TWR360 is providing online resources specially geared toward helping people cope with the global crisis.

The increased use of digital tools over the past few months has led many people to turn to the internet for answers during these uncertain times. In response, this multilingual digital arm of TWR (also known as Trans World Radio) is featuring content that provides biblical perspectives on life’s hardest questions.

“People are either suicidal or depressed or they have anxiety because of the turbulent times, so they start typing search terms along the lines of ‘is god real?’ or ‘god, help me,’” TWR360 Operations Manager David Creech said. “We actually use those key terms for our search results in 360 so we get matches and provide content that maybe helps them through their anxiety and through times of crisis.”

GMA Members will gather in prayer led by by manager Dave Steunebrink on Thursday 6/25.
