We are oh, so close to fulfilling our need in Sharathon 2016 through "Post" Sharathon! Hopefully in the next few weeks our need will be met and we can move on as Summer approaches with a very busy season ahead. If you have not made a Faith Promise to KJOL for the upcoming year, please pray about that, and - if the Lord so directs -please do that soon! Remember, you can make your commitment online at www.kjol.org and even donate directly now by credit or debit card. (Just look for the "DONATE" button on the website.)
We are coming into the season where maintenance and vacations will take a lot of our time, and we would appreciate your prayers. We need to take care of some issues at our Delta site, as well as deal with a serious (very serious) lighting strike at our Paonia translator location. We are now working to repair and restore service. Our first step will be to try to restore service temporarily at a lower power while repairs are being done. Please pray - this will not be cheap fix! Also pray for our other sites during this time of year as it's the season for weather related "incidents" that can keep us very busy (and be quite costly.)
But now, some good news! We were able to recently purchase an FM translator license for Delta! The FCC has allowed AM stations to acquire these translators to function as fill-ins, and this new license will be a fill-in for KJYE-AM. The new translator will provide FM coverage of local Christian radio for Delta. More good news! We were able to procure a grant that substantially covers the cost of the license and equipment needed. Praise the LORD! We are not sure yet as to when we will be able to build, but will keep you posted!
Finally, in the aftermath of Sharathon, we have received many kind letters and notes of appreciation for the ministry of KJOL. I cannot begin to express what that means as we co-labor with you for the Gospel. It is very humbling to hear these words of appreciation and we count it a privilege to serve you through Christian radio. We do not take lightly this privilege! We continue to covet your prayers as we share the Message the world so desperately needs to hear. Thank you!
