Jungle Radio Station in Suriname

The Wayana and Trio are two tribes in Suriname that were led to the Lord by missionaries Ivan and Doris Schoen beginning in the 1960s. Through the Schoens' hard work teaching literacy and translating the Bible, nearly all the Wayana and Trio are literate and followers of Christ today with a thriving church among them.

The Schoens' son, Tom, and his wife have joined TWR as missionaries to lead a radio station project for the Wayana, who believe radio is the key to discipling their people throughout the jungle. As farmers, fishermen, and game hunters, they are going deeper in the jungle to find new sources of food and fertile fields for planting. They also want to distance themselves from outside pressures to modernize. 

Travel along rivers in the jungle is difficult, but radio is the way they want to unite, encourage, and minister to the tribes. TWR missionary Steve Shantz put it this way: “These indigenous people groups who were once unreached are taking the gospel to neighboring tribes and villages. That is our dream in missions, and that’s what the Wayana are doing.” Will you help TWR build a radio station in the jungle of Suriname?
