TWR’s Silk Road Transmitter is on the air broadcasting Bible-based programs to a region largely unreached by the gospel. TWR has been broadcasting to the region for more than two decades, but the Silk Road Transmitter replaces obsolete equipment and ramps up the power to reach into Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and some adjacent areas.
The launch of the Silk Road Transmitter is an emotional experience, said TWR CEO Lauren Libby, who pointed out that there wasn’t a single dollar available when the project started. “To take a project, to imagine it, to work with it, to come up with a plan and see how God provides people, resources, money to make it happen, it’s almost miraculous – it is miraculous, in fact,” Libby said. “And so, when you hear that radio station on the air, it evokes a lot of emotion because you begin to realize, ‘Listen, this is the Lord’s doing.’
