A series of devotional thoughts first published in the "Transmitter," a publication of the Nazarene Amateur Radio Fellowship (NARF).
My U.S. General Class call sign is N0FOL - November Zero Foxtrot Oscar Lima.
We spent four years as Nazarene missionaries in Haiti. Telephones are scarce there, so amateur radio became an important communications tool. Within the country we used mainly 2-meters while 20 meters was used to communicate back to the U.S. In Haiti, my call sign was HH2HC.
My wife Barbara also holds a General Class amateur radio license. She is KC4CHB.
I've learned enough radio theory to get my General license. Right now I'm working on upgrading to Advanced.
I'm still amazed to think that putting a hundred watts of power into a little wire lets me talk to several different people all over the globe at the same time. It seems incredible that I could do that with a hundred watts. That much power in a light bulb only lights one room in my house.
It's possible, of course, because human beings finally
figured out that's how God had designed this one little part of
our universe. Every time I turn on the equipment in my shack, it's enough to make me sing,
"0 Lord, my God, when I in awesome wonder consider all . . . Thy hands have made ...
Then sings my soul.,. . . How great Thou art."

| Amateur Radio Christian Fellowship
day is an annual September event to allow Amateurs to showcase the hobby to churches and
to contact missionaries.|
Amateurs are encouraged to take a radio to church and demonstrate Amateur Radio to the congregation by making contacts with other churches and missions groups worldwide.
Announce this event to Amateur Radio clubs and operators in your area as well as to the local media. If you have any ideas or suggestions, please contact KB9IBW. Let's work together to bless our churches, missions groups, and give exposure to this great hobby to those who may become future Amateur Operators.
