You’re invited to the
60th Anniversary Celebration
of World Missionary Press, Inc.


Peter Goertzen

Peter Goertzen was born in Bolivia in 1964. He grew up with Christian parents in a Mennonite home. The family of 10 children moved to Canada in 1980. In the summer of 1983 Peter asked Jesus Christ to be his Savior and Lord. In 1985 he married his wife Mary, who was also from a Mennonite background. Together they studied Spanish at Rio Grande Bible Institute in Texas.

In 1990 Peter and Mary went to Bolivia with the Evangelical Mennonite Mission Conference (EMMC), working in Spanish-speaking and Mennonite communities. For eleven years they worked with the mission, bought land which they developed and farmed, and worked in the local church.

In 2016 Next Generation Ministries (NGM) asked Peter to help with the work in Bolivia, where he was intro­duced to World Missionary Press.

Peter and Mary are part of a small independent Baptist church. They have three grown children who love the Lord Jesus and two granddaughters. Peter is presently driving truck. Some of his favorite Scripture passages are John 14 and Isaiah 55.


Susan Kirk


Susan Kirk, founder of His Mercy, Inc., will share how WMP scripture booklets have helped her ministry to women. His Mercy, Inc. teaches women how to allow God to change them through the scriptures. In 2012 she received her first semi-truck load of literature which included WMP Scripture booklets.  Pastors are so grateful to receive the literature and come from all areas of Mexico to pick up the booklets.




Vicky Benson (Historical Highlight)

Vicky Benson is the daughter of Watson and Rose Goodman—missionaries in South Africa for 16 years– who returned to the U.S. in 1961 in response to God’s call to print Scripture booklets for the world. Vicky married Jay Benson in 1967. In 1976, they responded to God’s call to join the WMP team, Jay as Assistant to the Presi­dent and Vicky as Treasurer and writer.

In 1988, when Jay was appointed President and Vicky Vice-President, they continued the legacy of Vicky’s par­ents for almost 25 years. In January 2013, Jay was called home to be with the Lord. Vicky continues part-time involvement and shares of seeing God raise up the work, fulfilling the vision He had given her father, and how He continues to enlarge and fulfill our vision as we “trust and obey.”


Del Yoder (Special Music)

Raised in the Amish & Mennonite tradition, Del Yoder had an interest in music at a young age and began ministering in his teen years with his family in nursing homes and a local rescue mission. He played the piano and sang and became involved in the local church music program and prison ministry as well.

He entered full time vocational ministry at the age of twenty, traveling with the Gospel Echoes Team Prison Ministry. After 5 years, an opportunity was given to travel with SonRise Ministries in concerts and revivals for a year. In 1991, God opened the door to leading worship and providing special music in crusades, both overseas as well as in America, through Gospel Revival Ministries.

Del married Dawn Murray in April of 1993 and began serving in Fruitport, Michigan as Youth Pastor/Minister of Music and Lead Pastor. After 15 years, he transitioned into chaplaincy and music therapy with retirees and special needs as well as directing the chapel worship program in a local Christian school.

In 2010, Del returned to the Gospel Echoes Team where he currently serves full-time as support staff at the home office in Goshen, Indiana.
