good news Verse for today
Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings. -- I Peter 5:8-9

Pastor Appreciation Month- Ideas for October & Beyond

Pastor Appreciation Logo

Current and former pastors agree the job is demanding: 84 percent of current pastors and 83 percent of former pastors say they feel on call 24 hours a day, while 48 percent of each group say the demands of ministry often feel like more than they can handle. Pastor Appreciation Month is a special time set aside each year to honor pastors and pastoral families for the hard work, sacrificial dedication and multiple blessings provided by these special people. Make plans to show your appreciation for those shepherds in your life by downloading your free clergy appreciation guide today or clicking the links below.

From The Manager’s Desk- How Many Times Have I Said This?

Ken AndrewsProbably MANY times, but..."This year is racing by!"
It really is hard to believe that the end of 2017 is drawing near and we are already seeing Christmas promotions online and in the stores. As we come to this time of year, we would appreciate you prayers on several fronts. First, as we prepare programming that prepares our hearts for the upcoming special seasons, please pray for us that we can touch hearts with the Gospel message of the Redeemer who came so long ago - and is coming again!

Secondly, please pray for our income needs. It has been a challenging year, to say the least. While we are now catching up on the shortfall we've endured most of this year, there is still as significant amount to make up. Your generosity it so appreciated and we take very seriously our privilege of serving the LORD and you through local Christian radio.

We are oh-so-close to installing a new translator to cover Delta at 94.5 FM. The equipment is in hand and we are simply waiting on the engineers to be able to install on site. We'd like to get this done soon, so please pray.

And, a couple final notes: we are now on Facebook and you can find us at facebook.com/kjolradio. Check it out! And, we have a brand new (updated) program guide, so if you would like one - or several - please let us know and they will be on the way to you quickly.

As always, thank you for your prayers and investment in KJOL. You are an important member of our radio family!

Kurt’s Music Notes-Natalie Grant Cancer Surgery Update

Natalie Grant

Natalie Grant cancer free
Natalie Grant had surgery on October 10 to remove a tumor in her thyroid.  On Monday, Oct. 16, she announced on her Facebook page that the tumor was malignant but the surgeons were able to completely remove it and she is now cancer free.  She said they found two nodules containing papillary thyroid cancer, but the cancer was encapsulated in the nodules and had not spread.

Natalie says she had been aware of the tumors for quite a while:

Three years ago I had an ultrasound on my thyroid. At that time the doctors found several tumors, nodules, on my thyroid which they said looked benign and un-concerning.

Two weeks ago I had an ultrasound and two of the tumors on the right side of my thyroid have decided to not stay un-concerning.

She said this ordeal has been helping her to wait on the Lord:

God is really convicting me about how I act while I am waiting for the God report.  Am I living a life of faith? Not just singing about the King of the world, but actually trusting the King of the world.

Grant’s most recent hit is called King of the World.” 

I try to keep You safely in between the lines
I try to put You in the box that I've designed

How could I make You so small?
When You're the One who holds it all
When did I forget that You've always been the King of the World

Natalie said the doctors checked her vocal chords and confirmed they were not damaged during surgery.  After several weeks of rest and therapy, she is expected to make a full recovery.  She plans to proceed with her 12-city "Celebrate Christmas" tour with Danny Gokey beginning November 30.

Her Facebook page is www.facebook.com/nataliegrantmusic.

Corey Voss, worship leader & doppelganger


Corey Voss is a worship leader at Gateway Church near Nashville.   His newest song Canyons seems appropriate for us in Colorado and Utah:

Take me wider than the atmosphere
Where east and west just disappear
And my heart is open, free, and clear
Take me wider, Lord

There is no limit to Your endless love
Just when I doubt it there is so much more
A rushing waterfall that overflows
It's filling canyons in my soul

Voss is one of a group of worship leaders called the “All About Worship” collective, led by Michael Farren, founder of the group “Pocket Full Of Rocks.”
Voss Howard Small
We couldn’t help but notice that Corey bears a striking resemblance to a certain Opie and Richie, aka Ron Howard.  We’ll let you figure out which photos belongs to which.  (Hint: Corey probably doesn’t own bow ties.)

Listener’s Corner- Where Do You Listen?

Dear KJOL, I'll dig up my radio and start listening again. Thanks for the reminder. God bless you!

  • Bernadette, Fruita

Thank you for such a special and cherished radio station!!!

  • Netherlee, Paonia

Just wanted you to know how much I value your ministry. I enjoy listening but only get radio while I am in my car. I appreciate all that you do. Love in Christ.

  • Holly, Gateway

We think of you everyday and I often wonder how you have had the endurance over the last 30 years to continue to persevere to fight the good fight. The programming blesses us everyday. May God bless you and yours and the station. Trusting the Lord will provide.

  • Bill, Grand Junction
