We recently received a heartening email from our friend in Indonesia, Paulus Wiranto. At Shirelive we have consistently and faithfully supported Paulus in his vision and heart to reach beautiful Indonesian and Timorese people. Here is an encouraging report on what God is doing through Paulus and his team in Timor:
Two years ago we started a Radio Dian Mandiri station in Sabu. At almost the same time, Sabu became an independent province and provincial government offices were set up. If asked which has been more impactful, the people will quickly respond that radio has done more to enlighten and transform their society than anything else.
The government head and his staff have been faithful listeners and enthusiastic supporters since our station began. In fact, when we started planning this listeners’ meeting, they took over the preparations, providing the location, getting word out to the people and hosting our team while there. The Mayor even acted as MC for our nightly services and in front of the 7,000 attendees, said, “Thank you so much, Pak Paulus and Radio Dian Mandiri, for coming to Sabu! You have even assisted us, as the government, to communicate with our people and to bring strength and unity to this Island.” On the second day of our time there, all the government staff, 150 people, gathered for a day long seminar on ‘The Ten Laws of a Healthy Family’.
Thank you for your continuous support Church, it is definitely making a big difference!
