An Formidable Purpose
From 2019 till 2038, Each House for Christ is ramping up outreach to make the group’s title a actuality. Named the OIKOS Initiative, this effort requires assist, volunteers, and on the bottom motion. From the start, Each House for Christ knew they’d want the assist of the physique of Christ and their long-time associate World Missionary Press.
“They took quite a bit of time to plan this and lay it out. And then when it came to implementation and introducing it to their people, they wanted world missionary press to be involved in those discussions because…they told us, ‘we’re going to need more material and we’re going to need it on a continuing basis,’” says Helen Williams of World Missionary Press.
World Missionary Press will provide the supplies and literature to these going out into the sector ministering and establishing church buildings. The monumental process would require continued manufacturing of those supplies over the following 20 years. Efforts are already underway and shipments of supplies have already been delivered to keen fingers.
“I get emails almost every day from one of them around the world saying, ‘okay, when is our next shipment coming? We’re down to not having much to use, and we’ve got people waiting.’ And so they’re really ready to go out and they’re covering their area, their geographical area that they’ve been assigned, and they need this material. So it’s a big challenge. But it’s great to be part of because, you know, the Scriptures are very clear that if we don’t have that vision, if we don’t have God’s heart, the harvest…will not be reaped as it should and we believe that the harvest is there and ready,” Williams says.
At present, World Missionary Press has 19 open orders for 20 million booklets which might be wanted on the bottom. It’s not a matter of printing a number of million booklets; many alternative languages are wanted, so shipments should be specialised. The group prints Scripture booklets and Bible research in near 350 languages.
