    Working Within Culture to Grow God's Family

    January 15, 2019 By the TWR Canada Team
    Suppose you live next door to an elderly woman who doesn’t leave her house much. One day you talk to her about God, and she tells you she wants to know more. How do you respond? You might give her a large-print Bible or visit with her at her house; you probably wouldn’t invite her to your Bible study at a church across town, nor...

    A Look Back at the Past Year

    January 8, 2019 A letter by TWR Canada President

    2018 has been a year like no other! God has opened doors for ministry and has provided beyond our expectation financially. I am always amazed at how God is one step ahead of us. 

    What did God being one step ahead of us look like in 2018?  Let me try to give you a bird’s eye view.

    In June of this year our board gave approval for...

    Looking Back at 2018 - and Last Chance to Give

    December 28, 2018 By the TWR Canada Team
    All around the world, God is working. It is amazing that even in the spiritually darkest areas of the world, he is drawing people to himself. In West Africa, the birthplace of voodoo, a witch doctor is listening to TWR on the radio. In Iran, a young woman who has been told she has no value is speaking with a friend about the hope of Christ after...

    Merry Christmas!

    December 18, 2018 By the TWR Canada Team
    What a wonderful time of the year! Indeed, God has blessed us, not only with his provisions, but more importantly, with the gift of himself. On Christmas, we celebrate that gift. God sent his son, a precious baby we call “Immanuel.” God is with us! And even before Jesus entered our world, God was at work, always loving us, frequently...
  • The Evangelistic Voice of Haiti

    The Evangelistic Voice of Haiti

    December 11, 2018 By the TWR Canada Team
    Haiti. A country known for its poverty, its struggle with voodoo and its earthquakes.

    Haiti is part of the tiny island known as Hispaniola, which it shares with the more developed Dominican Republic. Most Christians in North America would recognize it as a country in need of the gospel and to say it faces significant challenges would be an...
  • Mrs. G's Love for Kenya

    Mrs. G's Love for Kenya

    December 4, 2018 By the TWR Canada Team
    Earlier this year, we talked to Dr. Griffiths from Bible Stories Alive . He shared with us that his late wife, Mrs. G – the original English storyteller of Bible Stories Alive – would be thrilled to know that her stories are being heard in Kenya.

    When Mrs. G was 16 (though she wasn’t yet Mrs. G!), she attended a...
  • When God's Blessings Turn Hard Work Into Joy

    When God's Blessings Turn Hard Work Into Joy

    November 27, 2018 By the TWR Canada Team
    Have you heard the phrase, “We are blessed to be a blessing?” This refers to God giving us gifts that we can use to bless and serve other people. The idea originates from Genesis, when God told Abraham to leave his country and go to a different land: “And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your...
  • "God Works!" - Reaching the Roma People in Macedonia

    November 20, 2018 By the TWR Canada Team
    The Roma people are a minority group in Macedonia and are primarily Muslim. Today, though most Roma people live in the capital city, Skopje, around 15,000 live in Prilep, where twenty-five years ago, there were none. In 2009, the Roma people in Prilep tuned in to their first FM Christian radio program: The Voice of Truth . Today, Pastor Edijan...

    Listening to Our Listeners

    November 13, 2018 By the TWR Canada Team

    “Testing, testing. Can anyone hear me?” 

    In radio ministry, it would be so easy to simply broadcast our programs, sending out the gospel message hoping that plenty of people are listening. And then, that’s it. Let God do the rest. But we can do more!

    What makes ministry effective? Can we just hope that someone is...

  • Uniting Hearts for His Glory

    Uniting Hearts for His Glory

    November 6, 2018 By the TWR Canada Team
    “I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears. 
    Those who look to him are radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed.”  

    Psalm 34:4-5 (ESV)

    TWR Women of Hope wants women all over the world to be able to say these words and to know the truth they proclaim. Sadly, many women live in fear...
