TWR's Kenya Partner Ministering Despite Deadly Attacks in Garissa
The danger facing TWR’s partner and other believers in Kenya was further magnified last week when militants targeted Christians while killing nearly 150 people at a university in Garissa.
TWR Kenya, based in the capital of Nairobi, about 230 miles away, maintains an FM station in Garissa and has been reaching out through programming to the university and surrounding community. In fact, the chairman of the ministry’s board runs a school and a hospital in the city.

Antennae and Radio Propagation Expert Called Home
It was with great sadness that TWR heard of the passing of Dr Louis Muggleton this past weekend at the age of 92.
Dr Muggleton was a Christian engineer of considerable distinction in the field of electrical engineering. His research specialty since 1943 had been in radio wave propagation through the ionosphere as well as in antenna design, and he had earned his doctorate in this field in 1960. In the course of a distinguished career, he was credited with the production of formulas defining one of the basic parameters of the ionosphere for any required time and place.
NGU Visit - Swaziland
Half a dozen students are busy at North Greenville University (NGU) working on video projects filmed in Southern Africa earlier this month. These young adults are taking NGU’s Missionary Media Ministries class. The group (which included two faculty members) landed at the Johannesburg airport on 7 March and travelled by road over 1000 km to conduct six interviews with missionary families serving in South Africa and Swaziland.
Karyn Campbell teaches the course and described how NGU decided to send a team to TWR twice in a row.
Project Hannah Event - South Africa
Statistics have confirmed that women are the least valued, the least fed, the least educated and certainly, the least reached with the Gospel in a way that they can understand. The majority of women in this world have lost their God-given dignity as they have been shackled by cultural bias, poverty and ignorance.
These were some of the opening words of Marli Spieker, founder of Project Hannah Ministries (PH), at a special event at the Kempton Park Methodist Church on 21 February 2015.
TWR Country Focus: Eritrea
“I am a 35-year-old man partially paralyzed because of a severe stroke. My family and friends tried to do whatever they could to comfort me. Unfortunately none of them could reach my deep emotional turmoil and suffering.
“One day a friend of mine came with a different approach. Even before my stroke, he used to invite me frequently to join the spiritual fellowship and listen to the radio ministry of TWR.
