      A Year in Review

      December 27, 2021 By the TWR Canada Team

      As 2021 draws to a close, TWR Canada is taking time to reflect on the many ways that we have seen God’s steadfast faithfulness this year. While there is no way we could fit everything into one update, we wanted to draw attention to just a few of the ways we have seen God working in TWR Canada and its ministries around the world!

      Right Here at Home:

      • There has been lots of change at the TWR Canada office this year, but we have seen God’s faithfulness through it all! We have been able to return to working in-person more frequently and are enjoying reconnecting with each other in the office. We continue to thank God for providing us with a beautiful space to work in every day!
      • TWR Canada is continuing to translate and produce Bible stories in nine different languages! Using the stories from the Bible Stories Alive series, we work with A Visit with Mrs. G Ministries to translate, produce and distribute Bible stories about the lives of people like Adam and Eve, Noah, and Jesus. We receive testimonies from listeners whose lives have been impacted by the stories. To read more about Mrs. G and Bible Stories Alive, click here! You can also read more about the impact of Bible Stories Alive by clicking here.
      • The Quebec FM station is on the air! We are thanking God for his faithfulness through this project, which began six years ago as a vision for an FM radio network in Quebec. After years of fundraising, construction, and waiting for inspections and licencing, the station went live on October 10th. To read more about the FM station, click here!
      • TWR Canada has launched an app! The Speak Hope app is now available on both Google Play and Apple’s App Store. This app allows us to minister to people by providing many of our media resources and Bible studies. The app is currently available in 11 languages! We praise God for allowing us the opportunity to develop this app so that we can continue ministering to people all around the world.

      Ministries Around the World:

      • 2021 saw the creation of more than 1,500 new radio home groups across South Asia! These groups allow participants to listen to an audio program and discuss the message with a small group. Read about the impact that these groups can have here! You can read even more impact stories here.
      • 2021 also saw the creation of at least 45 new small groups in refugee camps. These small groups use Discipleship Essentials as their curriculum to guide them through learning about Jesus. Discipleship Essentials has also expanded to the radio and is broadcast in French in West Africa and Spanish in Latin America. Click here to read more about DE.
      • In August, TWR Canada’s Persian Ministry was able to host their first conference in nearly two years, with another conference in September! These conferences are an important part of the Persian Ministry because they provide believers with a safe space to worship and learn together. Read more about the conferences here!
      • TWR Canada continues to work closely with missionaries around the world. The Clarkes are one of these missionary families and they are based in Eswatini, a country currently struggling with civil unrest. Through it all, the Clarkes continue to praise God for his faithfulness. Click here to read more about the Clarkes, or here to read about some of TWR Canada’s other missionaries.

      These are just a few of the incredible things God is doing through TWR Canada. We are thankful for his provision, especially through the upheaval that COVID-19 has brought. We continue to praise God for everything he is doing in and through our ministries, and we can’t wait to see what plans he has for us in 2022 and the years to come!
