Why Pray?

Timothy Jai Kumar, Team Leader of Project Nomad-Chennai, India

One day Jesus told his disciples a story to show that they should always pray and never give up. — Luke 18:1 (NLT)

Our team took an honest look at some of the common internal struggles we have with prayer, such as our posture, our words, and even our reasons for talking to God.

One of the most important things to remember is to never give up.

What are some other questions and accusations you face during prayer?

Cristo Te Amamos (Jesus We Love You)

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

As we learn about music production, we are amazed to see how God is using these videos to encourage the local church and to spread the Message of Christ.

We are receiving great feedback from the online community and the local churches. Our hope is to inspire other Christian artists and musicians to glorify God by sharing their faith and talents.

Here are the lyrics:

Old things have passed away

Your love has stayed the same

Your constant grace remains the cornerstone

 

Things that we thought were dead

Are breathing in life again

You cause your Son to shine on darkest nights

 

For all that you’ve done we will pour out our love

This will be our anthem song

 

Jesus we love you

Oh how we love you

You are the one our hearts adore

 

Our hearts adore

 

The hopeless have found their hope

The orphans now have a home

All that was lost has found its place in you

You lift our weary head

You make us strong instead

You took these rags and made us beautiful

 

Our affection, our devotion

poured out on the feet of Jesus

Our affection, our devotion

poured out on the feet of Jesus

Our affection, our devotion

poured out on the feet of Jesus

Our affection, our devotion

poured out on the feet of Jesus

 

Project Nomad Multiplies Impact

Mike Schrage, Executive Director

Peter Ignatius is the visionary leader of Lakeview Bible College and Seminary in Chennai, India. GNPI has been partnering with Peter for the last several years. Peter’s faculty and students have excitedly embraced Nomad training as a way to enhance their ability to use media to be effective and relevant communicators of the Good News in India.

Timothy Jai Kumar, a faculty member at Lakeview, now dedicates much of his teaching to students of media production. In partnership with GNPI, there is a small production studio at the college and an on-campus media team. Several intensive media courses are now available to incorporate the latest media methods and technologies.

Timothy has also traveled to other areas which several students call home, and he has taught their peers the basics of media production through Project Nomad. The Bible college has trained media students in five states who are serving the needs of their communities and congregations.


Project
Nomad continues to fulfill our goal to provide national outreach using media and discipleship and one more way GNPI is multiplying the ability of others to understand the Good News!

 

From Cattle Rustler to Christ’s Ambassador

Protus Sibukule of Project Nomad-Eldoret, Kenya  

Six years ago, Mudang was well known and feared by his fellow villagers because he was their leader. Mudang was mostly a negative influence. He recruited and trained young men who were involved in cattle rustling as well as shedding innocent blood in neighboring communities.

One day while showing Christian films in the Tiling’wa village in the East Pokot district, Mudang happened to be among the viewers. That day we showed the Shida Ya Samweli film. Mudang was touched, and it was a turning point in his life. He confessed his wrongdoing and asked for amnesty as he was a wanted man from the Rift Valley provincial administration. We prayed for him, and pointed him to Christ Jesus. He was baptized and became a regular member of Chebelion Church of Christ.

Since then, Mudang has continued to love the Word of God and the church. He has been instrumental in helping us with evangelism in the whole region of East Pokot. We have seen Mudang grow from a terrorist to a humble, caring, and loving disciple of Jesus Christ. Indeed, God has continued to restore hope in Mudang’s life. He is now a living example to many Pokots. Praise Jesus!

The local church initiated some small projects for the reformed cattle rustlers, including Mudang. They have purchased 20 goats, and Mudang was given 10 goats to raise. Through this project, Mudang has improved in his walk with the Lord. They intend to do more as God enables them with resources. When I visited Mudang recently, his goats have increased to 15 in number, and he is so grateful to God.

 

Learn From Me

The Project Nomad-Johannesburg, South Africa, team created this video to address the issue of teen pregnancy in South Africa. Many young girls become mothers at an early age, and some abandon their babies. The following video tells of a story of a young woman who chose a different route.

The team also provided local contact information for those who might need help with a pregnancy, baby, child, or have questions regarding their options.

Haciendo A Cristo Conocido (Making Christ Known)

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

I’m excited about what God is doing. We are investing our time in worship music for churches by working with local artists. We also produce micro documentaries on social issues to assist groups who are helping homeless people in our city. In addition, we create resources to help teach the Bible in area congregations.

We are pleased to release another music video. The lyrics are very meaningful.

VERSE
In the forgotten villages, lost are still
Those who one day before the throne
They will love you
Unconscious and blind of eternity
Live dead, separated captives are

CHORUS
Making Christ known in every people and nation
They are millions who do not know of your great love
And You call us to the fields where no one heard of You
Raise us, Lord, to your mission

INTERLUDE
You are the King of them too
Your death was also for them
They are your loved ones and they do not know it
May their lips confess the Lord

 

Overcoming Adversity

Our Project Nomad-Pachuca, Mexico, team is producing a variety of practical teaching videos to offer encouragement and hope. The following video is one of their latest releases.

The video explains how important it is to be resilient through the problems of life. Job is used as an example because of the way he overcame harsh adversity in his own life. In order to grow we need to be able to resist, adapt, and recover after facing struggles of all kinds. God’s Word gives us the tools we need, and our relationship with Him provides hope for our souls.

So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
                                                — Isaiah 41:10 (NIV)
