I just got this letter from a long-time friend of the ministry. He was very encouraged to learn that our program is back on the air in New York City. I loved what he had to say: “We sure could use a dose of God’s love and grace teaching.”
He went on to tell me the personal impact of the ministry in his life. “Your ministry has been a blessing to me. The teaching and resources have enabled me to live a Christ-centered, Christian life. Truly the grace of God is the power of the Gospel.”
This is so encouraging to me. Jon’s story really follows our ministry’s new tagline – Hear it. Believe it. Live it. The grace of God is working its way out into Jon’s everyday life. As I read his note, I couldn’t help but think of Jesus’ words in John 10:10: “I’ve come that they might have life, and have it to the full.”
This wonderful promise is the reason we do what we do. It is the reason we are so thrilled to connect with new listeners through the radio program.
On June 3rd, we welcomed three new audiences in New York, Washington DC and Louisville, KY. With these three stations, we now reach 150,000 people each Monday through Friday.
But we can’t reach these 150,000 people without the prayers and financial gifts of loyal friends like you.
Our monthly air-time cost is $53,000. This sure sounds like a lot of money and it is. But when you stop and think about it, the cost breaks down to less than 2 cents/day to share the love of Jesus Christ with one person.
What that means to you is this. Your gift of $210 this month will reach 600 hundred people with the good news that Jesus Christ is alive. I encourage you to make this a matter of prayer and give according to what you have decided in your heart to give. Whatever the amount, your gift will “overflow with many expressions of thanks to God” (2 Corinthians 9:12).
Let me tell you a story two people who are very thankful.
Louise called the program wanting to know why God had not healed her of her physical ailments. I heard the pain, disappointment and discouragement in her voice.
She felt her prayers to God were going unanswered, but God had something else in mind for Louise.I told Louise the story of Martha, Mary and Lazarus recorded in John 11. Lazarus was sick. Martha and Mary sent word to Jesus to come and heal their brother. But Jesus didn’t come right away. Mary and Martha did not understand why Jesus didn’t respond to their plea.
Lazarus died and they were distraught. Jesus stayed away because He had something else in mind for Lazarus – new life. When He did show up He shared His heart: “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in Me will never die. Do you believe this?”
This verse paved the way for me to ask Louise if she wanted to receive new life in Christ Jesus. Without hesitation, she responded, “Yes, I do.”
She heard the message concerning Jesus; she believed and is now spiritually alive. And thousands had the privilege of listening in. One of those thousands sent this note after the broadcast.
Just wanted to let you know that I listened to Louise’s call on June 7th and was very moved. Have been struggling with whether I am really saved or not and really appreciated being able to say the prayer along with Louise. I am so glad to have found your ministry, it is truly a blessing. Fran
We truly are privileged to share in God’s work. Your gift today will insure that we are there for others like Louise and Fran. I urge you to make a gift today, and help someone else experience new life in Jesus Christ.
As my way of saying “thank you” for your gift, I want to send you a copy of my DVD message, Basic Gospel – Salvation. If you are like most people, you long for more joy in life. That’s why I want to put this message in your hands.
In my life, whenever joy is lacking, God always takes me back to the basic message of Christ and His love and grace. That rekindles the joy. Please be sure to request your copy and take a fresh look at the magnificent salvation you have so that you can fully enjoy all that Jesus promised.
Your gift has never been more important. Please let me hear from you today.
Because He Lives,
