The Disassembly of TX 4

In the hit TV show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, the cast seems to delight in the gutting and removal of an old home that is going to be made over. As the show progresses, we see a new and better home being built. During the second week in August, the TWR crew had a similiar experience as they gutted and removed Transmitter Four in preparation for newer and better transmitters within the building.

You can imagine the fun they had as they tore into the TX, taking it apart and tearing it to pieces! Over a couple of days the TX was stripped of its' aluminum parts, while later in the week with the help of two volunteers Rick Guerrero and Rich Dahilig, the remaining portions of the TX were removed; steel parts gutted for recycling, and salvageable electronic parts sent to storage for later use.

Yet as the TX was being disassembled, I couldn't help but think how blessed the people who were present at its' dedication 28 years ago would have been. They would have prayed for long-life, dependability, and that it would serve its' purpose . . . to reach Asia for Christ so that lasting fruit is produced. Through the grace of God, TX 4 has done just that, and we retire it with joyful hearts.

"the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes." Psalm 118:23
