In June 2016, as Julie was talking to a friend and marveling at the doors that opened in order for articles to be published and the radio and podcast interviews on which she was a guest. She questioned a loud, “I wonder what’s next?”
In that moment, she heard TV and shared with her friend, “You aren’t going to believe what I just heard, ‘TV!’”
Testing the Spirit, Julie took a step of faith (and obedience) and contacted a friend who in turn gave her the contact information for the person in charge of Christian programing at a local TV station. Taking another step of faith, she emailed the person; resulting in an appointment. The thirty-minute courtesy conversation, turned into much more.
Having returned home from the meeting, she received a phone call from a potential cameraman/editor within minutes. That was July 2016. It was an uphill battle to get the first show produced (temporary setbacks of all kinds), but Julie persevered and overcame the obstacles.
In March 2017, the first episode of Thirst No More and Bear Fruit was sent to over 100 public access stations across the US. This was another step of faith because most public access stations require a local sponsor.
Four stations responded and currently air the program; as well as another seventeen stations that are willing to air the show, with a local sponsor. The list of the public access stations is below.
