Praise the Lord everybody. We want to thank each and every one of you who have supported HGR during the last 11 years. God has allowed us the honor of doing what we love the most – sharing sermons, music, and LIVE conferences that bless us and others.
As many of you know, Holy Ghost Radio was God given to Jeff Hoffer in the last part of the 90′s. The concept took its initial shape on December 2 2002. That was the first time HGR came on the internet airways. on May 4 of 2004 I started working with Jeff on RES – Radio Espiritu Santo, the Spanish sister station of HGR, which is currently not running due to lack of interest by the Spanish preachers and churches.
I have to confess, I like many didn’t believe in HGR at first. I met Jeff during No Limits 2003 in Sacramento Ca. He gave me his card. As soon as I walked out of the room, I tossed the card in the trash. I was going thru a very hard time in my life. I was cynical and bitter towards everybody, even my own shadow. I was working at two AM radio stations in Sacramento Ca as a programmer at the time. I counted Jeff as another Pentecostal with lots of ideas and no continuation on any future goals. I didn’t believe in anyone at that time. Was I in church, yes, but I was lost in church – like the lost coin. I had given him my number. He called me during the first part of 2004. He proposed me taking over RES – Radio Espiritu Santo. I started running the station. God worked on me and hooked me ever since on working with Jeff. Holy Ghost Radio opened up for me to start running it as well sometime during 2006. I had a 10 year plan for Holy Ghost Radio when I started programming it. I am glad to mention that we have accomplished most of the goals for that ten year plan in a span of five or six years. HGR has become my passion. Its a part of my daily life.
God has done a great change in my life since 2003. I have grown with HGR and HGR has grown with me. Jeff and I have developed a great relationship thru the years. During my years of struggle he has been one of my closest friends. We have invested our lives into HGR. Our wives complain jokingly that we spend more time on HGR related things than we do with them. We both have very understanding and supportive families. There are more great things to come in the next few months at HGR. We have a lot of surprises. I just want to take the time to thank everyone who has tuned in and spread the word about HGR. Your testimonies and what HGR means to you have inspired us to do what we do.
