Reporter Lynn Huston with camera man Ollie set up their satalite truck in our back 40 promptly at 4:00 am Monday the 25th for live broadcast on the KOIN Morning Show. They also did several taped interviews that they edited and aired on the KOIN evening news a little before 6:00 pm. We heard from a neighbor that it also aired on KEZI channel 9 in Eugene on the Tuesday evening news.The subject was how we deal with no water. Mr. Huston had googled for a story on water he was doing for the morning show and came up with the Itemizer article done the week before on our water problem. He contacted us about featuring us for the morning show. Since we never asked for the Itemizer story or the TV interview, we felt it was the Lord's leading in our lives to go ahead with them. Like Queen Esther, maybe we were brought into the kingdom "for such a time as this". If our interviews can help the whole neighborhood to obtain water through public opinion, then so be it. If we needed more confirmation on whether this was the right thing to do or not, it came from Dennis' boss. Before we ever heard about the TV interview, she offered him Monday the 25th off because of all the Saturdays he's been having to work. Now you can't tell me that isn't a God thing!

We're so bummed! We forgot to get it taped...and didn't know it was on in the evening. Maybe they'll have a video segment on their website. We're going to check it out!
So...were you nervous? Did you feel it went well?

We didn't know it was going to be on in the evening either! So we didn't get it taped either! Bummer! We saw it though while we were eating dinner. All of a sudden there we were again! It was the taped and edited version and I liked the way they brought out the drought resistant plants that we have. Keep praying that the Lord will continue the work he obviously started here. He will need to move the hearts and minds of the city council. Impossible, except with our God of course!
