Today, we have the opportunity to hear from Zachary, TWR Canada’s newest missionary intern who is currently serving in Eswatini. Zachary is from Winnipeg, Manitoba and is pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics at the University of Winnipeg. He has a love for patterns and has been fascinated by math since he was young.
Why did Zachary decide to go on mission to Africa? One of the first verses God led Zachary to as a child was Habakkuk 1:5 which says, “Look among the nations, and see; wonder and be astounded. For I am doing a work in your days that you would not believe if told." (ESV) Zachary memorized the verse when he was young and continues to return to it and learn from it.

As her children grew increasingly rebellious and resentful, Nofoto* knew the fabric of her family was being ripped apart. But this South African mother realized that the problem rested with her and not her kids. And that the solution required dramatic changes on her part! But what and how?
TWR hastened to join the battle against the deadly Ebola outbreak by using the ministry’s communication network to spread health information across West Africa.
The 10th outbreak of the Ebola virus in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) has been ongoing since August 2018. This is the largest-ever outbreak reported in the country and the world's second largest in history! According to the Ministry of Health, Democratic Republic of the Congo, it has been declared a “Public Health Emergency of International Concern.”
Lesotho is a rare country in its own right. It is not only one of the few mono-ethnic countries in Africa but also one of the few independent nation-state enclaves in the world. Furthermore, it claims the highest lowest point of any country on earth existing entirely above 1,000m (3,281ft), holding the nickname “The Kingdom in the Sky”. The name Lesotho roughly translates to "the land of the people who speak Sesotho”. This tiny kingdom, spanning just over 30,000 square kilometres, is home to around 2 million people, of which most are from the Basotho people group.
TWR’s 2TWR’s 200,000-Watt Transmitter Brings Gospel to Nigeria and Surrounding Areas
CARY, N.C. (Jan. 30, 2020) – Think of this Saturday’s official launch of TWR’s Oasis broadcasts as an answer to the prayers of a Yoruba-speaking man who lives in turbulent northern Nigeria.
A couple of years ago, the man emailed TWR (also known as Trans World Radio) after listening to the world-renown Thru the Bible programme: “I really appreciate your programme, sir. The Lord will strengthen the ministry. Continue to pray for us in the north. We are facing terrible persecution here.”
TWR supporters and response ministries have been praying for people like this listener. And now expanded gospel programming that brings messages of encouragement, discipleship, reconciliation and hope will be able to reach all of this country known as the “giant of Africa.”
