TWR-Hong Kong... reaching China with God's word since 1977
TWR-Hong Kong (TWR-HK) held a thanksgiving dinner on June 17 to share their vision and celebrate their partnerships with local church pastors, ministry partners, lay leaders and volunteers (and to celebrate the 33rd anniversary). Many old friends and new ones as well, gathered to give thanks to the Lord for TWR-HK’s ministry.
TWR’s China ministry began in 1977 with the establishment of the first shortwave broadcasting station on the US territory of Guam. Since then, Chinese radio programs have been produced in Hong Kong and broadcast into the vast harvest fields of mainland China. The ministry in Hong Kong has grown much over the last 30 years. During that time, many people in China have heard the gospel and have turned to Christ. In that time, the ministry has also grown with the needs of the listeners – from using primarily shortwave radio to broadcast the gospel in rural areas, to utilizing modern technology such as the Internet to reach listeners in city centers.
At the banquet, TWR’s President and CEO, Lauren Libby, shared about TWR’s Global Strategic Plans (GSPs) and vision, and also issued a rallying call to those present. Lauren invited the partners – old and new – to come alongside TWR and TWR-HK in ministry partnership, and keep our eyes open to the opportunities God has given us to reach His people.
TWR-HK’s desire is to establish partnerships with like-minded people and organizations to fulfill the Great Commission. Over the last 30 years or so, there have been twists and turns, as well as ups and downs, and the journey has been anything but easy. However, with faith and trust in God, and partners alongside fighting the good fight, TWR-HK will be able to continue bearing lasting fruit in the years to come.
The fields of China are ripe for the harvest. Now is the time to get involved in missions, and participate in the work of the gospel, whether through prayer or giving. Are you ready to join TWR-HK in their ministry?
