Prayers & Praises
Thank you for joining the GNPI prayer team to impact the world.
“Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.” — Psalm 27:14 (NIV)
Blue Whale Challenge: Project Nomad-Chennai, India, is using media strategy to combat the Blue Whale Challenge. This Internet teen suicide threat is impacting families not only on the continent of Asia but also in South America, Europe, and North America. The advantage of Project Nomad is that the teams are small and flexible enough to tackle new issues affecting their unique cultures. Pray for God’s powerful love to be revealed to teens and their families.
Initiating a Movement: Timothy P. of GNPI-SE Asia says, “This month we are recording a Christmas message in Burmese and preparing evangelistic productions for evangelists and preachers throughout the region. We have completed our third month-long training for 14 Christian leaders. Please continue your earnest prayers as we work to initiate a movement for Christ in this Buddhist region.”
Media Multiplies and Empowers: Sergei Golovin of GNPI-Eurasia writes, “A highlight of the fall was the international conference on Scientific Evidences for Intelligent Design in Life and the Universe. Leading Christian intellectuals discussed various approaches to using the latest developments of science, medicine, education, and legislation to shift the post-communist world mentality toward a solid Bible-based worldview. All the sessions and seminars were recorded on video and streamed over the Internet. The resources are now available online and can be accessed by the people in remote and restricted areas. It is amazing how media multiplies and empowers our limited efforts!”
Sharing Say It Forward: Nenette Pacoli of GNPI-Manila, Philippines, says, “Praise the Lord! We will be re-editing most of the earlier Say It Forward talks and posting them on Facebook. They were uploaded only on YouTube before. We have found Facebook to be the most effective vehicle for our videos, and we can track views and shares and even look at some of the profiles of our viewers. Some of the programs are being used in schools, Bible studies, and small groups.”
The New Angle Media Project is currently being tested among the 95 million Muslims in Indonesia. It includes interactive children’s stories from the Old Testament and New Testament. When completed this project can be replicated within some of the hardest-to-reach nations on the earth. Please pray for funding for the next phrase of this promising production.
