Thousands of new radios let India's believers hear Gospel message

International Gospel radio network Trans World Radio has doubled the goal it set earlier this year to distribute 2,000 radios to believers in India. The enthusiastic response to their campaign has allowed them to send 4,000 radios that can be used by their owners to hear the Gospel.
TWR will distribute the radios through an indigenous network of evangelistic house groups across India as part of the Radio Homes project. Members of these small groups come together to listen to and discuss Bible teaching over the radio with the support of a local coordinator.
TWR has seen huge success in its mission work in India. In a previous project spanning the last two decades, TWR planted 650 churches, each one with around a hundred members. All of the churches grew up out of listener groups set up by TWR workers in villages with no previous Christian witness. "Thanks to the support of listeners in the UK we hope to carry on spreading the Gospel in the most unreached, unchurched areas of the world," the ministry said.
Trans World Radio broadcasts Christian programmes in more than 70 countries and 225 languages each week. (Source:
