A Report on Ministry Translation and Distribution in Africa

“In the Lord’s full-time service the publication work is the top area because the publications are long lasting and widespread, able to touch people, and convey a deep impression.”
(CWWL, 1984, vol. 5, p. 224)

Currently, there are four entities in Africa under the service of the Africa Ministry Depot (AMD) that carry out the burden of spreading the ministry, including two publication centers in the east and two in the west.

Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, and Nigeria on the map


Amana Ethiopia Printing and Publishing (AEPP)

Ethiopia has more than 118 million people, seventy percent of whom are young people. Amharic is the most widely-spoken language and is also a working language. Oromo is the second most widely-spoken language, which more than forty million people speak. Currently, Amana Ethiopia Printing and Publishing is finalizing the translation and editing of two books: The All-inclusive Christ (into Amharic and Oromo) and The Knowledge of Life (into Amharic). Compared with the hunger of the young people in the country, these books will be just a crumb. We are anticipating that the Lord will gain many through these publications.

In addition, Amana Ethiopia has two social media pages and messaging groups, one for Amharic speakers and one for Oromo speakers. Each week we post a short video message in both languages as well as some daily nourishment. Currently, the posts are reaching thousands of people. Thus far, 296 people from the Amharic social media page and 200 from the Oromo page have given us their contact information for further fellowship.


  • A brother enjoyed the messages we posted on our social media page. He contacted us to know more about the ministry. After we gave his contact number to one of the brothers living in his city, they had more fellowship. The brother studied the Bible in a theology school. After meeting us in person during his break time, he wanted to arrange a meeting with another two hundred young people that we may introduce the ministry to them.
  • Another brother is from a city that borders Kenya. He also enjoyed our posts on social media and contacted us by phone. He has been reading Watchman Nee’s books. He wants us to meet a group of around twenty people with whom he has Bible studies in his home. But because of the snipers fighting against the government, we could not go there.
  • Another two brothers called us, and we met them in person. Both are preachers, and one is studying theology. They said that they were touched by our social media posts and are eager to learn more from the ministry.

Prayer Burdens

  • That the Lord may gain many more seekers through social media.
  • That the Lord may bless the translation work in both the Amharic and Oromo languages.
  • That the Lord may subdue the enemy under our feet so that we may go peacefully to these seekers for the distribution of the publication. “Now the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly” (Rom. 16:20).


Ghana Gospel Bookroom (GGB)

Ghana Gospel Bookroom (GGB) bears the burden to distribute and promote ministry books in Ghana. We have a gospel studio and a library. We also use social media and the GGB website to promote and make the ministry books available to seekers, pastors, and the general public.

In December 2019 we received a shipment of over 300,000 books from LSM, which were sorted, counted, and made available for sale and free distribution to the saints and hungry ones in Ghana. In October 2021 a little over 80,000 books were transferred from AMD Ghana to Nigeria for the spread of the ministry across West Africa.

Publication and Promotion of the Ministry

In August 2019 AMD started printing The Holy Word for Morning Revival. In addition, Ministry Digest (vol. 1, nos. 1 and 2), The Overcoming Life, and The Breaking of the Outer Man and the Release of the Spirit were printed in 2019 and 2020.

Due to the restrictions of the pandemic, GGB started promoting ministry books online via social media beginning in April 2020. This is an excellent means to reach Christians and seekers in Ghana.

Distribution of the Ministry

In March 2020 over 150,000 books were distributed to the seeking students and teachers in the senior high schools and universities in twelve cities across six regions in southern Ghana. To meet the need for shepherding the contacts, several serving ones moved to Jasikan and Cape Coast for propagation and increase. On October 17, 2021, the church in Jasikan was established, and on October 24, 2021, we witnessed the establishment of the church in Cape Coast. Praise the Lord!

Participation in a Book Fair

GGB participated in the 18th Ghana International Book Fair from August 26 through August 29, 2021, at the Accra National Theatre. We contacted a good number of people and gave them the ministry. Over 500 people passed by our booth, with some stopping to make inquiries and to purchase books.

Prayer Burdens

  • That the Lord would remind all the recipients from the book fair to read the ministry books and would shine on them to see the divine economy of God.
  • That the Lord would propagate His life into more people for His testimony in Ghana, and that more golden lampstands would be raised up through book distribution.

High Peak Truths Publishers Kenya Limited (HPTP)

High Peak Truths Publishers Kenya Limited (HPTP) was registered in March 2021 for the literature service of the ministry in Kenya. Living Stream Ministry has granted permission to translate and publish the seven Rhema books. We have started translating Basic Elements of the Christian Life and hope the translation of all seven books will be completed by the end of 2021.

We currently have ninety-six hymns translated into Swahili, one of the official languages of Kenya and a common language spoken in south-central and southeastern Africa. Our target is to translate a total of 200 hymns into Swahili for the saints’ enjoyment.

Prayer Burden

  • That many saints would pick up the burden to meet the needs in the translation and distribution work.


Amana Literature Ministry (ALM)

Amana Literature Ministry (ALM) is a registered non-governmental organization in Nigeria for the publication and distribution of the ministry. The name has been approved by the government. A 40-foot container full of ministry books is now being transferred from Accra to Lagos for distribution at the end of October 2021.

Prayer Burden

  • That the saints in Nigeria could have a proper environment to travel in Nigeria for the spread of the high peak truth of the divine revelation.
