      Fulfilling the Great Commission

      May 14, 2019 By the TWR Canada Team

      “I was brought up in a non-Christian family, and as of now, I am the only believer in my family. I have a business of my own, and I’m quite actively involved with a major political party. As such, I don’t usually find time to have a regular quiet time. Most weeks, it’s even hard for me to attend the Sunday service in my church. The lack of spiritual nourishment became a point of concern for me, but I was quite helpless. I knew in my heart that I was living a life of compromise, and I was compromising on the things that I needed most.”

      This starts the testimony of Rajkumar, a member of one of TWR India’s Radio Home Groups. His struggle is one many of us can relate to. We live our lives; we go about our day-to-day tasks and become consumed by being busy. Thankfully for Rajkumar, there is more to his story:

      “One day I got a call from a TWR India staff member, and he invited me for a seminar. He told me about the Radio Home Groups and how it can help me rebuild my relationship with God. Towards the end of the seminar, I filled out the commitment form and was given a CD. Later, another brother provided me with a radio kit, and I started a Radio Home Group with my family. Listening to the programs, I felt truly blessed, and I could feel my bond with the Father grow stronger with every passing day.”

      The ministry partnership of TWR Canada and TWR India equips groups of people to meet together in Radio Home Groups. In these groups, there is time for listening to the Word of God, worship through music, prayer, fellowship and encouragement in the faith. TWR Canada provided half of the funds for 3,000 radio home kits that TWR India distributed through the first half of 2018.

      Through this project, we were able to distribute content in more than 30 languages.

      The Radio Home Group ministry set out to encourage new believers and seasoned disciples alike to grow in their faith through easy access to systematic and theologically correct Biblical teachings in the heart languages of those participating. Rajkumar’s story continues:   

      “The messages helped me strengthen my roots in the Word, and I could understand the Scriptures so much more, something I could never do before. I have now started to encourage my neighbours to join me and my family to listen to the Word of God. I feel like every time I call someone new to be a part of our group, I am working towards fulfilling the great commission.”

      We are thankful to have the opportunity through this partnership to see new disciples and to help those who have previously made a proclamation of faith be renewed and encouraged to spread the hope of Christ among their nation. 

      Praise the Lord for the work he is doing in India through Radio Home Groups! Please continue to pray with us for hearts to be transformed and sanctified through this incredible project for the glory of God and the spread of his love to all people.
