I am so happy that you are in Indiana - Many years ago I started listening to WIWC (Kokomo) and have benn so happy that more Christian stations are on the radio, now.  I do love K-Love - it has the best music ! I do listen to WFRN, too - they have speakers and I need that too.
I love the Advent calendar the doors is such a neat idea.
Thanks for all you do ----

The Sharp family of the metropolis of Springport Indiana also want to welcome Lisa and Eric to Indiana!  We have been totally blessed by Father God sending amazing Christian stations to our area over the last 10 years.  And then K-Love showed up in the neighborhood (literally) almost two years ago when "someone" put a satellite on the large country radio station tower behind our house.   So now we can have K-Love and the praise that pours forth in our home, in our backyard, in our cars and on my school bus.  Thank you Jesus for blessing the work you are doing through K-Love and other Christian radio stations in our Hoosier state.  May you get all the glory and those who minister to us like Lisa and Eric get all the good!

Powerful message.  My 9 year old and I look forward to opening a new door every evening after dinner.  Tonight with this door she looked at me and said "we really do have too many presents under the tree".  My 9 year old was willing to give up her presents to someone who would get far more enjoyment out of them.  Not that she won't, but this just makes us realize, that nothing we have under that tree will change us too much.  We just moved this summer and don't have a church home yet so this is the first year we aren't doing  Operation Christmas Child.  I am going to go online to see if I can find a drop point, so we can do one this year.

I just wanted to share this poem with you.  Its very dear to my heart sense my son Steven just got recalled back to be deployed to A-stan or Iraq again.  This breaks our hearts, but we must trust God for his protection over my son.  Thank you for the support you give to our soldiers and their families.  Thats such a blessing to me and I'm very sure many many others.

A Special Christmas Poem





The embers glowed softly, and in their dim light,

I gazed round the room and I cherished the sight.

My wife was asleep, her head on my chest,

My daughter beside me, angelic in rest.



Outside the snow fell, a blanket of white,

Transforming the yard to a winter delight.



The sparkling lights in the tree I believe,

Completed the magic that was Christmas Eve.



My eyelids were heavy, my breathing was deep,

Secure and surrounded by love I would sleep.

In perfect contentment, or so it would seem,

So I slumbered, perhaps I started to dream.



The sound wasn't loud, and it wasn't too near,

But I opened my eyes when it tickled my ear.

Perhaps just a cough, I didn't quite know,



Then the sure sound of footsteps outside in the snow.



My soul gave a tremble, I struggled to hear,

And I crept to the door just to see who was near.



Standing out in the cold and the dark of the night,

A lone figure stood, his face weary and tight.



A soldier, I puzzled, some twenty years old,

Perhaps a Marine, huddled here in the cold.

Alone in the dark, he looked up and smiled,

Standing watch over me, and my wife and my child.



"What are you doing?" I asked without fear,

"Come in this moment, it's freezing out here!

Put down your pack, brush the snow from your sleeve,

You should be at home on a cold Christmas Eve!"



For barely a moment I saw his eyes shift,

Away from the cold and the snow blown in drifts..



To the window that danced with a warm fire's light

Then he sighed and he said "Its really all right,

I'm out here by choice. I'm here every night."



"It's my duty to stand at the front of the line,

That separates you from the darkest of times.



No one had to ask or beg or implore me,

I'm proud to stand here like my fathers before me.



My Gramps died at ' Pearl on a day in December,"

Then he sighed, "That's a Christmas 'Gram always remembers."

My dad stood his watch in the jungles of ' Nam ',

And now it is my turn and so, here I am.



I've not seen my own son in more than a while,

But my wife sends me pictures, he's sure got her smile.

Then he bent and he carefully pulled from his bag,

The red, white, and blue... an American flag.



I can live through the cold and the being alone,

Away from my family, my house and my home.



I can stand at my post through the rain and the sleet,

I can sleep in a foxhole with little to eat.



I can carry the weight of killing another,

Or lay down my life with my sister and brother..

Who stand at the front against any and all,

To ensure for all time that this flag will not fall."



"So go back inside," he said, "harbor no fright,

Your family is waiting and I'll be all right."

"But isn't there something I can do, at the least,

"Give you money," I asked, "or prepare you a feast?



It seems all too little for all that you've done,

For being away from your wife and your son."



Then his eye welled a tear that held no regret,

"Just tell us you love us, and never forget.



To fight for our rights back at home while we're gone,

To stand your own watch, no matter how long.

For when we come home, either standing or dead,

To know you remember we fought and we bled

Is payment enough, and with that we will trust,

That we mattered to you as you mattered to us."

What a beautiful song!  We are going to "give Christmas away" with a huge celebration out in the village we work in - in the mountains in Honduras.  Last year we had 180 kids attend - we are praying for the same or more that their lives will be touched by the real meaning of Christmas Smile

Good Day,
My name is Barry Crall and I work for The Salvation Army Lodi Shelter, and in this job I feel I'm on the front line in the war with satan. It makes my heart hard somtimes, so I went to my Pastor and he sujested that I should look at some of my worldly habits like music and T.V. So I bet myself I would make some changes and one was music. One year ago I swithed to K-love, THANK YOU it has helped fortify my daily walk . And softened my heart with the constant blessings with your station.

Wow, what a great song put where it shows the children getting the operation Christmas shoeboxes! I loved the clips! Last week we gave the children in the gypsy village the shoe boxes at the Christmas party. 60 kids got gifts!! What a blessing to bless people who wouldn't have had any gifts this Christmas Smile

I just completed 3 weeks with Operation Christmas Child as a Team Leader in the Processing Center in Boone NC location. Seeing this video simply reminds me of what an awesome experience I had, how I found staff and volunteers touched by their love for the Lord and how every day they added that love to each shoe box they touched. Approximatley 660,000 shoe boxes later the love was still there and I know there are children now receiving those boxes whose lives will be forever changed...just like mine was by being part of this years Operation Christmas Child. It is a memory that will stay with me forever and remind me daily how wonderful our Lord is...
