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!

For a number of years, Teach All Nations has been assisting the community development ministry of James Korha, one of Delron’s former students, in the African nation of Liberia. In addition to pastors’ and leaders’ conferences and distribution of discipleship materials, we have financially assisted with the ongoing project of building a clinic and elementary school in a remote area where the villagers have to travel hours over unpaved roads to get medical treatment and the children have to walk miles along a dangerous path beside a river to attend classes at the nearest school. Our latest project was to fund the purchase of a reliable truck for James and his staff so they can safely make the journey from Monrovia to the project site. However, a sudden turn of events intervened.
Billie, James’ wife, was diagnosed with a brain tumor (a pituitary adenoma) and urgently needed neurosurgery. Unfortunately, no hospital in the country is equipped for this kind of surgery, necessitating that she would have to travel to Kenya for the operation. Although Billie is a medical doctor serving at ELWA (Eternal Love Winning Africa), a Christian-based hospital, her salary is on a third-world standard, which barely covers her living expenses without savings for such emergency expenses.

Once you have decided which Bible you are going to study and made the determination in your heart that you are going to be the plot of the fertile soil that Jesus referred to as becoming productive when it received the Word of God, the first step to getting some “umph” out of your time with the Word of God is to consider how to actually understand what you are reading.
In the eighth chapter of Acts, we find the story of Philip’s encounter with the treasurer for the queen of Ethiopia who was studying Isaiah’s prophecy concerning Jesus’ crucifixion. When the evangelist saw what he was reading, he questioned the gentleman, “Do you understand what you are reading?” His answer was simple, “How can I, except some man should guide me?” But before we take this passage and turn it into a dogma, we have to consider the various implications and possible ramifications of the incident. In this particular case, the eunuch had a good answer – in fact the perfect answer – because he happened to be talking to someone who was an honest man who was full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom (Acts 6:3) and who had been specifically sent to him by the Holy Spirit (Acts 8:29).
