You Are Loved

My 10-year-old daughter Mary and I love watching illusionists on TV

Sometimes we’ll pause the TV and replay a segment back frame by frame, trying to figure out how they did a certain trick.

Sometimes we figure it out. Sometimes we don’t. But we always enjoy watching a good magician do their act. I’ve tried learning some sleight of hand and card tricks, but I quickly realized it’s not my gift. I am horrible at it!

There is another phenomenon, however, that our team here at The Bridge (and that includes you) has been able to witness over the past 7 years.

And that’s the mystery of turning dollars into change.

Not coins, of course. But real change! Heart change. Behavioral change. Life change. Change with eternal significance!

It’s not magic – it’s the work of the Holy Spirit

God is working through the music and words shared on The Bridge 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Radio reaches places where traditional ministries can’t, in a personal manner that can pierce the heart and draw people to Jesus. In every life situation.

God is changing people like Natasha, who wrote to say The Bridge saved her life. She said the songs she hears on The Bridge “breathed life” into her as she struggled with the stresses of marriage and parenting.

People like Amy, who says “there aren’t enough words to express how much your station has affected, helped and changed my life.” And Leslie who says she is “easily discouraged and your station helps remind me that God’s got my back.”

There are thousands of examples of how God is transforming your dollars into changed lives through the ministry of The Bridge. As a non-profit organization, we rely 100% on gifts from people like you to continue.

We’re not all gifted with the talent to become masterful illusionists. Nor are we all called into full time ministry. But we are all called to be good stewards of what God has provided. Isn’t it wonderful to know that there is an effective ministry, right here at home, that is loving and serving your community? We are sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ, and we are seeing lives being changed.

Want to turn your dollars into change?

Start with a prayer. Ask God for guidance on how you can best support the ministry of The Bridge. As He leads you toward helping The Bridge meet our operating budget for the next six months, return the enclosed envelope with your gift.

If we receive your gift on or before October 5, we’ll be able to include you in our early giving fund that helps get our Fall Fundraiser off to a good start. Often times, these funds are used to encourage new listeners to become financial partners with The Bridge, so your early gift is very important.

Thank you for your prayers. Thank you for listening. And thank you for making your gift online today. No matter how you give, your gift is tax-deductible.

Join us by praying for a successful Fall Fundraiser on October 16, 17 and 18 – and more important – pray that God turns your dollars into change!

God bless you.
