CHRISTIAN radio communication network Radio Light has extended its coverage to Tari-Pori in Hela after local MP and Minister for Finance James Marape presented K250,000 towards costs.
Marape and local pastors, including his father,had to walk long distances without logistical support to preach.
He said those pastors travelled to places that some people may not want to do so voluntarily these days to take God’s message.
Marape said despite having to negotiate swift rivers, steep mountains and swamps, they are managing to reach inland areas where no roads connected.
“I am now commemorating their tireless call in spreading the gospel to those souls living in far distances and want the Christian radio to open up coverage in the electorate so that those souls out there can be saved through broadcast preaching.”
Radio Light Christian broadcasting network chairman Andrew Ogil thanked Marape for his efforts and funding.
He said inspirational messages helped people become better leaders and those leaders moved on to build nations.
