Rhema FM Blue Mountains
To the Radio Rhema Staff, My family vacationed in Sydney and the Blue Mountains this July and August. We were blessed by the radio ministry of Radio Rheema. We were introduced to the station by my sister-in-law Bernadette MacNevin and my nephew Scott MacNevin in Penrith. May God richly bless your radio ministry as you bless those who you minister to. Sincerely, Kevin MacNevin & family, Venice, Florida
I wish to express my support for Rhema FM. I enjoy the temporary transmissions enormously & hope the station obtains a permanent licence.
Dear Rhema Staff,
Thanks for all the effort you put into Rhema, it's great to hear 100% Christian Music on the radio. I can't wait till you get a fill-time licence, & I'll continue to pray that it will happen.
Dear Radio Rhema,
Just writing to show my support and appreciation of a total Christian radio station.
I listen to most of the three days which you broadcast. I enjoy the mixture of music and preaching segments.
It is about time someone took a stand in the city of Sydney to preach the gospel through the airwaves. I like the non-denominational approach as it includes the entire Christian community.
We pray that the broadcasting board will give you a licence to constantly broadcast a permanent Rhema radio station 7 days a week, 24hrs a day. I live about 30 mins. drive from the mountains and the reception is quite clear at home, but it starts to fade around Parramatta, and I start to lose reception in the car. This doesn't deter me though.
Keep up the great work and just believe God for a permanent licence.
I am writing this letter to you, as I would very much like to see a Christian radio station on the air 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I enjoy most types of music, but, being a Christian I feel very much that Christians are left out when it comes to the music industry.
I have three children and I, like so many other parents, would feel better if there was a station that was safe to tune into and not be subjected to the foul and abusive language that is so often heard on the airwaves today.
I do hope that you would consider this request and give some attention to this matter as the radio, like the rest of the media, plays a very large part in the standards and moral attitudes of the people of this country, and it would be so nice just to tur n on the radio and hear music that you can understand and hear and actually listen to without cringing.
Rhema FM is such a station and I and many people would like to support this venture, so with your help it could be made possible.
I write to you to show my support for radio station Rhema FM Blue Mountains. As a christian and a mother of 3 children, it concerns me greatly the type of radio programs that my children and others can be exposed to, that are filled with rude, sugg estive and inappropriate music and discussion and other programming.
To my joy I discovered Rhema FM, only to find that they currently have only a temporary licence. Rhema's programming brought a real joy into my home and heart, with special programs for the children, items to encourage and edify listeners instead of radio s' typical noise, and music that brings a message of hope to our land. I write to you to urge you to allow this radio station to be granted a full time licence to broadcast Sunday to Saturday every week, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, as soon as possibl e.

I am writing in support of Rhema FM Blue Mountains, 99.9FM, being granted a permanent broadcasting licence. As far as I know there is only one other Christian radio station, 2CBA-FM. With all the pop stations, I feel it is discrimination to deny Chris tians another radio station. Rhema FM plays contemporary Christian music, different to 2CBA. I have only been listening to Rhema FM for three weeks, I thouroughly enjoy it. I really miss it the days it doesn't broadcast because at present, it only broadcasts three days per week, with a couple of months on and a couple of months off.
I find the Bible readings, Christian commentary, and special segments like Focus on the Family, encouraging, helpful and uplifting as I go about my daily duties.
I think every effort should be made to grant Rhema FM a permanent licence, enabling those who want, to have an alternative to pop music and to hear the Christian message proclaimed.
