A Message from WHCF President, Tom Obey
Dear Listeners and Supporters;
I want to extend a thank you to everyone who made the movie “I Can Only Imagine” successful in our area. When I investigated why it was not scheduled to be shown locally, I was informed by the theater owner that it did not rate high enough for a local showing. He said that people tend not to attend the “good” movies. That was very sad to hear. The staff & I believed we should step up and rent the theater for three showings to assure it was profitable for the theater. I was amazed that we sold those tickets in just a few hours. And, of course, you know the rest of the story. A Christian movie was a huge success. For me, it shows the power of influence. I am sure many who saw this film were blessed by this story of forgiveness, repentance, and grace. If you haven’t seen it we would encourage you to.
We will continue to look for opportunities to work with local theaters to make sure these movies are available for you. The risk was great for us as we bought 400 tickets (no profit to us). If people had not purchased them, we would have lost almost $2,000. Please pray, as we look for areas where we can continue to promote the Gospel and Christ’s message of love and forgiveness.
The calendar says spring is here, so we will be featuring Christian camps the first two weeks of May. This is a great opportunity for some young people to receive a “free” week at one of the local Christian camps throughout our area. Be listening April 30th –May 10th at 7:00 AM as Penny and I interview camp directors from Augusta to Presque Isle.
We are so thankful for your support. Please remember to pray for WHCF daily as we broadcast throughout the world through our internet service. I hope you have downloaded our free “NEW” app so you are able to catch your favorite programs wherever you are.
God Bless You!
