Prayers & Praises
The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. (Psalm 145:18)
We cherish your prayers! Simmi of GNPI-Chandigarh, India, shares, “A Hindu separatist group movement called Ghar wapsi, which means return home or re-conversion, has started torturing Christians in Punjab and elsewhere in India. Their aim is to convert all Christians back to Hinduism, according to their belief that all Indians are Hindus and must return to Hinduism. We cherish your prayers and concern for us as we go out daily to spread the name of Jesus and work to grow his kingdom.”
The Long Wait Blessing! Tom Silkwood of GNPI-Thailand gives praise to God about The Long Wait Blessing program, which they recently completed. Tom says, “Basically, the program concerns happiness and the desire of people to be instantly gratified. It teaches that God’s blessing isn’t always immediate, but many blessings come in God’s timing. Christians must remain patient and steadfast, and they will experience God-given peace and joy.”
Nurturing Mothers! Jesca Naavah of GNPI-Uganda shares, “We are working on a partnership with the main hospital in Mbale. They want GNPI to do short videos on how mothers should care for their newborn babies. This project will start next month, and the videos should be three to five minutes long. Our staff members think this is a good chance to educate many young women who lack such knowledge. In addition, we hope to use these videos on Solar Kits in the villages, not only in churches, but also in the community. Please pray for this new opportunity.”
An Approach from Australia! TP of GNPI-SE Asia writes, “Thank you very much for your unceasing prayers. Last night, one of my friends from Australia called me and said he heard about what I am teaching here [as a guest lecturer in Malaysia], and he was interested in this method. He said he would like to invite me to share my approach for letting people see the True God among Therawada Buddhists. It is amazing how God is touching people by unseen ways!”
The Opportunity to Share! Carol from Indiana writes, “I thank our Lord that he has blessed me and given me the opportunity to share with you in spreading the Message of Christ. May God guide you with his wisdom.” We appreciate each of the churches and individuals who partner with us to accelerate global evangelism.
