Wondering how you can help from so far away? Here are some great options to offer aid through reputable organizations:
Samaritan’s Purse is sending disaster relief units to Texas.
The Salvation Army Greater Houston Command Center.
Star of Hope – homeless shelter in Houston – go to sohmission.org and click on donation page or text URHOPE to 41444
Samaritan’s Feet is sending a shipment of their World Shoe, which protects feet from injury, infections, diseases and, because of an active anti-microbial agent, can actually treat infections as the shoe is worn.
You can also donate to help in the effort to rescue animals who were separated from their families or stray. Austin Pets Alive and Houston Pets Alive are shelters that are currently taking in and taking care of hundreds of animals affected by the hurricane.
Have you ever noticed God prodding you a bit? Causing you to notice the same thing everywhere you turn, to the point where you think “okay, you’re trying to tell me something, aren’t you?!”
What I’m noticing lately, through my time spent reading my Bible, listening to Pulse music, talking with good friends and in a couple of great books on prayer and giving, is that I’ve gotten used to things being just the way they are. But I think God has something bigger planned.
Here’s something that’s been on my mind as a result of this prodding:
“Nothing honors God more than a big dream that is way beyond our ability to accomplish. Why? Because there is no way we can take credit for it. And nothing is better for our spiritual development than a big dream because it keeps us on our knees in raw dependence on God.”
-Mark Batterson/The Circle Maker
We’ve been asking listeners for about a year now to help us in sponsoring 1000 monthly memberships through Club TEN17 (or 1000 gifts of $10.17 per month). We can each take one, take five, take ten. Right now we’re at 895 – it’s been an uphill climb, but we’re making progress!
Here’s my dream: to see Pulse 101.7FM fully funded. To work to reach out to our community with the resources we have and share TRUTH to as many listeners as we can. To continue to investigate opportunities for growth. To see God change lives and use our humble little station in the process.
Will you join me? Please pray with me right now that God will move in hearts to give and help us reach this need for 1000 memberships sponsored. That would be huge. Please also ask God to continue to use the staff and the music of Pulse 101.7 in ways both seen and unseen in our central Iowa community.
Yes, God is at work, and He continues to use Pulse 101.7FM for His purposes. I also believe deep in my heart that there’s potential for so much more. Thank you for praying, and for giving. We can’t do it without you!
