Dumisani Tembo, staff of TWR identified the beneficiaries, most of whom live within the clean and clean FM signal at Nkhorongo in Mzuzu and they hear it on 106.4 FM. They complained of regular power failures and affecting their listening.
Not neglected by TWR,
At the southern western border of Mwanza, busy as it may become, there are some keen listeners to TWR especially at Chikolosa Village.
Resource Mobilization Manager Willie Kanthenga and Producer Pheston Kawawa reported that the recipients were grateful to God and prayed for TWR’s success, and pledged to continue praying and being supportive to the ministry.
One of the families, a few years ago asked TWR Staff member Victor (and his wife) to name their child. The girl was named Chinsinsi which means revelation. The family continues to faithfully listen to TWR.
Mwanza gets the FM signal via 106.4, 89.1 and 96.4. A stray signal also comes through. It is among the joyful first communities to get the FM signal in 2001.
Thyolo Village Headwoman preaches “TWR”.
At Kuyama Village, the village headwoman was all praises that TWR visited and distributed radio sets to her community members. She said this was the first time her village had Christian visitors with such great gifts. She said most of other visitors are politicians.
She was among the 20 who received a radio set in Goliyati, Thyolo within a few kilometres of the state president’s village.
Ken Mpisa, a primary school teacher yet with vision impairment had arranged everything for TWR crew.
While this exercise was on, Victor asked the on air presenter in Lilongwe to play a song in dedication of the “new” listeners gathered. They were all amazed to hear their village mentioned on air and hear the song.
Ndaula, Lilongwe, 50 km outside Lilongwe City
Some of the beneficiaries started listening to TWR in 1985. One couple got saved (at separate times) through TWR.Visiting Ndaula is a risk for TWR because the listeners get too organized with things to do and food to be eaten.
Because of the large numbers of needy people, we doubled the number of beneficiaries for this area which had people from several village groups with some having cycled over 20 km to be here.
They have an ongoing radio-based fellowship which also annually blesses TWR with harvest and financial resources;.
