Mission: World Missionary Press, Inc. was founded in 1961 by Watson and Rose Goodman, who had been missionaries in South Africa for almost 16 years. There they discovered widespread hunger for God's Word in the languages of the people. When they returned to the U.S., their goal was to supply 48-page topical Scripture booklets, beginning with "Help From Above," in 300 languages free of charge to nationals and missionaries throughout the world. The goal of 300 languages was reached in January, 2000, with Hmong Daw. WMP now produces about 4.5 million Scripture booklets and Bible studies per month. About twenty titles are available in various languages.
