We began this year with excitement to partner with the Maker of heaven and earth to see what He will do this year. God has been faithful, and we are grateful. As we look towards the last six weeks in 2019, I am reminded of the manifold blessings God has bestowed on us here at Oasis Focus Inc. As we count our blessings, we are counting each of you. Thank you for the privilege to serve you. This past weekend, we heard from so many of you about the Africa broadcast on ACBN TV Network. Oasis Connection still airs at the same time in Africa, which is 11:00PM GMT +1. With the fall back time change this month here in the USA, this created a change at what time you now watch the broadcast on Saturdays. Central time zone will now be at 4:00PM, Eastern time zone will now be 5:00PM and for Pacific time zone will be 2:00PM. For our friends and partners in Arizona and Hawaii, you are still watching at your normal time since there was no fall back time change in your area. The Supporting Educators broadcast that many of you missed last week is now a featured archive on our website for your viewing pleasure. Due to the size of the high definition broadcast, we can only feature a portion of the entire broadcast. When we spring forward in 2020, your broadcast time will be back to what it was before the time change. Broadcast times for TLN Network is also weekly on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Each network has the capability of live streaming the broadcasts at the scheduled times. This means if TLN or ACBN is not a local or cable channel in your area, you can still connect and watch from anywhere in the world on your devices. There are links on our TV Broadcast page for you to connect and watch.
We have been hard at work with new programs which are now showing on all networks. We are grateful for all the partnerships that make all the new programming possible. Some of you shared your thoughts on the new sets of the new program. We are thankful; our new production studio president and his staff at TCN have blessed us beyond words. And God continues to send us amazing guests that He has prepared to minister His love, grace and truth to equip and restore people through Jesus Christ. My wife and I love hearing from you, so continue to send us your feedback; how you are doing in your walk with God, how you are learning new things in the Bible and how we may serve you in prayer. It makes our heart glad to know you have your hearts focused on the Eternal God!
Many of you have asked how to be a part of the Africa conference coming up in two weeks. We are looking at that possibility for streaming some of the conference sessions. We covert your prayers for God’s people and all He has prepared for His people. Due to the conference, some of our weekly social posts might be delayed or suspended. However, we are making sure all aspects of our website are updated for your use.
My encouragement for you as we look towards closing out the year is a prayer from Romans 15:13, “Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." We receive requests from people asking how to have hope and remain with Christ during their difficult times. This scripture in Romans 15:13 was a prayer that Apostle Paul prayed for the believers in Rome to help them navigate a tough time in their culture. To lose hope is to lose meaning in life. The God of Hope is the eternal source that never runs dry. To believe in Him is to know the conduit of God’s Hope to the world-Jesus Christ our Savior. There is no other assurance for a meaningful life outside of Jesus Christ. He is the hope of the world. My beautiful wife says it so well, when she states that hope is a Person and His name is Jesus Christ. No matter what you may be going through, know that there is a way- His name is Jesus Christ. I am praying that your faith in God will not fail or be lost but grounded as God pours fresh joy and peace into your heart and life. This kind of hope is beyond the human type. It is a supernatural kind of hope that only the Holy Spirit gives. This is why it is my prayer for you as we close out 2019. What the Holy Spirit does is always matchless and limitless. May our Lord continue to grace you with His eternal hope as you believe. God bless you!
For The Cause of Christ,
Dr. Johnson Obamehinti
