TWR Country Focus: Russia
Listeners of TWR programming write or call to ask questions about the Bible, tell their testimonies, express thanks for the ministry – even, sometimes, to dispute the gospel itself. But pretty often they just need someone to share a personal burden, and they turn to those radio speakers with whom they have developed a long-distance relationship.
A Russian listener got in touch with the staff of Project Hannah to say that the hosts of the programme Women of Hope provided just the solace and uplift she needed during a tough time.

Christians certainly can’t expect God to make all of life’s trials disappear, but they are assured that he stands beside them in hard times and that in all things he works for the good of those who are “called according to his purpose,” as the apostle Paul writes.
Things looked hopeless for this TWR listener in Vietnam, so he clung to his Savior.
"Thank God because his grace is great for me! He saved me from Satan’s darkness into the light of Christ.
In one of the best-loved verses of the Bible, Proverbs places a solemn responsibility on the shoulders of parents: to train up children in the way they should go so they won’t depart from that path in later years. It’s one of the main reasons we at TWR are thrilled to hear of families who listen to gospel programmes together, like this one in Las Tunas, Cuba.
I want to thank you for being on my radio every night – even though now I'm in college and I have no radio here and the Internet is quite limited.
Since 1997 when Marli Spieker founded Project Hannah, the Women of Hope programme and the Project Hannah ministry has been greatly blessed. Women of Hope is heard in 69 languages and over 50,000 faithful prayer warriors in 125 different countries pray through the Project Hannah Prayer Guide.
In January 2015, Marli expressed a desire to slow down a bit and spend more time with her husband and family. Marli said, “I believe that a ministry is only as strong as the people who carry it – not its leader alone.”

TWR Country Focus: Turkey
“I’m so glad that I found you on radio,” a 23-year-old woman in Turkey wrote to TWR, echoing a common observation included in letters to the ministry. Many listeners say that they discovered TWR programs when they stumbled over them while scanning the radio dial and that they kept tuning in to hear what these speakers of their native languages were talking about.
When she was younger, the woman in Turkey said, she knew nothing about Christianity and her family wouldn’t allow her to research the unfamiliar faith.
