Ted and Dawn

Dawn grew up living a nomad’s life since her father was in the US Navy.  Still, when they married in 1984, Ted and Dawn never imagined what God had planned for them. In less than two years God moved them from South Dakota to Taiwan.  There they served as English teachers on the air for the programs Studio Classroom and Let’s Talk in English at Overseas Radio and Television.  Living there opened their eyes to how many people live unaware of God’s love and plan of salvation through Jesus Christ.

On a vacation in Guam, they visited TWR and were hooked!  They joined TWR on Guam in 1994 and later served in The Netherlands and Vienna Austria.  Since July 2018 they have been a part of the team on Cyprus. Ted is a member of TWR’s Global Media Training Team.  He also coordinates media training for ministry teams in Europe and that surrounding region. Dawn has been working with refugees, teaching English. And other ministries through our local church.

Children: Justin, Tabitha, Kerith and Micah.

Sharing Skills

When Dawn and I visited my cousin, Ruth Smith, and her husband Jay, on a recent trip, he offered to give me a leather belt. Then he proceeded to show me how to make it. He had specialized tools, and a specific sequence of steps to do the job right.

That reminds us to ask you to pray for Ted and TWR's Global Media Training Team (GMT) as they develop a strategy for training people to effectively communicate God's Word via multiple media forms. The GMT meets online the second Thursday of each month. Pray that God will raise up many communicators who can mentor others for this task!

Music Interns Complete 10 Songs

Hamish Uhlig and Grant McEachern completed a summer internship with Ted Siemens, TWR-Europe Media Training Coordinator, during which they planned and created music that can be used by TWR-Europe’s national partner organizations in their media productions. They learned about RTM-Portugal, inquiring about the style and feel of music needed in the RTM programs. They listened to the Portuguese programs on the internet, and read through English scripts of the Women of Hope programs. Then they headed to TWR’s studio in Vienna where they composed and recorded 10 songs. Levi Simões, studio operator at RTM-Portugal commented, "I am happy with this exchange of experiences... and will test [the songs] in a program."
