Close to 2,000 people attended the ceremony. VOC is the National Partner of Trans World Radio (TWR)  in Swaziland.

The celebration made headlines in The Sunday Times of Swaziland as a Swazi-born billionaire pledged a E10,000,000 (approximately $720,000) donation for further development. The businessman (who now lives in Botswana) hearing the needs from the VOC National Director in August requested a budget. He presented this E10 million budget to companies in which he is a shareholder and explained the importance of VOC’s ministry in Swaziland.

Radio Church Kits for China

Posted in News

China church kit-white bgEach week, millions of believers in China gather secretly in house churches and other ways to listen to Bible teaching radio broadcasts from TWR’s powerful short wave transmitter from the tiny island of Guam in the Pacific Ocean.

To supplement our programmes and make it possible for more to listen in rural areas, Trans World Radio (TWR) distributes unique Radio Church Kits to train and disciple believers in house church networks. Each kit includes a quality short wave radio, a Chinese study Bible, study books and programme schedules. You can provide all of these for a gift of R850 to support the distribution of Radio Church Kits. This amount also includes the cost of delivery, often at great personal risk to the carrier. You may help believers in China to not only hear the Gospel but study the Word of God and mature in their walk with Christ by donating one or more Radio Church Kits.
