They say it’s the calm after the storm, but for many of our family and friends, it may not be so. WGTS 91.9 would like to hear about your experience throughout the hurricane weekend. Feel free to share your story or any prayer requests you may have here.

 

Peace be Still!

Peace be Still!

Were you shaken during the earthquake on Tuesday? Listeners to WGTS 91.9FM called and it was as serious as a terrorist attack, while others thought it was as simple as construction outside. During the earthquake and even hours afterward the overall feeling for many was one of fear. The disciples went through a similar situation when they were on the boat with Jesus. As the wind and rain came their boat rocked back and forth much like our earthquake. We need to understand that we serve a God who is in control and that even the winds and rains obey him. Whether it is the fear of the impending hurricane this weekend or an impending hurricane in your life, Jesus says, “Peace be still!” Know that the heavenly father is in control, always, no matter how chaotic things get.

Breakaway: Forks Over Knives

Thinking about changing up your diet?

I’ve thought about it several times myself.

I know I need to lose weight, but I have serious hangups about letting go of pizza night (or nights). Frankly I also like pizza mornings.

That’s why it was reassuring to hear that there are some options to satisfy those cravings if I change my diet.

In fact, we had Jan from the Potomac Adventist Book and Health Food Store talk to Chaplain Terry Johnsson on Breakaway about a brand new DVD and book called Forks Over Knives. We even got a chance to do our best Rachel Ray impression at the WGTS studios/kitchen/office/lobby. You can see it below! We even have a recipe to share!

What Now?

What Now?

I’m home from the mission trip and I am a changed person.  That doesn’t mean that I’m ready to sell my house and only eat two meals a day or dress in rags… I’m talking about an interior change.

I’ve realized I don’t have to be the mom that buys her kids all the latest games and toys to make her kids feel loved.  I don’t have to kill myself working extra hours to get the house with a bigger living room, if the one we have is perfectly fine.  And I can’t try to impress God or other people by just going to church or giving to the poor.

My lifestyle has to reflect my faith and my gratitude.  I have to show love and live in love with the people around me -if that makes sense to you.  I have to do more than just listen to a sermon, I have to share what God has done in my life to really be a follower of Christ.   And I sort of knew all that before, but sometimes it takes walking in someone else shoes for a little while to realize how much you can be better and do better.

So, “what now?”  If you’ve ever asked yourself, “what is the purpose of Blanca going on this mission trip?” Here is my answer:  It is to prepare your heart to sponsor a child when WGTS 91.9 does their sponsorship drive on August 31 and September 1 this year.  And before you say… “uh, oh… I know where this is going and I don’t want to keep reading this…”  I want you to simply pray about it… but really do it.  And just ask God, “Lord, how can I make a difference in someone’s life?”  And if you feel that sponsoring a child though Compassion is the answer, then listen on those dates and call us.  We will help you select a child and even give you some suggestions of the greatest needs.

This is my last blog on the trip and I just want to say thank you for following me on this journey.  It was a dream come true for me and an experience I only hope makes a difference in your life too.  I asked many children, “if you could say something to your sponsor what would it be?”  Without hesitation and with a huge grin, they all gave me the same answer, “I would tell them ‘thank you!’”

Where I Found Hope

Where I Found Hope

Saturday night, the Sheraton Premiere  not only provided an escape from the unbearable heat from the week, it was not only a shelter from the rain that fell all day, but it was a refuge from an economy crumbled around me.

It was a sanctuary where I could forget for a moment that my boss wants to fire me and the mole on my chest looked worse this morning.

Saturday night, the Night of Hope at the Sheraton Premiere was a shield protecting me from the fear that I’ve already suffered from.

It was a retreat where I found God again.

It  was a retreat where I found myself again.

Where I found hope again.

I think we can connect with God through music. I saw that happen right in front of me when Heather Williams and the WGTS Gateway Praise Band shared moments of worship on stage. And in those moments everyone in the room came together in way I’ve never seen before.

I saw the same thing happen at the prayer stations, while Chaplain Terry Johnsson shared a few thoughts and even when people dropped of school supplies for Backpacks of Hope.

I hope you can share in those moments too through the videos below and the pictures here.
