The city of Maiduguri, Nigeria has over a million residents. You may not be familiar with this city in the far northeastern corner of the most populous country in Africa, but it is vitally important to us at TWR. Confirmation that our new Oasis signal is being received here means that a full schedule of Gospel programming is now reaching this troubled region where attacks by Boko Haram militants and nomadic herdsmen have killed tens of thousands.
“Oasis is listened to from southern to northern Nigeria,” said Abdoulaye Sangho, TWR’s international director for West Africa. “It is really great what the Lord is doing through TWR, and I am absolutely confident that this will go on increasing.”
The Oasis AM transmitter went on the air early this year after TWR supporters raised the money to fund its installation at the West Africa Transmitting Station. Station manager Garth Kennedy and WATS are enhancing the Oasis outreach by making available solar radios fixed-tuned to the TWR signals for distribution to listeners, Sangho added. More radios are being ordered.
“A very beautiful thing happening is that most people who receive the radios call us or send short messages to us, sharing the themes of messages they listen to on the Oasis transmitter and the benefits they derive from the teachings,” Sangho said. “This is really awesome and shows that the investment is indeed yielding fruit in the lives of men.”
Join with us as we pray for the Oasis ministry to Nigeria. We thank God that through the new transmitter even more people have the opportunity to hear the Gospel. We pray for God’s protection and peace in this troubled region and ask that the work of TWR would continue to bear great fruit.
