  • 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.

    “Becoming a missionary was not something I grew up dreaming of doing. I didn’t actively avoid it, but it just wasn’t anywhere on my radar.” Many of us can relate to this thought which was expressed by Nathan Dunlop as we sat down with him and his wife Megan and heard their story.

    For Nathan, his story began when he was...

    Desperate for the Word of God

    An update on our Bible distribution project and partnership with TWR Kenya July 23, 2019 By the TWR Canada Team
    Filed Under:
    Africa, Bible Distribution

    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. The people living in these areas have little to no access to the gospel apart from TWR broadcasts. God has blessed us with an incredible opportunity and a serious...

    Africa
    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...

    Africa
    One of my favourite Bible verses is Matthew 19:26 (ESV):

    “But Jesus looked at them and said,
    ‘With man this is impossible, but
    with God all things are possible.’”

    In my 30 plus years of ministry and in my time as TWR Canada’s president, time and time again, God shows that he still does the impossible. We don’t...

    TWR Swaziland airs programs in 31 languages, reaching millions of people in southern, eastern and central Africa with the hope of Christ. But there’s more to it – this TWR location has quite the history!

    Over 45 years ago, TWR purchased the plot of land where they would build a transmitter that would reach many in southern...
