"In the Muslim areas in which we work, the Muslim hierarchy had organized an army of Muslims with an order to bring all Christian converts back into the fold of Mohammedism. This has resulted in severe persecution for many of the converts, so severe that their lives were threatened and their Bibles were burnt. Some were badly beaten and forced to leave their homes after all their personal possessions were confiscated because of the dynamic confession of Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour of the whole world before the Muslim teachers and leaders. Beloved Jerry Kingery, you have the Bibles which millions crave. You have the word which (the) Saviour gave, You have the truth which alone can save. Our solemn need now is to provide these dear converts, whose Bibles were burnt and personal belonging confiscated, with some boxes of Holy Bibles." NIGERIA

"Thanks for the Bible Foundation Ministry that the Lord has entrusted into your leadership. Thanks for the vision you have at least to give used Bibles to those believers who have no Bibles. Keep on! We are supporting you by our daily prayers...Therefore as I have already mentioned in my first letter, we are displaced and most of us are refugees here in Uganda. We have lost almost all the necessary materials for our personal use and the Lord's work, due to the civil war in the Sudan. There is GREAT NEED of Bibles among the displaced people in the camps. Kindly we beg more used Bibles. People very much like the Word of God (Bibles)." UGANDA

"Thank you for the five (5) Holy Bibles that arrived at our end. It is true that the harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. We must be fighters for the poor and the under privileged. Let us rise up to reach out (to) the peasant families in remote and inaccessible villages in rural communities. Five people got converted and were baptized last week. First class thief got converted and now under leadership training to go in for other thieves for the Lord.
Peasant farmer's students are serious confronting me for used Bibles. New converted women about 10 in number are also demanding for Bibles. Look when converted and can't get the Bible then it means our labouring is going back to square one. Help us to make the work over here effective. Let us change our filthy society. Ordained murder (executioner) is listening to Gospel daily and also demanded for Bible. The paramount chief also called on us for Bible. School children are eager to possess New Testaments for their daily study. Really there is a great need. Help us to populate heaven." GHANA

The following two articles came from the monthly leaflet of World Ministry Press.

 "For the last 23 years I've been part of a team that brings thousands of WMP Scripture booklets and Bibles to the Chinese in the underground persecuted church of China.  Many times our team has divided into groups of four and gone out late at night with WMP booklets.  We were sent out into all parts of the city of 17 million people, where we placed hundreds of Scripture booklets.  When I first went to China, we were able to pass the booklets out in the middle of the day.  We were swamped with the Chinese circling us, reaching out for booklets.  Once they read the title, 'How to know God' they begged us for more.  The desire for God's Word is amazing."

In Bangladesh I met a man who had been a Muslim believer all his life of 40 plus years, yet he knew something was missing in his heart.  One day he was walking along and looked down and found a Scripture booklet and picked it up.  After reading it, he accepted Christ as His Savior.  Needless to say, his life has been completely turned around.

Many of the believers in Vietnam are persecuted.  Passing out  WMP Scripture booklets is wonderful way to reach even more souls than they could do one on one.  In Vietnam, they love WMP Scripture booklets and so do I.  What a privilege to volunteer at WMP and to be a part of sending out God's Word across the world.  ___Pat S. volunteer at WMP.


Individuals, churches, and groups are encouraged to help get Bibles and Scripture portions to hungry hearts everywhere.


 A missionary wrote to me several years ago with this plea: 

 "Send us Bibles, new, used, overruns, parts, pieces, mispelled words, ink spots, water spots, broken bindings, and in any version, we don't care.   We have souls coming to the Lord by the thousands and we have one Bible per 5,000 converts".

 Won't you please help now?



"Now I have Bible in my hand and I believe it is God's living words; I am so happy.  I would like to thank Lord and VOM, in Nepal.    This is our most precious gift in our life.  Thank you VOM for such a wonderful gift.  It is very difficult for us to buy Bible.  Now I have Bible and I can read Bible wherever and whenever". Nepal.      Michle Chepang, Bible recipient in Nepal.

I received this email from a Pastor in Nigeria.  He was looking around on the computer and found our website.  Since then, he has been emailing me.   He has been requesting Bibles and I was able to send him 36 + 24 and this was his response when he got them.  Please pray for Pastor Bill and his congregation and pray for us as well, that we may be able to send him more Bibles.  

     ( I do not have a system in place to mail Bibles to other countries.  It is way to expensive and I, being a staff of one, just can't afford it. )

      Subject: need for MORE Bibles

It was wonderful receiving the Bibles you sent.

We freely distributed them among the new converts.  They were so happy and so

thankful to you.  One of the new converts, Brother Able, gave a testimony that since he gave

his life to Christ, he has not gotten an opportunity to have a personal copy of the Holy Bible.

And now God has done a great thing in his life by using you to send a copy of the Bible to him.

The new converts were so grateful for the Bibles that they took drums and trumpets, they sang

and danced around the whole village and market square testifying of the good thing you did for

them.  Other villagers come out from their houses and when they heard this testimony of a free

Bible they were amazed.  I wish you were here to witness this happiness.  These copies of the

Holy Bible has strengthened the faith of the brethren.  They have gone out to evangelize and

save the unsaved hearts to Christ.

 God is aware of the work you are doing for Him by helping those who could not afford a copy of

the Holy Bible for themselves.  I tell you this, your reward is near and bountiful, both in Heaven and

on earth.

 We love you so much and once again, thank you for the Bibles and please help with more Bibles,

since the Bibles you sent were not enough for total distribution among our saints.

Please email him at the email address above and encourage him and his congregation.  He would love to hear from you.


I received the following email, Easter week of 2018.  Please pray for Brother Matthew and his followers that they may continue on in the service of our Lord.  I sent this emailing to a Christian distribution center so that they could help him and his congregation.
