Time is Short
For over 25 years, we have been producing and providing The Most Important Story family of materials for outreach around the world. For most of those years, we have been providing them freely as partners in ministry provided the funds to do so. We also made any and all of our materials available to any ministry that wanted to use them. They paid for that use, and we managed all production.
However, we are now led of the Lord to turn this rather typical ministry publishing model upside down. We still are making everything available for everyone but instead of us managing the materials and producing them for the ministry world, we are giving everything away.
Now, any ministry, church or even individual can access any of our Most Important Story print files for free and print them for free distribution anywhere in the world.
Why, you may ask?
Because I believe our time is short, very short.
As Francis Shaeffer asked, “How Should We Then Live?”
In looking at Matthew 24:14, it says, “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.”
So, what is our role? Or more specifically, what is my role?
Over 25 years ago, the Lord gave me the vision for a Gospel presentation designed to reach the children of the world. The result was the creation of The Most Important Story. It has reached far and wide and surpassed our wildest expectations, having penetrated nearly all the countries of the world with some 93+ million copies.
I have always been very aware of my sacred responsibility to steward this version of the inspired Word of God. Just as Paul says in Thessalonians, I have been “entrusted with the Gospel”. We all have been but these past months and then very recently, I have been asking the Lord what He would have me specifically do at this point in history.
Therefore, my wife and I, as stewards of The Most Important Story, have determined that we must release this great Gospel booklet to the world. Although we have welcomed working with any and every ministry and denomination these past 25 years to partner in the distribution of The Most Important Story, it is time that everyone has complete and free access to the materials.
We will be providing print files for all the language files in the immediate. Any ministry or individual will be able to access these files anywhere in the world and freely print whatever they choose. We will not charge anything for this privilege.
As well, all the MIS files are available online as digital books that can be read and shared freely.
We will continue to provide The Most Important Story in English and Spanish in the US and Canada at a fixed price of .50 cents per copy. Although these files are also available freely, we recognize that for churches and ministries to obtain them economically, we must assist with volume production.
We will be providing materials in additional formats in the coming days, but we just want to notify the Church worldwide that this is what we have been called to do to assist in the proclamation of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Please pray for this initiative, for wisdom and for God’s continued leading.
Thank you and God bless you!
