Right now, several projects are moving into their final stages of production.
In Poland, the Polish edition of the Relentless book is about to go to print. Ten thousand copies of this multimedia Leaders Pack are being produced for distribution to leaders and emergent leaders across the country.
In Istanbul, Turkey, 2,500 copies of the same challenging resources in Turkish are now complete and are in the process of being distributed.
In India, 18,000 copies of the Tamil edition of Relentless have just left the printers and are now being assembled with corresponding DVDs for distribution. These resources will be circulated throughout the southernmost states ofIndiaand to church leaders and Bible schools across Sri Lanka.
In Dhaka, Bangladesh, presses are printing Bengali versions of Relentless and The Bait of Satan for leaders who are hungry for anointed teaching.
In the past twelve months, Messenger International has produced more than two million printed, audio, and video resources in over 38 languages, with completed or ongoing projects in some 28 countries. Projects like these have brought together translators, editors, coordinators, printers, and technicians from six continents, together producing over 250,000 books and in excess of 450,000 DVDs.
This work is nothing short of extraordinary, and it is has sparked church growth and unity across nations. All this came from a God-given vision to see teams worldwide placing dynamic resources into the hands of leaders in developing and closed nations—areas where political constraints or financial limitations hinder believers from finding resources that will teach, inspire, and challenge them.
All of these resources have also been added to Cloud Library, Messenger International’s free foreign language resource site at CloudLibrary.org. It is an archive of resources that can be freely downloaded, streamed, and virally shared across the Internet with believers everywhere. Vietnamese Christians in Canada, Urdu churches in Dubai, and Chinese believers in Mongolia are all able to freely access these life-giving, growth-inspiring materials. With over 1,600 resources in more than 70 languages, and with downloads from over 170 nations, Cloud Library is impacting the global church with powerful resources.
Everywhere I go, the demand is for more! In many closed nations—despite persecution, opposition, and restrictions—church growth is outstripping the number of trained leaders. Developing leaders depend on resources and teaching. Our goal, therefore, is to maximize the messages God has given to Messenger International and to multiply the reach of every teaching among the nations. Through printed resources; online libraries; and satellite, web, and terrestrial television, we are inspiring a generation of leaders to a greater walk with God.
Already teams are gearing up for the 2014-2015 resource distribution “season.” Our goal is to create in excess of three million printed, audio, and video resources in forty-two languages. These resources will directly impact 56 countries in the next twelve months!
No country is too far, no people too isolated. Where there is a demand and a passion for more of God, we will reach out to change lives and build the kingdom! This is an awesome vision inspired by the Word of God and empowered by the Holy Spirit; yet it would be impossible for us to do this alone. Every book or resource given, every leader touched, every soul inspired is the result of a global team of faithful workers joining with the dedication, prayer support, and financial gifts of our dear partners. Your contributions are so necessary to undergird and carry out this work. Thank you!
Yours for the nations, and for each and every believer who we can together inspire for Him!
