INVITING ALL TO THE COMING MARRIAGE
“Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns! Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.” (Revelation 19:6b-7)
Jesus is actively building His church, preparing His bride, and collecting His people. The world’s news media reports the changes, chaos, and conflicts of the nations, focusing on the suffering, pain, and oppression. Despite their perspective, God is still setting people free from sin, healing their hurts, and providing for their physical needs. Scripture is God’s invitation to the marriage supper of the Lamb. Through World Missionary Press Scripture booklets, many unreached people are invited to come by witnessing servants of Christ. Our distributors report the miracles, share the testimonies, and tell the stories of how neighbors, coworkers, and friends turn to Jesus, how fellowship groups are established, and how churches are planted.
Last year WMP provided 57 million booklets in 103 languages to 28 countries in Africa. “We have been richly blessed with the receipt and distribution of hundreds of thousands of evangelism and discipleship documents made available for the body of Christ and the salvation of souls. The people of Côte d’Ivoire are happy to receive these booklets, which are a treasure. The booklets are a door of revelation manifesting the love, goodness, and faithfulness of God. With WMP, we go everywhere in each home, towards each person (tribe and people) to bring the good news of the gospel of Jesus.” –Lolo L.
Although much of Asia resists Christianity, requests for Scripture booklets printed in the languages of this region continue to come in. God’s Word is available in Japanese, Korean, Traditional and Simplified Chinese, Dari (Afghanistan), Persian (Iran), Urdu (Pakistan) Hmong Daw (China, North Vietnam, Thailand, and Laos), Nepali, and many other languages of this region. At the request of distributors, we are also preparing booklets in Azeri (Azerbaijan) and Pashtu (Afghanistan). We are excited to prepare another container of literature for Pakistan, as well as provide 24 million booklets for a nation in South Asia.
“I do the work of missions and twice a month my church uses The Amazing Life of Jesus Christ and The Way to God booklets in Nepali as our tools to reach people and bring them to the Lord Jesus Christ. Together we can win Nepal for the Lord Jesus Christ.” –Philip C.
Requests from Australia are increasing. Emma G. teaches English to people residing in Australia from various countries in Africa and from Japan. She uses the The Way to God and the Bible Study on Matthew in her classes.
Mario M. informed us, “It is difficult to find Christian literature down here. Someone gave me one of your booklets in 2006 and it had a big impact in my life. As I saw myself in the mirror of God’s Word, I called unto the Lord for deliverance and salvation. I now use the booklets with family members and friends that don’t know the Lord personally.”
In 2024 WMP will have the privilege of supplying Scripture booklets in multiple languages for a major outreach at the biggest rock music festival in Northern Europe. Promotors estimate a crowd of up to 165,000 people. “The youth, especially young men, are open to the things of God. We are praying for 1,000 soul winners in Denmark for those days. There will also be opportunities for outreach at the July 2024 European Union Soccer championships and the August 2024 Paris Olympics. Fields to sow, seeds to grow and to HARVEST!” –Tony and Susan M.
Believers in North America are recognizing that the secularized society has grown ignorant of gospel truths. More and more are using Scripture booklets to reach those they encounter, making use of booklets published in the many foreign languages now spoken in Canada and the USA.
“What sets your organization apart from other tract publishers is the wide variety of language options available. I live in Boston, which is a very diverse city. Not being able to communicate the gospel due to a language barrier is very painful and frustrating. With your booklet variety, I can always leave someone with a message in their own language.” –Michael P.
From Ontario, Canada, Janet B. writes, “My daughter and I received a booklet Help from Above from a 4 to 6-year-old little girl outside a public mall in Scarborough. We looked at the back of the booklet and found your website address. We will be handing out God Loves You! coloring books outside malls and public places near Toronto. We want to share the truth of God’s love for humanity and give an opportunity for all to receive Christ while there is still time.”
“One of your distributors prayed for me in the Minneapolis airport and gave one of your booklets to me. Thank you and God bless you for sharing the Word throughout the world. I will be sharing The Way to God with my friends and family members and other baby Christians.” –Ronald R., of Arizona.
SOUTH AND CENTRAL AMERICA
Ministries and distribution points are growing in Brazil, Peru, and other countries. Over 40 million booklets are on the WMP production schedule for Latin America, including Mexico. This past year in Central Mexico, distributors dispersed a shipment of 200,000 booklets in less than 6 months.
Lucas S. of Brazil thanks WMP for witnessing tools that he otherwise could not afford. “I am a novice pastor engaged in missions, taking over a small church in a neighborhood lacking the gospel and with great social inequality, with about 35 thousand residents and less than 15% believers in the Lord. The neighborhood still has an epidemic of crack users and many homeless people living together with a large population of families and children. It is a fertile field for the preaching of the gospel and the advancement of the work.”
When placing his first order for booklets, Nick P. wrote, “I am an active local missionary serving 14 years in Peru. I work in a ghetto community called Ventanilla in the northern outskirts of Lima city and a traditional witchcraft village called Huasao in the nearby city of Cusco. I hope that this order will build into a relationship for our evangelism ministry in Peru. May God bless you all and your ministry!”
