Radio broadcast features local minister as host

Amazing Grace will be a 10-minute Radio broadcast, starting in December
at 10:30 a.m. on KIUN.

Charles Tolbert, minister at First Assembly of God Church, in Pecos,
will be the host speaker on this daily, Monday through Friday broadcast.

The purpose of this daily devotional will be to study and share the
Bible and it's application to our everyday living experiences. This
broadcast will be an interdenominational program and will be designed to
offer challenging and new approaches to our spiritual lives in today's
hit-tech, fast moving society.

Guest speaker, Tolbert, will commence the broadcast, studying the Gospel
of John; chapter by chapter, verse by verse.

Those who study with the speaker, will learn how, "Faith and Working,"
is relevant to today as it was 2,000 years ago.
