I recently received this report from our coworker, Robert, at the Chandigarh studio. Robert says,“GNPI not only produces programs but also lends its support in ministerial work. Last Saturday, GNPI staff members packed our bags and went to the leper colony to preach through our Solar Kits.
“Life seemed to spring back into people as we entered the colony. The children were eager to find out why GNPI was there. It was a long time since they last watched any videos. The children found no ends to their excitement and wanted everything to happen instantly. We carried in some children’s Bible stories and even showed The Passion of the Christ movie to the adults.
“As the children watched the videos, some of the adults wondered about our activities. Many asked us about our stories, and we were able to share with them about our faith. Moreover, many people teared up at the movie and the powerful message it conveyed to the hearts of these people.
“We started with a short prayer asking God to restore their faith. The Passion of the Christ film was like a healing touch to them as they saw how Jesus was beaten, punished, and tortured for our iniquities. We reminded them of God’s love for us. Throughout the whole day, we recounted many occasions from the Bible where Jesus performed miracles by healing the sick, the lepers, and raising the dead. There were many who wanted to accept Jesus as their Master and Savior, and everyone was joyful at the promise of Jesus’ return.”
We praise God for this opportunity to use the Solar Kit to display a message of healing and hope in this leper colony in northern India.
