500 years ago Martin Luther and the created a movement which continues to this day. One of his most important achievements is the translation of the Bible. Everyone should be able to understand the Holy Scriptures in his native language.

I like to thank Barbara Manterfeld-Wormit and Holger Bentele for their contributions to the television service.

We create non-verbal pieces for all occasions. We need the topic and the message to be conveyed. Write me the basic data in a mail or call me, so we can talk about the possibilities.
