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 want to tell you how I appreciate The Way of Righteousness programs. Today I know and understand that righteousness is only seen in Jesus Christ. Today I know that there is no other name that gives us salvation than the name of Jesus Christ. May the Lord bless you richly. Amen!"
"I have just listened to your powerful message in this program of Good News for All and I was really touched. I have repented in my heart. One remaining problem for me is that I cannot have anybody to talk to, because I am in custody and I am alone."
- Pray for wisdom and protection for the production team, as they produce relevant and helpful programs.
- Pray for the people of Burundi, who face a high level of poverty.
- Praise God that these programs are impacting people and creating change in their lives.
