Easter Resources 2018

Life can be full of heartache, suffering, and pain. That’s why Jesus came to earth to show us victory when He died and rose again! You can discover new hope in Jesus this Easter.

Please enjoy these free resources from GNPI as you celebrate and point your friends toward this great day. We have several new languages of discipleship plans available on YouVersion this year as well as some classics.


February 2018 Prayer Update

Your prayers for GNPI are making an impact around the world. Join us as we praise God for our ministry partners and for the way He is working through our network.

“. . . my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name. Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.” — John 16:23-24 (NIV)


Training 2,000 Prison Officers in Kenya: Isaac Masiga of GNPI-Nairobi, Kenya, writes, “Praise the Lord! One of our ministry partners saw God change hearts as she ministered to approximately 2,000 officers using one of our productions, Dume Halisi, in a training college for prison staff. Dume Halisi is a film about a group of men who mistreat women and neglect their children but later change after going through counseling and training sessions.”

Investing in Youth: Stephen Muturi of GNPI-Mbale, Uganda, writes, “Praise the Lord! Our team provided media coverage for the graduation ceremony at the nearby Messiah Theological Institute (MTI). We also invited the students to the office for a tour and gave them a send-off package with our DVDs. MTI continues to be a major partner in our Solar Kit ministry. One of the MTI students led a discipleship course and used a Solar Kit in a nearby village. He was encouraged by the number of people who came to watch the Christian movie he showed.”

A Good Platform among Muslims: 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 us to show films to the pupils. The entire school has been turning out on Wednesday and Friday afternoons to watch the Old Testament movies. This has given us a good platform to share with these children without resistance. After the films, we give our conclusion and explain where those biblical principles are found in Scripture. 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.”

Making Disciples in South Africa: The Project Nomad-Johannesburg, South Africa, team has released a new series, 42-Day Discipleship Plan. Pray the Lord will use it to reach youth in this multicultural country with 13 national languages and a declining educational system.


Marriage Enrichment: Gustavo Velázquez of GNPI-Piedras Negras, Mexico, writes, “Pray for the lessons about marriage. We have started the editing, and we want to finish it on schedule. Pray for God to use these programs to help many marriages.”

Working Together: Sergio Alvarado of IMPACTO Latino writes, “Many things in life are better when shared with other people. Ministry is one of those things. GNPI has been a long time partner with the IMPACTO Latino team. They have supported the IMPACTO network project with multimedia equipment that is being used to develop resources for recruitment and training. Pablo Perales, who serves with GNPI from Querétaro, is assisting us in the area of multimedia and design. We are so grateful for these organizations that willingly share their resources so that together we are able to reach more people than we could on our own.”

Standing on the Scriptures: The Project Nomad-Santiago, Chile, team is working on a Bible study series in partnership with the Christian Restoration Bible Seminary. The study is designed to help answer questions about what some view as biblical discrepancies. Pray for those who watch it to see how the Spirit of God was inspiring and controlling the development of the Scriptures.


Looking Forward in the Philippines: Nenette Pacoli of GNPI-Manila, Philippines, writes, “Praise the Lord for helping us complete 275 episodes in our first year of the devotional series, Faith Matters, too! In addition we have submitted our first devotional plan for YouVersion. We look forward to more episodes, more avenues for broadcast, more people to be encouraged and pointed towards God.”

Kuya Caloy, host of Faith Matters, too!

Excellent Training: Timothy P. of GNPI-SE Asia writes, “Praise the Lord! We have finished another month-long leadership training. We had 10 trainees, and it was excellent. The president of a Bible school attended one of the the training events and said these lessons should be taught among preachers. He plans to teach these lessons at his school so students will become more effective in reaching others for Christ.”

Reaching Thai Speakers: Praise the Lord for using GNPI-Chiang Mai, Thailand, to reach Thai speakers throughout the world. Viewership of their three key productions, Changed, Movement Everywhere, and Biblical Extension Courses in Thai and Lisu, increased by 42 percent this year!


National Television Broadcast in India: Manee Massey of GNPI-Damoh, India, writes, “Pray for the Lord to continue to make our national Christmas broadcast as impactful as possible. The program included a Gospel presentation and two music videos with children and young adults. We are following up with the viewers to share more Christian materials, answer their questions, and connect them with believers in their areas.”

Project Nomad Training in India:
The year started with a training for trainers in Damoh, India, where Project Nomad team members from India and Thailand discussed effective ways to lead and encourage new Nomad teams as well as the established teams in the field. While in India, Executive Director Mike Schrage and International Director Mark Johnson also visited teams in Shillong, Varanasi, and Chennai. Other teams met together during this trip to identify new avenues to share the hope of Christ with their regions of the massive country of India. Pray for these teams as they work on new productions and reach out to their neighbors with the power of video storytelling.


Disciples Multiply: Sergei Golovin of GNPI-Eurasia writes, “We are still experiencing the same blessing the first church in Jerusalem received through persecutions and dispersion. Rather than declining in numbers, the movement multiplies through the partners and volunteers who spread the Message everywhere they flee. As a result, I am mostly involved in training and coaching. I enjoy seeing former students and partners growing in faith and leading new disciples. May the Lord be praised!”

A Great Platform: Sergei Golovin of GNPI-Eurasia writes, “One of the most important events of 2017 was the Eastern European Leadership Forum (EELF) where I coordinated the apologetics section. EELF is becoming a great platform for developing national Christian leaders from the countries of the former Soviet Union. Praise the Lord!”

Overall Ministry

Jesus Story Broadcast: Praise the Lord! A ministry partner in Cyprus has produced The Global Gospel (TGG) as a new series called, Jesus Story, which is a televised program for kids and includes an introduction, several stories, and a closing about the main theme in 13 half-hour episodes. The Jesus Story series began airing last month on SAT-7 KIDS with nearly five million youth from the ages of 6-13 viewing the programs in the Arabic language alone! Christian workers are following up with Jesus Story viewers on two different Facebook groups and distributing children’s books as a supplement to the series. A SAT-7 program director says the project is the most biblically based content he’s ever aired.

New Angle Media Project Multiplies: The Lord is opening doors in areas where people are persecuted for their faith. The New Angle Media Project began as a simple idea for children’s stories and grew into a strategic plan to reach more people by putting the stories on a free app, adding questions for interaction, and working with internationals to illustrate and animate the project for multicultural appeal. Pray for the completion of this project which is currently being tested in Indonesia among their population of 95 million Muslims. It includes interactive children’s stories from both the Old and New Testament.

International Travel: Praise the Lord for safe trips and fruitful meetings. Executive Director Mike Schrage and International Director Mark Johnson recently visited coworkers in Mexico, India, and North Africa. You can keep up with Mark’s live updates on our Facebook page.

Jesus Story Broadcast

You know how exciting it is to reach a long-term goal. You have helped GNPI reach a milestone with one of our most ambitious projects. It’s a special series airing for children in the Middle East.

A ministry partner in Cyprus has produced The Global Gospel (TGG) as a new series called Jesus Story which is a televised program for kids and includes an introduction, several stories, and a closing about the main theme in 13 half-hour episodes.

The Arabic Jesus Story series began airing last month on SAT-7 KIDS with nearly five million youth from the ages of 6-13 viewing the programs in the Arabic language alone! The release date was close to the 10-year anniversary of the station. Viewers tune in from every country in the region, with the largest audience in Egypt, followed by Syria, Morocco, and Yemen. Christian workers are following up with Jesus Story viewers on two different Facebook groups and distributing children’s books as a supplement to the series. A SAT-7 program director says the project is the most biblically based content he’s ever aired. Additional production has moved quickly, and the Jesus Story will soon be released in Farsi and Turkish.

Seasonal Plans

Do you ever feel like you are neglecting God’s Word? We’ve all heard the sermon that challenged us. We promised ourselves that we would go back and look up the verses in our Bibles or on our phones to study more, but the busyness of life hindered our plans.

The same human dilemma occurs whether we live in America, China, or Myanmar. Yet God is helping His people get into His Word with the phones in our pockets and purses. It’s easier than ever to access Scripture, and the completion numbers are proving that people who sign up for Bible plans in their heart languages are able to learn more about God and His Word.

These GNPI plans which you helped to fund are finding their way into the hearts of seekers in languages we will never learn and in countries we will never be allowed to visit. The GNPI network has provided content for discipleship plans on YouVersion in ten languages making the practical studies of God’s Word available to nearly 2.4 billion people!

The following plans focus on the birth of our Savior.








Min Nan:













Other plans and language versions highlight the life and resurrection of Christ.

Because of your partnership, more people have an opportunity to know Jesus Christ in a way they can easily understand.

Going Strong

The Lord is using The Global Gospel (TGG) in new and tremendous ways. For those who are new to our ministry, TGG is a series of short videos which present the life and teachings of Jesus using colorful illustrations and dramatic Bible readings in the most widely spoken languages of the world.

One ministry partner has made a TGG version called Jesus Story. It is a television series for kids and is broadcasting this fall on Sat-7 in the Arabic and Farsi languages. This version includes an introduction, several of the stories, and a closing about the main point into 13 half-hour episodes. These ministry partners estimate that nearly five million youth from the ages of 6-13 will be able to view the programs in the Arabic language alone! GNPI regional centers around the world may consider using this template for their own Jesus Story productions.

Our team in Mexico is working on a sign language version of TGG. Gustavo Velázquez of GNPI-Piedras Negras, Mexico, says, “We were inspired by the commitment of our ministry partners to share the Gospel. We were also impressed to see the excitement of the deaf students who participated in this project.

In September we traveled to Matamoros, Tamaulipas, to record the last part of this project.

In January we had the opportunity to personally deliver, through a friend of GNPI, 500 thumbdrives with many GNPI materials, including The Global Gospel, to 500 Chinese house church pastors. The thumb drives were distributed secretly as the leaders strategically met in a neighboring country. GNPI recently prepared 30 more flash drives with TGG and other resources for this same ministry partner to take to a Project Nomad training in another part of Asia this fall.

Sergei Golovin of GNPI-Eurasia shares another online platform for The Global Gospel (TGG) in Russian. This team used the Everlasting Gospel translation for this TGG version, and the translation ministry is really excited. They posted it on their own website with a comment that it is the best visual presentation of the Gospel they know of so far. They provided a link to the GNPI website as well.

GNPI is adding discussion questions to each version of TGG this year. There are three questions for each story on the YouTube and Vimeo sites. Study questions are now available for English, Chinese, Thai, Swahili, and Burmese.

Our team in Damoh has completed TGG in ten languages for India. New formats also include mp3 audio files for villages in India. An Internet radio station began broadcasting The Global Gospel in the Urdu language 18 months ago.

Khuram Gill of Gospel Radio said, “I am still using The Global Gospel in Urdu. I started using this program in January 2016 and continue to broadcast it randomly. These are very blessed, short messages. I love them. Please keep it up. You are doing great job for His kingdom. May God bless all of you abundantly and use you more and more for saving souls and for His glory, in Jesus Christ’s name we ask. Amen.”

To date, more than 31,425 people have completed plans and tracks incorporating the videos from The Global Gospel on their favorite app.






Last year representatives from Free Bible images asked if they could use the TGG images on their website. They started with photos and stories about the Resurrection in the spring of 2016. Paul Thompson of Free Bible images writes,

“Our users were delighted with the quality of the artwork and as the videos follow the Bible narration, they found them to be excellent visuals for explaining the events of Easter. Each story on our web pages has a Video link to the GNPI Vimeo channel showing all 20 translations of that Bible video.”

Free Bible images then expanded to the rest of the photos and videos about TGG. Their end of the year report stated:

“In 2016 we had 48,674 sets of GNPI images downloaded in PowerPoint, PDF, or Keynote formats for teaching. Users on our site can also view any set of GNPI stories in our StoryView that runs a slideshow of the images with the Bible text from the Net Bible. We had 214,987 GNPI stories read online in StoryView in 2016, and we expect this figure to keep rising. These views and downloads took place in 160 different countries.”

With The GNPI App, tools like TGG are readily accessible for your next visit with an international student, refugee, or someone you meet on a mission trip. As more languages of TGG are added and updated, Thailand, South Korea, and Tanzania have become some of the top regions consistently viewing TGG on YouTube. Our statistics reveal that viewers are watching mainly on mobile devices.

These numbers compare the first six months of this year with the first six months of last year:

  • The amount of time watching TGG videos is 119,336 minutes compared to 64,288 (185% increase from last year).
  • Total number of views of TGG videos is 103,418 compared to 46,373 (223% increase).
  • The number of shares of TGG videos is 1,159 compared to 431 (274% increase).
  • The most watched video in the first half of this year was the Parable of the Ten Virgins in Thai (#81). Last year it was The Lord’s Prayer in Hindi (#36)

As of September 2017, 28 languages are completed, and 13 are in progress or being pursued.

We praise the Lord for using TGG beyond what we asked or imagined!








Powerful Influence

It is amazing to see how the Lord can use our small efforts to make a lasting impact in the lives of others. As He multiplied the fish and loaves, He often takes individual offerings and uses them to meet the needs of others. Our powerful God may work through a few dollars or a quick click on a mobile device to start transforming lives.

Incredible Potential

Manee Massey, Regional Director of Damoh, India

The Global Gospel (TGG) is making a great impact in India. As we look at the numbers of people who speak these languages, we estimate 877 million people could hear the Gospel in the ten languages we have prepared: Hindi, Bengali, Gujarati, Malayalam, Marathi, Nepali, Tamil, Telugu, Punjabi, and Urdu.

For those who are unfamiliar with this resource, The Global Gospel is a series of short videos which present the life and teachings of Jesus using colorful illustrations and dramatic Bible readings.

We have replicated and distributed nearly 3,000 DVDs in the Hindi language and almost 1,000 DVDs in each of the other languages. We have also distributed approximately 3,000 digital copies of each TGG language on USB drives, the Internet, SD cards, and through the Solar Kits.

Besides India, these languages are spoken in Pakistan, Nepal, and Bangladesh. We have worked to make sure TGG is available in all the languages in our region. We see such incredible potential!

Click here to access all the available languages on the GNPI website, or download The GNPI App on your Apple or Android device. Discussion questions are being added to each language as well.

New Features for “The Global Gospel”

Dasha, a ministry partner from Ukraine, explains how to find discussion questions for the different language versions of The Global Gospel. We are excited about this new feature.

Download The GNPI App and use it to share the Gospel with your friends from other countries or when you go on a mission trip.
