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.
“I ordered a few boxes of booklets and had been hitting the streets with a team I led. But, after a while, I got caught up with my own life and stopped evangelizing. So, about half of the booklets were still stacked up in my room. However, the burden to reach the lost recently came back and I started again and have also been running evangelism training sessions that have been EXTREMELY popular. I have now started an evangelism network and by God’s grace the results have been INCREDIBLE. The teams and network are leading people to Christ at a CRAZY rate! When we evangelize, we give each of them one of your booklets and the ones I have are almost finished now. The long summer holidays are fast approaching and we are going full force with evangelism. We are evangelizing everywhere—at work, schools, universities, colleges, on the streets. Also, there are so many events we will be going to and some of us also intend to travel abroad with the booklets in different languages. We have also found that language barriers can be frustrating and make it hard to share the Gospel. But, with booklets in different languages, even if there is a barrier, we will still be able to give them material in their language that can show them their need and point them to Christ. London is very diverse in backgrounds of the population and for many people, English is not their first language. So your ministry is an amazing resource. I know I have requested many booklets in this order, but they will genuinely be used prayerfully and effectively. I have also carefully selected according to which booklets we have seen to be effective with each different community. Thank you so much and may our Father provide for ALL your needs. Much love!”
