A medical team that took WMP Scripture booklets to Nicaragua excitedly reported how helpful the booklets were in getting the gospel into several areas of the country. As people came to the door of the clinic, they received a Scripture booklet. Local pastors received supplies for further outreach and teaching.
I ask you to please pray for an event coming up on July 27th. Our Children’s Gift Ministry Team will be traveling from San Pedro Sula, Honduras to the capital city of Tegucigalpa to distribute personal protection equipment kits to doctors and nurses on the front line of COVID-19 at two hospitals. They are in serious need of these items and encouragement.
These doctors and nurses serve out of love for their fellow countrymen and are risking their lives for the sake of others. In their own words: “This protective equipment helps us serve the people who come to our hospitals more safely, so that we don’t spread the disease to other patients, get infected ourselves, or take it home to our families.” There will be 130 bio security kits divided evenly between the two hospitals.
This will be the second such distribution in recent months and, as always, people's lives will be touched through the dissemination of World Missionary Press Scripture booklets.
While dealing with new routines, many have discovered new opportunities to share the Word of God. In West Virginia, Jennifer R. serves the homeless through a local rescue mission. She requested a variety of Bible study booklets for small groups of ten or less (“these people do not have access to the internet”) as well as the small coloring books for children. “Our community is hurting for Christ.… Due to COVID-19, our initial outreach plans have changed, but we are still diligently sending out the Word of the Lord through every avenue possible at this turbulent time. Thank you so much for all that you do in seeing that the gospel reaches the nations!”
In early April Ben B. requested 10,000 copies of The Way to God Scripture booklet in Spanish and as many Spanish New Testaments as we could provide. He and The Way of the Cross Ministries, long-time partners of World Missionary Press, were setting up a drive-through food give-away in their Texas hometown and were completely out of WMP literature!
After receiving the Scripture booklets and 1,000 New Testaments, and opening up the drive-through food bank, Ben sent an update: “We have seen 2,520 salvations in the past three weeks! This is one of the good things that has come out of this desperate time in America’s life. People are turning to Jesus. Praise the Lord!”
With 2,140,758 Scripture pieces, this container is sure to provide materials for many evangelism and outreach opportunities for our coordinator and distributors in Argentina.
Our coordinator in Argentina has been out of material for a while and there are millions of people who are hungry for hope. And there is no greater hope than the hope we have in God, which is why these booklets are so important.
Every booklet represents at least one person who will read about the hope that God freely gives to those who believe in Him. Every booklet is a chance for someone to learn about God’s great forgiveness, mercy, and salvation. Every booklet is important because every person who will receive it is important.
At this moment, the shipment is being held up in port due to
COVID-19. Please join us as we pray for the quick release of these materials once the COVID-19 restrictions are safely lifted.
Pray for every person who will be receiving the booklets to have an open heart for the Gospel. Pray that through the Scripture booklets many people will receive Jesus as their Savior and gain eternal and perfect hope through Jesus. Pray that the Scripture booklets will not only impact one person, but their families, their communities, and their country.
"The postal workers were very scared and desperate when I picked up the boxes of Scripture booklets that you sent.
When they understood that I had received Christian literature, they expressed their desire to receive some booklets and to know more about Christ.
I can say that the doors for the Gospel are now open, even though the borders are closed.
Thanks for your faithfulness in the work of Christ!"
