Where is the Love?

Over the next thirteen weeks, we’ll look at the nature of God as love, we’ll consider how God’s love is evident in the world around us, and we’ll also discover what our loving response to God looks like. To start us off each week, we’ll turn to one of the pop songs from the last fifty years in American culture to introduce our theme for the day, contrasting the world’s message to the message of the Bible, God’s word to us.

FEEDBACK Audience Response

Connecting with the audience is a vital component of the “Wonderful Words of Life” ministry. Because of the extensive coverage of the programs, we receive feedback from listeners living throughout the USA and in countries all over the world.

On each program, the announcers invite listeners to interact by writing or calling and sharing prayer requests and testimonies of God’s blessing in their lives. Contacts have been received from listeners in most of the territories where The Salvation Army has work and from people living in many other countries where the Army has no established presence. As we read and reply to each one, we are grateful to know that God is using The Salvation Army to proclaim the Gospel of Christ around the globe with these programs. Take a look at these recent comments….


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


A friend of mine introduced me to your radio programme, Wonderful Words of Life over Radio Africa Two. The message you air is so inspiring. I want to listen all the time. Please keep on spreading the gospel – many are transformed. May the Loving Lord richly bless you and your ministry.o!


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.
