Compassion Haitian children

Is there anything good happening in Haiti?

Compassion International is ready to help stations answer this question for listeners through a number of new resources available for "Remember Haiti with Compassion" day on January 12.  

Wess Stafford has said, "Haiti was home to one of the worst disasters of our time. Then the earthquake hit."  As the anniversary of the devastating earthquake approaches, many will be wondering -- Is it even possible to rebuild a country so ravaged by disaster and poverty?

Plan now to be a part of a special day when Christian broadcasting pauses to share hope and encouragement ...

Joni and Friends®— Glad tidings to you!

Joni group shotWe rang the sweet silver bells Wednesday as Joni and her team joined us at Ambassador for a day of yuletide jolly, merry recording, lunching and Christmas caroling!

It's always such a joy when Joni and Ken come to visit and this time was no exception. You may be dreaming of a white Christmas, but around here, we're shouting out with glee when Joni is able to come and deck our halls with her amazing spirit, beautiful voice and fast friendship.

Through the years, we all will be together, if the Lord allows...

December Babies

Birthday Gift Life Issues®I've always felt bad for the December babies, myself included.  Why?  Because our birthday presents and Christmas presents are often combined into one.  I feel especially awful for the people who share the exact birthday with Jesus for this reason!  This, of course, is a trivial thing to be sad about.  In fact, I am more joyful for the birth of Christ than anything else.  His life is the reason we are all here today.

It's my opinion that birthdays are a special time not only for the one celebrating the birthday, but also their friends and family ...

Elizabeth George's Holiday Survival Kit - Part 3

I've already received a Christmas gift - a timely gift of encouragement as Evelyn and I took a short trip up the road to hear Elizabeth George at Calvary Chapel Chino Hills.  She recently spoke to a full crowd of 1,800 women at their annual Christmas outreach.  Elizabeth's evangelistic message focused on Mary and the birth of Jesus, this indescribable gift!

It was a wonderful evening and it's our hope that you'll share Elizabeth's gift for your listeners this Christmas-her latest radio special, "A Holiday Survival Kit . . . for A Woman After God's Own Heart ...

Hosting family or friends for a meal and being able to use my Christmas dinnerware!  ~Michelle Blood


Katie Burke

Ever since I had the opportunity to help deliver shoe boxes to kids in Romania a few years ago, filling up Operation Christmas Child boxes is that much more special.  ~Katie Burke

 

Peggy Campbell

I love the lyrics of Christmas-nothing like James Taylor sweetly singing "Who sends this song upon the air, to ease the soul that's aching?  To still the cry of deep despair and heal the heart that's breaking."  Or, BeBe ...

Jim and Carol Garlow Update

Jim and Carol Garlow

Because we know so many of you have been praying for Jim and his wife Carol--we knew you'd want to hear this latest update. The Holidays can be such an incredibly joyful time, but also an incredibly difficult and painful time--especially when facing such hard life realities like those weighing on the Garlow household this season. I know Jim and Carol covet your prayers as they, in Jim's words, they "are NOT giving up.  Not at all...we are far from done fighting.  And, yes, we plan to win."

Despite all the difficult news that is coming in ...
