PNG Governor funds local radio ministry


SANDAUN Governor Simon Solo  this week presented K100,000 cheque to the christian broadcasting network,  Wantok Radio Light, to extend its coverage to the northern part of PNG border province with the gospel messages.

The funds were derived from the Governor's K1 million grant that are given to all members of parliament.

"This is the ten percent of my one million Kina," Governor Solo said.

This is not the first time that the Sandaun Governor has given tithes of his public funds. Earlier, the governor has given ten percent of his constitutional grants to all churches in his electorate and also a K50, 000 cheque to Radio Gabriel, a sister network of Catholic-owned radio station, Radio Maria.

Governor Solo said everything belongs to God and it is only appropriate to give it back to God in various ministries.

Governor Simon Solo is one of the two Governors in the country to have given such huge sums of money to the Christian broadcasting network.  Western Province Governor Dr Bob Danaya has also given K100, 000.
Wantok Radio Light is a listener supported radio network spreading the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ 24-hours-a-day, seven days a week and three hundred sixty five days a year.

Paru Aihi, member of the Christian Radio Governing Council, received the cheque in the presence of the station's managing director and staff members.
