Prayers & Praises
“From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, the name of the Lord is to be praised.” — Psalm 113:3 (NIV)
Rash of Robberies: Please pray for our coworkers around the world. Several of our partners in the regional centers, Nomad teams, and even a Joplin staff member have experienced theft in the past few weeks. Please pray for God to give them peace and to provide for their needs.
Readiness Training: Sergei Golovin of GNPI-Eurasia writes, “It was our great joy to attend a conference about Creation Evangelism and Worldview Genesis Foundations in the northeast corner of the country. By the Lord’s mercy, there is peace in the region now. However, two years of invasion threats cured apathy and caused many to ask deep questions about the meaning of life. Training God’s people to be ready to give an answer to everyone who asks the reason for their hope is urgent in all the groups where we interact.”
Reaching Out to Tribal Groups: Othaina Eid of GNPI-Mbale, Uganda, writes, “The Lord is using our ministry in a mighty way and blessing it with new souls who accept Jesus as Savior. It is easier to reach tribal people with the Gospel when we use Solar Kits. Tribal people always like to watch films, and it is very useful because electricity is limited in these areas. Please continue to pray for us as we complete the registration process with the government.”
New Churches: Timothy P. of GNPI-SE Asia writes, “We are very grateful to God for giving us a new opportunity to spread the Gospel through media and production. There is a second new church opening this month, and one of my ministry partners and I plan to attend the opening ceremony at their invitation. Thanks for your unceasing prayers. God is working in amazing ways in SE Asia.”
Using the Power of Media: Manee Massey of GNPI-Damoh, India, writes, “Thank you for praying for my trip to Shillong. I have no doubt that the 16 students we trained are the best. These Christian youth were very passionate about video productions, but they didn’t have anyone to teach them. They were all fast and creative learners, so dedicated that they didn’t even want to stop for meals or rest. They plan to make music videos, teaching videos, testimonies, short videos for social media, and documentaries about the history of the Church. Many more ideas are now developing as they see the power of media.”
