Pope Saint John Paul ll
believed strongly in evangelization by the lay people and also strongly believed in the use of television and radio in this evangelization work.

As the New Year begins, Defenders of the Faith has a lot to be thankful for over the last year because of your support. Our expenses for the year were $12,272.91 and our revenue was $12,722. Pretty close, but we are still in the black. We are most appreciative of those donors who live outside of our broadcast area and still provide a sizable percentage of our donations. They know the value of the service we are providing both in print and over the air.

Also, of course, if it were not for our officers, listed here, we would not be on the air no matter what our financial situation.  We have no employees. All of the work is accomplished by volunteers and some of their effort is even at the expense of the volunteer. Please keep them in your prayers.

There is still no progress on the decision for installing a satellite dish. This decision by the county will not be made until Spring. Pat Crosby has made some progress in determining where and when we can purchase the dish and he is also investigating the quality of the ductwork under the street.

Terri Messersmith has had an accident. She was hit by a car in a parking lot. Please pray for her early recovery.

If you missed a local show, take advantage of our local programming available for listening or downloading from Sound Cloud on the Internet. Type, or copy and paste, the web address below into your search engine and listen to some of the programs you may have missed or you may wish to hear again.

Thanks to Sound Cloud you can sit at home and listen to any talk. Go to the website listed above and then stroll down to the Teri’s Tea Time talk as well as many of Father Leonard’s homilies and Father Jack’s Semper Fi Show.

We could still use more technical support for our radio station and feel it would be an excellent opportunity for someone to contribute to this great evangelizing of our Catholic faith. Give me a call. 304-258-9189 and leave a message. If you know someone interested please ask them to call.

We have a new sponsor. This is their spot: “Berkeley Properties is proud to support WDTF. Our Company Specializes In All Types Of Renovation & Remodeling Projects For Your Home. We are professional construction service providers. Our services range from Kitchen Renovations, Bathroom Remodeling, Room Additions and even New Home Construction. Call us at 240 463 6999.

WDTF is supported only by donations. We do not receive support from the diocese. A detailed list of our expenditures is available upon request. No one receives compensation. Please pray for our mission and be as generous as you can.
