“We use the Arabic New Testament in many different ways. Every correspondence course participant receives a New Testament to help them complete the courses. We send the New Testaments to prison inmates, we offer them through our Arabic magazine, and we send them free to anyone who asks for one. We give them away at Arabic gatherings, festivals, conferences. We mail a lot overseas and in the United States and Canada. I believe the Word of God is a great tool to reach the Arab people.
This morning I met with a man from overseas to discuss the best tool to use to reach Arab people for Christ. He said that printed matter, the Word of God, is the best way to learn about Christianity. He said in his country, 99% of his people have never had a Bible, New Testament, or any other Christian material. They know nothing about Christ.
There are millions of people in this situation. Please pray for us in this area to find the right way to send the Word of God to these people. This man said, ‘The government of my country is not afraid of tanks, planes, or pilots now in our land from the west, but is afraid of the black and white printed Word of God!’ I believe the Word of God has the power and is alive today, and those who read it will turn to God and leave their wicked way. This Word of God will move them from darkness to light as the psalmist wrote in Psalm 119:130, ‘?The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.’”

Praise Him Anyway!
I woke up this morning
Praising God for this new day.
I didn’t need to check the weather,
I praised Him anyway!
Nothing had really changed overnight
from its standing yesterday,
But there was no need to fret or worry,
I just praised Him anyway!
I have yet to have a problem
or a sickness come my way
That is bigger than my Father,
as I have praised Him anyway!
It seems that when I praise Him
I can actually hear Him say,
“I have made you more than a conqueror
As you’ve praised Me anyway!”
“In the world you shall have trials,
and tribulations come your way
But who can be against you when I am for you?
Just praise Me anyway!”
So, let me glorify You, Father,
in all that I do or say.
And please help me be more willing
To praise You anyway!

“We had another container with booklets, 40-foot this time. It came with more than two million booklets from World Missionary Press, everything paid for, up to the storage rooms. What a blessing, dear friends! We are so blessed with our partnership with WMP. God is so good to us, and we do know that He loves the lost in Madagascar. We printed a special tract for the festive season, with stress on a salvation message and that a Saviour was born for us, not so much [focused] on Christmas but on Christ. We praise the Lord that we visited more than 161,000 homes in six cities in three provinces during December. All this was done before Christmas Day. What a joy, dear friends! God is so good to us. So many people responded positively to the gospel message. I think I can say, as we look at reports from our distributors, this was the best-ever distribution project we’ve had. Of the 161,000 + people who received the gospel message, 12,329 responded positively to the way of salvation message. In general, we use 1+1 of WMP booklets and an additional tract printed for the season, depending on the time of the year. Our next project will be Passover, and it will take place halfway down on our west coast—a large city and surrounding villages. We plan to visit 80,000 homes.”
