As you know our sharathon is coming up November 6-10. We were wondering if any of our listeners would like to share what WFST means to them - either before our sharathon and we could record it to play during that week or you could come on the air the week of sharathon and share how the Lord has blessed you with this ministry. If interested in doing something like this, give us a call here at WFST: 207-492-6000.

​October Bible Drive 
The annual October Bible Drive is about to get underway. All you need to do is find your old Bibles and mail them to collection points. These Bibles will be given to people that don’t have one and can’t afford one. Now look for those unused Bibles around the house and among your friends and send them to a collection point. A list of collection points and other info. can be found at the www.bf.org/bibledrive web site. Challenge others to do the same and you can help many others to read the Word of God. 




​Have you ever stopped to think how much you use Christian Radio? With ipods, tablets, and computers you can listen to Christian Radio almost anywhere and any time day or night. When you are alone at night and having a hard time going to sleep because of things on your mind, or maybe you just don’t feel well - you can tune in and listen to music or hear someone bring you a word of encouragement. Or during the week - you can tune in to Family Radio and listen to Bible teaching almost any time of the day - with Bible teachers like Chuck Swindoll, David Jeremiah, or Steve Brown. James Dobson & Dennis Rainey give 
advice on family problems; Rob West & Chuck Bentley give financial advice. You can get help on personal problems with your marriage, pornography plus many 
more on New Life Live! Family Radio can fill in the gaps when you can’t call someone to help you from your church. We have a prayer board where you can 
have a prayer request posted. With Internet streaming you can listen to us anywhere or anytime. Keep us in your prayers and remember us with your gifts.

​The Word For You Today 
 Who Are you Relying On? Jesus said, “Here on earth you will have many trials” (Jn 16:33 NLT). You solve one problem, and another one comes along to take its place. They’re not all big but they’re all necessary to your spiritual growth. How do you assess the strength of something? By testing it! The Bible says: “Don’t be...shocked that you are going through testing...it will prepare you” (IPe 4:12-13 CEV). Some of your most 
life-enriching experiences will come during your worst moments-when your heart is broken, when you feel abandoned, when you’re out of options, when your pain levels go through the roof-and you turn to God. That’s when you learn to pray heartfelt, honest-to-God prayers. When you’re in pain you don’t have the energy for superficial ones. And that’s when you discover, “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted” (Ps 34:18 NLT). God could have kept Joseph out of prison, Daniel out of the lions’ den, Jeremiah out of the slimy pit, and Paul from being shipwrecked, but He didn’t. As a result, each one of them was drawn closer to God and impacted the world around them. Your problems force you to look to God and depend on Him instead of yourself. This is especially hard on superachievers like Paul. “We...saw how powerless we were to help ourselves; but that was good, for then we put everything into the hands of God, who alone could save us” (2 Co 1:9 TLB). You’ll never know what God can do until God is all you’ve got. So place your needs into His capable, loving hands, and watch what happens. This article was from “The Word For You Today” .If you would like to have your own copy, drop us a line with a gift of $20.00 or more (to cover our costs for buying and mailing it) giving us your address and we will be glad to send you a copy next quarter.
