As World Missionary Press receives pleas for more and more Scripture booklets from ministries and churches in India, we are confronted over and over again with the challenge of how to answer these requests. Laying the letters before the Lord, as King Hezekiah did, we ask the Lord to show us what to do and how to do it.
Circumstances have brought about two distinct ways to do more to reach the 1.3 billion people of India with the gospel. God has provided resources to increase production in our plant in Indiana. As production volume has increased without additional overhead expenses, our cost to produce each additional Scripture booklet has been reduced. This enables us to print more booklets for every dollar donated. As income grows, production can increase even more, and the number of booklets that can be printed for a single dollar increases. We praise God for each donor who contributes to the printing of more and more Scripture booklets.
In addition, the Lord laid it on the heart of WMP’s leadership to create a special focus to impact India through a MAJOR supply of WMP Scripture booklets. Realizing that time may be short and that many parts of India are experiencing increasing resistance to the preaching of the gospel, we developed Project India—a focused effort to provide 100,000,000 booklets for India in 3 years at a cost of $3,000,000. Major ministry partners in India have calculated the need and have teams in place to use all we can produce. The production of 8 million Scripture booklets in India was recently completed. By printing here at a reduced cost as well as printing in India, WMP can significantly increase the amount of material available to attack enemy strongholds and bring light to the darkness.
The challenge is before us. He has committed to us the ministry of reconciliation. The time is short. Millions are dying daily without ever knowing their Creator and the One who gave all to restore them to Himself. We praise God that one of our regular partners has sponsored one of four containers destined for India in line for production here. Will you help?
