October 2013TRANSLATION OF LANGUAGES
Translating something into another language twentyfour
hours a day seven days a week, is a world all to itself.
At the time of this writing, we think we have found the
way that it is to be done, at a minimum of expense. But
yet, it’s something we feel we must do. It doesn’t do any
good to air Programming in a country in a language that
the people do not understand, as would be obvious.
The first two languages, which we hope to have in
operation by the time you read this, are Russian and
German. We have selected these two, because we have
a strong penetration in both of these countries. To reach
them with the Gospel, as should be overly obvious, we
must speak their language. We think that subtitling will
meet the need. In fact, if we have a heavy penetration
in any country where the language is different, we feel
we must come to these people in their language. While
English is the language of the world, still, most people
in countries that use another language do not know
English. As we have said previously, we have had much
experience in translation work, but only pertaining to
a program that was about one hour a week in duration
or something like that. Twenty-four hours a day, seven
days a week, is a horse of another color so to speak. So,
I thank you so very, very much, for the help that you are
giving us to carry out this extremely important task.
JESUS CHRIST AND HIM CRUCIFIED
We feel that the MESSAGE
OF THE CROSS is the single
most important Message on the face of the earth today
and, in fact, ever has been. Our Lord told us that if a
person gained the whole world but lose his own soul,
what has it profited him? What a question! So, when
we say that there’s nothing in the world more important
than this, I think it quickly becomes obvious that we are
not overstating the case.
THE UPCOMING CAMPMEETING
Of course, I’m speaking of the Thanksgiving Campmeeting.
The dates are November 27 through December
the 1. It’s going to be a little bit of Heaven on Earth, and
whatever you do, you need to do your best to be with us. There will be music and singing translated into worship
like you’ve never seen before, we think. As well, the
preaching of the Gospel, and we speak of THE MESSAGE
OF THE CROSS, will be proclaimed just the way, we would
hope, that the Apostle Paul would give it to you were he
here. So, whatever you do, if you can, make your plans
to be with us, and I don’t think you will regret it.
LOOK WHAT THE LORD HAS DONE . . .
By the time you read this, we should be coming pretty
close to 75,000,000 homes in America, which have access
to the SONLIFE BROADCASTING NETWORK
. There are
115,000,000 homes in America which have a Television
set, and we hope very shortly to reach every last one of
them. So let me say the following:
THANK YOU . . .
For every one of you who help us in this worldwide
task, thank you for what you have done and for what
you are doing. The facts are simple, we couldn’t do what
God has Called us to do without your help. In fact, we
fully believe that God has Called you the same as He
has Called us. It’s a monumental task, the reaching of
the entire world, but that’s our goal, and we must not be
disobedient to the Heavenly Vision.
Let me speak just a moment to our FAMILY WORSHIP
CENTER MEDIA CHURCH MEMBERS
. So many of you
support this work monthly with your financial help and
your prayerful support. I’m encouraging you, every one
of you, to do something each and every month.
We get letters, e-mails, and phone calls into our office
constantly asking the question, “Where do I pay my tithe?”
The answer to that is very simple. It really doesn’t
take much thought. You as a Believer owe your support
to that which feeds your soul. That’s how simple that it
really is. If you are being fed by SONLIFE BROADCASTING
, that’s where you owe your support.
I want each and every one of you to realize what a
privilege it is to be a part of that which is designed by
the Lord to touch the world. I don’t say that lightly, I
say it very seriously, because I fully believe it to be true.
And as God has Called me and all of the Ministers of this
Organization, He has as well Called you. I believe that
with all of my heart. So, I’m asking you to continue to
stand with us both prayerfully and financially. We have
a great task ahead of us, but we have a Great God.
