Listener Stories Encourage others by sharing your story here. Keeping Me Strong Forever Walter As I've become a wheelchair bound shut-in, I often don't see anyone for weeks at a time. WBCL IS MY REFUGE FROM THE WORLDLY. I listen 24/7. It seems that when I have need of instruction in the Word, there you are. When I need encouragement, something comes on just when I need it the most. You are a lifeline in a world that is dying. And on Sunday mornings, the praise and worship music helps me find a place to honor Him at home as I can no longer get out to a worship service. I consider you all friends, even though I haven`t met any of you. I don't know what I would do if you weren`t there. I love you guys in Christ!Strength and Support Katie I have been a Christian for about 10 years. My life had been very easy, without hardships or any real pain. A little over 6 weeks ago, I had a miscarriage. Less than a week before my first wedding anniversary, we were dealing with the absolute heartbreak of losing a baby that I was looking so forward to meeting. My husband was amazing and so supportive, but through the music on WBCL and the uplifting and encouraging voices heard on the air every day, we made it through. Music has always been a great way for me to find hope, but it is through this station that I really found myself reminded daily of the plans that God has for me and my husband. We know that this loss happened for a reason, and we look forward to someday having a baby when the time is right. On a side note, I take my 7 year old nephew to school every morning. He does not come from a Christian household and is around secular music with inappropriate lyrics every day. I always have WBCL on in the car as we wait in the carpool line, and the 3rd day of school he was singing along to the music. It made my heart swell, knowing the impact just hearing the lyrics will have on him. Thank you, WBCL!Listening in Greece Pati I am currently serving with Samaritan's Purse in Lesvos, Greece helping with aid to refugees crossing into Greece from Turkey. It was such a blessing to be able to listen to WBCL, my home radio station, while working here. Thank you and congratulations on over 40 years.Family Friendly Gretchen I love WBCL. Our children always ask to listen as well. I love the fact that I don't have to monitor what is playing or being said. Today I am listening while waiting while my husband is in surgery. I am so thankful for the music. It is definitely keeping my mind and heart focused on our great God and Healer! Thank you WBCL!A God Lead Journey Lisa We have been blessed with 6 children and 9 grandchildren. My husband and I have been faithful supporters of WBCL for years. This radio station has touched my life in so many ways I don't know where to start. One of the ways this station has impacted my life was when I heard a story a year ago about a woman in need of a kidney. At that very moment I felt Gods presence telling me to start this journey to see if I was a match for Polly. I called IU med center in Indy and they sent me one of many kits to draw blood. Unfortunately, I was not a match for Polly, but this did not stop me. I continued with every test you could think of and I never looked back. Finally, the day came and I was going to be in a paired donation of 20 people meaning 10 people would be getting a kidney including Polly. I was so excited until I got the call that I was rejected from the chain BUT Polly was still going to get her kidney- Praise God! At that point I had a choice to back out or continue with the process and find another match. I decided that God chose me for a reason and I was not giving up. The day came; they found another recipient in California that was a match. I had my surgery on 11-23-16 they sent my kidney to California and the recipient had the surgery and everything went very well. During this journey, when things got me down, I would listen to the morning show in my car on the way to Indy. I felt at peace knowing God was in control. I love what God has done in my life. WBCL, continue what you are doing! You all are doing an awesome job!
