Studio Roof Project Updates
24 November 2015
There are some very interesting engineering developments happening on the top floor of River Park. When you compare the photos from our last update to the most current ones, you will notice that some of the newly erected structures have been taken down again! This is not because of some mistake on the part of the engineers, but rather a better way forward on erecting the roof. The cross beams are very large and have been constructed in smaller segments. This is not only for ease of transport and getting the steel 4 storeys up by crane, but from what we understand also impacts the final structural integrity. The erected segments have come down, and will now be bolted, 3 segments per stretch, before being lifted into place. In the meantime the old roof is fast disappearing and the occasional rain shower serves as a "cooling-down" and "shower" function for the workers! All in all everything is progressing really well and we are getting more excited every day to finally see the new roof in place. River Park will in future truly be a landmark on the East London skyline!
Studio Roof Project Updates
Praise the Lord, the budget needs a mere 8,79% to be fulfilled! This translates to just over R2,6 million. We gratefully praise God for this. The team of Faith Broadcasting Network is extremely privileged to have so many like-minded people at their side and is honoured to call them friends! We praise God for such faithful partners. There are daily calls and emails from people all over the world who are pledging support, both in prayer and finances, for the project. We know that God commands His blessing where there is unity, and so together and united we believe to see the entire renovation completed on time.

God always provides necessary resources when He gives a vision to accomplish much for His Kingdom. Our vision is plain and simple - Go out and train everyone you meet, far and near, in this way of life, marking them by baptism in the threefold name: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Then instruct them in the practice of all I have commanded you (Matthew 28:19-20 MSG). This is the exact mandate of Faith Broadcasting Network and its partners! Thank you again for heeding the voice of Christ and partnering with us to make this commission a reality.

Partnership Wall
We have started an exciting new project called the Partnership Wall. You all know us by face, yet there are very few of you that we know by face! We would like to get to know our partners better, and that is the reason we are embarking on creating the Partnership wall.

If you are a partner with us, please consider sending us a photograph of yourself; you can do so by email, Facebook, Twitter or even using the postal service! Send your best photo, so selfies won't really work!

Your photograph will receive a place of honour on the Partnership Wall and we will regularly feature it in our programmes. It is a point of connection for us so we would love you to be a part of this.

If you are not already a partner, it is as easy as 2 clicks... go to myfaithtv.com, click on "PARTNER CONNECT", fill in the form, and you will be redirected to attach your photograph. Then click on "SUBMIT".
