TWENTY Seven volunteers from the Seventh Day Adventist Church (SDA) have successfully completed a weeklong intensive training on Radio Broadcasting facilitated for by the Adventist Word Radio (ARW) last week.
The group included volunteers from throughout the Solomon Islands and also from Vanuatu.
The training was part of the Solomon Islands SDA Mission’s plans of nurturing and grooming up future broadcasters who will help spread the gospel of Christ through Radio.
This also coincides with the Church’s plans of establishing the Hope FM radio broadcast here in the Solomon Islands.
“The volunteers had done tremendously well the past week. Having gone through very long tutorials and then putting their knowledge into practice with the various instruments and equipments during each of their sessions.
“I believe that all of the volunteers now have some experience and knowledge of what to expect and how to perform when given the opportunity inside a real radio station. Soon we will have that for our volunteers as the Hope Radio FM station will soon be launched,” Training Coordinator, James Bouro informed this paper yesterday.
Mr Bouro meanwhile also took time to thank the Adventist World Radio for availing their personnel to facilitate and help train and set up the FM station for Solomon Islands.
“Words can’t describe how thankful we are as a Mission to the AWR and especially the three men who took time to come help us start up this FM radio and also giving our soon to be broadcasters the skill and knowledge that they have now acquired,” Mr Bouro said.
