With the countdown on for Sharathon 2014, we are - and will be - celebrating God's Goodness through His people! Our theme this year is "Every Good Thing" from James 1:17. His faithfulness - and yours - is such a blessing to us as we continue to proclaim the Good News of the Gospel on the Western Slope. So, please, mark you calendar for March 20-22, as we "Spring into Sharathon" and trust the Lord to meet our need and to be glorified through our annual fundraising event.
If you are one who received our Pre-Sharathon letter recently, please take the time to read it, pray about your part and use the tear-off to indicate your commitment to KJOL. And, don't forget to send it in soon and help us build a base for Sharathon 2014. If you prefer, you can make your Faith Promise online through our website at www.kjol.org. But wait, there's more! You can also commit as you listen online via our web player and use the "Faith Promise" button. However you choose, it is important to hear from you soon!
One more thing: if you made a commitment to last year's event, please wrap up any remaining balances from Sharathon 2013 . If you are unsure of your status, feel free to call us at 254-KJOL or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will check out your status and get back to you.
OK...one more thing! We sincerely are thankful for your prayers and investment in local Christian radio. It is humbling to know you entrust your funds to us and it is a privilege we don't take lightly. SO...thank you!
Trusting Him for "Every Good Thing!"
Ken Andrews, Manager
Sharathon 2014 theme song performed by The Afters
The Sharathon 2014 theme song is â€śEvery Good Thingâ€ť by The Afters.Â The group was started in 1999 by Joshua Havens and Matt Fuqua, who met while working together at a Starbucks coffee shop in Mesquite, Texas, where they played with customers.Â They decided to form a band, recruiting two more of their Starbucks co-workers.
In 2008, their song â€śNever Going Back To OKâ€ť was the #1 song of the year for Christian hit radio (also featured on KJOLâ€™s Contemporary Music program on Saturday nights).
In 2012, their song â€śLife Is Beautifulâ€ť was featured during the closing credits of the pro-life movie October Baby.Â The song is also the title track of their latest album, which includes the song â€śEvery Good Thing.â€ťÂ
You're the reason for every good thing, every heartbeat
Every day we get to breathe
You're the reason for anything that lasts, every second chance
Every laugh, life is so sweet
You're the reason for every good thing, every good thing
Every good thing, every good thing
Carman says he is cancer free
On Valentineâ€™s Day 2013, Christian singer Carman announced on his Facebook page that he had been diagnosed with myeloma, an incurable cancer of the plasma.Â He was told he had three to five years to live.Â He underwent chemotherapy, and launched a Kickstarter fund drive to record a new album.Â He asked for $200,000, and has now raised more than $500,000.
Then on February 7, 2014, Carman said new tests found no trace of the cancer!Â According to his Facebook page (www.facebook.com/CarmanLicciardello), â€śThey took tests â€¦ and could find NO trace of Cancer. That's amazing. We're talking about drilling into your bone to search for a cancer cell and coming up empty.â€ť
Carman says he is doing so well, his chemotherapy has been cut short by six weeks.Â His new album is due in stores in May, when he will begin a nationwide tour.
Darlene Zschech has breast cancer
Former Hillsong worship leader Darlene Zschech is undergoing chemotherapy to treat breast cancer, which she announced on her blog in December.Â Zschech, who leads a new church in Sydney with her husband, Mark, added, â€śMark keeps reminding me how much money weâ€™ll save on hairdressers!â€ťÂ She is planning a Thanksgiving service at their church in November, where they will records songs that were written during her cancer ordeal.
We really enjoy your programming and the fact that you are playing more current music like Building 429, Sidewalk Prophets, and Big Daddy Weave to name a few. We also enjoy that we can listen online since it doesn't come in very well in Lazear and Hotchkiss again thank you.
Thankful for your faithfulness!
- Debbie, Palisade
You are doing a wonderful job.
- Jeff, Paonia
