Holly Beech (a graduate of Southside Christian School) began working with Trans World Radio (TWR) in 1997 during her studies at the Moody Bible Institute. That same year, Andrew Haas joined Campus Crusade for Christ (Cru) and began traveling as part of The JESUS Film Project. They met in 2006 during an Africa partnership project. Andrew soon moved to Johannesburg, South Africa, married Holly in 2008, and left Cru to join TWR. After serving together in Africa nine years, God called Andrew to a video position at TWR headquarters in North Carolina. He serves unreached oral people groups by helping deliver God's Word electronically through video. More and more bibleless people groups have access to smartphones allowing TWR to deliver series of short bible story films designed to facilitate discipleship and church planting through social media.
Way to Pray: Since 2019, Andrew has been producing Trans World Radio’s internal monthly videos. TWR missionaries and staff around the world say it’s never been better. He appreciates your prayers over the next five months as he trains up three newer staff and hands this series off to them. In January 2021, he’ll be able to manage TWR MOTION’s translation projects full-time.
July 2020, MOTION delivered a pilot for the new and improved PALM training curriculum (twrmotion.org/palm). They pray everything is finished in 2021.
Meanwhile, Holly continues to oversee missions at our local church in Raleigh. In 2020 she also took up the post of operations director in a stressful season as the church moved to a new building during the coronavirus lockdown.
