KAJN was happy to be a part of this year’s Focus on the Family 25th anniversary celebration. Our General Manager Bro. Barry Thompson and Program Manager Craig Thompson and his family were privileged to attend some of the events at the Colorado Springs site. KAJN is one of only a handful of radio stations that have carried the Focus on the Family radio broadcasts for the full 25 years.
The theme of the celebration was God’s Faithfulness. Bro. Barry summed his impressions of the trip saying, “It’s amazing to see what God has done. Dr. Dobson started the ministry at his kitchen table on a typewriter. Now, it is a multifaceted, international ministry, and Dr. Dobson has become one of the foremost spokespersons in the world for the Christian movement.”
After participating in the Louisiana state Bike Ride for the Family, Craig joined 150 other alumni and 100 Colorado riders for the final 70-mile leg of the nation-wide biking event. “It was grueling, but fun, and great fellowship,” Craig said. Including all state rides, the event raised $2.3 million for Focus on the Family.
The Thompsons were also able to sit in on a taping session for Adventures in Odyssey. Looking to the future, the ministry wants to reach even more people groups, and they are at work trying to decide who will eventually take over the leadership from Dr. Dobson.
Bro. Barry concluded, “I am encouraged that in 25 years the vision of Focus on the Family has not diminished. They want to reach every nation.”
