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.
The early Christians were accused of creating chaos everywhere they went. It was said that Paul either incited a riot or stirred up a revival. But they may actually be two sides of the same coin – the move of God that brings upheaval to the status quo and at the same time established God’s proper order to things. How long has it been since you were accused of turning the world upside down? In the pages of this little book, you can find out how release the impact of the kingdom of God into the world around you.

From the mid-1970s through the late-1990s, the American Express company promoted their travelers’ checks with the slogan, “Don’t leave home without them” – making it the most successful advertising campaign in commercial history. When the bulk of financial transactions shifted from cash to credit cards, it was a simple fix to substitute “it” for “them” – continuing the effective marketing tool. However cutting-edge this approach might have seemed at the time, it was actually almost two millennia behind the times. It was Jesus who originated the slogan when He told His disciples that they should not go out into the world to represent Him until they waited in Jerusalem to receive the infilling of the Holy Spirit, “Behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high” (Luke 24:49) – essentially “Don’t leave home without it”!
In this little study on the person, power, and promise of the Holy Spirit, Bible teacher Delron Shirley explores some of the vital provisions available to believers today – an expose into why Jesus tells us not to leave home without the fullness of the Holy Spirit.
As you read So Send I You, you’ll find the words “I,” “me,” and “my” a lot more times than I personally am comfortable with. Yes, So Send I You is my story, but it could – and should – also be your story. The only reason that I have talked about myself is with the hope that you can also see yourself – or, at least, the self you have always dreamt of being – reflected in at least some of the stories I’ve shared. In this book, you will read how God uniquely called, methodically positioned, and strategically sent me into the lives of so many all around the world. Such selection, grooming, and commissioning is not the privilege of a select few. It’s God’s plan for all His children – including you.
God has a very simple strategy for changing the world, and it can be spelled out with just three little letters: Y O U. My prayer is that these simple narratives will inspire you to present yourself to be the next one that Jesus sends to do His work in the world!

The nation of Nepal and the Body of Christ as a whole recently experienced a dual loss due to the COVID pandemic. Pastor Robert Karthak, one of the heroic pioneers that brought the gospel of Jesus Christ to the Hindu kingdom, passed away at the age of ninety-five, followed just a few days later by his son Samuel who had taken his father’s place as senior pastor of the church upon his retirement a few years ago.
Robert Karthak grew up in a nominal Christian home in the city of Kalimpong in the hill country of northeast India. After a radial conversion experience, he became zealous to share his faith with others – including taking a few short visits in 1950 and the following years to Nepal where he took opportunity to do some personal evangelism in spite of the strict laws prohibiting the practice of any religion other than Hinduism and Buddhism. In 1957, he took the bold step of actually organizing a church when – as some of the Christian pioneers in the country remember – all the believers in the country “could be counted on the fingers of one hand.” The congregation gradually grew in number and influence until the nation experienced an unprecedented spiritual visitation in the latter part of the last century. With the great influx of believers, the building was expanded a number of times and more than a hundred daughter churches were organized.

When asked where to start, the obvious answer is, “At the beginning.” By that, I’m not meaning to simply open the Bible to the first page and start with, “In the beginning…” Rather, I’m speaking of the most basic need to any Bible study – a Bible. With approximately nine hundred English translations available today, simply picking out a Bible to study could be a rather daunting task.
Before you actually decide which version of the Bible that you wish to focus on, it would be good to have at least a rudimentary understanding of why there is such a plethora of editions to choose from. One of the first reasons that so many translations have been made is the evolution of language. As our language develops, words take on new nuances and even totally different meanings; therefore, the Bible needs to be “refreshed” frequently so that its original message is not lost in this evolution. Let me give you a couple of nonbiblical examples that can help explain this shift in language. In asking my sons if they wanted to do a certain activity with me, I phrased the question, “Who’s up for …?” Their response was, “We’re down for that.” Two different generations used words that are actually opposites to express the same idea.
