Africa (MNN) — Last week, Trans World Radio held its first ever live radio fundraiser with its staff in Africa. The inaugural event, SHINE Africa, combined on-air prayer, conversations, testimonies and fundraising to reach two goals.
The first was to bring in money for ongoing operating costs in South Africa. And the second goal was to raise funds for TWR’s partner in Malawi to expand northward. Malawi has some rough neighbors to its north, places where Christians are being killed.
Invitation from TWR CEO and President, Lauren Libby:
"Hi there. I will be in South Africa June 4th to 6th and invite you to join me on air for SHINE Africa.
Jesus said in Matthew 5:16 that we are to let our light SHINE before others so that God can be glorified. We will have a great time on air sharing listener testimonies and prayer requests and inviting you to participate generously in the ministry opportunities that TWR Africa is involved in.
Be excited; be in prayer, as we prepare our hearts for TWR Africa's SHINE Africa, June 4th to 6th - ONLY on TWR Africa."
Tune in to TWR Africa for this exciting live broadcast series which will take place Monday June 4th to and including Wednesday 6th with hosts Unathi, Anthony, Branko, Simon, Andy and Lauren.
The broadcasts will be on Short Wave from 07:00 to 09:00 and simultaneously on Satellite from 07:00 to 09:00, inviting listeners to become part of the ministry financially and to celebrate what God is doing through the listeners and ministry of TWR Africa.
In the same way,
LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE BEFORE OTHERS
that they may see your good deeds
and glorify your father in heaven.
The isiZulu Department of TWR Africa were recently awarded the prestigious FAITH BROADCASTING NETWORK: FAITH THAT COUNTS AWARD at a Gala Event at the annual Association of Christian Media of Southern Africa Conference held near Johannesburg.
The award is intended for an organization that is running a very successful project that reaches out to the community in a practical and meaningful way, other than via their principle media efforts.
For close to three decades, Trans World Radio Kenya has been taking listeners for a walk through the bible through a radio series called 'Neno Litaendelea' (The Word will Continue). The programme is a partnership adoption of Dr. John Vernon McGee’s Through The Bible series (TTB) that has been translated in more than 100 languages and dialects, according to their website, ttb.org.
The programme has transformed and continues to impact many lives. Those whose lives have been changed through the sermons continue to enjoy the benefits of knowing the Lord, as we recently discovered when we received a letter with this testimony from listener who has been listening to the series for decades.
I am a TWR Kenya listener and would like to thank the producers of the Neno Litaendelea programmes for the teachings and lessons delivered through the sermons.
1 February 2008, 4 am – the first broadcast of the Gospel of Jesus beamed from the newly built TWR Transmitter Station in West Africa! After many years of prayer, negotiation, opposition, sweat and tears, the dream of the late Rev. Stephen Boakye-Yiadom, TWR International Director of Africa at the time, to broadcast across the West African region, finally became a reality.
On 1 February 2018, TWR West Africa Transmitter Station (WATS) celebrates ten years of reaching across barriers of darkness, fear and hopelessness in the West African region by spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ, bringing hope and providing spiritual guidance to the people in this region.To date, through its relevant, culturally sensitive programs, the transmitter continues to bring hope to the seeker, encouragement to the new believer, and training for the seasoned Christian.
