Prayers & Praises
“But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.” — Luke 5:16 (NIV)
Good Responses: Manee Massey of GNPI-Damoh, India, says, “Praise the Lord! Our 2017 Easter program showed three times on national television resulting in 500 calls from 20 states. Our staff appreciates the good responses and opportunities to pray with people, mostly non- Christians, in our follow-up.”
Training Others: Timothy P. of GNPI-SE Asia forwarded this testimony from a coworker, “I have always desired to spread the Good News of Christ. Your method of sharing the Gospel helped me and others to understand more about Jesus and how much Jesus wants to reach out to the people. I never connected the teachings of Gautama and Jesus. Jesus overcame death. That is a very special lesson for me to reach the unreached people in this culture. Now I use this method when I speak to non-Christians. No human being is free from sin. Therefore, everyone needs a helper to get away from sinful life. I have shared this Good News with more than 20 people. They accepted it, so I want to spread the Gospel even more.”
New Nomad Training: Please pray for Project Nomad Coordinator Mark Allen as he leads the Nomad training event at Dallas Christian College in Texas, this week and then leaves for two training events in the Philippines.
Ripple Effect: Sergei Golovin of GNPI-Eurasia writes, “Interactions with our former students is a great blessing. For the last couple of years we’ve given them reading and writing assignments as well as practical ones to share their faith with others. Then they have to share what have they learned and write a report evaluating their plans and expectations while comparing them with the outcome. What a joy to receive messages like this: ‘Thank you so much! Without your assignment I would not have dared to start doing this!’ Please pray with us for a ripple effect in the Kingdom!”
Empowering Others: Isaac Masiga of GNPI-Nairobi, Kenya, writes, “Our team is working with the Humanitarian Leadership Academy to create culturally relevant learning materials that other organizations can use to impact the communities where they serve. We are thankful for the opportunity to meet these needs and to translate resources into other indigenous languages to educate and empower.”
