Positive Life Radio Listeners Stand in the Gap

More than 300 Positive Life Radio listeners pledged $40,000 during a three-and-a-half hour special fund-raising broadcast on Jan. 28.

Like many other Christian ministries, Positive Life Radio has felt the economic downturn. Over the past six months the radio network has seen a growing gap between donations and expenses. The support will help close a portion of the shortfall, allowing the music and blessings to continue for more than 85,000 listeners.

"It was an amazing and overwhelming show of support," says Kevin Krueger, Positive Life Radio's afternoon host, "one we'll remember for a long time. What an amazing God-size blessing. We hesitated at first but we knew we had to act—and quickly. Karen's (not her real name) e-mail reminded us why we need to do all we can to keep Positive Life Radio strong—even if it meant having an emergency on-air fundraiser."

Karen writes: "I got in my car after my first mammogram since going through breast cancer this past year and heard the song 'Praise You in This Storm.' I had gone through two surgeries, chemo and radiation, and a flood of unexpected emotions swept over me when I went in for the mammogram. The song was a reminder I have gone through the storm and I know He was there with me. Thank you for your ministry."

Positive Life Radio shares Jesus Christ with people through a network of partner radio stations and translators around the Inland Northwest serving Yakima, Wenatchee, Spokane, Tri-Cities, Walla Walla, Lewiston-Clarkston and many more communities. Its netcast is available worldwide at www.plr.org.
