“Whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.” –John 4:14

Brother M. is from the rainforest area of southern Sri Lanka. When a pastor gave M. The Way to God Scripture booklet from World Missionary Press, he was intrigued by its content and allowed the pastor to explain the message of Christ’s love. Filled with joy, M. embraced Christ. He shared his newfound faith with his sisters who also read the booklet and welcomed the opportunity to learn more about Jesus. His parents and sisters began attending church and the entire family was transformed by the Lord.

Once Sri Lanka was a Sinhala speaking Buddhist kingdom that welcomed Tamil speaking Hindu refugees from India. The kingdom was known for its tolerance and non-violence. However in recent years both groups have targeted Sinhalese and Tamil Christians making outreach for the gospel potentially very dangerous in this country of 22 million people. Persecution against Christians comes in waves but is severe when it comes. Extremists have destroyed or damaged at least 250 churches in recent years.

Most Christians are concentrated in the urban areas of Colombo and Jaffna on the northwest coast. The rural villages still present a challenge; many are still affected by the ravages of civil war, tsunamis, and general poverty. Operation World reports that there are still 25,000 villages without a church, many devoid of any witness. There is a need for strategic rural ministry with Bible-based literature. Literacy is high, but affordable, quality evangelistic literature is lacking.

God has opened new doors for WMP to meet this critical need and support ministries that will go from village to village with the Word of God. A 40’ container shipment will provide Scripture booklets for the national coordinator, reinforce a long-time partner with village outreach, and supply a new ministry of 200-plus pastors waiting for Seed to sow.

Sister B. and her husband reside in Central Sri Lanka. They are from different religious backgrounds.  B. has always been curious about spiritual teachings illuminating the path to a meaningful existence. In March 2023, she was given the Scripture booklet Help From Above in her native Tamil language. Moved by the booklet’s message, B. shared it with her husband, igniting their joint quest to explore the teachings of Jesus further.

The booklet changed her life completely and she is overwhelmed with joy in the Lord. Reflecting on her spiritual journey, she says, “Through the Holy Bible I have found solace and answers. I firmly believe that the Word of God is the wellspring of life. His presence blesses us and I aspire to deepen my faith and understanding of His teachings. I am grateful that my husband and I embraced Jesus together, uniting us in worship as a family. My heart overflows with joy as I follow the living God.”

[Praise the Lord for renewed opportunities and new ministries in Sri Lanka. Every donated dollar provides for the production of 21 powerful Scripture booklets for people across the continents in their own language. An investment of $100 will touch the lives of 2,100 people; $1,000 will affect 21,000 people who need hope in God.]


Grateful Quotes: Hospital Staff Thankful for God’s Word

“I want to thank you for the many wonderful booklets that you were able to send to Monrovia, Liberia. I visited your distributor, who was able to supply me with a large quantity of gospel booklets that we will use for all of the staff and all of the many thousands of patients that come through ELWA hospital. These are pure gold! I really do not have words to tell you how grateful I am for your ministry and for these Scripture portions. Thank you so much.” –Your brother in Christ, Tim C.


Update from the President

Dear Friends,

I’m so encouraged by the continued growth of World Missionary Press! In recent years especially, the Lord has increased our capacity for production by adding much-needed warehouse and shipment staging space, streamlining our workflow, providing for additional equipment, and bringing additional workers. During this same time, He has brought new opportunities for providing significantly increased quantities of His Word around the world to existing and new distribution partners. In fact, the recent increased demand for Scripture materials is even outpacing our growth in production!

Over the past couple years I’ve sensed a continued decrease in strength and energy level on my part.

First Peter 1:23-25 tells us that the word of God endures forever, but that people fade; “All flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of the grass. The grass withers, and its flower falls away, but the Word of the Lord endures forever.” As we draw ever closer to the return of Christ, the need and urgency for His Word to flood the earth continues to grow, as does the ministry of World Missionary Press. Billions have yet to hear of and experience the love of Christ, and be “born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever.”

Through prayerful consideration I have decided it is time for me to retire, turning over my leadership role to the next person God has chosen for this position. Lord willing, I will serve as president through the end of November. Our Board of Directors has formed a search committee, and has engaged an executive search firm that specializes in finding Christian leaders for nonprofits, to help find the next person God has chosen to serve as president of this amazing worldwide ministry.

Thank you for the ways you are partnering with World Missionary Press to produce and send portions of God’s powerful word throughout the earth! As the Lord leads us through the coming months and upcoming transition, your continued partnership in prayer and support is greatly appreciated! May the Lord bless and encourage you!

Sincerely in Christ,



WMP Scripture booklets continue to help people receive Jesus; be established, rooted, and built up in Him; and abound with thanksgiving. (See Colossians 2:6-7)
