For over 30 years, TWR Burundi has shared a building and office space with a partner organisation, which you may be familiar with, called Scripture Union. In 2019, God began paving the way for TWR Burundi to have its own property that will significantly enhance the ministry’s ability to grow.
By God’s grace, both TWR and Scripture Union have outgrown their shared office space. In a building of their own, TWR Burundi can produce more programming for Burundi and neighbouring countries, use their facility as a training centre for believers and Christian leaders and continue to introduce the truth and hope of Jesus to Burundians and disciple them in their faith. TWR Burundi has seen the impact of their ministry for decades and their new space will allow for this impact to multiply.
In 2019, the new building was purchased and over the past year the team has continued to make the necessary renovations and improvements. This summer, the old walls were retouched, external walls for the studios built and the roof replaced all before the rainy season began in September.
Earlier in the year, a sound technician from TWR International visited TWR Burundi to assist in planning and recommendations for the new audio studio. With his recommendations, and those from a local studio technician, TWR Burundi will have an improved audio studio for recording their radio programmes, including Good News for All and Jesus is the Answer.
These two programmes as air weekly in the Kirundi language on Burundi National Radio, which has a potential reach of more than 10 million listeners. They have been on the air since 1993 and 1994 and continue to be two of the most popular programmes on the radio. We recently received these testimonies that demonstrate the impact these programmes are having on the lives of listeners across Burundi:
“Thank you for the good testimonies I heard in the programme Jesus is the Answer. Indeed, only Jesus can quench any kind of thirst and hunger in my life. This programme has really been helpful to me.”
“I am a farmer who spends a lot of time in my rice fields. I always listen to the radio as I work. Thank you very much for the programme Good News for All. This programme has touched my heart in such a way that I decided to receive the Lord Jesus as my Saviour. Please pray for me to keep firm in my faith.”
“I was really touched by the message you gave in the programme Good News for All. You continue teaching us that God is faithful to his promises. May God bless you so much.”
Join us as we praise the Lord for the ways in which he is changing lives across Burundi through these two programmes and the work of TWR. As the new office building continues to be renovated, please pray for the team as they seek to continue sharing the Gospel. We ask that God would bless the new building and see many more people come to know Him.
