Laying the groundwork

In April 2021, the base for the new 340-foot FM tower was cast in preparation for the arrival of the tower later this year, to replace the aging, rusted tower in place now. The purchase of the tower was sponsored by EMA-USA, an organization of ELWA supporters who are keen to keep ELWA Radio broadcasting the gospel of Jesus Christ throughout Liberia. Even in the internet age, radio is still the most-used media in Africa. In Liberia, radio reaches remote areas where there may not be a Christian church or witness. ELWA Radio has been on the air since 1954, and the new tower will ensure it will be heard for years to come.
