On June 3rd, my family gathered in my 50 yr. old brother Mike's hospital room as life support was removed. He had fallen from a ladder and suffered severe head trauma. At around 10:30, his nurse came in and asked if we'd like the Christian radio station (WBCL) turned on. Then as the song "I Will Rise" by Chris Tomlin began playing, Mike drew his final breath and his heart rate dropped steadily all through the song. As we stood watching the monitor, we realized the words from the song: "I will rise when He calls my name; No more sorrow, no more pain." The presence of God was felt more in that room that night than I have ever witnessed. Over 600 people gathered for his memorial/celebration of life service. We never realized how many lives he had touched with the love of Jesus. We look forward to the day we will join Mike before the throne. God is so good.Pregnant and Scared Robin It is hard to believe it has been over ten years since I have been listening to WBCL. It was then that I found myself pregnant and just married. I was unsure that this is what I wanted and I was not in the will of the Lord. I was driving to work at the time (30 minutes) so I had lots of time to think, cry and eventually pray. It seemed when I found WBCL, I would hear a song or a word of encouragement that I needed for that day. It reminded me that God was in control and still loved me. I am ten years down the road with the same Christian man and God has blessed us with 4 children. the Lord has shown his faithfulness to us. God loved Gary and I in our straying and brought us back and has used WBCL to provide comfort and peace at the darkest days of our marriage and the fun-filled, happy days since. God bless."Turn on WBCL and let the music of heaven rain down over you" Patrick I am a minister who has served God and this great country as a soldier. God has blessed me with a great wife of 28 years and two adult children who will be with us in heaven. I served 6 years in the US Army, then 15 plus years in the automotive manufacturing industries, 10 years in youth ministry full time, and now I work bi-vocationally as a construction laborer and senior minister at Fayette Street Church of Christ in Hillsdale, MI. God is good all the time! While working in the automotive industry in Auburn, IN back in 1992, I would come out of a back breaking and tiresome day of work, just spent! I remember sitting in my broken down 1968 Chevy pickup, praying it would start and turning on the radio to this soft voice who would introduce calm music. I just sat there crying for what seemed like hours until the program ended (Night Sounds, a 30-minute show, by Bill Pierce). This went on for a year or so before they moved me to another shift. This moment of release brought to me by WBCL changed my marriage of 3 years from a marriage of selfishness, to a house built on love and understanding. So, for anyone out there who is having a terrible day, week, or life. I would say, go to your car, pray that it starts, turn on the radio to WBCL and let the music of heaven rain down over you, melting away years of pain and regret. Thank You WBCL and all who take the sacrifice of staying tuned seriously.
