Prayers & Praises
“But the Lord stood with me and gave me strength so that I might preach the Good News in its entirety for all the Gentiles to hear . . .” — 2 Timothy 4:17(NLT)
God Is in Charge: Simmi Dhingra of GNPI-Chandigarh, India, writes, “Thank you for your prayers for northern India. The rioting is now under control. We are busy preparing for ladies seminars in different areas of our region as well as for our Easter meetings. In some areas, the authorities required us to seek permission to hold the group meetings. We have not received approval from them. We know that whatever God does is best for us, and He is in charge.”
New Christians: Timothy P. of GNPI-SE Asia writes, “After a seminar about the true and living God, 12 people decided to be baptized! One of the men I trained is already sharing the Gospel with others. Praise the Lord for what He is doing through this man.”
We Were Shocked: Sergei Golovin of GNPI-Eurasia writes, “We met with a law professor who shared how useful our Biblical Foundations for Civil Society resources (including a book, videos, and presentations) are and how she incorporates them into her lectures. We were shocked! When she first introduced herself, we were expecting a professional critique. However, we were wrong. The wisdom of God’s Word still shines light in the minds of experts just like it did when Jesus explained the Law of Moses to the scribes and teachers in His day. May His name be praised!
An Opportunity to Influence: Isaac Masiga of GNPI-Kenya says, “We have had requests for more public service announcements (PSAs). The PSAs often deal with difficult subjects, but they provide an opportunity to influence people with biblical values. Pray for us as we work on our newest PSAs about the topics of abortion and being too busy for God.”
The Ideal Solution: Tom Silkwood of GNPI-Thailand writes, “Praise the Lord! We are making progress on the Solar Kit workshop building. I have construction quotes from a local company and the counsel of a missionary who oversees many construction projects. The building will be quite large with a front porch that adds another two meters to the front. The building modules will be delivered on a truck with a crane, and the final assembly will be on our grounds. It seems we have found the ideal solution.”
