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.

Praying for Ishmael’s Tribe

Have you visited the Prayercast Website? If not, you should take some time and look around. The videos there are free to download and they would be a fantastic resource for your Sunday school class, mission team, or entire church.

This video is not linked to a specific country, but the “people group” who are the descendants of Ishmael. The prayercast Website page that is home for this video starts out with the following:

“Despite birthing many of the earliest Christian churches, the Middle East and North Africa have endured centuries with little or no access to the Gospel. Today, four of every five Muslims – 20% of the world’s population – have never heard the Good News of Jesus Christ.  It is estimated that only 10% of missionaries are working among Muslims, with some estimates as low as 1%. This translates to roughly one missionary for every 1 million Muslims.  And yet despite all this, recent decades have seen an unprecedented Christian witness among the Arab world.  More Muslims have become followers of Jesus Christ in the last 25 years than in the previous 1250 years!”

Watch this prayer video, and then click here if you would like to read the rest of the information about the tribe of Ishmael.

We here at GNPI consider you family – that is why I’ve invited you into my living room to share with you the growing vision of GNPI. This is God’s ministry, and he is taking us to exciting, and sometimes scary places. We have strapped ourselves in and we are hanging on. You know the saying, “It takes a village?” Well, that is really talking about raising a child – but you could use that same phrase to describe what it takes to move this ministry forward. We are truly thankful for the partnership you’ve entrusted us with.

Here’s the last installment of the GNPI Living Room Sessions. Thanks for hanging out with me and listening.

Mike

In the world today, how do we reach out to people of Islam, Hinduism, or Buddhism? GNPI has regional centers and NOMaD teams located in strategic regions of the world. But when we look at the numbers of people who follow these religions, we need to do more!

1.6 Billion Muslims
1 Billion Hindus
½ Billion Buddhists

GNPI will have an App for that!

Dear Friends,

As you may have heard, we recently hosted three Vision Night events in Joplin, Indianapolis, and Phoenix. The turnout and response was simply amazing. I wanted to make sure everyone had a chance to hear what we were so excited to share with these great crowds. Stay tuned weekly, as over the next month, you’ll have the chance to come into my home and hear the Vision we feel God has placed in our sights for reaching more people than ever with the message of Christ. We’re so thankful you continue to help us accelerate global evangelism through media and technology.

Until He Comes,

Mike

A Quick Look at “Vision Night” in Joplin

Vision Night BannerLast night we held our first Vision Night in Joplin, Missouri. It was a great night of sharing the vision for the future of GNPI, and for hearing about the work that is going on in India.

Manee Massey, our regional director from Damoh, India, spoke about The Global Gospel and Solar Kits, and many other projects they are working on.

He also shared many stories of how the work they are doing is impacting India. Here’s a short video that will show you some of what went on.

Pray for Ukraine

Praying for an entire country or an entire people group can seem daunting. Maybe you would like to pray for the country of Ukraine, but you aren’t really sure how to voice a prayer for such a seemingly hopeless situation.

If you have 2 minutes and 34 seconds, this video will lead you to the Father’s throne on behalf of that country.

God is never too busy.

He is always listening.

And nothing is too big for him – not even your prayer for an entire country.

By the way, the Prayercast Website has tons of prayer videos for countries. It’s really a great resource.

What is Vision Night?

Have you ever moved into a new house? There are great memories to take with you from the place you used to live, and they help make the new memories you’ll create that much sweeter!

MapFor more than 30 years, GNPI’s annual banquet was held on the campus of Ozark Christian College. It’s always been a great time of fellowship and seeing the hand of God at work in the ministry. We are so grateful for that long-standing partnership.

This year we’re moving the event into a new house. We bring with us to the Butcher’s Block in Joplin hearts full of memories of what God has done at GNPI during the last four decades. We’re also teeming with excitement for what he’s going to do in the days, months, and years ahead. We’re so excited about it that we’re taking things on the road with two additional venues in Indianapolis and Phoenix.

We pray you’ll join us this year at Vision Night—a new name for this long-standing yearly highlight for friends of GNPI. You can RSVP online or call 417-782-0060. http://gnpi.org/visionnight/

ManeeWe’re hosting Manee Massey, regional director of our Damoh, India, center. He’s going to share what the Lord is doing to accelerate global evangelism through media and technology in that part of the world. And, we’re going to ask for investments in our new strategic plan – we need your help to make these God-given dreams a reality!

Oh, and just to remind you, multiply the regional center in Damoh times nine, add the transformations taking place through project NOMaD, and throw in the impact of more than 400 Solar Kits in 50 countries and you have a clearer picture of what we’re celebrating at Vision Night.

That’s what you’ve helped build through the years. That’s what you’re helping take to an even greater level of effectiveness through your financial partnership.

Until then, watch this video and get a taste for part of what you’ll experience March 13th in Joplin, March 18th in Indianapolis, and March 28th in Phoenix. Join us and catch the vision!
