WELF Dalton, Georgia
Report for July 2015
Local Praise the Lord
WELF recorded a local Praise the Lord program with host Tom Finlayson, a pastor in
the area. Pastor Finlayson's guest was country recording artist Cody McCarver, who
has a new gospel album. Cody shared about his struggle with alcoholism and how
those cravings were taken away after he came to Christ. Pastor Tom and Cody talked
about their similar journeys to faith in Christ and how they came to know God.

Joy in Our Town
WLEF's Joy In Our Town health segment this month featured Donna McConnico from
Signal Centers. This organization is a local non-profit that creates devices for disabled
individuals to make their lives easier. Donna brought examples of devices that bring
solutions to the daily challenges individuals with handicaps face.

individuals have and how they are being helped by the community of Orange Grove

TBN was represented at the Dade Family Collaborative this month. This organization
connects resources in three surrounding North Georgia communities to assist low
income families. TBN provides leadership to the Benevolence Task Force, which
partners with faith-based organizations and local businesses to meet the needs of
community members who fall through the cracks for public assistance. This month’s
meeting was about the newly formed Tristate Healthy Heart Coalition. TBN will be
providing leadership and consulting for this campaign in the months to come.
Our local TBN Praise-a-Thon continues on a bimonthly basis. This is an awesome
opportunity for our viewers to partner in the ministry of WELF. We had a wonderful time
this month as Pastor Steve Ball of Metropolitan Tabernacle hosted one of our Praise-aThons. Pastor Ball spoke about giving and our guest’s related testimonies of how God
blessed them during particularly trying times in their lives.

We are now posting video segments from Joy in Our Town and local Praise the Lord
programs for our viewers on our WELF Facebook page. We are getting great feedback
from our viewers and friends.
TBN was represented at the
Scenic City Women’s
Network (SCWN) monthly
luncheon. This month’s
keynote speaker was Doris
Woods, a missionary and
Bible teacher, who shared
with local business women
about what a woman of faith
looks like. Barbra talked about who we are in Christ and how this relates to the
marketplace. SCWN offers women in business and leadership positions support,
network opportunities, and mentorship with other women of faith.
WELF regularly receives encouraging letters from our viewers and partners. A Joy in
Our Town guest wrote: “Thank you for giving us the opportunity to come to TV-23 WELF
and for allowing us to share lessons with your audience, giving them skills to stay safe
and healthy. Thank you for all you do for your community every day!”
Another viewer wrote: “I want to thank you for airing Lifestyle Magazine [TBN] and Dr.
John McDougall [the Church Channel].... May God continue to bless your ministries!
