Hey there Through the Word! It’s been a couple weeks since I checked in with an update, so I thought I should let you all know what we’ve been up to here. We are plugging away at our mission to equip the world to read the Bible, understand it, apply it, and make it a habit. Last month we gathered our team to brainstorm our next steps with the app and the audio guides. So here’s some a quick review of what our team is working on…
Me (Kris): My focus is new audio guides! Just finished up the book of Jonah, now working on a tag team with Jonathan through the book of Exodus. Also spending my evening study time on The Manhood Talks. We will be releasing all of those with the next big app update.
Jonathan: Pastor J is working through 1st Peter, and of course helping me through Exodus. He’s on a short break from recording as he is traveling to Romania and the Middle East. Jonathan works full time as both Junior High Pastor and Missions Pastor (hence the travels) at Refuge Calvary Chapel in Huntington Beach.

on his Instagram page.
Andrea: Our faithful donor relations specialist is busy making plans for our next big giveaway. Looks like we’re considering TTW mugs – so you can have us on your coffee and your phone!
Ryan & Zach: Our Executive Director and our App Developer are working together on the next major update to the TTW app. I’m so excited about this update. The new layout is much more intuitive, gets you right to the content, and keeps it simple! I think you’re gonna like it. Coming this summer!
Question, is the 2nd part of exodus chapter’s 14 and up avail in the Bible app?
Hello Kris thanks for the amazing explanation on the word, please I'll like to know if you have a written guide on the book of revelation and how I can access it. Thanks looking forward to your response
Joe R says
I'm wanting to know the same thing!

Thanks Kris and team. Your app has has a huge impact on our family. We began home schooling our 2 boys this year here in Australia, not happy with what the ‘system’ is introducing to the curriculum. Now we spend more time together, we listen and discuss what we learn from TTW nearly every morning. We pray that your work continues to reach more and more people, and we pray for protection and covering over you and your families as you (we) step further into enemy territory. Praise God you guys!
Kris, I've been using this app for years, since the old app. I luv it! The new app however doesn't check off the books as you finish them. Genesis is the only one marked as complete. Are y'all fixing that?
Thank you, Pastor Kris for enriching my Bible study and understanding. May God continue to bless you!
Thank you, Pastor Kris, for enriching my Bible Study and understanding. I rarely miss a day! May God continue to Bless you!

Thanks Pastor Kris for all you’re doing. I’m off to Uganda and Ethiopia this summer for a medical mission trip. I pray that I have enough of a WiFi signal to be able to get into TTW every day.
Blessings in ALL that you do.
In His Grip,
Thank you Pastor Kris. I live in Ellijay, Ga. I start my day withTTW. I get to encourage others with my comments on each passage. Can’t wait for the mugs. God bless to all of you.

Oh my goodness, I love TTW so much! I just got my 2 BFFs hooked on it by inviting them to do the Revelation Explained plan on YouVersion. So now they are hooked. That's how I discovered and got hooked on TTW, thru the Revelation Explained plan on the YouVersion App. Today was our last day of Part 7. Tomorrow we start Romans Explained together plus I invited another person who accepted. She has now downloaded the TTW App after I told her about it. She friend requested me on Facebook after seeing one of my replies to one of our mutual friends. All your teachers are great but Pastor Kris, you are my favorite! As for my study on TTW, I just finishe Journey 6 yesterday. Tomorrow I start Journey 17. I've been wanting to get into Daniel for quite some time! Thanks TTW!
Let me say I feel welcome after reading your statement and all about the great work you are doing at TTW. Thank You for that.
I am really enjoying Through the Word. I am truly learning so much and and gaing much insight. So glad I found this app. Right now, I am reading the Genesis Journey and you keep talking about the b side of the reading. I am interested in listening to that information. Where do I find that?
So grateful for the audio explanation after the chapters it really helps drive the lessons home to me. Though i am having issues with the app. I cant save my completed progress. Also keeps buffering when i try to update..sorry. I realy do love the simple, enthusiast way Pastor Kris gives commentary at the end..
Found your app through Youversion, Revelation Explained. I do the Youversion app daily. Since finding your TTW app after I'm finished with Revelation, I am going to start the Bible from Genesis. I think what you guys are doing is fabulous. I just wanted to say thank you so much and keep up the great work! God bless you all!

Pastor Kris. I will be there at the base of the life on the first Thursday at 2 o'clock! I just finished Revelation! I truly enjoyed your perspectives about the different symbolisms. They were very eye opening and really got me thinking. Before when I'd read this book of the bible, I had no idea what anything meant. Tomorrow I'm going to start in Genesis and go through the whole bible. Because I really have a lot to learn. I would just like to say thank you for this app and your teachings. God bless you!
What a blessing this app is. You've made reading the bible more understandable. Thank you for your hard work.
Very proud and blessed by the work you are doing. I love this app and spread the word about TTW every chance I get. Ryano you are the best. Cindy A.
Hi Kris our church have been studying revelation, one or two of us are using Youversion listening to you, Fantastic Job, if it wasn't for you I would have given up at the mention of 7 lampstands, It's the first time in 20 + years that I want to get up and listen to the next Bible reading, And guess what my day is so less stressed with god in it, keep up the good work thanks Dave
Love this app. Encouraged me to read bible & Love the explanations. Keep up this important work.

I thank God for everything he is doing through you guys! I discovered TTW through the Bible app & I have been hooked ever since. That lead me to this app. It’s made a huge impact on my life as a husband & dad. I pray God continues to bless you guys & do big things through your work.
Thanks so much Pastor Kris! I found your app late last year and have enjoyed it each day since then. May God bless you and your family and your team as you complete this very important mission!
Any work happening on adding additional versions to the app?
I’m so blessed to have found this app and it’s helping me tremendously in my understanding of the Word! I’m reading the FULL Bible for the first time this year, and I’ve listened to every chapter thus far (currently in Judges).
Quick question, when will the new Exodus work be uploaded? Interested to hear yours and Pastor J’s take on it. Sandy Adams I thought did a phenomenal job.

Joyce Stewart Briles says
Ditto what AshleyC said. God has used your app and audio guides to change my life!
Pastor Kris and the TTW team. I love your passion and your app. I found you on the Starter journey in Youversion. I fell in love with the way you talk about the Bible and bring it to modern world as well as explain it in terms of the Bible time. I am on Journey 2.
Thank you for everything you all do!
I love what you are doing I like how you break things in the bible down so that people can find God the best way they cam keep up the amazing work that you and your team is doing can't wait for the new updates thanks and have a blessed day
