To those who invested in 96five this June Appeal – thank you! You are enabling a message of hope and life to people who desperately need to hear it across Brisbane and beyond.
Your gift is already at work reaching many people with the hope of Jesus through uplifting music and inspiring messages in their homes, cars, workplaces and more. As you know, hearing that message of hope – especially when you’re struggling with life’s challenges – makes a world of difference.
How many people? Tens of thousands each and every day! People who have shared their stories of how 96five has impacted their day:
“Thanks for the antics, and light-hearted conversation that smooths over the harshness of life. Thanks for the genuine care you show to the community and particularly those who need some extra TLC. Thanks also for sharing food for the soul from the words of our loving Creator.” Duane
“Love 96.5 and all the good you do. Its so positive, uplifting and family friendly, which is increasingly rare in this world! Thank you.” Scott & Joy
“Listen to you every day. Many times I have turned on the radio in the car and I have received a word of encouragement through your songs.” Kylie
“Love the positive messages and look forward to being blessed as I drive to and from work and school run which amounts to about 15 hours a week. I laugh, smile, cry and feel enriched each day. I was going through a very tough time a while ago and the ‘LifeWords’ booklet was truly a blessing – as I turned each day to a the next page, I felt each daily message was personally written for me and felt the words leap from the page and minister to me in a very powerful way. In each page I found God ministering His love, healing and mercy. God showed me His wisdom, forgiveness and compassion and felt empowered. Brisbane is truly blessed to have 96.5 on the airwaves.” Denisa
As it stands 96five is 92.7% funded with a shortfall of $53,305. Over the coming weeks our management will be looking at the budget for the new financial year and working out how we can best manage this shortfall. We appreciate your ongoing prayers for the ministry and would love if you could continue to pray for us during these next couple of weeks!
The reality is only 2% of those who listen to 96five will contribute financially. For the just over 2800 people who gave a gift over the past couple of months – thank you so much!
Your gift at work through 96five really can mean the difference between just surviving and really living. And changed lives can mean a changed city!
