John Summerville with Trans World Radio says they have been like kids at Christmastime, excited about the ribbon-cutting ceremony on the Caribbean island of Bonaire.

"God is doing great things through TWR and through the many different partners ... who have helped to come alongside us and put on this full 450,000-watt Nautel transmitter that will be able to broadcast all the way from the southern U.S. clear down to central Brazil," he shares.

"It's a massive signal – in fact, it will be the largest radio station in the entire Western Hemisphere."

Summerville tells OneNewsNow that the expanded signal will now reach all of Cuba, including Havana, the capital of the communist country.

"Havana, of course, [is home to] 2.1 million people with no Christian radio," he describes. "And so this will give them the ability to be able to cruise down those streets in those 1950s cars and turn on their radio and hear the good news of Jesus."

He says there's a hunger for the gospel in Cuba – and TWR is excited to see what God will be doing there.
