Sri Lanka Broadcasting - Trans World Radio Canada
Sri Lanka

In 2014, TWR Canada began sponsoring a 30-minute weekly program, God’s Unique Book, to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ to the majority Sinhala Buddhist community in Sri Lanka. The first year of programming was based on the book By This Name (by Canadian author John Cross), and sought to explain what makes the God of the Bible unique from all other gods or spirits. Following completion of this book, the TWR team in Sri Lanka created original programming covering topics such as salvation, the life, death and resurrection of Jesus, who God is, what the Bible is, the authority of the Bible, and family issues. God’s Unique Book is aired on national radio at night, and reports indicate that families are listening to the programs together, and that those of other faiths are listening to the program and seeking more information about what they hear.

Impact:

"I have been listening to [God's Unique Book] for a long time. I'm a retired postman. I came to the Christian faith from a Buddhist background. Since then I have read many books about Christianity to improve my knowledge and understanding. The accuracy of the Bible program was a real blessing for me. I learned a lot of historical facts about the Bible which I didn't know before. After that program a great curiosity has grown inside of me about the Bible. Thank you for doing these kind of programs for us."

Prayer Requests:

  • Pray for listeners who are choosing to follow God after listening to God’s Unique Book.
  • Pray for the team in Sri Lanka as they respond to listeners and create new programs based on feedback and the needs of their country.

Your gift to Sri Lanka Broadcasting will fund the continued broadcasting of God's Unique Book.
