From the Delta…

The Father’s Love

“And he arose and came to his father. But when he was still a great way off, his father saw him and had compassion, and ran and fell on his neck and kissed him.” Luke 15:20 is a beautiful verse in the Bible. No matter how long people have been in the far country of sin, when they come home, the Father runs to them with a heart filled with compassion.  He welcomes them back as  full  sons and daughters. He rejoices and celebrates their return! What a beautiful picture of the love of God for his children!   – Charles Horton, Greenville, MS

One Family’s Trials in Hawaii

Since our early days of syndication, the Facklams in Hawaii have gathered around the radio on Sunday mornings to listen to our broadcast. They are among the many of our “friends whom we’ve never met.”  Christmas is but one of the several times in the year that we communicate either by email, letter, or an occasional phone call.

Recently, we received word that Andy, the husband and father, had finally said “Yes” to the Lord as he was baptized into Christ the previous Monday. The following Sunday, he died after a long bout with cancer. His courageous wife found joy and consolation in both his obedience to Christ and the cessation of his suffering.

That same week, and before the planned funeral, volcanic action on the Big Island forced this new widow and her two teenage sons to leave their home and join hundreds more at an evacuation center.  At latest word, she and her boys had no idea as to when they could return, or even whether they still have a house and belongings.

We are requesting that all our browsers place Christy, Jonathan, and Antonio on your prayer list.

Christian & Patriot Goes Home

Sara Turnage of Enterprise, Alabama died May 15th.  She served as a secretary for the armed forces in Japan, Korea, and the U.S. She was retired from civil service at Fort Rucker and was one of the most beloved members of the College Avenue Church of Christ.  A Power & the Glory listener from the outset of our broadcast, family members say she would turn her radio on and up 30 minutes before the program came on.  We’ve always appreciated Sara’s support in more ways than one.

Another Listener Will Be Missed

As a religious broadcaster, we have made many friends whom we’ve never met. A case in point was Johnny Conway in Nebraska. We conversed with her by phone, email, and letter over the years.  She was a great encourager and generous disciple. Johnny went home to be with the Lord several weeks ago.  She was 96.

Here We Grow Again!

Power & the Glory is now heard on WHLF-FM 95.3 in South Boston, Virginia.  The broadcast is sponsored by the South Boston Church of Christ where Doug Bowen is the minister. P&G airs at 9:30 a.m. each Sunday.  WHLF serves all of Halifax County and gets high ratings for its music format, local news, and community involvement.  Nick Long is the station manager.

Literally Coast to Coast

With the addition of WHLF in South Boston, Virginia, we are literally “coast to coast.”  We are heard on 15 stations from San Francisco, California to South Boston, Virginia.
