God’s Blessing Under Trying Circumstances!
Jeff Kenee reports on the work of the NOMaD team in South Africa. Jeff writes, “God continues to bless us under trying circumstances. Our leadership development continues successfully on Wednesdays and Saturdays. It was exciting recently to bless each of them with a DVD presentation of our teaching on inductive Bible study and growing in spiritual maturity. A big thank you to the NOMaD team for filming, editing, and producing this first resource DVD. We are excited about our outreach also. Three of our leadership students have been accepted into a federal prison as teachers/chaplains. Due to the class growth, the warden is making an allowance to make a larger hall available to the teachers. We are planning to utilize the New Life Behavior team to present training to all of our leadership students and produce it as a future training DVD.”
A Changed Person!
Tom Silkwood of GNPI-Thailand says, “One of our most recent Changed programs features Panida Thongdi. She shares her testimony of how she changed from being angry towards her father to a person who works in church ministry and now cares for her aging parents. She first became angry with her father because he considered selling her to buy a house. She left her village and stayed with friends in Bangkok. Then she studied God’s Word, and let God transform her life to one of surrender, forgiveness, and freedom in Christ.”
Planting Seeds of Hope in Young Hearts!
Nenette Pacoli of GNPI-Philippines writes, “The film showing at Boys’ Town went well last month, though it was heart-breaking. Over 100 boys live there, either abandoned or surrendered by their parents. We planted seeds of hope in their hearts. Hopefully we also sparked dreams in their heads when they saw the ending where the boys in the All Things New story went to college. Please help us pray for ways to connect local churches to be involved in these young boys’ lives.”
Strategic Planning for Kenya!
Isaac Masiga of GNPI-Kenya says, “Thanks for the continuous prayers for us. Keep us in prayer as we work on our strategic plan this month. Pray that God would give us wisdom and foresight to what we need to do between now and the next few years.”
Prayer Requests from SE Asia!
TP of GNPI-SE Asia shares, “Pray that we can get a set of outdoor musical instruments for video productions and for youth campaigns. The people of this region are very fond of music, and Christian music attracts young people to Christ. Pray for evangelists and for the people in SE Asia and our military government.”
