THE Seventh-Day Adventist Church in Southern Highlands is using television to strengthen and improve its work to change people’s lives.
The Mendi District Seventh-Day Adventist Church will telecast educational and vital information aimed to change people spiritually, physically and mentally.
Hundreds of church members from the Mendi-Munihu and Imbonggu district witnessed the groundbreaking ceremony for the 3ABN and Hope channel TV last Sunday.
3ABN and Hope channel TV project chairman Moses Palibe said the television programme would air health, education and religious programmes.
“Everyone needs to be balanced, both physically and spiritually and many leaders have failed because they only work to improve their physical lives,” he said.
He said the TV programme would be important to everyone.
Church leader Paki Endaso said the Tubiri community had always being very supportive and provided security to many of the church properties.
Endaso said although many outsiders claimed the community members were violent, the church did much to change youths and the TV programme would help further.
The Mendi district SDA church used its own funds to get the project off the ground.
Works and Implementation Minister Francis Awesa, who later assisted them, said it was an excellent job the church was doing to change people’s lives.
He gave K200,000 to the church for the completion of the important project and K10,000 each to all churches in the electorate.
