“Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”
- Matthew 1:20-21 (NIV)

It’s “name that tune” for the Christmas season when you play the KJOL “Do You Hear What I Hear Christmas Carol Contest!”  Tune in for short clips of your favorite, or in some cases, more obscure, Christmas Carols at 7:45 AM, 11:45 AM, 2:45 PM, and 4:45 PM.  Then, if you are the first correct caller at 4:45 PM to guess the carol for that day, you will win a CD of great Christmas music along with a gift certificate from a local merchant and KJOL!  So, brush up on those Christmas Carols, remember our contest line (254-5555), and tune in weekdays December 12 – 23rd for the KJOL “Do You Hear What I Hear?” Christmas Carol Contest.

From The Manager’s Desk- It Is Here!

Ken AndrewsThe Holiday Season, of course! We are in "high gear" with what I believe is the best Christmas programming and music to be found anywhere. Our specials are always, well - special - and you can keep track of the daily offerings by logging on to our website for the calendar of special programs, cantatas and dramas. You can even download and print it now for easy reference. If it is easier, we will be glad to mail you one. Please tell your friends about local Christian radio this season, and remind them they can listen online at www.KJOL.org. They can even download free KJOL Radio apps for Apple and Android from a link on our Home Page.

This is the season too for the (you knew it was coming, right?) annual reminder about year-end giving. f you are on our mailing list you should have received our annual year-end letter with a return envelope. It simply states our need and provided the chance for you to prayerfully respond with your gift before year's end. December is an absolutely critical month for us as we wrap up our fiscal and calendar year for 2016. Your generous investment at year's end will help ensure a strong financial finish so we can meet all our obligations and be ready to tackle the New Year. Your gifts may be tax deductible and must be received or postmarked by December 31st to count for tax purposes in 2016. Thank you in advance for your part as a member of the KJOL Listening Family. Your prayers and investment mean so much to us; we are grateful and humbled to have the privilege to serve the LORD and you through local Christian radio.

I hope and pray you and your family will have a blessed and Merry Christ-filled Christmas!

Glory to God in the Highest,

Ken Andrews, Manager
United Ministries

Dear KJOL, It's difficult to express how much your partnership with Operation Christmas Child has meant to us. With your help, the Western Slope has given the gospel and a tangible gift of love to 81,775 children since 2006. But your partnership with us started long before that. Our hearts are filled with gratitude for your encouragement to this ministry. KJOL is a true example of a servant's heart representing Jesus Christ to our community. 

- The Western Slope Team, Operation Christmas Child.
