It can be intimidating to share the hope of Jesus with people from different faith backgrounds. The expanding GNPI network allows you to be part of an effective team working together in more than 160 nations to produce global media, train international leaders, and impact the lives of millions.
Your partnership is helping Timothy P. of GNPI-SE Asia equip leaders and churches to thrive through practical, month-long trainings. The first event was held six months ago. Several participants share what they learned about the one true God. It’s a careful strategy to present Christ to Buddhists in Southeast Asia, and it is stirring a new excitement as well as transforming the lives of those who participate.
Timothy is now hosting the fourth month-long training with 13 more people from around the region. Click here to watch testimonies from the first training.
Isn’t it encouraging to watch people who are learning to trust the Lord daily? For those not yet connected to a family of believers, media can be a vehicle to move people forward in faith. Learn how your gifts are touching individuals for Christ through GNPI coworkers in Mexico and Thailand.
Thank you for helping others to encounter Christ on this journey of life.

Your support is transforming individual lives, sustaining marriages, and strengthening the Church in SE Asia.Timothy P. of GNPI-SE Asia shares this encouraging testimony:
A new believer writes, “An evangelist who uses GNPI resources came to our village and met with my husband. Then my husband wanted to accept Jesus Christ and be baptized. I was so upset and angry with him. I told him that if he chose to be baptized, we must divorce. My husband ignored what I said, and he explained to me that Jesus Christ is the true and living God. Last month his explanations touched my heart. Later he took me to the evangelist who taught me with the Christian media.
Finally I was fully convinced that Jesus Christ is the true God and Savior, so I chose to be baptized. Now I tell my friends about Jesus in the factory where I work.”
Thank you for helping people in SE Asia become fully convinced about the hope of Jesus.
Your giving is influencing young students for Christ in Tanzania through a Solar Kit.
Christian workers in Tanzania write, “Praise the Lord! We are grateful for the Solar Kit which has been instrumental in proclaiming the Gospel in a Muslim dominated school.”
The school has 431 pupils and only six pupils are Christians. The headmaster allows the Christian workers to show films to the pupils. The entire school turns out on Wednesday and Friday afternoons to watch the Old Testament movies. This provides a good platform to share with these children without resistance. After the films, the Christian workers give a conclusion and explain where those biblical principles are found in Scripture.
These Christian workers are encouraged and excited. They said, “We believe the Word of God is being sown in these young souls, and we expect to obtain a great harvest in the future. We also believe God will give us favor in other schools and open more doors to reach out to those who don’t know Christ.”
Tom Ommemo of GNPI-Nairobi, Kenya, is working directly with the Christian workers in Tanzania on your behalf to deliver these evangelistic tools. Tom validates their experience with his own when sharing the Gospel in African villages.

One truth in Kingdom work is that the more effort and vision are extended to reach people, the more the evil one strives to discourage and destroy.
As our Piedras Negras team gathered to discuss their future productions and people they hoped to reach, they were not ignorant of Satan’s schemes. They dreamed about reaching cities such as Pachuca and Querétaro, as well as the countries of Nicaragua, Puerto Rico, and Chile.
As some of these exciting plans began to take shape over the last year, a key staff person made the difficult decision to move his family to Querétaro for the benefit of his special needs son.
The news of Pablo’s leaving devastated the team in Piedras Negras, yet a part-time staff member Ali stepped up to help fill the gap.
Pablo is still working with the Piedras Negras team part of the time, and his son is steadily improving with the special training and attention available in Querétaro. In addition, God is using Pablo as the web designer, videographer, graphics designer, and trainer to help launch an exciting new church planting effort called Impacto Network.
Gustavo Velázquez, regional director of GNPI-Piedras Negras said, “Satan had plans to reduce and discourage us. After seeing Pablo, his family, and his work, I know that they are well, and so are we. What Satan tried to do has failed.”
Amen! What Satan tried to do at Calvary failed too, and that is Good News!
Imagine your local school board gathering to discuss which new book titles are best for their teachers’ curriculum. Imagine a college faculty meeting to learn how to incorporate relevant Christian thought into their university culture. Our global partner is accomplishing this kind of impact with your help.
Dr. Sergei Golovin of GNPI-Eurasia is working to “shine the light of the Good News in the darkness of atheism and communist ideology imposed on many generations in our part of the world 100 years ago!”
Sergei recently helped organize and teach at an international conference for leading Christian intellectuals who met to discuss various approaches to shift the post-communist world mentality toward a Bible-based worldview. All the sessions and seminars were recorded on video and streamed over the Internet. The resources are now available online and can be accessed by the people in remote and restricted areas. Sergei says, “It is amazing how media multiplies and empowers our limited efforts!”
Sergei was encouraged to see many of his former students now managing their own ministries or serving in the public offices to make a real impact on society.
