Wonderful Words of Life is very inspiring! May our dear Lord bless your mission.


We hear you on 1280 KCOB – Newton, Iowa. Thank you for your program – especially the gospel music & message.


I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed Wonderful Words of Life today!… And I want to thank you so much for being on the air. I look forward to seeing you every day on KHMO in Hannibal, Missouri.


We (Sunday Morning Gospel) have a huge listening audience and our listeners all tell us that they start their mornings each week by listening to Wonderful Words of Life on WXGI 950 AM in Richmond first. Thank you so much and I enjoy the message each week as I’m shuffling papers at the station.  God bless you!!!!


I listen to your program on shortwave radio – 4.840 mHz (transmitted from WWCR in Nashville, Tennessee)…  Although I cannot put my finger on the reason why Wonderful Words of Life draws me in, it is a refreshing island on the shortwave spectrum…  I appreciate The Salvation Army’s decision to transmit Wonderful Words of Life on shortwave.  The quality content and good words shine through immediately.


I have been listening to Wonderful Words of Life for many years on Radio Africa, and this has helped me to stay on the path to our Lord Jesus Christ. Keep up the good work, and may the Almighty continue to bless you for drawing us closer to Christ.
