As I sit to write the first article of a brand new year, I am very excited for the opportunity to do so. What an honor it is to share the Father’s heart with our NewVision FM Family. As we look to a new year together, I think you will agree, 2020 was certainly challenging. A year unlike anything most of us have ever experienced. For us at NewVision FM, it was a year of loss and also filled with blessings!
Thank you so much to those of you who served God’s radio ministry in any capacity during the previous year, and to those of you since the very beginning. Thank you to those who prayed and financially supported this radio station which has blessed and changed innumerable lives. Thank you for the notes of encouragement and words of prophecy over the last twelve months as well. As we reflect back on the previous year, we have certainly witnessed the goodness and generosity of God. We marvel at all He has accomplished this past year through the hearts of you, our listeners.
Sharathon 2020 was certainly no exception.
We ended Sharathon 2020 with $126,480.00 toward our budget goal. Many of our foundation supporters, staff and volunteers have shared that Sharathon 2020 was one of the most exciting Sharathons they can recall. We didn’t make our goal of $225,000. In fact, we missed it by $98,000 plus. But just as you have been encouraged during these challenging times through Christian radio, we are equally encouraged when we hear from you. We heard testimony after testimony of how God is blessing you through NewVision FM during the pandemic. Friends, if you were not able to tune in and be an instrumental part of Sharathon 2020, you can still do so by visiting our brand new website: www.newvision.fm and click on the donate button from any page. There is still opportunity to join our 31 new friends and 228 returning supporters who have said they are willing to partner with us for 2021 and beyond! We sincerely THANK you for your obedience to the Holy Spirit.
What an honor it was to meet John! I’m so thankful to the Holy Spirit for leading and guiding me. The Bible says the testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of Prophecy (Rev. 19:10). God orders our steps, and though sometimes our destination does seems long, He will light our path and allow us to be carriers of His light. Friends, I can’t take one step without Jesus – The Light of the world!
Matt 5:13-14 – You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand and it gives light to all who are in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men so that they see your good works (which is Jesus) and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
By now, you likely will have boxed up all of the Christmas decorations and forgotten about all of the gifts you received. But please don’t forget the GREATEST GIFT given to us by our Heavenly Father – the gift of Jesus Christ. There has never been a greater gift, nor will there ever be in the future! Thank you for stepping into 2021 with us – with new opportunity and with great expectation for our 28th broadcast year. To God be the glory!
From the staff and management of New Vision FM, have a wonderful and blessed New Year!
