Born and raised in Alberta, Canada, both Nathan and Megan Dunlop now find themselves on the other side of the world serving with TWR in South Africa. Although Africa was not their first choice of destinations, the Dunlops decided to take the step of faith in making the move. The verse Joshua 1:9 kept showing up in perceivably “random” ways, like on the wrist of the nurse who administered their vaccinations. This gave them comfort and confidence in their decision to follow where they felt the Lord was calling them...
United in their love for Africa
Staff Story: The Kimbers
TWR is thrilled to have a seasoned missionary couple, Graham and Jean Kimber, and their two young daughters, Jessica (6) and Bernice (4) join the TWR team in Swaziland.
"We were very encouraged at the way the Lord prepared the way for us to work with TWR," says Graham.
Missions work has been a theme in their lives since their love story began. They first met in the early 1990s when they were both working as missionaries in the Seychelles, and they later married in 2006.
Providing Ministry Opportunities for Students
It's the Summer Holidays! This is something that University students always look forward to. However, for some students, they want to use this 'free time' to exercise their skills in the field of their relevant studies, but not just anywhere. They want to use what they have learnt in the Missions Field to serve God. TWR provides an internship program that gives students, who are at least two years into University, an opportunity to work according to their field of studies in various regions around the world. While out in the field, they'll get to work on various projects with a Mentor who will also be their Father/Mother figure while away from home.

Staff Story: Creatively & Diligently Serving God Together
David and Flora Rittenhouse are a powerful yet humble husband and wife team that have been working as missionaries with TWR for over three decades. David has served with TWR Africa since 2005 in various roles, most notably as TWR Africa’s accountant and Zimbabwe Ministry Director for several years. Flora served the region first as Communications Coordinator and in recent years as Project Hannah assistant. She also used her skills of writing and photography where opportunities arose.
After having served in the Africa region for eight years, the Rittenhouses are relocating to serve at TWR’s International Corporate Offices later this month. We asked colleagues who worked with them closely, to share about the David and Flora’s life and work in Africa.
