Merry Christmas to our wonderful TAN family that has supported Teaching All Nations with your prayers and with your financial support every month. Praying and giving make a BIG difference for all of us here in the TAN office and on the road. The year 2017 has been a busy year, traveling throughout America and presenting the Teaching All Nations program to over 27 pastors and being in missions conferences in Illinois, Michigan, New York, and Indiana. Our travels have also taken us to Ohio, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Georgia, Kentucky, and Wisconsin. Praise the Lord for the 42 folks that we led to the Lord and for the safety as we traveled over thousands of miles. Your prayers have been an important part of what God has allowed us to do. As we close out this year of 2017, let us recall the Lord’s blessings and His accomplishments.
We have closed the year with our last trip to Tennessee and Georgia, visiting 9 churches and having 3 saved. We stopped for gas, and there was a young woman changing the trash cans. This young woman’s name was Brenda ChiChi, and she was from Kenya. She had come to the States eight months prior to further her education, but she said that her heart was still empty and searching for something. Brenda was so eager to receive Christ as her Saviour. She then said to us that the reason that she had come to the United States was to accept Jesus. The second person to receive Christ as his Saviour was a gas attendant at 4:30 in the morning in Georgia. I had gone in to buy coffee for the trip back home, and there stood Art, waiting to receive the Gospel. The last person to receive Christ on our trip was Lauren, who was a gift-shop hostess at Cracker Barrel. She was a Catholic and was hungry to receive Christ. Carolyn and I were also able to be with Bro. and Mrs. Frank Terpening at Trinity Baptist Church in Rome, Georgia, where I preached. They have a great church family and are doing a fantastic work for the Lord. They treated us so royally, giving us an unbelievable love offering. On our trip we also enjoyed a Sunday morning service with Bro. Sammy Allen at Concord Baptist Church in Georgia, where we stayed in their lovely prophet’s rooms. What a wonderful time of singing, praying, and hearing the Word of God preached Sunday morning! After the morning church service, the church voted to support TAN monthly and then gave us an amazing love offering. What a place to be spiritually refreshed!
The first 13-week Teaching Our People adult Sunday school series is now available. The 56-page Bible Study Guide is entitled “Increase My Faith” and is an excellent study that will enable Sunday school members to grow spiritually.

Thanks for praying for our daughters.
Merry Christmas to you all,
Ed & Carolyn Tutton
