Finding a partnership that is more tightly knit and productive than the one bonding TWR with Thru the Bible would be difficult – if not impossible.
The two media ministries have been cooperating more than four decades, with TWR translating and producing broadcasts of Dr. J. Vernon McGee’s Bible-teaching program in more than 100 languages. This in-depth study of the entire Bible has made a difference in lives across the planet, just as it did in the life of this Romanian listener.
I have great news! My daughter and my son-in-law have accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. I have given them a lot of information about the Bible. All of it is from the Thru the Bible series.
Now both of them have decided to be baptized. I am very glad and thankful to our Lord for the way he worked in my family.
Also I am thankful for Thru the Bible’s ministry in Romania. Because I am retired, I can go to different rural churches in my area to encourage them and motivate them to Bible study. Many people ask me how I got the historical and theological information I know. I learned all that I know from listening to Thru the Bible.
I have very poor vision, so it is very hard for me to read. I share with them about this program and encourage them to listen or ask [TWR] for CDs or DVDs. Thank you very much for this ministry! God bless you!
