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 - 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.
