“I love Jesus, but I am alone …”
Those distressing words came from a Trans World Radio listener who lives in a Middle Eastern country we cannot name. Christians there are routinely harassed, ostracized and persecuted for their faith. And many of them, like this believer, feel isolated.
Another listener in the Middle East told an even more heartrending story: “I used to work for the government in my country, but when they discovered my [Christian] faith, I was put in prison and stayed there for five years.
“When I got out of prison, my family didn’t take me in, and I felt so lonely and sad.”
TWR (also known as Trans World Radio) says they often receive stories like this from listeners in the Middle East. Many of them live in hostile environments far from Christian fellowship.
“You can imagine their joy when they discover TWR’s Hope for the Middle East broadcasts,” TWR said in a recent ministry update.
“Suddenly, they realize they are not alone.”
The ministry says that when listeners tune into TWR, they discover a wealth of Bible-based teachings and other Christian resources. They receive godly encouragement and comfort in the privacy of their homes, safe from their oppressors.
To keep these vital programs going out to the Middle East, TWR said the ministry needs to quickly raise $106,000.
