Each year WSAE/Spring Arbor/Jackson, MI (106.9 HOME.FM) partners with ‘Aspen Heating & Cooling’ for HEAT FOR THE HOLIDAYS!  106.9 HOME.fm asks listeners to nominate families that are in need of a new furnace, that might not have the resources to replace a worn out furnace, or are having a hard time keeping their family safe and warm throughout the winter months.  After nominations take place, Aspen Heating & Cooling representatives visit the nominees and determine where the need is most.

This year, with support of their local ‘Aspen Heating & Cooling’ store; they were able to give away 3 Furnaces to local Families in Need with the HEAT FOR THE HOLIDAYS partnership!

Each of the 3 winners that were chosen were very much in need of a new furnace, and one of the families were heating their home with space heaters, while having a newborn infant in the home.

PD Glenn Goodwin said that it is a such a privilege to be able to partner with such amazing organizations and businesses in the community like ‘Aspen Heating & Cooling’, to bring comfort, joy and safe warm homes to the area during this time of the year.

Twelve countries are considered priorities this Christmas for broadcasts of The Story of Jesus, the made-for-radio version of the JESUS film.

Since 1997, TWR – also known as Trans World Radio – has collaborated with Cru in presenting an audio version of Cru’s beloved movie that’s drawn from the Gospel of Luke. The radio version is mostly aired during the Christmas and Easter seasons, said Tom Terry, the head of Global Broadcast Strategy for Jesus Film Project.

The 90-minute audio is being broadcast in a wide variety of places and languages, said Brandon Neal, deputy to the director of Global Media Services of TWR, including most of Africa, every Latin American nation and every Caribbean island. But there’s a particular emphasis on languages of a dozen nations, so sensitive in ministry terms that we are not naming them here. But they have something in common:

“Among those countries, it’s almost impossible to get in,” Terry said. “The only way you’re going to get in is to broadcast from the outside, which of course is what TWR does.”

That’s because it has powerful regional transmitters that can reach countries that otherwise are closed to the gospel.

The audio can be broadcast in its entirety, in two parts or in 30- or 15-minute segments, depending on the radio station, Neal said. In many places, it will be broadcast on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. In some outlets, it will be timed with Orthodox Christmas, which is Jan. 7.
