The first half of 2020 has been difficult for everyone and devastating for some. But there is good news! The challenges of this pandemic have opened the hearts of many to reevaluate and search for hope in Jesus.
Clicks on ads about hope increased by 170 percent. According to Google Trends for the month of March, Internet searches related to prayer in 75 countries skyrocketed to their highest levels in five years. Technology is removing barriers.
Like you, GNPI recognizes that never in our lives have the doors swung open so wide. The gospel is entering the homes of those who were uncomfortable walking through the doors of a church.
Our teams worldwide are responding by working overtime. With your partnership, they are creating new media, proclaiming the good news of Jesus, and empowering disciples to make disciples.
Viewership of the online devotional series Asa Ka Pa (Hope Matters, too!) has exploded over the past month of quarantine and now reaches over a million and a half Facebook users.
The Easter broadcast went out to a potential audience of 40 million people on national television, and 80,000 saw it on Facebook. The team is following up with each of those who requested prayer, Bibles, Christian resources, or answers to questions about faith in Jesus.
The staff members are taking turns recording nearly 10 new programs on a variety of topics and have seen an increase of 68 times more views and downloads.
This is only from three locations. Now multiply that many times over throughout eight centers and five Nomad teams, and you will catch a glimpse of how God is using your support to reach the billions of unreached people.
But there is still so much work to do. Many are dying without ever hearing how much God loves them. What can you do?
