About the ministry

“I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them” (Isaiah 42:16).”

The Mission for the Visually Impaired helps people who are unable to read normal print. It is manned by volunteers and headquartered in St. Paul, Minn. The mission produces devotional and other materials in Braille, large print, and on cassette tape. These materials are distributed free of charge throughout the world to WELS and non-WELS visually impaired people.

Recipients order materials from a catalog that includes Northwestern Publishing House books and periodicals. Included are the Christian Worship hymnal in Braille, Selective Hymns in large print, Meditations devotions and Forward in Christ magazine on audio cassette.
