The worship leader caught wind that I played, and he and the pastor asked me to play. Chris, the leader, told me the worship team plays a lot of songs I really wasn't familiar with and he told me a lot of them are on WBCL. I started listening to WBCL and started playing at church. Chris and I became very good friends. Through his prompting me to use my gift for God and listening to Christian radio, my whole Christian walk improved 100-fold! On a Sunday in late January three years ago, Chris met with the team as we always did before church to discuss songs, etc. He wasn't feeling well but wanted to sing anyways. We closed out the service with Matt Redman’s "10,000 Reasons" and the final verse seemed so strong from Chris. "And on that day when my strength is failing, The end draws near and my time has come, Still, my soul will sing Your praise unending, Ten thousand years and then forevermore. Forevermore." On Tuesday at around 2:30 am, his wife calls me and said Chris is really sick and she has taken him to ER. I thought "well ok he'll be fine." I went out to be with them. He was looking bad and in a lot of pain. We were having a bad snowstorm and they couldn't life-flight him to Fort Wayne so they drove him and I followed with his wife. A couple days later, Chris was gone at 52 years old! Without his prompting I would have never started my constant listening to WBCL. Driving and Alexa, WBCL is on.WBCL is a light in our lives Carol S My husband of 50 years and I have been listening to WBCL for many, many years. God brought to my mind that listening to the worship songs, your words of encouragement, your prayers for all of us, everything about all of you and WBCL being completely safe and based on God, it builds us up 24/7. It reminded me that in being faithful to listening and you being faithful to all of us also prepares us for when the storms of life come in. We may not be going through something right at this time, but we all know based on God's word - "in this world we will have troubles." WBCL prepares us to fight our battles with worship songs and prayer. August 31 was our 50th wedding anniversary, but we were not able to celebrate because my husband Mark was in the hospital awaiting bypass surgery. His surgery came with many complications. His Doctors told us after his second heart surgery in one day, his heart was sicker than they ever thought. He was given 1-2% chance of surviving. My family, church family, friends, and I started sending out prayer requests to anyone and everyone. We kept repeating "He will not die, he WILL live." God heard and answered our prayers. Mark is now doing cardiac/rehab and is expected to make a full recovery. It was ALL because of fervent prayers and the grace of our God who is THE miracle worker. We were blessed by the truest miracle we have ever experienced. Thank you WBCL for being a light of God into all our lives! The Joy only God can bring Karen I I listen to WBCL all the way in Ottawa, Canada! I grew up with Christian music always playing in the house, but I lost touch with God. I stumbled across your radio station one day when my heart was hurting for Him. WBCL has turned my life around! You have given me and my family the JOY again of the love and hope that God can bring! My 4 children and husband have this station on in the house all the time. I share your station with the people I work with, my nieces and nephews all over Canada, and my sister in Alabama now plays your station at work to share with her co-workers! Thank you for spreading God’s love! I really can hear Him working through all of you each day!! Thank you WBCL.
