A Closer Look at Suffering

Andrew Goryainov from Lutsk, Ukraine, produced this video to provide an inside look at the humanitarian crisis. There are nearly two million internally displaced people in the country. The host of the video visits a shelter and views some of the housing available in eastern Ukraine. Christian people have joined together to help supply some basic needs for these families, especially the children.

Andrew is a friend and coworker with Sergei Golovin of GNPI-Eurasia. Andrew was a student at the Project Nomad training in Kiev, and this video is the fruit of the experience. He is eager to learn more about media and the possibility of starting a Nomad team.

Answering Questions About Marriage

The Marriage Series from GNPI-Mbale, Uganda, is new and easily accessible on Vimeo, YouTube, and Facebook.

Fielden and Janet Allison, who are experienced Christian workers in Uganda, say the purpose of this series is to bless marriages. It is designed to be used by couples or small groups.

The first lesson is: How does a husband show his wife that he loves her?

The other lessons are:

How does a wife show respect to her husband?

What does it mean to keep our marriage beds pure?

Is it a sin for a wife to refuse to have sex with her husband?

Is sex the original sin?

Is polygamy a sin?

Have I married the wrong person?

Should a couple have separate bank accounts?

 

The Impact of Project Nomad

Patrick Kenee, Christian Worker in South Africa

The Project Nomad-Johannesburg, South Africa, team records, edits, and prepares teaching materials from leadership training conferences. I have a friend who shares these Bible correspondence materials at every opportunity.  I’ve seen the positive impact of the course in the rural villages. Project Nomad empowers people to share the Gospel.

 

The True Buddha

Our coworkers in some regional centers share the Gospel from a very different cultural perspective. Their language may be new to partners in our global network, but it is completely relevant to the cultures where they are working.

Timothy P., Regional Director of GNPI-SE Asia

Many Buddhists worship Gautama, the founder of Buddhism. His teachings about the True Buddha points people to Jesus Christ.

I want to help people to understand the real meaning of the word “Buddha” because Buddhists think Gautama is Buddha. In reality, Buddha means “God” in the Magadha (Pali) language. Pali was the language Gautama spoke. Historically and literally, it does not refer to Gautama, who people worship today.

We should not interchange the names Gautama and Buddha because Buddha is God, and Gautama is a human being.
 Gautama himself wanted to be like Buddha (God) and prayed to Buddha (God). When Buddhists understand the difference between Buddha and Gautama, they realize who the true Buddha is.

Jesus Christ is the first and the last God. He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. He is love, the greatest, and the Almighty God. He is the Savior and the Creator. He is the Messiah (Matthias), who descended from Heaven to the earth. Jesus Christ is the Truth. The Truth makes people free (John 8:32). Knowing Him is amazing and wonderful (Revelation 22:13, Hebrew 13:8, Philippians 2:10-11, Matthew 1:18-21, John 1:1-14, John 4:25-26).

Transformation

Gustavo Velázquez of GNPI-Piedras Negras, Mexico

Raziel Nuñez, the lead actor in a couple of our recent films, shares how his family and ministry were impacted by the documentary on addictions and the short film Freed by Blood.

I see myself in the short film and relive those difficult times. However, I know that what we are living at this moment is evidence of a transformation from God in our lives.

A Favorite Highlight: Winter 2016 Prayer Report

(This “Highlights of the Year” blog was originally posted on November 25, 2016. It is a blessing to reflect on the ways God has worked through the GNPI network to share the Gospel around the world.)


Join us as we praise God for our ministry partners and for His answers to our prayers

Americas

Sharing the Gospel in Sign Language: Gustavo Velázquez of GNPI-Piedras Negras, Mexico, says, “Pablo and I travelled to the city of Matamoros, Tamaulipas, Mexico, along the border of Brownsville, Texas, to begin production on three projects with the cooperation of With My Hands ministry led by Jesus and Michelle Zuniga. God is using this couple to give hope in Christ and a better way of life to the deaf people in Matamoros. We started with recordings of 15 lessons from The Global Gospel in sign language. It is impressive to see how excited the deaf people were to participate in this project. One of them told us she was very happy because she wants to help other deaf people to know God’s love through these videos.”

Moved to Action: Gustavo Velázquez of GNPI-Piedras Negras, Mexico, writes, “We finished a new video about a ministry partner in Nicaragua who works with women who have survived human trafficking. It is an inspirational video to motivate action in service to our God, and it is the first video in our new series From Words to Deeds.

Africa

National Security: Isaac Masiga of GNPI-Nairobi, Kenya, writes, “Praise the Lord! The Ministry of Interior and Coordination of National Government and the Kenya Faith-Based Media Group, which is comprised of 42 broadcasters nationwide, had three successful live broadcasts from our studio during the month of September. We had a panel of reputable leaders in the government and clergy, as well as other faiths, speak about issues dealing with security of the nation from a faith-based perspective. An article about the broadcasts was published in one of the leading newspapers in the country.”

Fifty Decisions for Christ: Stephen Muturi of GNPI-Mbale, Uganda, writes, “Thank you for sending the two Solar Kits and spare pieces of equipment we requested. We tested them, and the new speakers are very good. These will greatly improve our efforts in the field where evangelists report at least 50 people have accepted Christ in the last two months.”

Asia

Understanding the Gospel Clearly: Timothy P. of GNPI-SE Asia shares the testimony of a man who was helped by GNPI resources. The villager said, “I am thirty-nine years old. I am a Buddhist. I regarded Christianity as a false religion until this evangelist visited our village and shared about the true and living God. After I heard the Message from this evangelist, I realized what I have heard about Christianity was totally wrong. I came to understand clearly that the only true God is Jesus Christ, and Jesus gave His own life in order to pay for our sins and rose again.”

Producing New Lessons: Nenette Pacoli of GNPI-Manila, Philippines, writes, “We are excited to release our latest Say It Forward lessons. In this new episode Dr. Joanne Gallardo continues her amazing love story. Pray these lessons will greatly impact godly relationships in our culture.”

Improving Distribution: Gayle Silkwood of GNPI-Chiang Mai, Thailand, says, “Pray we know how to distribute all of the wonderful materials our team has created. They are available on a YouTube page. We may try a Facebook page. Pray for me as I readjust to life in Thailand. Thank you for your prayers.”

Europe

A joyful retreat: Sergei Golovin of GNPI-Eurasia writes, “We took a trip and held a retreat with a couple of displaced families. We visited other displaced families on our way sharing books, clothing, love, comfort, hope, and encouragement. Please pray with us for those in Ukraine who left their homes, as well as for the end of the war and restored justice! Pray for us as we share the Message of the Lord’s ultimate justice! We believe the Lord will use every situation for His glory. We just have to keep listening to Him with faith and patience.”

India

A Passion for Evangelism: Manee Massey of GNPI-Damoh, India, writes, “Our staff has been busy recording a sermon series from a preacher who is working in the small house churches of Jabalpur villages with nearly 1,400 people. He has a passion for evangelism and requested our help. We have also been working on a cable TV program with several other preachers. Pray that God will use these messages to strengthen believers to share the Truth with others.”

Project Nomad Updates

Last Piece of the Puzzle: Praise the Lord! Project Nomad Coordinator Mark Allen reports that 24 Christian workers participated in the regional training in Togo. Kpowbie Daniel, a ministry partner from Community Health Education and organizer of the event said, “I think this training is going to bring a tremendous change in the way we have been working for the Lord. I think everyone was waiting for this. It was like the last piece of the puzzle.”

 

Home from Hong Kong: Project Nomad Coordinator Mark Allen provided a regional training in Hong Kong this fall. Please pray for the Lord to help these Christian workers to communicate clearly and to multiply their efforts to share the Gospel as they use what they learned.

Overall Ministry

International Director: Please join us in praying that God would send the right person to serve as our international director and work closely with our growing network of regional centers and Project Nomad teams.

Communicating Well: A Christian worker in South Sudan writes, “I lead a team of 10 adults working to plant churches among the unreached Laarim people of South Sudan. This is a relatively small people group of approximately 11,000. Currently, there are only a handful of Laarim believers, most of whom live elsewhere, and no churches. We use the Solar Kit with adults and children. It communicates well with our Laarim audience. Thanks for your support in spreading the Gospel in South Sudan!”

Remote Access: Bob and Pam Hudson of Mexico Medical Missions write, “We work with a mission hospital in the Sierra Madres of Mexico. Last year, we met two GNPI team members. While we were talking about our ministry in very remote villages to the Tarahumara Indians, the GNPI staff offered to give us the Solar Kit they had with them. We took it with us and gave it to a missionary friend who lives in a village off the main road two hours by car (traveling at a speed of about 8 mph) and then another two hours on foot. Obviously, there is no electricity or any other kind of convenience. This friend loves the Solar Kit and is able to tell Bible stories like never before. Thank you so much for you help.”

The GNPI App: Praise the Lord for new resources to help believers tell the Gospel story effectively! Download The GNPI App to see how the Good News is shared throughout the world. It is available from The Apple Store or Google Play Store.

The Global Gospel Update: We praise the Lord for the 26 completed language versions of The Global Gospel, which can be viewed online. There are 11 additional versions in progress. We recently divided the 88 stories into 107, so some of the longer segments could be more easily adapted for various applications on mobile devices. To date, more than 16,000 people have completed plans and tracks incorporating the videos from The Global Gospel on their favorite app.

 

A Favorite Highlight: An Amazing Help

(This “Highlights of the Year” blog was originally posted on August 17, 2016. It represents many who are grateful for the GNPI Solar Kits, which are being used in nearly 50 countries around the world.)

Joshua V. stopped by the GNPI Joplin office to let us know how thrilled he is to use our Solar Kits in his ministry.

Joshua V., Christian Worker in India

Our network of 450 churches shares five Solar Kits. Each week we set aside one day for film ministry in the villages. The Solar Kit saves us so much time and effort.

It is hard to communicate the Message to the tribal people of India unless you visualize it. Visualization greatly increases the level of understanding for the audience. It makes a huge impact when people see video clips of the crucifixion and how Christ suffered for our sins.”

Many of the people have seen idol worship, and they are searching for Truth. When the Gospel is visualized for them, they often make the decision right then to follow Christ.

The Solar Kit has been an amazing help in our ministry.

 

A Christmas Story from SE Asia

Maeram P. and her husband, Timothy P., help create Christian resources that are used in the villages throughout their region.

Maeram shares a special memory from the day she first read about the birth of Jesus in her own language from the Gospel of Luke.

Thank you for partnering with GNPI to help people understand the Good News in culturally relevant ways.
