Emlan was born into a Muslim family and taught the way of Islam. He learned that Jesus was a prophet but not the Son of God. When someone gave him a How to Know God Scripture booklet, he became confused but interested to find out more fully about Jesus. It was a turning point for Emlan to learn that Jesus rose from the dead to give us Life! “None of the other prophets lived to give Life to others,” he said. Emlan gave his life to Christ.
"This week I received 30 boxes of your booklets. Two of our sisters in Christ and I made a journey to some of the regions in Bulgaria where the population is mostly Muslim. Even though it is a hard area to work, the mighty hand of our Lord Jesus Christ was with us and opened the hearts of the people toward the Gospel and receiving the booklets. I really hope that this seed will grow in their hearts and bring much fruit to Jesus Christ. I bring all this good news to you because I want you to know that your support by giving us the booklets is a really big part in this good result."
Guinea is a nation of 12.7 million people, 86% of whom are Muslim, with 29 unreached tribes. One ministry sent a team of two trained Liberian leaders to neighboring Guinea. They visited village after village, introducing themselves to the leader of the village after much prayer and stating their purpose—to start a church where there was no church. Wherever they went, they were received with openness, listened to with respect beyond their expectations, and even encouraged to teach and preach! Over and over again, the “impossible” happened. It seemed that all they had to do was show up in obedience and find a prepared people waiting. This ministry is awaiting a shipment of French New Testaments from WMP to establish new believers in these newly opened villages. WMP’s national coordinator in Guinea has requested two container shipments for his country to meet the challenge of reaching one million people in Guinea with the gospel.
“I drive a truck for a company with a lot of Muslims from Pakistan. At the end of my shift, the next driver of the truck is often a driver who is Muslim. I would like to try leaving booklets in various trucks that I drive on my shift. Send them when they become available.”

"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."
“My wife and I will be distributing booklets as God leads. Our ministry opportunities are abundant! We will also be donating to this wonderful ministry! I was introduced to you by a friend I met on YouTube. He’s a beautiful former Muslim who is now a street preacher in Las Vegas! It seems like he orders your booklets by the crate! He came to visit me here in Pensacola Beach, Florida and gave me one!
Thank you and God bless you. ”

“My name is Emlan M. I was born in a Muslim family and taught the way of Islam. We learned that Jesus is only a prophet, like other prophets, and not the Son of God because God cannot have a Son. This is according to our Koran. I became confused when I was given your Scripture booklet, How to Know God, by a team from EHC-Zambia in February 2018. I got interested and wanted to follow the story of Jesus in full. What confused me is the fact that Jesus rose from the dead and He lives. No other prophet has a record that he died and rose from the dead. Our Koran agrees that Jesus lived as a prophet of God. Now, following His story in detail, I find that He rose from the dead to give life to those who believe in Him. No other prophet has lived to give life to others. This was my turning point to give my life to Christ. Thank God that I found Him through His Son and not just a prophet. The EHC-Zambia team are now teaching me how to know Christ more in their Christ group in which I am placed."

“A lot of people here in Malawi are reading WMP booklets with much interest. Most of the villagers here do not have Bibles and these gospel booklets are helpful, indeed, to them. Whenever I happen to board a bus, I distribute these booklets. I am also giving a good number of booklets to some pastors to distribute to other people so that the gospel should be heard everywhere.
I thank God because one of the persons who once received these booklets was a Muslim, but now she has become a Christian, praise the Lord!
I thank God for World Missionary Press and its vision of fulfilling the great commission. I am a born-again Christian, a pastor and an evangelist, aged 44. I am pastoring a church in Malawi Africa. As an evangelist, I do go in the village streets to distribute Scripture booklets or gospel literature. Many people are knowing the truth through this kind of evangelism.
The only challenge I face is transportation because there are so many villages here which are very far, which have not [yet] been reached with the gospel. Most of the time I walk by foot long distances to distribute booklets written by Watson Goodman.
May the good Lord bless your ministry. May you also pray for the provision of reliable mode of transportation for me so that I may reach many villages. I would be glad if you continue praying for me and encouraging me to spread the gospel through the distribution of your booklets.”
-Rev. Samuel M., Malawi
“I was absolutely delighted to receive the coloring books. They are so wonderful and beautiful and present the Gospel in simple and easy-to-understand words. Many of their parents read with their children so they can understand and accept Jesus as Savior. We have many families who are saved and baptized, but who also need to study the Word to grow in Christ. So I’m very happy to give their children the coloring books but now there are more children so I need thirty more coloring books. Also, Scripture Memory Books are perfect for the young people and their parents. It’s great! I think I have enough memorizing books for now. Thank you so much!
We are getting more and more Muslims moving here so I could use more The Way to God booklets, but in Farsi language...maybe 50.
Though I’m 88 years old, my husband and I pray for your ministry every evening. He is 95 years old. Receiving the booklets makes me feel like jumping up and down and clapping my hands, but I still must hold onto my walker! We love your ministry!"

“I am a Christian man, 50 years old, in Sweden. My church gives out coffee free to people in the middle of town, Uppsala, almost every weekend. At the same time, we share the gospel about Jesus Christ to people. There are many refugees who have come to Sweden from the Middle East and most them are Muslims. They are often very open to listen to the gospel. I’ve read the booklet, The Way to God, in Swedish and I thought it was very good. I met a Swedish evangelist in Stockholm this spring and we evangelized among the Muslims in a suburb. He had the booklet, The Way to God, in a few languages and I gave it to people who knew the language. I also read it in Swedish and thought it was very good, according to my faith in God. I saw the internet address at the backside of the booklet and searched it with my computer.” -Tobias E., Sweden
