It’s A New Record!

record-breakerIt’s now official: you set a new record for giving during our 2015 Radiothon pledge drive! The pledge started off well as a new record was set for giving on Day 1. After the fast start, Day 2 didn’t live up to past expectations and we fell behind the pace needed to exceed last year’s giving total. Determined as ever and not a bit concerned we forged ahead on Day 3, the final day. A steady pace of phone calls, online donations and studio visits by listeners who dropped off checks lifted our spirits as Day 3 progressed, and after the dust cleared from the normal last minute rush to take pledges, new records were set for giving on a single day and total giving!

The final tally for the 2015 Radiothon stands at $29,983. This is 12% more than last year and tantalizingly close to our $30,000 goal!

From all of us at Holy Family Radio – Thank you so much for your support!

Robert Rogers to Speak in Glandorf

Robert RogersAll are invited to St John the Baptist church in Glandorf, OH to hear inspirational speaker Robert Rogers. The event is scheduled for Monday, April 13, 2015 at 7:00pm.

In August 2003, Robert experienced a tragedy of Biblical proportions when his precious wife and all four children died in a flash flood in Kansas late one Saturday night. After 8 years as a father, nearly 12 years as a husband, and 13 years as an electrical engineer, Robert’s life completely changed on their way home from a wedding in Wichita when a six-foot wall of water inundated their van, sweeping them off the highway in the darkness and into the deluge.

Soon after, Robert resigned from his engineering career and answered the call to minister and share God’s amazing grace and faith that brought him through that horrific ordeal. Now he teaches others to KNOW GOD and Live a Life of No Regrets with his words and original music at the piano
