A work group of 11 Americans did renovation and construction work last week in Bothas Hill, KZN South Africa. This is the first group of volunteers who have come to assist our South Africa national partner since TWR SA moved into their present location two years ago.
Eight in the group came from Forks of the Brandywine Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Glenmoore, Pennsylvania. Team leader Carol VanDyken is a TWR missionary who served with her husband Daryl in the TWR Africa Office for several years before the family moved to Pennsylvania in 2008.
TWR Country Focus: Côte d’Ivoire
The life of a believer in this Western African nation was turned upside down when he was diagnosed with HIV.
“It was hard to accept the verdict, but the reality is that, after the mourning of the news, I had to make a decision: accept my new situation and continue to live or deny it and die,” he wrote to TWR.
God has taught him that living with HIV is not the end of life.
TWR Country Focus: Czech Republic
A Czech believer has found immense comfort in hearing TWR’s broadcasts.
She wrote a letter to a local station saying, “Yesterday, when I listened to your program, I could feel the Lord talking to me. I went through different difficulties, and sometimes there is doubt: What if the Lord just drops me?”
TWR Country Focus: North Africa
Radio is crucial in reaching North Africans with the gospel. TWR began broadcasting into North Africa in 1965, and today a powerful medium-wave transmitter carries God’s Word into the region.
A Kabyle Berber woman wrote TWR to tell her enthusiastic story of discovering the gospel by way of the airwaves. “Hello, dear servants of God, I am your sister in Christ,” she wrote, adding, “Thank God I found the true path to follow to return to my creator for eternity.”
