Mollie Steenson: This week we have John and Rosemary Malkiewycz from 3ABN Australia. John and Rosemary, we are so glad to have you with us again.
John: Thank you Mollie, we are always glad to be here.
Mollie: You know for the last couple of years we have been receiving reports on the construction of the 3ABN Australian Production Centre. Recently we had the official opening. Tell us what’s left to be done.
John: Well Mollie, the Studio A is completed with an interview set and a green screen, but we still have to finish our Studio B. Lighting still needs to be completed, sets need to be built, and we need to purchase furniture and props for the sets. We also need to build a stage and purchase seating for a live audience.
Mollie: What type of productions are you going to do in Studio B?
Rosemary: Well, as Studio B is our largest studio, we plan to use it for making music, cooking, children’s programs, as well as live events. These will help supplement 3ABN’s English-speaking programs.
Mollie: Do you have programs already in production?
John: Currently, we began taping a new series called, Tangible Evidence. We also have people working on a new children’s series and another one on science and nature, and even an evangelistic series.
Mollie: What other facilities are you going to have in your production facility?
Rosemary: Well, currently we have some 3ABN resources available from our building, including a selection of books, CD’s, and DVD’s. We invite viewers to contact us to find out what we have in our store.
Mollie: This whole facility sounds like an incredible tool that God has prepared for His glory. John are there any other needs that you would like to tell our viewers and listeners about?
John: Yes, Mollie. Just like 3ABN in the United States, we need volunteer staff to help us and like you we have an application process for volunteers. We need to match people with right positions as well as with our organization. Of course, we have continuing expenses too. We need to pay our monthly satellite bill and our running cost, for the building never stops.
Mollie: Thank you John and Rosemary. We believe that the Holy Spirit will impress people, just like you, to support in this most important work financially and with your time. We are so happy to have the new production center up and running.
