Gospel broadcasts removed from two crucial radio networks

By May 16, 2008

Russia (MNN) — Trans World Radio is finding new ways to broadcast into Russia,
after two national radio networks removed its programs from their
transmission schedule at the end of 2007. TWR had been reaching 11 time zones through those channels since
1991. 

Former listeners have mourned the loss of TWR’s broadcasts,
describing them as “healing, clean, living water.”  

Since losing this critical means of spreading the gospel,
TWR has begun airing live over the Internet and plans to increase the coverage and
airtime of a transmitter in Estonia. Recent statistics demonstrate that 28.7
million Russians or about 25% of the Russian population now use the Internet,
including 695,000 residents of Moscow. 

TWR also has a transmitter in Grigoriopol that covers four
time zones, and six radio stations in Siberia
broadcast TWR programs. The Grigoriopol
transmitter broadcasts in Ukrainian and Russian for 90 minutes every day and
reaches about 50-60% of the Russian population.  

TWR programs in Siberia
reach the homes of about a million people in six cities. TWR provides literature for listeners who
respond to broadcasts and connects them with local churches. One listener responded to a broadcast
teaching that the witchcraft she practiced is wrong. 

Please pray for the success of TWR expansions in Russia and its
neighboring countries.
