A word from Tim to you

Dear Friend,

It was one year ago—just before Easter—when Trudy and I traveled to Israel for the first time. We went to so many places—Nazareth, Capernaum, the Sea of Galilee, the Dead Sea, and Jerusalem.

A highlight for me was visiting Caesarea, where I got to stand in the same place Paul stood before King Agrippa. That spot is especially meaningful to me because 43 years ago, a pastor in Royersford, PA shared that Bible story with me and I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior.

Although I loved Israel and especially seeing Jerusalem for the first time, one realization during the trip touched me the most: It was all ordinary. Even though I stood where we know Jesus actually stood, the place still felt ordinary. During my trip, I wasn’t walking on clouds, there weren’t angels singing loudly over my head and our tour bus didn’t follow fire by night. The trip was ordinary. But when you take that ordinary place and then God shows up, suddenly you have extraordinary.

What makes this thought really come alive during this Easter season is that the same extraordinary power that raised Jesus Christ from the dead lives in you and me! That means wherever we go, God shows up through us. The ordinary becomes extraordinary because of the power of the Holy Spirit inside of us.

Impossible situations become possible. Broken marriages and relationships are restored. Financial needs are met. Doctor’s reports that were discouraging become “the doctors were amazed.” All because God’s extraordinary power lives in us.

For over 30 years we have seen God do the extraordinary through KSBJ. A song is played just at the right time to encourage someone. A spoken word shared because it is just what someone needed to hear. A community outreach project touches someone’s life that needed to know His love. This is extraordinary touching ordinary—working through you and me.

Thank you for making an extraordinary impact through your gifts, prayers, encouragement, and time. People all across the Gulf Coast are hearing a voice of hope and being touched and changed by God because of friends like you (Romans 10:14). And we’re so grateful for you!
