Pray for Uganda

Even though Idi Amin’s dictatorship over Uganda ended in 1979, the pain and scars left by his rule run deep. This man is known in history as one of the most brutal and murderous rulers of all time. Uganda is healing, but this nation needs our prayers.

  • Only 4% of the population is over the age of 55.
  • 1.5 million people are living with HIV and AIDS.
  • 12 million people do not have access to a safe water source.
  • 18 million people have no sanitation services.

However, there is hope! The spiritual horizon is bursting with opportunities. GNPI opened a regional center in Mbale, Uganda, in 2010. In the four years that center has been operational, partnerships have been formed with a passionate team of missionaries, as well as with two local colleges. GNPI-Uganda is working side by side with these educational institutions to train and create resources for Ugandan Christians to use as they bring hope to their people.

Join us in praying for Uganda.

Pray for Mexico

Mexico is home to one GNPI regional center and one NOMaD team. These teams of dedicated Christians are working hard to create culturally relevant media that will bring the Good News of Jesus to their people.

GNPI-Mexico launched an Internet radio station last fall, and it is gaining traction. They have recently added a live, evangelistic program that airs from 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. They are having such a good response and hope to add another day soon. If you would like to tune in online, here is a link: http://www.buenasnuevasradio.com/

Please feel free to share that link with your Spanish-speaking friends!

We want to offer this video to you to help you to pray for Mexico.

God’s Love Invading Thailand

More than once over the last few months, Tom Silkwood, regional director for GNPI-Thailand, has said, “God is on the move in Thailand like I’ve never seen before.”

Thai Christians are excited to share how they are experiencing God, and Tom and his staff are becoming more and more passionate about telling “His” story by producing true-story videos of how God is moving.

Along with continual production of BEC (Biblical Extension Courses), GNPI-Thailand is hard at work on two additional series, Movement Everywhere and Testimony. Testimony reveals how God is moving and working in the lives of individuals, and Movement Everywhere shows God’s active involvement in churches and organizations.

As you read, keep in mind that in Thailand:

Christians make up only 1.2% of the population
Buddhists make up 93.6%
Muslims make up almost 4.9%

Thailand

God is honoring the faithfulness of GNPI-Thailand. A request came from The Christian University of Thailand, which was looking for Christian video resources for a five-day conference on campus. GNPI-Thailand was thrilled to provide the needed materials, which included some of the Movement Everywhere and Testimony series.

Tom said, “The university used our Testimony programs every morning for their staff. During the morning sessions, our Testimony programs were seen on Facebook and were broadcast by the university’s television station. Overall, they were seen by over 2,000 students, professors, and staff. It is a Christian university, but many of the students aren’t Christians. Praise the Lord!”

Will you pray with us for Thailand and our regional center staff there, especially in the light of the recent riots in Bangkok? Pray that Christians in Thailand will stand boldly for Christ and be the door through which his radical, irresistible love invades that nation.

 

 

The Global Gospel in India

GNPI’s regional center in Damoh, India, is like a machine when it comes to cranking out new language productions of The Global Gospel! They have finished five languages in a little more than a year!

The thing is, after a new language is produced, it has to be duplicated and distributed before it reaches anyone, which costs about two dollars per copy.

Here is a quick look at how many DVDs have recently been distributed by GNPI-Damoh. And, these numbers only represent three of five completed languages that are available right now for distribution:

1,460 copies in Hindi. These were given to Christian preachers, individuals, families, children’s homes, other ministries in India, NGOs, schools, and village leaders near Damoh.

800 copies in Urdu. One interesting piece of information about the Urdu language is that many Indian Muslims speak this language. Five hundred copies have gone to individuals including many Muslim leaders and families. Mr. B.—the Muslim narrator of The Global Gospel in Urdu–took 200 copies to give to his circle of friends!

1,050 copies of the Marathi language. A government employee who is a friend of the ministry asked for 1,000 copies! He also works with many Indian radio studios and reaches out to many Indian fishermen.

On top of this amazing success, the Bengali and Gujarati languages are ready for duplication. With five more languages in various stages of production, duplication means multiplication!

Go Damoh!
