Prayers & Praises
“ The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.” 2 Peter 3:9 (NIV)
“The news will excite you!”
Nenette Pacoli of GNPI-Philippines shares, “The clean up from the typhoon is going well. Churches are very much involved in rebuilding! Different churches have adopted different ways to help. Some churches have helped build public toilets. Some are helping build new homes. Some are counseling children. Others continue to provide food, water, and funds to sustain efforts. In all these efforts, they are quietly sharing the Gospel. The church my family attends has an outreach in Culion, Palawan, and this is where the news will excite you. One pastor has requested that GNPI give a Solar Kit to a pastor there, and he will be in charge of lending it out to the other churches in the area. This pastor says there are places that still do not have electricity, so the Solar Kit will be extremely helpful. We will be arranging a trip/meeting with the pastors’ organization there in January.” Praise God for working through his Church.
Martha Emmerson of North India Christian Mission writes, “All throughout the services, it was moving to see tears of sorrow and hope in the eyes of not only the local villagers and rural folks but in the eyes of so many police officers, military officials, businessmen, and other high-ranking members of society to come and commemorate the life of Christ through Deepak. Deepak has left a wonderful legacy, and with God’s help, the work he started to reach the lost will continue.” Please pray for wisdom for Deepak’s family and coworkers as they take their next steps.
“God has really enabled us.”
Jesca of GNPI-Uganda writes, “We have finished recording The Global Gospel in the Luganda language. Thank you all for the support and prayer. God has really enabled us throughout the process.”
“An honor for me!”
Gustavo Velázquez of GNPI-Mexico shares, “We are working hard on editing Raziel’s Story. In addition, the script of the third short film, which is about suicide, is ready. We hope to record it early next year. Believe me, it is an honor for me to be part of the GNPI team and work together with you in this great family of God.”
Isaac Masiga of GNPI-Kenya says, “We helped by providing technical and administrative support in each stage of a major movie, The Distant Boat. The recent movie premiere went well, better than we expected. We actually had three premieres and the turnout was impressive. The first one was for cast and crew, the second one was for pastors and church leaders who will use the movie as a tool, and the third one was for everyone. It was premiered at a popular local cinema here in Nairobi. Just last week, we took the show on the road to Malindi (located on the coast of Kenya), and the show was well received by the locals there. This was our first test screening to a Muslim audience. The film is being distributed on DVD and online. There is a downloadable version online at www.distantboat.com/get-the-film-2. It’s already showing in the movie theatres.” We praise God and give him the glory.
