Lee Sonius, EMAUSA Director, recently visited Liberia in person to provide guidance on the construction of the new ELWA radio tower. The existing tower, standing 350 feet high, is about 60 years old and in poor condition. Before the new radio tower can be erected, the cement foundations must be laid and the cement cured. Lee partnered with Kyle Shropshire whose family has constructed radio towers in the United States for many years. EMAUSA, with Kyle's expert assistance, expects to complete the tower's construction in late 2021 or early 2022.
In addition to seeing the tower foundation completed, Lee visited with ELWA missionaries and saw all the ministries we support. This included the hospital Malnutrition program, ELWA Academy where we sponsor 60 full scholarships, the radio station and the progress on the building of the new International Church of Monrovia on the ELWA campus. Lee said, "The Covid-19 pandemic slowed projects down but they running full speed at ELWA now."
While in Liberia, Lee was able to see the progress on the construction of the new sanctuary being built for the International Church of Monrovia (ICM). This new church will provide new and needed space for the Evangelical Church of Liberia (ECOL) staff to congregate and have their meetings.
