“Three co-workers and I ministered in three provinces. In desolate areas we saw schools with 6 students and in central areas up to 920 students. We had many road problems, but the protection and blessings of the Lord were many more. We visited 396 schools with 74,000 students and 3800 teachers, and we gave 460 Bible courses and 156 New Testaments. We distributed 94,000 The Way to God booklets. By all this, 5,800 persons decided to accept Jesus Christ as Savior!”
-Santurnino G., Paraguay
Imagine being able to reach over 3,200 people with the Gospel in Crisis Pregnancy Centers, Youth Centers, Homeless Shelters, Soup Kitchens, Doctor’s Offices, Dentist’s Offices and a vast array of ministries and businesses throughout your community. Now imagine doing that within a year’s time!
That’s exactly what Randy W. from South Carolina did! Here’s the synopsis of his story:“I place WMP booklets in display racks that I have set up at retail stores. Please pass my thanks to all at WMP. I started this one year ago and have distributed over 3,200 of The Way to God booklets, just from my displays!”
The 3,200 Scripture booklets that Randy mentioned were of just one title. Each business display holds several different titles of Scripture booklets and Bible studies as well! While you most certainly can’t be present in businesses during every single working hour, your displays can!
“How do I get started?” We’re glad that you asked! You can begin by calling us at (574) 831-2111 Ext. 245 or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org to place your order for these displays. Before approaching business owners and ministry leaders, be sure that you are willing to visit them on a regular basis to restock their displays. We recommend that you begin with Christian business owners and ministries who know you and whose businesses your are patronizing. It is also important to assure them that you will be responsible for maintaining the displays.
Our team of specialists look forward to hearing from you and placing your first order!
Yours in Christ

At EHC, we often recall how Jesus told His disciples, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me” (Matthew 25:40, NIV). He was speaking of feeding the hungry, comforting the stranger, clothing the naked, and visiting the sick and those in prison.
These lost souls live in every nation on earth, often forgotten in the darkest corners of society. As EHC workers carry the love of Christ from home to home—including nontraditional homes like hospitals, prisons, orphanages, and even street corners or sewers—they encounter the “least of these” and seek to care for them as they would care for Christ Himself. Special EHC outreaches and projects seek to reach these lost ones “right where they live!”
The Least of These Living in the Sewers and Slums of Mexico
In Mexico, much of society would like to forget that the “least of these” are among them. EHC Mexico National Director Gloria Silva Lopez explains, “Common people—even Christians—don’t go to the places where these people live because they believe that if we can forget them, they will no longer exist. But they do exist, and they are waiting for someone to bring them the hope of the Gospel!”
Gloria and her teams have made reaching Mexico’s “indigent” populations a priority. “The idea is to immerse ourselves in the depths of our society,” she says, “where no one else wants to go. We find people with drug addictions and with mental health problems. These are people who aren’t even aware of reality. They aren’t able to buy clothes or food, so they rely on people to give them basic necessities. Their homes are streets, gutters, bridges, railways, slums—and yes, even sewers.” EHC Mexico workers will truly go anywhere people call “home” to share the Good News!
Gloria and a team of EHC workers recently completed a project designed specifically to reach sewer-dwellers. “We were invited to visit a network of drains, sewers, and underground passages where entire families are living. Amazingly, up to three generations of indigents sometimes live together in just such a situation!”
Society may have forgotten this community of people literally living beneath them, but EHC has not. Even when homes are in sewage drains, EHC workers will take the Gospel to every such non-traditional dwelling. Although it was dirty and disease ridden, Gloria took a team of workers who together climbed down into a network of sewer drains to share the hope of Jesus with families living there. And as usually happens, a harvest of results awaits our teams wherever they go. Rarely would our workers go to such lengths and not see souls come to Christ as a result. This is exactly why Every Home for Christ exists!
Note: EHC Mexico National Director Gloria Silva Lopez is the guest speaker for our 56th Anniversary Celebration! We invite you to join us for this special gathering on Saturday, October 21st at 6 PM.
