From The Manager’s Desk

David AndrewsElm Seed Bugs
If you live in Mesa, Delta, or Montrose counties, you may have new uninvited guests lurking outside your homes…Elm Seed Bugs.   This summer, I discovered that the outside of my home was quickly becoming a scene out of an Alfred Hitchock film, as small 6 legged beetle-like bugs began covering my house, trying to get inside.  We’re not talking a couple.  As of this week, were talking probably in the thousands.  It makes May Moth Madness look like a cake walk.

Luckily, the Make My Day law applies to Elm Seed Bugs, and the local Christian pest control company has been very helpful at keeping them on the outside of the house.  According to the exterminator, these little bugs made their way here from Idaho about 3 years ago (previously of Europe).  While they swarm in large numbers looking for elm seeds to eat, they try to get into your house when the weather turns hot.  Apparently, they appreciate swamp coolers just as much as we do.  

All in all, though, Elm Seed Bugs are actually pretty harmless.

If only everything that tried to get into your home would be the same!

The days of harmless entertainment are certainly behind us.  Media alone represents a substantial portion of our lives and upbringing.  I suspect that if you’re a believer in Christ, you too recognize that there is a huge spiritual battle happening in the realms of media.  TV shows shove ungodly behavior and lifestyles down our throat daily.  Kids programs are inundated with secular humanistic thought.  Some secular radio ads promote the local drug industry.  Movies are full of violence and sexuality. Magazines are glad to teach dangerous promiscuous behaviors.  And music…well that has had a lot of problems for a lot of years.  We are now under full bore indoctrination to the things and thoughts of this world, and it is creeping into homes all around you.  

Choices.  As children of the King, we have a choice.

As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance, but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct…” -1 Peter 1:14-15

What goes in, is what goes out.  We believe that we can help you focus on that which is pure and holy and good.  And out of all the choices vying to get into your home, perhaps it is better to let in something beneficial, and not just something that is even generally harmless. 

Is that worth passing along?  Would you pass along Local Christian Radio to a friend?  Through the message of Christ aired on this station, you could make an impact in a life, and also in our culture.  One more thing…thanks for trusting us in your own home!

DAVID DUNN is known for his song “I Wanna Go Back”
I wanna go back, To Jesus loves me this I know, For the Bible tells me so
I wanna go back, To this little light, Gonna let it shine, I wanna go back
Dunn appeared on the NBC talen program “The Voice” in 2011.  His latest song is “Spend A Life.”  This is his first visit to Nightvision.

JORDAN FELIZ used to be the lead singer of an obscure Christian heavy metal band.  He quit that to become a worship leader in his church.  Then he moved to Nashville and began a solo career with a “folk rock and soul” musical style.  He appeared at Nightvision in 2016.
ZACH WILLIAMS is known as “The Chainbreaker Guy” after his popular song of that title in 2017.  Williams was formerly the lead singer of a rock band.  While touring in Spain in 2012, he turned on the radio and heard “I Am Redeemed” by Big Daddy Weave.  “It stopped me dead in my track and showd me just how lost I was.”  His brand new single is “Rescue Story.”  Zach was at Nightvision 2017.
FOR KING AND COUNTRY is two brothers, Joel & Luke Smallbone, also known as the younger brothers of Rebecca St. James.  Their band name is taken from a British battle cry.  They have been to Nightvision twice, 2015 & 2017.

AARON SHUST began his career leading worship at Atlanta’s Perimeter Church (along with Laura Story).  He is known for “My Savior My God” and “Watch Over Me.”  This is his first appearance at Nightvision.
THE AFTERS began as four guys working at a Starbucks in Texas.  Bart Millard of MercyMe signed them to his record label in 2006.  They were at Nightvision in 2012 and 2016.
COLTON DIXON was an American Idol finalist in 2012, famous for his huge blonde mohawk.  His song “The Other Side” was inspired by his wife’s family after the death of her brother in 2015.  Dixon was at Nightvision 2017.
JEREMY CAMP began his career way back in 2000.  His first wife Melissa died of cancer in 2001, three months after their wedding.  Afterwards, he wrote “I Still Believe.”  His latest song is “Dead Man Walking.”  He performed at Nightvision in 2009 and 2013.
NEWSBOYS are making their third Nightvision appearance (2007, 2016), and fourth visit to western Colorado, having played at Grand Junction’s Riverfront Amphitheater just last year.  They occasionally perform as “Newsboys United” including the group’s founder Peter Furler.  However, the appearance at Nightvision will feature just the four main members of the band
