Footsteps is a new 2-minute feature from Trans World Radio that highlights the stories and strategies of individuals and ministries who are fulfilling the Great Commission.

Beginning Monday, August 11th, Uncommon Moments will replace Rise Above at 1:06 am and 2:07 pm Monday through Friday. Uncommon Moments is a one-minute program hosted by Tony and Lauren Dungy who desire to help listeners strengthen the core of their lives and faith. Topics include living an "uncommon life" of integrity, honoring family, and walking with the Lord. Tune in and hear how you can be uncommon.
Meet Ron Gangwer
Ron joined WIHS in the spring of 2001. He worked the overnight air shifts for ten years before moving to his present mid-days air position in 2011. He also serves as WIHS' Program Manager making sure all the programs and their promos are set for daily airing.
A testimony is defined as evidence testifying to something. I would like to take this opportunity to testify to the Lord's goodness and mercy. Psalm 100:5 states, "For the Lord is good; His mercy endureth to all generations." This verse sums up my life as the Lord has abundantly blessed me in it.
I was raised in a Christian home - the Lord is good. I accepted Christ as my Savior at an early age - the Lord is good. I attended Christian schools for a good portion of my life including Christian college – the Lord is good. I married a Godly woman – the Lord is good. Both of my daughters and all but one immediate family member knows the Lord as their personal Savior – the Lord is good. I have been blessed to work in Christian ministries all my working life – first at a Christian school and now here at WIHS – the Lord is good.
Am I deserving of any of this goodness? Not in the least! I have failed Him many times but His mercy -- defined as compassion or forgiveness shown toward someone whom it is within one's power to punish or harm – endureth to all generations.
My hope and prayer for you is that you too can taste and see that THE LORD IS GOOD (Psalm 34:8) and experience His plenteous MERCY (Psalm 86:5)!
How to S-t-r-e-t-c-h Your Giving to WIHS
MATCHING GIFTS - Did you know that many businesses provide matching gifts to non-profit charities which are supported by their employees? A number of WIHS listeners "stretch their giving" by asking their employers to match their personal gifts to WIHS. Why not ask your employer if they offer this means of "stretching your giving"??
