Bali, an island rich in culture, is a place where its people follow their religious ceremonies with high enthusiasm. Many believe in occult teachings, which use rituals to release the spirit from the body into the sky to meet the gods.
Yati, a 36-year-old woman, was deeply steeped in the occult. She would have many mystical rituals performed on her. One curse remained, however: Every baby she gave birth to died. Everyone in her village believed that it was not a physical condition but an attack by an evil spirit.

A global radio audience requires programming that meets a wide range of spiritual needs – from the person who’s never heard of Jesus to the serious skeptic to the new believer and the church leader.
TWR has never subscribed to the mile-wide-but-inch-deep model of Christian broadcasting. We speak hope to people in many walks of life, and we make a special effort to provide substantive teaching about the whole Word of God. This response from a listener in Colombia indicates we’re on the right track.

It never fails to amaze and warm the hearts of TWR staff members to hear from listeners who have shared much of their lives with our radio ministry. On a personal basis, many of these brothers and sisters know the six decades of TWR history better than we do!
This message comes from one of those longtime listeners in Croatia – a woman who remembers tuning in to the broadcasts of Josip Horak during the Cold War. Those programmes of Horak, a professor, economist and pastor in Yugoslavia, were broadcast from the TWR station in Monaco.

You probably have read some of the many stories we receive from listeners whose lives are changed when they stumble across a gospel broadcast while tuning their radios. About as often, however, we hear from people who discover Jesus Christ after being introduced to TWR programming by an acquaintance.
That’s the case with this 29-year-old woman in Turkey.

Thomas knew there was something really significant about those gospel programmes on the radio, and he wasn’t going to quit searching until he found them again.
Thomas (not his real name) had always enjoyed listening to Bible broadcasts as a boy in Kenya, but he lost touch with his radio mentor as he grew up and went off to college. Much later, he wrote TWR Kenya to tell of the lengthy quest that eventually achieved success.
