Prayers & Praises
“But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations.” — Psalm 33:11
A Line of People Waiting to Get Baptized!
Simmi Dhingra of GNPI-Chandigarh, India, writes, “Mr. I, a convert from Islam, shared his experience of how the Solar Kit enhanced the understanding and learning ability of his audience in the slum areas of K and B, where most of the people are uneducated. His members were from a Hindu background. His regular members who attended church every Sunday were 70 in total. As a result of the Gospel message shared through the Solar Kits, there is now a line of people waiting to get baptized.”
A New Release!
Gustavo Velázquez of GNPI-Mexico says, “Next week the short film Raziel’s Story will be shown and distributed.” The film is a testimony of the way God can redeem and transform the life of a down-and-out addict. Raziel’s powerful testimony demonstrates the dangers, attitudes, circumstances, and consequences of such a life. Please pray that God will draw young people to this event, so they can see the lasting hope that Christ offers.
An Answered Prayer!
Director of Operations Tom Nutt had a chance to demonstrate the Solar Kit to a group of people in SE Asia. One man who works in the northern villages became very excited about this tool. He said, “Today, you’ve answered my prayer. My dream is to share Christ with my village. For all these years, I have been looking for a way to get into the northern villages where I grew up. I believe this is the tool that will make that possible.” Please pray that God will make himself known and work in the lives of the people in these northern villages.
Never in My Wildest Dreams!
Nenette Pacoli of GNPI-Philippines shares, “I never in my wildest dreams thought that we would be showing WWJD programs to ‘captive audiences’ in schools, colleges, and youth groups. On TV, we just rely on ratings and hope that people get the message, but now the Lord has given us front row seats on how he changes lives through our materials! At the university, I saw understanding in the students’ faces as they watched Purity. It was almost like they had been liberated! We thank God for opening these new doors for us. We hope to continue to go to colleges, schools, and churches to offer our materials for their use.”
“A realistic way of getting the Word of God into their hands.”
Eddie, a Christian worker in South Sudan writes, “Even in the poorest places, you can normally find that many people have or share cell phones. People go to shops to load music onto their SD cards in their phones and pass it along using Bluetooth. Recently our team has loaded audio Bibles, Walking with Jesus films, GNPI films, and The Jesus Film in different languages onto SD cards in about 6 of the local languages, and there has been a great response! Money exchangers, police officers, border officials, teenagers, shopkeepers, taxi drivers, neighbors, and more have all been excited to receive the Word! Many have come back for more once they have listened to it and shared it! With an overall literacy rate of 27 percent, this audio form is a realistic way of getting the Word of God into their hands.”
