I bought the books and distributed them to other leaders with the hope that they read God’s Word daily. Many of them found the book very helpful and motivating..as you know, many people have various issues faced in life. This book touches many different areas of life which I am thankful to the Lord for!

I gave 4 copies to four Church leaders. Each of the leaders found the book very interesting and motivating. One of the leaders commented that they have been missing out all the good things that are in the book..
I can see the spiritual growth, motivation and determination of each of them.
But for me as a pastor, the book has really helped me. It has motivated and inspired my devotional prayer life and keep me on course. What more can I say..thank God for the book.

I came to know The Word for Today devotional when I was in Bible college at Surkhet. So for 3 years, I am regularly reading this devotional book.
This is so interesting to read every day with a different topic and it’s easy to understand and short. This really helps us to grow our spiritual life and helps me to prepare the Word of God in my sermons.
I am really thankful to Message of Hope Nepal for your contribution to serve through this kind of ministry. I knew that you send us this book to Humla as well. My place is very underdeveloped. there are no proper transport facilities. I am happy that Message of Hope Nepal is able to send books to the Hope Church in Humla. We will be praying for you.

I accepted Jesus as my Savior when I was around the age of 65. Now I am 81 years old. I can’t read the Bible but when I came to familiar with the uses of mobile, I learned to operate FM.
While tuning the channel I stuck listening to Good News FM there I heard Dr. Simon Pandey was sharing a word of God. From that day I regularly listening to the word of God every Saturday at 7 pm.
Due to this pandemic, I am not able to go to church and hear sermons from church. These programs help me to know more about God’s love and his kindness.

Thelly Pandwall is a volunteer broadcaster who in December 2019 fell ill and had a stroke. She went to Indonesia for treatment. When she left for Indonesia she could only sit in a wheelchair and was assisted by those closest to her.
At that time she could not take care of herself and always relied on others. After more than a year of treatment and therapy she was finally able to take care of herself.
Because the teams in Australia and Dili always prayed so that her health began to return to good and now she can walk on her own and take care of herself. And in mid-November 2021 she returned to Dili and she participated in Radio Voz’s birthday celebration and starting Saturday, December 4, 2021, she returned to broadcast on air on Radio Voz.
Mrs. Agripina is an avid listener of radio but it was the first time she visited Radio Voz in early October. She came to pick up a few books of The Word for Today for her family.While she was visiting us she suggested that if possible, The Word for Today was made into a book in the Tetum or Indonesian language.
Well, we have good news! UCB Timor- Leste are currently arranging to get a limited number of copies of The Word for Today in the Indonesian language printed with a special cover for Radio Voz.
2022 is the first year that The Word for Today will be available in Indonesia for many years. This new partnership with JAPPRI and UCB Asia Pacific will see the book version launched in the local language with an initial print run of 20,000 copies.
Just letting you know of a testimony of a lady I met up with again on the road yesterday morning. She looked very happy and excited…
This lady had gone through a very tough and rough time for a very long time. She shared a number of things (experiences) but this is one that I clearly picked up yesterday and I quote…
“When I read the book each day, I felt as if those words are written specifically for me. The words and the Scripture references speak directly to my situation and needs. They lift up my spirit and motivated my life each day. They empowered my prayer life and I feel like sharing Christ to anyone I meet.
Many work colleagues at the hospital really like the book. We have prayer & fellowship time twice a week at the hospital’s Conference Room. We also take some of our time ministering to the sick people at different wards. We really want to use this devotional book in our prayer & fellowship time at the hospital…”
This lady is now strongly connected to a Church and is beginning to get actively involved in small outreaches, missions and prayer activities.

Mrs. Albertinha, is very grateful and feeling blessed by the delivery of God’s Word and prayers from Radio Voz for her. So many changes in her life. She used to be sickly but has slowly recovered.
Rommy is a listener who has not yet accepted Jesus as the Lord but he feels that what we convey on Radio Voz is very appropriate and completely contradicts the customs of Timor Leste.
He called Radio Voz, and he was so excited to hear the truth of God’s Word. And influence his family and friends who like to follow the traditions that are misleading but are considered right to believe the truth of God’s Word.
He has not been able to let go of tradition and has not been able to accept Jesus as his personal Lord and Savior.
Let us pray for this man so that he can make a definite decision to accept the Lord Jesus as his personal Lord and Savior.
In July Radio Voz received a welcome visit from two listeners. Melly and Fina witnessed to how God changed their lives as they listened to Radio Voz. They have both just come to know and accept Jesus and their Lord and Saviour. They came to thank the team because they got to know Jesus through listening to Radio Voz and because Radio Voz is the medium that accompanies their daily life.
Mrs. Melly also testified about the healing she was experiencing at this time. She could only clearly see about 1 metre so she wanted to have surgery on her eyes. She asked for prayer. Thanks to this prayer, her eyesight returned to normal. She was incredibly grateful
They also needed a Bible and by chance we had a Bible in Tetun we could give her.
They also bless Radio with the few blessings they have.
In 2020 Amali asked that they could have children, because for several years they had not been blessed with children. They had tried various things including going to traditional healers, going to traditional houses to ask for children and performing world rituals to have children. All without success.
He submitted a request via SMS to the Voz Crista program hosted by Rio. Rio and Amali prayed together. As a result, after 3 months his wife began to show signs of a pregnancy, and now the wife is nearing giving birth, so she feels grateful.
Amali was very grateful and thanked Radio Voz and the Voz Crista program. Thankful that his wife was able to give birth smoothly.
In this lockdown, I received this book from one of my brother.
I was searching for this type of book for a long time I am so happy when I found this book. This daily devotional book helps me to know more about the lord and reflect on myself. It is written in a very simple way so this is very easy for me to understand. I am so blessed by this book.
Thank you so much Message of Hope Nepal team for this wonderful devotional book. I pray to God to continue this type of ministry all over the nation.

I am a regular reader of ‘The Word for Today‘.
This devotion book is very interesting for people like us. Its simplicity is the major part which attracts more people towards it. I have started reading this book for the last few years from that day I never missed it. I am very much blessed to read this every morning and love to share with my church’s member and family members.
This book has become one of the supporters of our ministry as well. Similarly, this daily devotion helped members to grow more and more towards his presence. We are thankful for this ministry family.

I’m regularly hearing The Word for Today from Facebook. I am really blessed that it covers up very practical everyday issues from a Biblical perspective. It is very simple and easy to understand so I am using this book in my ministry as well to encourage believers.
The day I started hearing that I was really blessed like it has been now daily routine to start my day from God Words. It also helps me to share God’s Word when I’m preaching and it also helps me to encourage my selves. I’m grateful to the team MOH Nepal who just doing great works.
Again, Thank Message of Hope Nepal who always helped me in my spiritual journey.
Recently Pastor of the GPWC, Pastor Abraham Living Taning, entered the COVID-19 isolation room critically.
Radio Voz was told about this need and we were asked to pray.
Pastor Abraham Living is a pastor who is good friend of Radio Voz. Praise God after being prayed for from afar with all the GPWC congregation a week later his health condition gradually improved and is now recovering.
Radio Voz received more positive reactions from listeners. Especially to the Sunday morning service which we broadcast live from the Church during Timor-Leste’s lockdown.
It is evident from the many listeners who called in reacting that they were blessed with connecting to the live broadcast convention.
I am happy to write here that I have reading this devotion book edition, The Word for Today from the month of March to April, 2021. It has really encouraging me. I happened to pick this edition 2020 from someone in our house, who placed it unattended and without reading it. But I took it for just an interest of local cover page.
After reading through, I now took it with me a help to my daily devotion, using what you have written in. I am really blessed with the word.
I am in support of your work and will support the work of the master soon.
Can I access other articles?

I am grateful to Message of Hope Nepal for this wonderful media ministry. I really enjoying and blessed to read ‘The Word for Today’ every day.
This devotional book becomes one of the sources of encouragement in my life. I am a student so I don’t have much time to prepare the Word of God but from this devotional book, I encourage Christian youth in my circle. I belong to the Chaudhary community where fewer people are educated so the audio version of the daily devotional helps much to listen to all age groups in my community. So, every morning I share
YouTube links to my circle. I really thank you and pray to God for this ministry for sustainability.
A person from Rennel called on the phone yesterday and expressed his joy and excitement about TWFT.

Thanks to your generosity all 40 staff and students at Seghe Theological Seminary of the United Church in the Solomon Islands were each able to receive a copy of The Word for Today.
Armstrong Pitakagi, College Principal and Moderator elect of the United Church said they were “Wonderful books. Enriching our spiritualities”.
Our family was a Christian family and still learning to walk in Christian life but I don’t remember my dad praying and leading us in prayer.
When our church provided us The Word for Today daily devotion we slowly started to pray together. That’s was the time when my two brothers went abroad for a job. My mom, me and dad started to read daily devotion daily and pray together.
Before my dad was unable to pray by closing eyes and weak in spirit and after we started to feed on devotional message day by day change have been started and after a year of this devotion and fellowship my dad have been able to share his Becoming Christian Testimony.
On last month it was a great fruit of walking together with word of God. This devotion inspired me never to give up on whether I am sad, stressed, and unwilling to pray I used to read daily devotion with my family. which helps me to overcome those things and help them to grow more in God’s faithfulness. ‘’Never stop feeding on God’s Word you will rip the fruit’’
It took 35 year for my dad to stand before church. It’s never late to grow in God. Thank you, Message of Hope Nepal team, for this wonderful daily devotional Book ‘The Word for Today ‘for the nutritious Word of God for daily feeding.

It’s me Anish Magar all the away from Dolakha, Nepal.
I used to go and do fellowship in Ashim Church, Bhaktapur.
First of all, I would like to give thanks to my friend Dirgha to share about this devotional book. After that time, I’m reading The Word for Today since 2 years and it taught me so many spiritual lessons. When I went to do house fellowship in my village, I use to share preaching from this devotional book.
Personally, I’m blessed to have this The Word for Today in my life. Sometimes, it’s hard to read Bible because of our busy schedule but we can hear The Word for Today from YouTube which is provided by Message of Hope Nepal team.
Thank you MOHN team for giving us such a wonderful gift.
I’m doing fellowship in Emmanuel Ecclesia Church as a youth leader. I have started hearing The Word for Today when I was in Grade 12th. Now, it’s been a long time I’m continuously listening and reading The Word for Today in my daily morning devotion with my family members. I’m also using The Word for Today in my youth fellowship to teach other young people.
I’m so blessed to have this devotional book in my life. This devotional book helps me a lot in my hard time and also helps to grow spiritually. I’m really grateful to the team MOH Nepal.

I would like to illustrate the way God uses Medialight’s holistic spirituality/media training with a recent development in the Philippines. Our parent non-profit Emerge Missions, funds a 10,000 child outreach to the poorest of Manila’s squatter communities on the Southside of town. Lockdowns have prevented the ministry from actually meeting with the kids all year. They were allowed to deliver life-sustaining food, but not to meet for discipleship, bible study, prayer or leadership development. The ministry is built on kids mentoring other kids younger than themselves so the strict lockdown mandates have become a major problem to the ministry.
Two years ago, we took one of their workers, Victor Luciano, to Medialight for training. A few months ago, in Manila, he met with the other kids to decide how to tackle the problems being created by the lockdown requirements and they decided to launch an hour long TV show for Kids on Facebook! Visit their page here
I think they have done an amazing job with just a green screen, entry-level DSLR camera and a laptop! The actors and show hosts are all kids from the barrio with no previous training. Victor has taken his Medialight training and multiplied it by raising up a production team of kids to teach the Bible, cast a vision of a blessed life, and call barrio kids to repentance. It’s one of the most inspiring things to happen in a long time, but its indicative of what many of our grads do after school.
I want to thank you on behalf of the 40 nations into which UCB Asia Pacific has sown trained leaders by supporting the onward development of Medialight as a regional training centre, churning out new leaders for the church as it faces the digital age.
I have started to read The Word for Today since 2020 and it helps me a lot in my daily life maintain and it supports my well being.
The Word for Today was distributed with food rations with the help of one of UCB Fiji’s committee members (Amani Waqetia) who heads the response effort of OLA FOU Fiji in Vanua Levu. The families who received them were very appreciative especially after being devastated by the Cat 5 cyclone which left many of them without food and shelter. In the midst of such a devastating experience, their hope lies not only in the relief items but more-so with God and the encouragement that comes with the stories of hope in The Word for Today. More than 100 copies of the The Word for Today were given to people in Cyclone and flood affected areas of Vanua Levu.
In Suva, a Methodist church minister distributed 2 cartons of the devotional to his congregation. Before that, the books were prayed over and delivered under the guidance of our team. He also distributed some to taxi drivers servicing the greater Suva area.
Feedback I received is that some families are now using The Word for Today as their guide during the daily family devotion and is very simple and easy to understand.
Our friends who were recipients of the The Word for Today in Vanua Levu said that the booklet has given them a sense of hope and courage reading God’s Word in the most difficult time of their life after the hardship faced and the devastation cost by TC Yasa where they seem to have lost everything.
Please continue to pray for our nation, its leaders and the many people affected by the natural disaster.
Thank you and kind regards.
Mrs Augusta lives in the village of Deleso, in the District of Ermera.
In November 2020 her oldest son Álvaro contacted Radio Voz during our daily Morning Prayer program, requesting prayers for his mother who have been evil spirit oppressed for a couple of years already. She even got lost in the jungle, and even though the family looked for her, they were not able to find her for three months. The situation became much worse during the full moon season.
In addition to that, the people in the village started to see her as the one who attracts all kinds of evils to the whole community in the village, and they started to persecute the family. Even in the school, when a student got sick or had an accident, the students blamed the two daughters who were also students at that school. The family was facing a really difficult time.
The oldest son Álvaro decided to bring his mother to the capital Dili. It was when he contacted Radio Voz early in the morning asking for help in prayer. We prayed for her and for the safety of the entire family. Some days later he came to meet with the Radio Voz team because the family situation was unbearable.
We prayed together and ministered the Word of God to him and demanded from him that he should bring his entire family to Christ, in order for the entire family to get delivered. The next Thursday evening service he brought his mother to the church to receive prayers. After that day on she got completely free from the evil spirits oppression, and until now, four months later, there have been no more manifestations of oppression in her life, even during full moon season.
Then Álvaro brought his brother and the two teenage sisters who all accepted Jesus, and were baptized in the first Saturday of February.
They are all attending every service in the church, happy for what the Lord had done in their family. Now, for safety reason, only the father remained in the village, to take care of the house and land, while the mother and the two sons are in Dili, and the two girls in Aileu, living in our church there.
In Suva, a Methodist church minister distributed 2 cartons of The Word for Today to his congregation.
Before being given out, the books were prayed over and delivered under the guidance of our team. He also distributed some to taxi drivers servicing the greater Suva area, pictured here.
Families in Vanua Levu had received their copies of The Word for Today.

Virna is a longtime listener. She sent a thank you message because through Radio Voz she and her family often heard the Radio and the introduction of Jesus increasingly led them to the decision of accepting Jesus. They are now worshipping in the GPWC church. They’ve been listening to the Radio Voz since 2014.
She was very grateful that every topic presented by our station always touches their lives.

A listener and my friend CIMA Kaiwa from Baucau visited Dili for a week.
I (Rio) offered her to listen to Radio Voz. After hearing Radio Voz on the Program Voz Christa and she felt very blessed and she requested to meet with the purpose of hearing the Word of God and to be prayed for.
In the text message sent, she felt blessed and she wanted to keep listening to Radio Voz. After we prayed for a few days, later she returned to Baucau. I advised her to attend a church service at the IEVCTL church in Baucau city. Let us pray for her seriousness to know the truth of God’s Word.
Back in June Amali called Radio Voz and asked for prayer so he and his wife could have children because they had been married for a long time but had not been blessed with children. Therefore he asked to be prayed for, and we prayed for him regularly.
In November when we had a meeting between announcers and listeners in the park. Amali came and thanked our Radio Voz team with tears. He happily reported that his wife was pregnant and had been three months.
At Radio Voz’s 17th birthday yesterday we invited him to participate and we shared the happy news he received from God to the congregation and to other listeners.
Radio Voz is name of UCB Timor-Leste's radio station based in Dili. Aside from the high powered station serving the people of Dili they also operate small stations in each provincial capital of Timor-Leste.

Pictured is one of Laif FM listener’s from Kubalia in the East Sepik Province of PNG. He shared his testimony on how he got saved through listening to 98.3, Laif FM.
He was in prison in 2000 for rascal activities and being involved in some hold ups. He was on the run from the law enforcement for many years and was even on the shoot-to-kill list. Then, he landed up with Pastor Abraham Kumbia & his wife Anna. Pastor Abraham took him to Mr Kasieang the PSE at that time. The PSE was very angry but Pastor Kumbia & wife Anna covered told the PSE, “You didn’t find him, we found him and brought him to you… he will be under our custody”.
Now… what happened next?
He got changed, accepted the Pastor’s advise but didn’t attend a church. He was tuning his radio one day and suddenly, heard Gospel music, and later, heard a voice on the radio. Then he heard the Word of God, “wow” he said…. I think this is my “Church” coz this Christian radio is talking to me, encouraging me with the Word of God. Inspirational programs all throughout the day, with the Word of God. This is my FM station cause I got saved and love all the programs. I am a die hard fan for this Christian radio 98.3 Laif FM
He is now attached to the New Apostolic Church as an evangelist in his community.
He appeals to those on the run from law enforcement, please stop what you are doing, surrender for change and become a true citizen for your community, district, province, country and ambassador for Christ.

Since one year I’m the regular listener of Message of Hope Nepal. In which day I heard about Message of Hope Nepal, from that day I use to listen “The Word for Today” which is broadcast from YouTube and Nepal Television every Saturday morning. From this program I’m able to know more about Him love, power, blessing etc.
The explanation of Bible verse is presented in different way, which makes me to understand easily. I also found that this “The Word for Today” is very practical in our life. That’s why I also share about this program to my family members, friends, church members. Thank you God for this opportunities, I’m so blessed by this program.
Firstly, I personally would like to thank my heavenly Father for His divine wisdom and provision to use this media in order to multiply or extended the Kingdom of God through His precious Word and devotional message. I so blessed to have it and hear it daily. Personally it helped me a lot to draw close to Lord and build up my spiritual growth and relationship with Him.
His Word empowers and energies me and give me a new insight and hope everyday. MOH Nepal has developed my daily devotional plan and helped me a lot to be near with the Lord.
Thanks to entire team of MOH Nepal keep going, keep multiplying for Glory of GOD. Thank you !
