A TWR team from the United States recently travelled to Mozambique to upgrade the Radio Trans Mundial (RTM) studios at the TWR Maputo National partner office. The team put their various skills to good use and gained valuable insights into the living and working conditions in South Africa, Swaziland and Mozambique.
The Lord used Daryl and Carol van Dyken of TWR’s office in America to bring together a dynamic team that stepped out with initiative and zeal to assist local churches and ministries in Mozambique. The van Dykens previously served as missionaries at TWR Africa for eight years and it was their idea to bring together a work team.

Ministry is often associated with preaching and teaching. How then, would you ask, can a tractor become a ministry tool? Read on, and you will be surprised.
The TWR transmitter in Benin is located in one of the poorest countries in Africa. Geographically, Benin sits on the southern edge of the Sahara desert and food shortages are common. The people there practice subsistence farming, and a hard year has long-reaching consequences. TWR owns a large parcel of land in Benin, and only a small portion of it is used for the transmitter. The staff in Benin can't ignore the needs of the people around them, and have created some innovative means to help.
United in their love for Africa
Staff Story: The Kimbers
TWR is thrilled to have a seasoned missionary couple, Graham and Jean Kimber, and their two young daughters, Jessica (6) and Bernice (4) join the TWR team in Swaziland.
"We were very encouraged at the way the Lord prepared the way for us to work with TWR," says Graham.
Missions work has been a theme in their lives since their love story began. They first met in the early 1990s when they were both working as missionaries in the Seychelles, and they later married in 2006.
Providing Ministry Opportunities for Students
It's the Summer Holidays! This is something that University students always look forward to. However, for some students, they want to use this 'free time' to exercise their skills in the field of their relevant studies, but not just anywhere. They want to use what they have learnt in the Missions Field to serve God. TWR provides an internship program that gives students, who are at least two years into University, an opportunity to work according to their field of studies in various regions around the world. While out in the field, they'll get to work on various projects with a Mentor who will also be their Father/Mother figure while away from home.
