Truly Surrendered

Your gifts to GNPI are changing lives! Wambi George from the Church of Christ in the Bulambuli District of Eastern Uganda shares how God used a GNPI production in the transformation of his marriage.

Wambi George explains,

Before I knew Christ, I got entangled in a lot of bad things. I was an alcoholic. I was promiscuous, and I also practiced witchcraft.

The movie called Ndume Halisi taught me a lot of things. I used to be so furious. I beat my wife every time she argued with me about anything. The movie has taught me to be kind and loving and to include my wife in decision making.

To all the other people out there, I would advise you to confess Jesus Christ as your Savior. Then go home and enjoy your marriages happily as I do today.

I thank God who has fought and won many battles for me. If I was still going in my old ways of witchcraft and all the other things, I don’t know where I would be, or even if I would be alive if it were not for Christ.

With your help, we can continue to show people like Wambi George the love of Christ in culturally relevant ways.

Prayers & Praises

Thank you for joining the GNPI prayer team to impact the world.

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade . . .” — 1 Peter 1:3-4 (NIV)

YouVersion Partner Portal: Praise the Lord! YouVersion recently released a new Partner Portal which makes it easier than ever for our GNPI network to create and submit plans. With the release of eight new plans in Chinese and Thai, four new plans in Cantonese, and a new plan in Burmese, GNPI now has content in nine languages. While all of our plans currently feature The Global Gospel, new plans will include other video content giving our regional centers another platform to distribute their materials to a larger audience.

Amazing Opportunity: Timothy P. of GNPI-SE Asia says, “Praise the Lord for the opportunity He’s given us to train 14 Christian leaders this month. These excited leaders will return to their regions equipped to train others in sharing the Gospel. Our staff is also finalizing a Thanksgiving program for churches in this region and making plans to distribute it on DVDs and social media. We are working on scripts for The Global Gospel in the Karen language as well.”

Building Bridges: Isaac Masiga of GNPI-Nairobi, Kenya, writes, “Please pray for God’s wisdom for us as we focus on a project to encourage college students to remain strong in their faith and complete another project to reach out to Muslims.”

Every 30 Seconds: Project Nomad-Johannesburg, South Africa, is addressing the horrific issue of human trafficking with a video to raise awareness. The video aired this month on SABC 3 during the “Afternoon Express” program. The coverage area of the station included the entire country of South Africa. You are helping GNPI teams address important social issues from a biblical perspective within their own cultures. Please pray for opportunities in South Africa, and watch the video if you would like to learn more.

Reaching our Illiterate Audience: A pastor in northern India shares, “We thank GNPI for enabling us to share Christ through the enjoyable and understandable formats of media. Since our target audience is a part of the demographic in the field that is illiterate, they tend to appreciate Christianity visually and audibly instead of through reading. Therefore, the Solar Kits provided to us by GNPI have been a success. We want to make it a priority to ensure that our ministry partners cover as many village churches as possible with these Solar Kits so more and more people may understand the Gospel.

Catching the Vision

Your gifts are breathing new life into church planting efforts in the Philippines!

Paul Wilson and his wife have been working in the central Philippines since 1984. This island has approximately 100 churches, and the goal of Paul and the Filipino church leaders is to double the number of churches in the next three years. They’re challenging every church to have a baby. They are using technology, training, and livelihood support to provide for the workers in these new areas.

Paul invited some of the brightest young people from the different churches to come to Bacolod for GNPI’s Project Nomad training last May. Paul says, “These young people are adept at technology, and they were excited to get the training. A new generation is catching the vision to reach those who don’t know Christ and to start new churches.”

Thank you for helping to multiply churches in the Philippines through Project Nomad.

 

Tools in the Toolbox

The Project Nomad-Santiago, Chile, team wants to help Spanish-speaking churches grow and to provide quality media for their outreach.

The following video shows a sample of one resource they’ve designed. All of the material is available for free download in three lengths of 15, 30, or 60 seconds for use in audiovisual projects. The music is original. This project will ultimately include background elements along with instructions on how to put together a high quality visual presentation along with the audio background.  

Through Project Nomad, you have made culturally relevant media available to over 101 million people worldwide and shared the Gospel with 43 people for every dollar given.

Would you consider a $25 gift right now to enable Nomad teams to keep adding tools to reach more people with the Good News?

Making Disciples in South Africa

How do you reach youth in a multicultural country with 13 national languages and a declining educational system? Our young and creative Nomad team in Johannesburg is working to address the spiritual needs in their own culture.

Geoff Gordon-Stuart of Project Nomad-Johannesburg, South Africa

The following is a brief overview of our newest series.

We are in the final stages of editing and distribution for the next ten videos for the 42-Day Discipleship Guide series. Our Talents and Testimonies series continues to grow. We are seeking more speakers who bear good fruit and can be an example to the youth of South Africa.

We made a new contact regarding a potential series called the 5-Minute Theologian. It’s sound theology in an upbeat and fast presentation with a variety of speakers. The series is still in the planning and discussion phase, but we see the possibility for significant outreach for this project.

Thank you for your support as we continue to seek out opportunities for our team to reflect God’s glory so His Name will be great among the nations. Together we are making disciples in South Africa.

 

Prayers & Praises

Praise be to the Lord the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. — I Chronicles 16:36 (NIV)

Sharing With Families: Timothy P. of GNPI-SE Asia writes, “Ten members of a local family came by our training center and asked us to tell them about the true God, so we shared we them throughout the day and evening using our GNPI resources. Pray for them to accept the truth and decide to worship Jesus Christ.”

New Disciples: Nenette Pacoli of GNPI-Manila, Philippines, writes, “One of the presenters on the Say It Forward (SIF) series had a lady contact her about accepting Christ as her Savior! This presenter, Dr. Rhoda R. Formales, is now following up in discipleship. Another lady has made plans to meet Dr. Formales and talk with her about a problematic relationship. Dr. Formales oversees GNPI-Manila, Philippines, as a board member and oversees the use of the Nomad Production Kit at one of the local churches. Dr. Formales was unsure about sharing on SIF, but the Lord is working through our partnership.”

Spiritual Fruit: Geoff Gordon Stuart of Project Nomad-Johannesburg, South Africa, writes, “PTL! The progress on the 42-Day Discipleship Guide series is quite encouraging. It’s going out, and we pray that God uses the project to draw His people near to Him. We are already seeing fruit. Thank you so much for your prayers.”

Building Strong Marriages: Manee Massey of GNPI-Damoh, India, writes, “Our third episode of the Zindagi Aaj (Life Today) series is about the problem of equality and respect in marriage. Sometimes working women have higher-paying jobs than men. This causes some wives to treat their husbands badly, and lots of problems develop. Our program highlights this issue and offers some solutions to consider. We are working on post-productions of the first three episodes of the series and will schedule them for broadcast once all 13 are recorded. We are excited about the series!”

Public School Visits: Isaac Masiga of GNPI-Nairobi, Kenya, writes,We have been revisiting area schools to follow-up, gather feedback, and record student testimonies. Pray for God to use us to help African students to know the love of Christ.”

Opportunity of a Lifetime

A ministry partner who provided Project Nomad training in Inner Mongolia.

Thank you on behalf of these dear brothers and sisters in Inner Mongolia. You’ve given them a skill they’ve desired for a long time. Fifteen people were trained in basic production.

These are some of their comments:

God has given me this opportunity through GNPI and through the Nomad training.

I’m going to treasure this time.

I’m going to use the gift God has given me.

I’m going to use this training for His Kingdom.

A Changed Identity

Gayle Silkwood, Office Manager of GNPI-Chiang Mai, Thailand

Amp was abandoned by her parents at a young age. She became quiet and withdrawn with only a few friends. She grew up feeling unloved and unneeded. Watch the following testimony to see how Jesus changed her life.

As an adult Amp has an important position with Upland Holistic Development Project, a foundation in Southeast Asia. Her job is to reach out to hill tribe people in northern Thailand. She markets and provides a means for them to sell their handicrafts. In her free time, she visits orphanages, plays the guitar, and brings food to a Christian care group for people with disabilities. The Lord is using this woman who had never before known love to give her love to others.

How has the love of Christ changed your life?

Two Levels of Communication

Isaac Masiga, Regional Director of GNPI-Nairobi, Kenya

The following video is a good representation of the work the Nairobi office is doing on a personal and community level.

We are excited about the growing opportunities we have to share biblical principles in various ways in homes, schools, churches, and at community events. Thank you for your valuable partnership!
