Now that our financial year is over, I wanted to let you know more precisely about our financial position. Our goal was $1.5 million, and we only missed it by $6,000! We received $1,494,000 from our faithful listeners, which is a new record for donations! Thank you!!! And as I mentioned on the air, thanks to careful money management, we spent less than we received, so we finished the financial year in the black.
I have always believed in sharing these kinds of details with our listening family, because you are the ones keeping this ministry going financially, and you deserve to know what’s going on behind the scenes. Thankfully, our news this year is good, but if and when we have “down” years financially, I will share that news with you as well. It’s all about transparency and accountability…I want you to know I will always shoot straight with you.
The REASON we want to be faithful with the resources you bless us with is so that we can communicate God’s love to people here in eastern Iowa who are hurting. Here’s a comment we received from Paula just last month:
“I was having a particularly terrible day as a mom of teen boys — one suffering with depression/anger issues, but continually refusing to acknowledge the problem and get help — and I heard Casting Crowns sing the chorus from “Held”. Tears first, but then peace and strength to get back up and try again.”
As we enter a new financial year with new goals yet to be reached, our prayer is that the music on Life 101.9 will continue to reach people with the hope and encouragement that can only come from God. And I believe that’s your prayer too. Your support of Life 101.9 is reaching those who need a reminder of God’s constant love and care.
If you’ve never given before, please consider joining the support team that makes this ministry possible. You can give right now by clicking this link: http://life1019.com/donate.
Thank you, and thanks for listening to Life 101.9!
Yours in Christ,
