Through TV programs and YouTube channels, Purelight Missions is rapidly expanding its impact.

“Where have you been, young man? We’re going to use you until you are tired of us!” enthused Pastor Chekerwa, one of the managers of Life Destiny TV, after listening to the live recording of our series on the 144,000. He expressed joy that now Bible prophecy is being made simple enough that even a child can understand it.
Since last December, Purelight has been recording series for both inreach and outreach purposes, burning them onto DVDs and selling them. The 144,000 series was conducted at our end-of-year Present Truth Lifestyle Conference with about 200 people in attendance.
“I liked your presentation on organic seeds very much,” commented Nametsagang from Botswana after watching our Health Wise talk show, streamed every Thursday on Life Destiny TV.
We had prayed to start a media ministry at Purelight, but we never pictured it coming about in this manner. It all started with recording some seminars through Melvee Productions, which has a YouTube channel reaching more than half a million viewers. Many love their Sabbath School series that discusses the lesson study guide, in which Purelight Missions sometimes participates. Our prophecy seminars are largely viewed, and we’ve started roundtable prophecy discussions looking at current events in light of Bible prophecy.
“We see in Purelight a resource center from which we can request content on Bible, health, and cooking classes,” said Dr. Charlotte Machewane, owner of the TV station, during our recording of the Unlocking Revelation series. “We’re so excited to have met you!” This outreach-oriented series, geared to present the Three Angels’ Messages through simplified Bible prophecy, will also be burned onto DVDs and distributed along with Last Generation magazines.
We praise the Lord for this platform He has provided for preaching the gospel! Our vision is to carry the Three Angels’ Messages to every country and household in Africa. We thought it would take us years to reach this goal, but media ministry will make it easier to fulfill our mission.
We’re still training missionaries who will go to these countries to do follow-up work. Unfortunately, many who want this training cannot afford the tuition fees ($3,500 a year). Please pray and see how God impresses you to help.
