Introducing White Knight Productions

Let us introduce you to our NOMaD team in Johannesburg, South Africa. This team is very excited about the opportunities they have to bring people into a relationship with Jesus Christ.

 

The team reports,

Just this year we’ve worked on various projects helping churches, missionaries, and teachers, making educational and health related videos. We’ve dealt with topics like AIDS/HIV and materialism. We’ve assisted charities with implementing sponsor videos. We are currently making a series of personal stories called Talents and Testimonies to expose individuals to the supernatural work that God has done in their lives.

We are enthusiastic about the progress we’ve made thus far and excited about the following topics and themes we feel are culturally relevant and necessary for South African audiences. These topics are AIDS/HIV, Sangomas (The Dangers of Witchcraft), Ancestors, Abstinence, Sound Biblical Teachings, Spoken-Word Gospel Poetry, Basic Series (Basics of Christianity), Bros & Brides (Biblical Marriage Series), Talents & Testimonies, Funerals, Rape, Abortion, Violence, and many more.

Being part of this exciting team has blessed us and others in numerous ways.

 

Powerful Testimonies from SE Asia (Part One)

TP of GNPI-SE Asia shares a testimony sent by a coworker who uses the tools developed by our regional center to explain the Gospel to people of all ages. One of their newest culturally relevant tools is represented in the video clip at the end. Watch for (Part Two) tomorrow.

No.4-Maung Aung Than-23

AT, age 23, writes,

“I thank God because He loves me. My parents became Christians some time ago, but they went back to Buddhism because of weak faith and strong surrounding influences. I followed my parents. Yet I always felt outcast, unfit in the society. I was jobless. One day my parents urged me to find a job, so I went to a new area of the country. There I met many people from my own home town. I also learned that they had monthly meetings.

The evangelist DJO came from my home state to attend one of the meetings. We started the meeting with a prayer, and I listened as they discussed the problem of drugs in our community. Later that day DJO asked me to meet him the next day, so I did. He asked me how I was doing and if I had become a believer? I said no. I told him that my parents were once Christians for a short time, then they went back to Buddhism. He said my parents had not found the true living God. I was surprised to hear that. I asked if there was any God like that. All the gods I knew were just statues, and they were all the same.

He showed me a chart with a circle and explained to me that human beings worship anything. Some worship animals, spirits, trees, sun, moon, or stars, but there are some who worship the true living God, the God who created human beings. He is the one who loves us and cares us. He also gave me a book to read.

We read together. In this book it talked about Jesus as a Savior and the conqueror of death. He is the Messiah. I suddenly realized that He may be the One we have been waiting for. I continued to read the book; it says Jesus called Himself the First and the Last. At that moment I decided to only believe in Jesus, because I was sure that He was not like other gods. I was baptized earlier this year by the evangelist DJO.

I am saved now. I am happy. I want to tell my parents about Jesus. I am glad I had a chance to read the book DJO gave me. I think that it explains God to the readers and why we should worship Him. I will encourage everyone close to me to read this book.”

 

Advanced Training in Chile

By Greg Fish, Creative Media Designer


IMG_0521

I recently had the privilege of going down to Chile to introduce some ministry partners from Plainfield Christian Church in Indiana to Habacuc Diaz and the NOMaD team in Santiago. Taking full advantage of my time there, I was able to conduct advanced training for team leader, Habacuc, and video editor, Felipe.

They have a powerful program called After Effects, but they wanted to learn how to best utilize it for their purposes. I don’t blame them! It is a pretty daunting piece of software. However, after my time with them, they became more and more confident with the program. I also left some projects and a step-by-step instruction booklet, so they could refresh their memories and also work through the unfinished projects.

All in all we had a good time of training over the course of four jam-packed mornings. Here’s a little video showing moments of both fun and intense concentration!

 

An App for a Busy Christian

The Global Gospel App is now available in the Android version from GNPI. We hope it will be a blessing to many people around the world.

Since God’s Word is so important to you, make the Gospel come alive right on your mobile device with 88 beautifully illustrated and narrated stories from the life of Jesus.

Watch how you can take The Global Gospel with you when you’re living life on the go.

These simple stories, completed in multiple languages, allow users around the world to see and hear what Jesus taught in this engaging, easy-to-use smartphone app. In addition all language versions of The Global Gospel are available for download by going to our Internet site where different quality and sizes are available at no cost. Check them out today at www.vimeo.com/gnpiusa.

Watch how much we enjoyed producing this video with our summer intern, Hannah, from China.

Let the Little Children Come

Recently a group of young people came to visit GNPI. We enjoyed sharing with them about our ministry and answering their questions. The students learned that God can use each of us to help spread the Gospel around the world.

Are you thinking about your VBS missions for next summer or looking for a missions awareness tool for your children’s ministry throughout the year?

GNPI’s Liam & Ruby is available. Each Liam & Ruby episode is under five minutes. Kids of all ages will listen, laugh, and learn along with these two curious siblings. Discussion questions are included.

Liam & Ruby learn about sharing the Gospel around the world. They decide to raise money for a Solar Kit that can be used to share the Gospel. They also get a chance to visit with Manee Massey, regional director of GNPI-Damoh, India.

Liam & Ruby can be downloaded from:

unnamedVictor Knowles

By Victor Knowles, GNPI Board Member and President of Peace on Earth Ministries in Joplin, Missouri

I’ve been pleased to serve on the board of directors for GNPI since 1990, including nine years as Chairman of the Board. I don’t know of any other ministry that gives such precision and detail to doing what GNPI has been accomplishing for nearly 40 years. It is truly a unique and classic ministry that has blessed multiplied millions around the globe.

Recently I spent two weeks in Hungary and Poland. Once again I was reminded of the pressing need to reach millions more with the saving Message of Jesus Christ before He  comes again. Not long ago Mike Schrage challenged the Board with some words from a recent book by David Platt, A Compassionate Call to Counter Culture. The author wrote,  “We care much about earthly suffering, but we care more about eternal suffering.” So does GNPI. We know that mankind’s greatest need is for the Good News of Jesus.

That’s why I’m sold on GNPI’s magnificent obsession, The Global Gospel. This intriguing project may be the best thing GNPI has ever come up with. While the world obsesses over the life warping 50 Shades of Grey, GNPI has produced a life-changing series of 88 stories, The Global Gospel. Who doesn’t like a story? We have the greatest story ever told – except that for far too many it is “the greatest story never told,” but not any more!

TGG App2

In 88 short videos The Global Gospel presents the Message of Christ in the language of its audience in a culturally relevant way. GNPI is currently working to produce The Global Gospel in the world’s top 25 most widely spoken languages. When this project is complete, more than 3.6 billion people worldwide will have access to a Gospel presentation in their own language! Did you know that 80 percent of the unreached world cannot read or prefers visual learning? That’s why The Global Gospel is so powerful. It’s a visual storytelling of the life of Christ taken directly from Scripture.

In her timeless hymn “Tell Me the Old, Old Story,” Kate Hankey (1824­-1911) wrote,  “Tell me the story simply, as to a little child, / For I am weak and weary and helpless and defiled.” The Global Gospel does just that; it tells the story simply, and visually, as to a little child. Even adults are mesmerized as they see the story of Jesus unfold before their eyes, and the eye is the gateway to the heart. Jesus said, “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light” (Matthew 6:22).

YOU can be a big part of getting this “old, old story of Jesus and His love” to those who have never heard. As you pray for the spread of the Gospel, remember to send a generous gift to GNPI to hasten the day of salvation for the weak and weary one who cries, “Remember I’m the sinner / Whom Jesus came to save.”

Praises to God from Pachuca


Our NOMaD team in Pachuca, Mexico, recently recorded this beautiful and meaningful worship song:

unnamed

 

Huella Celestial

It’s all revolving
The world spins out of control
Time runs out
Moment by moment
The clock is ticking fast
Everything goes by quickly
Your smile fades away
There’s nowhere to escape
I need to slow down and seriously think
About the footprint that I wanna leave behind

There’s no time to waste
It’s necessary to believe and overcome the past
Today I have the opportunity
Yesterday’s gone and tomorrow’s not certain
Today is when I can think about making the present a better future
Today I must concede the things that have harmed me and started up again
In this instance I can think about making my mark on this world
With my heavenly footprint

The footprint is His and you can come to know Him

 

Congratulations on completing this new project!

 

Prayers & Praises

“I know that my redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand on the earth.” — Job 19:25 (NIV)

A Connection in the Parliament! Sergei Golovin of GNPI-Ukraine shares, “We have presented our newest book, The Bible and Politics, at one of the top (and oldest) universities in eastern Europe at a conference in Ostroh. The Lord has opened another door with the book as well. A brother in Christ, with a connection in parliament, has arranged to give it to several parliament members! What a great opportunity to impact the transforming society by making politicians aware of God’s guidance for all nations! Please pray with us for open minds and hearts to the Truth of the Scripture’s influence on them and through them!”

The Global Gospel on Flashdrives! Tom Silkwood of GNPI-Thailand writes, “Last month our team was in Bangkok to participate as members of the media team at The 8th Congress (Thailand’s 8th Christian convention). Over 4,000 people attended. Our team of four Thai staff was in charge of shooting daily video footage and editing it to be ready for the next main session. It was a big job for our small team who often worked well into the wee hours. We brought boxes of our materials for distribution at our booth and came away with a long list of churches, pastors, and individual Christians who wanted more of our materials. There were hundreds who came to the booth as we each shared the vision of our ministry and explained what materials were available. People were excited to know that all our productions are being uploaded to YouTube for free download. Our newest production, The Global Gospel, was featured at our booth on a small TV. A USB flash drive holds 88 Bible stories with each story being word-for-word Scripture in the Thai language.”

God leads us! TP of GNPI-SE Asia writes, “God leads us continually to glorify His name through Jesus Christ. I met a man who speaks Mandarin Chinese. He desires to translate some important products of ours into Chinese. Please pray for us in this new avenue of ministry.”

Something Compelling! Donna, a friend from Illinois writes, “There is something compelling about The Global Gospel. I started watching on my cell phone and did not want to put it down. Good job, GNPI.” Please pray that The Global Gospel App will be a compelling way for people in closed areas of the world to come to know Christ.

And the Winner Is . . . Congratulations to Nenette Pacoli of GNPI-Philippines and her team for winning a bronze Crown Award for Best International Film and a silver Crown Award for Best Curriculum for the My Worship: Real or Replacement series. We praise the Lord for this encouragement for these coworkers.
