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
* If you have a suggestion for another ministry that you know is doing hurricane relief work in country, please email email@example.com.
We are thankful to be able to offer our 5th Annual Kids Cookie Break Fest coming up this Saturday. We hope that all who attend are encouraged, have fun with your family and friends and are inspired to live like Jesus!
All tickets have been taken for the 10:00 am – 2:00 pm session. There is a duplicate session from 3:00 pm – 7:00 with some tickets still available until 4:00 on Thursday. Everyone attending must have their pre-reserved tickets.
You should have reserved one ticket per person attending. Your tickets indicate the time of the program you reserved your tickets for and also where to park. If your ticket says JC, then you must park at the Junction Center and if it says Roots then you must park at Roots and walk the short path through the cornfield over to the Junction Center. Signs will be posted. Handicap parking needs will be met at the Junction Center. We are thankful to have been able to open up tickets to more people this year; thanks to Root’s providing this added parking option.
Be sure to keep your meal tickets (marked Sand. or Wrap) to hand in at the Chick-fil-A booth for your meal. We plan to serve meals between 11:30 – 1:00 (10am program) and 5:00 – 6:30 (3pm program).
Please have the entry forms that are attached to your tickets filled out in advance. This allows for a quicker entry. Fill out one form per person. You will receive an artist schedule and map when you hand in your ticket.
New for this year, there is an ATM on site and it is located just inside the breezeway entrance to the garage. We do have food and beverage vendors, artist merchandise and the police dunk tank where cash would be handy. All Chick-fil-A meals must have been pre-reserved. No Chick-fil-A will be for sale on site.
Northwest EMS will provide first aid service at their vehicle. We do recommend that you also carry some bandaids, wear sunscreen and that you and your children drink plenty of water.
Thanks to our many volunteers serving to help make this free event possible and also to our Event Sponsors: Turkey Hill Dairy, FunCo, Thrivent Financial and Rockvale Outlets Lancaster. Thanks also to all of the interactive sponsors. Please encourage them and thank them for their participation!
If you or someone in your family (age 14+) would like to volunteer, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or stop by the Volunteer booth at the fest to find out if/where help is still needed!
We look forward to a great day!
At their annual convention, The Pennsylvania Association of Broadcasters (PAB) hands out awards for excellence in broadcasting in a number of categories.
WJTL was pleased to be chosen as recipients of the PAB Excellence in Broadcasting Award 2016 for Outstanding Station Sponsored Event for The Kids Cookie Break Fest 2015. Lisa Landis and Stacey Gagne attended the Gold Medal Dinner and Awards Ceremony at The Hershey Hotel as Lisa accepted the award on behalf of WJTL.
Tomorrow night’s National Day of Prayer Event scheduled for The Junction Center has been moved indoors due to weather. The new location will be the Lancaster County Convention Center, 28 South Queen Street in Downtown Lancaster. The program will feature prayer by Calvary Church’s Beau Eckert, worship by Matt Goss Band and a 110 voice community choir and worship and prayer with Michael W. Smith. Doors will open at 4:30pm. The program begins at 5:45pm. More Info at http://lancasterndp.com/
Due to the rain, the City Youth Edition for National Day of Prayer has now been moved to Teen Haven at 205 South Queen Street in Lancaster. The event that was to be held at The Junction Center this evening has been moved to Crossway Church 330 Barbara Street in Millersville. Both events are taking place from 7:00 to 8:30 pm.
Has radio impacted your life? It has significantly impacted mine, and that is why I am thrilled that WJTL is partnering with the Far East Broadcasting Company (FEBC) for the Give-A-Radio Project.
FEBC has the motto “Christ to the World By Radio” and is reaching into 40 countries with 770 hours of programming in 100 languages each day broadcasting the life-changing Word of God. They reach into areas where it’s difficult for missionaries to go.
Our goal is to provide 400 radios, which will help FEBC go to the hardest-to-reach places. $30 provides one radio, and every radio you give has the potential to reach 25 people with the Gospel. Right now, a generous donor is even matching every donation so if we reach our goal that would be 800 radios provided!
I invite you to join our Give-A-Radio Project with Far East Broadcasting Company. To join our Give-A-Radio Project call 877-532-2998 or give online at GiveARadio.org

STACEY GAGNE – As we’re getting ready for Kids Cookie Break Fest here at The Junction Center this weekend, I am once again reminded what a great and involved community we have here.
We have super talented artists and educators who love to tell kids and families about Jesus and have fun while doing it!
Some phenomenal sponsors from local business and non-profit organizations are investing their finances, products and time to make this event happen while also being involved year round here at WJTL and in the community. (special thanks to Funco Entertainment, Turkey Hill Dairy, Thrivent Financial, SVPS, J. Garber Enterprises, Chick-fil-A Lancaster, Herr’s Snacks, Oregon Dairy, Dutch Valley Food Distributors and Alan Manufacturing)
Our amazing volunteers come out and help us time and time again … some of whom have been a part of the team for decades!
We are also certain that there are listeners who are praying, giving and enthusiastically encouraging us as all the time as we broadcast, go live into the community and host events here at The Junction Center.
Wow and Thank You.
Christ. Community Music.
STACEY GAGNE- If you’re like me, you are still coming to terms with the fact that August is here. But believe it or not; it’s Back to School season and just a few short weeks from Kids Cookie Break Fest 2015
KCB Fest has become a favorite annual event here at the Junction Center. This one day festival being held on August 29th is a big hit with Kids Cookie Break fans and and also a great opportunity for families to reach out to neighbors and friends with kids under 12. Music, games, inflatables, firetrucks, petting zoo, pedal cars, barrel train rides, and more are all offered for free during morning and afternoon sessions from 10am-2pm and 3pm-7pm.
Would you consider joining us and being part of the volunteer team this year? We need help staffing all the fun areas of the festival. There are a variety of jobs from parking and stage crew to ticket taking and selling merchandise or snacks. Maybe you could help with a carnival game or drive a barrel train, pick up trash or help on stage crew. Please consider joining us on this fun day. Check out our volunteer page and sign up to be a part of the team.
