Scripture shipments top 50 million in first quarter of 2021

By March 22, 2021

International (MNN) — As uncertainty rises, so does the global demand for Scripture. More about that here.

Helen Williams of World Missionary Press describes where they’re seeing the biggest spikes: “We’re currently printing about 10 million [for] Brazil; we cover almost every country in Central and Southern America,” she says.

“A great part of our material goes into Africa. Many of those countries are open and hungry for the Word.”

Between October 2020 and the start of this year, “we’ve sent out about 51 million pieces of literature all over the world,” Williams continues.

“In those four months, we sent to Ecuador, Mexico, Guatemala, Tanzania, Haiti, Democratic Republic of the Congo, India, Thailand and Liberia, Burundi, Botswana, Gabon, Canada, Belize, Puerto Rico, Costa Rica, Peru, Chile, Zimbabwe, Honduras, Paraguay, and Lebanon.”

World Missionary Press Scripture booklets and Bible studies are the tools Gospel workers need to reach people for Christ. You can help send them here.

“Each of our booklets costs four cents apiece to print so if people want to donate, it doesn’t have to be a large amount [to] help us buy paper, and ink, and shipping. If people are in our region, we rely on our volunteers,” Williams says.

You can use the prompts listed alongside this article to intercede for WMP, or pray as field updates come in, she adds.

“We really depend on prayer because we know that this is the Lord’s work.”
