God is opening doors in Europe! New contacts in Scandinavia are positioning themselves to distribute thousands of Scripture booklets in more than 20 languages! Boxes of booklets are heading into the Balkan nations and into Ukraine through Romania, and believers in Russia are looking to WMP for millions of booklets to reach their cities and villages.
WMP Scripture booklets are a big part of efforts to reach Muslims in Bulgaria. “This week I received 30 boxes of booklets. Two sisters in Christ and I made a journey to regions in Bulgaria where the population is mostly Muslim. Though it is a hard area to work, the mighty hand of our Lord was with us and opened the hearts of the people toward the Gospel and receiving the booklets. I hope this seed will grow in their hearts and bring much fruit to Jesus Christ.” —Dicho T., Bulgaria
Individuals are making a difference in their cities and families. As one wrote, “These booklets are concise, easy to read, and have the potential to convince or remind readers of God’s love and faithfulness.” Marie G. is burdened for the souls she sees around her home near Paris, France. She was overjoyed upon discovering she could order WMP booklets in French. Conrad reaches to extended family in Ukraine and Barry F. shares the gospel in Oslo, Norway.
