Exciting Radio News! Spanish Spots Now Airing in Atlanta Alaska & Alabama Christian Radio Stations Running Radio Spots For Free!

We’ve shared with you how God has opened doors for us to have our radio spots translated into Spanish and how excited we’ve been to air those spots in South Texas and Northern Mexico for the past few months.

Now, there’s even more exciting news! In July, we began airing our Spanish spots right here in Atlanta on 105.3 FM (WBZY El Patron). Atlanta’s Spanish-speaking population is increasing, and we are compelled to share the Good News of Jesus Christ in the language of their culture. Please pray with us that the hearts of those listening will be open and ready to receive Jesus!

Besides Spanish radio, our devotions are available in Spanish on the web at desdealcorazon.org. Traffic on this site is approaching 500 visits/month!

Alaska & Alabama Christian Radio Stations Running Radio Spots For Free!

We were recently contacted by two Christian radio stations that were in need of quality inspirational radio spots to fill their air- ways. While our main focus for our 60-second spots has always been secular radio, we certainly are thrilled to provide these spots to Christian stations when they ask for them! So, Bryant’s short, quick-hitting radio spots will soon be heard on KNOM 780 AM and 96.1 FM, a Christian station that covers Northern Alaska, reach- ing over into Russia, and WELJ 90.9 FM, a 100K watt station that covers South Central Alabama and portions of NW Florida. Praise God for answering prayers we didn’t even know to pray!

Current English Radio Schedules

We also continue to run our 60-second radio spots on the following English-speaking stations:

WSB-AM 750
Atlanta metro, the #1 News/Talk station in the nation

GA News Network
110+ affiliate stations reaching all 159 counties in Georgia

FL News Network
56+ affiliate stations reaching all 67 counties in Florida

You can listen to our radio spots online at rightfromtheheart.org/radio

Upcoming Series On the Prophecy of Jesus’ Second Coming

Beginning, Sunday, August 30, Bryant Wright began preaching an 11-week series entitled "Knowing the Future to Understand Today." This series focuses on prophecy--what the Bible has to say about the end times and what the future holds for God’s people and the world. If you miss a sermon, you can view and/or listen at rightfromtheheart.org/series. Sermons are normally available Monday afternoon following the Sunday message.

Also, you can purchase the entire series from our web site after the last message is preached. However you choose to get the message, you don’t want to miss this series!



What is Social Networking & Why Are We Involved?

What is Social Networking & Why Are We Involved?

You may be aware of the proliferation of web sites that help people keep up with their "friends," share pictures, chat, and update one another on what’s going on in their lives. Two of the most popular social networking sites are Facebook and Twitter. Did you know that Facebook has over 250 MILLION participants worldwide? What a tremendous opportunity for us to share our faith! Our daily devotions on Facebook and short messages on Twitter offer words of encouragement and tell others about Christ.

Our prayer site, rightfromtheknees.org, encourages the Body of Christ to lean on, pray for, and support each other while looking to the Lord as the Supplier of all our needs.

We’ve also developed a "Google-Gadget" that will put the RFTH Daily Devotion on your iGoogle home page!

If you haven’t perused our web sites lately, please take a few minutes to see the wealth of resources available there. While there, comment on the latest devotion, request prayer or pray for someone, and if you’re using Twitter or Facebook, “friend/follow” us!

In His Service!

Jim Murphy
Executive Director

Andy has done a wonderful job for nearly three years, upgrading our online tools for spreading the Gospel.

The good news is that Andy will continue to live in North Georgia and work with us on a contract basis, helping the ministry to continue growing our web presence with the same level of excellence we endeavor to achieve in all our publications. We wish Andy the best as he continues his career in the ministry.


Your Kindness Refreshes the Hearts of God’s People

Your Kindness Refreshes the Hearts of God’s People

From Paul while in a Roman Prison

 I always thank my God when I pray for you because I keep hearing about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for his people. I am praying that you will put into action the generosity that comes from your faith as you understand and experience all the good things we have in Christ. Your love has given me much joy and comfort, my brother, for your kindness has often refreshed the hearts of God’s people. - Philemon 1:4-7 (NLT)

The kindness and generosity of you, our faithful friends, is an encouragement to the RFTH team. Your support allows us to refresh the hearts of God’s people and share the Gospel of Christ. During these difficult times, we’ve been forced to drastically reduce our radio and TV broadcasts. We are committed to our mission to share Christ but cannot do it without you!

May you "put into action the generosity that comes from your faith." My heart is always refreshed by your kindness and generosity! I hope to hear from you soon! And remember, you can always donate online at rightfromtheheart.org/donate.

To Further Our Reach,

Barry Wheeler,
Director of Donor Development
