Papiamentu Programs

Our 100 kw AM transmitter can heard from Florida and the Bahamas in the north down to the middle of Brazil in the South. We broadcast daily Bible teaching programming in the English, Spanish, Portuguese, and Haitian Creole. We also have a weekend program in Baniua and in Macuxi, the languages of large indigenous groups living in the Amazon basin.

In addition to our international broadcasting, we present programming in English, Spanish, Dutch, and Papiamentu (the language here on the ABC islands) on a FM transmitter.

A group of women from Bonaire collaborate on a program for women. I mentioned this project a couple times about a year ago. You can search on Project Hanna to see those posts. We also air Bible studies by a couple of pastors located in Curacao and Aruba.

We have Papiamentu, English, and Spanish programming for kids each afternoon. Our newest kids program, Chikitin Pa Hesus, is being created by Richandro, the very talented and very dedicated young man pictured below.

In addition to doing his regular weekly program, Laso Direkto Ku Hesus, on TWR, and working with some friends on a successful youth program aired on a popular secular station, Richandro has been working with us on a number of projects as a summer intern of sorts, after having graduated from MAVO in the local high school this past May. He is now beginning the rigorous HAVO school program.Posted by Picasa
