“He said to them, ‘Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation’” (Mark 16:15).

Multi-language Publications (MLP), an arm of WELS World Missions, has printed more than 2.9 million items in more than 52 languages to date. Today, MLP has incorporated audio, video and on-line training resources to its offerings. The MLP Christian literature library is available to assist and augment outreach for churches in fellowship with Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod and for use in places where WELS does not have resident missionaries. The majority of MLP products are evangelism and Bible Study materials to be used by anyone who sees a need for ministering to others in Christ.


WELS Multi-Language Publications assists in the production of confessional Christian literature and other mass-media in the languages of countries where WELS is working and in other areas or language groups where the synod does not have an official presence.
