“…the righteous gives and does not hold back.” Proverbs 21:26
The power and blessing of Jesus Christ have been flowing mightily in our ministry in 2017! And yet, as we come to the end of another year, crises in our country like political corruption, freedom of speech, national identity and even nuclear threats are coming fast and furious. Our leaders are struggling for the answers that seem too elusive.
I don’t know of a more important time for our Total Living ministry to be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on television and the internet to shine the light of the Gospel! We believe in the power of divine guidance and wisdom, and in our mission to broadcast programs that inform viewers of current events from a Biblical worldview and inspire them to pray and get involved in their churches and communities. We’re committed to creating life-changing experiences no matter where people are in their journey.
Crises create confusion, discouragement and loss of hope. Having faced three life-threatening illnesses, I’ve been there; not certain about my future or the future of my family. But on all three occasions, I’ve found peace in my relationship with Christ—a relationship that transcends my circumstances. God is my future and the future of my family and I can trust Him with everything that concerns me.
That’s what I want the Total Living Network to be in these times of crisis. My mission for TLN has never changed: I want our video ministry to be an oasis where people can find REAL HOPE. A place where they can find a PEACE that transcends their struggles and challenges—and even the bad news that is broadcast on television news outlets, internet blogs and social media posts minute-to-minute. That’s who we are and what we are here for…to be a shining light of hope and peace daily, weekly, monthly.
We urgently need your prayer and generous financial help to continue to do that. This has been a great year of ministry for TLN—included is an insert to show how, because of you, we’ve been able to produce the kind of programming that informs, inspires and challenges believers to be lights in their own neighborhoods and communities. Thank you!
But we know that we are called to do more; this is not the time in history for our light to dim or go out. I am sincerely asking you to prayerfully consider a very generous gift in this last month of the year. Your final contribution in 2017 will impact lives into 2018 and beyond! We appreciate your generosity in the past and thank you in advance for your faithful support.
Jerry K. Rose, Chairman of the Board, Total Living International
