Ministries around the world are affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, but they’re not letting that stop them from getting God’s Word to those in need.
World Missionary Press (WMP) is just one organization whose humanitarian and outreach efforts have been made difficult by this pandemic. “So much of what we provide for is open evangelism, house to house and street evangelism, and in many, many countries that has come to a halt,” said Hellen Williams with WMP. “But there are opportunities even in those lockdown situations.”
Through feeding programs and distribution of other supplies, they have still been able to evangelize to those “that might not have received otherwise.”
“That’s one of the wonderful things about the Scripture booklets; they’re small, they’re just the Word of God, [and] they can slip in with these other little packets and be distributed,” she continued. “They are providing booklets and putting them in with the food and getting them into homes.”
One of the biggest issues WMP has encountered is with shipping out supplies and the limits countries put on imports during the pandemic. Williams said many ports are either closed or jammed, so openings are limited.
