From practically useless to radically saved

Posted in Listener Stories

P2010 07C 024My name is Mark and I live in Burundi. I was a great sinner, you could say that I was a slave to alcohol.

With no positives teaching, input or guidance I went through life in a most undisciplined fashion. To put it bluntly, I was really a bad man lost to all of society and practically useless to my family.

I praise God for TWR's Thru The Bible programme (TTB) which around that time reached my ears and touched me deeply. Throught it I discovered that I was in death and came to the decision where I received Jesus Christ into my life to change me completely.

“I've been 20 years married to a man with whom I had no communication and who was an alcoholic. Many things happened that drove us away from each other. Between us there was a lack of respect, infidelity and a lack of love.

“But things got worse because we were not faithful to the Lord. I had been listening to you for three years on Radio Nueva Vida and then online on my phone.

One obvious advantage of Christian radio is that it can be understood and can therefore be informative among the hundreds of millions of people in the world who can’t read.

Combine that fact with its inexpensive availability to so many listeners even in remote, poorer areas, broadcasts like those by TWR become a powerful platform for taking the gospel to people who can’t read the Bible for themselves.

The brief and heartwarming statement below came from one of these listeners and was recorded and passed along to us by our partner in Angola.

A coordinator with Project Hannah, TWR’s global women’s ministry, passed along the moving story of Ayaan, who was born to Somali Christian parents living in Ethiopia but adopted by another Somali family. The adoptive parents raised her in a different faith.

Ayaan (not her real name) married a man in Ethiopia and emigrated to the United States. The couple had two children but eventually divorced because her in-laws never accepted her. She became depressed and thought several times about killing herself after finding no solace in the religion she had been brought up to follow.

When you discover something really special, you often feel like you can’t get enough of it. 

That’s what happened with one of our Egyptian listeners, who discovered the greatest thing of all – the news that God sent his Son to redeem each one of us – while listening to TWR broadcasts. 

The listener sent TWR’s response team a brief message in praise of the program Leading the Way, featuring the teaching of Dr. Michael Youssef, who also happens to be a native of Egypt.
