April 2015SEVENTY-FIVE MILLION AND COUNTING
THAT'S RIGHT, WE ARE
in 75 million homes in America presently, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. By the first of the month, we should go on 5 million more. They won’t let me tell you where at this time, but I am eagerly anticipating this addition.
There are 115 million homes in America with a television set. We want to be in every single home. We feel that everyone deserves the opportunity to hear the gospel, whether they accept it or not.
Counting all the cable systems, satellites, and stations that we’re on overseas, and including the Internet, which is much larger than any of us know, we are told that some 2 billion people can tune in to SonLife Broadcasting Network if they so desire.
It’s going to be a blockbuster! It’s going to be a little bit of heaven on earth! The dates are April 1-5. If at all possible, you should be making your plans now to be with us. Regarding music and singing and regarding the preaching and teaching of the Word, we think it will be worship such as you’ve never heard before. If you can come and don’t, you will wish you had.

We have people every single Sunday morning that visit Family Worship Center, and how so glad and happy we are to have you. Whether you are just passing through, or you especially come for the service, I don’t think you will be disappointed. So, on your vacation this coming summer, or whenever, make your plans to stop by and be with us. The service begins at 10 a.m. on Sunday morning and at 6 p.m. on Sunday night. If you happen to be with us on a Wednesday, the service begins at 7 p.m.
I pray that you will read the article in this magazine on China (see page 13). I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
We have, we think, some of the best offers in the world in each issue of The Evangelist, and this one is no exception. We do our best to give the finest product that money can buy, and at the same time, we cut the price to the bone in order for more people to obtain these offers. So, whatever you do, take advantage!
I’m speaking of all the well wishes as it regards my 80th birthday. That sounds old and, in fact, is, but to be frank, I’ve never felt better in my life, and we give the Lord all the praise and all the glory. We still have an awful lot more to be done for the work of the Lord, which we cannot do without your help.
I AM SO GRATEFUL
I am speaking of the prayerful support and the financial support that you give to this ministry. I told the congregation at Family Worship Center a short time ago, which many of you heard, that I believe the single most important thing in the world was and is the Message of the Cross. I realize that’s quite a statement, but I believe it to be true. What Jesus did on the Cross nearly 2,000 years ago is the greatest thing, as should be overly obvious, that ever happened to the human race. The door was opened to heaven that all who will may enter in. It is the Cross of Christ that has made and does make it all possible.
The emails, letters, phone calls, and testimonials of whatever stripe that we are receiving from all over the world is encouraging to say the least. I do believe that we are getting some of the greatest testimonies that we’ve ever gotten in the history of this ministry. The Message of the Cross is bringing about the victory that it alone can bring. Thank God, many are taking advantage of what the Lord did so long ago, but which is just as effective now as it was then and ever shall be.
Harper is our great granddaughter. She is 3 years old. She belongs to Jennifer and Cliff. She was riding with her grandmother the other day, and to show how much she listens to the programming (they live in Atlanta, Georgia), she said “Mee Mee Frances says, ‘Praise the Lord,’ while Papaw says, ‘My, my, my.’” She is exactly right.
Again, thank you so very much for standing with us. Our prayers are that God will continue to bless you abundantly so, as I am certain that He will.
