10 - The number of years Christian radio stations across the U.S. have partnered with HCJB Global to send fixed-tuned, solar-powered radios worldwide.

27,000 - The number of people who have received a radio from HCJB Global.  "These radios go to prisoners, people in remote areas who don't have access to electricity, and poor people who can't afford radios or the batteries to operate them," explains Heide Jones, the mission's station relations director. "They're a great thing to give to people who've never heard the gospel.  It's almost like sending a missionary into a ...

When You Have Nothing to Give

Foot massager?  Knife sharpener?  iTunes gift card?

When You Have Nothing to GiveIt's challenging when you're wondering what to give the person who has everything - but, what do you give when you have nothing?"  That's the question Pete Briscoe will tackle in a special message coming up on "Telling the Truth" - What Do You Give When You Have Nothing to Give.  I can't help but wonder that many listeners will relate to having "nothing" in this trying economic time.

Helping the Least of These

This past weekend I saw the movie The Blind Side, which depicts the real-life story of one practically-homeless teenager and the family that takes him in.  It's a great film in every way and one I expected to enjoy.  But what I didn't expect was how much it would convict me.

While the movie only touched briefly on the teenager's homelessness, it had me thinking about the number of children (and adults) that will be living on the streets, or in a shelter, this Christmas season.  I may not have an abundance of resources, but I knew ...

RadioYesterday after meeting with two men from a church here in SoCal about a radio program for their pastor, we were taken back by their incredible personal stories.

Driving in his car to a business appointment, he heard a hymn on the radio, a kind of music he was unaccustomed to hearing. After the hymn, the speaker talked about Jesus Christ and what it means to know Him personally. 

Intrigued, he listened again the next ...

Choose Gratitude

Nancy Leigh DeMoss says, "undeniable guilt plus undeserved grace should equal unbridled gratitude.  Is the gratitude that flows out of your life as abounding as the grace that has flowed into your life?"

Watch this special message from Nancy on-site at the ancient ruins of Colosse as she talks about Paul’s letter to Colossians and having a heart of gratitude.

Nancy and the team at Revive Our Hearts are giving thanks for the amazing ways the Lord worked in the hearts of 1,150 tweens, moms, grandmothers and mentors at the "Pure in Heart" Conference held recently in the ...

A Reason To Be Thankful!

Family Thanksgiving MealAs we head to spend time with our family and friends, let us all remember that we have very good reason to be thankful - Christ has come! I'll be heading to Korea to see my aging grandparents.  Although their body may be failing them, I find myself always coming away rejoicing with them as they bear witness to Christ's love in their lives.  My grandparents are a prime example of a couple who, regardless their situation, give thanks.

The crew on the Africa Mercy also have a lot to be thankful for this year.  Mercy Ships® has completed ...
