You’ve GOT to read this incredible letter!

Kaci, a WAY-FM listener, called in recently to talk with Carlos & Joy about the struggle of finding hope. Another listener, Rae, overheard Kaci’s call-in on the subject, found the closest coffee shop, prayed, and reached out to us with encouragement to pass on to Kaci. Turns out she encouraged the team here too. Instead of keeping Rae’s encouragement to ourselves, we thought (with her permission) we’d share it with you too…   “Dear Kacie,… … Continue reading

When Poverty Doesn’t Make You Cry

So, this is what poverty really looks like. “Leave any valuables on the bus. This is a dangerous part of town.” We exited single file and walked through muddy streets, glancing at mangy dogs and piles of trash. I couldn’t tell where one home stopped and another began.

I’ve asked myself that question ever since I watched a documentary on the Discovery Channel about the gold rush of 1949. Odd inspiration…but it happened. Two men, Oliver Martin and John Fowler were miners hoping to strike it rich during the gold rush. They happened to hear a rumor about a lake so full of gold… … Continue reading
