I have been listening to your fundraiser for Compassion and just wanted to share with you my trip to El Salvador with Compassion.
It was a group tour with about 25 sponsors and we saw how this ministry works inside out.The sponsorship program,child survival program and income generation all were so well organized.
I hope you share with everyone all the programs they do.
I've been on mission trips but this one changed me in ways I can't explain.We all spent a day with our sponsor kids playing games and talking.Bonds were made that can't be broken.

Hey, I just thought I would share my life changing story with you since your station is the little push that made me share this with my school.
So, when I was in the seventh grade (I'm in ninth now), I was going through a tough time. You know that's the age that all the hormones start kicking in. So everything was getting me so mad; my parents, my friends, EVERYTHING. My parents were also were putting a lot on me, since I was in middle school. School and homework were just 2 other things to add to the pile. So all that and much ore eventually led me to a point where I was just so upset that I didn't care about anything anymore. I gave up. I didn't do my homework, nothing. I did what made me happy, but I never was happy. My parents were yelling at since I wasn't doing what they told me to and they yelled at me for my grades since they were dropping.
Then, Satan decided to make my life worse. I got depressed. Satan was telling me that God wasn't there; that He didn't exist. I knew it was him, but I was struggling so hard to get out of it. I eventually got to a point where he stopped, but not for long.
I thought that it was all over. I was so happy! I knew God was there for me and I went back to a normal life. I shared my story with my school at chapel time, I got lots of hugs and it was so emotional.
But then, in November of eighth grade, I started to realize my best friend was leading me down the wrong path. She was putting me down, talking pervertedly, and just not being the right friend. So, in March, I ditched her. I found two new friends whom I love soooooooooooo much!
But, the friend I ditched begged me to give her another chance, so I did. But, she blew it again. Several times after that. I'm not going to say everything that she did, but she did read my prayer journal and showed it to her friends. I had written I few things in there about her, so she got mad. I got mad that she read my diary. So, I ditched her over summer break, again. That was the final straw.
So, in all of the mess, I gained several good things. I started listening to WAY-FM more. I gained two new best friends who are the best people I know. And probably the best thing out of all of this is that I made a website for people who have had hard times in their lives and want to share it with other people. www.christianstorieschangealife.yolasite.com . Thank you for listening.
(P.S.- I do give you permission to share this on the air. I would like it if you did. I want my website to touch more people's lives. Well, i guess it's God's really. :D)

Hello, my name is Cierra. I am 17 years old. I started listening to the station when two years ago and i have progressed daily with god. My story is that when i was 6 i was taken away from my father by my biological mother. I was abused and taken for granted by her. She used me as a way for drugs and alcohol. A year later I was once again with my Dad. I don't see my biological mother after that. I didnt understand what God did for me then, but when i turned 15 I found out that my grandfather had stage 4 lung cancer. For awhile I was angry with God. I asked him continuosly "why?". As time passed for two years I became closer to the one that helped to find me and get me away from my biological mother. Each day that I spent with him we talked about God and his plan. He told me that this was his plan for him and that I shouldn't be sad, but to be happy for him. I simply didnt understand... He passed away on July 28th, 2012. The day he died I remember our talks about God. So, I looked up at the sky and smiled and said, "I'll miss you, but one day we will be side by side again." That was the day that I truely found God. From that day on, I put everything to God. I am getting babtised soon and I am so thankful he helped me when I went through the tough things in life. I love this radio station and so did my grandfather. Everytime I listen to this station I remember him. Thank you for all your doing to help the ones like me. I love to listen about God and even praise him in the car. Thank you for letting me put my story on here and now i can get the chance to change someones life that is like me. I am in FCA at my school and proud to go daily to help change lives and to make a difference.
Thanks for reading!

When i was 8 years old my dad past away. I felt like i was broken like i couldnt go on. He was my best friend and hero. I was the biggest daddies girl He would always eat lunch with me at school. I wanted to end my life right then and there when i found out he had passed away. He use to play his guitar and i would sing and he was going to teach me how to play guitar when i got older. After he passed i couldnt even touch a guitar. I cried everyday. I had to go to school that month later. I had no friends and i didnt talk to anyone. I got made fun of and kids asked me where my dad was (because he always ate with me at lunch). as years went on i didnt really tell people and i could never really talk about it. Fathers day was the worst. Music saved me. I would turn on 88.1 and sing along. i got my first guitar at age 10 and taught myself. When i would play guitar it was like my dad was with me and i could feel his presents. soon after i taught myself to sing and play at the same time. i knew then that, that was how i could always have my dad with me. Whenever i was sad or mad or just needed to get away thats what i did i grabbed my guitar and went away and played and sung. i never really sung or played infront of people till i was 14. I sung at my church infront of people and it was the best feeling. Thats when i knew god had big plans for me. i entered my first talent show in the 9th grade and sung Pray by justin bieber, during the time was when the tornadoes hit and destroyed lots of things and i thought the song fit the situation. Since then my life has changed so much. I was the only sophomore to be in a coffee and cake production that my choir has that mostly juniors and seniors get into to preform on stage. I sung beautiful ending by barlow girl. Now im a upcoming junior and this summer a producer wants to record me and make me a CD and meet his daughter which is a famous christian singer and she wants to be my mentor. im so blessed that this is all happening. i hope to share my story to the world one day. Im only 16 and cant believe i have faced so much. My mom had blood clots a couple years ago and almost died and then had 4 tumors this past year. im so thankful for my friends and family and music for always being there for me. The song that really means alot to me right now is "All this time" by Britt nicole. i hope one day i could meet her and may be sing with her. Shes my idol. I hope who ever is reading this could some how relate to anything. My favorite verse at the moment is Philippians 4:13 "i can do ALL things through Christ that strengthens me" i hope you have a blessed day.
