In addition to our ministry in the villages, Ruth’s Shawl reaches Malawi in many other ways.

Media

There is very little media programming in Malawi on topics such as Bible studies and family life, marriage, parenting, etc. from a Biblical perspective.  Ruth’s Shawl has been blessed to be invited to produce both television and radio programming.  The programs have the potential to reach all of Malawi with the Gospel and sound Biblical teaching.

Television

Each week, Pastor Steve records several 30 minute segments to air on Timveni TV. The vision for the Timveni Television program is to provide an Inductive Bible Study so that anyone who views the program will be able to understand how important it is to study the Living Word of God, the Bible, so that we may have direction and answers for our everyday lives. Every Christian must “Abide in Him and in His Word” (John 15:7a) and, in accordance with 2 Timothy 3:16-17 know “That all scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete thoroughly equipped for every good work.”

A special puppet program is under way for children to teach them knowledge of The Creation and the Attributes of God through the lively dialogue of the puppets.

Radio
Family Life with Steve and Nora

Ruth’s Shawl is in the process of producing new radio programs with Timveni Radio which broadcasts throughout Malawi.  Pastor Steve will now be including an Old Testament Survey teaching along with the Living Word Program currently airing.

A women’s study through the book of Esther is in the process of being produced as “Women of the Word” to reach the women of Malawi with a verse by verse, chapter by chapter inductive bible study method.
