TWR has been actively serving Nepal through radio programs for many years. Through its broadcasts, scores of people have been led to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. As a result, several Bible studies and worship groups have been formed. TWR's radio ministry is not only bringing people to the Lord, but has nourished and matured lay believers and pastors who, today, are living effective lives as disciples. Radio broadcasts serve an important and critical role in Nepal, as many first-generation pastors and leaders have never attended a seminary. The majority of new believers in rural Nepal have never received any formal education at all.
With over 150 local FM stations located across the country, radio is the most effective and accessible medium to communicate with the Nepalese. Unfortunately, poverty is a major challenge, especially in rural areas; it makes even a cheap, hand-held radio beyond the reach of many people. According to ruralpovertyportal.org, approximately 40 percent of Nepalese people live below the poverty line of $12 per person each month.
Currently, TWR-Nepal receives an average of 600 responses every month from listeners. Seven new churches have been established, 20 Bible study groups meet regularly, and an average of 50 people are baptized every year. It is a great opportunity to bring the Word of God to the 97 percent of Nepalese people who do not yet know Christ.
Just $35 will help place a radio in the hands of a grateful Nepalese listener who can then hear the life-changing message of Jesus. Imagine the impact hundreds of these radios can make as they spread the gospel person by person throughout Nepal!
