Faces of GNPI

Mike Schrage, Executive Director

I would like to introduce you to a new page on our website that will connect you with our growing global network. Notice the diversity of faces from around the world working to create media to share the Gospel with the next generation.

As you look over the names, faces, and locations of these coworkers, I encourage you to lift them up in prayer. They are your ministry partners in world evangelism.

Click any image above or visit www.gnpi.org/faces to see the rest. We hope to continually update this page, so come back and visit the Faces of GNPI regularly.

Jesus in Our Church

Project Nomad-Chennai, India, produced this thought provoking video. Timothy Jai Kumar leads this team of students from Lakeview Bible College & Seminary (LBCS). They have worked on The Global Gospel in two languages as well as produced videos on social issues, a teaching series on the caste system, and the missions in media curriculum for LBCS.

Is Jesus welcome in your local church?

You Pick Two

It can be challenging to provide a quick overview of the vast ministry of GNPI. More teams, tools, and trainings are developed every year to accelerate global evangelism.

There are several ways to introduce GNPI to others. Here are some of the newest options. We encourage you to pick two and share them with two people.

Thank you for your partnership with GNPI. Contact us at www.gnpi.org if you or your ministry partners have questions about any of our projects.

Update from Chennai

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

Our team is doing great and working on several different projects. We would like to share a video that we created for graduation at Lakeview Bible College & Seminary to let people know a little more about our media team.

These are some of our highlights from the last year:

  • The Global Gospel in Tamil and Telugu were released.
  • We trained a team in West Bengal. They have completed nine projects in the Nepali language so far.
  • We trained a team of 17 people in Darjeeling.
  • Our Chennai team is completing new projects every month. We have 22 projects in English, two in Tamil, two in Hindi, and one in Malayalam.
  • We are planning to form two new teams, one in Andhra Pradesh (Kakinada) and one in Kerala (Cochin).

We receive young students with great talent each year who contribute to our work.

 

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 Closer Look at Suffering

Andrew Goryainov from Lutsk, Ukraine, produced this video to provide an inside look at the humanitarian crisis. There are nearly two million internally displaced people in the country. The host of the video visits a shelter and views some of the housing available in eastern Ukraine. Christian people have joined together to help supply some basic needs for these families, especially the children.

Andrew is a friend and coworker with Sergei Golovin of GNPI-Eurasia. Andrew was a student at the Project Nomad training in Kiev, and this video is the fruit of the experience. He is eager to learn more about media and the possibility of starting a Nomad team.

The Impact of Project Nomad

Patrick Kenee, Christian Worker in South Africa

The Project Nomad-Johannesburg, South Africa, team records, edits, and prepares teaching materials from leadership training conferences. I have a friend who shares these Bible correspondence materials at every opportunity.  I’ve seen the positive impact of the course in the rural villages. Project Nomad empowers people to share the Gospel.

 

A Favorite Highlight: Winter 2016 Prayer Report

(This “Highlights of the Year” blog was originally posted on November 25, 2016. It is a blessing to reflect on the ways God has worked through the GNPI network to share the Gospel around the world.)


Join us as we praise God for our ministry partners and for His answers to our prayers 
season after season.

“Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.”— Psalm 62:8 (NIV)

Americas

Sharing the Gospel in Sign Language: Gustavo Velázquez of GNPI-Piedras Negras, Mexico, says, “Pablo and I travelled to the city of Matamoros, Tamaulipas, Mexico, along the border of Brownsville, Texas, to begin production on three projects with the cooperation of With My Hands ministry led by Jesus and Michelle Zuniga. God is using this couple to give hope in Christ and a better way of life to the deaf people in Matamoros. We started with recordings of 15 lessons from The Global Gospel in sign language. It is impressive to see how excited the deaf people were to participate in this project. One of them told us she was very happy because she wants to help other deaf people to know God’s love through these videos.”

Moved to Action: Gustavo Velázquez of GNPI-Piedras Negras, Mexico, writes, “We finished a new video about a ministry partner in Nicaragua who works with women who have survived human trafficking. It is an inspirational video to motivate action in service to our God, and it is the first video in our new series From Words to Deeds.

Africa

National Security: Isaac Masiga of GNPI-Nairobi, Kenya, writes, “Praise the Lord! The Ministry of Interior and Coordination of National Government and the Kenya Faith-Based Media Group, which is comprised of 42 broadcasters nationwide, had three successful live broadcasts from our studio during the month of September. We had a panel of reputable leaders in the government and clergy, as well as other faiths, speak about issues dealing with security of the nation from a faith-based perspective. An article about the broadcasts was published in one of the leading newspapers in the country.”

Fifty Decisions for Christ: Stephen Muturi of GNPI-Mbale, Uganda, writes, “Thank you for sending the two Solar Kits and spare pieces of equipment we requested. We tested them, and the new speakers are very good. These will greatly improve our efforts in the field where evangelists report at least 50 people have accepted Christ in the last two months.”

Asia

Understanding the Gospel Clearly: Timothy P. of GNPI-SE Asia shares the testimony of a man who was helped by GNPI resources. The villager said, “I am thirty-nine years old. I am a Buddhist. I regarded Christianity as a false religion until this evangelist visited our village and shared about the true and living God. After I heard the Message from this evangelist, I realized what I have heard about Christianity was totally wrong. I came to understand clearly that the only true God is Jesus Christ, and Jesus gave His own life in order to pay for our sins and rose again.”

Producing New Lessons: Nenette Pacoli of GNPI-Manila, Philippines, writes, “We are excited to release our latest Say It Forward lessons. In this new episode Dr. Joanne Gallardo continues her amazing love story. Pray these lessons will greatly impact godly relationships in our culture.”

Improving Distribution: Gayle Silkwood of GNPI-Chiang Mai, Thailand, says, “Pray we know how to distribute all of the wonderful materials our team has created. They are available on a YouTube page. We may try a Facebook page. Pray for me as I readjust to life in Thailand. Thank you for your prayers.”

Europe

A joyful retreat: Sergei Golovin of GNPI-Eurasia writes, “We took a trip and held a retreat with a couple of displaced families. We visited other displaced families on our way sharing books, clothing, love, comfort, hope, and encouragement. Please pray with us for those in Ukraine who left their homes, as well as for the end of the war and restored justice! Pray for us as we share the Message of the Lord’s ultimate justice! We believe the Lord will use every situation for His glory. We just have to keep listening to Him with faith and patience.”

India

A Passion for Evangelism: Manee Massey of GNPI-Damoh, India, writes, “Our staff has been busy recording a sermon series from a preacher who is working in the small house churches of Jabalpur villages with nearly 1,400 people. He has a passion for evangelism and requested our help. We have also been working on a cable TV program with several other preachers. Pray that God will use these messages to strengthen believers to share the Truth with others.”

Creativity: Manee Massey of GNPI-Damoh, India, writes, “We are busy working on assembling about 40 Solar Kits. Please pray for our staff to have creativity for all our projects.”

Project Nomad Updates

Last Piece of the Puzzle: Praise the Lord! Project Nomad Coordinator Mark Allen reports that 24 Christian workers participated in the regional training in Togo. Kpowbie Daniel, a ministry partner from Community Health Education and organizer of the event said, “I think this training is going to bring a tremendous change in the way we have been working for the Lord. I think everyone was waiting for this. It was like the last piece of the puzzle.”

 

Home from Hong Kong: Project Nomad Coordinator Mark Allen provided a regional training in Hong Kong this fall. Please pray for the Lord to help these Christian workers to communicate clearly and to multiply their efforts to share the Gospel as they use what they learned.

Overall Ministry

International Director: Please join us in praying that God would send the right person to serve as our international director and work closely with our growing network of regional centers and Project Nomad teams.

Communicating Well: A Christian worker in South Sudan writes, “I lead a team of 10 adults working to plant churches among the unreached Laarim people of South Sudan. This is a relatively small people group of approximately 11,000. Currently, there are only a handful of Laarim believers, most of whom live elsewhere, and no churches. We use the Solar Kit with adults and children. It communicates well with our Laarim audience. Thanks for your support in spreading the Gospel in South Sudan!”

Remote Access: Bob and Pam Hudson of Mexico Medical Missions write, “We work with a mission hospital in the Sierra Madres of Mexico. Last year, we met two GNPI team members. While we were talking about our ministry in very remote villages to the Tarahumara Indians, the GNPI staff offered to give us the Solar Kit they had with them. We took it with us and gave it to a missionary friend who lives in a village off the main road two hours by car (traveling at a speed of about 8 mph) and then another two hours on foot. Obviously, there is no electricity or any other kind of convenience. This friend loves the Solar Kit and is able to tell Bible stories like never before. Thank you so much for you help.”

The GNPI App: Praise the Lord for new resources to help believers tell the Gospel story effectively! Download The GNPI App to see how the Good News is shared throughout the world. It is available from The Apple Store or Google Play Store.

The Global Gospel Update: We praise the Lord for the 26 completed language versions of The Global Gospel, which can be viewed online. There are 11 additional versions in progress. We recently divided the 88 stories into 107, so some of the longer segments could be more easily adapted for various applications on mobile devices. To date, more than 16,000 people have completed plans and tracks incorporating the videos from The Global Gospel on their favorite app.

 

A Favorite Highlight: The Incredible Ukrainian Tour

Our Goal at GNPI

We must accelerate global evangelism while there is time. Ten out of 15 people do not follow Christ in this world of seven billion people.

People need to encounter Jesus in a language and culture they can understand. Our methods of connecting with the world are constantly changing along with technology, but our Message never does.

Media and technology don’t replace the Gospel or the need for human interaction. They are a vehicle to help deliver the Good News to people quickly, effectively, and on their terms.

GNPI creates media. Our teams make up a growing network in strategic locations, partnering with Christians to produce culturally relevant content and strategies to make disciples of all nations.

GNPI multiplies impact. Project Nomad provides training to equip more believers with the skills to produce and distribute biblically based projects. Our Nomad Production Kit is an innovative and cost-effective tool to get started with media production.

GNPI helps take ministry farther. Our tools range from global media initiatives that can be replicated quickly in almost any language to hands-on equipment.

We are passionate about multiplying the number of people using media to help fulfill the Great Commission.
