Summer 2015 Prayer Report
Thank you for your faithful prayers for the ministry of GNPI. As we enter the summer season, we want to pause and reflect on the many ways God has been working in each of the regional centers around the world.
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. — 1 John 5:14
Swahili Summary – Isaac Masiga of GNPI-Kenya writes, “We give thanks to God for the projects we are undertaking this year. We finished A Distant Boat in the Swahili version, and the feedback so far is great. We finished recording The Global Gospel in the Swahili version sometime back, and we are in the final stages of editing. In addition, we request special prayers for the Christian talk show project that we want to do this year. Pray for a good working relationship between Liberty Visions and GNPI for this production. Thanks for your continual prayer and support.”
God Enabled Us! Jesca Naavah of GNPI-Uganda writes, “Praise God! The Marriage for Life project went well. It was an interesting series. We prayed for good health and to be able to do all 11 episodes in the short time we had with Fielden and Janet Allison, and God enabled us. Keep praying for the editing process!”
Signal Strength – Abi Flores of GNPI-Mexico writes, “Please pray for the radio programming at www.buenasnuevasradio.com, so more people can hear our transmission and the signal would improve. In addition pray for the next short film project on anorexia. We are looking for people who will be involved during this filming, as well as in other projects.”
The Message For All Time – Nenette Pacoli of GNPI-Philippines writes, “Thanks so much for all your prayers; we were able to upload the WWJD Holy Week episode, and its Message is for all time, in perfect time! We are now continuing the post-production of the Career or Calling episode. It was the one affected when our computer crashed in March. We hope to post it in May, in time for graduation and enrollment. We are also in pre-production for Social Media Addiction and a series on voter education, since our presidential elections are slated for next May.”
Oceans of Thanks – TP of SE Asia writes, “We offer oceans of thanks for your unceasing prayers. Because of your prayers God is walking and working together with us. More people are coming to see the True God through our products. Many recommend our products, and they seriously need them. We believe that God will change the hearts of people who hear the Message through our tools and trainings. Please pray for us to be able to train trainers for evangelism, to have wisdom to produce effective products, and to protect and guide our staff.”
“We are thrilled!” Tom Silkwood of GNPI-Thailand and Freedom Films Productions writes, “The air pollution in Chiang Mai is what everybody here seems to be talking about these days. With burning eyes, scratchy throats, and temperatures over 100 degrees, we long for the monsoons to come and clean the air. In the meantime, the work goes on and we are thrilled to report many more Thai people are hearing the Message of salvation and grace through videos, DVDs, and testimonies we upload to the Internet. We are greatly encouraged by you fellow believers who share in this calling with us through prayer and support to make the ministry possible.” Please click here to visit the Website.
Focal Points – Sergei Golovin of GNPI-Ukraine shares, “Thank you very much for your care, support, and prayers! We have been focusing on the ongoing work of online ministries, student follow-up, the Reliable Foundation open apologetics club, translation, and publishing. New resources development is another focal point that has also been pretty fruitful. We have completed recordings of an audio Bible in the Crimean Tatar language, produced a new video episode of Scientists of God (Isaac Newton) and a couple more Creation Moments audio episodes, and prepared children’s programming curriculum for summer projects. May the Lord be praised!”
Threats! Simmi Dhingra of GNPI-Chandigarh, India, reports, “Things are very tough here with the persecution of our Christian pastors. They are threatened every day now. Yesterday a pastor and his wife came to us. They told us people have threatened them against conducting Christian activities. We informed the police. Please keep our pastors, Christian workers, along with all of our staff, in your prayers. Medical clinics, distributing food, and schools are some of the tools in which we can share the Gospel with the people without any problems. Thanks to all of our supporters who continue helping us to reach the lost.”
Making Music Available – Manee Massey of GNPI-Damoh, India, says, “We are recording a 40-50 song track of popular songs among Christians for church services, VBS, meetings, etc. It will be a really useful tool, since some churches might not be able to afford instruments and technology. This will give many house churches and small gatherings a tool to attract youth in their services. Please pray for this project as we have completed 10 songs. We also thank God for the opportunity we had to air the Message of Christ on Easter on national TV.”
The Global Gospel Update – Growing demand for The Global Gospel, and your generosity, means more languages are coming soon, with more languages requested all the time. So far, 20 of the world’s top 25 languages are complete or in process for sharing the same simple stories of the life of Christ.
NOMaD Trainings – Trainings for NOMaD teams have recently been given in Pachuca, Mexico; Santiago, Chile; and Gonaives, Haiti. We also have a new NOMaD coordinator joining the team in June. Watch for more details!
It Is Amazing! Twenty-two Solar Kits have been assembled in Joplin this year. Twenty-nine more requests are being processed. Eleven Solar Kits have been sent out from Damoh this year. Besides the current assembly workshops in Joplin and Damoh, a new Solar Kit workshop is underway in Thailand. Kpowbie Daniel, a Christian worker in Togo, writes about how much they appreciate their Solar Kit. Kpowbie says, “I just received some nice reports from one of my partner groups working in the northern areas. There is another group working among Muslims, and they too have similar reports. It is so amazing what the Lord is doing through this little yellow kit! We first trained them, gave them the kits, and the Holy Spirit is doing the rest. If there could be a way to have at least two more kits, we would be very happy.” Click here to watch a video of Kpowbie Daniel talking about the benefit of using a Solar Kit to share the Gospel.
