1000 books for Burundi

6 June 2017

We are delighted to pass on this update from TWR Canada.


Good News for All and Jesus is the Answer are weekly programmes 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 programmes are among the most popular in Burundi and are critical to TWR Burundi, playing a great role in helping that ministry grow.

Listeners were calling in looking for information on how to grow deeper in their faith. They were asking difficult questions hoping their faith would provide answers to problems like racial tension, corruption, economic instability, and political upheaval.

TWR Canada sponsored the translation and printing of two books that were to be given to listeners to help deepen their faith: Your Quest for God and Food For Faith.

TWR teams in Burundi have distributed almost 1000 copies of these books to listeners. Our team on the ground will continue to distribute these books as supplies last throughout 2017.

The woman standing in the middle of the photo below received a copy of Your Quest For God and had this to say:

“I am feeling I want to read all of it in one day. It is my first time to get a book like this and I am so happy for that. I believe it will lead my spiritual paths. May the Lord richly bless TWR Burundi and its sponsors for bringing to us this wonderful gift.”
