Good News for All and Jesus is the Answer are weekly programs aired in the Kirundi language on Burundi National Radio which has a reach of more than 10 million listeners. These two TWR Canada-sponsored radio programs are among the most popular programs aired in Burundi.
Good News for All has been airing since 1993. The program consists of 30 minutes of listener greetings and encouragements being read on-air to family and friends followed by a 30-minute evangelistic sermon. Christian music is also played, as it is often requested in listener letters.
Jesus is the Answer airs weekly on Sunday afternoons, as it has since 1994. The program primarily targets youth, as it deals with topics covering their common challenges. The content comes from the testimonies of people who come to the office to share about how Jesus has been a solution to their life struggles.
The Way of Righteousness has recently begun to air in Burundi on an FM station which extends into neighbouring countries. The program consists of one hundred 15-minute programs which clearly show the existence of God. The program journeys through the writings of the prophets to show God's unalterable purpose throughout history and answers the question "How can we be righteous before God?"
“I greet you in the name of Jesus. Thank you for the testimonies that I have just heard in your program of Jesus is the Answer. I have been fighting with my carnal motives for many years, taking much time planning how to indulge in immorality. Now listening to these testimonies given by other young people like me. I understand the danger of such risky behaviors. Please pray for me to overcome in such spiritual battles.”
“I want to thank you for this program of Good News for All. The message I have heard about abiding in God’s law helped me very much. It brought me to remember how I had kept running away from God for so many years, and I regret all the time spent jeopardizing my life by indulging in sins of different kinds. Please pray for me so that God could forgive me.”
