Malawi (MNN) — Recently, Mission Cry partners heard from Christians in the Southeastern African country of Malawi. They asked for Bibles to be delivered to them.
Mission Cry sends used Bibles and Christian books all over the world in shipping containers.
Jason Woolford says, “I told them we really couldn’t send it there. It’s landlocked. We don’t have anybody that can help release a container.”
But then, the unexpected happened. Woolford says, “Literally two days later, we got a container application. And it came from somebody in Malawi, asking for a container. They had the ability to clear it.”
Not only that, but the request came from the same area as the request for Bibles. Woolford says, “So we took that as a sign from God, and we sent that container. It’s been distributed. But the need is so great there. It’s a country that people forget about because of its size. But God hasn’t forgotten.”
“And since then, we’ve sent two more sea containers to Malawi this year.”
You can be a part of this ministry. Mission Cry gets their Bibles and Christian books through donations. Woolford says, “That starts with the person that’s listening right now, going through their house and saying, ‘Oh my gosh, I have all of these extra Bibles or Christian books.’”
You can also help sponsor the shipping containers. Each container costs $11,000.
This year, Mission Cry hopes to reach 1.5 million people in 24 countries with the story of Jesus. Pray the containers will reach ports, clear them, and be distributed successfully.
