Mozambique: Disciples Making Disciples

Posted in News

By Rafael Oliveira

Mozambique1Amidst the ongoing coronavirus pandemic in a politically restless country, TWR Mozambique (RTM Moçambique) ceaselessly endeavours to walk alongside locals in many areas of life, while broadcasting the Good News throughout the nation.
Situated in Southeastern Africa, Mozambique’s recent war torn history, natural disasters, and political instability have all contributed to various endemics, mass poverty, poor infrastructure, and a higher infant mortality rate. The colonial struggle for independence, followed by a civil war only ending in 1992, cost long-term damage to the country’s health capital and economic strength.

Due to lockdowns since March 2020, the country experienced a contraction in GDP. Up to one million Mozambicans fell below the poverty line in 2020 alone, as service activities as well as the hospitality and tourism industries have plummeted financially.

It is with great sadness that TWR (Trans World Radio) received the news of the passing of Reverend Stephen Bapiro, Programme Director of TWR Zimbabwe.

The late Rev Stephen Bapiro was born on 31 December 1951 near the Rusambo Mission Station, which was run by The Evangelical Alliance Mission (TEAM) proceeded to the Evangelical Bible College (Chinhoyi) where he graduated in Theological Education in 1969.

 He first worked with the children’s ministry with TEAM before being called to TEAM’s radio ministry (Word of Life Radio).

In 1990 the ministry changed hands and became Trans World Radio (TWR). Together with the late Rev Stephen Boakye-Yiadom, TWR Africa Regional Director at the time, they were instrumental in the purchase and relocation to TWR Zimbabwe’s current premises in February 2003.

On June 28, 2021, Worship ConneXion aired for the first time on TWR Africa and the New Life Africa Satellite Network (NLASN), with the aim of connecting listeners to each other and to God throughout the continent.

Hosts Unathi Sithole and Thulani Mdletshe emphasised the theme of connection during this time where circumstances have deprived many people of community with others. By asking listeners how they want the show to look like and what they would like to be communicated, Sithole and Mdletshe showed that they want to walk alongside, encourage, and support them as best they can. 

Worship ConneXion!

“When the global COVID-19 pandemic started in March 2020 I got more messages from Italy!” Lorraine Stavropoulos, TWR’s DX-secretary told us. “People who were locked down with nothing to do seemed to begin listening to foreign radio stations.”

DXing, for those unfamiliar with the term, means listening to far-away — usually foreign — radio stations. "D" is said to mean distance and "X" refers to the unknown.
