Dr. Anderson’s daughter, Marie McCarthy, along with her husband, Bob, are active
Tele-Missions’ Board Members and on the Scholarship Council Advisory.

Dear Family and Friends of Tele-Missions,

Greetings from Eastern Canada — land of snows, snowplows, and 10-foot snowbanks. This year’s Spring, we are looking forward to and will never be more welcome!! Today, Bob and I join with you all in spirit across the miles to not only honor the memory of our own dad, but to celebrate the on-going ministry of Tele-Missions International and the Child Care Center. I remember so clearly the enthusiasm and exuberance that dad brought to the formation of this out-reach back in the 50s. He knew that many more people could be reached with the gospel through the emerging media of T.V. and film. As a result, Tele-Missions was born-and now the work has evolved, expanded and flourished 61 years. God has blessed, and how wonderful it is to be able to celebrate with all of you today as we press forward to serve the Lord.
God Bless you all,
Robert and Marie McCarthy

As director of TMI… I, Gordon S. Anderson, Jr., am happy that Marie and Bob stay in close touch through email and phone communication. They are very involved with ministry that our father the late Dr. Gordon S. Anderson, Sr. founded and have given of their time, talents and finances to keep this ministry going forward. I personally thank God for their support over the many, many years working together in the great ministry of TMI and with the addition now of The Shepherd’s Little Family Child Care Center.
