madagascar in May of this year to
dedicate our new station, Madagascar World Voice. Operational since
March, the transmitters at MWV cover everything from India to the
east, Africa, the Mid-East, Europe and western Russia to the north,
and southern Africa and South and Central America to the west.
We were delighted to see the newly completed station, the three 365
feet tall antennas, and the Malagasy people responsible for having
put it all together over the past ten years. One night we hosted the
entire staff of 25 people to a dinner as our “Thank you!” for all
Andy Baker speaking at the Dedication event
on May 19, 2016.
The next morning we returned to the site for the
dedication event. Dignitaries from the capital city of Antananarivo
were there, plus about 300 local people who responded to the open
invitation to take part in the Dedication. Andy Baker, World
Christian Broadcasting’s Vice President, read the remarks that
Charles Caudill, our president, would have read if illness had not
prevented him from making the trip. Following remarks from Kevin
Chambers, our Vice President for Engineering, the local mayor,
Madagascar’s Minister for Communication, and the Minister for
Telecommunication all spoke. All present were then invited to tour
the large building in which all the electronics, the transmitters,
and the offices are found.
Susan Perry, daughter of one of World
Christian Broadcasting’s founders, joined us for the Dedication.
In spite of obstacles beyond number, God has cleared
a path for us to be broadcasting every day from both Alaska and
Madagascar. Between the two stations, our signals cover virtually
the entire inhabited world. Many of you who are reading these words
have contributed financially to the completion of this project.
Pray that God will continue to bless the writers as well as the
engineers and other technical people who work together to produce
the programming from both our stations. We covet your prayers and
your financial support!
