STACEY GAGNE – This morning we received an email from a listener who heard a message at just the right time… at the wrong time. God is so good. We asked permission to share it because I am quite sure this will bless and encourage more people than just our staff here.
“Hi, all. Just wanted to tell you an interesting experience I had yesterday morning (around 6:25 AM) while listening to WJTL on my way to work. Maybe I should mention that in late July, while spending some days at the shore, the Lord had brought a sweet devotional based on Romans 15:13 to my attention, re: hope. I tucked that verse away in my heart, not realizing that within a few days I would so need it. On the way home I had a minor accident that resulted in a severe ankle sprain and bone break. Not the end of the world, for sure, but it’s been a difficult time of mending, and feeling physically so short of normal. Added to that, my husband lost a good job, and it took us by surprise. Again, trying to cling to Romans 15:13. But I admit, I’ve struggled, and wondered at times where He is in all of it. Though I KNOW He is with us, it hasn’t always felt that way when my fears creep in, drowning out the hope He wants to keep on giving and growing in me. I was driving to work on Rt. 72 yesterday, and right around the spot when I usually hear The Bible Experience, I was hearing the voice of Joni Tada, and I listened not thinking that this was not the usual daily segment. But sure enough, her message on HOPE struck right into my frail heart, and when she mentioned Rom. 15:13, tears ran down my cheeks because it was one of those sweet, personal touches from Him that are so timely, so personal, it’s hard to fathom. And I was still marveling when the announcer mentioned that the Tada message was a mistake and “how did that happen???!!!” I had to laugh out loud, and then wonder how many others out there really needed to hear the wrong message, the one not supposed to be airing! Truly, if I hadn’t been on my way to work I think I would have tried to call, it was just that funny/amazing to me. Just wanted to let you know that God so often uses your station to reach and encourage His wondering, wandering people.
Radio Friend Phil – Greetings! It’s time for this week’s New Tunes at 9 Roundup: New Tunes at 9, one-hour of new and emerging music, weeknights at 9 p.m. on WJTL. This week for the roundup, I recommend something a little bit different; something new and exciting by a 13-member group of family and friends called the Sing Team! It was WJTL’s Kristi Leigh, host of the praise and worship show, Sunday mornings on WJTL, who excitedly said to me one day, “Phil, have you heard about a group called “The Sing Team?” I responded by simply saying, “No, I have not.” Well, as it turns out, The Sing Team is an extension of the group’s ministry at Mars Hill Church Ballard, Seattle. The ensemble currently leads worship at Mars Hill, and Brian Eichelberger, one of the primary songwriters at Mars Hill, serves as lead singer. The music of The Sing Team can only be described as joyous, uplifting and celebratory; their songs are filled with hand-clapping, foot-stomping, and beautiful harmonies. The group themselves actually state that they are equally influenced by the Detroit/Motown sound as they are by Jim Henson’s Muppets. For more on The Sing Team! go to http://marshill.bandcamp.com/album/oh-great-is-our-god; you’ll find the Mars Hill blog, meet the Sing Team and listen to music off the band’s latest, 5-song EP, “Oh! Great Is Our God!” Finally, congratulations to TobyMac, who becomes just the third Christian artist to have a new project (“Eye On It”) debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200! The last Christian artist on the WJTL playlist to bow at No. 1 was Bob Carlisle; his 1996 project, “Shades of Grace,” propelled by his smash hit “Butterfly Kisses,” entered at the top of the Billboard chart back in June of 1997! http://tobymac.com/ TobyMac is coming to town for a concert at the Giant Center in Hershey, on Sunday, December 9.

JOHN SHIRK – From Isaiah 6:8.
The prophet said, “Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, ‘Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?’ And I said, ‘Here am I. Send me!”
God’s people have responded to God’s call differently. Jonah heard God’s call and tried to hide from God. The reason for this was that he lacked concern for the people God wanted him to confront. Moses heard God’s call and made excuses as to why he was not the right man for the job. He was focused on his personal limitations. Isaiah responded to God’s call by making himself available to the Lord for His service. He was focused on the worthiness and holiness of the LORD. This is the focus that will give us a willing heart to carry out what God wants us to do.
Worship leads us to an awareness of God’s wisdom to guide us in His will, and His strength to carry us through.
Saying “yes” to God’s opportunities is a vital sign of a changed life in the Year of Transformation.
Radio Friend Phil – Check out the City Harmonic’s new video for “Mountaintop.” Uniquely filmed in one continuous take on location near their hometown of Hamilton, ON. Canada, “Mountaintop” also incorporates videos sent to them by fans and artists from all around the world, including clips from Michael Tait (Newsboys), and Aaron Gillespie. (All 3 artists are coming to town, too. Click here http://thecityharmonic.com/ for the video, and here http://cmilive.com/ for details on all of the upcoming concerts!) Happy viewing!
Lisa Landis – This Thursday I travel to Kenya to report on the community of Alendu with Rafiki Africa. Rafiki Africa works together with African communities to provide practical resources, training, real and lasting hope, dignity, encouragement, spiritual growth and guidance. It’s been two years since I visited Africa. My last trip was with Eastern Mennonite Missions in April of 2010. Before I travel on Thursday, I wanted to update you on the Guinea-Bissau school project in Western Africa. Here is a quick video of the progress:
The walls are up and the roof is on the school building in Catel, Guinea-Bissau, that WJTL listeners so generously contributed to in 2010-2011. EMM worker Beryl Forester said all the funds that were raised have been used – about $11,000.
Beryl estimates that another $5,000 would cover the cost of plastering both the inside and the outside of the school, pouring the concrete floors, putting in windows and doors, and painting the building. Of course, furnishings like desks and benches would also be helpful; making or purchasing them would likely cost an additional $3,000. This building will have four classrooms, each accommodating 30 students, 120 per session. There are two sessions per day.
There’s still a lot to be done! Catel has one of the worst educational situations in the region. Most of the teachers do not receive a salary so classes are quite irregular and the instructional level is insufficient. Sadly, many of the students who go through the program still can’t read or write when they finish.
But there’s also reason to hope! A man who is a native of Catel will soon complete his teacher’s certificate and Beryl reports that he has a dream to return to Catel to help create an effective school environment here.
Another new project in Guinea-Bissau
Another exciting possibility for the village is the prospect of getting a cashew processing project up and running. EMM is raising funds through a special Faithfunder campaign to run a pilot project. This would mean villagers could process their cashews in the country rather than shipping them to India for processing, which is what they do now. Processing the nuts locally, and establishing trade relationships directly with buyers, means the communities that grow the cashews also get the jobs and retain more of the profits. The community could see long-term economic development.
You can be part of this project, too. You can even get tasty cashew nuts in exchange for supporting it! But it’s only running until October 12. Go to www.emm.org/cashew and find out:
- Why is EMM processing cashews in Guinea-Bissau?
- What is Faithfunder?
- How can people help?
JOHN SHIRK – From John 8, verses 10 and 11.
Jesus asked a woman caught in adultery, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?”
“No one, sir”, she said.
“Then neither do I condemn you. Go, now and leave your life of sin.”
This woman must have thought her life was coming to an end as her hidden sin of adultery was exposed in public. The religious leaders used this opportunity to try to trap Jesus. Their main goal was not to find fault with the woman, but Jesus. They said to Jesus, “The Law of Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?”
Jesus responds by writing on the ground, and then saying, “If any of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.”
No one threw a stone at her. The woman was spared the death penalty. Jesus was offering her a pardon from her past, and freedom for her future. In a world of sin, Jesus teaches us to abstain from finger-pointing blame and to confront sin with grace. The evidence of our sin gives us no platform to condemn another person. Just like with the woman caught in adultery, the forgiveness Jesus offers is an opportunity to turn from our sin and follow Him with a pure heart. Isaiah 30:15 says, “In repentance and rest is your salvation.”
Repentance is a vital sign of a changed life in the Year of Transformation.
