Missionaries Sent Out


120,000 western missionaries work in the Developing World.
225,000 indigenous missionaries work at a fraction of the cost. This trend is set to continue.


  • Bible translation for the unreached remains a priority and is largely by Westerners.
  • Radio and Television is reaching millions in countries where persecution is rife.
  • Short-term mission meets a demand, and helps educate the West about the dire needs of the REST.
  • With the rapid growth of the church, millions of pastors urgently need training to prevent the spread of heresy. Many Western organisations are training pastors by visiting them on short stints.
BOOKS are cheap, effective, long-term missionaries penetrating to the remotest areas:
“The printed page is a missionary that can go anywhere and do so at minimal cost. It enters closed lands and reaches all strata of society. It does not grow weary. It needs no furlough. It lives longer than any missionary. It never gets ill. It penetrates through the mind to the heart and conscience. It has and is producing results everywhere. It has often lain dormant yet retained its life and bloomed years later.”– Samuel Zwemer
“Books written for the Master and his truth, though buried in obscurity are sure of a resurrection. …You can not kill a good man’s work. … Deeds done in the power of the Spirit are eternal. … Oh, the joy of knowing, when you are gone, the truth you preached is living still.”– Charles Spurgeon

Books in vernacular are vital to meet this need.
e-books will begin to meet the need by stealth
The Lord Jesus’ command still stands. ‘Go into all the world making disciples’.

We rely on the Holy Spirit to guide us into strategic, needy areas.
We rely on the Lord’s provision through His people to meet that need.

The church in the REST is desperate for good Bible teaching. We can share the WEST’s rich heritage.
British publishers have printed at least 55 million reformed Christian books in the last 50 years. Add to that the American super market of 100’s of millions

What a heritage we own!









Will the WEST Resource the REST

Christian Books Worldwide is an agency that is efficiently penetrating the dark, remote places and some closed countries with encouraging material for deprived Christians in the Developing World. We appreciate any help in this strategic work.

One missionary said:

“Give us the tools and we will stop the march of Islam.”

Only the Gospel will do that.

Some pastors in training described our Swahili books as:

“Weapons of Mass Construction.”
