Wow! Our hearts are so full. Truly, we are in awe at how God worked through you this week to not only meet and exceed the operational needs for KLRC, but also to help put hands and feet to a vision that God has given us to reach more people than ever before with the hope of Jesus!
Wow! We didn't even get to the end of the second full day of our fall fundraiser before the goal was hit! More than 900 of you have responded so generously that we are fully funded a full day early. We are in awe of what God has done through you this week!
With the operational needs fully covered through March, we want to share a really special opportunity with you. Over the last year, our team has been seeking God about the direction He wants to take His ministry of KLRC in the next few years. Our mission at KLRC is to share hope in Christ with as many people as possible. As we pray, dream and plan about the future, we feel like God is leading us to focus on some very tangible ways He might reach even more with the hope found only in His Son, Jesus.
As we prepared for our fundraiser last spring, we determined the listener portion of our budget for 2017 to be $1,160,000.
Thanks to your generous giving during the Spring Fundraiser, KLRC ended that event at $830,000 towards our overall annual goal! That leaves us with a funding need this fall of about $330,000.
"Hi, this is Tyler. I’m haying my parent’s field right now listening to KLRC and I have to tell you what just happened."
When I answered the phone that morning, I had no idea who would be on the line. It was 18 year-old Tyler. A new firefighter who loves his job. A son who helps his parents out on the farm. A young man who was just diagnosed with glaucoma.
For the KLRC Fall Fundraiser, we’re excited to invite you to Be the Change in our community through KLRC, and around the world too!
For each new $30/mo. (or more) gift given to the KLRC Fall Fundraiser, our friends at Tacos 4 Life will provide a month’s worth of meals through Feed My Starving Children in your honor.
This past summer, our KLRC staff studied a book on prayer, and the author made the statement that, "When Jesus hears unified prayer, his heart soars like a music lover taking in a symphony." As we get ready for the "Be the Change" Fall Fundraiser, we believe one of the most important things we can do is pray... together. Like a beautiful symphony!
Marsha lives in a nursing home in Oklahoma. We may never actually get to sit down at a table with her, but to me she is the perfect picture of what it means to be family with someone that you have never actually met!
I remember Marsha calling a while back. She had moved to a new nursing home and couldn't listen to KLRC any more. However, she got an iPhone for Christmas and had somebody download the KLRC app for her so she could listen to The Positive Difference.
Alice Gray tells the story of a young mother who came home after a long, hard day. Her little girl ran out of the house to greet her.
“Mommy, Mommy, wait until I tell you what happened today!” After listening to a few sentences, the mother responded by saying the rest could wait until later. She needed to get dinner started. The little girl looked for opportunities to continue her story, but the phone rang and her mom talked on the phone while she got the meal ready. During the meal, other family members’ stories were longer and louder than the little girls. She tried again after the kitchen was cleaned, but then mom had to help her big brother with his homework. Then it was time for her to get ready for bed.
In Luke 10:29, a man asked Jesus, "Who is my neighbor?"
Jesus responded with a story of a man robbed, beaten, and stripped of his dignity. Several religious people passed him by, even though they were neighbors. Then a man who had nothing in common with him stopped and tended to him, and made sure he was safe.
BOGO has always been one of my favorite phrases. Who doesn’t love to buy one get one? But recently I’ve found something I love more than BOGO: Buy One Give One.
That’s the model that Tacos 4 Life was built on. In partnership with Feed My Starving Children, they are feeding God’s starving children who are hungry in body and spirit by providing a meal for every meal they sell in their restaurants.
