This year’s Spring Friendship Drive goal was $75,000.00 for our Equipment Campaign. At the close of the Spring Friendship Drive, we had faith promises in the amount of $41,082. Callers included 18 new and 143 repeating friends. If you were listening during the three days, you know what a roller coaster ride we were on. One moment we were jubilant, laughing and praising the Lord. The next moment there were tears in our eyes from testimonies that were shared by our listeners on how our radio ministry touched or changed their life or someone else’s life!

This is what the Friendship Drive is all about – keeping the ministry on the air and touching lives on a daily basis. YOU, our faithful listeners, partnering with God, make this ministry possible. I wish each of you could help answer our phones. You would hear so many wonderful testimonies that our listeners share with us.

On behalf of the Board of Directors and staff, we thank God for your prayerful and financial support. Not only will these finances help with the purchase of the equipment, but will also help us broadcast the gospel in Northwest Ohio and all over the world through the Internet streaming. May God bless you just as you have blessed His ministry.

This year during our Friendship Drive, we made a change to our Grand Prize Giveaway. Due to the increase of fuel prices and cost of living, we offered two gift cards for food and fuel which totalled $400 to anyone who made a Faith Promise.

Ron Bosworth from Nevada won the gift cards, but chose to donate them back to the ministry, so we had another drawing. Congratulations goes to Mary Beth Stinehelfer from Upper Sandusky for winning our Grand Prize Giveaway.
