Learning New Truths

The Project Nomad-Johannesburg, South Africa, team recently produced a promotional video for Kids Gospel Ministry (KGM), a local children’s ministry working with several public schools.

KGM’s vision is that the Holy Spirit will enable African children to delight in God’s saving grace, so they can glorify Him in all things and exalt Jesus in the world.

This Nomad team continues to work to sharpen their skills in media production. Project Nomad Coordinator Mark Allen says “Thank you for praying for the trip to South Africa. It went really well. Mark and Lynette Johnson from the Avalon Church of Christ in Virginia were a great asset and made a good connection to the team in Johannesburg. We were able to go through some advanced training as well as review basic areas of production to clarify and streamline the process.”

God showed His presence during these training events by allowing teaching moments to appear during the visits. Mark and the team encountered a group making a movie at a local mall. The team had a chance to ask production questions and learn from the professionals.



Mike Schrage

I recently watched via video the implosion of an old stock yard building near St. Louis. I have lots of memories of that building from my days as a farmer. Although there was no way to bring the dilapidated building back, I was sorry to see it destroyed.

I’m thankful God sees each person as someone worth restoring! His grace and mercy are always available to give new life and to sustain even those who are the farthest from Him.

This is exactly the type of work our Project Nomad team in Johannesburg, South Africa, is doing with your support. I was in Virginia Beach, Virginia, a few weeks ago visiting a church that supports the team. They recently sent a couple who are trained in media with Project Nomad Coordinator Mark Allen to provide additional training for them. The personal interaction and encouragement empowered the team and sharpened their skills for ministry.

We pray God will use their renewed energy to result in the spiritual renovation of many lives that may have otherwise been destroyed. Our prayer for you is the same. May you sense God’s empowerment in your life as you bring restoration to the people in your path.


Multiplying Our Efforts

Patrick Kenee, Christian Worker in South Africa

Project Nomad-Johannesburg, South Africa, is an essential part of our ministry growth. God is working to help us multiply our efforts in the last six years.

Project Nomad helps us provide leadership training conferences and resources to send home with those who attend. We have plans to add three more training centers, so more people can hear the Gospel of Christ .

New Productions in Chile

Project Nomad-Santiago, Chile, has produced several new music videos. Worship the Lord with them as they sing Because He Lives.

The team has recorded half of their 12 song plan, which have been put on a CD along with the lyrics to the songs. They’re also working to create music videos for each of the songs; four of them are complete and accessible on their YouTube page.

Their prayer is that this worship CD will be used throughout churches in Chile (and other countries) to aid in their worship services or to be used in small home groups. The initial response to their CD has been phenomenal.

Habacuc Diaz, team leader, traveled to Nicaragua in February to join the people from several nations to discuss what God has been doing through media in Central and South America. Habacuc recorded a tutorial about lighting as a follow-up to help others who attended the meeting in Nicaragua.

Please join us in seeking God’s wisdom for the future outcomes of this meeting.

New Releases from Rwanda

The Project Nomad-Kigali, Rwanda, team wants people to know that Jesus can be found in everything they do, in every culture, and in all areas of life.

Another recent video reminds us of how much Jesus loves children and how precious they are to Him.
