“Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.” – Proverbs 19:21 (NIV)
Two short years ago at our Vision Night events, we shared our ambitious plans to find ways to distribute our content on apps. Two years later we see God working to make that vision a reality. After we laid our plans before God, GNPI was guided to partnerships with well respected organizations including Back to the BIble and YouVersion to distribute our content through mobile apps.
In addition to this work with Back to the Bible, we’ve created Bible study plans in Russian, Ukrainian, Hindi, Spanish, and Tunisian Arabic for the YouVersion Bible app. This content covers some of the most basic stories of the life of Christ including His birth, His teachings in the Sermon on the Mount, and His death and resurrection over ten thousand people have subscribed to these plans, and more than 7,500 have fully completed their plan subscriptions.
We’re working hard to integrate more of our content seamlessly across multiple mobile app channels. To this end, we reached a new milestone recently when GNPI-Piedras Negras, Mexico, made their Spanish Easter plan, La Semana Santa, available on both YouVersion and + Vida. It’s our first double punch in making the same content available on two platforms!
This may not have been the way we would have pictured our plans being accomplished two years ago, but we praise God for His purpose that prevails.
