While 2020 was a very difficult year, Mission Cry saw growth in their ministry. Around 1.3 million people in 24 countries received a Bible or Christian book in the last 12 months. Though they have celebrated all that God has done in the past year, Jason Woolford says Mission Cry recognizes that 2021 will bring its own set of challenges.
One challenge facing ministry right now is getting containers of Bibles and Christian books into countries hostile to the Gospel.
“We’re seeing heightened problems. [Some are] trying to stop the shipments into countries [by] trying to charge more fees,” Woolford says.
Many of those receiving Bibles and books find themselves experiencing persecution and hardships as well. However, God continues to use the materials to reach people.
“[One of our distributors] went into a hospital where there was a Muslim, and he began to minister to [him] and gave him a Bible from one of our shipments,” Woolford says. “That Muslim asked Jesus into his life and is serving God and distributing our materials.”
