    Cuba, Discipleship, Evangelism

    Since 2009, TWR Canada has been working with RTM Cuba to further spread the good news of Jesus Christ across their country. The internet in Cuba is hard to access and is expensive and slow. Therefore, an outside media source such as TWR is effective in reaching the country with the gospel.

    Prayer has always been at the forefront of TWR Canada. Prayer reminds us of our dependency on God and allows us to join in his kingdom work. In Ephesians 6:18, believers are directed to "pray at all times in the Spirit."

    “Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen.” (Luke 24:5-6 ESV)

    He is not here, but has risen. What emotions does that one little phrase conjure up? Think about it – he has risen. If you are a follower of Jesus, perhaps joy, excitement, awe?

    As we approach Easter and remember the death and resurrection of Christ, let us consider the biblical practice of lament.

    Evangelism, Discipleship Essentials
    Physical Distancing. Self-isolation. Quarantine.

    These words have become very familiar to us over the last few weeks and months. This can feel lonely and overwhelming. The author of Hebrews directs us to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another,...
