Welcome to Teach All Nations Mission

Teach All Nations Mission (TAN) is a global evangelical educational ministry birthed from the teaching ministries of Delron and Peggy Shirley.  The name Teach All Nations Mission was chosen to carefully indicate exactly what is the heart of the Shirley's mission.  TAN's commitment is to establish a solid foundation in the national pastors and leaders so that they can help enrich the people.

The vision is Christian teaching materials (in English and the local languages) in printed form and on audio and video tape, providing scholarships to Christian colleges and Bible schools for promising students, assisting in establishing and building of Bible schools, and broadcasting via the internet, radio, and television.

Report on Turks and Caicos Islands

Just over one year ago, a team from Teach All Nations had the privilege of traveling to the Turks and Caicos Islands to hold a week-long conference in the island paradise. But today, that paradise has been ravaged to the point that it could easily be mistaken for purgatory rather than paradise. At best, it looks like a war zone as it was severely damaged by Hurricane Irma. Fortunately, the family of the pastor who hosted our team survived the storm, but the same cannot be said about their physical property. Half of the church building was destroyed, and the roof was ripped off of other half. The pastor’s wife had invested all of her savings into building a kitchen in the church to feed the people, and all of her years of efforts were destroyed in minutes. The pastor also owned a couple rental properties that provided his livelihood; unfortunately, they too were completely destroyed. Although his personal home sustained severe damage, Irma left it on its foundations.

As soon as we received the news about the catastrophe, Teach All Nations responded with an offering to help them begin to rebuild. Partners of the ministry have generously added to our initial gift, and we are so grateful for that expression of support – especially, considering the fact that they had to start the recovery process even as another hurricane (Maria) was bearing down on them! If you would like to add your assistance to the recovery effort, please use either our online giving link or send your check labeled “TCI” to: Teach All Nations  3210 Cathedral Spires Colorado Springs, CO 80904

Mission Report October 2017 – Nigeria by Delron Shirley

When I arrived in the airport at Lagos, Nigeria, my host had arranged for an escort to meet me when I exited the plane to help me get through the airport since there are often people who take advantage of strangers as they try to find their way.  When the escort recognized me as a minister, he asked if I could pray for him before I got into the car to leave for the hotel; so, I laid hands on him right there on the curb.  When I opened my eyes after the prayer, I realized that I was surrounded by half a dozen of the airport security staff – some with their guns.  They immediately said that they wanted prayer as well!  What a welcome to a nation that is eager for God’s help.  [Read More]

 

 

 

 


 

October 2017 Meditation – Becoming a Man of God

Our safari guide knew exactly what we wanted, and he was determined that we would not be disappointed.  With his keen eye continually surveying the terrain, we crisscrossed the wildlife preserve until he finally gave us a hushed indication that he had spotted something at the edge of the waterhole -- something that he was sure would make us happy: lions!  Yes, there were lions -- and the encounter was even more exciting than we had expected.  The lions were not just lounging in the sun; they boasted a recent kill.  One lion sat on top of a zebra that it was holding under water in an apparent attempt to drown it.  She wanted to ensure that it was dead before letting go of the grip she held upon her prey.  An occasional snarl and roar warned the other members of the pride every time they tried to get a little too close to her treasure.

 

I must admit that it was a heart-stopping thrill to be so close to such an Animal Planet scene -- only in real life.  Although we weren’t there for the kill, it was easy to conjure up images of the National Geographic episode that must have played out only minutes before our arrival.  The lion had stealthily stalked her prey as the unsuspecting zebra paused for a morning drink.  When with a sudden bound of energy the predator burst from the tall grass, the zebra raced away at break-neck speed.  Exerting every ounce of energy she could muster, the lion pursued her target, finally bouncing upon its hindquarter and bringing it crashing to the ground.  As the zebra thrashed and struggled to get loose, the lion only tightened her clamp upon the defenseless subject.  With claws securely anchored into the zebra’s flesh, the lion was able to release the grip of her powerful jaw and move into position to attack the jugular vein.  After long minutes of anguishing struggle the zebra began to grow less and less resistant until it lay almost limp under the massive feline.  Then the predator began to drag her prize to the nearby waterhole to guarantee that her next meal would not surprise her by suddenly bounding back to its feet.
