Have you found language barriers can make people seem unfriendly and distant? “Making friends beyond acquaintances was hard for me,”says South Africa born Ivan Bam, looking back at his time in Germany in the mid 1980s. “In those days there was no social media to make connections back home or with friends when it seemed like life there had moved on without me.” Bam felt his biggest barrier to integration was the German language and learning it was a process. “It was really difficult at first. I was trying to fix my loneliness by looking back to my home country. The feeling is often magnified by struggles to learn a language, form deep connections, and generally integrate into a culture. The loneliness that expats experience comes generally with a sense of alienation.”
My hubby suffered a heart attack 4yrs ago & went through a massive depression after. Through TWR programmes, God started ministering to him and he is now free from depression. We have since listened to the radio station daily for devotions and discussions and this has helped us to grow spiritually. Thank you for doing God’s work and changing many lives.
TWR listener from South Africa
For close to three decades, Trans World Radio Kenya has been taking listeners for a walk through the bible through a radio series called 'Neno Litaendelea' (The Word will Continue). The programme is a partnership adoption of Dr. John Vernon McGee’s Through The Bible series (TTB) that has been translated in more than 100 languages and dialects, according to their website, ttb.org.
The programme has transformed and continues to impact many lives. Those whose lives have been changed through the sermons continue to enjoy the benefits of knowing the Lord, as we recently discovered when we received a letter with this testimony from listener who has been listening to the series for decades.
I am a TWR Kenya listener and would like to thank the producers of the Neno Litaendelea programmes for the teachings and lessons delivered through the sermons.
TWR Country Focus: Uganda
A young man in Uganda recently wrote to us, sharing (in part):
“I reached a point of burning any script that had the word of God. I hated myself and my life, and with time, lost meaning of existence. I remember on several occasions I attempted suicide because the world was meaningless to me.
I live in Swaziland and I am a keen listerner to your programme 'Hope for Today'.
I would like you to send me reading material, on how I can better my life after accepting Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour. Since I started listening to Thru the Bible, I have also been wondering if you do give CD's programmes.
The programmes have been an inspiration and greatly affected my spiritual journey and my life in Christ... Thank you for changing my life.
May God bless you in the good works that you do, spreading the Gospel of Jesus so that people like me would believe and repent to the Lord."
"Declare his Glory among the Nations, His marvelous among all people. For great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; he is to be feared above all gods.." Psalm 96:3-4 (NIV)
