Poland (MNN) — Did you know there are more evangelical Christians in Saudi Arabia than in Poland? That’s partly due to the prevalence of cults; according to Operation World, Jehovah’s Witnesses outnumber evangelicals two-to-one.
A widespread lack of biblical resources is another contributing factor. “There’s a great need for literature in Poland; it’s not easily available,” Helen Williams of World Missionary Press (WMP) says.
“Since we have material in Polish, as well as a lot of other languages, we made arrangements to get material to them.”
A ministry in Bulgaria began partnering with World Missionary Press 18 years ago. These believers regularly use WMP Scripture booklets in their outreach projects.
“They said, ‘Can you provide literature in Czech, Lithuanian, Latvian, and Estonian as well? That would really be useful for our missionary work in those areas,” Williams says.
These believers feel a new calling to reach Poland for Christ, and they’re not the only ones.
“Our coordinator in Finland provides material in Poland for contacts that he has developed, and then we have this young man driving around Europe. He loads up his car with literature in all the languages of where he’s going to be, and Poland’s on his list as well,” Williams says.
Gospel workers get tools from World Missionary Press for free. WMP can offer these materials because believers like you underwrite production costs. See giving options here.
“God is speaking to them, in their language, words of hope. That’s what the literature does – it speaks to the heart,” Williams says.
“You sit and you read the Word of God, and God speaks through His Spirit to you.”
