Feb. 19-21: Operation "Burning Heart" and GNTVGiving Light To Our World
President Tony Anobile has challenged Arizona churches to visit every door in AZ with the love of Jesus (Operation Burning Heart). Training to accomplish this will be held at the GLOW Rally (Giving Light To Our World) February 19-21 and we encourage each church member to attend.  In last month's newsletter, GNTV asked you to help us purchase more promo postcards that our members can take to the doors of a lost and dying world. Praise God, a generous supporter has answered this call with a sacrificial donation!  After hours of time in redesign, the attractive postcards will be ready for this event at Camp Yavapines.  Tony will kick off the training, inspiring testimonies about GLOW literature will be shared, and the Skeltons will unveil the new GNTV postcards to share at every door in Phoenix.

    A Sister Church Extends a Challenge

    Phoenix Central Adventist Church has put forth a challenge to fellow churches in Arizona. They have committed $10,000 in matching funds from their budget toward GNTV. The Phoenix Central Church pigwill match the contribution of any other church, up to a total of $10,000. One church has already accepted the challenge--Sun City/Peoria Adventist Church has donated $1,000.  With Central matching that amount, the Sun City/Peoria Church donation has resulted in raising $2,000 for GNTV. There is still $9,000 available for matching, so please talk to your church officials about this opportunity to double your investment.

    Faithful Viewers Help Fund Video Equipment

    A generous couple from Apache Junction started attending theGNTV Needs Equipment Mesa Palms Adventist Church a few months after watching GNTV. They have been so blessed by the programming that they recently signed a $10,000 check for GNTV to purchase its first production video camera with accessories! GTNV has been borrowing all of its production equipment so far, and the loan of this equipment will end in June. Without its own cameras, GNTV will not be able to continue local productions, which have enabled them to connect communities with their churches. As this supporter says, "You can't take your treasures with you to heaven, but you can send them on ahead!" That is exactly what they have decided to do, and they are challenging you to join them. They encourage you to consider a special donation to help Good News TV purchase their own production equipment to be able to continue local productions. Will you join them with your own special donation? Contact GNTV to learn how.

    Viewer Comments

    Javier called in several weeks ago, excited about Shawn Boonstra's "Unlocking the Signs" Seminar. He obtained the DVD series, translated them into Spanish, obtained permission from his pastor (Church of the Nazarene) and is sharing the information there every Wednesday night. He is teaching the 7th lesson already and has recently attended Sabbath services at Glendale Adventist Church for the first time!


    Don, from a Native American reservation, called with good feedback about our "Up Close" program and asked for the address of an Adventist church. He joined the mid-week bible study at the Camelback Church and plans to continue to attend.

    "I have caught this show twice now.  I love this guy!  He is awesome!  I learn so much in such a short period of time and I retain it because of his method of presentation.  What is funny is that I never heard of this station until we cancelled our cable tv.  We like to listen to honest pastors but found them few and far between on cable.  So, we saved money every month and saved our souls at the same time!  A two-fer.   Seriously, I am going to be watching your channel alot now that I know it exists.  And I want to know more about Pastor Asscherick too.  He's really, really good. Thanks, Pam."

    Antenna Installation Project 

    3ABN logo

    About 35 people attended our antenna installation workshop two weeks ago, most of whom need help getting GNTV or wanted to become a volunteer. John Baker and Doug Haydon are organizing volunteers to help people connect to our channel. But, we need your help as well. We have found that a team of 2-3 people installing together is sometimes most effective, so we need more volunteers from each church to help the dozens of people in our community who want to get our channel. If you would like to help GNTV with this antenna installation project, or if you need help for yourself or someone you know, then please call right away (480-264-1116).


    Tithe Envelope Stamping Project

    Envelope Stamping ProjectWe have been given permission to include "Good News TV" as a pre-printed option for offering on the AZ Conference tithe envelopes. The problem is that a 2 year supply of envelopes were already printed before GNTV existed. So, we now have rubber stamps and need your help! If you have a steady hand and a good aim, please contact GNTV to learn about how you can help with this stamping project
