The Light FM Trans World Radio Sister Station

West Africa Needs a Spiritual Oasis

You’ve probably heard distressing news reports from Nigeria: Boko Haram’s kidnapping of schoolgirls, attacks by nomadic herdsmen on church congregations.

Africa’s most-populous country has lots going for it, the continent’s dominant petroleum industry helping to fuel Nigeria’s emerging-power status on the world stage. But the division of the country between the mostly Muslim north and mostly Christian south is a factor in high poverty rates, education shortcomings and national instability.

Now TWR (Trans World Radio) is launching a major upgrade of its West Africa Transmitting Station so it can greatly enhance its gospel broadcasting to Nigeria’s 190 million people. The Oasis project will add a 200,000-watt AM transmitter to focus on the so-called Giant of Africa.

Preliminary construction is already underway at the station, so 10% of The Light FM’s Fall Impact Days will go directly towards this project as you, The Light FM and TWR join hands to make this incredible project a reality.
