Philippines (MNN/WMI) — For World Mission, 2015 has been a year of success. As the year winds down, the ministry is on track to accomplish the largest annual Treasure distribution in the ministry’s history: 30,000.
The Treasure is a handheld, solar-powered audio Scripture device. World Mission has access to over 5,000 languages and currently has 185 New Testaments recorded and ready to be placed on the Treasure.
According to surveys taken by World Mission, over four million people will hear the Gospel this year, most for the first time, from Treasures. A big part of World Mission reaching this milestone is its ministry to the Philippines.
Here are a couple of quotes posted on World Mission’s Facebook page from its national partner in the Philippines:
“The Treasure Bible distributions which help in our church planting have extensively reached beyond our own borders, through our partners on different islands and tribal groups; the Badjaos which are sea gypsies, the Tausog who live where the Abu Sayaff Muslim terrorists are making much violence in the name of their religion and greed. This is in the Sulu islands which [are] at the western most tip of the Philippines.”
The Treasure audio Bibles have also reached the hands of the communist commanders in central Bukidnon and Davao Oriental and the Agusan town of Bangonay.
“One Mamanwa communist commander has been able to hear the Word of God for the very first time. Through the pastors we partner with, we had been able to extend our outreaches, crossing denominational and tribal boundaries.”
Can you keep this ministry in your prayers? Pray that World Mission would continue covering the globe in Treasures and that people would respond by giving their lives to Christ.
