Press For the Childrenof the Philippines
For several years we have been printing literature in the Philippines. In the ICP office in San Fernando, Pompanga, Luzon, thranslatore have prepared press-ready VBS and Sunday school materials. They have taken these books to public printing press in Manila for printing. We have printed and distributed thousands of books and tracts. Over one hundred thousand children and adults have been reach with the message of salvation in Christ. Many public schools use the materials for instruction in values education. This gives opportunity to teach the gospel to those who would not otherwise be reached.
ICP literature has been acclaimed as the very best quality, biblically sound literature available in the Philippines. We have been unable to supply the demand by churches and schools.
While the loacl printshops are doing a high quality job for a reasonable price we have learned from the ICP print shop in Romania that having our own equipment has many advantages.
There are some print jobs which require a smaller number than can be justified by the higher set-up costs of commerical shops. we only need one teacher's manual for about every twenty pupil's quarerlies. We can have much greater control of the time for printing with our own equipment.
We also have been offered an opportunity to print inexpensive Bibles in the Romanian language! Imagine the possibilities we would have to distribute a Bible to every child and adult within the reach of the missionaries there!
The church also has unemployed members who can be trained to operate the press.
