“My name is Manuel. I am currently incarcerated at North Kern State Prison in Delano, California. These times in prison have been so hard and stressful. No words can express how much your 2019 Scripture-Text Datebook has helped and strengthened me. I have gained faith, hope, and confidence through your Datebook. I enjoy reading the daily Scriptures within your Datebook and want to thank you for helping me regain my relationship with Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior. I would love to keep learning about our Lord and keep my faith growing with your help. If possible, I would like to receive any, and or all, of your Scripture-by-subject booklets, Scripture booklets, Bible study booklets, Scripture Memory Book, and My Bible Reading Book, to stay on the right path with the Lord, our Savior. Your hard work and effort have really helped save me from losing my faith. Thank you for your support and generosity. I am truly blessed to have found your Scripture-Text Datebook. Any help would be gratefully appreciated. May the Lord bless all of you at World Missionary Press. Thank you in advance.”

"I Just wanted you to know that we received the Scripture booklets that you sent. Thank you so much, as this will be an invaluable tool in our outreach to the over 50,000 Venezuelan refugees currently residing in Trinidad. It has been impossible to source Spanish language tracts locally, and we are very grateful!"

I had a wonderful conversation today with Roger Walterhouse of Feed the Hungry. He conveyed their great appreciation for the first shipment of our Bible Study on John, part of which went to Malawi. They are beginning to see great results just from this first shipment. He relayed the following incidents.
The FTH team went to an area outside of Blantyre, Malawi where there were many HIV/AIDS victims. FTH had given out the BSJ in this area previously. Roger and his team organized a meeting for follow-up, etc. As the people filed in to the meeting he saw they were carrying the BSJ. He thought they had probably received copies as they entered the building. Instead he discovered that these Bible studies were the ones previously distributed and that each of the attendees brought them because they have no Bible, so this small Bible study serves as their Bible. They were there with their “Bibles”.
In a region along the border between Malawi and Mozambique they visited a refugee camp where many Mozambiquans had come due to the recent destruction and devastation from the cyclone. As he and his companion Chuck walked through the camp they saw a man sitting in front of a small thatched hut with a copy of the WMP Bible Study on John which he had received on a previous visit from FTH teams. Chuck stopped to talk to the man, asking him about the book. Like the Ethiopian eunuch from Acts the man replied he needed someone to help him understand what he was reading. As they talked, the man said he was an animist and practiced a traditional religion of the region. Chuck asked if he could tell the man about Jesus, and just as Philip years ago Chuck shared the truth of Jesus Christ from God’s Word.

Yuri Ilnitski and his team distributed over 1000 “Help from Above “ booklets in English and Spanish at this year's Fall Festival in Duluth, Georgia! Community Festivals afford us so many great opportunities to share the Love of Jesus! It's wonderful for people to encounter Jesus in the Scriptures after they have encountered the Christ in YOU!
