It is such a privilege to be able to be in Phnom Penh to celebrate ten amazing years of ministry with this team that has been so mightily used of God. The staff did a great job of organizing the program, entertainment and meal, all decorated in bright, colourful, Cambodian style.

Guests were welcomed by a talented group of young musicians and a troupe of dancers doing a traditional dance of blessing and a dance of harvest.

Dan Blosser, a TWR missionary who has been in Phnom Penh since the beginning of the work, reviewed the history and talked about the current response to just a few of the programs that exist today.


We heard testimonies from a number of listeners and partners of what TWR has meant to them over the years. Certificates and letters of appreciation were presented to individuals who had been regular listeners of Women of Hope for more than five years and those who had completed the Through the Bible series.

The day ended with a time of fellowship around a great meal prepared by the catering company which had set up their temporary “kitchen” in the vacant field beside the office.

This ministry began through the efforts of one woman to translate and broadcast the Woman of Hope program and has now grown to a very competent team that reaches all ages, throughout the country. The Children’s team alone receives an average of 1200 listener letters a month, a fact that is much more significant when you consider that this is a country that is essentially without a postal service. TWR has created their own system of drop-off and pick-up points, using taxis, buses and motorcycles so that they can maintain and build relationships with their listeners.

Congratulations to Veasna and all of the TWR Cambodia staff.  I look forward to what God has in store for you over the next ten years.
