LCSi Lehman Construction Services, Inc. recently donated $6,000 to cover the installation of solar panels for The Tide’s newly constructed recording studio in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe.
Headquartered in Chambersburg, The Tide is a global Gospel ministry program. It built the Zimbabwe studio to deliver its programming while also serving as a sustainable source of income for the community.
The donation makes it possible for the studio to be powered continuously in an area where electricity is sporadic. The recently dedicated studio offers audio and voice production services that were once only available in South Africa.
“We understand the need for power and know the importance of solar energy in the industry,“ said Alice Hyatt-Hawbaker, Secretary/Treasurer of LCSi.
She said LCSi sees the donation as a way to help The Tide fulfill its mission in another part of the world.
Although based in Chambersburg, LCSi is a tri-state community and commercial building contractor. Its corporate mission goes beyond construction, supporting many nonprofit organizations. Leaders are also active within their own churches.
The Tide ministry currently offers audio programming in 25 languages in Albania, Bhutan, India, Kosovo, Nepal, Nigeria, Thailand and Zimbabwe. That programming makes it possible for multiple people groups to hear the Gospel in their native languages.
