In my hectic, always-spinning world of order fulfillment, it’s easy to get caught up in the process and not think about what all this gear is actually going to DO out there in the real world. So I was happy to hear from one of my favorite customers recently, reminding me of what a force for change broadcast equipment can be.
Gene Sharp, of Christian International Radio, has built missionary radio stations all over the world. His latest achievement is Amazing Grace Radio 105.1 FM in Rwanda, Africa. Thanks to a 1,000-Watt transmitter with a 5-bay antenna system (and a lot of hard work by Gene and his colleagues), Amazing Grace Radio is reaching out to over 16 million people in five countries, airing music, news, preaching and teaching 24 hours a day, every day. It’s humbling to think that all this grew from a few lines on some order forms, but most importantly, from people who dream of a better world and have the gumption to make their dream come true.
