Dear co-workers and friends of the Old Fashioned Revival Hour,

It is a true joy and humble privilege to greet each of you again. Thank you so much for standing with us, and special thanks if you’re among those who called or wrote during Founders Month (June). It’s still not too late if you wish to call or send that note of encouragement. The following came to us June 9 by email from a gentleman who listens on the Internet: “When I was in my teens, my folks used to listen to the Old Fashioned Revival Hour on Sunday afternoon on KPDQ when we lived in southwest Washington. These would have been live broadcasts, as this was in the late ‘50s and early ‘60s. I did not realize OFRH had returned to the air until we were spending an extended time in the Portland, Oregon area and I heard the Hour on the radio. I live in the Detroit area and the Hour is not on any of the local stations. I am blessed by Dr. Fuller’s messages as well as the music. Thanks again and blessings.”

Well, we certainly wish we were on in or near Detroit. However, due to a generous gift from a grateful listener, I’m delighted to share that we began broadcasting last month on the Salem Broadcasting affiliate in Seattle, Washington, KGNW (820 on the AM dial) at 4:00 pm each Sunday. So if you’re in the Seattle area, please tune in. And if OFRH is not on the air where you live and you’d like to have the program on your favorite station, we’d love to hear from you.

Dr. Fuller will continue preaching from the Book of Genesis throughout the month of July. So if you would like to read ahead, spend a little time in Genesis, chapters 13, 22, 24 and 28. On Friday, July 7, our board of directors will meet, Lord willing, at Salem’s national headquarters in Camarillo, California, to review where this ministry has gone over the last 4 months and to discern the Lord’s direction for the months ahead. We would be so grateful if each of you would cover this session in prayer.

We trust the music and message of the Old Fashioned Revival Hour will lift your spirit and empower you for the Savior’s good pleasure! Something else that might lift your spirit has been hidden away for many years and just recently came out into the light. And we want to offer it to you. It’s a supply of Heavenly Sunshine, the book that was truly a labor of love by Mrs. Fuller. She sorted through perhaps thousands of letters and chose the best-of-the-best to share with OFRH listeners far and wide. Reading how God used the ministry of OFRH in the lives of so many people will bless you because “one generation shall praise Your works to another, and shall declare Your mighty acts…. They shall utter the memory of Your great goodness…” (Psalm 145: 4 & 7). We’ll include the book with any CD of your choice for just $16.00. (If you live in California, please add $1.44 tax.)

Rejoicing in God’s goodness,

Michael Khanchalian, D.D.S.

    What a blessing to once again hear these radio broadcasts! My father died very suddenly in 1932 when I was not quite three years old. My grandmother, “Mama” Mills, came to live with us, and I remember at an early age joining her in the sun parlor of our home to hear Dr. Fuller preach God’s word and listen to the gospel music of the OFRH choir accompanied by Rudy Attwood on the piano. What a treasure!

    My grandmother came to live with us when my father died in August 1932. It was in the depth of The Great Depression, and I would be three years old that November. I remember as a young boy sitting with Mama Mills in the sun parlor of our home as she tuned in The Old Fashion Revival Hour radio program and we heard the gospel music and preaching from The Word by Dr. Charles E. Fuller. What a blessing at age 85 to again be able to access this great resource through the Internet. May God bless these transmissions to every listener! Amen

  3. May Jesus bless you as you reach out to our sin soaked world, who will soon see their Judge, or Saviour!

    I grew up listening to the OFRH in the 1950s from Radio Luxemberg between 11pm and midnight each Thursday night.I have enjoyed the music for many years and I even managed to obtain some transript discs of the broadcasts from the 1950s which have now been digitally remastered by a friend in the USA so that I can relive the broadcasts on CD.I can now listen on line and praise God for the technology that makes it possible.I got to know Dick Brown in 1997 during the 50years celebrations at Fuller and kept in touch and visited him several times until the Lord called him home.

    Amelia, I thank you for your letter. I am truly humbled after reading it. No matter what our circumstances the Lord will use us to reach out for others. I too have had chronic pain for decades. For too long I dwelt on the pain and wished that my life would be shortened because of it. For many years the Holy Spirit had kept after me to repent and put the Lord God back as the directer of my life. Earlier this year I finally decided that nothing in life was going to be satisfying or able to fill that great void in my heart and soul. I got down on my knees and prayed earnestly to be forgiven and to put Christ at the head of my life. Since then God has given me a peace that i haven’t experienced since my youth. I have given God my future and I do not spend time worrying what is in store for me. Instead I live each day to the fullest and ask god to give me wisdom, strength, and power to witness to others by my example and to witness directly to them when he leads. I have as many or more problems facing me now than ever before but my Lord God is always faithful to give me wisdom and the means to work things out. I now love to witness to others because I want them to experience the awesome peace the God provides without fail.
    Sister Amelia, you are in my prayers for I know the challenges that chronic pain presents. May God continue to bless you and help you in your life daily in your ministy to others. God will surely bless you for it.

  6. I first found you on the radio in 1971,I believe. I was just baptised in the Holy Spirit and I was so excited about Jesus and frustrated that all my life I had not been told about the power of the Holy Spirit. When that happened I was praying for all sorts of people in the my kitchen. The first year, sixteen people came for prayer and accepted Jesus. I was a Catholic and on fire for God. I was able to have the Lord also baptize my 80 year old mother. She lived far away in another state. I went to visit her in ND and she got a new dose of real Jesus stuff. My mom said to me she saw such peace in me compared to her other children. That’s what the Holy Spirit does! I was widowed at age 32 when my husband died at age 34 after our 5th child was born.

    My life has been very hard. I’m going to be 80 this mo. I’m post-polio and extreme pain. I will possibly live 20 more years and wish it would not be because of the pain and isolation.

    I want to explain my view on the financial problems existing now. Our world is full of rebellious people who are rejecting God. Combined with the severe unemployment and loss of homes, homelessness, the enemy feels he is having a victory because so many ministries are failing now. But we have to be bold and reach out to people on the street, whereever we go daily. It is so ripe for harvest now. The hurting people will pray with us.
    I prayed with a man that fixed my chair at a sheel metal shop. He listened and shared w/me. He was the owner and refused to take payment. So I got another chance to pray with him when I went back to give him two magnetic necklaces for his 9 yr old daughter. He was a Catholic and hadn’t been to church in years. But he prayed with me and teared up. Same thing just happened at Les Schwabs (tires & brakes) when I asked a man if he was having a rough day. He teared up as we prayed right there in the waiting area. I sat down and took his hand and there Jesus was,,, I’ve prayed w/people at Fred Meyers often.
    The Christians are not doing enough to witness and we can be bold. Speak up—don’t be embarrassed. That’s a lie of the devil. Embarrassment is just pride anyway, afraid others might think we are weird. That’s another of his lies.
    My parents lived to be 100. I am the youngest of nine children and seven are still alive. My other siblings do not know about the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. I led my sister’s four children to Jesus. Like “Jesus could convert no one in Nazareth”, sort of applies to me as many family members felt I was peculiar now. I led my oldest sibling to Jesus about one year before he died. He was a pilot, WWII, shot down and suffered pain. He had a PHD and had turned his back on God, doubting His reality. One visit to him in Montana going to see my parents and he found Jesus . I never knew or expected he’d die so soon but he was ready. He knew Jesus! Wow!

    I want to thank you for your loving broadcasts etc. I have a computer only because my neighbor provides/connects me to his PC by wireless for free. How blessed I am. Yet I need prayer and am struggling financially and in spirit as so many sadnesses and so many medical needs. I see Pain Specialist. Neurologist, Orthopedic surgeon, Gastroenterologist, G.P. and more. I get so tired of going to doctors and the cost of gas!
    This is too lengthy. But I wanted to thank you for your love and I shall pray for new donors. You have blessed me beyond expression. I love to hear your music as you come on the radio. I wish I had a way to tape your broadcasts so I could listen again as I’m lying down to sleep.
    I’m nothing in this world and yet I am something to Jesus. You are doing the Lord’s blessed work. It is the Spirit of God coming through strongly over the airwaves. The Spirit is so evident even tho many do not have it, the Holy Spirit draws them with your ministry. Praise His Holy Name! I love you all. Thank you.
