TWR is pleased to announce the addition of new significant bible teaching programmes as well as a split of our programming from our existing singular West Africa Medium Wave transmitter to include a second frequency focussing mainly on the diversely populous nation of Nigeria. These programmes are tailored specifically to provide authentic Christian content in the heart languages of many people groups in West Africa, as well as in English and French.

The new schedules will take effect on MW 1566 and MW 1476 (the new Oasis transmitter) in West Africa from 1 August 2020!

In addition to long-time favourites, a diverse range of regional and international programmes will make up the schedule. We are thankful for the introduction of new programmes, including Thru the Bible (TTB), in two new languages, Igbo (Nigeria) and Baoule (Côte d’Ivoire). TTB is a systematic teaching of the basic principles of God’s word, verse by verse, originally produced in English by Dr J Vernon McGee.

Other new programming includes a children’s drama, Project Samuel in the Bambara language on 1566 kHz, and In Touch in the Hausa language.

We praise God for the prayer and support of many partners for the Oasis Project. Installed in 2018 and 2019, this 200,000-watt AM transmitter started airing on 1 February 2020, exactly 10 years after the first West Africa Transmitter went on air. The first transmitter airs on MW 1566 kHz, and the new transmitter on MW 1476 kHz.

Like an oasis in the desert, these two transmitters are a refuge of life-giving water in the spiritually dry region of West Africa and provides TWR Africa the unprecedented opportunity to reach millions of people with life-changing messages of peace and hope from the Word of God.
