Arant
Ron and Marie Arant - World Wide Tract - Bessemer, Alabama
Summary
Ron Arant, Sr., Marie, his wife, and Paul, their youngest son, operate this Ministry to the Glory of Jesus Christ. The only reason for their being at WWTM is to produce the Word of God in tract form. This gives born again Christians an effective tool to witness to men, women, boys and gir

The World Wide Tract Ministry was started in March 1954 by Max Prouty, a newly converted coffee salesman, who, along with some new brothers in Christ, wanted to do more for Christ their King than just warm the pews of His church. On May 1st 1986 Bro. Prouty went to be with Jesus whereupon Bro. Ron Arant, Sr. became superintendent. In March 1990 the Ministry was moved to 1925 3rd Ave. North in Bessemer, about 17 miles south west of Tuscaloosa Avenue. On the day the Board of Trustees was signing the papers for the purchase of the property in Bessemer, our Lord Jesus led a lady and her daughter to donate a total of $6,000.00. This allowed the building to be paid for in full plus left $1,000.00 toward the moving expenses. To Jesus be all the glory for this. ls that Jesus came to save sinners by simple child-like faith in Him.

At present WWTM prints in 17 different languages. Tracts are shipped all over the world but many tracts are carried by groups and individuals . This saves the Ministry thousands of dollars in shipping. Most of the tracts printed by WWTM will go to missionaries or churches overseas.

All signed tracts deter-mined by us to be from a new believer are sent a packet of literature to help them grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus. Where it is possible new believers are referred to a local church.

We have, on average, about 55 individuals and churches that regularly support WWTM. Their gifts, along with the contributions of those ordering tracts, have averaged between $60,000 to $65,000 per year. These gifts pay for everything concerning the Ministry, which includes workers salaries.

Simmeonsson
Roland and Sandra Simmeonsson - BIMI - Retired
Summary
Roland was born in China 1935, (parents and grandparents were missionaries from Sweden), saved at the age of 12, and surrendered to God’s call at 13. He graduated from Tennessee Temple University in January 1958 and arrived in Japan with his wife Sandra six months later with one trunk, two suitcases and $40.00 cash and four supporting churches. In the ledger of our account book they have inscribed, I Samuel 7:12 “ EBENEZER…Hitherto hath the Lord helped us.” And God has been true to His promise all these years.

After language school in Tokyo, they began their work in Gamagori 1960 located in Aichi Prefecture (Central Japan). Gamagori was their home for 40 years, Gamagori B.C. was established and out of that church seven other churches have come into being. Central Japan Bible School (Presently evening classes only) and a Christian Cemetery called “Resurrection Garden”, serving several churches, are also part of their legacy. Their main thrust however, has always been church-planting, and they believe that church-planting is embodied in the Great Commission. 

After 50 years in Japan, the Simeonssons moved to Hawaii in February of 2009. God opened up a door for them to be part of a Japanese Church planting ministry together with a younger Japanese couple sent out from a Baptist Church in Japan. Japanese and those of Japanese descent make up the second largest ethnic group in Hawaii. They are grateful to the many churches that make it possible for them to continue sharing the Gospel to the Japanese in their language.

Yeargin
Joe and Linda Yeargin - Missions to Military - North Carolina
Summary
Joe and Linda Yeargin have been serving with Missions To Military since 1978 in Arizona and North Carolina. The Lord placed on their hearts to minister to the military while attending Southeastern Bible College in Birmingham, Alabama. They remembered vividly their 8 years in the Air Force not living for the Lord and knew of spiritual needs among the military that were not being met. When they surrendered our lives to Christ in 1968, the Lord opened many doors for service and to prepare them for the ministry they now share together. Over these years, it has been their joy to minister through Military Christian Centers and several local churches. Joe and Linda have witnessed the change in many young lives by the Grace of God. “…immediately we endeavoured to go…… assuredly gathering that the Lord had called us for to preach the gospel unto them.” (Acts 16:10)
