4 Feature Dreaming Bigger Dreams A s we approach another anniversary, our hearts are filled with gratitude for the marvelous way in which the Lord has led and provided for Three Angels Broadcasting Network. In many ways this has been a landmark year, highlighted by our celebration of the Pillars of Our Faith. We spoke with 3ABN president, Jim Gilley, and asked him to give us his personal insights on the past year as well as his hopes and dreams for the future. What we heard was both inspiring and exciting, leading us to believe that God is still in control and that we are firmly moving to reach the world with the undiluted three angels mes- sages of Revelation 14.
