Dear Friends of KHCS,
Now that we are in October and Fall is here the 40 Days of Love which we told you about last month started September 20th and runs through October 29th. Just because this evangelistic outreach is for 40 days does not mean the prayer, care and sharing of the Gospel should stop then!
Experts tell us that if we do something over a prolonged period of time it becomes a new habit or lifestyle. During the 40 Days of Love let us allow God to work so deeply in us that a Lifestyle of Radical Prayer, Selfless Love and a Bold Proclamation of Jesus Christ will become our new norm.
Many of the valleys churches and organizations are organizing CARE events to show the love of God to our communities. If you would like to participate, contact Pastor Chris Hushaw by sending him an email and ask how you and your church can get involved. His email is Chris@CornerstoneHome.org.
One of the ministries in the valley is The Narrow Door which is a volunteer-driven, faith based organization that finds the needs of the Coachella Valley and meets them above and beyond. The Narrow Door seeks out local church partners and service organizations to become their volunteer base. They now have over 50 churches and organizations currently involved. Some of the church partners have taken on special roles by adopting communities during this 40 Days of Love. These groups deliver food boxes monthly, start community based Bible studies, provide children’s activities as well as clean-up and fix-it projects
The Coachella Valley Rescue Mission has their 40 Days of Love care events which include many things including a Patriot Ride which is an assistance program which includes preparing 1000 PB&J sandwiches on October 20th. Your church could get involved with them for the Fall Food Event for the homeless. They have many other events planned.
There is also a Patriot Weekend supporting our veterans and first responders sponsored by Southwest Church on October 20th. They are also sponsoring Blood Drive at the Church on October 15th.
Cornerstone Covenant Church is having Cookies for Firefighters. They are asking folks to bring a dozen homemade cookies or a bag of candy to your local firehouse.
These are just a few examples of how the Christian community can reach out and show the love of God to our community and let them know we are praying for them. This can also give us the opportunity to present the Gospel to them that otherwise would not be possible.
This 40 Days of Love is being coordinated here in the Coachella Valley by the LOV Movement (Lighthouses of the Valley). The LOV Movement is made up of churches, pastors and lay-leaders that get together monthly and pray for this Coachella Valley and that people will come to Christ!
This month from September 20th through October 29th, the LOV Movement invites all to be a part of the 40 Days of Love. This is a Global Prayer, Care, Share Evangelism Campaign that has a goal to see tens of thousands of congregations participate from across the United State and around the world.
They have designed a 40 Days of Love “Prayer, Care, Share Guide” that will activate the members of congregations and individuals to proactively love on those that God has placed around them. This initiative has the potential of presenting and spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ and transforming millions of lives.
This is an opportunity for all Christians and the churches they attend here in the Coachella Valley to be a part of an evangelism outreach that can have a tremendous effect for the cause of Christ. Do not let this opportunity pass you by.
KHCS is committed to bring God honoring programming and information to the Coachella Valley so that the Gospel will be clearly proclaimed. This is your station and we would ask, if you are not, to consider becoming a monthly supporter. The month of September was difficult for us financially. We rely only on donations from our listeners to pay our expenses. Your financial support is the only way we keep this station on the air for His glory! Please remember us in your prayers. Thank you!
In His Joy,
