The Lord is risen, precious friend!

Because of this fact, all things are possible, for nothing is too hard for our God. Jesus Christ has been “declared the Son of God with power…by the resurrection from the dead” (Romans 1:4). And due to His willing death and His glorious resurrection, when you put your full weight on Him, your full confidence in Him, you can absolutely know you are His beloved child. You can say, “I can do all things [that God wants me to do each day] through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13) since “no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly” (Psalm 84:11). He knows you and has made you to be fulfilled only in Him. So let’s rejoice together, dear brother, dear sister!

And please rejoice as we bring you up to date with some Old Fashioned Revival Hour news. As you may recall, in February we had the wonderful opportunity of going on the air over WFAX (100.7-fm; 1220 am) in the Washington, DC area – not only on Sundays at 1:30 pm, but also Monday through Friday at 1:00 pm. Additionally, for nearly a year OFRH has been heard on Sundays at 5:00 pm on KXXT (1010 on the am dial) in Phoenix, Arizona. But now they have added us to their Monday through Friday schedule at 11:30 am. Then, just last week we began in Little Rock, Arkansas, on Sundays over KDIS 99.5-fm at 7:00 am and also 4:30 pm. Both KXXT and KDIS are operated by Salem Communications, the leading Christian network in America, and we are thrilled indeed and so grateful to the Lord for Salem’s personal interest in OFRH. Please pray with us that your generous gifts which go to cover this airtime will be invested and redeemed by our Savior in lives impacted and changed.

One believer in Fredericksburg, Virginia, wrote recently: “Dear Brother Khanchalian, enclosing a small token of appreciation for your dedication to keeping OFRH on the air. What a blessing each week to hear Dr. Fuller, the quartet, choir, Rudy Atwood, Mrs. Fuller with the letters. Thank you and may God continue to bless you. P.S. I’ve been enjoying ‘Waxing the Gospel’ and the CDs very much.” And that, of course is
a reference to the 408-page book that documents the discovery and restoration of wax cylinder sound recordings from the years 1890 to 1900. The book, with its three CDs of those historic recordings, is still available for purchase from us.

And let me remind you that we also have approximately forty music CDs available. We’re featuring two of those CDs this month. They are “An Old Fashioned Easter” and “In the Springtime” – each with some inspirational songs by the quartet and some by the choir. They are $12.50 each, which includes shipping. (California residents must add 8.75% sales tax.) The resurrection of our Lord provides the reason we can echo Exodus 15:1 –“I will sing to the Lord, for He has triumphed gloriously!”

Resting in Christ’s triumph,

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.
