Prayers & Praises
Thank you for joining the GNPI prayer team to impact the world.
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade . . .” — 1 Peter 1:3-4 (NIV)
YouVersion Partner Portal: Praise the Lord! YouVersion recently released a new Partner Portal which makes it easier than ever for our GNPI network to create and submit plans. With the release of eight new plans in Chinese and Thai, four new plans in Cantonese, and a new plan in Burmese, GNPI now has content in nine languages. While all of our plans currently feature The Global Gospel, new plans will include other video content giving our regional centers another platform to distribute their materials to a larger audience.
Amazing Opportunity: Timothy P. of GNPI-SE Asia says, “Praise the Lord for the opportunity He’s given us to train 14 Christian leaders this month. These excited leaders will return to their regions equipped to train others in sharing the Gospel. Our staff is also finalizing a Thanksgiving program for churches in this region and making plans to distribute it on DVDs and social media. We are working on scripts for The Global Gospel in the Karen language as well.”
Building Bridges: Isaac Masiga of GNPI-Nairobi, Kenya, writes, “Please pray for God’s wisdom for us as we focus on a project to encourage college students to remain strong in their faith and complete another project to reach out to Muslims.”
Every 30 Seconds: Project Nomad-Johannesburg, South Africa, is addressing the horrific issue of human trafficking with a video to raise awareness. The video aired this month on SABC 3 during the “Afternoon Express” program. The coverage area of the station included the entire country of South Africa. You are helping GNPI teams address important social issues from a biblical perspective within their own cultures. Please pray for opportunities in South Africa, and watch the video if you would like to learn more.
Reaching our Illiterate Audience: A pastor in northern India shares, “We thank GNPI for enabling us to share Christ through the enjoyable and understandable formats of media. Since our target audience is a part of the demographic in the field that is illiterate, they tend to appreciate Christianity visually and audibly instead of through reading. Therefore, the Solar Kits provided to us by GNPI have been a success. We want to make it a priority to ensure that our ministry partners cover as many village churches as possible with these Solar Kits so more and more people may understand the Gospel.
