Following the devastating impact of Super Typhoon Mawar, which is considered the most powerful storm to strike Guam in twenty years, TWR’s dedicated staff members are making relentless efforts to restore broadcasting capabilities for KTWR.

On May 24, Mawar unleashed its fury on the Western Pacific island, bringing sustained winds of 140 mph and leaving behind a trail of extensive destruction. As a result, TWR’s shortwave station faced significant damage, impeding the transmission of gospel programs to regions including China, North Korea, Indonesia, and other parts of Asia.

KTWR Station Director Grant Hodgins reports that efforts to patch up curtain antenna No. 2 are believed to be complete. That means Antenna 2 could return to the airwaves within the next couple of days. 

New music from Fair Trade artist and songwriter Micah Tyler impacts radio today. “Praise The Lord,” is the second song from his latest project, People Like Us.

“My new song ‘Praise the Lord’ may seem a little bit simple, but at the end of the day, it’s got depth to it,” Micah Tyler shares. “If you look back at the text in Judges chapter 20, whenever Israel would go into battle, the tribe of Judah would lead the way. Why? Because Judah means praise. Praise is how we begin our battles. We fight our battles by loving Jesus and knowing that we can trust Him no matter what. In this world, there will be trouble, but we take heart because He has overcome the world. For that, we can praise the Lord.”
