I spent a good portion of this week in central Indiana so I could be in the WGNR studios (Anderson) for a campaign that Moody is doing in partnership with Wycliffe Bible Translators that invites Moody radio listeners to Unlock God’s Word for the Least, the Last, the Lost. So, on Wednesday and Thursday of this week, I sat in the studio (the headphones were nice; the microphone was excellent!) with various of the on-air personalities at WGNR during the drive-time shows. (Drive time for WGNR is 6-9 AM and 4-6 PM.)
As a not-so-much morning person, I did find the morning show to be a bit of a challenge — but nothing that a good cup of coffee and sheer will couldn’t overcome (at least for a couple of days). I loved seeing radio from the inside out — it has been a rather long time since I’ve been in a working radio studio.
(Hmmmm. I do have fond memories of being on morning radio at Bethel University with my friend Todd who had a regular show. He invited me to join him on air to show slides of my summer vacation. But, I digress.)
I loved getting to talk about the work that God is doing through Wycliffe and our beloved partners around the globe.
WGNR (which broadasts under 4 sets of call letters in central Indiana — I may not be saying that right) was one of 4 stations featuring this campaign this week. Next week Wycliffe will be with them in 4 others and the following week in 4 more (including WMBI in Chicago). This week — from these radio audiences — we raised over $100k for work in Panama and Peru. Praise God for expressing his generosity through people in the Hoosier Heartland as well as south Florida and the Quad Cities!!
