WPER/Fredericksburg Listener Engagement Director Allison Mayberry checks in with HisAir. She says, “What exciting news!! Your Encouraging WPER completed their fundraiser at 100% impact. It was truly a testimony to be able to minister to the listeners and pray with them, cry with them and celebrate faith stories with them. We heard over and over again how WPER is there for our listeners each and every day. The station is there for births of new babies, marriages, job loss, new employment, marriage counseling, graduation celebrations, loss of a friend or family member, addiction and so much more.” “The staff are humbled by the support and love shown from the community and are looking forward to celebrating 23 years of ministry this summer!”
