Jesus Intercedes for Us

Project Nomad-Pachuca, Mexico

Who can intercede for us before God? This Nomad team continues to create a variety of discipleship resources in Spanish to offer the hope of Christ.

The team works in conjunction with IMPACTO Latino; Good News Productions, International (GNPI); and El Jubileo Christian Church, in Pachuca, Mexico.

They are an online community of technical and spiritual support serving the Hispanic church by providing useful and practical materials for the growth of the Kingdom of God.

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.

 

From the Pond to the Ocean

Isaac Masiga, Regional Director of GNPI-Nairobi, Kenya

Our team is working with 47 faith based broadcasters from all over Kenya. Our partnership started with several Public Service Announcements on various subjects such as cleanliness, substance abuse, gadgets, perseverance, choices about the sanctity of life, and life after prison.

Then we moved into three live broadcasts about national security. Working with this broadcast group has opened new opportunities for us to reach millions of people with biblical content. God has plucked us from a pond and put us into the ocean to fish for Him.

 

“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.

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

 

You Have Worth

Gayle Silkwood, Interim Director of GNPI-Chiang Mai, Thailand

This is the powerful testimony of Noi, an impoverished orphan who tried to commit suicide several times.

She found love and fulfillment in Christ and learned to read, so she could read God’s Word. Noi later married and started a successful business.

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
