Just a Little Silly

This week has been just a little bit silly at the Journey. Spring Sharathon is coming, and everything involved in getting ready for that. In the last few days, I’ve placed orders for almost $70,000 worth of equipment and furniture for the new production studio, programming computers, phone system upgrade and studio transmitter links. Construction at the new building is complete. I was out sick with a stomach bug for a couple days.  And most of a hundred high school students are on campus for a film challenge sponsored by my other job as a university professor. Like I said, kind of silly around here. And it’s pretty obvious why we need your prayers and support.

Sharathon is days away. If you are new to the family, you need to know we are a listener supported ministry that exists because listeners like you believe in our mission and share their God-given resources with us. We’re doing something a little different this year. Our goal is a definitive $93,279, exactly what we need, looking at the budget and what we expect to receive from our monthly contributors. We will be starting the goal at zero, with no match money set aside, no built-in monthly total included. We want to be honest and transparent in all things, but especially with how we use the resources you share with us.

Over the next few days, please pray for the staff, our health, our preparations, friends who will travel to help with our Sharathon, work on our new studios, and of course, how you can be involved during Sharathon. I know it kind of a long list, but like I said, it’s been kind of silly around here. Thank you.

Thank You!

I’m certain I don’t say it often enough, but this time it’s easy. Thank you to 110 individuals and families who are partnering with us as part of our Gideon’s Army project. Your support will help us finish a new home for 88.3 The Journey. And thanks again to Huguley Hospital for providing a former doctor’s office here in Keene to turn into a radio station.

Obviously, 119 isn’t the 300 we were asking for when we started the project.  Another thing I am certain of, after most of thirty years managing listener supported Christian radio stations, is God always uses listeners to provide exactly what we need when we need it. So I am certain this is what we need to finish the project.

Just like with Gideon, God has different plans than ours sometimes. He will provide what we need in a fashion that brings Him glory and honor, just as it should be. I will order equipment this week with the funds we have on hand to bring the reality of a new home for the Journey one step closer. Thanks again for your prayers and support. It is appreciated.
