Dear Radio Friends,
The Bright Spot Hour is opperating in our 76th year of broadcasting without ever being off the air. It was 76 years ago that my grandfather began the broadcast. By the grace of God, the miracle has been accomplished. I am trusting the Lord for the next 24 years, bringing us to the 100th celebration. I will be 77 years of age at the 100th anneversary celebration, and by the grace of God, I anticipate being alive to celebrate that. Please check the link on this page that will take you to our You Tube channel, where you can find a video of every Bright Spot Hour broadcast.
My meeting this week in Bakersville, N.C. has been cancelled. As the broadcast is recorded so far in advance, it is not possible to correct the annoucements before they get to the air. My meeting in Dixie, West Virginia next week has been cancelled as well, along with the Sunday meetinbg in Mountain City, Tennessee the following week. I am looking forward to preaching for the Rev. Danny Felty the last week of August in Bristol, Virginia at the Bradley Street Baptist Church.
The Bright Spot Hour can now be heard locally from Easley, South Carolina from WELP 104.2 FM, 1360 kHz. The Bright Spot Hour was on this station in the 1960's and 1970's. I appreciatye Wilkins Communications for the opportunity to return to this fine radio station. The program can be heard Monday through Friday at 10:00 am and again at 10:00 pm. I have personally enjoyed hearing the Bright Spot Hour in the night before going to bed. The station can be streamed by looking up WELP in Easley, South Carolina and you will be directed to their site. You can also stream the program from our station of origination, WGCR in Pisgah Forest, N.C. Download their app and hear the program at 9:00 am and pm.
Let me invite you to visit a new website we are building: drbencarper.com. Important informantion will be there for those in the upstate of South Carolina.
The site plans are being drawn for the moving of the Bright Spot Hour building and its attachment to our present Real Estate office. This will be a tremindous blessing for the Bright Spot Hour and the ministry through radio the Lord has allowed us to have for 77 years.
Please pass the link to the site along to all your e-mail contacts and we can increase our listeners, reaching as many people as we can with the gospel of Christ.
Dr. Ben Carper
