An anchor and lifeline in life’s changes

It has not been easy with many people this season, with COVID induced isolations and restrictions. But on top of that first-time Visionathon giver Joan and her husband had to go through some major life changes. Vision has been a lifeline. Joan shares with Robbo, Becci and Phil on Visionathon.

“My husband had to go into a nursing home. We had to sell our farm and I moved into a retirement village. So there’s been a lot of changes and our family. It was a big time of adjustment. So

Vision has been such a blessing, a lifesaver,

really over this time.

For company, because there’s been a lot of isolation as well. We’ll come up out of it, but I just wanted to thank you so much.

Just knowing what it’s like with isolation to have Vision there, that’s why we want to help to get more stations all over Australia.”

Amazing how Joan looked at helping others even in the midst of all that is going on in her life. She is truly freely giving what she freely received. She is also exemplifying what the Bible instructs — to ‘look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.’ Philippians 2:4

As Becci put it,  “you know you could have easily just gone on, ‘oh, I’ve got too much going on with all the different changes,’ but you stepped out and we really appreciate that. And first-time givers and I’m giving you the biggest ever radio cuddle and if I saw you in person, I’d give you an even bigger one.”

We would want to give you a cuddle too, Joan. And pray for God to guide and comfort you in your transitional time.

More Stories from Visionathon

Transformed in Prison through Vision

One devotional, and Vision Christian Radio. In the hands of someone held captive in prison. That’s how God met Mel from Casino, and now many others through Mel. But that’s the power of God’s Word, and He CAN do immeasurably more than what we ask or imagine!

Vision180 — Great Influence on Youth

36 out of top 40 songs have sexually explicit lyrics or swear words in them. How do we keep our younger generation off that?

A Childs Generosity

We’ve had many stories over the years of Vision where children have felt led to give their hard saved pocket money to the work of God through Vision. Today we heard from two in very close succession!

Impossible Provisions? Not with the God of the Impossible!

Crossing four state borders during lockdown. A house to stay in when there’s none available to rent. How are these even possible? But Ian found that God was truly the God of the impossible as he experiences miracle after miracle.

 

 

The Word for Today

 

The ‘More’ Pandemic

Our society has bred consumers and addicts. We want more. More materialism, more money, more status, more likes and followers on social media, more knowledge. We also fill up our schedules. We are on a fruitless mission to fill the gaping hole in the heart. This ‘more’ pandemic has been plaguing us for a while.

The Real Purpose of Thanksgiving

Did you know? The first American president set up Thanksgiving in America for giving thanks to God? But why should we give thanks to God?
