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 July 2019
When Teach All Nations was invited back to the Democratic Republic of the Congo to hold our third pastors’ and leaders’ conference in the city of Bukavu, Delron asked Peggy to come with him and use the trip as an opportunity to travel with Redeeming Love Ministry’s director Julie Mapatano to visit a humanitarian project that we help support in the village of Luwindja – feeding over two hundred fifty children each day. Prior to initiating the project, the children would often faint in the classroom from lack of nourishment. Peggy said that the children were filled with overflowing joy even though they were given only a plastic mug of porridge! Since Julie started this once-a-day feeding, the students are visibly healthier and their teachers say that they were doing so much better in their studies. Looking into the faces of these little children, Peggy was reminded of Matthew 25 – “I was hungry, and you fed me” – and realized that it was happening right before her eyes

Until David took the city of Jerusalem, it had never been captured. When Joshua came into the Promised Land, he defeated the king of Jerusalem, but the city itself was never taken. (Joshua 10:23-24, 15:63) The Jebusites boasted that Jerusalem was so secure that its guards were the blind and the lame men. (II Samuel 5:6) Its natural position made it virtually invincible; therefore, it was unnecessary to position the able-bodied soldiers there. These strong warriors were used elsewhere while the rejects defended the city. The city actually “defended itself” since it was built on the top of high cliffs with deep ravines surrounding it. When an attack would come, all these handicapped soldiers had to do was to simply push boulders over the edge of the cliff upon the approaching forces — they did not need to be marksmen or skilled warriors.
