Importance of Short-Wave Radio
Updated: Jul 30
To understand the amazing work God is doing through Trans World Radio, TWR (twr.org), you have to grasp the importance of short-wave radio. "Shortwave radio can travel long distances, is robust, and listeners can’t be traced. Its anonymity makes it safer for listeners in countries like Sudan, where freedom of religion is restricted." Part of the ministry is establishing short-wave radio transmissions. Another part is creating and broadcasting content in the local language. And then there's this, real-life example in Sudan: "A local pastor distributes radios to remote areas of Sudan. He travels into the mountains where people don’t have internet or mobile phones. He goes house-to-house, giving out radios and teaching people how to use them. For many of these people, it’s their only chance to listen to the gospel message."
