As you hold this magazine in your hand—at this very moment—we should be handing out The Expositor’s New Testament to preachers in China. This is a miracle of unprecedented proportions, and I think you will agree. We’ve just had 50,000 printed, and they will be gone before you know it. Also, I have some great, great news. We have just finished translating the Old Testament into Chinese. The reason we’re giving out the New Testaments is because we are told that this will be the best way to begin, and they can get these through the border much easier than they can the full Bible. But before too very long, by the grace of God, we’ll be sending the full Bible into China.

As most of you know, China has a population of 1.3 billion people. That is about four times the population of the United States. As well, there are more churches in China than anywhere else in the world, due to the vast population. We must get The Expositor’s Study Bible to these pastors, and I think that you will agree.

Also, we’ve just gone on a vast cable system in the great country of Australia that reaches some 3 million homes. How thankful to the Lord we are regarding this open door. In fact, it is possible in most places of the world to pick up the SonLife Broadcasting Network, and we will not stop until we reach the entirety of the world, for that is what God has called us to do.


And yet, irrespective that the Lord has called us to do this, we simply couldn’t do it without you. And, please believe me, that’s not hype, but it is the truth. We need your prayerful support, and we need your financial support. And thank God for the scores of you who are so very, very faithful to the work of God in this respect. You share our burden, simply because you are doing what God has called you to do.


Christmas is going to be here before you know it, and I would pray that you would prayerfully consider using our product as Christmas gifts. To be frank, I don’t think there is anything in the world that would make a greater Christmas gift for anyone than The Expositor’s Study Bible. Anything that will help one understand the Word of God a little better is valuable indeed. And, to be sure, The Expositor’s Study Bible will most definitely accomplish that task. So, look over our catalog, or as well the offers in this magazine, and get some Christmas shopping done early.


I want to take this opportunity to thank so many of you who helped as it regards the terrible catastrophe of the flood here in the Baton Rouge area. Without a doubt this was one of the worst occasions in history for this part of the world. Some 60,000 homes were seriously damaged or destroyed. Some people lost everything they had.

We had one of the largest relief centers at Family Worship Center, which aided and abetted thousands of people. And as stated, we had scores of corporations, large companies, and individuals that gave clothing, cleaning products, plus 101 other items, which we dispensed to those in need from Family Worship Center. Again, thank you for praying for us, and thank all of you who participated.

And, before I close this section, I must say the following: I just want to thank the people of Family Worship Center for working tirelessly to help get this thing done. I think some of these people were working 20 hours a day, and without them we could not have done what we did.
