Christian Radio in Blair

Welcome to the month of December, a month of miracles as we continue in a thankful spirit to celebrate the birth of our Lord. I’m wowed by the fact that another year is almost in the history books. God has sustained us and we are thankful.

With the excitement in my family life in November, I am behind in many areas, including sharing this testimony: As you may know, Blair Healing Rooms has FCC approval to erect an antenna / start a low power FM radio station. How we started this journey a few years back was a miracle all on its own. Once we received FCC approval we started planning meetings, determined the program outline and looked at the items needed to move from a dream to a reality. Life happened, distractions came but the desire never left.

We believe God let us know in November that He wants the radio station up now. Why do we believe this? In November the schedule has been rather – let’s just call it interesting – with balancing trips to the hospital and office and volunteers trying to fill in where they could. We met new people and explored ideas to see if they were from God.

One Saturday as three volunteers were visiting in the prayer room after a rather hectic week, a gentleman came in asking about the radio station. Interesting – that doesn’t happen often – perhaps he was an interested parent who had a teen that might want to participate?  Well not quite. kytflp_small

“God sent me to help launch the radio station.”

After picking my chin up off the floor we asked to learn a bit more. This gentlemen is experienced in radio station management, has an engineer ready to hit the ground running and came in from out of town – like 70 miles out of town. It had to be God.

So, while we were looking at many opportunities for populations from 12 to 120, God highlighted the area He wants us to focus on: Christian radio broadcasting in Blair.

The cost profile hasn’t changed – it’s still a cost of $5,000 to obtain the equipment and the equipment needs to be ordered now in order to meet FCC deadlines, so we’re asking for your prayers. The two largest equipment costs are the transmitter and the Emergency Alert System (EAS). Our inquiries to radio stations thus far have not yielded a radio station we can partner with so we will need our own EAS system with a cost of $2,500.

Again, our request today is for your prayers. We know if God is going to send someone with years of experience to get us up and running, He also knows where the funds are coming from for the radio station launch and ongoing operations.

Please pray for:

  • #1 – God will be glorified as His name is transmitted through the airwaves of our community.
  • FCC requirements will be fulfilled in a timely manner and any change applications will be expedited and approved.
  • Funding for purchase or quick donation of needed equipment
  • Right pricing structure for ministry broadcast opportunities (Sunday church services / 15 min daily or weekly broadcasts, etc)
  • Right blend of local music and ministries
  • Right Spirit and discernment

Donations are being accepted at The Happening, 231 S. 9th Street, Blair, Nebraska, 68008 and on our website.

God highlighted something He wants completed.  Thank you for praying that we will move forward in everything He has for us, for our community, and for our region.

There’s still time to make a difference!

We consider 2015 quite successful as our new home was renovated, House of Prayer activities commenced, Clothed To Succeed expanded to serve those undergoing treatment for critical illness, and tutoring and education programs were launched including partnerships with Goodwill Industries Employment READY and Joseph’s Coat’s Cooking Matters.

With your help we’ll build on Clothed to Succeeds educational programs adding opportunities like English as a Second Language and local GED reviews and tests.  We’ll expand House of Prayer offerings and launch BURN 24-7 events and more to add opportunities for the local body of Christ to build community in 2016.

Don’t forget to make your 2015 tax-deductible donation by midnight on December 31st to help Blair Healing Rooms/HOP and Clothed to Succeed meet our year-end fundraising goal of $25,000.

Thank you for your support in 2015.  Here’s to a glorious 2016!

God’s Blessing,
Kelly & The Blair Healing Rooms / Clothed To Succeed team

Merry, Merry Christmas

But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. – Galatians 4:4-5 ESV

May the wonder of Jesus’ birth and the promises fulfilled by the newborn King fill you afresh with joy and hope this Christmas season.

Merry Christmas from Blair Healing Rooms and Clothed To Succeed

We need your help…

Earlier this month the Blair Healing Rooms suffered a setback when a storm blew through Washington County.  A day that started with such promise as Blair Healing Rooms opened their doors in Omaha to pray at the Cross Training Center, ended with our current Blair location flooded days before the planned launch of the new Clothed To Succeed showroom, business incubator and meeting space.

In the weeks since the storm we’ve watched as the weaknesses of the building were exposed and income opportunities lost as fixtures, furniture, surfaces and supplies were damaged while bills continued to arrive.

Blair Healing Rooms needs your help to move forward. Our dreams of a prayer house for the united body of Christ have not died. The storm did not stop the prayer, nor will it stop the praise and worship and the hand outstretched to help others. It did set us back in our ability to welcome people to a safe place in Blair to receive prayer, encouragement, edification and practical needs fulfilled.

Nothing is too great for our God. He will turn this situation around, and He will use people like you to do it. Won’t you help us reach others with love of Jesus? Give your best gift today and help Blair Healing Rooms continue to minister God’s love and healing power to body, soul and spirit through prayer.

Please, won’t you make an online donation today and help us rebuild before the Blair Christmas in July event?
