“But as for me, I watch in hope for the LORD, I wait for God my Savior; my God will hear me.” — Micah 7:7 (NIV)
Persecuted for His Name: Simmi Dhingra of GNPI-Chandigarh, India, writes, “Here in northern India, preaching the Gospel is difficult with a new political party in power. We have to be on our guard every time we go out to preach or conduct mass meetings. Some people try to disturb us by throwing stones on our gathering or cutting off the power. Our evangelists have been beaten for showing Bible clips on Solar Kits. The local administration has punished these criminals, but ensuring justice is an ongoing and difficult process. We are thankful to God for taking care of us as we face persecution for His Name.”
Thanks a Thousand Times: Allen Sappington, a Christian worker in Panama, writes, “Thanks a thousand times for helping us with the Solar Kit for our work on the San Blas Islands. We started using 16mm on reel to reel projectors in 1985. We carried them to jungle villages and islands on horseback or on our backs as well as in dugout canoes, small planes, and four wheel drive trucks. The Solar Kit is a miracle for our Floating Bible Schools ministry. As we share the Gospel, nearly 150 people have made decisions for Christ.”
Family Conferences: Abi Flores of GNPI-Mexico writes, “We traveled with Pecos and Lynda Inchaustegui to Monterrey, Mexico, to record a pilot for some family conferences. We hope this will become a 10-part video series about marriage. Pecos and Lynda have a broad range of knowledge. They are dynamic speakers who could be a great help to many families. We appreciate your prayers as we make plans for these conferences this year.”
It Is Amazing: Sergei Golovin of GNPI-Ukraine writes, “Our former students displaced by political turmoil are scattered in various regions. They are starting ministries and developing disciples in new places. It is amazing how the Lord uses the troubles of the world for His greater glory. Please pray with us for the new opportunities He is providing.”
Basic Training Online: Project Nomad Coordinator Mark Allen is recording videos in Joplin this week to supplement the other basic training materials. He plans to have online materials completed by April. Please pray these materials will be useful and cost effective for many Christian workers who are using media to share the Gospel around the world.
