“There’s Nothing That Our God Can’t Do!”

Family Life’s Fall Sharathon

October 14-17, 2020


The history of Family Life is the story of the Lord performing one miracle after another!  When the flagship station was applied for in 1978, local opposition from another radio station created uncertainty of the application’s approval.  But God saw it through! 

When three more applications were filed in the mid-1980s, significant resistance from a secular radio group almost derailed the dream of a network.  Years of legal wrangling left the ministry hanging in the balance.  But God gave Family Life the victory! 

When a construction permit for a station in Galeton, Pennsylvania was offered to the ministry, it came with the nearly impossible task of having to build this station from scratch in 30 days.  But God performed a miracle and it went on the air 19 days later! 

These are just a few of the many instances where Family Life has seen the Lord do what only He could do.  He moves mountains, He parts the seas, and He makes a way when many times there seems to be no way. 

Recently, I read once again about the miracle of the Lord parting the Jordan River to allow His children to enter the land He had promised them.  The Jordan was at flood stage, and God tested their faith by telling those carrying the Ark of the Lord to step in first and they would then be able to cross on dry land.  They trusted God, took the step, and He parted the waters. 

Toward the end of the fourth chapter of Joshua, the Lord said “He did this so that all the peoples of the earth might know that the hand of the Lord is powerful and so that you might always fear the Lord your God”. 

Family Life has chosen a theme for the Fall Sharathon that speaks to the powerful hand of the Lord.  When we look back over the six-plus decades of His blessing and favor, we say with all confidence that “There’s Nothing That Our God Can’t do!”  I love the lyrics of the chorus of our theme song by Passion. 

There's nothing that our God can't do
There's not a mountain that He can't move
Oh, praise the name that makes a way
There's nothing that our God can't do

God has raised up a radio network that encourages hundreds of thousands of listeners every week with the truth of Scripture.  He has brought together an incredibly talented group of people in the Performing Arts Department who train young people and who share the gospel with their skills on stage. 

He has allowed the ministry to help those who are hurting and struggling with serious life issues through the Biblical Counseling Department.  And He has provided opportunities for the Christian community and the general public to experience the message of hope found in Jesus Christ through a variety of outreaches organized by Family Life’s Events Department. 

You can be a part of God’s miracle work at Family Life as a Faith Partner.  What exactly is a Faith Partner?  It is one who has felt the leading of the Lord to financially invest in this organization.  Because of those investments, Family Life is able to provide all the varied ministries with which the Lord has blessed it. 

Family Life’s passion is to use every tool that it has been given to reach families, parents, young people, husbands and wives, and singles with Biblical truth that changes lives. The Lord has truly blessed this ministry by giving it a sphere of influence in your region.  It is our prayer that through God’s work at Family Life, He will shine His light ever more brightly to those who seek after Him and also to those still lost in darkness. 

I invite you to become a Faith Partner during the Fall Sharathon which will be held October 14-17.  In so doing, you will be investing in the spiritual well-being of your community by helping Family Life fulfill its mission to impact lives with the message of hope found in Jesus Christ. 

Become a Faith Partner by today. Your financial involvement will add another chapter to the ongoing Family Life story that “There’s Nothing That Our God Can’t Do!” 

Yours in Christ,
