A Note From David Jeremiah

We never imagined the impact Why the Nativity? would have on the world, but the reach of this film was so great only God can get the credit!

In the following paragraphs you will see many numbers, and though numbers don’t tell the whole story, they give us a glimpse into who watched, shared, and aired this film. Every number represents a heart, soul, family, church, or community that was touched by Why the Nativity?.

I want to thank you for the part you played in supporting us through prayer and financial gifts to help make this film possible. The year 2022 was just the beginning of our evangelistic outreach, launching Why the Nativity? in both English and Spanish. We will continue to reach the world with the Gospel through this film every Christmas…for years and years to come.

Enjoy seeing how God worked through you and Turning Point this year. May we give Him the glory for the great things He has done!

Last Christmas

TURNING POINTS: Since the campaign for Why the Nativity? has begun, we have received 91,000 requests for Your Greatest Turning Point and believe this is just the tip of the iceberg for those who came to Jesus Christ this year through this evangelistic outreach. With more than 200,000 names coming to the ministry for the first time, we never imagined how great an impact Why the Nativity? would have on the world. The reach of this film has been so widespread we know that any glory goes only to God.

What Child is This?

2023 PLANS: This year Dr. Jeremiah and Turning Point will reach out further into the world to tell the Christmas story through Why the Nativity?. We are airing this Christmas presentation on all our television outlets, streaming it online, and finding added television avails, both domestically and abroad, so the world can be introduced to the Gospel through the story of Jesus’ birth.

We are ALSO thrilled to announce that Why the Nativity? has been translated into 4 new languages to be broadcast and streamed this Christmas.

We are thrilled about what God has done with this evangelistic outreach and what He will do through it for many years to come! We give God the glory and thank Him daily for those who faithfully support Turning Point through prayer and financial giving!
