Taking a break after playing at our favorite playground

At the end of February, Ryan released the first version of the new uploading app for our partners to post content on TWR’s platforms including the TWR360 app.  This is a huge milestone for a project that has been a long time coming.  After we work out the bugs with this release we will begin to add new features that will help us get programs to listeners faster.

Early in February Ryan released new versions of our Apple and Android TWR Africa apps.  The developer of the Android version wanted to focus on other things so Ryan was given responsibility of both versions of the app.  Listeners to our Johannesburg station enjoy the app as an alternative way to listen to TWR Africa and to catch up on last week’s programs they were unable to catch live.

Late last year, our Swaziland transmitter was turned slightly so that our programs could reach more of Somalia. One of the programs was an audio version of The Jesus Film. We received 500 listener responses from Somalia saying how blessed they were by the broadcast. Praise God for his Word reaching their hearts.

Ary and Owen leaving for their first day of school

The week after Christmas we spent some time at Mculu and Gogo’s (Grandpa and Grandma in Siswati) farm in Swaziland. Ary and Owen had so much fun chasing chickens, feeding pigs, and playing with their “cousin” Nina. We went sightseeing too. Gogo took us to the first church started in Swaziland. It is still there and going strong. We climbed a mountain. It was quite steep and Ary climbed up and down all by herself.

Now that the new school year has started, Elyse volunteers once a week at the school our church runs. She listens to kids read. We are just starting with three letter words right now but by the end of the year, the kids will be reading simple stories. While Elyse volunteers, Ary and Owen go to school. They love school and their teachers.

Listener Story

By the same grace I am free from captives. Yes, I am free now. I was in strong devil’s bonds. I could mess around with other girlfriends leaving my wife at home. I could pretend to be righteous before my church. I was a secret sinner. Not everyone could recognise it. I don’t really know how to say it. I gradually begun to realise that God was condemning my pretence. TWR, by God’s grace, has totally contributed to the change of my life with one of its programs – ‘100% Worship”. I have a story on what happened that day. It was during the hour of 100% Worship. I was singing the songs played during the program. I later realised a flow of water fell from my eyes. My whole body became weak. Then I realised that I was among the fellowship members praying in my house. God touched my heart through those songs.”
