Scripture booklets change lives in Eswatini

By January 23, 2023

Eswatini (MNN) — Eswatini faces one of the most severe HIV epidemics in the world. At mobile medical clinics run by The Luke Commission, every patient receives the hope of Christ.

Government officials asked these believers to “play a major role” in Eswatini’s COVID vaccination program. The Luke Commission gives each patient a World Missionary Press Scripture booklet, but they ran out of material last year.

“We didn’t have time to put it (the order) on a production schedule and take three months to get it ready. So, we put together 462,000 pieces, sent it out, and they got it within weeks,” WMP’s Helen Williams says.

The Gospel seeds sown during this outreach are bearing fruit today. Partners at The Luke Commission tell Williams:

“As we’ve been able to share the Good News of Jesus Christ, others have come to know Him more deeply and intimately through the material. We want to thank you for the beautiful way you continue to love and support the kingdom of Eswatini with the wonderful WFP Scripture booklets.”

WMP is preparing another shipment for Eswatini right now. “It’ll be a 20-foot container with about 765,000 pieces of material in English and Swati. It’s on the floor now [getting ready] to be shipped out in possibly a month,” Williams says.

When you help cover the shipping costs, someone in Eswatini gets to meet Jesus. Connect with WMP to give online here.

“The shipping from here to South Africa is getting more expensive. The costs are almost three times what it was the last time we sent something,” Williams says.
