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. 

Language: Mandarin

Country: China

A sister from Shandong province in China who is a student of TWR’s Seminary on the Air program, writes to share her story with us.

I am a first-year student of Seminary on the Air. Although I have yet to meet you face-to-face, I feel as if we are old friends.

A sister in Christ introduced your broadcast to me, and it has been such a great blessing in my life! Every night, I listen to your broadcast with great excitement. My heart finds great comfort listening to the program.

Also, the voices of your presenters share the Word of God in an intimate manner. It is like meeting with the Lord face-to-face! It feels as if the Lord is upholding me and leading me forward, step-by-step, via the radio during times of trials and tribulations. 

Through your program, the Lord has been opening my eyes. I have gained a greater understanding about many truths of his Kingdom. I have also personally experienced God’s almighty strength and great merciful love.

Now I am studying the Seminary on the Air curriculum on the Internet. God has opened the way, and he has helped me find time to be equipped. Even though it is part of the second-year curriculum, the lesson on homiletics is of tremendous help to me.

I wholeheartedly thank God as well as the teachers and producers of the program. I will tell more people about your radio programs so that your broadcast may be a blessing to more people.

While writing this letter, I could not hold back my tears. Thinking about your work and what you have offered, I am overwhelmed with unspeakable gratitude. I am grateful for the merciful love of God for allowing me to experience his almighty power and goodness.

My relationship with God has also become more intimate. I have some good news to share, too! God has begun to work within my family. My parents have decided to pray and trust in the Lord. Also, God has brought about great change in the attitudes of my husband and my in-laws.
