Sharathon 2017- Big Changes - Thurs. – Sat. March 30 – April 1 from 6 AM – 6 PM

Look for big changes outlined in your Sharathon letter arriving in your mailbox any day now (or see Ken’s note below), and listen beginning March 30 @ 6 AM to Sharathon 2017.  Pray now and join the KJOL radio family for the first time with your financial commitment or renew/increase your commitment from the past! We're praying for at least 50 new participants in Sharathon 2017. As new opportunities arise to meet the needs of listeners, we need fellow workers to come along side the ministry so we can continue to serve the Lord through radio and online streaming. Will you answer the call to do just that by clicking here now?

Our theme verse is I Corinthians 3:9- “…God is faithful, through whom you were called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.” Our need this year is $177,000. Listen March 30th – April 1st from 6 AM – 6 PM to hear more about how the Lord is using KJOL to bring good news of great joy to Western Colorado and around the world via our streaming service.

KA2'Tis the season once again...the season for our annual fundraising event, Sharathon 2017. Please mark your calendar for March 30th-April 1st (Thursday through Saturday) and please start praying for us now as we get prepared for Sharathon! This year's theme "God's Fellow Workers...Serving Together" is taken from I Corinthians 3:9 as we are reminded of the partnership we share in the ministry of local Christian radio. We could not do what we do here if it were not for your prayerful investment in KJOL. It truly is a partnership!

We are making some exciting changes this year we hope will make meeting our needs here simpler, more cost effective and more efficient. We do not take these changes lightly and ask that you prayerfully consider our proposal.

Over the years, we have found that our Sharathon events have demanded considerable energy, time and expense, while not always yielding the desired results. That said, we would like to propose a change – asking you to consider an ongoing, recurring commitment for Sharathon 2017 - and beyond. We believe this presents the most effective way to be good stewards of the resources you entrust to us. Just as you support other mission outreaches with your ongoing gifts, we’re hoping you find this means acceptable in your current and future partnership with KJOL. And, we hope you will also be praying for us in this transition!

Our Pre-Sharathon letter is going out soon and will explain further how you can be involved in Sharathon 2017. When you get that letter, please read it carefully and respond as the LORD directs! If you aren't on the mailing list, we will gladly send the letter to you. Just ask! And, of course, be listening for more as we draw closer to Sharathon 2017. We realize it takes some time to adjust to changes, so please remember to pray for us - and for your part too - as we look to the future of local Christian radio.

Don't forget you can make a commitment online at www.KJOL.org. Just look for the Make your Commitment Now! link…it only takes a few minutes to fill out. You can even donate online there with your credit or debit card via the DONATE button under our "On Air Now" box.

By all means, please know how much we value your prayerful investment as members of our Listening Family. Thanks for the privilege of ministering with you through local Christian radio!

Kurt’s ♫Music Notes♫-What Cancer Taught Mark Hall and Darlene Zschech

prayformark (Custom)
Casting Crowns has released a new song written by lead singer Mark Hall after he was diagnosed with kidney cancer in 2015.

During a doctor’s visit for what Hall thought was acid reflux, a mass was discovered on his right kidney.

“You don’t really hear the words You have cancer,” Hall told Guideposts.org. “You hear the words You’re going to die!

At first, he tried to keep the news a secret.  But soon he realized that was the wrong approach.

“God showed me that was just pride,” Hall told Guideposts.org. “I realized I need to talk about this, so I told my church, I told a few friends at Christian radio and the next thing you know the whole world is praying for me.”

Word spread quickly on social media and billboards even appeared in Atlanta that had Hall’s photo and said “Praise You In This Storm” (the title of a Casting Crowns song).

The mass turned out to be an aggressive form of cancer but it had not yet spread and doctors were able to remove it along with the kidney.

During the low point, Hall remembered the words of Psalm 43: “Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise Him, my salvation and my God.”

He wrote the song “Oh My Soul”:
Oh, my soul
You are not alone
There's a place where fear has to face the God you know
One more day, He will make a way
Let Him show you how, you can lay this down
'Cause you're not alone

Former Hillsongs Australia worship leader Darlene Zschech has released her first album since being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2014.  Some of the songs were recorded while she was undergoing chemotherapy.

Zschech says, “The medical world doesn’t like to use the word ‘healed.’  They like to say the word ‘remission’… but I’m believing God’s report over my life.  I speak Psalm 91 over myself every day, I take my medicine and I take the word of God and I do my best with what I can do in the natural and trust God with those things over which I have no power.”

Martin Smith (formerly of Delirious) flew to Australia and helped Zschech write the song “You Are Great” during her treatments:
You are great
Greater the world has ever seen
Higher than the heavens over me
You are great
No one in this world can have Your fame
So let the earth declare Your holy Name Jesus
