1WAY FM has been broadcasting to the Canberra region and surrounds for almost 30 years and year after year we have seen God’s faithful provision and providence. The 2021 June Appeal was no different. God came through and once again amazed us as He has always done.
Our June Appeal was scheduled to run the whole week but by Day 4 we had still only raised just over 20% of our target. However, over the weekend we started to gain some momentum. There was an influx of wonderful volunteers and visitors to the station over the course of the day which added to the excitement as we saw the tally steadily start to rise.
We closed the Appeal week off on Sunday night with just over 47% of our target funded. Over the next few days, donations continued to come in and by the time we started our last end of year financial push we had reached over 60%.
On the last 2 days of the financial year, we saw the generosity of Canberrans and those in surrounding regions as they reached out to support us financially and in prayer. We also heard story after story of how 1WAY FM was helping to share the message of faith and hope to those in our community.
As we closed off the last hour of our Appeal on Wednesday 30th June, during a live broadcast, we were amazed to not only reach our target but completely smash it. We raised over 131% of the target we had set through the remarkable generosity of over 370 individuals and businesses.
We are extremely thankful, exceedingly grateful and most certainly blessed. Despite the uncertainty and challenges that the last year has presented, we have seen God’s faithfulness to do exceedingly, abundantly above all that we could ever ask or think, according to the power that works in us. (Ephesians 3:20). Praise the Lord!
