Media Missionaries in Cairo

Timothy Jai Kumar, Project Nomad regional trainer from Chennai, India, graciously stepped in to help with a Project Nomad commitment a few weeks after the accident that caused the death of our friend and coworker Mark Allen. Timothy instructed 17 Arabic-speaking young people in July about new ways of using technology to present the Gospel. Bill Weber of New Missions Systems International also shares his observations of the training.

A Conversation with Dasha

Dasha, a student from Ukraine, shares about her personal faith. She explains some of the things she has learned about video production from GNPI and her view of the GNPI ministry.

Dasha says, “Even though cultural barriers are difficult to overcome, we must take the Gospel to other countries. We won’t be separated by national boundaries in Heaven.”

Seeds of Faith

Gayle Silkwood, Office Manager of GNPI-Chiang Mai, Thailand

As with the sower in Jesus’ parable, those of us who create media materials have an opportunity to spread seeds of faith. In Thailand, we do this with the Internet, on mobile devices, and anywhere media can be taken.

We hope that in sowing our inspirational programs some will fall on good soil (those who are ready to hear). We sow seeds of faith in the form of testimonials, Bible lessons, and community outreach stories waiting for the Lord of the Harvest to bring about the yield.

Thank you for helping us share the Good News in this way.

New Features for “The Global Gospel”

GNPI Makes the Journey Easier

Stephen Muturi, Operations Manager of GNPI-Mbale, Uganda, shares the following testimony of a minister who has been using a Solar Kit from GNPI.

My name is Michael Simbwa. I am a minister at the Mityana Church of Christ in the central region of the country. I have been a Christian for over 20 years.  My parents are of the Catholic faith. I decided to take a different path in school when I gave my life to Christ. The call to evangelize has been full of challenges, but Jesus prepared us.

One of the reasons I became an evangelist was to reach as many people as possible. The great commission is dear to my heart. It is with this that I have kept the faith, committed myself to mission work even with financial and social among other challenges facing people who go into full time ministry.

I was introduced to GNPI in 2010 soon after they opened the office in Uganda. By then I was actively involved in evangelism and ministry in my village, Bikhonge, Bulambuli district. Having the Solar Kits has been more than a blessing to my call. When preaching to people, every pastor hopes to get many people’s attention. This can be hard when people are very busy trying to make a living.

I cannot thank God enough for what He has achieved through the Solar Kits. I never imagined I would travel to places outside my village but the numbers the films attract inspire me. I have reached so many people, something that I would never have done without the use of this portable technology.

I testify that God is never limited by anything. He can reach people in the farthest of places. I am humbled to be His vessel of ministry. GNPI makes the journey easier.
I am glad for the partnership.

Listen to these young people in Busiu, Uganda, the south central part of the country, who were also grateful for the chance to learn from GNPI videos on the Solar Kit earlier this year.

 

Six Days

Sergei Golovin, Regional Director of GNPI-Eurasia

Six Days is the theme of our summer children’s programs, which have taken place carefully in the format of day camps, family camps, and playgrounds. Our team focuses on building the faith of people of all ages, and building a Christian worldview in youth is our top priority. The nations of the former Soviet Union have experienced a great exodus from the Egypt of communism to the desert of secular democracy. Our goal is to do everything we can for the next generation to enter the promised land of the Kingdom.

The following video features some of the highlights with these young people.

Please join us in prayer for these children who learned how God created the world in six days, for staff safety, for the Lord’s guidance, and for His greater glory in this region.

An Honor

Isaac Masiga, Regional Director of GNPI-Nairobi, Kenya

Our team had the honor to stream a live broadcast for the national day of prayer in Kenya last month.

We had a turnout of nearly 50,000 people who came to pray for the country.

The event was a prayer rally named National Peace and Destiny of Kenya, and it unified churches from all denominations in Kenya.


The following video shows the entire two hour event.

Please continue to pray for our nation after last week’s elections.

Media: The Language of My People

Mike Schrage, Executive Director

Cairo is a mega city on the northern tip of Africa. Her people are a unique mixture of both Middle Eastern and African cultures. In the land of pyramids and pharaohs, situated in the middle of a desert, rises a bustling and dynamic city, rich in heritage and new in context. Everyone has a smartphone, and with Google Maps available, businesses like Uber allow thousands to move about without a car or mass transit system.

Media has also become sophisticated there, as it is around the world. As one new GNPI partner explained, “Mike, I am asking the Lord to help me understand media, because it is the language of my people.”

A conference has launched a complex media and discipleship-making effort (and ultimately successful church planting) in this region of the world. Another group meets regarding the follow-up print and social media strategies for the serialization of The Global Gospel for the five to eight million children in the region.

Finally, networking takes place in another North African country where workers have developed an effective online prayer movement which has been powering a media strategy over the last few years. Second and third-generation church plants comprise the beginning of a movement.

As birds sing in the calmness of the cool morning to begin what will be another hot, busy summer day in Cairo, may we too sing praises to God. He is doing marvelous things here and all around the world.
