Suggested Donation: $100.00
The three-year campaign to expand TWRâ€™s gospel broadcasting to Latin America and the Caribbean has exceeded the $3.8 million goal.
TWR CEO Lauren Libby announced the success of the Power Up campaign to the media ministryâ€™s worldwide staff in a June email.
â€śI am overjoyed to announce that the financial need to upgrade the station from 100,000 watts to 450,000 watts has been met!â€ť Libby wrote. â€śThe transmitter has been ordered, the antenna array will be tuned in early July and, Lord willing, the sign-on will occur by the end of January.â€ť
The upgrade will boost TWRâ€™s signal to cover all of Cuba and more of Brazil, Venezuela, Colombia and Central America, making the Christian facility on the island of Bonaire the most powerful station in the Western Hemisphere. The potential audience for the TWRâ€™s daily Bible-based programming will double to about 100 million people.
The culmination of Power Up represents an answer to prayer for many listeners across Latin America and the Caribbean who have called for the signal boost and sometimes even donated to the fund drive out of scarce resources.
We are continuing to accept gifts for the Power Up project. Funds received over and above the goal will help pay for the increased electricity required to run the more powerful transmitter and will also help fund the first year of broadcasts.
