From The Managerâs Desk- Itâs Here!
Well, if you've been in many of the stores, you'd think it's been here for a while! I'm talking about the Holiday Season, of course, and we are now poised to give thanks to the LORD for His daily provision, as well as the provision of His Son, the LORD Jesus Christ. We are looking forward to sharing great Christmas music, dramas and specials - new offerings AND old favorites. (Hint: I think you will "Treasure" one particular series that returns this year!) Be sure to listen and tell your friends and family that local Christian radio will help them keep their focus on the real "Reason for the Season!" And friends and family just about anywhere can listen to KJOL streaming on the internet through computers and many hand held devices. Just direct them to our website at www.kjol.org.
Speaking streaming on the web, KJOL offers "apps" that are easily downloaded (and they are free) for Apple and Android. It's a great way to conveniently tune in anytime, anywhere. And, when you listen online, there are some great features to our web player, including a way to share local Christian radio with others and a "Talkback" button where you can send us messages. There are a lot of other features worth checking out...so, please do!
I'm sure you knew I couldn't go without talking about finances. October helped us to get back on a more even keel, after weaker than usual income in August and September. Thanks so much to the many who were faithful and even shared a little extra! Please remember that these last two months of 2014 are critical to ending the year with our obligations met and ready to launch 2015. Nuff said!
In all things, we are grateful for your prayers and investment in local Christian radio. It is our privilege to serve the LORD here, and humbling to know He has chosen to use such weak vessels at KJOL. PTL!
