‘At the moment, our Trans World Radio partner in Central Asia is in urgent need of a better car to visit listeners, churches etc. for radio distribution etc. As this is an urgent need we are looking for a partner who can step in and help TWR to buy this car.’
This was a request from SGA’s ‘Partners in Mission’ TWR. It was explained how the staff use a privately owned car for trips to visit churches and listeners. However, as this 1999 car needs extensive repairs and the number of trips is growing, there is an urgent need for a reliable car that will allow the team to continue and extend the ministry of sharing the hope of Jesus Christ with people (often listeners) in Central Asia.
Following some discussions, we were pleased to be able to help provide part of the funds required for a 2014 Honda CR-V. We consider this another opportunity to help reach Central Asia with the Gospel. The TWR missionary was thrilled and very thankful to the SGA supporters for their generosity. He writes:
‘We are very thankful for SGA’s support for this new car. This new car will become a blessing for the team and provide them with good and safe transportation during long trips to our listeners, partners and churches in Central Asia.’
In the last years, the team distributed hundreds of radios to listeners in rural areas and spoke in churches. A reliable car will help the team to visit listeners in places that sometimes takes a 6-hour drive and especially for the distribution of radios/MP3 players and SD Cards.
Our TWR partner summed it up in the following way:
‘Although it is just a car… it is a tool with the same purpose of all that we do – preach God’s Word to the people in Central Asia, tell them about Jesus.’
