The Story Project - Carrie's Husband

By: NNuser

Carrie's husband is an Air Force pilot and he deployed in May 2013. Originally the deployment was supposed to be for seven months but was extended to 10 months (300 days). It's the longest deployment since they've had children. Their children are 9 and 7 years old, and they have really missed their daddy. But her husband has been listening to WGTS 91.9 overseas, and it has helped connect them despite the distance, knowing that he is listening to the same radio station that they are.

The Story Project - Daniel

By: NNuser

Daniel was out of a job, and eventually found one out of state (in Michigan) and had to be there during the week and come back home on weekends to be with his wife. As you can imagine, it was very difficult for them, until he put a prayer request on WGTS 91.9's Prayerworks about finding a job closer to home. Almost immediately, he got responses that people were praying for him. Several days later he got an offer for a job here in DC area and he's so excited.

The Story Project - Jim

By: NNuser

In 1997 Jim was following a path of loyalty to the Lord when his fiancé died in a car accident. He became a very bitter man which led to womanizing, alcohol, drugs, and violence. As a result this lifestyle landed him in jail. However, Jim was invited to a Church in jail where he became a Christian. When he got out, he decided to look for something inspirational and by accident he found WGTS 91.9, which he says uplifts him and helps him stay on God's path.

The Story Project - John

By: NNuser

John's wife of 31 years passed away just a little over a year ago. There's an old radio she got at an auction sitting on the end of their kitchen counter. When she was with him, it played WGTS 91.9 continuously. Until recently, he hasn't had the courage to turn it on. But when he turned it on, instead of the sadness he feared, he felt comfort listening all day as he was preparing the house for Thanksgiving company. He just can't explain how much it seemed to turn his house back into a home.
