Dave and Eleanor
Producer, Truth in the Test Tube

Dave and his late wife Doris joined TWR in 1963. During ten years at the Monte-Carlo station, they traveled several times behind what was then known as the Iron Curtain. From 1973 through 1978 they were involved in building stations in Swaziland and on Guam.

The Lord promoted Doris to heaven November 21, 2008.  Dave and the former Eleanor Weiberg were married November 26, 2011.  

Dave’s current ministry involves “pulling weeds before planting seeds.” Jesus said good seed doesn’t grow well in thorny ground. In many countries, the Enemy’s favorite thorn is indoctrination that “science proves God doesn’t exist.”

In the “Truth in the Test Tube” program, Dave pulls these thorns by analyzing the intricacies of nature and of various organs of the body – reasoning that these features imply a genius-level Creator. Many in Russia, China and elsewhere have been saved as a result.   

New episodes of the program are being produced in Spanish and English. Previous episodes remain available on websites in Russian, Mandarin Chinese, Albanian and Vietnamese.

NEW OUTREACH TO KOREA

TWR-Korea has decided to use Truth in the Test Tube. It is to be broadcast from Guam and posted on the TWR360 website, beginning in the fall, for a two-year period. They like it so well that they will provide the funds without having to rely on U.S. sponsors. We praise the Lord for this additional outreach.

THE EASTER DOWNLOAD

Dave had just returned from listening to a lecture and was loading the recording onto his computer. It took less than two minutes to transfer a one-hour lecture.

The idea hit him that this could illustrate what Jesus did during Easter week. “The Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.” If Isaiah wrote that today, would he say God downloaded our sin onto Jesus – absorbing thousands of years of sin during the few hours on the cross? We concluded by saying his “burying our sins in the depths of the sea” is like pushing the “delete” button, so our sins are “remembered no more.”

Our Spanish producers are translating that script now, to be aired and put on TWR 360 Spanish during the Easter season. Please pray that many will respond to this message and ask Jesus to "delete" their sins.

RESPONSE FROM KOREA

A listener in North Korea says, "The radio gives us strength, hope and joy despite our difficult situation, as it gives us better understanding of our faith."

SPANISH GETS A BIGGER BANG FOR THE BUCK

Nearly six years ago, we began using two stations to "Truth in the Test Tube" in Spanish (as La Verdad en el Tubo de Ensayo).   Managers at other stations discovered it and liked it so well that they now provide FREE AIRTIME.    Outreach now includes:

     - Five stations in Spain,

    - Stations along the U.S. southern border, reachng much of northern Mexico, and

   - More than 40 independent local stations in Argentina, Chile, Ecuador, Guatemala, Mexico, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico, Uruguay and Venezuela.  

Please pray that God will use the programs to lead listeners to salvation and spiritual maturity.

FOR ANYONE FEELING DISCOURAGED

Wheaton College president Phillip Ryken told his faculty and students on Wednesday that he had gone through a long time of deep discouragement, even wondering what method he might use to "end it all." This is a chapel address that took courage to give, and has already helped several people.

To hear or see it, go to http://www.wheaton.edu/WETN. Under Dr. Ryken's photo, click the speaker symbol for audio or the camera symbol for video. Definitely worth 28 minutes of your time!

ALSO, PLEASE PRAY that I'll have wisdom as I quote some of this plus other items in a script I want to write about how God can help a person to cope with life in Christ's strength.

 

Nobel Prizes Glorify God

Three of the six Nobel Prizes each year relate to various sciences, and this year's science prizes were announced October 7 through 9. The 2013 Nobel Prize for Medicine or Physiology deals with the "exquistely precise control system" of the cell. Each cell is a factory that produces and exports molecules such as insulin. It also manufactures and releases "signaling molecules" that are delivered to the right place at the right time in the cell. Disturbances in this system contribute to conditions such as neurological diseases, diabetes, and immunological disorders.PLEASE PRAY FOR DAVE as he looks into this discovery in detail. He needs wisdom in developing this discovery into a program that God can use, to convince skeptics that this brilliant design is evidence that God exists, and that He made our bodies "fearfully and wonderfully." This will be broadcast in Spanish, and posted in English and Spanish on TWR360.

Hear Truth in the Test Tube Online

Several dozen TTT programs are now on-line in English at http://www.twr360.org/ministry/16/truth-in-the-test-tube.   Many of them are also available in Spanish.

Listeners In Albania Thank Us

"Truth in the Test Tube...is a great program especially for us. We have grown up in a communist country, where people always have told us there is no God and they have tried to use scinet and philosophy to prove they were right. Thank you for these new proofs, that I didn't know before."

"I work in a coffee shop, and I leave the radio on so other people can listen also. Truth in the Test Tube has helped me to gain more knowlege about science and the relationship with God. Now I have learned things that are helping me when I talk with atheistic people."

 

 

In One Ear, Out The Other?

Sunday-school teachers must sometimes wonder how much their students are absorbing.   Those of us who work with an audience we can't see may need even more faith. So the occasional glimpse is reassuring:

-The person who fills multiple notebooks with what he hears.

-The one who records episodes so he can discuss them with friends.

But this one “beats all.”   A man inHo Chi Minh City,Vietnam, writes:

I listen to your program regularly and…the content is … relevant and convincing.   I suggested to my church to organize an evangelistic meeting with the topic “The Wonder of Life.” I also did a video clip about the immune system based on TTT content and sent it to you as a way to show our appreciation. We wish you to continue to produce more so that many people will be saved through this program.”

This man listened with both ears!  The “organ between his ears” got so excited that he spent hours (probably days!) making a four-minute video.  It illustrates for others’ eyes and ears the many strategies the immune system uses to keep us alive and healthy.

Even without understanding the sound (in Vietnamese), I admire the close-ups of skin, pores and fingerprints; the arteries and capillaries that carry antibodies to every cell in the body; and other details.  See it at:

Sometimes we wonder whether our efforts will continue bearing fruit beyond our lifetimes. Then the Lord gives a glimpse of another way He's making it take root in someone'slife – and how some enthusiastic person is “running with it” to perpetuate what we produced.
