Nenette Pacoli, Regional Director of GNPI-Manila, Philippines
Our office is currently working on the series WWJD and Say It Forward.
WWJD is now in the third season of looking at the biblical view of current issues in our culture. The series is popular with young adults. We are brainstorming about how to do the next episode of WWJD on respecting authority. It seems especially important now that we have a new president.
This episode is about Voter Education.
I received a note recently from a 14 year old girl who watched one of the WWJD programs about dating, “I really liked the video; it made me understand more about courtship and the opinions of other people on courtship. Thanks for making that documentary!”
That gladdens the heart, doesn’t it?
Say It Forward is a series of short programs hosted by different Christian professionals who relate their experiences and perspectives from the tough situations they’ve encountered. It is patterned after Ted-Talks. We are working on another taping of Say It Forward this month. We hope to become the source of good talks and topics, the “go-to” website for inspirational and educational videos.
The speakers themselves are using these for their own Bible studies or small groups. I am excited that we are consistently increasing likes to our pages, and shares of the videos. From less than 20 shares early in our series, we’ve increased to 40+. One episode has gone up to 64 shares and counting. That may seem puny if we consider a million shares or views on YouTube, but great things come from small beginnings. We will just continue doing our very best and let God do the rest. Say It Forward’s time will come.
This episode shows how the Lord is working in the life of this dentist and how He is shaping her faith!
Finally, our Board members are working hard to prepare for our first Project Nomad training. We see so many opportunities to use media to share the Gospel and to inject godly principles into the lives of Filipino people who are seeking answers to the social issues they encounter every day.
