SAMPLING OF RECENT CALLS FROM OUR VIEWERS
There are countless viewers that contact us for various reasons, asking for prayer, asking for more information about a program they just watched, requesting that a pastor please call, responding to offers of free literature, requesting the address of a church near them, and much much more. The following is a small sample of the wide variety of calls we get and relations that are developed through these calls...
Pastor of the Midvale Park Church informed us that 3 more Good News TV viewers have recently joined his church after completing Bible studies with him or his church leaders.
Many brand new viewers are finding our new Phoenix station and calling with very positive feedback.
Many long-time Phoenix viewers are also calling to thank us for the upgrades and improvements they are noticing on the new station, such as the much sharper image, the new children's channel and the new music and devotional channel.
Ken, a viewer in North Phoenix, describes his experience of watching Good News TV as a mourning process. At first he thought what he was hearing on the channel was simply not true since it was so different from what he had ever heard before. Then, when he realized it is all from the Bible, he became angry with the church he had grown up in for having not taught him and his family “lies” all of their lives. Now he is settling into the truth and although he is not yet a member he told someone at church yesterday that he fully considers himself an Adventist at heart, but just hasn’t finalized it yet. Ken has been attending various churches and has not yet settled on one yet. Perhaps there are GNTV viewers visiting your church and you just don’t realize it. Please warmly welcome all visitors and ask them how they learned of your church family. Regardless of where they are coming from, I hope they will find your church as their new church family.
Chuck, a Phoenix-area viewer, approached us last Sabbath at Glendale Church, introducing himself as the person who called in recently with a donation for the Phoenix TV station. He told us we had given him the address of the Glendale Church and another church, so he came and brought his roommate friend and his adult daughter with him! He said he really appreciated Pastor Venden’s message. Chuck’s roommate told us he is very loving and kind since he took him in when he was homeless and now brought him to church. We praise the Lord that He is reaching our viewers hearts and putting on their minds to reach out to others in need and come to church.
A viewer from Tucson called saying that she found us by flipping through the channels on her TV one day and stopping on Good News TV with the intent to watch "for just a few minutes". Now, she watches it "all the time" and it is her "Go-to channel" and her "Lifeline". When she heard that GNTV was fundraising to purchase its own station in Phoenix, she wanted to be part of the blessings. She called to ask the address in which to send a check. When the check came, we were astounded of the amount... $50,000! We also received an envelope in the mail from another viewer with $1 cash in it! We praise God for laying on the hearts of so many of our viewers and supporters to be part of this miracle of buying a Phoenix TV station!
Another viewer in Tucson tuned into the channel for the first time and immediately called for prayer, saying she felt all alone and didn’t want to live anymore. She was encouraged by God through our prayer with her. We connected her with the 24-hour Suicice Prevention hotline and we also called Pastor Simmons, who went to visit with and help her. She asked for the location of his church and started coming. Pastor Simmons reports that she has also joined the Women's Bible Study Group! While speaking with Pastor Simmons, he told us that another viewer and her husband were recently baptized, and that he is also studying with another GNTV viewer couple and their son and daughter in preparation for baptism!
A leader of the Wickenburg church informed us when we visited that he had been out of the Adventist Church for 15 years, and credits Good News TV with bringing him back. He is now a Sabbath School teacher and AV leader.
Tucson viewer, Pamela, called us, asking for free literature she saw promoted on Good News TV by an Adventist World Radio program, hosted by Cami Oetman. She told us that because she is deaf, she was using special equipment to communicate over the phone with us. She went on to say that she has been watching the channel a lot reading the scriptures presented frequently on the TV screen. She can tell that God is with our presenters, and she finds that the Holy Spirit is helping her to understand what is being taught! She called back again, asking for a church near her, and we were able to connect her with Tucson Fil-Am, where they have a ministry specifically to reach the hearing impaired.
Adam and Lynessa, 17 year old and 16 year old friends in Tucson, had desired to strengthen their relationship with God. Adam found GNTV, and the two of them started watching, learning a lot about Seventh-day Adventists and what the Bible teaches in many areas for the first time. They found the Midvale Park Church on their own about a year ago, started attending, and got involved with the Youth programs. Expressing interest in baptism, they started Bible studies with Pastor Gladstone, and were baptized. Many of their family members have been joining them for worship at Midvale Park for several months now.
One of our faithful supporters, Kate, excitedly shared with us today about her own recent experience. She is almost 80 years old, and donates monthly to Good News TV. She tells us she believes Good News TV is very effective at reaching Arizona for Jesus and helping finish the work. Since she can no longer go on a mission trip or go door-to-door herself, she wants to do all she can to help as many people as possible to be ready for Jesus soon return through her gifts to GNTV. Sometimes at the end of the month she has $25 or $50 left over from what she budgeted, which she transfers into her savings account. When she heard that Good News TV is stepping forward in faith to purchase their own TV station in Phoenix though, she prayed and committed to God that if anything is left over at the end of next month then she will donate it to the TV station project instead of putting it into savings. At the end of the month she was very surprised to find that she had a whopping $200 leftover to give toward the TV station purchase! She praised the Lord for this extra blessing, and so do we!
Tucson viewer, Dan, called telling us he found Good News TV over a year ago and started watching in earnest during the Pandemic because he didn't want to go out of the house much due to the virus. Throughout the conversation he kept thanking us for the channel, saying how much he has been blessed by what he is learning. He is now very convicted that the seventh-day Sabbath is important to the Lord, and so he has decided he wants to worship in one of our churches. He is considering coming this Sabbath. We praise the Lord, and ask that you please pray that God continue to guide and bless Dan and all of our viewers to understand and embrace the truths of God's Word!
During a visit to the Mesa Palms Church, the Good News TV team was honored to meet GNTV Phoenix viewer, Henry. Henry has watched Good News TV for years now. He supports the ministry financially, and calls regularly to share words of encouragement. On one occasion a few months ago he asked for the address of the Mesa Palms Church, which we shared with him but didn't realize the outcome until now. After the service Henry introduced himself, saying he recognized us from Good News TV. Our phone receptionist heard his voice and recognized it from the many phone chats they’ve had. He showed us his baptismal certificate, and we took a picture together.

He requested extra TV guides to give to people he meets daily, encouraging them to watch. He has connected with the Apache Junction Church, where he’s being nurtured by a former Assemblies of God pastor/evangelist, who joined the church, also through watching the channel. Thomas was baptized at Tempe Church on May 8.
Randy, a viewer in Apache Junction, feels that the Lord is leading him to become a Seventh-day Adventist. He supports the station and has visited an open church 45 minutes from his home as the church close to him is currently closed. He said he used to watch TBN but then found Good News TV, and tells us, "I'll stay glued to your channel from now on... I realized that I had one foot in the world and have decided to get both feet in the kingdom. The Seventh-day Adventists have put me on my path, and I feel great about it". Randy was recently baptized and joined the church.

His parents say they see a change in their son, and are now watching Good News TV too. Ray comes to prayer meeting when he can, but works on Sabbath. He has applied for another job to get Sabbaths off. Please pray for this.

We found she lives 2 miles from Grace in the Desert, and someone from the church has since contacted her! She told us she wants to become a Seventh-day Adventist.

Thomas (Apache Junction): Former Anglican priest, who was taught that the Seventh-day Adventist Church was a cult. He has been watching GNTV, and now knows that is not true. He is sharing information he has learned on the channel with others. He started donating monthly as the channel has been a blessing to him and is a comfort as he is not able physically to interface with other Christians and the programming really fills a need for him. He says, “I am so thankful for the channel”, sometimes not sleeping at night because he is interested in the programming so much that he stays up all night to watch. Thomas has health problems and doesn’t get out much, but has attended Apache Junction Church and recognized Pastor Ed Brothers there, from when they both attended a Pentecostal Church years ago.
