Dear Partner in Ministry,
I’m incredibly fortunate to be part of a ministry that is 100% dedicated to evangelism. And, I love to share with you stories of people who have found salvation in Jesus because of your support of It Is Written. When I meet someone who has responded to the proclamation of the three angels’ messages, the Holy Spirit reminds me it is because of you that It Is Written is able to reach people for the kingdom’s sake.
While conducting evangelistic meetings in Idaho recently, we saw the Holy Spirit move in a powerful way. Numerous churches conducted Revelation Today: The Great Reset, and our team was privileged to meet many people whose lives were blessed during the series.
When we arrived in Idaho, we were excited to meet a couple I’ll call Rhonda and Pete. A year or so ago, they started watching the It Is Written channel, It Is Written TV. As they learned more about the Bible, they were grateful to God for opening their understanding, and showing them things they had never seen before in the Bible. They began searching for a church, and were led by God to the very church where Wes Peppers and I conducted an evangelistic series. Rhonda is a professional with a high-profile position, and she and Pete made sure they were at every meeting. When a close family member told Rhonda she was also planning to attend, Rhonda saw this as further confirmation God was leading her family. Because they had watched It Is Written TV, they arrived at the meetings already convicted and convinced of the truths of the Bible. As a result, they have given their lives to Christ, and have chosen to follow Him and His Word.
When It Is Written launched It Is Written TV, this is precisely what we had in mind. When we began the evangelism initiative in Idaho and Eastern Oregon, we did so knowing God had people here who would take hold of the Bible and be transformed. And in every instance, the souls who have been reached have been reached due to both the work of the Holy Spirit, and your commitment to seeing souls reached.
An unexpected blessing in Idaho occurred one day while we were at lunch. The young man who waited on us recognized us and asked if we were from a television ministry. He then told us that while he was in prison he watched It Is Written on television every week, and that because of the influence of It Is Written and other Christian programs, he accepted Jesus as His Saviour, and was delivered from a 15-year drug and alcohol addiction. Your support of It Is Written enabled this young man to be reached by God’s Spirit, and since that time his life has been totally transformed.
We know that when we share the Bible, God does great things. During the recent It Is Written mission trip to Corn Island, Nicaragua, one of the preachers made an appeal at the conclusion of a sermon, but received no response. It was near the end of the series, and she knew time was running out for those at her site to choose to surrender their lives to Jesus. Not wanting to end her appeal, the preacher—one of our mission trip team—prayed a silent prayer before making another appeal. This time, three young men who had been studying with a Bible worker came forward. At least one of them had been struggling with drug use.
After responding to the appeal, they fully surrendered their lives to Jesus. All three of the young men have been baptized!
Our Nicaragua mission team witnessed many undeniable miracles during the mission trip. But there is no greater miracle than the miracle of a changed heart.
You have made the difference in the lives of so many people won to faith in Jesus. I am looking forward to telling you more about the people we saw come to Jesus in Bolivia recently. Pastor Robert Costa and I preached each night, Robert translating my English into flawless Spanish. We met a young man who was a professional MMA fighter but has now found new hope in Jesus; a businesswoman who has chosen Jesus as her Lord and Savior; a medical student who came to Bolivia to become a doctor, and has now become a Christian and a church member, walking with Jesus. You have made the difference.
What we cannot do is slow down. As we look forward to more major evangelistic outreaches, I am asking that you would prayerfully support the work being done by God through It Is Written. We have major evangelistic series planned, including a series to reach the entire state of Alaska in the spring of next year. We have major international evangelistic outreaches planned for the Philippines, the Dominican Republic, Colombia, Mexico, and Cuba before this year is over. And much, much more.
Your kind donation today will be used to reach more of the very people I have mentioned. Married couples, students, young men in prison. People from all walks of life in numerous parts of the world. All of them in need of a Savior. The Savior you and I know. Thank you for your gracious support of It Is Written. Your investment in souls will grow God’s kingdom, and result in more people living lives of faith, hope and love.
Yours in the blessed hope,
Pastor John Bradshaw
President, It Is Written
