With excitement in the air, multiple phones ringing, and passionate volunteers, a two-day Sharathon was held in Cary, NC to raise funds to cover the transmitter upgrade project for Guam.
Partnering with Moody Radio stations in three major cities (Cleveland, OH, Chattanooga, TN, Tampa, FL) and KCBI-FM in Dallas, TX, the "Love Asia by Radio" sharathon was a resounding success. During the two-day campaign, 2,577 calls were fielded by volunteers at the Cary, NC call center and over $270,000 was received in gifts and pledges. This combined with previous gifts, means that we are well on the way to paying for the Thompson transmitters and the upgrading expenses. What a great and mighty God we serve Who provides in abundance!
