11.18.09 :: Pawa Warena
We thank God for his continued provisions for the Ministry of Wantok Radio Light. Our share-a-thons are held each year in October and we had no funds to prepare for share-a-thon 2009. We just couldn't do anything but wait and depend on God for a miracle. That miracle came at the right time, and this time it came through Life Radio Ministries and other USA radio partners.

Because of that miracle, we were able to do a road show (a traveling Crusade, like the old fashioned “street meetings” in the USA) starting in Mt. Hagen and going through Kundiawa - Goroka - Kainatu - Ramu and Lae. On the crusades over 600 people gave their lives to the lord. Offerings given on the rallies went over K10,000.00. Many people gave their vehicles for use and others provided accommodation to the our team. Praise God! We were able to build momentum for share-a-thon 2009.

In the week following we were able to raise K707,042.93.

This year has been a very successful year for the Ministry. It is reaping the fruits of it’s past seven years. Every day since April, on average 6-8 people called in on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays particularly in the evenings for salvation prayer and 2-3 on other days calling to receive Christ. Next year, we hope to increase those numbers to ten and above per day.

I believe the harvest truly is plenty and ready!

I wish you a very merry Christmas and a blessed Happy New Year!

Pawa Warena
Managing Director

05.25.07 :: Papua New Guinea has Georgia on their mind!
Over two different summers, young ladies from Papua New Guinea interested in Christian broadcasting performed college level internships at NewLife FM, WMVV.

Thelma Ninjapa and Paula Mini participated in summertime activities at WMVV, learning various aspects of broadcasting, audio production, office management, and promotion. During their stay, they were guests in the home of Joe and Jenny Emert, founders of WMVV. Today, both are back home and on staff with our sister-station, Wantok Radio Light.

Some Papua New Guineans are now scratching their heads, trying to figure out what "y'all" means! Thanks to a willing staff at WMVV, Thelma and Paula have been better equipped as broadcasters, and our lives have been enriched by their friendship!
