We pray that God will bless you in this new year of opportunities to serve our Lord.
Our commitment to deliver the gospel around the world remains as strong as ever. One example of that ongoing commitment is our ministry into the African country of Burundi. This small country is deeply scarred by oppression, drought, ethnic divisions, food shortages, lack of medical care, and conflict. Among the poorest countries in the world, Burundi struggles to face these challenges with limited natural resources. TWR Canada produces two weekly radio programs aired in KiRundi, the peoples' "heart" language, which reaches all of Burundi as well as people in some parts of Rwanda, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Tanzania. Jesus is the Answer is one of those broadcasts.
Jesus is the Answer airs every Sunday on Burundi National Radio sharing the gospel and glorifying the work of the Lord Jesus in the lives of its East African listeners. This program has contributed to the salvation of many people. The unique aspect of this program is listeners calling in to share their testimonies and encourage each other to be thankful for God's work in their lives.
The program appeals to listeners of all ages, but youth are the most frequent callers. The program shares scriptures with listeners dealing with salvation, discipleship, prayer, healing, deliverance, Christian dating, high school friendships, and important Christian calendar events such as Easter and Christmas.
We wanted to share with you one listener's testimony of how much the program has blessed him:
"I am Gerard Teba, living at Mugara in the western part of Burundi. I call to thank you for the progamme of Jesus Is the Answer. As I have listened to it many times, I am more and more conscious that I have many things to testify about. All the things in which I live are from God's grace and are normally subjects of praise to God."
We are thankful for all the good being done through this ministry, but recognize there's a lot of work ahead to fulfill the vision for it. Please pray with us to increase the reach of this program as so many more still need the love and salvation of Christ. Pray that staff members will know God's provision for their lives and ministry.
