BURLINGTON - PHILADELPHIA — OURS!   >>
“HE SENDETH FORTH HIS COMANDMENT UPON THE EARTH: HIS WORD RUNNETH VERY SWIFTLY.” PSA. 147:15

How we rejoiced last October as escrow closed and TBN flashed ON THE AIR over the great cities of Burlington, New Jersey and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania! Yes, praise God, Channel 48 covers the fourth largest TV market in the nation with nearly ten million souls under its coverage pattern!

I’m sure most of you already know about this new station, as we have rejoiced about it several times on Behind the Scenes. But there is more to this great story. The station’s studio was not included in the sale, which turned out to be a blessing. First of all, the building was grossly inferior and was located on the bank of the Delaware River. We learned that it had been flooded several times — the most recent flood left six feet of water, along with catfish, in the main downstairs floor! The poor engineers feverishly had to move most of the equipment to the second floor just to stay on the air! WOW! Talk about needing to WALK ON WATER!

So, last December, I and a few of our staff, flew back to Philadelphia to look for a new TV studio where we will have local Praise the Lord. I am sure in so great a metropolitan area we will find some exciting new talent and programs that will bless us all on the TBN network. In fact, Bishop David Evans of Bethany Baptist Church is already on at 6:00 AM on Sunday mornings in Philadelphia, as well as the entire worldwide TBN network.

Well, we looked and looked at many buildings — mostly dismal, old, empty factory buildings — most depressing! But finally we found it! The building is down on Columbia Avenue, just ten minutes from the international airport and is just the right size for a TV studio with a very nice looking front and architecture. Even as I write this letter, I learned that the owners have accepted our offer — considerably less than the asking price! The price — $900,000 — I knew you would want to know. So I am asking everyone, especially in Burlington and Philadelphia, to add a little extra this month as the work of renovation and converting a woodworking shop to your new studio home in Philadelphia begins. Actually, if everyone would add about ten dollars to your regular pledge, or at least make it a one time gift, we would have the building free and clear, plus lights, cameras, and all the necessary equipment to put this fourth great market on the map!

So, dear Partners — rejoice, rejoice! This great area was one of the last few major cities where TBN did not have a mighty full power TV station. Praise God — with TV 48 on the air, we now cover about 95 percent of the households of America!

But this is not all — we must now build a second full power transmitter for HDTV or high definition TV as ordered by the FCC. Another half million dollars, but the good news: with HDTV we can, through new compression technology, transmit all four of our networks through-the-air, as well as to the cable stations! Yes — TBN; The Church Channel; JC-TV, our youth channel; and Enlace USA, our Spanish language network! More good news: the cost of HDTV sets is coming down and some are including the HDTV tuner as well as the current analog tuner. Be careful, though: If you buy a wide screen TV be sure it has the HDTV TUNER built in it! I saw one at Target recently for $799.00, which is still a bit high, but prices will come down. In the meantime you can get just an HDTV tuner and connect it to your present analog TV set. It will cost about $299.00. Check with Radio Shack or most any electronics store for more information.

So what does all this new technology mean? Ah, dear Partners, I’m so glad you asked — it means SOULS, SOULS for the great Kingdom of God! My heart rejoices every time a new station comes on the air. Almost immediately I see the beautiful white slips from our sweet telephone prayer partners — meaning a new soul has prayed the sinner’s prayer and, as the grand old hymn declares, “There’s a new name written down in Glory”! Yes, white slips are already coming in from Burlington and Philadelphia, plus many other towns and cities in the suburbs. Praise the Lord!

For the past 31 years, Jan and I have seen TBN grow from one little low power station in the Los Angeles area, to over 6,500 worldwide, linked together by 46 great satellites. The Gospel, through TBN, covers every continent on earth and about two-thirds of this world’s SIX BILLION souls can tune us in! If that does not fire your soul — well as dear, old E.V. Hill would say, “your wood is wet!”

Come on, dear Partners — please let Jan and me hear from you. Join this growing TBN family and help us keep this great Voice ON THE AIR till Jesus comes! Did you know that we send over a million of these newsletters out, but only about 150 thousand respond with a love gift?! This grieves my heart, but I know many of you do not know the awesome history of how God alone raised up this great network — so you know what — God just spoke to my spirit even now as I am writing this letter to you and told me to

GIVE ALL OF YOU IN THE NEW BURLINGTONPHILADELPHIA AREA A COPY OF MY NEW BOOK, “HELLO WORLD.”

It is the awesome story of TBN and the many miracles God brought to pass to bring this great Voice that covers the world into being. Tuck in a love gift if you can, but if you cannot, I’ll send it to you free and post paid! I’ll even try to autograph your copy.

Please remember this — only fruit bearers can claim St. John 15:7: “IF YE ABIDE IN ME AND MY WORDS ABIDE IN YOU, YE SHALL ASK WHAT YE WILL AND IT SHALL BE DONE UNTO YOU.” John 15:7

Oh how we love to quote and claim this precious verse. But please read the whole 15th chapter. That promise is only for fruit bearers! Are you bearing fruit (souls) for the Kingdom?

“YE HAVE NOT CHOSEN ME, BUT I HAVE CHOSEN YOU THAT YE SHOULD GO AND BRING FORTH FRUIT…”

Now read the last part of verse 16:

“THAT WHATSOEVER YE SHALL ASK OF THE FATHER IN MY NAME HE MAY GIVE IT UNTO YOU.” John 15:16

I absolutely believe that the reason some prayers are not answered is because the dear saint IS NOT BEARING ANY FRUIT!

Dear Partner, become a FRUIT BEARER TODAY by helping us win precious souls for the Kingdom. Over 27 million souls, that we know of, have come to Christ through YOUR TBN these past 31 years!

God bless you. Jan and I, with all of the prayer partners at TBN, will be lifting you in prayer and agreeing with you for that need or miracle you are asking for.

Now say it with me everyone—

WELCOME, BURLINGTON-PHILADELPHIA

to this great big, beautiful family: TRINITYBROADCASTING NETWORK!
