Alec, Sasha, and Radio

While Alec and Sacha were here in the studio, I set them at the podmics and headsets so they could hear themselves how it sounded with the professional mics and headphones. They had a little fun conversation and then I thought to hit the record button and caught the last bit of their conversation. Today, I decided to doctor it up a little with the features I am learning on the recording equipment and the software. Alec was not really up close to his mic and there were a bunch of bump noises as well as email notifications that were coming in on my computer at the time the recorder was going. Even still, I tried to clean it up as best I could (I’m still very green at this stuff) and then add some effects so that I could send them a copy as a fun memory. It was a good learning experience for me to explore more features and I think it will be special for them to hear.

They left yesterday, so I was a little sad. I sent them the audio file just now (haven’t heard back from them yet), but I thought I’d pass it on to you too so you could hear their voices and maybe be inspired in your prayers for them. On Sacha’s leg, she has a huge tattoo. Within the tattoo are two scripture verse references. One says “Psalm 25”, and the other says “2 Corinthians 12:10”. Reading the Pslam may tell you something that is in her own heart if she has had it tattooed on her body. May the Father draw them to Christ in true conscious union with the Lord Jesus.

Some other exciting news I received today from Russell regarding radio broadcasting is that through a rather miraculous event today, Russell was able to acquire some AM broadcasting equipment (which new would cost well over 1 million dollars, but Russell got it for about 40k!) This means that the programs will not only be broadcast on SW and FM but now also all through the night on AM, which likely the P’s will be able to hear even on  regular AM radios! This is a huge addition!

Another wonderful piece of news is that we finally figured out what the interface problem was on my brand new equipment here for music. It was a defective cable. We bought a new Thunderbolt 3 cable and voila!… it worked! So, soon I will delve into the music side of the ministry again. For now, I’m trying to keep up with one radio Bible teaching lesson per day, as the Lord leads.

Thanks again for your prayers and supporting-encouraging words.


Psalm 25
A Psalm of David.
“To You, O LORD, I lift up my soul. O my God, I trust in You; Let me not be ashamed; Let not my enemies triumph over me. Indeed, let no one who waits on You be ashamed; Let those be ashamed who deal treacherously without cause. Show me Your ways, O LORD; Teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; On You I wait all the day. Remember, O LORD, Your tender mercies and Your lovingkindnesses, For they are from of old. Do not remember the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions; According to Your mercy remember me, For Your goodness’ sake, O LORD. Good and upright is the LORD; Therefore He teaches sinners in the way. The humble He guides in justice, And the humble He teaches His way. All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth, To such as keep His covenant and His testimonies. For Your name’s sake, O LORD, Pardon my iniquity, for it is great. Who is the man that fears the LORD? Him shall He teach in the way He chooses. He himself shall dwell in prosperity, And his descendants shall inherit the earth. The secret of the LORD is with those who fear Him, And He will show them His covenant. My eyes are ever toward the LORD, For He shall pluck my feet out of the net. Turn Yourself to me, and have mercy on me, For I am desolate and afflicted. The troubles of my heart have enlarged; Bring me out of my distresses! Look on my affliction and my pain, And forgive all my sins. Consider my enemies, for they are many; And they hate me with cruel hatred. Keep my soul, and deliver me; Let me not be ashamed, for I put my trust in You. Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, For I wait for You. Redeem Israel, O God, Out of all their troubles!”
