Facing the Dangers of Pornography

Protus Sibukule of Project Nomad-Eldoret, Kenya

It was a blessing to travel to Nairobi during the summer for the Project Nomad regional training.

We are excited to produce more videos for the people of the Pokot tribe in their own language, so biblical teaching is easier for them to understand. The videos we’ve produced for this people group are not only watched, but the Lord uses the videos to inspire change in the hearts of those who watch them.

Our newest project is a 25-minute video on the dangers of pornography.

We are also working on a series for youth based on 1 Timothy 4:12 to address the issues of faith, love, purity, and speech. Pray these resources will challenge people to walk more closely with the Lord.

Dedicating a New Studio

Timothy P., Regional Director of GNPI-SE Asia

Our team is looking ahead to the ways God will use us in the future. We have dedicated a new studio in the northern part of our region. This outpost will reduce our expenses and supply resources for the tribal people as we produce materials in Rawang and other languages. The first audio projects are the Miracles of Jesus and worship music.

My wife and I felt burdened to do more to share Christ in the area where we grew up. We felt the Lord led us to purchase the land and donate it to the churches, so they could have a studio. Another Christian family made a donation to help us make this facility possible. We were able to move some of our older equipment from our main studio to the new studio.  

This new studio, along with the new training center in our capital city, reminds us that God answers our prayers and accomplishes His will to make disciples in SE Asia.

Prayers & Praises

Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. We have come to believe and to know that you are the Holy One of God.”— John 6:68-69 (NIV)

Last Piece of the Puzzle: Praise the Lord! Project Nomad Coordinator Mark Allen reports that 24 Christian workers participated in the regional media 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.”

New Radio Programs: Gustavo Velázquez of GNPI-Piedras Negras, Mexico, writes, “We want to add another live program before the end of the year. Pray for our new live radio program ‘Good Evening with Gustavo’ as well. Our goal is to build relationships with the audience and interact with them more meaningfully. We think these live programs will help a lot.”

A Warm Welcome: Isaac Masiga of GNPI-Nairobi, Kenya, writes, “A couple of our coworkers travelled seven hours to survey the needs and culture of the Endorois people, a minority group in western Kenya. We want to learn the best ways to share the Gospel with them. The poverty these people face doesn’t diminish their welcoming hospitality. Please pray we can continue to build good relationships with this group.”

Making Our Resources Available: Sergei Golovin of GNPI-Eurasia writes, “Until the situation changes (and it will change eventually), the Crimean team is doing their best to use human resources, equipment, and facilities to provide media production and Internet resources. The mainland team (scattered in four cities) focuses on content development, teaching, training, publishing, and distribution of our resources. We have increased the number of Internet platforms for our resources to make them available in even the most restricted areas.”

Nuggets of Wisdom: Nenette Pacoli of GNPI-Manila, Philippines, says, “We are starting a new ‘Career or Calling’ segment in our Say It Forward series with Mr. Caloy Magsakay Diño. Pray that Filipinos of all ages will find a nugget of godly wisdom from his words about the purpose of life.”

A Stitch in Time

Blessings from Mbale, Uganda! The Lord is growing the ministry here.

This map represents the location of our Solar Kits currently. The requests from evangelists for more Solar Kits are increasing.

The Kampala Church of Christ leadership has expressed interest in our proposal to use their church as a DVD distribution point. This is a good starting place for our plans.

We produced this video to help some ministry partners celebrate the dedication of a new facility.

We are excited to report that all seven episodes of the Life Of Christ (LOC) series is on their vimeo channel as well.

It is our hope to reach more people, far and wide, as we accomplish our mission of accelerating global evangelism through media and technology.

From a Drug Addict to a Christian Teacher

Our ministry partners at GNPI-Chiang Mai, Thailand, have released a new testimony about a life transformed by the love of Christ.

A Thai man shares how God gave him hope, value, and help in overcoming a drug addiction. He encourages others saying, “Believe me! God can change your life if you will accept Him and submit to Him.”

 

Seeds Planted

Sergei Golovin, Regional Director of GNPI-Eurasia

The purpose of our ministry is tri-fold: introducing the Truth to skeptics, strengthening the saints’ confidence in the Truth, and equipping God’s people to proclaim God’s Word effectively.

UES 2016 04 4 (1)

Our resources on creation evangelism and the biblical foundations for civil society are in high demand.

UES 2016 04 7

More and more schools and churches are also asking for resources on logical thinking. Teaching Bible and logics courses at the Joint School of Christian Apologetics caused a ripple effect, and we have scheduled several more opportunities to teach and train. The course at Ukrainian Evangelical Seminary served church leaders from Ukraine, Moldova, and Belarus. Please join us in praying for the seeds planted.

Seminars for a student club have also prepared the soil. It was very exciting! There were three days of seminars on science, Bible, and creation evangelism attended by leaders from the region, as well as those from the city of Ternopil. We did not have any network presence there before this seminar.

Lviv Science Bible 9 (1)

Another exciting project is the Daniel School. Its purpose is to train select teenagers to be church and society leaders. The program includes studies of Scripture, apologetics, logic, rhetoric, sports, camping, hiking, rafting, and teamwork. We are going to provide academic content for this program. All the sessions are broadcast online.

I was especially touched by the young people who followed us online from the war zone. A group of seven even followed us online from a basement in one the hottest spots of our country’s confrontation. They were listening to both the Creation Evangelism seminar and shell bursts. May the Lord keep them safe and protected! Please pray for this great project and for these devoted young people. They are the future of the Church and the nation.

The Lord is opening a lot of opportunities in Ukraine to impact believers and prepare them to always give an answer about the reason for our hope. These baptism pictures were taken near Kiev.

We also wanted to pass on these encouraging comments about our productions. You have helped us teach and build up the Hispanic culture with your prayers and your support. The productions mentioned below are all available on our website.

Promise of Love

“This is a very nice movie with a very nice message. Women should not be humiliated or mistreated. With God nothing is impossible.”

“God is faithful and loving. To Him we are precious jewels. We are invited to know Him through His beloved Son, Jesus. Thank you for this film. May God continue to bless people through it.”

“God brought me to a defining moment in my life due to this beautiful story. It is very good; I recommend it. I thank the people who created it.”

“God’s plan and purpose comes even amid afflictions. It’s a beautiful testimony. What an excellent movie!”

Addictions Documentary

“Greetings, my beloved brothers, thanks for the video of Adicciones. It is very useful to me. We are in Salamanca and Cortazar, Guanajuato. I’m in Cortazar as a family counselor at a Rehabilitation Center for alcoholism and drug addiction. We have connected with a church in Salamanca, Guanajuato also.”

Testimony of Raziel

“Raziel, may Jesus Christ our Lord bless your life and keep using you as a living tool to preach his Gospel among those most in need. This is an excellent video testimony!”

Jochy D & Band Music Videos

“Excellent job, Good News Productions, International! Thank you for your support of this ministry. Thank you for sharing these videos. They are very good, I recommend them. May God keep using them.”

Impressive Response

We had an opportunity to visit a local school for the two last days of July. A pastor and Christian ministry student at LivingStone International University (LIU) invited us. He is also a high school teacher involved in one of the biggest Christian Union fellowships in Mbale.

For two days we showed Tough Choices, Promise of Love, and Unshackled, which are videos about drugs, peer pressure, and sexual purity. The response was impressive. Over 200 students came for both days. Two girls responded to a call to give their lives to Jesus. The pastor was so impressed by the videos that he asked us to work out a plan for similar partnerships in the future. We are praying God will use this opportunity to reach hundreds of youth.

In other ministry news, all our Solar Kits are in the field except for two. We are in contact with the evangelists who are using them. We are thankful to hear that a lot of people are learning about Christ through the videos. One interesting testimony came from a couple in Bulambuli, in northern Mbale. They said they learned a lot from the Swahili film, Ndume Halisi, about family leadership. It is exciting to receive this feedback from people whose marriages are being transformed by watching this project from our coworkers in Nairobi as we work to finalize our Marriage for Life series. Please keep us in your prayers as we work together for the glory of His name.
