From The Manager’s Desk- SO Much Happening!

Ken AndrewsSchool's out and the unofficial start to Summer is behind us after the Memorial Day Weekend. And, so much IS happening!

First, we would ask you to pray for us on several fronts; Post-Sharathon continues and we are inching our way toward our full need, gaining new "investors" along the way. It is very important to have new folks come on board, so if you've never donated to KJOL before, well, you know where I'm going with that! And, of course, if you are a "veteran investor" but have yet to commit, we do need to hear from you now too. You can click here to “Make Your Commitment Now.” Or, if it is easier, you can make your donation on our Home Page by using the “Donate” button as well.
donate-blueEither way, your prayerful participation IS important and needed now!

Secondly, not as much is happening on our "actual income" front as we would like. "Actual income" as measured against "projected income" has lagged these last few months. It is critical for that to pick up in June and for the Summer as we typically see an income slowdown anyway in the Summer along with an uptick in expenses. So, your prayers and generosity are especially appreciated at this time!

We are going to be busy with seasonal maintenance, staff vacations and a few projects to accomplish this summer. The big project on the table is to install a new FM translator to cover Delta and I hope to see that happen "soon." I say "hope" because available time for the engineers, weather and cash flow are factors. Again, your prayers are appreciated!

Finally, I want thank the many who continually pray for us and invest generously (often sacrificially) to meet our needs. As I've said before, it is very humbling to see your commitment to local Christian radio and we do not take lightly our responsibility to be good stewards of your investment in KJOL.

Have a great Summer!

United Ministries

Kurt’s Music Notes-From Reality Remodeling To Newsboys Reunion

Boise-Boy small
Luke Caldwell and Clint Robertson

Luke Caldwell, the leader of the band Estherlyn, has made his debut on a new reality TV show for HGTV called “Boise Boys.”  Caldwell and his business partner Clint Robertson are described as “polar opposite friends” who buy old houses and fix them up.  Robertson is already familiar with reality TV:  he has the distinction of being fired by Donald Trump as the runnerup on 2011 edition of “The Apprentice.”

Caldwell’s father founded Calvary Chapel Boise, where Luke was the youth pastor.  He named the band after his niece, Esther Lyn, who was adopted from China.  Estherlyn has apparently disbanded, and Caldwell will continue as a solo artist.

Joel Smallbone citizen small
Newly-minted U.S. citizen Joel Smallbone

Joel Smallbone, brother of Rebecca St. James and half of the group For King And Country with his brother Luke, has officially become a United States citizen.  Smallbone took the oath in Nashville a few weeks ago.  According to his Facebook video, all of his family are now U.S. citizens.  And yes, he is retaining his Australian citizenship.

tait-and-furler small
Michael Tait and Peter Furler

The Newsboys have released a new song that features a guest performance by former lead singer Peter Furler.  “The Cross Has The Final Word” was written by Cody Carnes, better known as the husband of worship leader Kari Jobe.  Former dcTalk lead singer Michael Tait replaced Furler as the Newsboys frontman in 2009.

In recent years, Furler has performed with mercurial 1980s musician Steve Taylor and also has his own band.  He is married to the daughter of 1970s musician Mylon LeFevre.
