Two As One Couples

Isaac Masiga, Regional Director of GNPI-Nairobi, Kenya

We are pleased to release a new set of lessons on marriage. These programs examine many of the issues husbands and wives face. We pray this series will encourage many families in a practical way.

The episodes on marriage are part of our Redefining the Church teaching series started earlier this year. This series is designed for mature Christians. It includes, but is not limited to, sports, marriage, industry, commerce, media, and entertainment.

We’ve already completed the following lessons on biblical marriage. Kindly take a look.

Corridor of Hope

Nenette Pacoli, Regional Director of GNPI-Manila, Philippines

Our staff is deeply honored by a support group for cancer patients who are using our Faith Matters, too! videos.

Patients in the cancer unit at St. Luke’s hospital usually wait in the corridor for medical appointments and treatments. A Christian lady noticed the somber and depressing mood of many people, and she wanted to encourage everyone by sharing Jesus. Eventually, the support group was born. It continues even though the founder herself died. The group started at the main branch and when the hospital opened another branch in Global City, the Corridor of Hope was established there.

The support group shares our Faith Matters, too! videos on their Facebook page: St. Luke’s Corridor of Hope GC​. If you check out their page, most of the posts are about cancer, treatments, activities, and our GNPI videos. May the Lord work through this opportunity!

Jesus Intercedes for Us

Demolishing Atheistic Strongholds

Sergei Golovin, Regional Director of GNPI-Eurasia

We are teaching and training Christian leaders from 10 time zones.

We are developing new resources, including a book and a training seminar entitled Does God Exist? Our goal is to equip believers to demolish atheistic worldview strongholds in this post-communist part of the world.

We are distributing books with a biblical view of creation.

We use various Internet sites, platforms, and social networks to spread the Message of Christ to areas of the former Soviet Union. It is hard to estimate how far it reaches. However, after finalizing the upload of all our resources to a new content management program, the results have amazed us! During the month of March we had visitors from 40 countries, and some of them are pretty surprising, like Saudi Arabia and Mongolia.

We praise the Lord for His faithfulness in this summary of our projects to date.

I appreciate the great community of coworkers, partners, volunteers, and prayer warriors who are involved in our ministry through teaching, preaching, content production, childrens ministry, publishing, writing, social networks, developing Internet resources, and in all of the other aspects of our work. Together we introduce the Truth to skeptics, strengthen the confidence of the saints in the Truth, and equip God’s people to proclaim God’s Word effectively. What a great family we are! May the Lord be praised!

We are developing children’s science programs.

We are recording testimonies and music videos.

My Turning Point

Stephen Muturi of GNPI-Mbale, Uganda, shares this powerful testimony of how God used a simple GNPI filmstrip shown on a Solar Kit to convict George’s heart and transform his life.

George from the Church of Christ in the Bulambuli District of Eastern Uganda

I chose to follow Christ because of what I had seen Him do in my wife’s life. My marriage was a sad one. After years in the army, I was fired. Emptiness descended on my life, and I needed something to fill that gap.

What followed were many nights away drinking, quarrels at home, and total neglect of 
my children. This went on for a few years. During all of this, my wife gave her life to Jesus. Of course, this did not sit well with me. Even with my determination to make her miserable, deep down I started asking questions of myself. In contrast to my misery, her life seemed purposeful. She would say good things, pray for me, and always invite me to join her in church.

Her persistence touched my heart. I decided to give the church a try. It so happened that the pastor was speaking about marriage when I first attended. Later, they showed a Swahili film, Ndume Halisi (Real Man), on marriage. This was my turning point. I made more visits to church, and the pastors spoke with me. The film convicted my heart. I could see myself in the main character.

This is my fifth year as a Christian; my life is changed for the better. My commitment to Christ and the church is strong. I am grateful to God for the blessing of a wife who has ministered to me. She is my rock, and thanks to the film I watched, our relationship has never been better.

 

A Thrilling Outcome

Manee Massey, Regional Director of GNPI-Damoh, India

Our staff is thrilled and excited by the outcome of the 2017 Easter program! We enjoy connecting with those who contact us about our broadcasts on national television. These connections are more than just a follow-up strategy. Talking with these viewers about the Lord renews our purpose, energy, and heart for ministry.
 

Our program included songs and a Message of hope from the Word. We immediately began to follow-up on 500 calls from 20 states in India.

We had really good responses from people, and we prayed for the personal needs of many non-Christians. One person said the Message touched him deeply since he never understood the meaning of Easter before. We sent The Global Gospel to people in various languages to those who requested more videos and study questions about Jesus.

This year three billboards in town, social media, Facebook ads, as well as the word of mouth from our musicians and cast promoted the program to more viewers.

 

“Why”

Stephen Muturi of GNPI-Mbale, Uganda

Our new release is called the Why project. It’s a three-minute video about the consequences of not being sexually pure, and it is also available for WhatsApp users. We are getting a lot of encouraging feedback on social media with more than 20,000 views in a week and 64 comments asking questions, thanking us, or requesting more videos. Here are a few examples of the comments:

That is my question I ask every time to myself without answer.

We can learn from this lesson.

Great short film..keep them coming! #inspired

This video will be included on the Solar Kits we distribute from now on.

We are excited to harness the influence of social media for Kingdom purposes!

“From Words to Deeds”

Gustavo Velázquez of GNPI-Piedras Negras, Mexico

From Words to Deeds is a new 10 video series about Christian people with a profession, office, or ministry of service to others. Each video is three minutes or less and based on 1 John 3:18, “. . . let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.”

The newest video in the series was made in partnership with the With My Hands deaf ministry. Our staff traveled to the city of Matamoros, Mexico, which is along the border of Brownsville, Texas, to begin several projects with Jesus and Michelle Zuniga. They have worked with the hearing impaired for more than 10 years and have a house where deaf ladies and children live. At their support school for the deaf they work with a group of more than 40 people, not only in learning sign language, but also in other areas such as basic education, the development of trades, and the presentation of the Gospel.

Jesus and Michelle have been closely involved with the lives of the deaf people and their families. The stories are heartbreaking with physical, psychological, and sexual abuse. However, God is using Jesus and Michelle to give hope and a better way of life to deaf people in Matamoros. They teach their students how to read using the Bible. Some have even met and married within the ministry. These students are integrating into society and the Church.
