good news Verse for today
He was oppressed and afflicted,yet he did not open his mouth;he was led like a lamb to the slaughter,and as a sheep before its shearers is silent,so he did not open his mouth.By oppression and judgment he was taken away.Yet who of his generation protested? For he was cut off from the land of the living;for the transgression of my people he was punished.He was assigned a grave with the wicked,and with the rich in his death, though he had done no violence,nor was any deceit in his mouth. -- Isaiah 53: 7-9

KJOL E-Newsletter Vol. 145 – April 2017

“Jesus replied, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life.
- John 12:23-25 (ESV)

Thanks to so many of you, we have reached 73.5% of our $177,000 need post-Sharathon!  As of this writing we have $130,068 in financial commitments/donations to fund KJOL for 2017.  That doesn’t mean that you have to send your money today, it simply means that we need to hear how you plan to support us at any amount over this next year and beyond. So, let us hear from you at 254-5565 Monday-Friday 8 AM- 5 PM, via www.kjol.org, or by U.S. Mail.

Also, you may donate today via our website!  It is a secure way to take debit/credit card donations via our website!  Look for the “donate” button at www.kjol.org or on our Sharathon page and make your donation to KJOL today or anytime during the year with your debit/credit card and thanks again!

We believe God has asked us to shine the light of Christ by bring the Good News through music and instruction that develops disciples of Christ everyday, but we can’t do it without your prayers and financial support.  So, please pray for us, for others in our listening family and, of course, for your part in seeing our need met in a timely way and together we will proclaim the greatness of our God in Western Colorado and the world via our radio and internet ministry.

From The Manager’s Desk- Looking Back – AND – Looking Ahead…

Ken Andrews With Sharathon 2017 behind us, I want thank everyone who prayed and made a commitment to KJOL during Pre-Sharathon and the three day event. Your generosity and loyalty are humbling and sometimes a bit overwhelming. Thank you for entrusting your investment in local Christian radio to us. We continue to take very seriously our responsibility to be good stewards of that investment.

As we look ahead in POST-Sharathon, it is obvious we need to close the gap on our remaining need. If you missed out on your chance to commit before now, please pray about what you can do at this time. And, of course respond soon! If you received our Pre-Sharathon letter you can still use the tear-off and return envelope provided. If it is easier, simply go online at www.kjol.org and use the red "Make Your Commitment Now" button. (You can also donate directly through the blue "Donate" button.) There still is the old fashioned way to commit by mail. However you choose to commit and be involved, we DO appreciate your participation!

Please keep us in prayer as we look forward to some important projects this year, including a new FM translator for our Delta station (1400 AM.) Lord willing, we hope to have it up and on the air by early Summer.

Blessings as we serve Him together!

Ken Andrews, Manager
United Ministries

Kurt’s Music Notes-Artists in the News

Carman, the singer known for “The Champion,” has revealed on his Facebook page that doctors have found another tumor on his shoulder.  In 2013, Carman was diagnosed with myeloma cancer and was given three to four years to live.  Then in 2014, after raising $230,000 for a new album and tour, Carman announced that he was cancer free.  Now he is requesting prayer as he awaits the results of the biopsy.

Lauren Daigle
Lauren Daigle, the 2016 Dove Award “Artist of the Year” for her song “Dry Bones,” sang a duet with Reba McEntire at the Academy of Country Music awards on April 2.  The song, “Back To God,” is featured on Reba’s debut gospel album, “Sing It Now.”  Daigle lives in Atlanta, Georgia, where she leads worship at Andy Stanley’s North Point Church.

Michael Boggs
Michael Boggs was the guitarist for the group FFH for many years with Jeromy and Jennifer Deibler.  When Jeromy was diagnosed with MS in 2006, the group took a break.  Boggs has now teamed up with country singer Brooke Voland to form Brooke + Boggs.  They have just released a five-song worship album called “Wildfire.”

Jaci Velasquez
Jaci Velasquez has released her first worship album, called “Trust.”  A Spanish-language version (“Confio”) was released at the same time.  “Trust is an underlying theme for me as a wife and a mom,” says Velasquez. “You can’t have a relationship without trust. Like my husband and I, there are no secrets and we trust each other no matter what. The same is true with my relationship with Jesus.”
