Here are some news items from the week! ~ Lynn
Tuesday, Abraham Productions announced another addition to the API Board of Directors! Brian Free (Brian Free & Assurance) will be joining the team. Congratulations, Brian!
Also, Sirius/XM has announced they are bringing Enlighten back to channel 65 at 3am (Eastern) on December 6th…three weeks earlier than previously announced! Though the original “change back” date was December 5th, but Sirius/XM later did a “soft announcement,” changing it to December 28th. So the fact that they are rolling it back before the end of December is great news!
Wednesday, The Talleys announced that 2020 will be their last year to tour in full time ministry as a group. In the future, Roger will continue his work producing and being a part of Abraham Productions, Debra will be involved with speaking at women’s conferences and Lauren will launch a full time solo career. (You can watch the full announcement video on the Talleys Facebook page.)
