Hope travels on the air in India

By March 18, 2008

India (MNN/TWR) — Trans World
Radio
began broadcasting in five Indian languages in 1978 from a single AM-station with a 400,000-watt transmitter.

For three decades, the ministry
has made sharing the hope of Christ its primary commitment while working to
meet the spiritual, educational, social and cultural needs of its audience
through 380 programs broadcast.

Today, the ministry has grown to
62 languages reaching out via shortwave, AM, FM, as well as podcasting,
television audio feed and Internet audio streaming. Listener response varies
from 30,000 to 60,000 each month.

To mark the 30-year milestone,
TWR-India is organizing national listener rallies, clergy development meetings,
women's meetings, musical events and more interactive programs across the
country.

According to TWR, the ministry
team is also involved in many on-the-ground personal outreaches. They sponsor
five children from a boys' home in New Delhi and partner with a local church
and the City Care Network to distribute wheelchairs to those in need in
Hyderabad.

Continue to lift up the needs of
this team and pray for God's protection as they work to share the Gospel in
some regions that have not been open to it.
