VOLUNTEER WORKERS IN TARTU

During the summer of 2000 several teams of volunteers from North America constructed new AM broadcast facilities near Tartu that are being used for Russian programming to surrounding countries. The workers came from all across the United States and Canada to construct a 2700 square foot transmitter building, a 225 square foot antenna tuning unit building, and a tall antenna tower.

Team members also had opportunities to minister in local churches and with small groups.
