“…the righteous gives and does not hold back.” Proverbs 21:26
Message from Jerry K. Rose
n 1971, Shirley and I were prayerfully considering going as missionaries to Africa. Our mission was to develop a television media outreach starting in Kenya and then spreading to other African countries. However, in the process God made it clear to us that we were not to go to Africa. Instead, we were to be involved in Christian television right here in America. It was a difficult time emotionally because while I knew my calling was in television media ministry, I had a special place in my heart for missions and the idea of developing an African media outreach was exciting.
Shirley and I did come to realize that after 11 years in secular television, our direction was American Christian television instead of the African mission field. But we had no way of knowing that His path would eventually lead to Chicago to become a part of the incredible ministry of TLN. A ministry that over the past 40 years has blessed millions and brought hope and salvation to multiple thousands of souls – because of your ongoing support. A ministry that is now expanding into an international media outreach – because of your faithful prayers!
A Note from our President – Debra Fraser
Called to the Mission
Never has there been a time that I been more called to the mission than now. There is so much going on that none of us has control over. My comfort is in the fact that I KNOW Who does. I believe those of us living in this unique time have been called to a unique purpose. So, my prayer is for supernatural, called-to-the-mission of Christ faith, strength and determination. I trust that you are in a similar place – using faith rather than fear as your guide and God’s will for you as your compass. When we have confidence in our Creator, then we have confidence in His plan for us. Nothing can separate us from God who is our rock, our fortress and our deliverer! That message is important to tell.
