Mike and Wendy
Engineer

The Lamberts are missionaries to the TWR station in Eswatini, Africa (formerly known as Swaziland).  From that station, TWR broadcasts the gospel out over a vast region across central and southern Africa that includes countries like Sudan, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Somalia, Nigeria, and others where Christians are severely persecuted.  Throughout the broadcast region, there are many who are illiterate and remote, making radio one of the only ways to reach them. 

Mike serves as Chief Engineer, managing the engineering team that is responsible for maintaining, troubleshooting, and optimizing the three 100kW shortwave transmitters, a 100kW AM transmitter, and multiple medium to long range broadcast antennas.

In early 2022, Mike and Wendy, along with their son Jackson, will be leaving behind their team on Eswatini and transitioning to the Guam transmitter site.  While there is still much ministry to do in Eswatini, Mike knows that he is leaving the technical operations there in capable hands as he looks to give assistance where it is needed most.  When Mike and Wendy first joined TWR, they were heading for Guam, but they were committed to going where the Lord would send them and where the need was greatest.  This meant that, before they had finished raising support, the plan changed and they were headed to Eswatini.  That same commitment is what has lead them to pick up and move again.

From Guam, TWR broadcasts throughout Asia, into hard to reach places like North Korea, China, Myanmar, and Vietnam.  Many of the places they broadcast are largely unreachable except by way of shortwave radio.

 

Mike and Wendy both feel that Christian radio has played a large role in their spiritual growth.  In fact, it was through Christian radio that Wendy first heard about the critical need TWR has for engineering staff.  With how much they have been blessed by Christian radio, they are really looking forward to the opportunity to serve God’s kingdom by helping others in some of the darkest places to be blessed by it as well.

Would you prayerfully consider partnering with the Lamberts in this ministry?  They are looking for individuals, families, and churches that are willing to support their ministry financially and with prayer.
