It’s an exciting time to follow Christ in southeastern Africa. “I want your listeners [and readers] to know that the Lord is working,” Helen Williams of World Missionary Press (WMP) says.
“God is moving, and there’s more work to be done.”
Last month, Williams met with dozens of pastors and Christian leaders at a conference in Zambia. “There were directors from South Africa, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, the whole area,” she says.
World Missionary Press partners with Every Home for Christ to supply local leaders in Africa with Scripture booklets and other tools for ministry. Williams says that these believers “couldn’t say enough” about how much the material and WMP’s partnership meant to them.
“Several [leaders] said, ‘We couldn’t do what we do without it, particularly during this pandemic.’”
“This is Africa’s time.”
Traditional door-to-door evangelism didn’t work well due to various lockdowns and restrictions. Believers took a new approach to reach people for Christ.
“They found so many different ways: putting [the material] together with food supplies, sending it through the mail, getting involved in community events, and having the material available,” Williams says.
Each leader had a different approach, but the responses were the same. “The (spiritual) hunger they’re [seeing]; there’s an energy to do the work because the doors are open, the hearts are open,” Williams says.
