A woman named Sara Calderon Lott shares the following story about the long-standing importance of TWR programs:
My father, Julio, started listening to TWR from Bonaire in the 1960s, after the revolution in the Dominican Republic.
You are blessed in the name of our Father, Jesus, Christ, our Savior. My heart is glad every time I listen to your messages. I traveled across the United States from 1984 to 2005, and I have listened to you at different times depending on the state I was in.
I live in Norwalk, California, and I listen to you on 1390, Radio Nueva Vida. I have not been working for a year because of an accident on the job site, but God is good.
For a blind man who drew hope from TWR broadcasts while recovering from a tragic traffic accident, a visit to the ministry’s office in Kenya was a dream come true. It was a moving experience for the staff who received him, as well.
A staff member was the first one to notice the arrival of special visitor Francis Mwai at the TWR Kenya facility. Two people entered the gate – one man in his mid-20s and the other much older and wearing dark sunglasses and carrying a walking stick.
We encounter Jirmo Bokayo, a 58-year-old woman from the Dub Goba area of Marsabit County in Kenya, on a rainy afternoon. The Marsabit team of Sifa FM, a network of radio frequencies used by TWR Kenya, is visiting Dub Goba to distribute food. At first, Jirmo is shy and a bit reserved, but later she opens up to us and shares about events of years ago that still shape her life today.
Many young leaders in Africa need suitable tools to learn biblical principles of leadership. TWR-Africa offers the radio programme “Tools for Wise Leadership”.
From 2015 onwards leaders can also listen to this leadership programme on the TWR360 mobile phone app and can interact on the Tools for Wise Leadership Facebook page about the leadership topics.
