You are an influencer. In fact, you influence the lives of many more people than you probably realize. Your influence includes your spouse, your children and other family members. But it extends far beyond that: it reaches your friends, your co-workers and the people you meet at church and other social gatherings. Your influence even includes the servers at the restaurant or the people with whom you do business every day. It’s a fact – you are having an influence on the lives of people all around you. The question is not IF you are an influencer, but what kind of influence you are making.
Our goal at TLN is to have a positive spiritual impact in the life of every single person we reach through our television programs, websites, social media pages, streaming and media platforms. It’s important to us to reach people at their point of need so that we can lead them into a meaningful relationship with God, where they can find a lasting spiritual answer and a life change.
We stand committed to being a spiritual influence in our home markets of greater Chicagoland and the San Francisco Bay Area – but with the miracle of digital media, we are expanding. As you partner with TLN, you join us in extending your influence – and together we now influence the world for Christ!
One wonderful example is the Total Living Network’s extended influence in Romania, Moldova and Eastern Europe through our ministry partner ALFA OMEGA TV. TLN’s original programs are translated and transmitted to a population of over 11 million people in that region. Because you are standing together with us in prayer and financial support, we play a vital role in ALFA OMEGA’s spiritual impact on those formerly dark communist countries. Thank you for being a part of that remarkable opportunity.
But our international outreach doesn’t stop there. Because of TLN’s ability to transmit live 24 hours a day through Roku, Amazon Fire and other IP platforms, we have reports of people watching on their computers, tablets and mobile phones in Middle Eastern countries such as Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Israel and Turkey. Some of our largest international viewing is in Mexico, Tanzania, Australia, the Netherlands, Dominican Republic, Italy, Canada and the United Kingdom. Knowing that people are watching TLN’s message of God’s love from so many locations – even India, Columbia and Brazil– it’s obvious that our partnership is working! Together, our influence is having an impact far beyond our immediate circles and neighborhoods. More than ever we’re living out Mark 16:15: “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.”
On behalf of TLN and ALFA OMEGA TV, our viewers in Chicagoland, central Illinois, northwest Indiana, the San Francisco Bay area and around the world who are being reached with the gospel because you are standing with us, I want to say a heartfelt thank you for sharing the vision.
During this critical time of the year, please consider a generous gift for this month.In appreciation, we’d like to recognize you as a Total Living Network “International Partner” with a tribute on our stations that will encourage others to support our global mission. (Of course, you may remain anonymous as well. Please indicate your preference on the enclosed form.) Your support means “the world” to us.
Your servant in Christ,
Jerry K. Rose
P.S. One of our new fall programs was incorrectly titled in last month’s newsletter. The correct name is Faithwire which can be viewed on Mondays @ 8:30pm. We apologize for any confusion.
A Note From Our President – From My Heart to Yours
When I rededicated my life to Christ as a young person, I knew I wanted to share my faith as best I could with anyone interested in this incredible journey. I asked God to use me any way He saw fit to reach as many people as possible, with my limited abilities and resources. Isn’t it amazing how God works!
Through TLN, we’re reaching individuals across the globe from our modest-but-mighty facility. When I say “we,” I mean you and me. While we are going about our daily activities and routines, we’re sharing Christ 24/7 through the efforts we both make to keep TLN proclaiming the Good News of Christ. And we’re sharing our faith far beyond our personal sphere of influence. People find hope and help in areas much further than our own communities and even continents and we are working together to make that possible.
God multiplies all that we give Him. I was thrilled to hear recently that in a country as close to us as Canada, thousands of minutes have been viewed on our streams and media platforms. And at the same time people in Europe, the Middle East, Mexico and more are viewing. Ironically, a technical term for viewing content on media platforms is “consuming.” Isn’t it incredible that people around the globe are “consuming” the life-changing messaging of God! I can imagine the personal and cultural benefits that faith-based news is producing. Others are hiding God’s Word in their hearts through teaching and preaching programs and impacting their neighborhoods for good. Some are learning for the first time how to live healthy lives. Those who are thirsting for hope and change are finding it in areas as far away as Turkey and Brazil on TLN.
One of my favorite phrases is “we are stronger together.” That is so true. As Christ’s message of love and forgiveness reaches into communist, socialist and other repressive regions, your support makes you an International Partner with TLN.As you give this month, we would like to thank you on-air as a TLN International Partner, to encourage others to generously support our mission. (Of course, if you’d prefer to give anonymously, please indicate that as well.)
Together, we’re called to go to the ends of the earth and preach the gospel to every creature. Ever-changing technology and God’s blessing on this ministry are making that possible. Our partnership is making that possible. Thank you!
