TWR Malawi witnessed an inspiring encounter in which one listener was blessed by two other listeners. This is a beautiful story where faith and love meet, lives and hearts are touched, and God is glorified.
Stella Kalinde was born with full vision 50 years ago, but in April 2012 she suddenly became blind from an unknown illness. Stella, better known as Nachanza, told us that she was a regular TWR listener before becoming blind. “I have been a keen listener of TWR all along. I became an even more committed listener when you introduced [the radio program] Friday Night Live in January last year.”
Peer pressure can be a beautiful thing-that is, when your peers are pressuring you in the right direction! Yet in the case of one high school student in Eritrea, her friends were determined to see her waste her life. Their voices were loud and persuasive, and they were pushing her deeper and deeper into immorality. As she accelerated downhill, she recalls, “No one was around to help me.”
I have listened to TWR programs since 1978, when your programs were aired only on shortwave (my favorite). My consistency in listening is limited by my profession as a sailor.
In short, I am a believer, and I like programs with spiritual content, but I am still not quite satisfied with my knowledge and understanding.
Much of TWR’s programming is evangelistic, aimed at reaching out to nonbelievers to introduce them to the Gospel message and bring them into Christ’s fold. But the work doesn’t stop there. Another important aspect of the ministry involves discipling new and longtime believers and then helping to train potential leaders of growing Christian communities.
I would like to sincerely thank you for such useful programs. I am listening with great joy. And I will admit all of this is because of my 89-year-old grandmother. Every evening she listens to all kinds of programs. At that time I am usually already in bed in the next room, but I can hear this very well.
