The calling of TWR (Trans World Radio) is “to reach the world for Christ by mass media so that lasting fruit is produced”. The station broadcasts TTB (Thru The Bible) in Afrikaans throughout South Africa on various radio stations. The Afrikaans TTB programme is titled “Die Bybel vir Vandag”. Now, TTB Afrikaans also reaches Namibia through the Namibian radio station, Channel 7.
The latter is a Christian radio station in Namibia that broadcasts in the English, Afrikaans, German and Oshiwambo languages. TTB Afrikaans was launched at Channel 7 in October 2018 with the aim of bringing the message of Hope, founded in Jesus Christ, to people who experience many challenges that fuel hopelessness.
“This programme enhances the spiritual content of our station and brings the message of Hope straight from the Bible. It is delivered in a simple but powerful manner,” says Stefan Saayman who is the Programme and General Manager of Channel 7.
Channel 7 has 33 transmitters all over Namibia, serving more than 80% of the population. “We also stream live on the internet and transmit on the DStv platform to the entire southern Africa,” says Stefan.
Stefan says their aim is to ensure that TTB Afrikaans becomes a signature programme on their station. “We want to broadcast excellent content, presentation and technical quality,” he concludes.
“I listen to Dr van Schalkwyk on Radio Kragbron at 4:30 in the morning. I get up at 4:00, make myself a cup of tea and then sit with my Bible at my radio. This is my daily, personal Bible Study. This programme is very special to me.”
“Your programme is such a blessing to me. In my lunchtime, I sit in my car and listen to your programme.”
“Your programme is my alarm clock in the morning and a blessing for the day.”
“Amid so many bad news, your good news on the programme is so healing. So good to hear the truth broadcast.”
“I always look forward to your programme which keeps me company while I am on the road. I always try to be over the mountain pass before your programme starts, so that I can have reception to listen to it. I need counselling as my marriage is suffering because I am away from home so often.” (Truck driver from Cape Province, South Africa)
