Her Calls Would Not Go Through

September 17, 2015

Today we received a fascinating phone call. A Spanish lady from Grants Pass, OR called us to give us a prayer request, but as we talked with her we realized there was much more to her story.

She told us that for the past year she has been watching Better Life’s main English channel, but recently a man came to her Spanish Sunday keeping church and stood up front of the congregation and said that everyone there needed to be watching a new Spanish channel called, Vida Mejor TV. This lady was in the audience and after church she went home and found the new channel! She had since been enjoying watching the Bible teachings in her native language and she told us that she especially appreciates how much the people on Vida Mejor TV prayed. In fact, that was the reason she called with her prayer request.

But here’s the interesting part. She had tried to call us before, but every time she dialed our number her phone call was somehow diverted to her daughter’s phone. And today when she tried calling us again, her call got diverted to her church. But she was determined that she would get through, so she kept trying.

Finally, her call went through! Here in the office we answered the phone and then put her on hold so we could find someone to talk to her in Spanish. While on hold, her call was mysteriously disconnected. Moments later she called back and the same thing happened again. This went on about 4 or 5 times! Meanwhile, here in the office we didn’t know what was going on, but we prayed that God would have her call back so we could find out what she needed. It was then that she was finally able to get through without being cut off! Praise the Lord!

As we heard her story we told her that there was a local Adventist Spanish group in town that met once a month, and that it was scheduled to meet this next Saturday! We invited her to attend and she accepted!

But that’s not all. Today, one of the local Grants Pass Spanish church members, who had been going door to door sharing about Better Life’s new channel, prayed that God would have just one person from Grants Pass call the station today as a sign that she was to continue her door to door work. When she heard about this lady’s phone call she cried out, with tears streaming down her cheeks, “Praise God! That's our God! Praise the Lord forever!!" What’s more, this Sabbath she will be bringing this lady to the service herself!

Please pray for this developing situation.
 


"You Will Be My Church Now!"

September 17, 2015

Yesterday, we got a call from a Spanish lady in Santa Rosa, CA who had just discovered our brand new Vida Mejor TV channel. She told us that just an hour before she had been praying to God asking Him to show her which church she should join. Shortly after that, her grandchildren stumbled upon Vida Mejor TV, where a children’s program was on the air at the time. This lady saw it and immediately fell in love with the show and called us to ask for a copy of the song she had just heard. She told us that we were an answer to her prayer and she added, “You will be my church now!”

We talked to her again today and she exclaimed, “I love your channel!” and also said she had fallen in love with two of the pastors she had been watching on Vida Mejor TV. “Don’t worry” she said, “I don’t mean anything bad by that, I’m an old woman and I just enjoy listening to them.”

Praise the Lord people are very quickly discovering Better Life's new Spanish channel!
 


"I Need to Find a Church"

September 8th, 2015

Last Sabbath morning we got a voicemail from a man who spoke Spanish. He said he needed to talk to us about finding a local church to attend and he wanted us to call him back right away. When we got a hold of him we were excited to find out that he was calling from Santa Rosa, just a few miles north of San Francisco.

This man said that he had recently given up cable and instead just began watching over-the-air TV broadcasts. At that time he was disappointed to discover only one Spanish speaking channel and it was just news. But then he said that just recently he was flipping channels again when he happily discovered a SECOND channel. It was Better Life’s new Spanish channel- Vida Mejor TV! He said he liked it and that he had been watching it a lot!

This past Sabbath one of the programs he was watching featured a man who was urging viewers to find and attend a local church, so that’s why he called us. We were very happy to give him the address of a local Spanish Adventist congregation, which providentially is pastored by someone that our staff knows! In addition, this Spanish church meets on Sabbath afternoon instead of in the morning which works out great for our caller, because he works Saturday mornings until noon. Isn’t it wonderful to see the Lord working so quickly through this brand new hispanic outreach?

 


Medford Man Loves "Vida Mejor TV"

September 3, 2015

We have another great phone call to report! We talked to a Spanish man from Medford, OR who told us that a while ago he had learned about a station called Better Life so he tuned his TV looking for it. He found us, but discovered that our main channel was in English so he wasn’t really understanding what was being said. So he flipped over to Better Life’s nature channel. He said he would keep the channel on all day long. THEN one day he turned on the TV and he discovered we had begun broadcasting Vida Mejor TV! He was so excited. He said he has already told his co-workers and they have begun watching it too! He also shared that he saw a great program on Vida Mejor TV the other night and he called and ordred a copy of it! Praise God, the new Spanish channel is off to a wonderful start!

 


"I Don't Think Anyone Likes Me..."

August 11, 2015

It was a very busy Friday morning at Better Life Broadcasting Network. It was August 7th, 2015 and we were on the verge of launching our brand new Spanish language channel called, Vida Mejor TV. Staff members had been busy the whole week trying to make sure everything would be in place so that the switch could be flipped and the new Spanish channel would begin broadcasting on 20 of our 27 transmitters, with more to come later.

"I Was Looking for Something Like, 'I Dream of Jeannie', but I Found You."

July 22, 2015

Last night a woman from Portland, Ore. left us a phone message. It was after midnight and she told us that she had been scanning the channels for something light to watch like, “I Dream of Jeannie.”  As she flipped through the stations she came upon Better Life which was playing the program “Celebrating Life in Recovery.” She was captivated by the frank and open discussion of dysfunctional families. She called to let us know that she had left the church nearly 30 years ago, but that this program was the first one in a long time that had connected her back to God. She went on to share her life story with us and asked us to call her back during regular business hours. Isn’t it wonderful how God can reach out to people 24 hours a day, even in the middle of the night? Praise the Lord!

 


The Voice Said, "They're Coming."

July 6, 2015
A gentleman called us this week and shared this amazing story.

As Monty worked in his yard it happened again. This time the disembodied voice seemed to be right next to him, and this time it said loudly, “Monty, they’re coming.” Monty thought, “I must be going crazy!”

"I Have Agoraphobia"

July 2, 2015

We recently got a call from a viewer in Klamath Falls, Oregon who wanted to add a loved one to our prayer list. But there's a deeper story to be told. You see, this viewer has agoraphobia and is afraid to leave her home, but she has been watching Better Life and now wants to reach out to establish a phone relationship with someone who will pray with and encourage her. She desires to reach the point where she can be comfortable enough to leave her home and attend an Adventist church in person. Please pray for this dear lady.

 


"Im Not a Member of Any Church"

June 30, 2015

Recently, Henry Martin was attending the Light Bearers Camp Meeting when a women asked him if she had seen him on Better Life. She told him that she wasn't the member of any church, but she has been watching the channel. Praise the Lord that we see continual evidences that the signal going out from Better Life's 25 transmitters is reaching hearts throughout the West Coast!

 


"I Never Would Have Checked Out Your Church."

May 11, 2015

We just got a phone call from a man in the Springfield/Eugene area who has been watching Better Life for a number of years. He said that after watching for about a year a and half he decided to attend his local Adventist church, which he has now attended for about 2 years. He loves what he is learning on Better Life and he said he would have never had checked out our church had it not been for the TV station being in his town. Praise the Lord!

 


A Neighborly Visit

April 6, 2015

Recently, our local Grants Pass Pastor, Tony Rodriguez, was out with his wife visiting the homes in their neighborhood, inviting people to attend an upcoming evangelistic series to be held at their church. At one home they met a man who asked what church they were representing. They told him they were from the local Adventist church. The man then shared that there were two channels that he loved to watch and one of them was Better Life! He said what he heard being taught over the air was solid, but when it came to the Sabbath, he didn’t agree with our stance. Even so, it was wonderful to run into another person who has chosen Better Life as one of their favorite channels! Pray that his man will take a closer look at the Sabbath, for it is quite a blessing.

 


A Sorrowful Father Contacts Better Life

April 1, 2015

Yesterday we got a call from a man who Portland, Ore who has been watching Better Life. He confided with us that he had been watching for the past year, just after his son committed suicide. He called because he wanted to know what we believed about Easter and he accepted an offer for pastoral contact. He said he enjoys Kenneth Cox and he knows that God is leading him to the truth. As he spoke of his son he started to cry and we told him that we would be praying for him. The One who has sorrowed knows how to comfort the sorrowful.

 


An Urgent Call From Reno

March 30, 2015

This past weekend a gentleman from Reno, NV left us multiple phone messages saying that he urgently needed to speak with someone. Monday morning we called him right back and he explained that he had been faithfully watching Better Life for the last 2 years and that he keeps it on at home 24/7. It has become his favorite channel and he has very much enjoyed the teaching of Kenneth Cox. He confided to us that he had a terminal illness and it was his GREAT desire to be baptized before he died. He said he believed all that was taught on Better Life and he was in tears as we told him we would put him in touch with a local Adventist church right away. He was overjoyed that his baptism could become a reality. We told him that all heaven would be rejoicing on that day and we wanted him to be sure to call us afterward so we could hear all about it. After we prayed for him he couldn’t stop thanking us, but really it’s all the Better Life supporters that make miracles like this possible. Praise the Lord!

 


A Nighttime Friend

January 23, 2015
We got a call this morning from a man in Springfield, OR who woke up very early this morning with a very heavy heart. He felt so bad, but he didn't know what to do. Then he was impressed to turn on the TV to Better Life and at that very moment one of our speakers turned to the camera and said the exact words he needed to hear from God. He was so excited he called us this morning to tell us how God had blessed him. You could hear the emotion in his voice. Praise God!

 


What Happens When You Die?

January 22, 2015
We have been getting some great phone calls from Reno, Nevada lately. This morning a lady called wanting to know if we believe in heaven and hell and asking about what happens when you die. While she was watching Better Life she saw that we were teaching something different than what she had heard in the past. We were able to send her some study materials that shared what the Bible taught about these important topics. Please pray for her.

 


You're a Beacon of Light

November 11, 2014
The good letters and phone calls continue to come in. We just got a note from a man who found Better Life while living in Oregon, although he now lives across the country. He wrote: "Better Life was instrumental in shedding so great a light upon me in revealing to me not only God’s written Word and remnant church but introducing me to other ministries like 3ABN and Secrets Unsealed. All of which I undoubtedly believe are crucial in fulfilling the Great Commission. Better Life is a beacon of light in a world not just full of sin, but a world lost in a sea of false doctrine and countless misconceptions of God’s Absolute Truth."

 


Supermax Prison Adds Better Life

October 20, 2014
We recently got a letter from an inmate at the Pelican Bay supermax prison. He told us that he used to watch Better Life on a TV set using a piece of wire as an antenna, but then he shared that the prison had recently altered its internal channel lineup for the prisoners and now Better Life was included! He and the other inmates could now watch Better Life with new convenience and clarity!

 


Making a Difference in Coos Bay, OR

    At first, Pastor Ken Williams didn’t realize the power of broadcast evangelism when he took on the role of Pastor at the Coos Bay Seventh-day Adventist Church. He had never worked at a church where the local airwaves were saturated with the Adventist message. But it didn’t take long for him to discover the tremendous benefits!

Better Life Lights the Way

    A hairdresser shared with us that she was talking with one her customers and the lady told her that one night when she got up she turned on her TV just so she’d have a little night light to see her way. She said Better Life flashed up on the screen and she became so engrossed with what the speaker was saying she had to sit and listen to him for a while before going back to sleep!
    Better Life’s programming definitely provides a light for your path, in more than one way!

Tony Morin

My name is Tony Morin. I'm 27 years old and live and work in Grants Pass OR, having grown up in California. My older brother and I had a loving family, and were raised with the same good morals that every parent tries to instill in their children, but Christ was never mentioned, and the Bible never read. We weren't Christians so far as I could see we were just "good people."...
