Kingdom work by LMW in 2017.
“But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.” James 3:17.
Thank you for your commitment to pray for LMW and our mission to equip pastors for gospel-centered ministry worldwide. 2017 was a great year as we celebrated our 25th anniversary, reached thousands of pastors in China, Argentina, Africa – all over the world – with The Preacher’s Outline & Sermon Bible® in printed and digital formats.
Please pray that LMW may enter wisely into the new year, producing fruit for God’s Kingdom by providing pastors and leaders with quality biblical resources that transform lives as people understand God’s Word and experience the grace of Christ.
Don’t take our word for it. Just read some of our reviews. The Preacher’s Outline & Sermon Bible® is one of the top-selling world-class biblical resources for powerful gospel preaching.
“Ever since I received these materials, my studies, preaching, and teaching have been changed; not me alone, but other pastors in my community as well because I organized Pastor’s Fellowship and we meet every two weeks to study and learn The Preacher’s Outline & Sermon Bible® (POSB) together. . . Every leader around the world, both clergy and laymen needs this: the POSB so that they can understand God’s Word and present God’s message with more Clarity.”
Pastor Isaac Asamoah Kwarteng, Ghana
I have been a frequent user of the POSB and the other Outline Bible resources for over 20 years. All of the materials are simple, yet profound in their usefulness in preparing solid and practical Bible lessons. Nothing compares to the POSB when examined with similar commentaries. It has everything a serious Bible student needs to discover the great spiritual nuggets of truth. . . It truly is set apart from all of the rest! (and the Lord willing, made easily accessible to everyone, in every part of the world, who desires to teach and preach the Word of God.)
Dr. Denny Bates, Spartanburg, SC
“The Preacher’s Outline & Sermon Bible® is so thorough! When you find the scripture you want to preach on, all the truth is right there. It’s not like a commentary – it’s facts and supporting scripture, and it eliminates the need for extra research. These books help me to really love the Word because everything is right there. It gives me great peace. I also use the Teacher’s Outline and Study Bible, the Believer’s Handbook, and the Minister’s Handbook. I have found these to be great gifts for students – they grow!”
Pastor Tammy Mitchell, Manchester, NJ
“I love The Preacher’s Outline & Sermon Bible®. I use it every week. I am blessed to have the complete set. “
Pastor Imogene Cross-Best, Lakewood, NJ
“An entire theological library that is biblically and theologically trustworthy. I highly recommend your material.”
Pastor Bill Monroe, Florence, SC
With over 400 million native speakers, Spanish is the second most spoken language in the world, behind Chinese. It is the primary language of most of South and Central America and Spain. It is also the language of choice for a large part of the populations in the USA, Australia, Island nations, and Europe.
More than 90% of the people in Latin America are Christians, and this number is anticipated to grow by 130 million over the next 30 years*. Many of the next generation of Christian leaders are coming from Spanish-speaking countries. These leaders are crying out for quality, theologically sound biblical resources to help them share the gospel message. About 90% of the pastors serving areas throughout Latin America have no opportunity to attend seminary – or any type of Bible classes. They are hungry for resources and training in Spanish that will deepen their understanding of the Bible, empowering them to share the gospel faithfully.
In Argentina, the government made a significant investment in improved internet infrastructure. This increased access led the Argentine Bible Society to seek a digital learning platform to deliver quality biblical resources to pastors across their country. LMW has partnered with them to develop “Teleios”, a Spanish-language version of Lystra Global, a free online library for pastors.

Teleios was presented at The First International Congress of the Bible in Buenos Aires November 15-20. We anticipate that more than 1,000 pastors will sign up on Teleios within 6 months, giving them access to Biblia de Bosquejos y Sermones (The Preacher’s Outline & Sermon Bible®) plus other books and videos developed specifically for the Argentine Bible Society.
Please pray for the pastors who will be receiving these new resources in their native language. Biblia de Bosquejos y Sermones includes the entire New Testament, plus Genesis and Exodus. As we are putting these resources in their hands, we are also praying for resources to complete the Spanish translation of the remaining volumes of The Preacher’s Outline & Sermon Bible® into Spanish. Can you help us in this effort? Visit lmw.org/give, and select “Teleios” for your donation. Thank you!
