It seems like yesterday that TWR’s staff in Johannesburg welcomed Adam Rozanas who came from the USA to serve for three years as a presenter. Those years have passed all too quickly. He is about to return to his home country.
In this three-year period, Adam has certainly made his mark in the hearts of listeners and colleagues alike. About his experience, Adam says:
God works in mysterious ways. I never dreamed of being a missionary or going to Africa, but God was opening doors for me to join TWR and serve in South Africa, and I felt that the right response was faithful obedience.
I got to do what I love most – radio! I studied radio broadcasting and always knew that it is what I want to do with my life. I got chills every time I sat down behind the TWR microphone, because I knew this was another opportunity to bless someone’s day.
Ministry-related highlights include the weekday music program 100% Worship. I enjoyed getting to connect and interact with my audience over social media and WhatsApp. I’ll treasure my listeners and that program.
Another highlight at TWR was my one-hour CHH (Christian Hip-Hop) program the Urban Hour. I produced and presented the Urban Hour for a year and a half and I’m absolutely thrilled at the amount of response it has received from young people throughout Africa who are tuning in to be blessed by the music.
The thing I’ll likely miss most about TWR is the people. I’ve developed some invaluable friendships with the people here at TWR.
Concerning plans for the future - I’ve applied to several stations around the States already… God knows where He wants me next.
To people thinking about doing missions in Africa, I would say, “You won’t know until you try.” It’s an invaluable, incredible experience.
After three years in Africa, I find myself at a place in life that many young adults cannot even dream to be. The experiences I’ve had, the things I’ve witnessed, the ways my faith has been tested are not typical of any 25-year-old American. And I relish that. My prayer has been that I would be a different person the day I left South Africa than I was the day I arrived. God has answered that prayer and has used these years to prepare me for better things to come.
