Countries in Crisis are More Open to the Gospel than Ever

In countries like Venezuela and Sudan, life remains in crisis after recent political upheaval.

This is true for many other countries around the world. Yet World Missionary Press reports that sometimes, a crisis opens a nation up to hear the Gospel.

Helen Williams from World Missionary Press explains that one of their ministry partners is reporting that the Gospel is spreading in Sudan. “You can hear all of this… negative news about civil unrest, humanitarian crisis and [that] the Sudan situation is desperate. But what they don’t tell you is that there is a hunger for the Word and there [is] a responsiveness,” Williams says.

World Missionary Press sends out free Scripture booklets in over 300 languages to countries all over the world. These booklets explain the Gospel and other Scriptural topics to bring the Word of God to those in need.

Nations in Crisis hear the Gospel

John, a WMP ministry partner, reports that many Sudanese are ready to hear the Gospel right now.

“More and more pathways for the Gospel and discipleship are opening up in Sudan. I am constantly hearing testimonies of Sudanese coming to Christ in unconventional ways. Hundreds have surrendered to Jesus in refugee camps around North Africa,” he says.

Williams adds that for one man, telling Bible stories in a local marketplace led to several giving their lives to Christ. “Many of these Muslims, that came from all walks of life, who happened to come to the market that day had heard the Gospel. [They] came to him later for prayer and more understanding of the Gospel.”
