The Bible describes the word of God as a sword (Heb. 4:12; Eph. 6:17). TWR’s programming is all about teaching listeners how to wield this sword of the Spirit.

When broadcasting on short wave or medium wave, mountains, valleys and winter weather can often prevent the programs from getting through. This is especially true in KwaZulu-Natal (KZN), South Africa. Add to this the broad displacement of people, the lack of electricity and the difficulty in acquiring batteries, and you have a challenge on your hands.

TWR has risen to this challenge by distributing Sabers among KZN listeners! Sabers look like radios, but they’re quite unique – they don’t need batteries! The listener can generate the power required to operate the device by winding it up. The radios also don’t need to receive a signal – they are embedded with two gigabytes worth of TWR programming. Now listener groups can listen to TWR programs anywhere, anytime on these robust MP3 players designed for Africa.

After three to six months, the Saber devices will be returned to receive a fresh two gigabytes worth of programs, and sent back out to train Christians in handling the sword of the Spirit.
