BLUE RIDGE BROADCASTING Christian WMIT (106.9 THE LIGHT)/BLACK MOUNTAIN, NC held an on-air pledge drive on TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 2nd. Listeners pledged $272,250 to support ongoing work by SAMARITAN'S PURSE in HAITI, which will meet the immediate needs of 1,815 HAITIAN families.
“Last TUESDAY’s response from listeners ranks among the biggest outpourings to any mission project 106.9 THE LIGHT has ever presented. And in these times when money is tight, some listeners had to make sacrifices to provide for HAITIAN families. Every bit of the credit belongs to God," said WMIT Executive Director JIM KIRKLAND. “In the days just after the earthquake, we felt God calling us away from the normal game plan to connect listeners to an opportunity that would quickly help HAITIANS. And when one thinks of international relief work done in Christ’s name, SAMARITAN'S PURSE is first-in-mind."
