About Lighthouse Radio
Clive Welsh, a great friend and brother of mine in Belize, has been doing faithful ministry for decades. A big part of this is a local Christian radio ministry he runs called "Lighthouse Christian Radio". Located near the sea, the salt air is rough on equipment, including his radio tower.
The Need: Replace A Rusting Radio Tower!
I told Clive I would set up a GoFundMe for him and asked for a description of the need which follows:
"Lighthouse Christian Radio ministry, A Christian nonprofit ministry, has been on the air in San Pedro town Belize since July 15, 2004. In 2009 Galcom International installed a 40 foot tower on the roof of the building that houses the radio station giving up 70 feet. This is a four-bay-antenna system which enabled us to broadcast 24/7 to the entire island of Ambergris Caye and portions of Caye Caulker. Because of the elements, we are a block from the Caribbean Sea, corrosion and rust has taking taken a toll on the tower and antennas. We are very fortunate to have had 10 years with the equipment and we’re praying that we will be able to survive this hurricane season which started in June and ends in November.
Because everything will need to be replaced, we are considering the possibility of moving to a new location with a new broadcast tower, antennas, broadcast soundboard/mixer. The estimated price/cost would be $8,000. We are trusting for a mid September moving date in our new location or re-furbished at our current location."
How You Can Help!
The biggest need is $8,000 to replace the tower. Be praying also that this would be provided soon. Feel free to ask questions and I can pass those to Clive and possibly update these details over time. As well, you can talk with him directly on his Facebook page or view photos from recent ministry opportunities for him.
