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!

Monthly Mission Report January 2021
The Christmas service began with Feliz Navidad, but it wasn’t in Latin America – it was in Myanmar! Delron and Peggy had been invited to minister over ZOOM in the Christmas morning service hosted by the church that Teach All Nations works with in Yangon. COVID restrictions prohibited a public gathering, but the congregation joined in via internet across the city and even as far away as Malaysia. Opening with a Spanish song and followed by a sermon in English that had to be translated into Burmese, the ZOOM call made us realize that Walt Disney was right when he said, “It’s a small world after all.” In addition, Delron gave an even more international flavor when he likened the three gifts of the wise men to the three Greek words used for “life” in the New Testament – gold being the financial resources to sustain physical life (bios); frankincense being a perfume that, before the invention of deodorant, made personal interaction more pleasant and, therefore, promoted mental and emotional wellbeing (psuche); and myrrh being an embalming agent which spoke of Jesus’ death that made it possible for us to have spiritual life (zoe).

Also, no matter how much we try to adjust it, if the thermostat is faulty, we won’t get any results from the furnace. In the spiritual realm, we can have defective hearing, which will short-circuit the effectiveness of the Word of God. There seem to be several basic hearing problems that plague the human race. The first one is that we simply can’t hear from God because we don’t belong to Him. Jesus addressed the religious Jews of His day plainly, “He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.” (John 8:47) The second condition is spelled out in Hebrews 5:11 where the recipients of the letter were addressed as being dull of hearing, “Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing ye are dull of hearing.” I’m sure that all of us have sat through lengthy lectures and seemingly-unending phone calls until we reached the “saturation point” where words seemed to begin to flow in one ear and out the other. We may be able to afford putting our brains in neutral on a few such occasions, but not when it comes to hearing the Word of God. Jesus warned us to be careful about not only what we hear but also about the very way we hear, “Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he seemeth to have.” (Luke 8:18)
