Dear Friends of KCRN,
October 3rd, during the last hour of Share 2003 we introduced a special urgent project for KCRN we chose to call the Bricks & Sticks Project: the emergency repair of our FM antenna and expanding our studio space.
As I’m writing this note to you, we have now heard from 105 faith partners allowing us to meet our $30,000 need for the Bricks & Sticks Project. To God be the glory! Thank you for doing your part!
Pray for us as we work over the next several weeks to undertake this critical repair and rebuild of our FM antenna. The space expansion will also begin soon. God bless you!
Warmly in Christ,
Mark A. Mohr
Thank You!!! We are fully funded.
The work is currently being schedueled
