Challenges to ship to the world have become formidable. Rising prices, closed ports, congested ports, limited shipping lanes and berths, waiting for available empty containers—all make for uncertain schedules, but day after day God shows that He is sovereign and that He will make His Word known to the world. Containers that had been stored, waiting for shipping assignments, found a berth and were on the way. At times WMP had 20-30 shipments afloat en route to waiting consignees. Although delays were often encountered, shipments arrived intact and found their way to the prescribed destination.
None were lost or damaged. Surely God had His hand on His Word!
This past fiscal year, more than 100 separate freight shipments (including a record high 81 containers) were sent to 96 countries, covering the globe! Shipments carried booklets in languages such as Quechua, Malagasy, German, Polish, Thai, Cebuano, and Hausa. Millions will receive God’s Word, some for the first time in their own language.
