Dear friend of
spring is almost here, and can summer be far behind? While this is
probably the nicest time of the year, weather-wise, it wonít be long
before the summer heat sets in. And as the wildflowers wilt and the
snowbirds head back home, support for various ministries in the
Coachella Valley tends to dry up, too.
Unfortunately the listener-supported ministry of Joy 92-FM
has been going through a prolonged financial dry spell. More Ministry
Partners are needed to make up for those who have moved away in recent
years, or are otherwise unable to contribute.
not be aware that we do not ─
cannot ─ charge the
producers of the various programs that we air for the air time that they
contributions to your favorite program(s) do help them in their costs of
production and distribution. But they do not help us.
programs that you hear at 91.7 FM are heard here in the Coachella Valley
only because listeners just like you have shared in the cost of actually
broadcasting them on KHCS. You see, if these programs are
produced and distributed, but never broadcast, you couldnít hear them!
since Joy 92-FM is a non-commercial station, we cannot
sell time to advertisers for their commercials.
because we are a listener-supported ministry. Thus, if our listeners do
not contribute, we cannot continue. Itís as simple as that.
everyone receiving this letter would contribute $100 this month, we
would be able to erase our operating deficit of $50,000.
you may not be able to do that. I understand. But, please consider
this letter a request for payment for services rendered, not for a gift.
KHCS work hard to bring you Information and Inspiration, 24 hours
a day. But this is not a hobby. We have families to support and bills
to pay, just like you do. All we ask is that you do your part so that
we can continue to bring you the most uplifting and encouraging
Christian programs and music that is possible.
have not yet become a Ministry Partner by sharing financially in the
listener-supported ministry of Joy 92-FM, please pray
about contributing this month to help in our urgent budget need.
you have been a faithful partner, you have my heartfelt thanks. But,
could you send an extra amount this month? It would be greatly
Lord bless you as you contribute to help reach the Coachella Valley with
the Good News.
