I recently returned from a week of vacation, as my wife and I traveled to visit one of our daughters and her family. In that one week, I was privileged to help baptize my 14-year-old granddaughter, celebrate my 16-year-old grandson’s birthday, and watch his older brother graduate from high school! I could not help but be a bit proud of their accomplishments and the Christ-honoring legacy they represent.
Legacy can mean a gift willed to someone, such as money or personal property. But it can also mean something passed on to someone for future use and blessing. It served its purpose or owner in the past and now is extended to serve a new owner or beneficiary, in the future. That is what I choose to think of our radio ministry. For the past 18 years, KTLW’s music and ministries have served thousands, but now our legacy can serve a new owner to expand its use and blessing to new thousands—and even more.
As I said in a recent letter to our faithful donors, we are planning a very special final program to air at 6 p.m. on Friday, July 3rd, prior to our final sign off at 7 p.m.—18 years to the day since we started! We invite you to listen! After that, you can enjoy the Air1 format from the Educational Media Foundation, perhaps the premiere contemporary Christian music source in America!
