Where We Are Now

After finding and remediating mold twice in our Colorado home, we abandoned ship in October 2008. Because of the high levels of exposure, our entire family was affected. After months of seeing different specialists for all of the problems, we came to Arizona to begin comprehensive treatment to rid our bodies of the toxic buildup. In August 2009 we moved into a larger home, four bedrooms, south of Tucson, north of Mexico. I am doing my daily radio program/ writing from that location. Thanks for praying for us. We really feel it.

26 years ago, a satellite fed call-in talk show premiered on the Moody Radio. Wednesday night that program ended. I was privileged to work on Open Line for 12 years, from 1985 – 1997, and then the past year or so. Wednesday we talked with Radio Pastor Donald Cole and the other “first host,” Stan Ferris. You won’t believe his profession now, though if you knew Stan, it wouldn’t surprise you.

What a treat to talk with Tedd Seelye, one of the voices of Christian Radio. We were also joined by Wayne Shepherd, who hosted the program from 1997 until 2007.

It was a bittersweet end to a program that has touched many lives. Nancy Alton Hoy, who was an administrative assistant to Wayne, Jim Warren, and any one who needed any work done, called, as well as the first producer of Open Line, Jeff Jacobsen. He was our final caller.

Perhaps the most surprising call was from a woman who had asked Pastor Cole a question more than a decade ago. If you’re a long-time listener you’ll remember the spot announcement that came from that call. Her problem was that she was having physical trouble and the people in her church said if she had more faith she would be able to walk. Pastor Cole asked if she used a cane.

“Yes.”

“Next time they say that, hit them with the cane and when they say it hurts, tell them if they had enough faith it wouldn’t.”

That’s not an exact transcript, but it’s the gist of what he said. What a treasure we’ve had in Pastor Cole. And great guests throughout the years have helped many. It’s truly the end of an era, and we thank God for his use of very fallible people to reach out to listeners over the years. To Him be glory for any good that was achieved.
