Prayers & Praises
“I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry.” – Psalm 40:1
God Strengthened Us!
Simmi Dhingra of GNPI-Chandigarh, India, writes, “Thank you all for praying for me and for the ministry here. I am so blessed to have a family like you that is praying, supporting, and keeping faith in us. Last week as our team met and shared about the work they did in the fields, there was a lot of joy as a result of the ways God is using our tools as a powerful means of evangelism. We have sent The Global Gospel in Punjabi to the team in Damoh. Thank God for this. God strengthened us to complete our part of the project.”
The Effective Spread of Biblical Truth!
Sergei Golovin of GNPI-Ukraine shares, “Despite weather and political troubles, our trainings are still going well, and our team has returned after a presentation in Orel, Russia, on using media for the effective spread of Biblical truth in modern society. For a week, ten students ranging in age from 13-30 mastered their production skills, discussed the best ways of developing media ministries in the area, and had a lot of fun producing their final projects. All of them are looking forward to initiating media production teams in their regions for effective evangelism as well as to help local ministries like foster families and orphan care, rehabilitation centers, and helping the homeless. Please join our prayers for these brothers and sisters to be able to pass on the momentum they gained at the course!”
An Exciting Season!
Nenette Pacoli of GNPI-Philippines shares, “I think it’s the season for ‘sowing and harvesting’ (showing and bringing people to Christ) while the previous years were for plowing and preparing (doing production work). Please pray for all the places where we are supposed to go and for wisdom and creativity as we prepare for the next cycle of materials that we need to do. I feel we need to be ready for the harvests and for strengthening and equipping new believers for mission work too. I don’t know, really, what the Lord has in store for all of us, but it is exciting.”
A New Ministry Partner from France!
Jeff Frazee of the NOMaD team in Mali writes, “Benjamin is a missionary from France, and he has been preparing to work among the Dioula people like we have. Benjamin and I really understand each other, and it was comforting and encouraging to talk with him. One result of our time together is that our team will be producing media materials (mostly radio and video dramas) that Benjamin can use to reach these Muslim people.”
The Final Stage!
Jeff Silkwood of GNPI-Thailand says, “My family and I are in the final stage before we take off for Thailand this week. There are a couple of things that deserve mention. First, we sold our second car. Praise God! Second, our three-month visas have arrived, so we can get into Thailand. Thanks you so much for your prayers and support.” Jeff is the son of Regional Director Tom Silkwood. Jeff will serve as communication coordinator in Chiang Mai as well as being involved in Solar Kit assembly and distribution.
