For many listeners in full time ministry, their "Bible School" is TWR programming. A Zambian "student" recently wrote to tell us his story:
"When I started listening to your radio station I had a real encounter with Jesus and on the 22nd of November 2000, while dying in hospital after being sick for one year, I met the Lord Jesus. During that time I was in the ICU of the hospital, and doctors told me that they were discharging me to go and die in peace at home.
"Jesus came and changed all that, and today I am alive. Jesus gave me a vision of what He wanted me to do for Him from Acts 9 (Saul's Conversion). I have now been in ministry for ten years ... Jesus said in Hebrews 13:5 - "I will never leave you nor forsake you." I have experienced this in sickness, in death, and in trouble. Thank you, TWR, for opening doors for me to various ministries and teachers over the years. I have never been to college or any Bible school - your radio is my Bible school. Whether we ever meet or not, that is not important, but my prayer is that God richly blesses you in all you do. It is as if you are my family - when I was sick my wives ran away and abandoned me. I overcame because you were my encourager in the faith."
Avid listeners of TWR receive an exposition of the entire Bible every five years as a basic "course" (Thru the Bible - TTB). A listener from Angola had this to say about TTB, "I was blind but now I see. This is the only way I can explain what TTB is doing in my life. I am so blessed by this program that my life changed radically." That's just TTB! There are a myriad of other programmes which equip believers to equip others! Proverbs 15:22 says, "Without counsel plans fail, but with many advisors they succeed." TWR is excited to be an advisor, offering counsel to listeners like this!
Please pray for these listeners and others like them.
