I am raising money to fund a mission trip/internship to Bonaire to climb radio towers and test the density of the steel. I am also going to test for corrosion and make sure the towers can still broadcast Christian radio.
yay, I've hit 25% of my goal. this is so cool thank you everyone.
I will be doing an engineering internship with TWR International (formerly Trans World Radio) in Bonaire, which is an island right off the coast of Venezuela in the Caribbean. It is the little island right next to Curacao above Venezuela.
I am studying Mechanical Engineering at California State University Sacramento but have felt called by God to serve Him in His global ministry to reach lost people for Christ. To that end, I have applied and been accepted to TWR’s internship program to work with their radio tower maintaining department. I will be helping them test the metal on the towers for corrosion and test the density of the metal to make sure that the towers are still stable by climbing the 400ft towers.
Since TWR is a faith-based mission, I am required to find both prayer partners and financial partners to support this ministry. For this 2 month internship, TWR has asked me find twenty regular prayer partners and to raise a total of $5,064 by May 2015. This financial support will cover my work and travel expenses, rent and utilities, orientation, debriefing and administrative fees and provide me with a modest salary to pay for my living expenses and meals.
TWR (www.twr.org) is a global media ministry delivering biblical content in over 230 languages by radio, Internet, mobile phones and mp3 players in over 160 countries. Everyday TWR has the opportunity and privilege of “Speaking Hope to the World” and “Leading people from doubt, to decision, to discipleship.” TWR uses media to broadcast the gospel of Christ to people who might not otherwise hear the message of hope. TWR engages in recording, translating and contextualizing, and broadcasting biblical messages in the heart language of the listener. TWR reaches people in the darkest corners of the earth where missionaries (and sometimes even local pastors) cannot go.
