We would like you to join our TWR family in West Africa and help us keep broadcasting God's Word and love in West Africa.

The 400-acre transmitter site has diesel generators, antennas, vehicles, tractors, and other machinery which need oversight, along with the buildings. We look forward to hearing from you!
