Moses Born Again in Malawi
Welcome to our first WEI promotional website monthly newsletter. We hope and pray that this little monthly newsletter will be a source of encouragement and inspiration as we highlight teachers, students, and related stories generated through the WEI ministry. This monthly publication will not replace our larger quarterly “WEI UPDATE” newsletter which is distributed by email and postal service to thousands of our supporters within our worldwide network of Brothers and Sisters in Christ.
2020 has been one of those very unusual years which many of us have never experienced and hopefully will never again experience in our lifetimes. For many, it has been a year of loneliness, anxiety, despair, and grief. Yet with all the suffering and isolation, we have experienced due to the pandemic, God is in control and we can be sure of His constant presence and eternal promises.
This year as I have pondered our unusual circumstances finding no relief in human explanations, I have turned for comfort to this passage in Isaiah 55 where the Lord speaks through the prophet:
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
As we prayerfully and eagerly look forward to 2021 with the hope of a return to more normal life routines, we give thanks to God as always for the opportunities 2020 provided us. Little hidden treasures during times of uncertainty. Because of the pandemic, more Christians found the time to become WEI teachers and began sharing the truth of God’s word and their faith with students from every country of the world. Likewise, individuals from all over the world found themselves in the same isolated situation, so we had more Internet student registrations than in all previous years. To God be the glory.
Below is a year-on-year comparative review of the many souls from all over the world who were in some way touched by the truth of God’s word through the WEI materials. This growth would not have been possible without the dedication of our over 700 loyal volunteer teachers. We give all thanks and praise to God for all these new 2020 opportunities He graciously provided WEI.
We are deeply thankful for all our prayerful and financial supporters. Without your generous gifts, this non-profit Great Commission ministry would not be possible. Thank you!
May the Lord bless you
and keep you;
May the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you;
May the Lord turn his face toward you
and give you peace
