EMMANUEL PRESS HAS BEEN PROVIDING DISCIPLESHIP MATERIALS TO VARIOUS ORGANIZATIONS ACROSS AFRICA
Since its foundation in 1928, Emmanuel Press has placed gospel Tracts and Discipleship material into prisons. In 2003 Emmanuel Press was invited by the South African Correctional Services to place as much Christian material as possible into the 245 prisons in the Country.
Today Emmanuel Press sends Lessons to prisons in Botswana, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mozambique, Namibia, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Swaziland and Lesotho. Wardens have noticed the improvement in the behavior and attitudes in the inmates who are enrolled in our studies. There are over 20,000 inmates in prisons in sub Saharan Africa who are either taking, or have taken one of our Bible Courses. Many thousands more inmates have completed their studies in the past 5 years.
We regularly receive letters from inmates expressing their gratitude and joy for the peace and forgiveness they have found in Christ. Prisons in Africa are overcrowded, violent and unsanitary; places of hopelessness and despair. Jesus Christ makes such a difference in these lives!
The majority of the prisons in sub Saharan Africa are open to the Gospel; Emmanuel Press is always looking for individuals or churches who would like to adopt the prison in their community. If you are interested in facilitating this important outreach, please contact us and we will provide you with more information.

Emmanuel Press is committed to spreading the Gospel to our local community. Several years ago, the manager of a local restaurant looked for ways that Gospel Tracts could be provided to people who come into town to do their shopping.
At the same time, one of our staff members saw a display stand that was being used by a telephone company to provide information about their products.
Wouldn’t you know it, the stand was the perfect size for our tracts! The telephone company generously donated 25 of these display stands to Emmanuel Press, which have been filled with our Tracts and placed in various shops around town. The shop owners were willing to partner with us in this venture, and all 25 stands full of our tracts are now on display in a number of places such as the florist shop, doctor’s offices, pharmacies, furniture shops, the funeral home and the Christian bookstore and even a bottle store!
Tracts are available in several local languages for anyone to pick up and hopefully respond to the Gospel and enroll in our Discipleship Course.
Please pray with us for the many people who will read and respond to the gospel message by inviting Jesus into their hearts and lives.
