For over 20 years, Trans World Radio Kenya has been taking listeners through the bible on radio through “Neno Litaendela”also known us Thru The Bible Swahili (TTB).
Since Radio knows no boundaries, the program has not only been a blessing to Kenya but also to the neighboring country of Tanzania through our partnering station Sauti Ya Injili ( Voice of the Gospel ) Radio.
Although the station already completed airing the series, the transformation it had on the life of Jacob (not his real name) is great and his is a testimony that no matter the life challenges God has good plans for all that believe and Trust in him.
“Hello I would like to greet you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, my name is Jacob from Tanzania’s Mwangoi County in Tanga Province. I am pleased to have finally located your contacts. I have always wanted to appreciate you for the good ministry service that you are doing on Radio through Neno litaendelea by Pastor Geoffrey Wanjala Munialo. It is through these teachings that I was able to surrender my life to Christ after listening to the programs.
My life testimony begins from when I was born 25 years ago. I was born in non-Christian family and few months after giving birth to me, my single mother suffered a mental condition and so she could not take up her parental responsibilities. My grandparents could also not take care of me so they took me to an institution for orphans under the Lutheran Church
I stayed in the institution for seven years until when I was ready to begin my lower primary education. I went back to our village to stay with my relatives. When I was there it’s when I started listening to Sauti ya Injili radio and it became favorite radio station despite my relatives detestation since it’s a Christian station and they are non-Christians.
As I continued to listen to The Word on Neno Litaendelea, my desire to learn more about Christianity kept on surging. One day after I had cleared class 7 (Upper Primary), I listened to a preaching by pastor and I got the conviction and went to my childhood home and requested to be baptized and be recognized as a Christian.
Later on, was baptized and I dropped my family name & religion. That marked the beginning of my walk with Christ thanks to your wonderful program that I listened to until 2008.
Currently I fellowship with the Lutheran church and I work in the tourism sector here in Tanzania. I hold a Diploma in Tourism after I got a sponsor who supported my education.
I feel wonderful & grateful to have known Christ and I thank God for my life testimony. I also thank God for sending me Christian friends, they have become my family after my parents died and some of my relatives have understood me thus the harmony is present.
I would like to encourage you to continue with the good work as I also welcome you to Tanzania."
