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!

Director of the ministry Teach All Nations works within the Democratic Republic of the Congo
Although I had been working in the Democratic Republic of the Congo for many years, my work was limited mostly to caring for the physical needs of the orphans and widows. Yet, it was my dream and prayer to do more spiritual ministry through teaching the Word of God to the people and equipping the pastors to become true spiritual leaders in the community through preaching the true gospel of our Lord. This dream finally came true in July, 2017, when Teach All Nations partnered with Redeeming Love Ministries to host a leadership conference for about six hundred pastors. As I sat in the meetings and watched the pastors drink in the teaching, I caught a glimpse of a vision of a small dawn of light rising in a very dark place; my prayer for the Congo was being answered as many lives were being changed during that first conference because the leaders began to understand who they really are in Christ – a message that they could then share with their congregations.
Monthly Meditation June 2021
The lessons in this series may be a bit painful at first because they may force you to challenge some of the ideas and “truths” that you presently hold dear. Let me encourage you to enter this study with an open mind – and, more importantly – an open heart so that God can help you to “unlearn” things that can keep you from the real value that God wants to add to your life through your encounter with His Word. It is my desire that you will discover simple – yet, powerful – approaches to your Bible study that will help you to remove the preconceived ideas, biases, cultural mindsets, and secular worldviews that can hinder you from hearing what the Holy Spirit wants to speak to you through the Scripture.
One of the first things that we must overcome is the tendency to believe that anything and everything that we read in the Bible is a “word from God.” Yes, everything in the Bible is the Word of God; however, it may not be a specific message for you. An old story about the man who wanted to find God’s direction for his life can illustrate this point. He picked up his Bible and opened it at random. He read the first passage that his eyes fell upon, Judas went out and hanged himself. Taken aback by that directive, he quickly flipped to another arbitrary passage that turned out to say, Go ye and do likewise.
