Greetings from Sunny and Warm Durban!

Posted in OLD The Archive

Say the word, "Durban" to anyone in South Africa and you are bound to achieve one of two things - you will either kindle precious memories of a holiday spent at the sea, or you will stoke an optimistic hope of one day being able to go see the sea! Durban is a dream holiday destination that has all the components of an adventurous break - beaches, mountains, forests and game reserves. Whether you want to tan, surf, hike, or be amazed, Durban is the place to be.

However, Durban is also a city, and like any city in the world it has its problems. From the outward issues of poverty and crime to the inward realities of depression and meaninglessness, Durban is a place for gospel radio broadcasting.

Recently we received an email with the title, "Greetings from sunny and warm Durban!" This was from Richard1, a TWR-listener who wants to remind us that we're making a big difference out there - one person at a time. Here's what he had to say:

"Hi! I'm listening to your Countdown Magazine on live streaming on your website. I always get encouragement from listening to your programme, whether it is on my computer at the office or on short wave at home on 3200KHz. Thanks for your ministry. May the Lord bless your radio station and use you in a mighty way to spread the good news of hope to the world. God bless from Richard1."

You can also listen to TWR over the Internet at: {}, or on DStv on audio channel 155 (called TWR Radio 155). If you're going to listen at work, just be sure to check what your company's IT policy is, and make sure you can do it according to 1 Cor. 10:31, " ... whatever you do, do all to the glory of God."

The short wave broadcast can be heard throughout KZN at night in South Africa on 3200KHz, but the signal is strongest in the northern part of the province. You can listen to the following programmes, Monday to Friday with many more over the weekend:

  • Running to Win
  • Rendezvous
  • Thru The Bible
  • Insight for Living (with Chuck Swindoll)
  • Turning Point (with David Jeremiah)
