Post Sharathon 2017- Getting Closer to the Goal!

Thanks to so many of you, we have reached 83.7% of our $177,000 need post-Sharathon!  As of this writing we still need just under $29,000 in financial commitments/donations to fund KJOL for 2017.  That doesn’t mean that you have to send your money today, it simply means that we need to hear how you plan to support us at any amount over this next year - and potentially beyond. Your part right now enables us to set aside the burden of Sharathon in the future and press on towards the upward call of Christ in the ministry here. So, let us hear from you at 254-5565 Monday-Friday 8 AM- 5 PM, via www.kjol.org, or by U.S. Mail.

Or, you may donate TODAY via our website!  It is a secure way to take debit/credit card donations via our website!  Look for the “donate” button at www.kjol.org or on our Sharathon page and make your donation to KJOL today or anytime during the year with your debit/credit card and thanks again!

Thanks to all of you for your prayers and financial support!

From The Manager’s Desk- We Need to Hear from You!

Ken AndrewsHaving had some time to catch our breath and look back at Sharathon 2017, we are truly grateful to “God’s Fellow Workers” for serving together with us as we broadcast the Good News on KJOL. I am continually amazed at how generously our Listening Family invests in local Christian radio and prays for us!  

If you are one of those "investors", thank you so much for entrusting us with your gifts to KJOL. We take very seriously our responsibility to be good stewards of your donations! And, if you somehow didn't get to participate in Sharathon...well, I know it's easy to miss out on the opportunity. However, can we count on you now? We do indeed need to hear from you! Your commitment enables us to provide a daily radio ministry to the Western Slope (and worldwide via the internet.) We truly need to see this year’s goal met soon as we grow the ministry in 2017 – and beyond. 

When we say "beyond", we are asking you to consider an ongoing commitment beyond 2017. It is our desire to move away from the Sharathon model as we trust the LORD to meet our needs through you - and others like you. We'll have more to say about that in the future. If an "ongoing" commitment is not possible, please consider committing in 2017 only. Either way, we appreciate your prayerful generosity to KJOL. If you received the Pre-Sharathon letter back in March and it's still handy, you can use the tear-off and return envelope provided. If it’s easier, you can go to http://www.KJOL.org and commit online, using the red Make Your Commitment Now button. Or, just call us at 254-KJOL (5565). Whatever means you choose, please act soon and help us meet our full budgeted need. Thanks!

With Summer approaching, be listening for one of my personal favorites - the return of "Jungle Jam and Friends." The "Summer Jam" launches May 27th and 28th (Memorial Day Weekend) and runs through Labor Day weekend. It is fun for ALL ages!

Finally, please keep us in your prayers for a busy Summer and some important projects. We hope to have a new FM translator on the air early this Summer to cover Delta. Exciting!

And, thanks again for your prayerful support of local Christian radio!

Serving together,

Ken Andrews, Manager
United Ministries

Third Day Revives Musical Roots

Third Day

Third Day has revived their “turn of the century” (2000, that is) southern rock style for their latest single, “Revival.”  Mac Powell said this upbeat song was inspired by Revival Week at his childhood church in Alabama. 

"Revival Week required me to do some soul searching and ask myself, 'Am I really at a place where I'm willing to surrender to what God would ask and have of me?'" Powell added, "Brothers and sisters, He wants so much more than just a revival week for us.”  You can watch the official lyric video here.

Simone Biles Dances to “Good Good Father”
Simone Biles
Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles chose to perform a waltz to Chris Tomlin’s “Good, Good Father” on a recent episode of “Dancing With The Stars.”  Biles said she chose the song as a tribute to her grandfather, who rescued Simone and her sisters from foster care and adopted them.  At the end of the dance, Simone ran to embrace her adoptive father, whom she calls “Dad.”  You can watch a video of her story here.

Hillary Scott Releases “Still”
Hillary Scott
Following her Grammy-winning song “Thy Will,” Hillary Scott of the popular country music group Lady Antebellum has released “Still.”  "When our family first heard this song, the citing of Psalm 46 immediately struck a chord with us," said Scott. "It shares that universal feeling everyone feels at times when we're grasping for direction to immediately try and make things better. Sometimes you have to take a step back and this song is a simple reminder that a high power is always in control."  Here is a link to the official lyric video.

The City Harmonic Calls It Quits
The City Harmonic
Canadian worship band The City Harmonic has announced plans to disband following their final album and tour in 2017.  The band began by playing worship for students in Hamilton, Ontario.  Their sound combined rock music with symphonic, sweeping anthem-like choruses.  The four members all shared a desire to spend more time at home and in their local churches.
