Breakthrough

The need for spiritual breakthrough compels GNPI.

We pray that the teams, training, and tools going out from our network will help believers to share their faith effectively with others, so the Good News can break through hardened hearts with His powerful love.

With the benefits of media and technology on the side of passionate believers, many barriers that hinder our evangelism efforts are shattered.

National leaders, who are trained media professionals, staff multiple regional centers in strategic locations around the world and create culturally relevant content in their heart languages.

Please share some of your own examples of spiritual breakthroughs around the world.

Honest Confessions

Timothy P, regional director of GNPI-SE Asia

My friend and partner in sharing the Gospel sent this report of his trip to a rural village for training with tools from our regional center. He showed the life of Christ movie on his computer and taught some of the people about Christ. One of the men admitted he is struggling in his faith; he said,

I am one of elders in my village. There were no Christians in our village before this year. We had not even heard about Christianity.

When the teacher came to our village, he showed a film of the life of Christ to my wife and daughter, and he taught them about Jesus. They told me about Jesus, the true and unrivaled God. The teacher also told me about Jesus, then I understood the difference between Jesus and other gods. However, I did not care and pretended to know nothing because I am an elder of the village and the one who leads and manages religious matters. I closed my eyes and ears in order not to be persuaded.

The second time the teacher visited our village, he gave my daughter a book entitled The Owner of the Universe whom Everyone Shall Worship. After the teacher left, I read the book and saw some differences between our way of worship and theirs. The book says, since human beings are imperfect, we cannot observe all of the Five Precepts in Buddhism. If a person relies on his or her own effort, surely he or she will go to Hell. Thus, in order to be free from Hell, one must rely on God alone. While I was reading the book, I began to consider that I am not totally free from sin myself. Then I realized that Jesus Christ has overcome all of the Five Maras and revealed Himself as the true Savior of the world.

These are my confessions from the bottom of my heart. My wife and daughter believe in Jesus absolutely. I also want to accept Jesus Christ as God in my heart. For the time being, I cannot change. There are many hindrances for me, and I have to take some time to prepare. Please pray for me. Thank you.

Whatever Happens

Gustavo Velázquez, Regional Director of GNPI-Piedras Negras, Mexico

This Pase lo que Pase (Whatever Happens) video was filmed in New York under the direction of our coworker Pablo Perales.

Abe Mendoza, a Christian singer from Piedras Negras, Mexico, is featured in the video. He grew up in the Christian faith playing, singing, and writing his own songs for God. Abe has traveled through the United States, Mexico, and Central America sharing his music.

Abe’s father was a pastor for many years, but he died this year. At the end of the video, Abe dedicates this video and his ministry to his father.

 

An Easier Journey

John Khauka, Bulambuli District of Uganda

I have been a Christian for over 20 years. One of the reasons I became an evangelist was to reach out to as many people as possible. The Great Commission is dear to my heart, and I have kept the faith, committing myself to mission work even with the financial, social, and other challenges of full-time ministry.

I was introduced to GNPI in 2010 when they opened the office in Uganda. By then I was actively involved in evangelism in my village, Bikhonge. Having the Solar Kits has been more than a blessing.

I cannot thank God enough for what He has achieved through the kits. I never imagined I would travel to places outside my village, but the number of people the films attract inspire me. I have reached many people; it’s something I never would have done without the use of this portable technology.

The defining moment in my evangelism efforts occurred when we visited Buvuma Island on Lake Victoria. I can testify that God is never limited by anything. He can reach people in the farthest places. I am humbled to be His vessel of ministry. GNPI makes the journey easier, and I am glad for the partnership.

Contact GNPI at www.gnpi.org/solarkits if you would like to help make the journey easier for another Christian worker.

 

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.

Young Visitors

Gustavo Velázquez, Regional Director of GNPI-Piedras Negras, Mexico

Students from two local schools visited our office, a group of fifth graders and college students. Both groups came to the radio station and participated with Abi in the live morning program Resplandece (Shine). Click here to listen to Buenas Nuevas Radio.

At the end of the program, we gave them some of our materials and explained the purpose of our regional center and overall ministry. They were very happy to be with us and were impressed by what we are doing to share the Message of God’s Word.

It’s our pleasure to show hospitality to this new generation as they learn to follow Christ.

 

Changed: Healed to Help Others

Gayle Silkwood of GNPI-Chiang Mai, Thailand

We love sharing the stories of how God changes lives. When people see these amazing testimonies, they are often encouraged in their personal walk or drawn to find out how they can have the same peace and joy.

Our production team traveled to northern Thailand to interview Pastor Mao. He shared his inspiring testimony as one who prayed and dedicated his life to Christ. The Lord spared him from the debilitating results of a brain tumor and gave him a growing ministry in his village.

Raised in a Christian home in Bangkok, Thailand, Mao remembers worship services and prayer times at church, but admits he was a nominal Christian back then. Church was something his family did, but he had little interest. His parents sent him to Chiang Rai in northern Thailand when he was nine years old where he lived in a Christian dormitory and did his studies. Still he had no inner spiritual understanding of the Savior Jesus. He got involved in a lifestyle of drugs and gangs.

By God’s grace and despite poor choices, God never abandoned him. He was given many opportunities to commit his life to God. It eventually occurred to him that God’s love for him was real. He made the decision to attend Bible college, got his Masters in Biblical studies, and became a pastor.

After years of working in the church, he began to have severe migraines. He was on several different medications, then one doctor did a more thorough check-up and discovered an egg-sized tumor in his brain near the base of his skull. There were few options in this case. If they did nothing, Pastor Mao would surely die, or there was a risky surgery that would most likely cause major disabilities if he even survived.

In his despair and pain, Pastor Mao cried out to the Lord for help. Gradually, his anxiety, stress, and fear were replaced with peace, hope, and strength. He became resolved to accept death if it was God’s will for him. At the same time, he prayed that if he must remain on earth he would be healed with no handicaps, so he could continue to serve. He realized he was asking for a miracle, but knew his God was capable of the impossible. Surgery was performed and to the surprise of the surgeon, the hole left by the large tumor instantly closed up. Pastor Mao had a complete recovery and continues to encourage others to put their trust in the only living God who saves.
