As they closed their Appeal week with just over 47% of their target funded, the team at 1WAYFM had no idea this would happen...
1WAY FM has been broadcasting to the Canberra region and surrounds for almost 30 years, and year after year they have seen God’s faithful provision and providence. The 2021 June Appeal was no different. God came through and once again amazed the team with His provision.
The 1WWAY FM June Appeal was scheduled to run for a whole week but by Day 4 they had raised just over 20% of their target. However, the following weekend they began to gain some momentum. There was an influx of wonderful volunteers and visitors to the station, which added to the excitement, as tally steadily began to rise.
They closed the Appeal week off on the Sunday night with just over 47% of their target funded. Over the next few days donations continued to come in and by the time they were close to the end of financial year, had reached over 60%.
On the last 2 days of the financial year, they saw the generosity of Canberrans and those in surrounding regions as locals reached out to support the station financially, and in prayer. Story after story began to come through, of how 1WAY FM was helping to share the message of faith and hope to those in their community.
During the last hour of their Appeal on the 30th June during a live broadcast, they were amazed to not only reach their target... but completely smash it! Raising over 131% of the set target, donations had been given by over 370 individuals and businesses.
The Team at 1WAY FM say they are, "extremely thankful, exceedingly grateful and most certainly blessed. Despite the uncertainty and challenges that the last year has presented, we have seen God’s faithfulness to do exceedingly, abundantly above all that we could ever ask or think, according to the power that works in us. (Ephesians 3:20).
