If you visited our studio earlier this month, you would have seen our staff in full “Fall Share Mode”. There were so many details to care for, from phones and computers, to volunteers and guest hosts. We had to make decisions about which songs to play, and how to encourage our listeners to invest in the ministry here.

Another element of our Fall Share involved choosing the listener stories we shared during the event. We receive countless comments and stories from our listeners about the impact your gifts are making in their lives through Life 97.9. We wanted to choose the most compelling stories to share with you during our Fall Share. We have two goals in minds as we do this. First, if you are a current donor, we want to give you a report on what your past gifts have accomplished. Secondly, if you’re not currently giving, we want you to see how a generous gift from you can help change others’ lives.

Here’s one of the stories we shared on the air. A young woman wrote: “Your station has been my go-to for so many years. My relationship with Jesus actually really began at the age of 12 when I first went into foster care. The only way I made it through all those years was because I was introduced to this station. Thank you for being so uplifting and giving hope to those without!”

Your gifts to Life 97.9 reminded a young girl about God’s unconditional love for her in the middle of stuff she had no control over. Hope is a powerful thing, and thanks to you she was able to get through these tumultuous years with hope and faith.

So, all of our busy-ness here at the station this month has a purpose; to encourage you to stand with us financially. Be the one who helps the next young person navigate a tough life situation with your compassionate gift today. Here’s where you can give right now. Thank you!

Yours in Christ,

Doug Smith

Station Manager
