Reading Time: 1 minute


Day three of our “Greater Hope” June Appeal started off with some really encouraging stories from our listeners and supporters. One of my favourite things about this time of year is getting to hear from the 98five family just how important we are in their everyday lives. I never tire of hearing these stories.

But I also want to share a story we couldn’t put to air. We received a heart-wrenching call this morning from a young mum who had tragically lost her child.


The grief in her voice and hearing what she and her husband went through was too emotional and raw to share on air, but I wanted to share it with you so that you know what your support does.

For this young mum, listening to 98five determined whether or not she could get out of bed in the morning.

For a lot of listeners, 98five is a great source of music and friendship, but for some, it’s life and death.

God speaks through 98five. He reminds us when we need to hear it that there is a tomorrow, another day, something to live for.

So, when you support 98five’s June Appeal you ensure that we can continue to be a lifeline to people like her 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
