A Blessing for my Soul

Posted in Listener Stories

0105"I praise God who enabled me to give my testimony for the new life and new way I am experiencing," writes a listener from Eritrea.

"I was brought up in a God-fearing family and learned Christian manners and ethics in my early childhood, but in my teenage years I was totally lost. Like the Prodigal Son mentioned in the Bible, I was immersed in all immoral and evil things: getting drunk; committing adultery; smoking; fighting; mocking and disrespecting old people, and so on. The list could be much longer. But doing these things was not giving me any satisfaction.

God Answers the Prayers of Africa's Women

P129-D033wIn many cultures, women and girls live in hopelessness because they are told they are of little worth and are a burden to their families. They have never been told that the Creator of the Universe cares about them, wants to hear their prayers and loves to answer them.

Project Hannah, TWR's ministry for women, embraces prayer as a key element of its vision. Throughout the year approximately 40,000 intercessors are praying in 70 languages using the Project Hannah daily prayer calendar. During October and early November each year a special focus on 'Thanksgiving Prayer' lifts everyone's heart. The praises arriving throughout the 40-day prayer and fasting season give testimony to God's faithful care for women across Africa.

A Life in Africa, Changed Forever

Posted in Listener Stories

Exciting things are happening in Africa through the Gospel via the ministry of TWR! In this article we go to the beautiful land of Kenya to hear about David and find out how he encountered Jesus and experienced lasting change in his life. This is his story: 

David worked on a farm in Kenya and spent most of the little money he earned on alcohol. One night, while walking on the road in a drunken stupor, he was struck by a car and seriously injured. After the accident David woke up in hospital, fortunate to be alive but found that he was paralysed for life. After months of treatment, he returned home a very bitter man and cursed God for what had happened to him. He heaped verbal abuse on his wife and children until they could take it no longer. In desperation they asked a pastor to visit him, which he did several times - while enduring David's bitter verbal abuse.

But one day the pastor brought a radio with him and tuned it to a TWR programme in Swahili - David's own language. He turned up the volume and put it out of David's reach and left. David had no choice but to listen, and was challenged by the speaker who told of God's love for him, even though he may be walking through the valley of the shadow of death.

The next day David listened again - and then again and again. At last he surrendered to Christ and his life was completely changed! Today he plays his guitar in his church and participates as much as he can. With tears in his eyes, David thanks TWR for its programmes and the change Christ has made in his life.

Because somebody paid for this programme to be aired, David's life has been changed forever. In Romans 1:16, Paul asserts that the gospel is the "power of God for salvation to everyone who believes." It is through the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ that people in Africa are experiencing lasting life change. The best part is that you can take part in transforming people's lives in Africa. Your gift of R100, R200, R500 or whatever the Lord leads you to give, will make it possible for us to broadcast more programmes to East Africa to some 50 million Swahili speakers.

Matthew 16:18 - " ... I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it."
