TWR Philippines eloquently shares about the reciprocal blessings experienced by many of our national partners around the world.

It is not uncommon for us to receive messages from listeners thanking us for the programme and telling us how blessed they were by what they heard. Upon getting to know them better, it always turns out that we are the ones more blessed to have heard from them.
