    For over 30 years, TWR Burundi has shared a building and office space with a partner organization called Scripture Union. In 2019, God began paving the way for TWR Burundi to have its own property that will significantly enhance the ministry's ability to grow.

    By God’s grace, both TWR and Scripture Union have outgrown their shared office...

  • Broadcasting Hope to West Africa

    Africa, Evangelism

    TWR Canada takes seriously the call to reach the world with the good news of Christ. In West Africa, many tribes and clans practice their own traditional religions. While many have converted to Islam or Christianity, traditional religious beliefs remain influential, and many people have yet to hear of the hope and salvation that Jesus offers.

    TWR Kenya broadcasts programming in many different Kenyan dialects to diverse groups of people, including the unreached and marginalized living in remote areas of the country.

  • An Oasis of Hope

    March 19, 2019 By the TWR Canada Team
    Filed Under:
    Millions of people in West Africa are living without hope. Radical religious movements, satanic worship, poverty, illness and violence destroy lives and keep people in bondage. Many people have never heard of salvation in the Lord Jesus Christ. This is a call to us Christians – we need to reach these people with the hope and peace found...
