What do you love about GNPI, and what excites you about the future?
I love the way God led and enabled GNPI to adapt to current technology over the years, from producing filmstrips to releasing DVDs to working on apps.
I love the dedication and enthusiasm for seeing the gospel available to all people in all parts of the world.
I love the creativity that produced Solar Kits and Nomad Teams.
I love the Joplin staff and the long-term commitment many of them have made to GNPI.
I love the regional directors/staff and the abilities they bring to the work in their homelands.
I love that the desire for sharing the gospel that exists in ALL the offices leads to the need for more funding and the “100 Lights” campaign.
I love watching others discover the amazing ministry of GNPI and pledge 76% of the funding of the “100 Lights” campaign. (And, I’ll love that others join and celebrate the day when the full amount is fulfilled!)
I am grateful to have known GNPI for so many years and to be a small part of the ministry!
