David worked on a farm in Kenya and spent most of the little money he earned on alcohol. One night, while walking on the road in a drunken stupor, he was struck by a car and seriously injured. After the accident, David woke up in hospital, fortunate to be alive but paralyzed for life. After months of treatment, he returned home a very bitter man and cursed God for what had happened to him. He heaped verbal abuse on his wife and children until they couldn’t take it anymore. In desperation, they asked a pastor to visit him, which he did several times, enduring David’s bitter verbal abuse.
One day, the pastor brought a radio with him and tuned it to a TWR program in Swahili - David’s own language. He turned up the volume, put it out of David’s reach and left. David had no choice but to listen, and was challenged by the speaker who told of God’s love for him, even though he may be walking through the valley of the shadow of death.
The next day David listened again – and then again and again. He surrendered to Christ and his life was completely changed! Today he plays his guitar in his church and participates as much as he can. With tears in his eyes, David thanks TWR for its programs and the change Christ has made in his life.
Because someone paid for this program to be aired, David’s life has been changed forever. To learn more about David’s story from TWR-Africa’s website and how you can help keep radio programs like this on the air, click here.
