Reaching Villages in Kenya: Isaac Masiga of GNPI-Nairobi, Kenya, writes, “Pray for us as we continue to reach out to the Endorois people of western Kenya. Our main objectives are: draw people (nearly 100 each night) using Christian videos through a Solar Kit; spend time sharing God’s Word; watch God work as people surrender their lives to Him; help plant churches by working with a local minister; continue the follow-up.”
Solar Kit Outreach in Uganda: Stephen Muturi of GNPI-Mbale, Uganda, writes, “Praise the Lord! We were able to take a Solar Kit to a remote village in northern Uganda a few Sundays ago.

Sharing Jesus in SE Asia: Timothy P. of GNPI-SE Asia says, “Because of your prayers, the Gospel of Christ is spreading continually in all parts of the country.

Media Conference in Thailand: Gayle Silkwood of Chiang Mai, Thailand, writes, “I have been nearly consumed over the past six months in helping the administrative team for a media conference, which was held right here in Chiang Mai this year. Over 720 attendees came from 62 different countries around the world. The attendees came together to get specific media training and share the latest media strategies for mission work. Our team members all participated in workshops. Praise the Lord for helping our Thai staff step up and take on new challenges.”
Easter Broadcasts in India: Manee Massey of GNPI-Damoh, India, writes, “We sent our 24- minute Easter program to Sony TV (Big National TV) and a 30-minute version with two messages and two songs to Shubhsandesh TV (Christian National TV). We also made a program in Punjabi which will be broadcast on DD Punjabi (National TV). All three versions were broadcast on March 31st during the daytime. Dr. Ajai Lall gave an outstanding message, and we value his time and partnership in this project. Thanks to all the GNPI partners and donors who made this project possible. In the past 600 people contacted us from all over the country, and we are praying that more people will be connected with us through the follow-up this time.”

Biblical Foundations in Eurasia: Sergei Golovin of GNPI-Eurasia writes, “We try to multiply every resource we develop with all the media tools available. With the help of our friends and partners at Evangel Theological Seminary we have recorded 12 seminars on the Biblical Foundations for Science. They are available online along with other videos and audios we produce. We also stock the libraries of seminaries with top quality books and visuals for students. Please pray for better use of all these resources for the sake of the Kingdom.”
Influencing Students in Eurasia: Sergei Golovin of GNPI-Eurasia writes, “A few weeks ago we celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Christian Students Fellowship. I’ve had the joy and privilege of leading this board for nearly 12 years and watching it grow from a foreign mission into a national movement. Given the ongoing turnover of its members, it’s staggering to think how many students have gone through the fellowship. Praise the Lord for the way this fellowship impacted not only their lives, but also the lives they influenced as professionals afterwards. I have a strong conviction that student ministries are strategic both for the church and for the national development. Please pray with us for this glorious ministry, for its workers, and for their impact on the colleges and universities nationwide.”

Christian workers are following up with Jesus Story viewers on two different Facebook groups and distributing children’s books as a supplement to the series.
