Letter from the General Manager
SHARATHON 2013 REPORT
Sharathon each year is always a roller-coaster ride-- we pray, we laugh, we cry, we rejoice, and sometimes itís all at the same time! We start on our checklist in August and we really donít finish with Sharathon until all of our gifts are in the mail, all of our ďthank youĒ letters have been sent, and every phone call returned. Many times itís December before we can close the books on Sharathon.
Each year Sharathon is different. I always encourage the staff to be prayed-up because we know Satan will be attacking in some way. This year, we lost one of our four power supplies in the main transmitter. That is a $5,000.00 expense that wasnít in the budget-- nor were we expecting it. However, even with reduced power, we kept right on with Sharathon!
We didnít make our goal of $200,000.00 which we truly needed. We ended Sharathon Saturday night with a total of $133,628.00. Therefore, we missed our goal by $66,372.00. THATíS A BUNCH! However, we must have faith in God that He will meet our needs, just like each of you.
The Word of God says, ďThen as He entered a certain village, there met Him ten men who were lepers, who stood afar off. 13 And they lifted up their voices and said, ďJesus, Master, have mercy on us!Ē 14 So when He saw them, He said to them, ďGo, show yourselves to the priests.Ē And so it was that as they went, they were cleansed. 15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, returned, and with a loud voice glorified God, 16 and fell down on his face at His feet, giving Him thanks... (Luke 17:12-16)Ē
The important part of this text is where it says, ďas they went they were cleansed (healed).Ē The lepers didnít get their miracle right away. They received their miracle as they went! Just because we didnít make our goal on the last hour of Sharathon-- it doesnít mean that God isnít going to supply our need. We must use our faith that as we go into the months ahead, God will provide the miracle of $66,372.00 that we still need!
Iím still praying that many of our new listeners who have never supported Godís radio ministry before will join the NewVision FM Family and help us keep this ministry on-the-air.
