From The Manager’s Desk

David AndrewsIt’s starting to feel like fall! I love seeing the leaves turn orange and the temperatures starting to cool down.  Soup in the pot, and a drive over the Grand Mesa is now a must do.  And with the current change of the season, could I take a moment to urge you to consider supporting local Christian radio ministry this month? 

Enjoying September’s Letter Month, we are struck with how KJOL is making an impact for Christ in our community.  And while we were truly blessed with the opportunity to hear how others are being blessed, this ministry definitely struggled to make budgetary goals in September.  

There are several ways that you can help.  First and foremost, if you would commit to support us for the last 3 months of 2019, we would be so grateful! Even a small one time gift makes a difference.  Second, if you would be willing to tell someone else about this ministry, and how it makes an impact in your life, more listeners will eventually mean more supporters long-term.  And third, we would love it if you could tell your church leadership about us, and ask what it would take for your church to support KJOL, such as with a missions organization.  With churches working on next year’s budgets right now, it’s an opportune time to ask. 

Thank you for your prayerful support as well! We could really use that! And thanks to all who are faithful in their financial support of this ministry to the Western Slope and beyond.

God bless,

Dave Andrews
KJOL Station Manager


PS- I mentioned Letter Month…be sure to check out some of the feedback we received a little farther down in this very email. So neat!


Kurt's Music News Big Daddy Weave's 'Redeemed' leads to confession

KurtWhen Danny Holmes took the stand in a Tennessee courtroom, he confessed to killing a man.  The courtroom was stunned.  And then he was sentenced to life in prison.
 Holmes told the court he was convinced to confess after listening to the words of the song Redeemed” by Big Daddy Weave

“Then you look at this prisoner and say to me
‘Son, stop fighting a fight that’s already been won.’
I am redeemed.  You set me free.”

Holmes said, “For 30 years, I ain’t never fought for anything that made sense.  But I knew the Lord was telling me to fight for Him this time.”  He looked at his weeping mother and said, “Momma, you know I love you.  But Momma, I promise you, your baby boy, he’s going to serve the Lord forever.”
It’s not the first time that song has changed a life.  In 2012, rock singer Zach Williams heard the song while touring in Europe.  He canceled the tour and went home to his wife.  Four years later he wrote “Chain Breaker.”
