God has done amazing things this past fiscal year, and it is evident that He is positioning World Missionary Press for even more increase in sending His Word around the world to fulfill His purpose in the lives of individual people, one by one.“Other sheep I have… ; them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice” (John 10:16a).
As we look back at the amazing events of the past year, we are filled with awe at the bountiful provisions of the Lord and humbly look to Him as He leads us forward.
Knowing that God does all things well, that He is not willing that any should perish, that His way is to send His Word(Isaiah 55:8-11), and that He is the One enlarging us even through loss, we are filled with eager expectation for what the coming year holds – looking to Him to continue His work in and through World Missionary Press.
Equipment Needs for Continued Growth
� for wisdom in the effective use of new staff, facilities, and equipment as WMP continues to step up production in 2014;
� that contributions will continue strong and that God will provide the additional equipment needed for continued growth;
� that equipment will run smoothly and that additional volunteer groups will get involved;
� for distributors who faithfully go where God’s Word is needed; and
� that multitudes will come to Christ and be transformed through the power of God’s Word in their own languages.

Free DVD of WMP’s 52nd Anniversary Program, available on request, includes the commissioning of Harold Mack as WMP president and message by Dick Eastman, “The Power of a Single Seed.”
One of the most complex projects in WMP history was 18 months in the planning, as 15 shipments to Francophone African nations were prepared, some going where we had never before sent large quantities of God’s Word. Extra prayer was needed. Shipments arrived safely; however, the Gabon container is still awaiting release from customs.
Four new translations were printed in 2013: How to Know God in Uzbek; The Way to God in Nyaneka; Help From Above inInuktitut; and The Power of God in Blin, bringing the total number of languages printed by WMP to 341 languages. Three Bible study booklets (Psalms, John, and Romans) were printed in Portuguese for the first time.
More than 2,240,000 copies of A Bible Study on Johnwere printed in nine languages this past year. One missionary wrote, “Out here in the more remote parts of the world, your literature is a total GOD thing. I was out talking to pastors this morning about the new study of John in Portuguese.”
Partnering Toward Completion!
A Special Word from Dick Eastman International President, Every Home for Christ
“Blessed are those who die in the Lord …. They are blessed indeed, for they will rest from their hard work; for their good deeds follow them!” -Revelation 14:13-14 (NLT)
IT HAS BEEN SUCH A JOY to partner with World Missionary Press in taking the Good News of Jesus to the uttermost parts of the earth. It wasn’t long after I became the international president of Every Home for Christ 25 years ago that one of my first assignments from the Lord was to visit the WMP headquarters in Indiana. I wanted to meet more personally with Jay and Vicky Benson to look at ways we might strengthen our partnership in reaching literally millions of homes together with the gospel and thus see an even greater harvest of souls than either of our ministries could gather on our own.
