Pack SnackPacks for Kids!

Last week during Sharathon 2016, you not only met and exceeded KLRC's Spring Sharathon goal, but you provided Snack Packs for 300 kids in Northwest Arkansas! That's 300 kids in our local communities who won't go hungry for an entire school year.

Now we're inviting you to join us in helping pack those SnackPacks for kids! The packing is an assembly line process where there are teams who open up food products and teams who pack the bags. The bags are then counted, placed in bins, and then stacked up onto pallets so they're ready for delivery to schools.

That looks like annihilation to the human eye.  But Paul had changed his way of viewing death.  He looked at it from God’s perspective.  The Greek word that is translated “departure” is a word that is also used by soldiers in the field striking his tent, packing his gear and heading for home.  Departure.  The same word is used also for sailors who are in foreign port who cast of the moorings and sail for home.  Paul got it right I think.  Death is not the end.  Only a departure for home.

The Faith of a Child

This morning 8 year old Emma was listening to KLRC when she heard that Jack had called to give $10 of his birthday money. Emma and her brother Paxton went to mom and said, “We want to give too!” A little bit later Emma, her mom, and her brothers brought their giving jars to KLRC. Emma said that she wanted to give to KLRC because she loves singing and dancing along to the music and she wanted to help.

2 Months From Being Homeless

I was standing in the KLRC lobby when Patty walked in the door. She was shaking and had tears streaming down her face. I had no idea why she was so emotional, but Cheri did.

Where Does KLRC's Budget Come From?

One of the biggest "aha" moments my wife and I had about money is when we began to understand that this thing we kept referring to as “our money” wasn’t actually ours at all. If the earth and everything in it belong to the Lord, then that includes our finances. That means that each of us has been entrusted to manage, or steward, a certain amount of resources for God. “Our money” is not ours because we own it or have a right to it. “Our money” is ours because God has entrusted it to us to manage or steward for Him.

Our 2016 Sharathon Goal

After much prayer and many hours invested in the budget process, we’ve determined the listener portion of our budget for 2016 to be $1,110,000.

We’re anticipating the need to hold two on-air fundraisers to reach our annual listener budget need. The first is happening March 15-18 during KLRC’s "Be One" Spring Sharathon. Our goal for this specific event is $790,000. That will leave us with a funding need this fall of about $320,000.

SnackPacks for Kids

He was sent to the office because he had been caught stealing, but when they question him about the incident they realized he wasn’t a bad kid, he was a hungry kid.

The SnackPack for Kids Program Coordinator, Bonnie, was sharing with me an email she had received from a school counselor at a local high school. A teen boy had been sent to the office for stealing another kid’s lunch. As the counselor tried to get to the bottom of the story she realized that this was more than a disciplinary issue… it was a hurting kid who was scared of facing another weekend with nothing to eat. That’s where Bonnie and the team at Samaritan Community Center came in. Now, this young man doesn’t have to worry about where he’ll find food every weekend, because he’s being supplied with a weekly SnackPack every Friday.

A Letter From the Heart

Do you remember the last time you received a hand-written letter in the mail? We have so many instant ways of communicating today that it’s pretty special when someone takes the time to send a hand-written note. This is especially true when the words shared on paper give you an opportunity to get to know the heart behind the person writing the letter.

I received such a letter recently. The writer, who we’ll call Laura, began by thanking KLRC for the role God has allowed the station to play in her life.
