"Aloha from Hawaii. I praise the Lord for your hard work in the kingdom of God. Here, I used to display the booklets like a little library on the side of my house, where miles of students pass by every single school day. Now, I am working with Lyft and Uber and had the idea of sharing my aloha with passengers by giving them one of these booklets. I use the time of our ride to share my personal experience with God Almighty. I have seen people confessing Jesus as Savior, and that is priceless joy!"
Overcoming Distribution Challenges
"World Missionary Press printed 141,000 French New Testaments and Scripture booklets that we need for former Muslims in Guinea and Ivory Coast. They shipped them to Christian Aid Ministries who put them in a container and shipped them across the ocean. The 7,000 pound load was trucked to Hope 2, for free storage. A fourth ministry, Kingdom Earth Builders, took a truck load to Missionary Aviation Fellowship in Monrovia to be flown to our base in Zwedru. A trailer load was hauled from Zwedru to the sixth ministry, Hope in the Harvest Missions International, in the city of Ganta. From Zwedru and Ganta, Wordsower Africa took the literature across the Guinea and Ivory Coast borders via 55 gallon barrels strapped to the back of motor bikes. Harassment by border guards, accidents, bruises and blood are the norm when crossing the border. Stitches and broken bone treatment are sometimes needed. Bike breakdowns are common, resulting in sleeping along the road in the mud, against a tree or on a log. Our base leaders will give the New Testaments and Scripture booklets to the new converts to use for evangelism, discipleship and church planting."

A Word of Thanks from Prison
"This is my second year requesting the datebook. It truly is a blessing to my everyday walk with the Lord. The best part about this datebook is the Scripture fits what I am going through and the mood I am in. Thank you for making it available to me. May God’s grace and peace be with all of you."
-Mikhail A., USA Prison
"There is a town in Liberia called Dejieh. This town was a powerful Animist, demonic stronghold. Their spiritual leader, called “the devil”, had made a law, stating that no one was to go to church, no church was allowed in his town, and no one was to baptize. The penalty for breaking this law was the fine of one cow. It was also stated and known that if anyone tried to enter the town with Christianity that they will be severely punished. Our Wordsower Africa disciples entered knowing the threat and consequences. Many came to Christ through their fearless efforts, including “the devil” himself! Our team goes to them discipling regularly. The town has agreed that they need a church and has given land for a church. We have never entered an Animistic demonic stronghold, through Christ, and not crumbled its foundation. Pray for this town."

Creativity During The Pandemic
As you know, after two years of COVID-19 things in the world are a little different.
During the crisis, people didn’t get out. As a result, there were less people to witness to in the plazas and streets. Our ministry leadership (at Mexico for Jesus) woke up to the reality that just about everyone has a cell phone – using the internet, WhatsApp, Twitter, Facebook and so on. So during the crisis we started sending the Scripture booklet, How to Know God, to their WhatsApp, Twitter and so on. You would not believe the response!
People started responding, so we started small groups via Zoom to study the Scripture booklet. From there, many have gone on to study the New Testament. Some have completed that and are now in the process of going through the Old Testament. God has helped us to invent new ways to make disciples, on the internet, here in person, and across Mexico.”
