May is upon us, which means eight years now at the Journey.  One of the things I love about my work, is its location on a college campus and getting to work with young people at the beginning of their professional lives, teaching them a few things about communication, sharing from four decades of experience.  But, it is a bittersweet experience some days.

Two of our students, Victory and Adrian, are graduating and entering the next phase of their lives.  I am excited about their futures and look forward to hearing where God is leading them next.  Many of our other student workers will be heading home or to camp for the summer, as well.  We will miss them and look forward to having them back in August.

That means, of course, new voices on the air, beginning soon. And if you have a few minutes, you can wish Victory and Adrian a fond farewell on our Facebook page.

Spring In The Air

The Spring rains have begun. Temperatures are growing warmer and days are growing longer. My lawn is starting to green up. And Wanda is beginning to make noise about replacing plants and shrubs that we lost over the winter. Spring is upon us.

If you are new to the Journey® family, you should know the arrival of Spring also means the coming of our Spring Sharathon. I’m sure you realize, raising money isn’t the easiest task, but it’s how we stay on the air. It’s also good for us, because it reminds us how God always provides for this ministry. And He always does it through listeners like you. Better yet, it also draws us together and gives us a desire to see God bless you in big ways!

So, I’m praying Psalm 127 for you as we put the finishing touches on Spring Sharathon. We’re praying God will build your house, guard your city and shower blessings on you and your family. And as you give to The Journey®, know you are part of something greater. We’re building things together that will last long after we are gone and have an impact for eternity!

The Journey® Spring Sharathon starts Tuesday, March 27. We’ll be asking you to join our team. Will you be praying about it even now? Because you’re just as much a part of this ministry through your giving, as I am on this side of the microphone.
