Compelled by Love

Mike Schrage, Executive Director

GNPI partnered with ICOM in 2016 to create and launch these testimonies from Christians working throughout the world to share the Gospel. We hope these brief messages will inspire and encourage many congregations as they give, serve, and take the Gospel each day.

May we follow their courageous examples as they follow Christ in proclaiming the Truth.

 

Changed: Healed to Help Others

Gayle Silkwood of GNPI-Chiang Mai, Thailand

We love sharing the stories of how God changes lives. When people see these amazing testimonies, they are often encouraged in their personal walk or drawn to find out how they can have the same peace and joy.

Our production team traveled to northern Thailand to interview Pastor Mao. He shared his inspiring testimony as one who prayed and dedicated his life to Christ. The Lord spared him from the debilitating results of a brain tumor and gave him a growing ministry in his village.

Raised in a Christian home in Bangkok, Thailand, Mao remembers worship services and prayer times at church, but admits he was a nominal Christian back then. Church was something his family did, but he had little interest. His parents sent him to Chiang Rai in northern Thailand when he was nine years old where he lived in a Christian dormitory and did his studies. Still he had no inner spiritual understanding of the Savior Jesus. He got involved in a lifestyle of drugs and gangs.

By God’s grace and despite poor choices, God never abandoned him. He was given many opportunities to commit his life to God. It eventually occurred to him that God’s love for him was real. He made the decision to attend Bible college, got his Masters in Biblical studies, and became a pastor.

After years of working in the church, he began to have severe migraines. He was on several different medications, then one doctor did a more thorough check-up and discovered an egg-sized tumor in his brain near the base of his skull. There were few options in this case. If they did nothing, Pastor Mao would surely die, or there was a risky surgery that would most likely cause major disabilities if he even survived.

In his despair and pain, Pastor Mao cried out to the Lord for help. Gradually, his anxiety, stress, and fear were replaced with peace, hope, and strength. He became resolved to accept death if it was God’s will for him. At the same time, he prayed that if he must remain on earth he would be healed with no handicaps, so he could continue to serve. He realized he was asking for a miracle, but knew his God was capable of the impossible. Surgery was performed and to the surprise of the surgeon, the hole left by the large tumor instantly closed up. Pastor Mao had a complete recovery and continues to encourage others to put their trust in the only living God who saves.

Update from Chennai

Timothy Jai Kumar, Team Leader of Project Nomad-Chennai,India

Our team is doing great and working on several different projects. We would like to share a video that we created for graduation at Lakeview Bible College & Seminary to let people know a little more about our media team.

These are some of our highlights from the last year:

  • The Global Gospel in Tamil and Telugu were released.
  • We trained a team in West Bengal. They have completed nine projects in the Nepali language so far.
  • We trained a team of 17 people in Darjeeling.
  • Our Chennai team is completing new projects every month. We have 22 projects in English, two in Tamil, two in Hindi, and one in Malayalam.
  • We are planning to form two new teams, one in Andhra Pradesh (Kakinada) and one in Kerala (Cochin).

We receive young students with great talent each year who contribute to our work.

Striving to Contribute

Isaac Masiga, Regional Director of GNPI-Nairobi, Kenya

This is the latest promotional video about the work of our team.

We endeavor to address the needs of our communities by sharing God’s Word through media.

Our team is one part of a worldwide network with eight regional centers. Our goal is to produce content for different cultures in different languages to prompt positive change in the rural and urban areas around us. We partner with other like-minded organizations to produce cutting edge media materials. We use every possible distribution channel to convey our messages. Our office also uses Yunami, our smartphone app, and Solar Kits designed specifically for Africa.

We strive to contribute to the building of communities, so Africans have access to information that transforms their lives.

ICOM Highlights

Mike Schrage, Executive Director

Our team at GNPI enjoyed serving at the International Conference On Missions (ICOM) last fall.
We have many good memories as we watch these highlights. Our African friend and ministry partner, Dennis Okoth, is featured in the following video.

Our team at GNPI considers ICOM a great opportunity to connect with the Church in reaching out with the Gospel.

Captain

Habacuc Diaz, Team Leader of Project Nomad-Santiago, Chile

We would like to present a new music video. We plan for this to be the first of six songs on a new worship DVD.

We are learning so much, as we reach Chilean youth who love music, art, and videos!

Through waters uncharted my soul will embark
I’ll follow Your voice straight into the dark
And if from the course You intend
I depart
Speak to the sails of my wandering heart

Like the wind
You’ll guide
Clear the skies before me
And I’ll glide this open sea

Like the stars
Your Word
Will align my voyage
And remind me where I’ve been
And where I am going

Lost in the shallows amidst fear and fog
Your truth is the compass that points me back north
Jesus
My Captain
My soul’s trusted Lord
All my allegiance is rightfully Yours

Like the wind
You’ll guide
Clear the skies before me
And I’ll glide this open sea

Like the stars
Your Word
Will align my voyage
And remind me where I’ve been
And where I am going

Like the wind
You’ll guide
Clear the skies before me
And I’ll glide this open sea

Like the stars
Your Word
Will align my voyage
And remind me where I’ve been
And where I am going

Jesus
My Captain
My soul’s trusted Lord
All my allegiance is rightfully Yours

 

A Great Start

Nenette Pacoli, Regional Director of GNPI-Manila, Philippines

Faith Matters, too!, our new series, is off to a great start. We tried to be creative with our launch by holding a “like and share” contest on Facebook last month.

Our goal was 1,000 likes in five days, but we got 10,000 likes in three! I am overwhelmed by the response. Now we average almost 6,000 views daily, and we pray God will touch all these people through the videos.

Recently, I read Isaiah 43:19, “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up, do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”

We have scattered and continue to scatter videos in the wilderness of the internet, but the results are really in God’s hands.

May this video be an encouragement to you today!

 

Hands of Hope

Gayle Silkwood of GNPI-Chiang Mai, Thailand

Our team would like to introduce you to SoPhaPhone, a young woman whose ministry for the hearing impaired in Laos is called Hands of Hope. SoPhaPhone says, “I had a burden for those who couldn’t hear the Gospel and wanted them to know God. Now we have Bible study classes in sign language, fellowship meals, and worship together at a local church.”

SoPhaPhone also helps these deaf friends find ways to live useful and fruitful lives as self-sufficient and financially independent adults. Several young women have started a bakery and design jewelry to sell.

The Hands of Hope ministry began several months ago and has grown to 13 people. Enjoy meeting these new friends in Movement Everywhere #8.

Their jewelry is sold on the Hands of Hope or Handmadelao Facebook pages.
