Positive Life Radio (PLR) continues to live up to its name as it spreads a positive influence regionally and throughout the world.

Evidence of this comes from the station's fall fundraiser, as listeners contributed nearly $650,000 to support their station.

"Once again, listeners displayed for us why we love living in the Inland Northwest," says Kevin Krueger, PLR general manager. "They continually step forward to make sure the ministry goes on so that God can continue to bless and change lives."

Those blessings can be felt around the world. For example, as part of the fundraiser, listeners sponsored 381 Water-of-Life filters from Compassion International. These filters provide pure, safe drinking water to families living in poverty in foreign countries.

"Partnering with Compassion on the Water-of-Life filters was an incredible win-win and a wonderful Hands & Heart project reminding us that we can help both local ministries and international ministries," Krueger says. "We are praying for the water filters as they are distributed to families in need over the next few months."

The Positive Life Radio Network is a cooperative effort of 17 broadcast outlets around the Inland Northwest in Washington, Oregon and Idaho. The stations are owned by Upper Columbia Conference, Growing Christian Foundation and Walla Walla University.
