Striving to Contribute

Isaac Masiga, Regional Director of GNPI-Nairobi, Kenya

This is the latest promotional video about the work of our team.

We endeavor to address the needs of our communities by sharing God’s Word through media.

Our team is one part of a worldwide network with eight regional centers. Our goal is to produce content for different cultures in different languages to prompt positive change in the rural and urban areas around us. We partner with other like-minded organizations to produce cutting edge media materials. We use every possible distribution channel to convey our messages. Our office also uses Yunami, our smartphone app, and Solar Kits designed specifically for Africa.

We strive to contribute to the building of communities, so Africans have access to information that transforms their lives.

ICOM Highlights

Mike Schrage, Executive Director

Our team at GNPI enjoyed serving at the International Conference On Missions (ICOM) last fall.
We have many good memories as we watch these highlights. Our African friend and ministry partner, Dennis Okoth, is featured in the following video.

Our team at GNPI considers ICOM a great opportunity to connect with the Church in reaching out with the Gospel.

Solar Kit: The Huge Blessing

A Christian Worker in China

Thank you for the huge blessing of a Solar Kit for me and several friends in ministry to use in a variety of ways to share the Gospel for the last 18 months.

The Solar Kit has been a tremendous help to me in my ministry to a formerly unengaged, still unreached, minority ethnic group in the remote mountainous areas of Southern China. While the group has no written language, a short, evangelistic video is available with their cultural context and mother tongue. We’ve shown small groups of people in many different villages the hope of the Gospel using this video and other evangelistic videos in Mandarin Chinese. The response has been very encouraging. They are so excited to see a video in their own language and request more.

Other ministries in my city have been blessed by the Solar Kit as well. One ministry team who works with skateboarders has competitions where they share their testimonies with the entire group. They record their testimonies on video to make them more accessible and shareable, then they use the Solar Kit to show them to a wider audience. Multiple commitments to Christ have been made by the sharing these testimonies, and small discipleship groups have been established to help these new believers grow.

Another national Christian brother who felt led by God to open a gym used the Solar Kit to paint Scripture in both Chinese and English on the walls of his gym. This makes the love of God clear to all who walk through the gym doors.

I look forward to continued to use of the Solar Kit in the villages and hope it can be used in the future for discipleship.

Paul Bacon, a friend of GNPI from a supporting congregation in Indiana, connected us with this Christian worker. Contact us at www.gnpi.org/solarkits if someone from your church could benefit from this tool. GNPI has been using Solar Kits to help share the Gospel since 1981. Since then the ministry has sent more than 600 Solar Kits to nearly 50 nations.

Good Evening

Gustavo Velázquez, Regional Director of GNPI-Piedras Negras, Mexico

Our live Tuesday and Thursday morning program, Resplandece (Shine) with Abi Flores, is geared towards young people who are looking for practical and simple solutions as they deal with current issues.

The format has been so popular that I began hosting another live program, Buenas Tardes (Good Evening), every Monday and Wednesday from 5 to 7 pm. Buenas Tardes has a varied and dynamic content with reflective anecdotes, health issues, and a Message from the Word of God. It is very good to have interaction with the audience and to offer them this biblical encouragement.

Recently a student from a Bible College in Piedras Negras visited the hospital to pray for the patients and to share Christ with them. The student met a young man named Armando Lopez who gave his life to Jesus. He’d heard our first Buenas Tardes show and was excited when we greeted him over the radio. The theme of the program that day was “Jesus, teach us to pray, and Armando was very happy to learn more about prayer. ”

Captain

Habacuc Diaz, Team Leader of Project Nomad-Santiago, Chile

We would like to present a new music video. We plan for this to be the first of six songs on a new worship DVD.

We are learning so much, as we reach Chilean youth who love music, art, and videos!

Through waters uncharted my soul will embark
I’ll follow Your voice straight into the dark
And if from the course You intend
I depart
Speak to the sails of my wandering heart

Like the wind
You’ll guide
Clear the skies before me
And I’ll glide this open sea

Like the stars
Your Word
Will align my voyage
And remind me where I’ve been
And where I am going

Lost in the shallows amidst fear and fog
Your truth is the compass that points me back north
Jesus
My Captain
My soul’s trusted Lord
All my allegiance is rightfully Yours

Like the wind
You’ll guide
Clear the skies before me
And I’ll glide this open sea

Like the stars
Your Word
Will align my voyage
And remind me where I’ve been
And where I am going

Like the wind
You’ll guide
Clear the skies before me
And I’ll glide this open sea

Like the stars
Your Word
Will align my voyage
And remind me where I’ve been
And where I am going

Jesus
My Captain
My soul’s trusted Lord
All my allegiance is rightfully Yours

 

A Joyful Start to the New Year

Manee Massey, Regional Director of GNPI-Damoh, India

More than 500 callers contacted our office after the Christmas Eve broadcast in Hindi. Area pastors are helping us follow-up with these viewers. Our Christmas program was 24 minutes long and included two music videos and a Message about Jesus.

This latest Christmas program was not only broadcast in Hindi but also in the Punjabi language on Punjabi National TV. More than 150 Punjabi speakers contacted us for more information.

It is our joy to help people understand the true meaning of Christmas and to know Christ as His disciples.

This month our staff was busy with the World Convention (Global Gathering 2017) in Damoh. We recorded videos of the sessions and were responsible for live editing on a big video wall for nearly 3,200 people.

We are now preparing for a three day seminar on leadership for approximately 150 people from all over India. The Lord is working in many ways to draw people into a relationship with Him.

Share your story with us as you see God working in India.

God Opened the Door

Timothy P., Regional Director of GNPI-SE Asia

God opened a new door for His Word. Several evangelists went to a minority group, and more than 10,000 people converted to Christianity a few years ago. However, there was not an opportunity to share Christ with the majority group in that area. This majority group has stronger Buddhists than any other group in our region. In the past several years, a few people from this majority group have accepted Christ as their Savior and the one true God.

During the Christmas season I was invited to the area by a Christian man from the majority group by one of the preachers in the capital city. He wanted his people to hear about Jesus. I went to visit this man and joined several other preachers for a Christmas celebration in the village. It was impossible to preach about Christ publically in this area a few years back, but this man blocked the road in front of his house and set up chairs for many people.

About 30 adults gathered to hear the Gospel. The host told me that the chief of police and a few police officers were in the audience. The police chief bought a whole package of soft drinks, but I only had a chance to shake hands with him because he had to leave right away. I also saw a monk listening from the distance. I presented Jesus who came to the earth 2,000 years ago to be with human beings and to save them from sin. I began with the creation of the universe. Then I continued on to the birth of Jesus Christ and how he sacrificed His life to save us from the condemnation of Hell. Everyone listened very quietly.

According to our tradition, I bought a pig and a nice meal was served after the preaching. The monk who had been listening to the Word mingled with the people, but I did not have a chance to meet him personally.

After a few days I received a call from the preacher who told me that the people were touched by two words: Creator and Messiah.

God, the Creator, gave life to humans. God made a human being and breathed life into him. Now they understand that the life they have is from God. They also realized the Messiah, whom they were waiting for, had come and died on the cross to save them from eternal punishment. Two men were baptized a few days after the gathering.

I praise God for hope through Christ, opening doors into new areas, giving His children a burden to share the Good News with others, and the way He transforms lives!
