In each of the following countries Soul Winning Leadership Conferences were conducted.  We praise the Lord for ALL that He has done.  We also are very thankful for each person that had a part in giving and / or going.  The following results are not that of a man, but of the Lord and many servants.  To God be the glory, great things He has done.

International World Wide Evangelism was started as a ministry of Grace Independent Baptist Church and faithfully co-labors with other independent Baptist churches.  I.W.W.E. was established and holds to its purpose in "Training Soul Winning Leaders Around the World" and assisting in starting fundamental, independent Baptist churches. Dr. Wells and those who faithfully support and labor with I.W.W.E. strongly believe that the way to more effectively reach the world with the Gospel is to train nationals around the world to reach the world from where they are.  Since Dr. Wells began this ministry in 2001 many other local churches have caught the vision.  We praise the Lord for the privilege of co-laboring with pastors and churches around the world.
