The Lamberts are missionaries to the TWR (Trans World Radio) station in Swaziland, Africa. From that station, TWR broadcasts the gospel out over a vast region across central and southern Africa that includes countries like Sudan, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Somalia, Nigeria, and others where Christians are severely persecuted. Throughout the broadcast region, there are many who are illiterate and remote, making radio one of the only ways to reach them.
Mike serves as a transmitter engineer. His primary focus is to maintain, troubleshoot, and optimize the three high-powered shortwave transmitters along with one 100kW AM transmitter. Additional duties include broadcast operations, station projects, and assisting TWR’s national partner with the upkeep of multiple FM stations across the country. Without engineers to send these programs out, the words of hope can’t reach the millions of people across Africa.
Wendy’s primary responsibility is to homeschool their three wonderful (and energetic) boys: Zachary, Maxwell, and Jackson. There will be many opportunities in Swaziland for Wendy to help at the station also. She is excited to see how she can partner with TWR Women of Hope to reach the local population. Swaziland has the highest HIV/AIDS prevalence rate of any of the countries in Africa.
Mike and Wendy both feel that Christian radio has played a large role in their spiritual growth. In fact, it was through Christian radio that Wendy first heard about the critical need TWR has for engineering staff. With how much they have been blessed by Christian radio, they are really looking forward to the opportunity to serve God’s kingdom by helping others in some of the darkest places to be blessed by it as well.
