We want to give a warm welcome to the new CEO of The Word for the World International, Kobus van As wegan (on left of photo). He took this position from the 1st of July 2020. He will be leading the organisation in terms of its vision and strategy for completing 500 full Bibles by 2050.

Kobus and his wife, Janet, are experienced in Bible translation and literacy. They spearheaded our work in Ethiopia, which now has 26 projects, and in SE Asia, which currently has 53 projects. We have full confidence that God will continue to use Kobus and Janet in this new role. Pray with us for God’s anointing and blessing for their work.

We salute Dr Veroni Kruger (on right of photo) who has handed the leadership of TWFTW to Kobus. Veroni Kruger established TWFTW in South Africa in 1981. He has served God faithfully in his vision of building TWFTW as a recognised Bible translation agency. The work has grown exponentially under his leadership and TWFTW currently has 136 Bible translation projects worldwide.  Veroni and his wife, Martie, continue to serve TWFTW in many profound ways in the translation and promotions departments respectively. Thank God with us for their faithful service, and ongoing involvement.
Kobus and Veroni
