To all the new Supporters and our long time members, welcome.
A few short weeks ago in the middle of September AWCB Inc. received an invitation. One we have been waiting for, for over 6 years. What you have been praying for over all these years, the invitation to submit an application for a permanent license.
The members of the submission committee appointed from the board started collecting the information needed to answer the questions that ACMA ask.
- What are the needs now and in the future of your community group?
- What are the people like that make up your community?
- Is what you are going to provide available on any other TV or radio service in the area?
- Do you have the support?
- Do you have the Management structure?
- Do you have the Tech support?
- Do you have the financial support?
These are the question every permanent license holder is asked every 5 years by the ACMA.
This is an exciting time. One that all the Member, Supporter, Sponsors, Volunteers, Committee and Board members past and present should be proud of. Without the prayer and financial support of every individual that has helped keep the Light on over these years AWCB Inc. wouldn’t have the chance to now put a submission together. To everyone that has helped, Thank you.
I feel very privileged to be the manager right now when AWCB Inc. are being given this opportunity to make this submission. But I feel we owe a great deal to the former manager and past and present board members of AWCB Inc. who with the help of the volunteers, planted, nurtured and protected the seed that we now may have the great privilege to harvest the fruits of. So to Stephen McDonald who has done a lot of hard work to keep the Light on over this time, Thank you.
I sound like it’s in the bag. So don’t get me wrong we haven’t got the license yet. As I write this newsletter there is still a mountain of information the committee needs to put together to answer the questions distinctly and correctly. Once all the hard work is done we won’t know if we are the successful applicants for some time. But in that time AWCB Inc. are asking for the most important part, as much prayer as possible. Nothing can be done without prayer. Prayer needs to cover everything we do anyway. When we are giving the answer to the world that is barely heard or understood these days nothing effective will happen without prayer. So please continue to pray and hopefully AWCB Inc. will receive a wonderful Christmas present this year.
Once again thank you all for your on going support. Hopefully the next Newsletter in February we will be able to report more good news.
