1079 Life is Adelaide’s Good Taste Radio

We accept donations all year and twice a year we hold special appeals to raise a set amount to cover our significant operating expenses

The 1079 Life Hope for the Future appeal held in the last week of November 2018 was exceptional
With a goal of raising $107,900 God brought forward $160,000. Just as importantly, we heard the stories from listeners. Stories of joy, stories of hope through painful journeys.

We are in the final moments of the Hope for the Future appeal and something is stirring

This afternoon at 12:20pm Luke and Susie were sitting in the studio having a conversation about how it feels like the final afternoon of the appeal has gone a little flat. Hah! Just remember the number 127

Here is the series of events that triggered within a minute of that statement:

  • A challenge was launched from Life listener Lee, with a seemingly random matching challenge of $127 gifts
  • Luke was public with his lack of understanding of why to offer a $127 challenge on air!
  • Life listener Sharni had been talking to God about how much to give. She felt she should give a part of her carers pension that was… $127
  • This happened before the challenge launched. Sharni then turned onto the radio to hear the launch of the $127 challenge

I started to discuss with our team about my feeling that God was talking to us about Psalm 127

Unless the LORD builds the house,
the builders labor in vain.
Unless the LORD watches over the city,
the guards stand watch in vain.
2 In vain you rise early
and stay up late,
toiling for food to eat—
for he grants sleep to[a] those he loves

At that moment the tally clicked onto $127, 777.

  • Moments later Barbara called through and said that God had spoken to her to give $10,000 but she couldn’t do that
  • Instead God challenged her that she was to give $5000 and have it matched by listeners to be $10,000
  • 1079 Life listeners matched her, and then a single person also matched her to mean her gift inspired an extra $10,000

God has been doing something we have never seen before so all we are asking of you is to ask God what he will have you do in the final moments of this appeal today, then respond as you are led.

Bless you for your continued support.
