Bringing Vision to a Community

“And then I found out it was going to cost $5000 and I said, ‘Ah, forget it!’”

This was Hazel’s first response to having Vision Radio installed at Lake Nash in the Northern Territory, just across the Queensland border.

Robbo and Becci wanted Hazel to tell them how she helped Vision Radio get to air at Lake Nash.

“We’re excited to have our 700th station on, and I believe you were involved in that,” said Becci.

Hazel lived at Lake Nash and was a missionary at Camooweal in northwest Queensland for 15-years before moving to Mt Isa where she now runs a bookshop.

“I lived at Lake Nash for 20-years and I’d heard other Aboriginal communities were getting it (Vision Radio), but I didn’t understand how they got it,” Hazel said.

“And then I found out it was going to cost $5000 and I said, ‘Ah, forget it!’”

No Vision Radio. But God intervened and changed all that.

“So the Lord overruled in that area,” Hazel informed. “Fantastic!”

Then came the moment of truth.

“Had you heard Vision before when you were living at Lake Nash?” queried Robbo.

“Never heard it…..And I still haven’t!” (LOL)

There you have it. Hazel’s confession. She has never heard Vision Radio.

 “There’s Vision here in Mt Isa but I never get time to listen to it.”

“I’m in and out, in and out, in and out, then I’m gone for a week, and then I’m home…and then I’m gone for another two weeks, then I’m home, and in and out,” Hazel admitted, describing her busy schedule in a remote region of Australia, running a bookshop, doing Bible studies, and the driver behind Vision’s 700th station at Lake Nash…the station Hazel is yet to listen to.
