Nakita Kolov, the Russian nightmare.

No, the devil's nightmare here. From its time to man up. Challenging men to step into their true manhood. Your chosen Truth Network Podcast is starting in just a few seconds. Enjoy it.

Share it. But most of all, thank you for listening to the Truth Podcast Network. This is the Truth Network. Kingdom Pursuits, where you hear from ordinary people instilled with an extraordinary passion. Together, we explore the stories of men and women who take what they love and let God turn their passion into Kingdom Pursuits. Now, live from the Truth Booth, your host, Robbie Dilmore. Well, we have an amazing, amazing group for you today on Kingdom Pursuits. I couldn't be more excited because I just have always loved that the theme of this show is, how does God take your passion and use it to build the kingdom?

And often I just have poster children for who that would be, and I actually have children today. As well as my good friend Michael Woolworth with the Bible League is back with us because we got a new campaign, right, Michael? Well, it's nice you're claiming me as a kid, Robbie. Yeah, yeah, it's great to hop into the Truth Booth today and talk about persecution. Robbie, Christians are suffering big time around the world, but they're doing amazing things in light of all of that suffering, and we get to be a part of it today. So joy to hop on with you and let your listeners know how they can be involved in the lives of these persecuted believers, but great to hear your voice, brother.

Oh, it's always, it's, you know, I love these stories that you're going to hear of how the Bible is impacting people's lives around the world, especially those in persecuted areas, and, you know, how we can get in on what God's doing there. I mean, that's what we're going to be talking about today, and you're going to have lots of opportunities to join in that adventure. But another adventure that we're going to talk about is True Girls, right?

True Girls is a really fascinating, I guess, all-around idea that's coming on in the area of North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, and all sorts of places. And we have Robin Meyers here with us, with True Girls. So welcome, Robin.

Good morning, Robbie. Thank you so much for having us. For those of us who are not familiar with True Girls, including me, although I see three of them sitting here, they're all true, every one of them. So what is True Girls? So True Girl is a phenomenal game changer of an event. It honestly is one of the most exciting and memorable concert style activities I've ever done with my girls. We went to Raleigh, North Carolina earlier this year, but True Girl, they come to our area, they bring their stage events, their singers. It's just a remarkable opportunity for moms and daughters to grow closer to one another in a fun, engaging way, and then closer to Jesus too. Right, right. And I remember how my mother—excuse me—how my wife would love to take her daughters to concerts, and that was a special time.

They bonded together, and this is meant for that very idea. And so not only do we have Robin, but we have our daughters Avery and Charlotte here with us, right? So let's start out with Charlotte. What do you think, Charlotte? Did you have a chance to go to the concert? Yes. Oh, I forgot that microphone doesn't work, so we're going to have to use your mom's mic.

Yes, I did have a fun time at the concert, and I loved all the singing and dancing, and how energetic the hosts were, and how everyone was just singing. And also, there's a rule, no boys allowed. It's just a girl thing. Well, now I feel bad. Did you like that rule too? Yes, sir. I loved it. It was so amazing. Everyone was so energetic, and it brings you to the concert, and it brings you and your mother closer together.

Isn't that awesome? Well, you might guess that since it's King of Pursuits, we've got to do Robbie's Riddle. So speaking of true— So Avery, I'm guessing you might even know the answer to this.

This is a dad joke, as you might guess. So have you ever thought about where are truths made? Where are truths? Since we're speaking of true, where are truths made?

If you've got to guess, Charlotte, by all means, jump in there. What do you think? I don't know. Ah, they're made in the fact-tery. You liked that, didn't you? All right, so I don't know if you knew this, but it's not true that air travel has become a circus. Did you know that?

Because circuses may feature the same level of animal cruelty, sadness, and clowns as air travel, but circuses actually start on time. There you go. Come on, now. That's funny.

Somebody could laugh. All right. You travel a lot. Oh, yeah. There you go. So how about this one?

You might like this. And I'm going to try you on this one, Michael. Who was Bruce Lee's cousin that always told the truth? Oh, boy.

I forget that one, Robbie. You knew it one time that it was his cousin honest, honestly. Good old honesty.

There you go. Speaking of true, I tried this one. I said to God, I said, is it true that a billion years is to you like a second? He said, oh, yes, Robbie, it's true. And I said, well, is it true that a billion dollars is like a penny to you, God? And he said, oh, yeah, that's true. And so I said, well, God could have a penny. And you know what he said? If you got a second. Come on, now.

That's pretty funny. All right. So you know, at the end of those shenanigans, I actually would have a riddle. And I do today. And this is a riddle for riddlers. OK, it's a Bible riddle.

But don't miss out. That is a riddle. And I do like puns. And so you're going to have to think through it. So the question is, where is true first lie in the Bible?

Oh, I do crack myself up. Where does true—where is the truth, the word true first lie in the Bible? Hmm. 866-348-7884 to call in and win if you know where true first lies in the Bible. 866-348-7884. And they can guess that. Rachel, tell them what they'll win.

Well, if they call in, they can win tickets to this year's Renaissance Festival. Yes, we have not one, not two, but what? Looks like eight. I think eight, yes. Eight tickets for the Renaissance Festival.

Thirty-two value, thirty-two dollar value each. And oh my goodness, you could take a whole group of people to the Renaissance Festival. You call us 866-348-7884 and tell us where is true first lie in the Bible. 866-348-7884. So Michael, since we last spoke, what have you seen? What have you heard?

I'm dying to hear one of these stories. Well, Robbie, your listeners have been incredibly kind to Bible League. Robbie, you've been a great friend of ours.

We appreciate that. Let me set the stage for what we're dealing with right now. This is the top issue facing the global church. I know we're going to get a break here in a couple of minutes, but let me give you a couple of statistics from those that keep a finger on the pulse of religious persecution. Pew Research will tell us that if you combine the Christian persecution that's happened in the 20th century and so far in the 21st century, it far outweighs the entire previous 19th century. That tells you that we are dealing with a very serious topic. Pew will tell us there's no group that's persecuted more than religious than the Christians.

And then thirdly, Robbie, listen to this. Every five minutes outside of the U.S., the way the numbers work, is that every five minutes a Christian is martyred. By the time we're wrapped up today, within this hour, that means that a dozen Christians will be martyred outside the U.S. Now, I'm not saying that death is associated with every case of persecution, but I can tell you at Bible League, now in our 84th year of ministry, we know Christians by name, men, women, children, who are singled out, targeted, monitored, they've been threatened with death, they've been shunned by family, they've been beaten, jailed, some have been martyred, simply for believing Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. And so we want to come alongside them today and send them exactly what they're praying for that's not an end to their suffering. Robbie, as I travel the world on behalf of Bible League, we have friends that fund those trips. I can tell you, as I sit with these heroes of the faith, they never ask me, get on Truth Network and pray for, you know, ask the listeners to pray for an abrupt end to our suffering, because they know God's working through.

What they pray for is an increased love for God, to obey Him in all matters, to see those around them, even those that persecute them, not as the enemy, but as the mission builder. Then they pray for Bibles, Robbie, because that's what Christians need when you're persecuted, to be able to endure, to persevere, and you can do that when you can open up God's precious Word, to be reminded of His precious promises. And Robbie, your listeners can do that today at $5 a Bible. We've said, can we do it for 3500 persecuted believers? That's why we're here today doing this.

Absolutely. And of course, you can go to Truth Network and there's the Bible League logo right there. You can click on that or go to Kingdom Pursuits, by the way, at Kingdom Pursuits have both true girls, if you want to find out about that. And of course, Bible League, if you want to donate to these Bibles, what an opportunity it is to partner with God. I'm sure the Bibles changed your life. I know what it's done for mine.

Can you imagine doing that for somebody who right now is under percussion? You're listening to the Truth Network and truthnetwork.com. Welcome back to Kingdom Pursuits, where we hear how God takes your passion and uses it to build the kingdom. And we have, wow, I did not realize that we actually have the two daughters are actually triplets. I've never known triplets in my entire life. And so we have both Charlotte and Avery and their little brother.

So that was the threesome that came all the same time. And so, wow, that's very cool. They're with true girls and here in the Triad area, but there was also true girls in Raleigh because that's where you went for the event, right? Correct, Raleigh. We went to the April Raleigh event that was brought and hosted by a church there. True Girl is a national organization that is on mission to bring the truth of God's word into the hearts of girls all over the nation.

Every girl needs to know their worth and their value and they're purposely and wonderfully made in spite of what the world tries to convince them of otherwise. So I got to know, you know, as a mother of triplets, you know, that's interesting. It's a party every day. It is a party every single day. We're 11 years in, they just turned 11 years old a few weeks ago. And so do you have the same birthday as your sister? Yes, sometimes it gets a little annoying because then our birthday parties like clash together and I have separate friends.

But if nobody's gotten a concussion, bled or gotten at least one bruise in a day, it's been a good day. And so you're the oldest? Yes, I'm the oldest out of all three, even though I'm the shortest, but that's okay. What a neat thing and what a camaraderie, right? Are they all still close?

They are close, but they are. You know, when you're a mother of triplets, it gave a whole new meaning to me understanding when God says you are uniquely and wonderfully made. They each have similarities, but they are so uniquely different and have different skills, strengths, and they're growing into all that God's made them to be. It's really fascinating to see and have a front row view to as they're growing and becoming their best selves. Right.

And so obviously, True Girls gives you an idea to take the two girls, right, to these concerts that you're talking about while your husband obviously has an opportunity with your son. What's his name? Brendan. Brendan. His name is Brendan. It's spelled B-R-E-N-D-E-N. It's like a very unusual name. It is. It's Brendan.

It's kind of like Ben only with an R in there. That's very cool. So moving back to the Bible League, Michael, share with us a little bit of what you're seeing now and actually in the countries that you're visiting. Let me tell you about a girl I will never forget meeting Robbie. I was in the Middle East.

I met 19-year-old Aria. She would define herself as a devout Muslim. She said, Michael, I read my Quran. I said my prayers five times a day. And of course, as I moved about that region, I mean, you'd see people drop face mecca.

You could tell they were very devout in their faith. And that's what defined 19-year-old Aria. Here's her story. She said, none of that stuff that I did brought any type of peace. She said, I couldn't find anywhere in the Quran where Allah loves me. And so when a Christian friend invited her to a Christian Bible study, and this is somebody that came to saving faith through Bible League's ministry many years ago, Robbie, she had a Bible, so she was able to invite this young gal, Aria, to come learn about Jesus. About eight to 12 weeks into that Bible study, Aria would realize, well, I'm a sinner.

There's no other name under heaven by which to be saved except that of Jesus. Now listen, she went home. She still lived with her parents.

She was filled with joy. But I can tell you, her father, who was radicalized, was not happy about her coming to Jesus. He beat her nearly to death.

I know that's somewhat graphic. And he called the local authorities to report her as an infidel. He was not happy about this. Those authorities took her away to a remote cell. It was there that they got rough with her. They beat her, they violated her, tortured her even, and finally let her go after a couple of weeks with very little food, water, and outside communication. Told her to never speak of Jesus.

And I can tell you, that woman did not grow bitter at 19 years of age. She grew bold with others in her evangelical church just outside of Cairo, Egypt. I remember, Robbie, very distinctly, this girl worked on an olive and pomegranate farm, had such a sweet spirit, I mean, after all that she had been through. And I said, Aria, how can I pray for you? She said, Michael, pray that I would love God more and more, that I would love His Word.

I would want to obey Him in every situation. She said, even through my suffering, I know that points people to Christ. I want that to be a witness. And she said, pray that I'll see those around me, not as the enemy, but as the mission field. And then she was quick to say, we need Bibles. This is a place where Christians have absolutely no access to an Arabic language Bible. And so I assured her in the moment, I'm telling you, tears in my eyes, because I have a daughter that age. And I said, Aria, those Bibles you need, they're coming.

They're absolutely coming. Robbie, God's doing amazing things around the world. He does it even through severe suffering. That's why we can't be quick to pray away Christians that are even going through persecution in a place like the Middle East. We want to step into their stories instead, because we know more stories like this can come about. God's doing amazing things through women and girls, and we get to be a part of it today at only $5 a Bible. Right. And again, you can take part in that by going to KingdomPursuits.com. There you can see BibleEagle, or you can see True Girls, if you're interested in that.

But also, of course, the Truth Network. But when you think about it, or what I think about, I was thinking about it, Michael, that when those people are going through this unbelievable torture, right? And just like Paul and Silas were, they were beaten, left for dead, put in stocks. But based on their faith, based on them being able to be familiar with God's Word, they were able to sing in the middle of their persecution, which led all the other people in the prison, right, to, what does this person have that I don't have? Why is he able to sing when, you know, that's about the worst thing that anybody would think about in the middle of the night, with all this torture and horror going on. You could hear the joy, and it's often just like it sounds like in your friend, you can see the joy in their eyes.

And wonder, how did that happen? And by the way, if you were in the studio with me right now, if you could see Charlotte and Avery, you would see the joy that's in their eyes. I mean, oh my goodness. I hate I don't get to meet Brendan, although I'll never forget how to spell his name, thanks to you, Charlotte. But I will tell you that I can, oh, go ahead, Brendan. I mean, Charlotte, tell us what's on your mind. Go ahead. You were grabbing the microphone like you wanted to say something, so say it. Yeah. I wanted to say that True Girl is like a game changer, and so grab your favorite cozy onesie and a bag of popcorn.

It's time for the ultimate girls' night out. That's just what you wanted to say. That's pretty good. You were training well, Mom.

They definitely have their own energy and personalities. And that is beautiful. Absolutely beautiful.

How about you, Avery? Yes. Was it a game changer? Yes, it was. It was so amazing, and all the girls were so excited, and there was a lot of moms and daughters and cozy PJs. It was just awesome.

Really? You were in your pajamas? Yes. You and your mom can have matching PJs, and it's amazing. It's the ultimate pajama party. But moms out there, no, you don't have to stay up all night.

There is a cutoff at around 830, so you'll get to sleep in your own bed and be comfortable, but you'll have a whole lot of fun beforehand. Yeah, yeah. And so, obviously, your daughters have been talking a lot about it since, right?

They have. We went in April, and just... The car ride is always interesting before and after school times, or we all have different baseball, gymnastics, dance activities, church activities we're running to. And just randomly, these truths will pop up when you least expect it, and even parts that I missed at True Girl. And at the event, it's just an amazing opportunity. The truths that are spoken into moms' hearts, too, that never...

They never knew their real worth into their 30s and 40s. And it's amazing to see what God is doing in the hearts of moms, so that they can better shepherd their daughters' hearts in knowing that you have incredible worth, and there's purpose in how God made you exactly the way you are, that you don't have to change and conform to unattainable standards that are being presented today to girls. But it's in a fun and dynamic way with singing. You were talking about singing and... Dancing, of course. And dancing. And what a freedom we have in the US as I'm listening to the persecution of girls around the world.

But one thing we do know is that girls... Getting to the heart of girls is the heart of future families, and that can have generational impact all around the world. So I'm really excited to hear what's going on through the ministry that's being done to get Bibles and put truth into the hands of girls and women all over the world, because that really does change the world for good. Darrell Bock Yeah, Bible League, again, is there at TruthNetwork.com. It's at KingdomPursuits.com as well.

You can click on either of those links. Five dollars puts a Bible in somebody's hands, and when you think about those truths that are available, that change everything. They just do, right, Michael?

Michael McPhee They really do. I mean, on the other side of the break, I'd love to tell you about another mother and her daughters. This woman is widowed.

Her husband was killed by ISIS. But it's a hope-filled story. And again, we can step into their stories. Five dollars a Bible. You've got the websites, Robby, you've been mentioning, and then also the number if you want to just pick up the phone. 800-YES-WORD. 800-YES-WORD. 800-937-9673. That's 800-YES-WORD. But I'd love to tell you the story on the other side of the break.

Darrell Bock Awesome, awesome. We'll be right back. And if you happen to know, you know, my question, where is true first lie in the Bible? We have all those Renaissance tickets you're missing out on.

And it's not that hard, really. It's a riddle. Where does truth first lie in the Bible? 866-348-7884. We'll be back with so much more. Don't forget, 1-800. You're listening to the Truth Network and truthnetwork.com.

Darrell Bock Welcome back to Kingdom Pursuits, where we hear how God takes your passion and uses it to build the kingdom. And hopefully we even hear the 1-800 number. I told you not to forget that I forgot, so I couldn't finish my sentence. That's embarrassing, Michael, but I didn't forget it anymore.

I looked it up. It's 1-800-YES-WORD, is what Michael said several times that I forgot. But the real numbers, which are important, because I'm not digitally gifted. I can't dial like that. It's 1-800-937-9673. So if you'd like to call in your donation, we would love for you to do that. 800-937-9673. And I know it's confusing, because that number is different than the Truth Network. If you've got an answer to my riddle, that's 866-348-7884.

If you're trying to tell us where truth first lies in the Bible and you want to get an opportunity to win those tickets. And so when we left our hero, Michael, you were going to tell us the story about this family. Oh, my goodness.

You know, the things that we really can't think about. Michael McRae Yeah, great to be on with you. You've been a good friend of Bible League. We've enjoyed our times together over the years. Truth listeners, you've been incredibly kind to those that we're called to serve.

Our 84th year of ministry. Before I share that story, I want to say, Rob, enjoy to be on with you and your daughters. I think it was Avery who said in your household, bustling with lots of energy and activity.

You know, if no one gets a concussion, there's no broken bone. It's a pretty good day, isn't it? So I love that. Yeah. Yeah. I'm with you. I've got twin grandkids.

So I know exactly what you're talking about, ladies. So let me share a verse before I share this story of Hebrews 11. You I think you all know this. This talks about the heroes of the faith that have really paid a tremendous price for following the Lord. They say it says here, some were tortured, whipped, scorned in prison, stoned, sewn in half, killed with the sword. These are the heroes of the faith of whom the world was not worthy. That's what the writer of Hebrews says about those that are persecuted. We know what our Lord went through, the disciples. We know the story of Jim Elliott, Nate Sane, being massacred by the Auke Indians in Ecuador. If you appreciate your English Bible, you may know it was this year, I should say this week, 1536, when the man that translated that for us, William Tyndale, was persecuted.

He simply wanted English speakers to be able to read for themselves that just shall live by faith. Let me tell you about a woman by the name of Nora in the Middle East. I won't identify the country, but I can tell you one day radicals showed up, they burned down her house. Everything she had was lost in that fire. The fire almost killed her and her four daughters. She has four daughters, the youngest of which about four years of age, maimed for life, with burns all over her body. It's a very tragic story. Her husband was actually killed by ISIS. This is a terrorist cell that has a presence in that part of the world. That's her story, one of tragedy and loss.

And yet this woman, as I said about the young lady earlier, did not grow bitter through all of this. She's grown bold, and she's gone on to lead almost 100 Arabic-speaking women to faith in Christ. And people ask me, Michael, how does Bibles get the Bible to people all over the world, including places like the Middle East? Well, gone are the days when you'd print a Bible here in the U.S., stick it on a ship and pray that it gets there in about six months.

We work with printers around the world where it's safe to print. And when we meet goals like this one, to put the Bible into the hands and hearts of 3,500 persecuted believers, we can say, roll the presses. We need Bibles in the Middle East. We need 100 right now with this story associated with Nora. Nora's crime, by the way, two things. Number one, she's a born-again believer in a place where many people don't follow Christianity. It's not welcome where she lives. But secondly, she was found to be educating her daughters beyond the age of eight. In that system, in that part of the world, that is a very serious violation.

But that was her crime. But she has gone on to lead, again, about 100 Arabic-speaking women, many of these with young boys, girls, there in the Middle East. Listen, they cherish our prayers on their behalf today. They often hear, you don't matter, we don't want you here. But every gift that's made today, Robbie, says what? Very loudly and clearly, we're with you, we're for you, we're half a world away, but we want to step into their stories and send them exactly what they're praying for, and that is the Word of God.

I love what you said. I was thinking about it. You know, I guess I'm one of the blessed people that have given to Bible League over the years. And, you know, I got to admit, wow, I never thought about really praying for where that Bible was going. And the person's hands that it went to are the ones that, you know, however, it ended up that that gift goes someplace where God wants it to be. Somebody really will bear much fruit as a result of it. I love the idea of praying along with the idea of the gift, you know, that's involved.

And so, you know, I'm so amazed at all the stuff that God is doing around the world. And so I was looking at this True Girl Pajama Party tour and having two daughters myself that are quite a bit older. In fact, I have a granddaughter that's older than Charlotte and Avery. But nonetheless, it mentions that there's a fashion show.

And I got to think, you know, that beauty is a gigantic subject throughout the Bible that really is such a wonderful thing that girls, you know, can reflect better than anybody. And so tell me about the fashion show, Avery. What was that like? Well, it's pretty good. There's a Truth or Bear, and you get to have slippers and do fun PJs with your mom, and you can invite your friends. And the fashion show is amazing. You ask questions, and then it's just amazing. I understand.

And Charlotte, how about you? What would you say about the fashion show? The Truth or Bear fashion show? Actually, a few people, my mom's included, they get to pick a handful of girls, around five or six, and then they have all these different sizes, like 10-12 size, and you have to fit in that costume in that size.

And it was just really cool. It's called the Truth or Bear fashion show, and I'm hoping my mom will, I'll have, like she said she'll let me do it, but I'm hoping I'll fit in the sizes, because then you just get to like, it's like, exactly like a fashion show with just like an outfit on. And so when's the next event that you guys get to go to, Robin? It's October the 23rd from 630 to 9pm.

And moms, I know you're thinking that's a school night, but I'm going to promise you, this is a not to miss event that will seed in your daughter's heart for years to come that they will never forget. The fashion show really addresses issues around, you know, you don't have to show yourself and present yourself in a way that's dishonoring, but instead enhance, you know, in a lovely way, you can have your own personality and use clothing to actually uplift and enhance the inner beauty that God's already put there. Yeah, and the Song of Solomon in the very first chapter, right, after he talks about her beauty, he says, you know, your cheeks are comely with rose and your neck with chains. He says, I will make you borders of gold and studs of silver, meaning that, you know, that beauty was meant to be adorned, right? And that God put it there to show it off, because what's it truly reflecting is him, right? But like you said, it's done in a way that reflects God, not creates problems, right?

Yes, absolutely. And teaching girls that, you know, they have worth and value, and it's not based on the things they're seeing on social media or movies, television, or what, you know, kids may be doing differently at school, that you can enhance your own image of God carefully in a way, but in a fun way. And it's fun, and it's exciting. The girls were very engaged.

All the little girls were jumping around. This is for girls. We say the tween age, like seven-ish years, because our girls younger today are getting messages very, very early.

Seven years to around about seventh grade is the right kind of fit for this type of thing. So Avery's loaded for Barrow. She's ready. Go ahead, Avery. What do you got?

Some items you can get, you can get a shirt, you can get necklaces, and you can get this headband, and lots of fun things. October 23rd at Pinedale, right? At Pinedale Christian Church. You can go to pinedale.church on the web. It's here in Winston-Salem, yeah. Pinedale. In Winston-Salem, yes.

People drive for a couple hours to come to these events, and it's very well worth it. How wonderful. So when we come back, we've got one more segment with our friend Michael Woolworth with Bible League.

I'm going to give you that number, 1-800-YES-WORD. I remembered this time. Welcome back to Kingdom Pursuits, where we hear how God takes your passion and uses it to build the kingdom. And today, how wonderfully we have Michael Woolworth with Bible League as well as Robin Myers and Avery and Charlotte Myers with True Girls of the Triad, which, again, their event is happening. We've been talking about that all throughout the show. It's happening October 23rd at Pinedale Christian Church here in Winston-Salem, and it will be well worth the adventure.

Again, that information is all up at KingdomPursuits.com as well as the Bible League links and the phone number, and all the links for Bible League are all there. So Michael, this is a shorter segment, but have you got something you want to make sure you got said today here in this last segment? Yeah, people may wonder, okay, is the Bible the most important thing a persecuted believer needs? I mean, can we give them airfare out of where they're at?

God has them planted there. That's not really an option, but when you have a Bible, you can open it to passages like Romans 8, where Paul writes, listen, the sufferings of this present time, they're not worthy to be compared with the glory to come. Real quick story, Robbie. When I was in the Southeast Asia, the country of Thailand, I met 21-year-old Nina. The story was this. She was a Buddhist. Her family for generations followed Buddhism.

She came to saving faith in Christ. When that happened, her family said, you've disgraced us. We want nothing to do with you. Don't come over for lunch anymore.

There's no getting together for special occasions. As she told us that story, she didn't just merely cry. She wept, wept bitterly because she wanted a relationship with her family, but she was squarely focused on following Jesus. She's one of these who is among the 300 million Christians right now around the world who are suffering, again, simply because they follow Jesus. But what you know, fast forward a little bit, after all that family rejection, she knows how to share Christ. She's lived out her faith. Thirty family members have come to place their faith in Jesus Christ. So again, it's so tempting, Robbie and Robin and Avery and Charlotte, to pray away all this suffering. But you know what? God's choosing to work through it. And He said, you know what? Jesus said, if I be lifted up, I'll draw the nations to myself.

He's doing that in some of the most difficult parts of the world. And so would you pray for people like, we've mentioned Aria, Nora, and just in the past couple of minutes, Nina. They need your prayers, but you can step into their story at $5 a Bible. Truth Network and Bible League have said, you know, by the end of October, let's bless 3500 Bible-less persecuted believers at only $5 a Bible. And Robbie, I just found out that Friends of Bible League will match every single gift at $5 a Bible. You've been doing such a great job of giving our number, 800 YES WORD, 800 YES WORD.

You can go to truthnetwork.com. It's been a joy to be on with you at this hour. Robbie, you've been a great friend, and Avery and Charlotte and Robin appreciate all your enthusiasm that we've heard today.

Darrell Bock So fun. Again, the 1-800 number is 800-937-9673 for the not so digitally gifted like me. So, Robin, was there something you wanted to make sure you got said today that we haven't said so far?

Robin Wright Oh, yes. First of all, just thank you for having us here. I mean, it has truly blessed my spirit to know of the work that Bible League is doing. And honestly, I stopped at the coffee shop on the way here and the prices have gone up.

It was right around $5. I think we could forego some coffees and put Bibles in the hands of people all around the world. So I would encourage your listeners to do that. We also, as Charlotte said earlier, I think we thought Avery said, Charlotte said that, you know, it's a good day if there's been no injury in the Myers household.

So we're having a really great day today here. There is a special promotion code going on right now for your listeners. It's WinstonSalem2for30. If they go to the trugirl.com website or go to pondell.church or mytrugirl.com and use that promo code to get their tickets before they sell out, WinstonSalem2for30.

Yes, WinstonSalem2for30. That's a special promo code that'll save them $10 to $12 depending on their seating, which they could then give back to Bible League. And that would be a huge blessing. And there's going to be ripple effects from this event in the Triad. I hope every youth pastor would get this word out. Please contact us at pondell.church.

Sean Earhart is the youth minister there that's spearheading this event. And we have a team of us that are distributing posters, postcards, get into the hands of girls they can take to their schools, their friends, their neighbors. We also have a digital download package. We've already done all the work and have social media images, screenslot images that are sized.

And so you don't have to do any of that. And so Charlotte, we know that you've got one last word for it. And I wish everybody could see Charlotte's earrings and her shirt.

Like she is true girl now, aren't you? Yes. So what would you want our listeners to know? They haven't heard yet today. Go ahead. It's all right. They're whispering.

Go ahead. I would like them to know it's like an awesome experience to be there. And it's like an event like you don't want to miss at all. So grab some popcorn and a onesie and head over to Pinedale on October 23rd. And it's from 6.30 to 9 o'clock PM. So it's not long and it's on a school night, but it's an event you don't want to miss. Bye guys. Avery, I read it. Yes. That girls shouldn't believe lies that other kids tell them.

They should believe God's word. Oh, wow. That's wonderful. Thank you all so very, very much. You've been such a blessing to have you on today.

I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. Everybody listening. Thank you for listening and thank you for giving again to 1-800-Yes-Word.

If you're going to call or just go to kingdompursuits.com for all that information. Now stay tuned because, oh my goodness, you've got so much truth coming at you on the Truth Network. Encouraging prayers followed by masculine journey starts here now at 12 o'clock and then it's time to man up with Nikita Kolov. All coming at you on the Truth Network. Bye-bye. Thank you. Bye. This is the Truth Network.
