In South Africa, Pastor M and his team of volunteers handed out The Way to God booklets along with food parcels. They reported that the community was highly appreciative not only for the relief parcels but also for the Scripture booklets as they were printed in the vernacular languages, making them easy to understand and share. Volunteers were able to continue to spread the gospel despite the limitations of a lockdown. “Many pastors have been requesting The Way to God booklets as they have seen how people value them. Many people have turned to Christ amidst the COVID-19 pandemic and need guidance. This booklet makes the work of the evangelist very easy.”
The Democratic Republic of the Congo, with approximately 90 million people, is the most populous officially Francophone country in the world, as well as the second-most populous country in Africa. Its capital, Kinshasa, is an enormous city—the third most populous city in all of Africa. In the past year, new doors have opened for WMP to send large supplies into D.R.C. to meet a growing cry for God’s Word. Centralized in Kinshasa, shipments carrying Scripture booklets in regional languages as well as in French are also destined for the southern and central regions of D.R.C. as well as Goma in the East.
Charma W. wrote from D.R.C., “The literature helped us a lot in the work of the gospel. We reached several villages and received many testimonies of the souls blessed through the reading of this literature and now the demand multiplies. Our brothers who collaborate with us in the distribution of these Scripture booklets in the villages demand even more because every day they get requests from people and churches for more Scripture! There is a great thirst for spiritual material and learning. World Missionary Press is much appreciated for bringing the gospel to a neglected population. Please send us literature for evangelism in French and Kituba.”
A new ministry partner from D.R.C. has requested WMP literature. “I don’t know how to praise the Lord of our harvest,” wrote Samuel M., “and how to express my joy to read your materials! I welcome all the evangelical materials you have, especially those in Swahili-Congo, Lingala, and French. (New Testaments and The Way to God should not be absent in the shipment.) As we are a church-planting and humanitarian ministry in remote areas, WMP materials are very important, and I believe God and you will be very happy when we begin working together. Again, I say thank you, and I welcome these materials with two hands!”
Guinea is a nation of 12.7 million people, 86% of whom are Muslim, with 29 unreached tribes. One ministry sent a team of two trained Liberian leaders to neighboring Guinea. They visited village after village, introducing themselves to the leader of the village after much prayer and stating their purpose—to start a church where there was no church. Wherever they went, they were received with openness, listened to with respect beyond their expectations, and even encouraged to teach and preach! Over and over again, the “impossible” happened. It seemed that all they had to do was show up in obedience and find a prepared people waiting. This ministry is awaiting a shipment of French New Testaments from WMP to establish new believers in these newly opened villages. WMP’s national coordinator in Guinea has requested two container shipments for his country to meet the challenge of reaching one million people in Guinea with the gospel.
The growing African population will undoubtedly lead to a growing worldwide influence for African churches. Even now, “sending” churches effectively take the gospel into Europe, US, Asia, and Latin America. Such a growing influence must have a strong foundation in the Word of Truth. Many African pastors and missions continue to look to WMP for the pure Word of God found in the topical Scripture booklets as well as the Bible Study on John. A partnership with Feed the Hungry in Malawi, Uganda, Zimbabwe, and Burundi has put The Way to God booklet and the Bible Study on John into the hands of thousands. Pastors are encouraged. Lives are changed.
By her own testimony, 36-year-old Claudette lived a drug-controlled life of debauchery and delinquency. Unmarried, and with two children to care for, she felt friendless and needy. One day visitors came to her African village. They told her about Jesus and gave her a Scripture booklet. As Claudette realized that only Jesus could forgive her sins and give her His salvation, she received Him as her Savior, deciding to let Him guide her life. Now she says, “I am glad that The Way to God booklet is helping me in my relationship with Christ.”
“Many years ago, World Missionary Press printed the New Testament in the Bassari language at our request for the Bassari tribe in Senegal, West Africa. I just wanted you to know that the Bassari tribe in Senegal and Guinea are now 80 percent Christian and are building a Bible school in the bush for themselves. We just wanted to thank you!”

"I am a 36-year-old, single woman with two children. Before accepting Jesus Christ into my heart, I was in debauchery and delinquency. I was also using drugs. Volunteers approached me and began to tell me the good news of Jesus Christ. With the help of my new Christian brothers and sisters, I realized that Jesus is my one true, valiant Friend Who has forgiven my sins and given me salvation! This faithful Friend is now guiding my life and I am especially thankful for World Missionary Press' 'The Way to God' booklet. It is helping me in my relationship with Christ."
"I was 61 years old and had no idea about Jesus' salvation. I felt that good behavior would lead me to heaven. With the help of God's servants, I accepted the Good News that Jesus loves me and came to save me from my sins! I am now following the Lord Jesus, Who is the Savior of the world, and I am determined to help others by sharing the good news from house to house. I'm so thankful for World Missionary Press Scripture booklets, which are helpful in my relationship with God."
"As the young continuously get a chance to hear and get more nurtured in GOD's Word, progressively by the Grace of the Living GOD, there is an assurance of a stable Church tomorrow!
Proverbs 22:6 'Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it.' (NLT)
Special thanks to World Missionary Press Inch, Frontline Line Ministries and the rest out there, for making it happen for the Kids across the world to get access to the Word in a format that suits their level of understanding."

“It is a pleasure to be connected with WMP. I am a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, sending warm wishes from Ghana. I wish to express my gratitude to you. Your booklet, Let’s Praise the Lord! Has really transformed my life and I can’t resist saying a big thank you to God Almighty and a big thank you to WMP. I wish to request more copies of Let’s Praise the Lord, The Amazing Life of Jesus Christ, and any other titles available for evangelism. My distribution strategy is to be located in advantageous places, with friends and fellow ministers of the Gospel, where lots of people gather. It is my joy to express that as I was blessed and impacted by your evangelistic booklet, so the souls I intend to reach through this plan and your assistance will find joy and gladness in the Lord Jesus Christ. I pray my request will be granted. Thank you for your love and care to reach my thirsty soul. God richly bless you.”
