Requests from chaplains continue to pour in for portable Audio Bibles
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., March 23, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- During their annual Sharathon this month, WCSG partnered with Faith Comes By Hearing (FCBH) to support American troops with God's Word in audio through Military BibleSticks. The small, portable, digital audio players were designed by FCBH in 2008 to meet military specifications for use on deployment.
WCSG, a part of the Cornerstone University Radio group (CURadio), promoted the Military BibleStick on air during their fundraising campaign and also provided information about the project on their website. As a result of the generosity of their listeners, more than 300 BibleSticks will now be available to encourage and spiritually strengthen the brave men and women serving in America's armed forces.
"Partnering with Faith Comes By Hearing by providing Military BibleSticks is a natural extension of WCSG's heart – that is to encourage and engage listeners to a deeper relationship with Christ," states Chris Lemke, Executive Director of CURadio. "What better gift could we give to our military service men and women who serve so sacrificially?"
FCBH continues to look to Christian radio as a partner to inform the public about the overwhelming demand for Military BibleSticks from chaplains and troops. The ministry is currently working to eliminate a backorder of more than 12,000 requests.
"Stations like WCSG, and others across the nation, are truly a blessing to our troops and continue to be faithful to meet our call for their help," says Marine veteran Jon Wilke, spokesman for the Military BibleStick project.
Faith Comes By Hearing initiated their military outreach in 2008 and has provided more than 100,000 BibleSticks to troops through nearly 700 members of the U.S. Armed Forces' chaplaincy corps.
