OPPORTUNITIES FOR SERVICE
Letio Faka-Kalisitiane (Tonga Christian Radio 93.1FM)
Willy Florian is Station Manager of Letio Faka-Kalisitiane and has come to understand the grace and love of God, and been trained for ministry.
He shares his testimony: “Here in the Island people thought that receiving eternal life is through good works and going to church, abiding to the pastor and be active to every religious duty. But the Radio has been helping us be set free from this big lie from the devil, that it is through having a close relationship with Jesus and having him into your heart, and it is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.
Many people are calling in everyday and make that step of faith with us over the phone and in person, crying and saying if they would have known this earlier, people coming to the Radio station to learn more about this relationship with Jesus. Myself I’m a living testimony … through the Radio I’m Saved, Equipped and Used, and if God can do it to me, he can do the same to the people throughout the Pacific Islands Amen!”
FUNDRAISER EVENT FOR TCRFM
On 27 October, we held a special fundraiser event at Northcross church in Auckland – with 150 attending and more than $5,200 raised. $1,200 was designated to keeping the station operational while approx. $4,000 has been designated as seed-funding to start clearing a new site, close to the current location, where we will construct a new radio station and ministry centre.
Our special guest, HRH Princess Mele Siu’ilikutapu of Tonga, told the audience that her late father (Prime- Minister Tu’i Pelehake) granted approval for the station back in 1988. The first official broadcast was made on 4 July 1993 – as a special celebration to coincide with the birthday of His Majesty King Taufa’ahau Tupou IV. It was his desire to have a Christian Radio Station after visiting New Zealand and hearing Radio Rhema.
Willy Florian shared the story of the radio station, that has continued to broadcast from the current site at Fangaloo Houmakelikao since 2001, touching lives with the gospel all across Tonga. Listeners will often phone or visit the station – to thank Willy or the radio hosts for their spiritual inspiration – and to ask for prayer, often in desperate circumstances.
We’re so grateful to God for what He is doing through this small, but vital, ministry in the Kingdom of Tonga and appreciate your support in helping to fulfil the desire of the late King Tupou IV to share the message of hope in Jesus with the people of Tonga!
On behalf of everyone at MotiVate and Tonga Christian Radio, Malo ’Aupito! (Thank You!) and have a blessed Christmas!
