LETTER FROM THE GM
SHARATHON 2018 "WE ARE SOWING SEEDS IN 2019"
Psalm 126:6 Those who go out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them.(NIV)
Exciting news is right around the corner! It's time for Sharathon 2018, which is scheduled early this year - for November 13-15. The Sharathon will be a time of sharing and caring... a time of believing God for another great miracle for this radio ministry... and a time of praise-giving as we join together in providing the resources necessary to carry this ministry forward into our 27th year of broadcasting. During Sharathon we'll be encouraging our many listeners to call in to support God's radio ministry. By joining together and trusting God, we can accomplish great things. God will use our radio ministry to bless, heal and change lives. If you have ever wondered why you should support NewVision FM, please take a moment to read the following testimony:
I am so thankful for the music of NewVision FM. It's a blessing in time of joy and also in the time of sorrow and grief. I experienced such an occasion with a lady resident in our nursing home who recently went home to be with the Lord. She very much enjoyed WXML, and every time I would go to visit, her radio was on - 24/7. Even when she was not in her room, the old faithful radio carried the songs and psalms of praise. The music brought joy and peace as sickness and disease riddled her body, but that did not stop the old radio from playing. Finally, the Lord took her hand and said it was time to go home. The old faithful radio was playing the songs of praise to our Lord, whom she loved so much, as she was ushered into the arms of her Savior. I couldn't think of a better testimony than to honor her memory by sharing this story."
You can help us change lives (like the testimony above) every day by participating in Sharathon in one of the following ways: First, would you join us in praying that God would touch the hearts of His people and to also provide each and every person it will take to meet our 2018-2019 broadcast need of $201,587.00.
Secondly, prayerfully consider what God would have you do. You can help make this year's Sharathon successful by praying for us. Then pray for clear direction on YOUR involvement. Perhaps this year you can sponsor a half day of broadcasting as a Day Sponsor at $250.00. Or perhaps you would like to become a member of our "One-Dollar-A-Day Ministry," or perhaps make a single gift to NewVision FM. God might lead you to be one of hundreds of Monthly Supporters who help us with a gift each and every month. One of the fastest ways to see our financial totals climb during Sharathon 2018 is through a "MATCH CHALLENGE!" If your church has not done this yet, talk to your pastor and church council and see if your church wants to issue a MATCH CHALLENGE or support the radio ministry like a missionary to a foreign country. This is a great way for YOUR church to support this radio ministry and to help NewVision FM stay on-the-air. Excitement is contagious, so please pray about becoming a MATCH CHALLENGER! For those of you that want to submit your FAITH PROMISE via our website, click on this link: SHARATHON. If you prefer to use your credit card, click on the link to our new and secure page: DONATE ONLINE. Whatever you do, large or small, it will definitely help make this Sharathon a success. Our ultimate goal is to have every listener support this radio ministry as God leads. No gift is too big or too small to be a blessing to God's ministry! Remember the story of the widow's mite in the Bible!
This radio ministry broadcasts God's message to all or part of 23 counties in northwest Ohio. You can tune into NewVision FM twenty-four-hours-a-day on all five of our stations and hear your mission dollars at work, broadcasting the message of Jesus Christ. We truly ask you to search your heart and then ask God if He is calling you to help with this radio ministry that is impacting lives all over our broadcast area. Whether your donation is large or small, any amount is greatly appreciated.
Please remember that when you call in with your FAITH PROMISE to help us with the miracle of finances that we need, don't forget to tell the operator about the miracle that you need in your life. We want to be a part of your miracle, too! We will be praying for you!
