      From Here To Timbuktu!

      From Here to Timbuktu...

      Listeners from Timbuktu, Mali share their stories...

      Timbuktu is a real place. It's in the West African country of Mali on the southern edge of the Sahara Desert. Timbuktu has been inhabited since the 12th Century and in the 1600s became a centre of trade and Islamic learning. We hope these stories from real people whose lives have been changed through TWR's gospel programming will encourage you.

      You Seem Sincere...

      "I don't have any knowledge of the gospel and have never read the Bible. By chance I tuned to the evangelical station and listened to your program. I have been surprised by the preaching of the Word of God. I have never entered a church and think that, being of another religion, I must not enter into such a place. But what I have heard has made me very curious. You seem sincere and truthful. May I have a Bible from you that I can read discreetly?"

      I Am Afraid to Believe In Jesus...

      “For a long time I have been against the Christian faith and hostile to hear from your religion. By listening to your programs I think now I am wrong. But I am afraid to continue listening to you. All my friends and relatives are of another religion like myself. I am afraid to change my religion and believe in Jesus. Can you pray for me and give me some counsel?"

      I See People Tuning In To Your Station...

      "May I request that you complete the series of the Gospel you have sent us? You know I'm in Timbuktu and there are not many Christians who can produce good Bible teaching. Your programs are relevant to the mindset of the people here. When broadcasting, I used to walk in the city and I often see people tuning in to your station and listening to the program. I can see and experience many changes in the attitude of people about Christianity and Christians. May the Lord bless you mightily."

      The message of the Gospel, and hearing the Word of God transforms lives! Please pray for the listeners in Timbuktu, and other places, who struggle to leave their religion to embrace Christ. Learn about other evangelistic programs here.SaveSave
