The widely heard Christian Radio station in Papua New Guinea, Wantok Radio Light turns seven years today (January 14, 2009).

The station which ministers the Gospel of God through the power of radio has penetrated through the rugged hills, mountains, terrains and jungles of Papua New Guinea.

From the remote Tari to isolated Milne Bay islands where newspapers and commercial radio signals could not reach, Wantok Radio signal on shortwave band was so powerful in the pillows and beaches of the isolate populace.

Even in the jungles of West Papua in Indonesia to Okinawa in Japan, across to Changchun in China, Wantok Radio Light signal reaches Gods’ people.

In Papua New Guinea, Wantok Radio Light has brought the Gospel to people isolated as one would imagine, yet shows the omnipresence of God.

When Papua New Guinea struggles to address its social problems including rape, murder, robbery, HIV/AIDS etc, Wantok Radio Light, the only inspirational radio station promotes the unconditional love of God to all mankind to consume, digest and experience the power of Holy Ghost.

In this time when Papua New Guinea struggles to survive in the international system, the country is yet denying the fact that power of God is all the country needs, thus, Wantok Radio Light tries to promote the concept.

Wisdom only emanates from God. Therefore, believing and having fellowship with God without any compromise is paramount. Radio Wantok Light has been trying fervently in the past seven years to promote the positive aspect of living that God loves and expects from humanity.

Past seven years is history but the future is yet challenging. However, God is good and He will take this station to a higher level where men and women of God shall be blessed.

With the above, I would like to congratulate Wantok Radio Light on its 7th Birth Day. When this powerful station grows older, it depicts the wisdom and caliber it possesses and will grow in strength within the power of Holy Ghost.

Without the hard working men and women with the station, the radio station would not come this far. Thus, I humbly salute those who are behind the running and operation of the station.

In financial terms, the station, I believe has been operating on donations in cash and kind. Those, whether churches, business houses, and individuals who have given and donated, I pray that God shall bless them ten times more then what they have given.
Thank you and long live Wantok Radio Light.
