Servants of The Word

The Prophetess Anna by Rembrandt Harmensz. van Rijn

The Prophetess Anna by Rembrandt Harmensz. van Rijn

“…to know the Lord and to make Him known to all people, and to give them the message that God speaks their language, loves them, and has not forgotten them.”

This is the bottom line of what The Word for the World strives for in the words of Dalene Breytenbach, the author of Servants of the Word. Dalene came to TWFTW in 1996 after a lifetime spent in journalism. She proved to be an avid supporter of Bible translation and a dedicated co-worker.

Dalene, who sadly passed away in 2012, was determined despite several health issues to complete Servants of the Word, which is an account of the first 30 years of TWFTW’s existence as seen from her perspective. She always said that everything she had ever done throughout her life was only preparation to work with The Word for the World, and she continued her work right up to the end of her life.

This book is written specifically about the development of TWFTW, but really, it is a story that we are all part of—the story of the people of God working towards the goal of all nations hearing about Christ and having a relationship with Him. We hope that you will find it informative, thought provoking, and most of all, inspiring! It is available at the following links:
