Our fall fundraiser is officially underway! In many ways, this week is all about crossing the finish line. We started the year with a big goal – to fully fund KLRC operations for a full year and to finish funding the biggest expansion project in KLRC history.
We begin the week with hearts that are full of gratitude because thanks to a lot of friends this spring, we’re already 82% toward hitting these exciting goals!
This week, we have a very special opportunity to not only make a Positive Difference by sharing hope through uplifting music, but also by helping feed the hungry in our community and around the world!
As we approach KLRC's Fall Fundraiser (October 6th-8th), we felt like it was only appropriate to start with prayer. Prayer is what fuels the ministry of KLRC and we very much value those who are called to intercede for us.
Join the team and help support KLRC through prayer!
Willow Run manufacturing plant may not mean anything to you, but it has a unique place in our nation's history and in the history of business.
The prevailing method of building a B-24 bomber saw production of about 1 plane per day. Although something like this had never been tried before a plan was sketched out on paper in the middle of the night that became the largest manufacturing plant in the US that at it’s peak instead of the 1 plane per day, Willow Run produced 1 bomber per hour.
This summer I was in one of our Oklahoma communities. It's a place where my cell phone could barely get a signal, but KLRC's 90.9 signal came in loud and clear.
While I was there, I met a sweet young lady who was so excited to tell me how God uses KLRC in her heart.
Kiersten reached out to us on Twitter with a simple statement, "2.5 months ago I had a car accident that broke my neck. Listening to #KLRC this morning kept me calm as I drove for the first time since!"
140 characters wasn't nearly enough for us, so we asked Kiersten, "What's the rest of your story?"
Recently I shredded years of old records.
As I did so, I walked through some of the most wonderful and hardest places of my life. Like the year I had cancer.
Shredding those records was both healing and joyous.
It’s wonderful to have nice things, but let me give you this word of warning: do not identify who you are with what you own. If you try to value who you are through what you own, you will either overestimate yourself or underestimate yourself.
When you achieve enough wealth to buy a Mercedes Benz and then say to yourself, "I’m finally worth a Mercedes Benz!" you have cheapened your worth. You are worth more than any car of any make or model.
It was hot the day she stopped by the live remote with her daughters to share her story. But once she started talking, I was completely unaware of the temperature. I’m pretty sure her face was actually glowing as she shared with us how God had used KLRC to give her hope during a difficult season.
"Three years ago I was in an MRI machine, and I was concerned about what it was going to show, because we knew it was going to be hard. And the song, 'There will be a day with no more tears, no more pain,’ came on."
When you pull into the property at Restoration Village it’s like entering another world. Surrounded by thick groves of trees; flowers, birds, and butterflies greet you. As you continue up the driveway you’ll notice the lodge, further in is the pond, stables for the horses, and lots of quiet places to sit or walk. This 70 acre oasis in the middle of Northwest Arkansas is a place of healing.
Nowhere is that more obvious then when you step into the dining room; a room where restoration beings to take shape. A room where nutritious meals are served family style, where conversations are loud, and laughter pierces the air. In this room children are learning what family looks like.
