NEW YORK NEW YORK   >>
“FOR THUS SAITH THE LORD GOD CONCERNING THE HOUSES OF THIS CITY… BEHOLD, I WILL BRING IT HEALTH AND CURE, AND WILL REVEAL UNTO THEM THE ABUNDANCE OF PEACE AND TRUTH.” Jer. 33:4, 6

Finally, finally, finally, it appears that we have broken through miles of bureaucratic red tape to begin our New York TV studio.

Yes, after two years of agonizing and endless meetings and hearings with the City of Englewood, New Jersey (just across the river from Manhattan), I am told we have the permits to begin remodeling the building we purchased over two years ago. Officials and neighbors feared that a TV station would cause dangerous radiation from its one watt microwave equipment. So we had to bring in expert witness to prove that our “radiation” was less than a cell phone! We lobbied the building board, the members of the city council, most of the neighbors — dear Lord, I think we lobbied everyone but the dog catcher!

So why all this hassle over one small studio? I think most of our dear TBN family knows that we have a full power TV station, Channel 54, up the Hudson River, licensed to Poughkeepsie, New York. While a part of the greater New York market, it was too far from Manhattan to require “must carry” on all the many cable stations. But all that changed with the move to digital TV mandated by the FCC. To our delight, we found we were able to build our new DTV transmitter nearly 20 miles closer to the “Big Apple,” thus requiring must carry from the cable stations reaching most of the millions of households of the number ONE market of the U.S.A.! Also, the TV studio must be in close proximity to the big city. So, we have sold our studio up in Fishkill, New York and purchased a new building in Englewood, New Jersey just across the George Washington Bridge that spans the Hudson River between Manhattan and New Jersey.

I hope I’m not boring you with all these details, but I thought, for once, I will let my partners in on a behind the scenes look at some of the agony we go through to get Christian TV into every household of America! I also hope you dear prayer partners will understand better why we need your intercessory prayers as your TBN continues to explode with growth at home and abroad! Believe me, these battles are not just governmental and technical problems — I know that spiritual warfare has been going on in the heavens over New York City! God’s word says:
“WE WRESTLE NOTAGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD, BUT AGAINST PRINCIPALTIES… AGAINST THE RULERS OF DARKNESS OF THIS WORLD, AGAINST SPIRITUAL WICKEDNESS IN HIGH PLACES.” Eph. 6:12
Paul the apostle warns us to put on “the whole armor of God.” He goes on to say:
    “PRAYING ALWAYS WITH ALL PRAYER AND SUPPLICATION IN THE SPIRIT.” Eph. 6:18 So, dear, dear Partners: Rejoice, but do not stop praying!
Believe me, the battles are not over as we are building a new studio for Canton, Ohio which will now reach into the great city of Cleveland! Also, the FCC has issued the construction permit for Virginia Beach, Virginia! Finally, new studios are under renovation for Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and the Milwaukee,Wisconsin market!

WOW! And besides all of this, dear Ben Miller, our vice president of engineering, is building new digital TV transmitters for all of our full power stations — besides keeping tabs on nearly 300 low and medium powered stations sprinkled across the U.S.A.! Not to mention the calls that come in daily from our foreign stations, satellite uplinks and on and on and on!

So, what’s at stake and what’s the reason for all of this monumental warfare? I know you know — SOULS! Yes, the eternal souls of mankind. I love dear Reinhard Bonnke’s slogan — “LET’S PLUNDER HELL TO POPULATE HEAVEN!”

I say a hearty “AMEN” to that saying and, praise God, we are doing just that as over 6,500 TV stations, cable station affiliates, and little dishes now receive SEVEN TBN networks from 47 satellites around the world — praise the Lord God most high!

How can Jan and I begin to thank you for your continued faithful support? We cannot, but our Heavenly Father can! He alone can thank you, bless and prosper you as together we take this Gospel to the whole wide world!

We love you, as I love to say, “32 years long and strong”!

Station manager, Alan Box, along with Paul and Jan in front of TBN’s Philadelphia station. Renovations are underway—soon Philadelphia will have a beautiful, new studio!

HELLO NEW YORK CITY! Permission to build TBN’s studios in Englewood, NJ has finally been granted. Soon we’ll be broadcasting into the “Big Apple”! Praise the Lord!

Paul at the site of TBN's powerful, new DTV transmitter on Mt. Beacon in New York. It's located 20 miles closer to Manhattan than the old analog transmitter!

“There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard” (Ps. 19:3). Yes, YOUR TBN is now covering the world with the gospel through its network of 47 satellites, reaching more than 12,000 TV and cable systems!

Paul and Jan gave a word of greeting and thanks to Bishop David Evans and the congregation of Bethany Baptist Church in Lindenwold, NJ during their special “Welcome TBN” service this past June. Thanks to the great support and tireless lobbying efforts of Bishop Evans and the wonderful pastors in the Englewood area, TBN was given permission to begin construction of our new studios!

Jan had the joy of showing Dr. Lester Taylor, pastor of Community Baptist Church in Englewood, NJ, the plans for TBN’s new studios.

Jan was delighted to meet up with Franklin Graham, during the Billy Graham Crusade in New York City. Franklin’s ministry, Samaritan’s Purse, is helping to provide medical supplies and equipment for Jan’s “Smile of a Child” hospital in Haiti.
