A Joy to Serve

My son and I were part of a group of 21 people from six different churches who visited Reynosa, Mexico, for a week in December. We built a small house, conducted a VBS, held a medical clinic, planted a church, and visited various ministries to offer encouragement.

I also had the chance to personally deliver The Global Gospel in Spanish to some pastors in Mexico.

It was a joy to serve in this way, and we pray it was also a blessing to the people we met.

Finally Rejoicing

(This “Highlights of the Year” blog was originally posted on October 1, 2015. It was a great answer to our many prayers for this specific language.)

The Global Gospel in Spanish was finally released earlier this year! After many long delays to get final permission for the Spanish translation of the Scriptures, it is our great joy to share this version.

GNPI’s International Consultant Bob Gurwell discusses with International Director Bob Sartoris why this version is so special.

You can view and share all 88 stories on social media via YouTube, watch and download the videos on Vimeo, or call and order the DVD from our office.

Celebrating an Italian Blessing

Smithfield Christian Church in Carl Junction, Missouri, sponsored The Global Gospel in Italian. When they reached their goal, the church members threw a party to celebrate. They found several creative ways to track their progress over the last six months.

Their minister Robert Lewis summed up the experience by saying, “It’s a blessing to see how God works through people who are obedient to Him.”

 

An Enduring Gift

GNPI would like to offer this Christmas gift to our ministry partners.

God Is Our Sustenance

Isaac Masiga, Regional Director of GNPI-Kenya

We thank God for His sustenance. Abubakar Mwenda is a well-known actor in Kenya. His passion to do a voice for The Global Gospel in Swahili amazed us.

He didn’t do it for money. We didn’t have much to pay him, but he was okay with helping anyway. He did the project during Islamic prayer times. We would see him sneak out to go pray when the time came, then he would come back into the studio and continue playing the part of Jesus.

When the project was done, our project coordinator wanted to finalize his contract for payment. She asked Abubakar, “Which roles did you play in this project? Was it just Jesus or were there any other roles?” He answered, “Correction, it’s not just Jesus, it’s JESUS!” For him playing the role of Jesus was a big deal. We know God is working in his life through this project.

We pray God will continue to make Himself known to many Swahili speakers through this project.

 

The “Teachings of Jesus” Plan

GNPI continues to work on The Global Gospel in the top 25 languages.

In addition to the full series, GNPI is working to make selected stories from The Global Gospel available in discipleship plans on the YouVersion Bible app.

The Hindi version of the same plan was released last week.
We thank God for new opportunities to spread His Word around the world!

 

 

In Every Season

Our enemy does his best to thwart efforts to spread the Gospel. Media can be one of his best tools to deliver news of suffering, tragedy, or pain.

Just as Christ can redeem individuals, He can also redeem media. He uses it to introduce Good News around the world. His power transcends any barrier standing in the way of this Message.

This Truth is the reason for GNPI’s 2015 theme: Boundless. This year we can see many examples of God’s far reaching love, power, and faithfulness throughout our network. In every season, the Message of Jesus is true. May God be glorified!

Topping It Off

Praise the Lord with us as we celebrate a ministry milestone! Since 2012, we have been working toward our goal of completing  The Global Gospel in the world’s top 25 languages. Thanks to God’s faithfulness and your generosity, all 25 of these languages are now fully funded and production is completed or in progress for all 25.

For information on other languages being produced, go to www.theglobalgospel.org.

A New Way to Slice It

We are within reach of our goal to produce The Global Gospel in the world’s top 25 languages by the end of 2015. Praise God for His faithfulness and the generosity of His people! We are down to funding the last three languages.

Smithfield Christian Church in Carl Junction, Missouri, has pledged funds toward the Italian language of The Global Gospel. They found a fun way to keep track of their commitment via the Pizza Tracker they created.

We recently received this message from our friends at Smithfield:

“Just a quick picture of our pizza tracker.

We pulled our 2nd piece off of it today.

Counting the additional gifts we received today,

we are now a little over $1,900 along the way.”

 

 

 

 

We thank God for this exciting progress and for all the partners who have worked together to make this happen! We are still looking for a production partner to help with the Turkish language. For more details, visit www.gnpi.org.
