TWR Arabic Programme

TWR-Arabic-prg 1TWR Arabic programme resonates with Middle Eastern listeners. In a historic development, the Arabic version of the popular TWR programme Women of Hope is being aired in prime time on a popular FM station in the heart of the Middle East. 

Starting November 2014, Laki Raja, which is the Arabic name of Women of Hope, is being broadcast free of charge four times a week by a widely heard station in Lebanon. The broadcasts reach listeners in that country, as well as in Syria and Palestine.

This is a new initiative in TWR’s history. With many Syrian and Iraqi refugees in Lebanon, this comes as an amazing opportunity to share the Gospel with women who have lost their homes, husbands, and sometimes children too, and who are in desperate need of hearing a message of hope.

A better time of year couldn’t have been chosen for news of the programme launch in Lebanon, according to Marli Spieker, founder and Global Director of Project Hannah ( Women of Hope is the flagship radio programme of Project Hannah, TWR’s worldwide women’s ministry and prayer movement.

“All our collective prayers and the hard work are paying off in God’s perfect timing!” Spieker said. “At this Christmas season, we bow before our God in awe of His faithfulness and grace as He takes our feeble efforts and uses Project Hannah and those of you who have devoted your time, resources and passion to convey His grace and salvation to women in that vast and troubled region.”

Response has been encouraging from listeners to the new broadcasts in Lebanon, as well as from audiences of TWR’s existing Arabic programming (via both the Internet and from broadcast transmitters located outside the region). TWR-Arabic-prg 3

On the first day of the new broadcasts, people began using phone calls, WhatsApp text messages and Facebook to interact about the programme. “And more than 90 per cent of the followers and correspondents are non-Christian people, both men and women!” The Arabic Ministry Director wrote by email. “Praise God! Women are listening to the episode on Facebook and are sharing their comments. Some write private emails to ask theological questions about God and Jesus, and to share their sad stories and struggles. The harvest is plentiful!”

The Laki Raja Facebook page was unveiled in 2012 and, after a promotional campaign this summer, has seen a surge to more than 25 000 likes. TWR content in Arabic is also available at
