TWR Canada has partnered with A Visit with Mrs. G Ministries to translate, produce and distribute Bible stories for children in Arabic, Mandarin, Persian, Spanish and Swahili. These stories are also aired in English in Malawi, with the potential for translation into the local Chichewa language as the need is assessed.
A Visit with Mrs. G stories were written and produced for radio in the late 1970’s. These 50+ books by Kitty Anna Griffiths are dramatic re-tellings of Bible stories intended to "come alive” for children. The books follow the lives of Adam and Eve, Joseph, Abraham, Isaac, Moses, Jesus and more. A Visit with Mrs. G stories in English are broadcast across the United States and around the world via shortwave and satellite radio, and can also be found on TWR360.
The Arabic, Mandarin, Spanish and Swahili stories are now available on TWR360, with more to be added as they are completed.
In Kenya, the Swahili programs are broadcast on two radio stations as part of a children’s program every Saturday. Here’s what some children have said about the program:
One boy listens to the program every Saturday morning as he does his chores.
A 12-year-old girl says that she listens to the program with her younger siblings, and that it has helped her to grow spiritually. She encourages other children to listen to the program as well.
- Pray for the translation and production teams as they translate and produce each book.
- Pray for the children and families listening to these programs, that they would individually and collectively grow in their faith. Pray especially for children of other religions who are listening.
Your gift to Children's Bible Stories allows us to distribute these stories around the world.
