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 the heart of Delron and Peggy’s mission is.
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, 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.
Articles and book excerpts from the teachings and mission adventures of Dr. Delron Shirley. Each article is always timely and thought-provoking as it uncovers insights into walking with God.

I grew up with the Carolina colloquialism of a ditty being any short, pithy saying or writing. There is one for each day of your life. As you read them, I hope they are interesting and inspiring.
Our parents are celebrating their seventieth birthdays in the next few days – Mom on May 30 and Dad on June 15. When we asked them how they would like to celebrate this milestone event, they said that they would like to use this opportunity to reach an entire nation for Jesus. Yes, that’s what they said – an entire nation! Dad then went on to explain that Every Home for Christ had just launched a new project that will take the gospel to every doorstep in the world within the next twenty years and that there had been budgets calculated for the cost for each nation. He added that the budgets for some of the smaller nations were actually relatively small – within the reach of a single family if they just had the vision to do so.
Some of you may know that our dad has been actively involved in the work of Every Home for Christ for a number of years, but most of you may not know that he was actually featured in last winter’s Every Home for Christ Magazine in an article entitled “Heroes Among Us.” With a legacy like that, we felt that it would only be fitting to further that heritage by helping him fulfill the vision of sponsoring an entire nation.
Some of you may also know a bit of our mom’s story – how her life was saved and changed by one simple piece of gospel literature. When she was on the verge of suicide, she picked up a gospel tract that someone had left with her in the hospital. After reading the message and praying the prayer at the end, she suddenly felt that life was worth living and the last forty-two years is proof positive of the power of that little printed message. With that in mind, you can understand why she is also excited about the possibility of seeing an entire nation given gospel literature that can have the same impact in their lives as well.
Commemorating their seventieth birthdays, Mom and Dad want to raise the budget necessary to reach the entire nation of Fiji. If you would like to help us honor our mom and dad by contributing to this project, please use the button below to give.
We are also excited that Dad has decided to write his autobiography – So Send I You – a Missionary Story which contains a lot of stories that we didn’t even know! He wants to send a free copy to everyone who helps make this dream of reaching the entire country of Fiji a reality.
Three grateful sons,

Monthly Mission Report October 2019
We were invited to Ciudad Victoria, Mexico, to minister with our good friends and veteran missionaries, Bobby and Lynn Crow. And what a time we had with them! Peggy ministered at a women’s conference, and Delron taught in their Bible college. We ended our time with them by preaching and ministering in their church – actually, there was much more ministering than preaching. During the praise and worship time, Bobby said that he felt that we should take some time to pray for people with special needs; so, we called people forward and began to lay hands on them. One young man was delivered from demonic control. We later heard the story behind his situation. When he was jilted by a young lady in the church that he had hoped to marry, he became very depressed and withdrawn. Normally a very happy individual, he became extremely sad and expressionless. When we prayed for him, it became apparent that there was a demonic spirit controlling him; so, we rebuked it and commanded that it loose its control over his life. Immediately,

Although King David left an indelible impact on all of human destiny, we can see that he essentially “missed the boat” in one specific area of influence where he should have focused his attention. In this one arena of life — his parenting skills, well actually, his lack of them — David teaches us a number of lessons the hard way.
The Bible records that David fathered at least nineteen sons and one daughter through his nine legitimate wives. We are left no record of the offspring from his concubines, and we know that he kept at least ten such mistresses. We know the life stories of six of these progeny, and each story spins a tragic yarn.
Let’s begin by looking at the illegitimately-conceived son born from David’s illicit relationship with Bathsheba. Even before its very first breath, the child was marked for death through Nathan’s prophecy. Yet, the great king fasted and prayed for several days as the baby lingered in the balances between life and death until finally the death angel snatched the child’s soul away and David conceded in his battle for his life. This baby’s short lifespan painted the picture that the Apostle James described centuries later: lust conceives sin that ultimately produces death. (verse 1:15) David’s lust for Bathsheba produced the sinful acts of adultery, deception, intrigue, and murder with the end product of the baby’s death.
