    As we begin a new year, we wanted to share some amazing impact stories from our ministries around the world! In many regions, we’ve heard from our ministry partners about the significance of people receiving the Bible in their own language.

  • Many people who are familiar with our ministry know that TWR has a vast infrastructure around the world. Over the past 60 years of ministry, God has enabled us to build a global network that can reach approximately two-thirds of the world in their own language.

The TWR Canada China Ministry team put their heads together and created the SOTA tablet.
