Ways to Respond to Needs in Haiti

stacey : October 5, 2016 1:06 pm : News, Stacey Gagne

Areas of Haiti, especially in the Southwest peninsula, were severely devastated by Hurricane Matthew.  Please prayerfully investigate what is being done by various ministries and consider how you can help.

Haiti Bible Mission:  Located in Jeremie Haiti, which was an area devastated due to the hurricane

Life Connection Mission : During this hurricane, Montrouis, Haiti is experiencing damages to property as a result of heavy winds and flooding.

Olive Tree Projects/Maison de Naissance:   Maision de Naissance, a birthing care center in Les Cayes has become an emergency shelter for several of their neighbours and expect they will have to continue housing them for a couple weeks. Maison de Naissance also has some structural damage that will eventually need to be repaired.  They are in a need of a wide spectrum of items from clothing, to food, to medications, to equipment like shovels.  Money that comes in to Olive Tree Projects for “Matthew Relief” will be used to purchase as many things on their needs list as we can, and sent via private plan from Port au Prince. For the next week they will collect funds to provide them with supplies and future financial support to Maison de Naissance can be given directly to www.globalbirthinghomefoundation.org

World Vision

Cross International

Food for the Poor 

Compassion International

Samaritan’s Purse

Mennonite Central Committee

Bethany Christian Services

* If you have a suggestion for another ministry that you know is doing hurricane relief work in country, please email contact@wjtl.com.

Found in Translation

kristi : October 3, 2016 3:52 pm : Kristi Leigh, Staff Pages

I love having a Bible app on my phone.  I like the access to a variety of devotional plans and checking in to see the Verse Of The Day.  The other morning, I opened the app and saw some brand new phrases that I never read before:

“For God is sheer beauty,

all-generous in love,

loyal always and ever.”

WOW!  I though, “I’ve grown up in the church and never heard this one before!”  What amazing phrasing!  I couldn’t believe that this verse wasn’t more popular.  I glanced at the reference and realized that it was a very familiar passage: Psalm 100:5.  In fact, this is a verse that many worship songs are rooted in–songs we play regularly on WJTL.  We usually know the verse in this wording:

“For the Lord is good and His love endures forever;

His faithfulness continues through all generations.”

Then it hit me: I left my app displaying verses in the Message Translation, when I usually read in NIV.  Just viewing the passage in a different wording can make the Bible come alive all over again.  If you need a fresh word from God, I encourage you to look up some of your favorite verses in a translation you don’t usually use.  After all, Hebrews 4:12 says “the word of God is alive and active.”  (Or, in the Message Translation: “God means what He says.  What He says goes.“)

Construction Starts at WJTL

tim : September 26, 2016 11:11 am : Staff Pages, Tim Landis

constructionstarts091916

The Vision . . . The Need!

It is an exciting time here at WJTL as construction has begun on the final phase of The Junction Center Project.  We have clearly seen God at work over the past five years as many obstacles have been overcome with the final plans exceeding what had been hoped for.

The vision is to expand and improve the ministry outreach of WJTL!  We believe that music is an important non-threatening way to reach people for Christ, many of whom would never darken the doors of a church.  Our goal is also to provide quality Christian content that supports, strengthens, and challenges you as a believer in your daily walk with God.  Ratings show that approximately 100,000 different individuals listen to WJTL for a total of 5 to 6 hours each week.  That adds up to more than 36 million listener hours per year!  That does not count the thousands more reached daily over the Internet!

The venue will be very flexible with seating that can be configured many different ways allowing for a wide range of small to medium size events.  Major artists like Chris Tomlin and TobyMac will continue to be held at larger venues but this venue will allow for a host of additional regional and national artists that deserve to be heard and supported.  The stage audio and video will be wired directly to the WJTL studios allowing for the broadcasts of live concerts both through WJTL, Facebook Live and Youtube.

Faith based theater will also be presented including an anticipated summer youth theater camp.  Current outdoor events like the  “The Kid’s Cookie Break Fest” and the “National Day of Prayer” will continue to use the whole site but be improved by the addition of this facility.  The Junction Center tent will be repositioned into the grassy area next to the Arts Center Hall and will be used as the stage cover for an outdoor amphitheater that can hold up to 6,000 people.

It will be a beautiful venue with a fresh contemporary style that utilizes many natural materials.  A custom designed audio system from Clair Brothers will mean the sound will be world class. A full forty foot wide theatrical stage will have a state-of-the-art lighting system designed by Stray Lights.  Running the length of the building will be a really cool balcony featuring a unique vantage point to see a concert.  We are really excited about the design and layout and think you will be too.

Your gift is greatly needed to help WJTL finish this building.  The cost to complete this project is slightly more than $2,500,000 of which 80% is being funding internally by WJTL/Creative Ministries through the sale of some assets and long term savings.  The remaining 20% ($500,000) though needs to come from WJTL supporters.  As you know it is a challenge each year for WJTL to meet it’s annual operating budget so it is very important that any gifts given be “over and above” what you would ordinarily give to the station.  This is a real exercise of faith for the ministry as it will be a significant challenge to meet both the current operating budget while also expanding the ministry.  (Here is a link to donate to WJTLs General Fund.)

A donor has agreed to match each and every gift until the goal is met!  This means that your gift to the Performing Arts Center will in fact be doubled!  As an additional incentive, every donor who gives more than $500 will be acknowledged on a plaque in the vestibule of the new building unless directed otherwise.  All gifts are needed both large and small if this goal is to be reached.  Please prayerfully consider how you can help.

Our Guide Through Life’s Maze

kristi : September 26, 2016 10:18 am : Kristi Leigh, Staff Pages

cornmaze

Fall has just begun, and it feels like the season in full swing already.  So many of us have been itching to get to cooler weather and its cornucopia of harvest-themed activities.  High on the list for families: corn mazes!  There are lots of options all over the listening area.  Click here for a list. Yesterday, my family and I went to Newport to visit Butcher’s Family Fun Farm.  I, personally, was happy to sit in the corn box with my son, Josiah, instead of panicking and guessing the turns through endless rows of corn stalks.

One of my biggest weaknesses is directions.  My internal compass seems to have been faulty since day one.  Needless to say, I’m not the person you want to follow into a corn maze!  If I go in, it’s gotta be with someone who I am confident can get us back out.  Life can be that way.  Some of us seem to navigate it more easily and effortlessly…but we all have a trustworthy guide.  No matter how deeply lost in “life’s corn maze” you feel, listen for God’s loving voice to help you find your way.

Isaiah 30 21
