"I WILL GIVE THEE THANKS IN THE GREAT CONGREGATION:
I WILL PRAISE THEE AMONG MUCH PEOPLE"! PSA. 35:18
Praise the Lord! We have known for several years
that YOUR TBN network was reaching multitudes
because of the thousands of letters, emails, phone
calls, and faxes — but to read the following report in
a secular Internet news release made my heart jump
"Pope Benedict's choice to publicly baptize the
most prominent Muslim in Italy, Egyptianborn
Magdi Allam, highlights a quiet
worldwide exodus from Islam. In recent years,
millions have moved on."
This new convert to Christianity, Magdi Allam, is the
deputy director of "Corriere della Sera," one of Italy's
oldest secular newspapers!
Ah, dear Partners, our investments in the Arabic
Healing Channel are paying off! Is all of this the result
of TBN? Of course not; but, believe you me, we have
had a part! The main reason for this huge exodus
from Islam is simply God's time to visit the Middle
East and Africa! Glory be to God Most High! God
is using many ministries, including
TBN, to reach right into homes
via the DTH (direct-tohome)
Formerly forbidden nations that make conversion to
Christianity a death sentence, cannot keep the signal
out! Praise the Lord! What really sent me almost to
heaven was the (secular) report that:
"In every hour 667 Muslims convert to
Christianity. Every day 16,000 Muslims convert
to Christianity, and every year 6 million Muslims
convert to Christianity."M.
The astounding fact that an article of this nature
would dare to publish such information negative to
Islam is overwhelming. The report goes on to say:
"Allam's public baptism came just 10 days after the
body of Catholic Archbishop Paulos Faraj Rahho of
Mosul, Iraq was found in a shallow grave after being
kidnapped by al-Qaeda February 29. The ceremony
[of baptism] came just three days after an al-Qaeda
tape threatening the Pope and condemning cartoons
of Mohammed. Muslims who convert to other
religions are subject to a standing order of death for
apostasy. The baptism of Allam is an act of defi ance
in the face of Islamic threats."
Ah, dear Partners — Jan and I cannot begin to tell
you how important your partnership is to TBN and this
HARVEST that is literally pouring in! Jesus warned us that
at the end of this age, "The harvest [would be] great, but
the laborers would be few" (Matt. 9:37)! We must keep
this great TBN network on at home, but especially in the
foreign lands! The prophet Joel's word is here! "Upon all
fl esh," shall the Holy Spirit be outpoured. Pray as never
before that God will use YOU and me and TBN to help
fi nish bringing in the fi nal harvest!
There is so much more to this news network report.
It will thrill you to read it all on the Internet at:
Remember, a whole new full power station is coming to
Denver, Colorado; new studios are required in several of our
home stations; plus the conversion to HDTV on February
17, 2009. Keep us strong at home or the foreign outreaches
could suffer and go off the air.
One last report to thrill you —
"Following decades of terrorist rule, Palestinians are
being quietly converted, holding in-home services to
avoid detection. Says one evangelist, 'I've been working
among these people for thirty years, and I promise you
I've never seen anything like this'!"
Can Jan and I count on you? I know we can! For 35
years you have never let us down!
Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice ye righteous: and shout
for joy, all ye that are upright in heart. Psa. 32:11
We love you more with each passing year!
