Natalie Flasskamp Joins TWR-SA
We thank the Lord that after a period of three years of looking out for the right person to take over ERF's ministry from Rudolf Kabutz, the Lord has provided a special lady with the name of Natalie Flasskamp. She is now officially the new facilitator for TWR-SA's German ministry, ERF-Medien SA.

For many years our German devotional programme has been broadcast nationwide over various radio stations. Many listeners have grown in their faith and experienced the Lord’s wisdom and guidance through the programmes.

The ministry of TWR in Burundi has extended its reach geographically, through technology and by adding new programmes.
The ministry is now reaching some areas in the east of the DRC. TWR-Burundi has recently entered into a partnership with a community radio station in Lemera, a town situated about 100 km from Bujumbura, the capital of Burundi. The station has the potential of reaching at least 100 000 listeners. TWR’s programmes now airing on that station are Thru the Bible (TTB) in French and Kiswahili, as well as Women of Hope in Kiswahili.
Two Very Special Programmes
Good News for All,
The programme Good News for All has been on air since TWR launched its services in this East African nation in 1998. Reaching all corners of Burundi, even across the borders to neighbouring countries, its listeners include both young and old, male and female.
