Listeners are at the heart of everything we do, and we simply can’t get enough of their feedback – who they are, what kind of impact TWR programming is having on them, how God is working in their lives. For 2014 we have assembled 60 compelling, representative responses into a special booklet and will feature one response online each week in celebration of our 60th anniversary.

I am an officer in the national army. I got saved during very difficult times thanks to your program Good News for All.

My colleagues and I were in the bush fighting during the civil war in my country. We could not go to church, and no preacher could come to us in the bush. Radio was the only source of information and our church!

One Saturday, the preacher made an altar call after his sermon in that program. I knew I needed to surrender my life to Christ, and I did that. Thank you for saving my life because I now know that even if I died during the fighting, my soul would be saved.

From that time on, I persevered in that way, and now I serve in my church with responsibilities entrusted to me by the congregation.
