SBN CONTINUES TO GROW
By the time you read this, we should have added 2 million more homes, located in Southern California. Of course, I’m speaking of the SonLife Broadcasting Network, which means television available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. As well, we’ve just gone on television in the Netherlands, Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia. Also, we’ve just added 8 million more homes in Germany, making a total of some 25 million in that particular country. Incidentally, we are now covering about 74 million homes in the United States. Other areas are pending, and we will give you the information as soon as it is finalized.

FAMILY WORSHIP CENTER MEDIA CHURCH
Even though I have mentioned this a time or two in the past, please allow the repetition. Every Sunday morning, Donnie, Frances, and Gabriel read out the names of all the people who have just joined Family Worship Center Media Church. How so pleased and happy we are to have you.

We read the first name of the individual plus the country or the state. We do not call out the name of the town in which you live so that we may protect your privacy. However, please understand, we are so happy to have you in the Family Worship Center Media family, which includes people from all over the world. Our task is great, but our God is able.

TITHING
People write constantly and ask me where they should pay their tithe. Actually, the answer to that is very simple.

You should support that which feeds you. Wherever you are getting spiritually fed, wherever you are learning the Word of God, and wherever you are being blessed, that is where you owe your support.

Incidentally, some ask the question as to what the requirements are to become a member of Family Worship Center Media Church.

The answer to that, as well, is very simple: we just require that you be born again. I came to the conclusion a long time ago that if such is satisfactory for the Lord, it certainly should be satisfactory with us.

Some have asked as to how much money it costs.

There is no charge. Of course, we believe if you are blessed in the Lord and that SonLife Broadcasting Network is a blessing to you, you will give in support of that blessing. However, that’s between you and the Lord.

THE GREAT-GRANDKIDS
The older I get, the more I love these children. I speak of Sam, Ryder, Abby, Lola, Harper, and Harrison. Of course, I’m also speaking of the newest great-granddaughter, Caroline Frances.

As I dictate these notes, she just started sitting alone the other day. She can’t quite pull herself up now, and as she falls, she doesn’t know how to stop it yet, but she’s coming along. To be sure, my eyes are not big enough to see her, or any one of the great-grandchildren for that matter.

OUR FIELD IS THE WORLD
I mean that literally. I believe the Lord has instructed me to place the television programming in every city in the world that will accept it. That’s what we are attempting to do. As well, I thank the Lord more than I have words to express for the emails and the testimonies that we are getting from people being saved, baptized with the Holy Spirit, healed, and delivered by the power of God. I believe it is only the beginning. I believe we are about to see a harvest of souls such as we have never known before. I also believe this is going to be the last great move before the coming Great Tribulation. Of course, between now and then, we are expecting the Rapture of the church. I realize that most in modern churches do not believe in the Rapture, with most of them not even knowing anything about it.

However, I believe it’s clear in the Word of God, and I believe it’s definitely going to happen.

Incidentally, if one believes in the Resurrection, then one believes in the Rapture. They are two words for the same event (I Thess. 4:13-18; I Cor., Chpt. 15).

OFFERS
I would pray that you would take full advantage of the offers that we’re making in this issue of The Evangelist. We believe that we have some of the finest material in the world regarding the subject matter at hand. Everything we produce, we do our very best to make it quality. In other words, this is for the Lord, so it should be the best. I’m speaking not only of the content, but the product itself.

A dear lady wrote the other day and stated, “Brother Swaggart, everything we get from your ministry is quality.” Then she went on to say, “I can’t say the same about all others.” We want you to be blessed.
