A faithful WMP partner from Finland, with personal street evangelism experience, has felt the Lord’s call to reach out in unique ways. “One project in my heart,” wrote Ed G., “is to travel around Finland in a motorhome with a bicycle, driving into cities and cycling around delivering Scripture booklets door-to-door. There is much demand here for Persian/Farsi, Russian, Estonian, Somali, and Arabic. I recently embarked on new outreaches of seeking immigrants by visiting ethnic restaurants. It takes many years to learn Finnish fluently (I am still learning after 20 years). I feel peace when giving people booklets in their mother tongue.”
"Last week I was rejoicing to receive from Lebanon the first letter from a man having received the Gospel of John. He shared his name and address and accepted the Lord as his personal Savior.
'I repented of my sin and asked God to forgive me. I asked the Lord Jesus Christ to enter into my heart because I believe they got hold of Him for my sin, and He died on the cross to save me. He is risen for my forgiveness. In Him I have the redemption through His blood to forgive my sin. I praise Him because He is the Savior.' This man’s name is Ahmad.
Pray for him. I am calling Lebanon to find some church close to his area, which is a Muslim area. I will look for the best pastor to shepherd him.
May the Lord bless all that you have done to reach the Arabs and Muslims for Christ."
"I have been utilizing WMP booklets while working with Syrian refugees and Kurdish orphans in Northern Iraq and doing Bible studies with tea for refugee women. I have been sharing your Scripture materials since 1980."

“We use the Arabic New Testament in many different ways. Every correspondence course participant receives a New Testament to help them complete the courses. We send the New Testaments to prison inmates, we offer them through our Arabic magazine, and we send them free to anyone who asks for one. We give them away at Arabic gatherings, festivals, conferences. We mail a lot overseas and in the United States and Canada. I believe the Word of God is a great tool to reach the Arab people.
This morning I met with a man from overseas to discuss the best tool to use to reach Arab people for Christ. He said that printed matter, the Word of God, is the best way to learn about Christianity. He said in his country, 99% of his people have never had a Bible, New Testament, or any other Christian material. They know nothing about Christ.
There are millions of people in this situation. Please pray for us in this area to find the right way to send the Word of God to these people. This man said, ‘The government of my country is not afraid of tanks, planes, or pilots now in our land from the west, but is afraid of the black and white printed Word of God!’ I believe the Word of God has the power and is alive today, and those who read it will turn to God and leave their wicked way. This Word of God will move them from darkness to light as the psalmist wrote in Psalm 119:130, ‘?The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.’”
