The Jesus Film Project is distributing the gospel in more than 1600 translations worldwide. Many of the translations are in languages that native Muslims understand. Millions of videos are downloaded on many different electronic devices each year.
There is a pastor working from his home, doing Bible Studies with Muslims in North Africa and the Middle East. He has 6.3 million people connected to his ministry – most of them Muslims.

Two other ministries have each 1,2 and 1,3 million followers. One website in the Middle East gets 700 000 hits per day. Then there are people that have chat-rooms and smaller groups of followers. Many groups are working in this field, with much fruit.
