This past year, several doors opened to increase the distribution of WMP literature throughout Europe. A ministry in Romania is developing a systematic plan for reaching 7,000 villages and towns in Southern Romania without a gospel presence as well as supporting contacts throughout the Balkan nations. Many of the missionaries involved in this outreach have used WMP literature over the years. Renewed interest has led to the preparation of a container shipment with 1,280,000 Scripture booklets in 12 languages.
Many Iranian students and young adults who have settled in Northern Europe are open to discussions about the Bible and Christianity. A new supply of Persian New Testaments from WMP will fill an earnest request from those serving the Lord among the Iranian communities.
Increased activity in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Italy, Portugal, U.K. and Spain will lead to more concentrated and efficient distribution in the coming months. A pastor in Italy will soon receive his first full pallet for distribution among many parts of Italy and Cyprus.
“We have been giving booklets out for free to the people we meet on the streets and in our churches. I am a pastor in a growing evangelical church in northern Norway, and, by the way, we were so blessed to have the opportunity to visit you in Indiana last year. We are doing AIRBNB apartment rentals and have many different nationalities staying with us. We started distributing booklets in January 2019 and already five people have received Jesus as their personal Savior. The booklets are helping them to understand God and Jesus and keep the faith through reading booklets while they are on vacation. We really enjoy your work and would also like to donate to you from time to time.”
