Foreword - "For It Is God Who Works"



        As you read Dolly Martin Monroe's account of the birth, growth and outreach of God's Word by KHCB Radio, there will be no doubt about its being a revelation of God's grace-even in the station's struggles of infancy.
        My joy was to serve as a volunteer station operator in the early days, then to participate in the management of the ministry and finally to serve as one of the Trustees of the work. During this span of over 30 years, God was at work: refining, cleansing, shaping an outreach to bring glory to Himself and to magnify the person of the Lord Jesus Christ. Of us He required only to "trust and obey."
        You will recognize the result as one of the choice miracles of the twentieth century and will with the apostle Paul say, concerning our Lord, "For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen." (Romans 11:36) KJV

   "After that whole generation had been gathered to their fathers, another generation grew up, who knew neither the LORD nor what he had done for Israel." (Judges 2:10)  

        The Lord repeatedly commanded the Children of Israel to teach their offspring about all the miraculous works He performed in Egypt and to teach them the ways He took care of them during their 40-year sojourn in the desert. Sadly, once they arrived in the promised land, the Israelites quickly forgot the Lord and what He had done for them. Thus, a whole generation grew up with no knowledge of all the incredible ways the Lord had worked to fulfill His promise to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. That is tragic. I do not want to see that lapse occur in my generation or in future generations.
        This same Lord who performed these miracles for the Children of Israel has also worked mightily to bring Christian Radio to Houston. During the course of this writing, I had to sit back in awe and let the tears fall as I learned of how the Lord worked over and over to bring about His plans for KHCB.
        Our God is an awesome God and He deserves to be honored and magnified. These words have been penned as they were told to me by Del Underwood, Pete Steigerwald and many others. My desire is that this and future generations will read this saga and learn all that God has done for KHCB since 1962. As you read, fill the heavens with songs of praise.
