Prayers & Praises
“I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.”—Ephesians 1:17
On Target! Jeff Silkwood writes, “I have begun work on the Solar Kit. Things seem to be working out rather well. There have been a couple of set backs, but nothing that cannot be easily fixed. The good thing is, as I find one part that will not work, there are many other options to choose from. It is my goal to get the first prototype completed by January 2015. Seeing that most of the components have been found, it looks like I am on target for my deadline.”
Thanksgiving Testimonies! Pong Dang of GNPI-SE Asia shares, “We have finished our Thanksgiving Testimony DVD video project. In this video, eight people testified about how God has been showing his grace and mercy and taking care of them throughout their lives. In addition, the wall chart of The Church Founded by Christ is now printed and being distributed in the churches.”
A Real Joy! Sergei Golovin of GNPI-Ukraine writes, “We had quite a marathon when teaching the Systematical Apologetics course, as well as running related workshops, seminars, etc. at two different seminaries outside of Kiev, one right after another. Despite the same content and the same modular approach, teaching dynamics were pretty different due to the specific schools. The first school provides traditional academic full-time teaching for students (mostly college age) who consider ministry as their future occupation. Our primary goal there was to guide and encourage them in that decision, to help with finding their specific calling, and demonstrate how they will be able to use the knowledge and skills they are getting. The second school provides short-term training for church leaders who are in ministry already. Most of them know what their exact calling is, what they lack in their ministry, and what they actually expect to get from the course. In that setting, experience sharing and encouragement was mutual all the time. It was a real joy at both settings!”
Spared From a Deluge! Nenette Pacoli of GNPI-Philippines shares, “As you may have known, a super-typhoon was headed our way last month. Please join me in thanking the Lord that he held up the rain for us to be able to shoot Pastor Carlo’s segment outdoors. Secondly, although the super-typhoon weakened a bit, it did hit some provinces hard, but we had very few casualties. I just know the Lord loves the Philippines a lot, and I know that almost the entire country has been praying that we be spared from what would have been a deluge. God has honored those prayers. Thank you for lifting us up too.”
Spreading the Word! Bev from FL writes, “Your prayer list shows how the Word is being spread. God is using the efforts of many people.” Praise the Lord!
