LIVE Appeal Blog: Be the Spark

By Andrew MorrisTuesday 24 Jun 2014

Welcome to the LIVE blog for June Appeal 2014. This year’s theme is Be the Spark.

Andrew MorrisIt’s amazing what a spark can do. It only takes a spark to start something new and powerful. For many of us, the moment of our salvation happened when a tiny spark in our hearts prompted us to call out to God.

Hope 103.2 began as a spark of vision in Reverend Vernon Turner’s heart, and it’s still igniting sparks of hope across Sydney 35 years later!

Join us LIVE each day as we bring you all the colour and news from the June Appeal Tally room on the way to the $790,000 target and beyond.

Monday 30 June

6:00pm – THANK YOU AGAIN. The Live tally room closed at 6pm tonight after you funded not only the June Appeal target but a special HEAR HOPE outdoor marketing project of $120,000. This special project will ensure the message of Hope that’s impacted so many Hope listeners will potentially reach the many Sydneysiders who have never heard of Hope 103.2.

Hope 103.2 CEO Phillip Randall and Chairman Stephen O’Doherty thanked Hope’s generous listeners for their continued faithfulness in ensuring the message of Christ continues to transform lives through Christian community radio in Sydney and around the world. They also expressed great thanks to the many volunteers who gave of their time to ensure June Appeal went smoothly. And finally to the staff of Hope 103.2 who also work with passion and commitment to each day transform life, faith and culture with the gospel message of love.
