"I used to drink beer every day. I don’t remember reaching home sober. My family never saw me in a sober state. I went to bed drunk and would start drinking early in the morning. People of my village nicknamed me 'the moving grave'. But April 11, 2018 was a different day for me. As I arrived home, I was met by people who were visiting my home. Seeing the state that I was in, one of them handed me a Scripture booklet. He never spoke a word...and they left. The following day, I sat down and tried to read. The bold words on top of the booklet read “The Amazing Life of Jesus Christ”. For the first time, I felt like I was in custody. I thank God that at the end of the booklet were instructions on how to pray to God for salvation. I did as I was instructed and I received such peace in my heart. For the very first time, my family saw me in a sober state and I started reading that booklet to my family members. After a few days, I called the number that was on the back of the booklet and one of the EHC Zambia team members answered. I thank God that my family has since joined a Christ group. I was snatched from fire by the Word in this booklet."

“Hello my brothers. I’m a Baptist pastor. I was saved through a booklet and today I dedicate myself to handing out booklets to those who have not yet been saved. I have an interest in various titles that you publish. I reach about three thousand people a month. I will be grateful if you can assist me. Thank you very much. I have known "Help From Above" since 1980, when I received a copy from a dear brother in Christ. Later, I became aware of other publications and I consider them of excellent quality. I would like to help distribute them in my city.”

“I was prematurely born (seven months) into a Hindu family in June of 1966, in a small village called Wachpoo in Eastern Nepal. My mum passed away when I was one, and it was my stepmother who took care of me and brought me up. I began searching for the truth from a young age, as I never agreed with my parents’ faith—Hinduism. Although I used to strictly observe all the rites and rituals instructed by my parents, I had no genuine peace in my mind and life. I observed them offering sacrifices, partaking in all kinds of Hindu rites and festivals, but never saw any truth in those things. When I was 14 years old and still studying, I got a booklet titled Help From Above from one of my cousins who is now my pastor. After reading this little book, I was convinced that I was a sinner and acknowledged all my sins before the Lord Jesus Christ and accepted Him as my Lord and Savior. Since then, I started experiencing the genuine love of God and peace in my life. I started attending a local fellowship. However, during my early Christian walk, I faced many problems due to objections from my family members and also from the villagers. Due to these situations, it was a challenge to have a real intimate relationship with the Lord, so I left my village and came to Kathmandu where I was water baptized in 1981. Thereafter, when I became a member of the church, I also got the privilege to undergo one year of discipleship training in Kathmandu, which taught me a lot about the love and grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, which has helped me to grow in my faith. After completion of my training, I started to work with a local church in Kathmandu. I was involved in various kinds of ministries—serving in Sunday school, conducting Bible studies, and house fellowship meetings—that led to much growth of my spiritual life as a Christian. As an evangelist, while preaching and ministering with my church, I felt a burden to reach different people groups of Nepal with the Good News. I realized that it could be made possible by distributing gospel literature in different languages to these individual groups. Thus with this burden and the Lord’s leading, in 1988 I joined Gospel for Asia Nepal and got involved in the work of publications.”

“I am a Christian man, 50 years old, in Sweden. My church gives out coffee free to people in the middle of town, Uppsala, almost every weekend. At the same time, we share the gospel about Jesus Christ to people. There are many refugees who have come to Sweden from the Middle East and most them are Muslims. They are often very open to listen to the gospel. I’ve read the booklet, The Way to God, in Swedish and I thought it was very good. I met a Swedish evangelist in Stockholm this spring and we evangelized among the Muslims in a suburb. He had the booklet, The Way to God, in a few languages and I gave it to people who knew the language. I also read it in Swedish and thought it was very good, according to my faith in God. I saw the internet address at the backside of the booklet and searched it with my computer.” -Tobias E., Sweden
“I oversee ten churches in remote places, so I will distribute your booklets widely as I have ten pastors and their congregations who will share them. Each church covers one village in one month, distributing 1,000 Telugu tracks in each village. So, we need ten thousand booklets for each month. “I saw your booklet in Nellore in the hand of a pastor, so I opened your site and concluded that your ministry must be very, very, very blessed! I lift up your ministry in my prayers and will support your work by sending monthly contributions to your office in India. I am excited about your ministry. Your great literature is going to unknown villages. God bless you!”
The need in India is great. Would you like to help?
"Over 500,000 scripture booklets will soon be on their way to Honduras! They will be invading the Spanish population as well as the indigenous jungle people of the Moskitia in their Own language of Misquito. Some of the remote areas are still considered unreached people groups."

“Our family lives on the most southern point of Africa. We own a Bed and Breakfast and receive mostly guests from Europe. About 80% of them are German tourists. The rest are from France, Spain, China, and Basque (small percentage). During the past two years, we have been sharing your booklets with our guests. I like the compact size of your booklets. We have had wonderful conversations about a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as well as personal testimonies from our own life. Some time ago, I was able to testify to the Commissioner of Police from Antwerpen, Belgium, and gave him and his wife some booklets. For me, it was very touching and I keep on praying for their souls.”

LOVE is all we need in order to be world changers, starting from own selves, our families, villages, communities, and country at large, simply because love changes everything it touches.
The LOVE of Christ opened a new chapter in all our lives the moment Christ paid the ultimate price on the cross for the sake of bringing us peace and freedom.
1 Peter 2:24 “He personally carried our sins in His body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right. By His wounds you are healed.” (NLT)
Wherever the LOVE of Christ touches, transformation follows!
Praise the LORD.

It has been such a blessing and an honor to serve Jesus among these people. I truly love the Cambodian people! I think back through the years when I was a young man fighting on the border of this country. Most of the time we were inside Cambodia...as there are no border lines in the jungles. If you would have told me, when I first became a Christian, that I would ever come back to such an area, where I experienced such tragedy and unspeakable hell in my life, I would have thought it crazy, but God has a way directing Our Lives in the way He sees fit. I am so glad that He has sent me back repeatedly to share the love of Jesus with these precious folks.
The other day we went to the boat people, as I have shared before, these are Muslims who live a very rough life. They live along the banks of the Mekong River. During the years I have known them, I have watched them cook, drink, bathe, and fish in the waters of the Mekong. This is a very filthy river. So much waste comes down, not only from parts of Cambodia, but from the countries in the North...mainly China. My heart has gone out to them since the first day I contacted them.
We have been trying to meet their needs and have been reaching out to them in the love of Jesus Christ. On this trip, we brought tents. At least 17 of them were for those who do not have any covering and oftentimes put up cardboard and old tarps to keep them out of the rain, harsh weather, and heat. They also serve as barriers against malaria-causing mosquitoes.
We also brought bags of rice for most of the boat people. I have seen women pulling grass out of the river bank, so they can boil it and eat it with the little fish that they catch.
I was able to share the love of Christ with them, and told each and every one of them that they were unique...and that there would never be another one of them ever in this world. I illustrated that there is but one God and we cannot decide what we want Him to be. He is God and there is no other. I shared with them that Christ came into the world to redeem them from their sins, and explained to them that they should run from any religion that makes them fear. Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life! I was so blessed to see their hearts so open! Some were reading the scriptures booklets we gave them. One woman seemed so broken as she was listening to the message. We could tell that she was weighing every thought and word that was shared.
I am excited about going back with tents, clothing, and medical supplies, but most of all...the Love of Jesus Christ. Truly Jesus will conquer their souls with His love. We are going up to the Villages where we have dug wells and set up playgrounds. We love reaching out to the Buddhist villages with our Lord's magnificent Grace.
Thanks for all your prayers, your love, and your caring. Your love is reaching beyond borders to touch these lives. He is worthy for you and I to follow wherever He may send us. Truly it is the love of Jesus that conquers their hearts.
A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. (John 13:34-35 KJV)

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
