Former Trans World Radio employees under their grouping called TWR Alumni Network recently donated money to the station amounting to One Million and fifty Thousand Kwacha (K1, 050,000.) Led by the former National Director of TWR, Reverend Patrick Semphere, the network decided to mobilize resources to give to TWR to support the ministry.
Speaking during the presentation of the cheque, Semphere emphasized the uniqueness of the radio ministry, saying he continues to be inspired by the many testimonies of the impact that TWR is making in people’s lives. He encouraged the current staff of TWR to remain focused on the vision of reaching people with the word of God.
“There are many testimonies that we will never get to hear until we get to heaven. And this should give you encouragement because you are doing a worthwhile job,” said Semphere. He added that their target was to raise 2 million Kwacha.
Earlier, Board Chair Hon Justice Esme Chombo thanked the TWR Alumni for the support.
“I register appreciation on behalf of the Board for this very timely donation for the work of the Lord. We have no doubt that this is evidence of your continued service to the Lord through TWR. May the Lord graciously bless each one of you and your families.” She said.
The donation was received with gratitude by Board Member Dr. David Kamchacha and TWR’s Head of Engineering Mr. Nyongani Chirwa. They echoed the appreciation which they said was to go a long way in advancing work of TWR of taking the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ far and wide, thank you very much.
The former National Director, however, decried the absence of news bulletins on the station. He said there was need to resume news bulletins at the interdenominational Christian station to keep listeners in the know of what is happening around them and elsewhere.
Through the last 30 years, TWR has contributed various persons to the nation serving in politics, media, health, human rights, academia and the church among others.
