The Impact You Have with 1079 Life: Dr John.
Written by Kit Densley on September 10, 2020
1079 Life are inviting you to partner with the station to make a big impact.
Coming up this Thursday 17th is your chance to be a regular part of the 1079 Life family by pledging to be a “Life Partner”. Life Partners are people who decide up-front on an annual amount they wish to donate to 1079 Life, and then spread out their gift, usually over monthly instalments. Their donation is made via a nominated credit card or by direct credit.
It’s through people like you, partnering with 1079 Life, that the station is able to impact Adelaide in a way that tangibly changes lives. Over the next week we will share some of the stories that have impacted us.
Dr John and his family were freshly arrived in Australia when they heard 1079 Life on the radio. It was an instant connection and helped them to feel that they weren’t alone, that they did have family here with them.
Working in a stressful environment is never easy. Dr John struggled to not bring those stresses back to his family after work, wanting to be the best dad he could. “ Sometimes you finish work, there’s a lot of stress, lot of problems” he says, “this is a nice way of actually unwinding and getting off so that …you can just jump into whatever family has to offer you.”
He also found that songs would “speak to me at that particular time” and would help build his faith. He recalls on the trip in to speak with us a song came on that meant “I felt the presence of God with me while I was driving”.
Dr John has been a long term partner with 1079 Life because he values the community impact the station has and urges others to partner as well.
You can partner with 1079 Life and help make a tangible difference in someone else’s life. Find out more about what a Life Partner is here.
