These are my two friends who are former witch doctors. Nelson is on the left. He was one of the most powerful witch doctors in all of Haiti. The gentleman on the right is Pastor Dabou. He has a supernatural gift. He can ONLY read the Bible! If he tries to read anything else, he simply can’t do it. He received a second grade education, but is now a Pastor! Both of them are well known throughout Haiti and they go out and evangelize as much as possible. They will be very grateful to have Scripture booklets to distribute. Thanks so much for getting these Scripture booklets to me for this upcoming trip! -Amanda P., Haiti
“Thank you for sending me this Datebook. I read it every day. It gives me peace. I’m new to all this religious stuff and my whole life I’ve been a non-believer. But these past six months, things with my wife and I have been rough, not between each other but things and people trying to tear us apart and she’s always so positive and happy. It used to get me mad because she would always tell me to pray and have faith and I wouldn’t. But these past three months, I’ve been reading this Datebook every day and praying with an open mind. And I have to admit things really have been improving and working out for us. So, safe to say, my faith has been growing. Thank you for this booklet.” -Tommy P., Texas, U.S.A.
“Just wanted to share something with you. The coloring books and booklets arrived safely. Yesterday afternoon (Sunday) we had a large outreach in the inner city of Cincinnati. We provided clothing, hot meals, games, and treats for the children, and personal supplies for the adults and children. We distributed Bibles, your coloring books and booklets, had worship services, and a lot of personal one-on-one prayer with individuals. Your coloring books and tracks are being used with great reception. Our crowds yesterday were homeless, drug and alcohol addicted, prostitutes, gang members, and other marginalized people. Many decisions were made and many tears shed. Thanks for helping us."

“One day I was walking on the sand and a man gave me some booklets. I was on my way to do a bad thing but when I read this booklet, it changed my mind totally! There are some people in my community who do not know about Christ, so they always take their problems to native doctors. I know, by the help of this booklet, they will start to know how Christ can help.” -Enoch T., Ghana
“We are an evangelism ministry located on the boardwalk in Wildwood, (the Jersey shore), with a full-time summer staff of 30. We’ve been developing a ministry to dozens of Muslim internationals from Egypt who work on the boardwalk. We hold a weekly dinner for them throughout the summer, which has provided a context for developing a friendship and sharing the gospel. We will be giving these booklets to them. I learned about WMP from a friend who sent me a booklet and recommended you as a resource for our outreach to the Muslims in Wildwood.” -Christopher B., New Jersey
“For over thirteen years I have treasured these little Datebooks! I misplaced 2005-2007, or lost them, but I have 2008-2017. I write a prayer every morning on each day. I have gone back and read them and saw how God had answered by prayers and how quickly. I even went to our church and witnessed and showed the entire church how I had prayed on one day and how God had answered my prayers in two or three days. When people saw this little book in my hands, they would say, ‘Richard must have something to witness about! He brought his little prayer book!’ I just wanted to share how this little Datebook has influenced so many people over the years at this unit. I have all the issues, kept safely in my locker that not only have God’s Word in them, but hundreds of answered prayers. When I get out, I will take them to my home church and share or witness about them to our own congregation. Thanks for the blessings! I cherish every one. God bless you.” Richard M., Texas
“On our journey toward Tete, we used a small bush road hardly, if ever, used by any vehicle. I thought to myself: ‘Lord, how are we ever going to get to the main road with this kind of road?’ As we were traveling through mountainous terrain, we had to cross over about 12 dried-up river beds, some so narrow and steep that I wondered if the truck would get stuck right in the cleft. We had to cross over three very large, dry, sandy riverbeds. In this journey we again felt the Lord’s hand of protection so strongly, knowing that all of this is for His gospel to reach the uttermost parts. Courage welled up in us and on we went. It was late afternoon when we reached a small village—Zenga-Zenga. We found the village chief and asked if we could stay there for the night. Yes, no problem. Wherever we went and wherever we stopped, we always distributed the World Missionary Press Scripture booklets. In this way we planted four new churches. Out there in the bush that is probably the only Scriptures that they have ever received. As I walked with some of the ladies to the river to draw our water, I stopped at the river bank. The ladies climbed down the steep cleft to carry the water back up this steep cliff. As I was waiting for them, a young boy, maybe 10 years of age, came with his bike and water jug to draw his water. As he saw me, he jumped off his bike in fear, left it beside the path and started running back home. He acted as if he had never seen a white person before. I called to him in Portuguese not to be afraid, that I was a friend and that I loved children. He stopped, listened, and then slowly and carefully came toward me, took his water jug, and proceeded to the river. As he returned from the river, we asked him why he was so afraid. He explained that he had never seen a white person. We assured him that all was well. Unfortunately I had no Scripture booklets in Masena with me at that moment. We just exchanged a few words, and he then quickly got on his bike. We ladies walked back together, each of us carrying our water jugs on our head. . . . The chief wanted us to plant a Mountain of Praise church right there at Zenga-Zenga and said his children would be the first to help evangelize in that area. We left two boxes of Scripture booklets, assured that the Word of God had entered there. In remote places like these, where there are no Bibles, no Christian broadcasts, few or no churches, we are so thankful that we have these Scripture booklets as the only source of the Word of God for these dear people. Every time as people read these Scripture booklets, thousands of seeds are planted. I am always encouraged and strengthened by the words that the Lord says in Isaiah 55:11: ‘. . . So is my word that goes out from my mouth: it will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.’ Frequently in Africa it happens that when a chief gets saved, the whole village gets saved. We will find out next time we visit there. It was a great experience and worth every effort and every precarious moment.”

"I was a Muslim. I found a Satan Versus CHRIST booklet in May of this year (2015). When I read it, I found Christianity is the perfect way to go for everyone on earth. In August I decided to write to you for more booklets so as to help myself [learn]. At the moment, I just want to read all the booklets, one by one, and know more about God."
Zach S., South Africa
“During our MTC (Mobile Training Centre) program in Dowa, we had the opportunity to conduct outreaches in the afternoon. We encouraged the participants to go out two-by-two to the surrounding villages. The results were overwhelming: 4,246 homes were reached, and we were helped by 63 volunteers from churches in the area. The victory in this outreach was the number of people who were reached; 691 positive responses to the gospel were recorded during this outreach.”

“We are on furlough from Costa Rica. I came across a few hundred of these booklets in a closet in our camp in Costa Rica. I read through a booklet and loved how it presented the Gospel. We used these booklets in our ministry—evangelism and medical outreach. It was amazing to see God work. We had distributed over 400 booklets to the people of Costa Rica and refugees and saw in a year over 200 people making decisions for Christ."
