The partnership between World Missionary Press and Pastor Joel and his father in El Salvador goes back almost 50 years. From initial orders of just a few booklets to container shipments, God’s Word has been shared in prisons, homes, and in the streets. Pastor Joel’s father has gone to be with the Lord, but the work goes on. The name El Salvador means “The Savior.” The name of the Savior is being held high for the 6.6 million people of El Salvador to look to for hope and salvation. A nation that has come through war and its accompanying hardships is finding healing through the Word of God. Pastor Joel requested a new supply of Scripture booklets adding, “The work of evangelism with the WMP booklets has not stopped, even in the most difficult times of the pandemic. We have carried the message of peace and salvation, and as a result we are harvesting fruit in abundance: precious souls coming to the feet of Jesus.” A shipment of 456,250 booklets is scheduled for delivery in the coming weeks.
The diversity of peoples and languages in the USA and Canada pose challenges to sharing the truth of God’s Word to those who may not know the name of Jesus or who He is. Those challenges are being met as believers recognize opportunities and look to WMP for Scripture-based literature. Along the southern US border, in cities with large ethnic concentrations, among the homeless, the imprisoned, the needy, God’s Word is bringing comfort and hope. During days of isolation from school and work, WMP Bible studies draw families together around God’s Word.
One man with a unique burden for the American Indian population in the northern U.S. gathers items for their physical needs as well as WMP Scripture booklets for young and old. Working with local churches, he brings the love of God to those who often seem unnoticed, showing them through His Word how much He loves each person individually.
Wherever one may live, God sees and knows the heart. His Word is for all. His love reaches to the farthest corner of the earth. Topical Scripture booklets are a ready tool for anyone to share the story of Jesus and His love. Millions still wait to know this love. World Missionary Press is committed to providing words of hope and peace as open eyes and hearts go through a small Scripture booklet.
An itinerate pastor in S. Asia felt called to a certain village where he began to distribute The Way to God and How to Know God Scripture booklets from World Missionary Press. As one woman read through the booklets, the Lord began to work in her heart. When the pastor shared with her what Jesus had done for mankind, she began to cry and confess her sins before the Lord. She committed her life to follow Jesus and live for Him as a testimony among her neighbors. As a result, the pastor was able to establish a fellowship group in that village. The group grew into a church which was able to construct its own building in that place.
“With all the unrest in Haiti, it is incredible that the children continue to make their way to the program each week. This month, the children are being taught using a Bible study on the book of Matthew from World Missionary Press. The teachers continue to encourage the children to put their faith and trust in Jesus, ensuring that their eternal life is guaranteed even as the world around them is falling apart. Just as the rice and beans nourish their bodies, God’s Word nourishes their souls. Please pray for the safety of the children and the staff as they travel to the program sites and back home and please keep the people of Haiti in your prayers, that the Lord’s peace will prevail in that dark land.”

In Mexico, The Amazing Life of Jesus Christ was given to a lady along with a personal testimony, as she sat in anguish outside a hospital. She had just received a diagnosis of breast cancer. Several weeks later, the lady euphorically reported, “I do not have cancer! God healed me!” She had prayerfully studied the booklet and has now received Christ as Savior and become part of a discipleship group.
