Dear Friends,

We are now down to the final quarter of 2013 and we have seen a lot of activity. EAEC is now in its 41st year and that is both a blessing and a liability. Many of the people who started with us were in their 40ís and 50ís and most of them have now gone home to be with the Lord. This in itself is a success since this is the essence of the Gospel message, but at the same time, we need replacements for those who have gone to be with the Lord.

When we started out in 1972, there was no Internet or electronic gadgets that people today find so hard to live without. I realized early on that in order to be effective as a ministry, we had to keep up with the ever changing technology. We started with IBM typewriters, mimeographs and crude copy machines. Our mailing list labels were typed on our typewriters and our bookkeeping was done by hand. We reached out with printed books and tracts, newsletters, radio programs in 1975, The Dove magazine in 1979, and recordings of sermons and Bible teachings on cassettes.

That old equipment has since been replaced with computers, CDís and DVDís; bookkeeping and mailing labels are both handled by a computer. We have gone through a number of copy machines over the years and the one we have today has the ability to produce small booklets, pamphlets and newsletters without much human involvement.

For the last four years, we have been webcasting our services on a weekly basis, reaching anyone on earth with an internet connection. Just recently I have been able to get back into the radio ministry via Internet radio, reaching the entire planet with live radio broadcasts that cost a fraction of what we used to pay for regular radio stations and covered a limited geographical area.


Ministers are partially exempt from regular income taxes but one thing that has not changed is the social security tax. With the breakup of Resurrection Life of Jesus Church in Carmichael and the increased cost to relocate our ministry base, there has been very little money to pay these taxes.

I made the past due rent and a repair bill on the old church facility a primary obligation and we were finally able to pay this debt at the end of August and for this I praise the Lord.

But we are still in need of your help. We have a steady group of friends who support us every month and they are the ones sustaining this ministry. I know some of you have been blessed by this ministry but you have never chosen to support us financially.

As we approach the end of the year, we need $12,000 above and beyond the regular giving to cover the taxes due at the end of the year. If 200 of our friends gave just $60, it would meet our need and allow us to pay the taxes in full.

I know thousands of you have been blessed by this ministry. Would you take a moment to ask God what He would like you to do concerning this matter?

You can make an online donation or by mailing it to EAEC, P.O. Box 166, Sheridan, CA 95681. Thank you for being as generous as you possibly can. Your financial investment will help us make an impact around the world as we labor to bring the Word of God to you.

I want to encourage you to press in towards the Lord despite what is happening in the world. God is on the throne, there is no crisis is heaven and He has a solution to every problem.

Yours in Christ,

John S. Torell
