Brand New *
By supporting our station, you make a huge impact in several lives. Listen to a few audio testimonies that we have
received in the past few months.
Testimony 1 -
John, thank you so much for playing the song today I can only imagine by Mercy Me.
Powerful song that brings me to my knees every time I hear it. It brings such good memories
my sister used to call me early in the mornings and ask me to sing with her over the phone
this song.She was laying in her hospital bed with lung cancer.I would tell her sis I always have
time for you. Its not goodbye its til we meet again. We will be together again one day.Have a
Blessed Week and thanks for what you do.
Thank you so much for doing “My Golden Valentines” Not only is it a great
thing to remember those in assisted living and nursing homes. But it is a testimony
of Gods love, for you to put this on and carry it out. May God bless you.
Thank you so much for your determination in reaching out to my area in
western ND. I have found that whenever I would listen to country or rock-n-roll
music, I would eventually become bored with the station and begin scanning the
channels for something to uplift me and I would feel a void inside. With KSLT I
no longer feel the desire to scan other channels. I no longer feel the void. KSLT
fills my heart with joy. All the DJ\s on KSLT are so upbeat and fun to listen to as
well. Thank you all for helping me become closer to the Lord. God Bless You All.
Over the past few years I have survived things I never dreamed I would be able to survive.
After things I had no control over happened to me, I no longer wanted to live. Last
summer God started working on my heart through KSLT and began the process of
healing and forgiveness and I began to live again... In some ways it has felt like God
has moved so quickly and other times it has felt like it is so slow. Until recently, I had
thought that I'd forgiven the people who hurt me. I believe I had to a degree, however,
through the power of the spirit, God has shown me I have still been carrying around
"the sack of potatoes". The other night I couldn't fall asleep and the words to Matthew
West's song, "Forgiveness", kept repeating over and over in my head. I realized I needed
take the final step in forgiveness. Forgiveness is freedom. Forgiveness is letting go. I wrote
a letter of forgiveness, and I pray God will open the doors and some day enable me to use
this for the power of good. Thank you. Keely
Great job with Hills Alive. I know all of that hard work and effort goes unnoticed a lot,
but the community really appreciates the event. I know our family did.
I keep KSLT on 24/7 in my home and in my car. I try listening to other stations but I
always turn it back to KSLT. There is no replacement for the the truth, love, power and
inspiration that talks to the soul and heart through the Christian music that is played. I don't
know how I ever got along without KSLT.
KSLT has been my source of comfort for over 20 years. I listen daily and the messages
in the music help me feel connected to my Creator. In the past few years my parents both
passed away. More recently I lost a nephew, the son of my baby brother. Only 24, he was
diagnosed in March with a rare, aggressive form of cancer. He passed away on July 30.
Listening to MercyMe's "I Can Only Imagine," and "Finally Home," has helped me to
put everything in perspective, that this is not all there is and my Father in Heaven has gone
to prepare a place for us, if we are willing to serve Him and follow His commandments. God
Bless you, KSLT.
to 107.1 and the song blessings came on. after that song I felt that it was not such a bad day after that.
I would like to accept the 30 day challenge. My mother told me about this station this morning and
I drive a delivery truck and find the music and comments uplifting when I get to listen.
I also Pastor a church in Sundance and appreciate your witness of God's Word and truth.
I want you to know how much I appreciate what you and everyone are doing at KSLT.
I was in secular radio years ago but do not want to compromise my faith any longer. I
would love to be in christian radio but wait for God's calling.
Anyway, I travel for work and listen to you every chance I'm in the Hills, Dickinson or Pierre.
Thanks for the strong signal KSLT.
Take care and thanks for all you do and your great voice!!~~ Jeff Sioux Falls
I actually took the 30 day challenge last year after reading your Bill board on my way home from
work and have listened to you ever since. I am making a point of listening to you daily after Christmas
AGAIN. When my kids are in the car, they listen to you as well. Thanks for all you do!! God Bless!
When I lived in Aberdeen, SD I started listening to KLOVE When I got to this area I really
wanted to find the Christian Radio Station. When I found you I was totally trilled. Any more I
only listen to Christian music and I'm comfortable to let my three-year-old listen to my ipod
without having to listen in.
I have been blessed to hear KSLT since I moved to Bozeman, MT almost 8 years ago I was
sad when I moved here from Sturgis and then I connected to the internet and you are now here
with me.I love you KSLT. Listening to you is sometimes like marching through the gates of heaven!

I am 14 years old, and a former pop music listener. I decided to give up that genre of music
for lent and listen to Christian radio and I got hooked! It's amazing what God can do! You
guys are awesome and I listen every day!
I just wanted to Thank you for your words of encouragement and all your words of love
through Christ Jesus.... You are awesome and not to mention one who has a very beautiful voice!
I look forward to listening to you each and every afternoon! May God continue to bless your life
and keep you safe! Praise God, for God is an awesome God!!
A lot of people have died in my life even though some of them I barely know I'm
still sad because they were very important. KSLT always plays songs that make me
remember them and it makes me very happy. You rock KSLT! You keep playing
those songs, they help me get through my day and makes a lot of other people happy too.
My best friend's mom died on the Saturday the day before Mother's Day. When I heard about it
I just cried. I prayed to God to help her family and to make sure Janet is taken good care of.
I listened to KSLT all the way to Bowman. I felt a lot happier listening to the music
but I was still a bit sad. When I heard a song I never heard of before I stopped crying completely
and started to smile. Thanks KSLT
This morning my husband & I were eating breakfast. I said "lets turn on the radio", there's
a song called "How great is our God", and last night we picked our daughter up from a
retreat she was on over the weekend. We went in with her and prayed and sang with them
for a while. One prayer we were repeating is How great is our God.
Anyway I turned on the radio and the very next song was How Great is our God. It was
in another language but still very beautiful and moving.
Thank-you again. I took the challenge about 3 months ago and am still listening!!
My new favorite song is "Live Like That" by Sidewalk Prophets. It has become my challenge
song to remind me each day how I need to live, walking side by side with Jesus! Thank you
Sidewalk Prophets for helping me remember.______________________________________________________
I have been listening to KSLT..and I am so blessed...BUT today I am struggling
with the situation of my life....it boils down to me being selfish....John Derrek just played
HE SAID by Group 1 Crew...I needed that...Knowing God might let me bend but He
won't let me break!!!!!Thank You God for holding me...and for your servants at KSLT!
Just wanted to say Thank You! Love your station! I've been listening to KSLT for 4 or
5 years now and as everyone else, am hooked! I find it so relaxing and calming especially
on my hour commute to and from work. And listening to KSLT is a must while driving around
Rapid City, something has to keep the road rage away! I work night shifts and find listening to
KSLT gets me in the right mindset for my shift ahead of me. Then with the early morning traffic
coming home, as I noted above it helps keep me calm. If it were not for KSLT the few times
I've had to drive back and forth from work in a snow storm, there is no way I would have
made it. Your music helps me remember God is with me especially in the times I may be
fearful, stressed or unhappy. Life is Good!
I enjoy listening to KSLT It helps my faith grow by listening to the songs and
people's testimonies. God has showed me how to be changed by the songs people sing.
Thank You for your ministry God Bless.
I lived in NW South Dakota in 1985 and lived in Gillette for two years (1986-87)after that.
I listened to KSLT all the time when I lived there. I live in Minnesota now and still listen
(on the internet) quite a bit. I even let it play at night when I am sleeping! Keep playing the
great music and glorifying God! Thanks for your hard work in reaching out to the lost and
hurting people. God bless you!
Thank you very much for the awesome doughnuts and coffee this morning!
Our office really enjoyed the extra fun for the day! Your station is such a blessing in
more ways than you will ever know!
I just wanted to thank you for the words you spoke last night on KSLT about not living in fear..
I fight that daily, and those words encouraged me to work harder at not giving those fears power in my life.
I just love your radio station. I have posted many different prayer requests and I know because of that I have a lot
of people praying out there for many different people's needs and prayers are being answered. Thank you so much
for your wonderful radio station and website that can reach more and more people. Praise the Lord.

We visited Rapid City and the Black Hills area about six years ago. We fell in love with area and with KSLT radio.
My wife and I hope to move that direction after our youngest graduates high school. Tonight I am listening to
KSLT via the web from my home in Missouri. I am amazed that you have so many Christian radio stations
broadcasting out of the Black Hills. People of the hills support your local Christian station or it might be taken
over by a national "positive encouraging" network and not be so local anymore like where I currently live.
Thank you so much for your commitment to quality radio and the message of God's Word.
I couldn't get your station for a while and it was MISSED!! My day just isn't the same without KSLT!
It helps me keep a positive attitude for my day!
I listen to KSLT every morning while doing chores outdoors. The music is uplifting, inspiring and really helps
me get through chores; especially during what was a challenging winter. It's become hard for me to listen to
the music on other stations...I love the music that KSLT shares with our area. Thank you for your ministry!
As a student, I have found myself at times drifting away from God. Over time my relationship with the
Lord grew weak. In the mean time, my faith has been tested in many ways... ultimately leading me back to
my creator. I listen to KSLT on my way to school, clinical, work, and the in between. You were a stepping
stone when I needed it most. Thank you!
I am only 14 years old but the music to me is unbelievable most of my class mates tease me about a lot of things.
But when I hear the music I feel as if all the things that they say are nothing more than a tiny bug or air or something.
I live in Bowman and listen to this every night, morning, and evening. I feel as if God is with me. THANK YOU KSLT,
THANK YOU SO MUCH. I LOVE THE MUSIC.
My mother passed away after battling cancer for almost 2 years and when the anniversary of
her death came this past November 2010 I found myself still feeling the loss like it was yesterday.
I miss her so much and she was my families rock and when she left, we all closed down, I suppose
we all was dealing with her death in our own way. Her and had a special bond and what i learned from
her was that there is a God and all I have to do is pray and he will hear me. She love the father almighty.
What helped me was listening to this station all the songs touched my heart so and helped me get through
some of the pain I was feeling everyday. Thank you to all the gospel singers who sing and share there love
for god and to KSLT for playing the music for all of us to hear. Thank you and God Bless!! The music is
beautiful, keep playing it.KSLT... I want you to know I found you through our lord Jesus Christ.
My husband took a 30ft. fall off the roof of our home 4years ago and he was given a 15% percent chance
of survival. Today he is working full time, walking, talking and driving. He was given a TRUE MIRACLE
from God.After he came home(only 6 weeks in hospital) I was taking him to therapy and trying to find a good
station on the radio and found yours, it was playing Mountain of God. You are all I listen to in my car and on
my computer.You got us through some very tough days, now you get me through the day to day stuff
and I thank you for that! God bless you all and keep doing what you do!By the way keep playing the
"Happy Snappy" song on Fridays LOOOOOVVVVVVVVVEE IT!!!!!!!!
There are not words to describe the way KSLT impacts my life. It makes good days better,
bad days turn into good days, and calms my soul. I just wanted to thank you for everything you
and KSLT does for us. But I want to thank you personally for praying over me at Charlotte Russe.
It was so nice to tell you how the song beautiful by Mercy Me helped me realize God is bigger then
my eating disorder. I just want to say thank you because my life is so much better with KSLT in it.
Jamie, we want to meet you in person so Lance can thank you looking at you again for saving him.
Thanks so very much. We send all our love and prayers to you and your family and we cant wait to
be able to actually thank the woman who saved my husband, my kids father and just want to thank
you in person. Thanks. All our love.
Just a quick note to let you know how awesome it is to be able to hear you online. :) I moved to
Montgomery, AL from Rapid City and I have missed this station more than I can convey. Once
I am settled in at work, I pull up this site, put in my earbuds and work with the uplifting music and
message that comes from KSLT. I'll miss Hills Alive this year, but I'm already planning my vacation
for next July so my daughter and I will be able to attend next year. This is still the best Christian station
I have ever listened to... God Bless~ K-
Thank you for your encouraging words. They have blessed me. Today marks the 5th anniversary of our
daughter's death from breast cancer We know that God is working All things out for good. She is with
Him-what a comfort that is! Mary
I can't tell you how this has blessed me. We are dealing with a prodigal son who just left for college in
Omaha this August. He has quit school and is involved in gender confusion and we are reeling, but we
know that God is working, that He is good, and that we don't have to be strong enough....Thank you
for the ray of hope. We have been over 18 years of praying and believing God has great plans for our
son-I am still believing and claiming the promise that He who began a good work in our son is faithful
to complete it. Thank you for your encouragement to me to keep going that God has good things for me.
May God bless you-(and me, if that is not too selfish)
I listen to KSLT is so Amazing. I brightens my day.
I thank you all for having the radio station. It has helped my husband, my kids and myself so much.
My husband has been through a lot and so have I and I think that is why god brought him to me.
He is my soul my life, I love him so much as much as my kids. Thank you god so much. He has lost
two of his brothers and is losing his last do to cancer. Thanks to God he is still here with us
if it wasn't for you all he would have killed himself, thank you God and the station. Tina Walls
KSLT outreach, listeners, and staff;
I would like to thank you for all of the positive messages you send throughout the Black Hills Area.
I heard you on the radio while working at a nursing home. I tuned in on my way to and from work
since. Your message of God has helped me when I needed the presence of God most. Love Always!
Keep up the amazing work!
I had KSLT on this morning as I was praying for my sons health. Being a man I try to control my emotions
but tears were streaming down my face. Just at that moment "There Will be a Day" came on the radio
revealing the Revelation 21 Promise of a day with no more tears. This was the encouragement I needed
at exactly that time. I thank God for His promise and KSLT for helping me daily in my Christian Walk.
My mother-in-law was hospitalized for just 10 days prior to stepping into the arms of Jesus. During
that time we had around 70 family members visit her. We had three different vehicles “loaned” to us
by friends so everyone would have wheels.
After driving or riding in around 8 different vehicles during those ten days I realized that each one
had the station set on 107.1, KSLT. The last night of my mother-in-law’s life I walked into her room
at the nursing home. My sister-in-law had brought in a boom box so that Laura would have music. She
loved music. The station was set to, you guessed it, KSLT. The music of KSLT comforted many of us
during those difficult days. Even as one of us was with mother 24/7 we were listening to KSLT as it healed our hearts.
Thank you for coming to the Pierre area! We've lived here for 8 years without a Christian radio station. Yours is wonderful, a miracle even!
Thank you. I pray this ministry touches every single life in South Dakota and other states you minister in. Thank you.
Tonight I went out after supper to run an errand and I was just sick of listening to the local radio station I normally would have on. I hit the "seek" button on the radio. The first station it stopped on was you! I am from Pierre, SD and I did not know you were setting up a broadcast outlet here. I am so thankful you did! You are such a blessing to hear. I cannot thank you enough.
I lived in the Black Hills for 10 yrs and listened to you all the time. My husband passed away 2 1/2 yrs ago and I finally moved back to MN last summer and can only get you on my computer now but still listen every day. I was a partner with you before but in the move some things fell thru the cracks so now I am getting a handle on life again so want to support you again. Thank you for all the encouragement of God's love and faithfulness that you offer. Part of my heart will always be out there with you even though I am back in MN with my family.
Your radio station has lifted me up for many a mile cause I drive a truck in Wyoming and 5 western states. Every time I go to Rapid it makes the drive a whole lot better listening to KSLT. I love the music and what you folks are doing with Hill Alive (cant wait) Keep up the great work you all do there. And I will continue to send in my pledge every month.
Thank you and God Bless
KSLT I’ve been blessed by you ever since I moved to Rapid City – the same month you came on the air! 25 years of Christian radio – thank you Jesus! CEM
I asked some from your station to please pray for my family. My son still is fighting tumors, I lost my husband to pneumonia and I have lost everything I own. I shouldn't say lost, I should say sold to pay off bills. Your prayers were so much appreciated. God is so good. He has given me just what I need each day and then some. I have a little extra money right now and would like to bless you. Your station has blessed me so much. God uses you so well to touch those who are hurting! It truly helps us praise HIM in our storms!" SH
To all at KLMP, KSLT, and the Point – I want to thank you for your dedication and commitment to being par the ministry. It is an important aspect in spreading the “Good News” of Jesus Christ through our Black Hills community. Sometimes people can feel so alone and small in their effort to be a light in their workplace and in their community. Your presence and availability and offering of encouraging words helps me feel like I am a part of the army – God’s army. You have also been an important part of my walk in finding the personal relationship with Christ and in my faith growth. Keep up your good and noble and bold efforts in being a place that place can turn to. You are part of the steel fiber in what makes this country great and the Black Hills a great place to love. DL
Thank you and God Bless you all. You all at KSLT got me through the hardest year of my life. I forgot I wrote to you with my life’s problems and when I heard John Derrek read my letter over the station for sharathon it brought me to my knees with total and awesome praise for my Lord. To look back at where I was and where HE has brought me in just a year is nothing but a MIRACLE! May God Bless all of you as much as He has bless me. SK
Thank You so much, Jamie! That song came at a time when I needed it. As I said, I listen to you any time the radio is on, and your music is so uplifting. But this time it was without a doubt, “Spirit lead”. Thank you.
God has just brought me through the worst 2 years of my life. Petra has been my favorite band since I started listening to KSLT in 1988. When I heard Petra was coming to Hills Alive, I thought, it’s awesome that they’re back together…thank you, God! When I heard they were coming together just for Hills Alive, I thought, this is for me…thank you, God! When I heard they’re playing on my birthday, I know it’s His special birthday gift to me… THANK YOU GOD! Without going into details, I know God is using Petra as a Job moment (extra-special blessings after some big trials) for me. Thank you, thank you, KSLT, Petra and all involved for answering God’s leading in bringing me this very special birthday gift. JO
I listen to this radio station everyday. The Christian music is amazing and it can change you within just by listening to it. Its so positive and it speaks to you. Thank You for all that you do its important to have that spiritual reminder. . ..Thank You for recognizing our soldiers.
Your station is the only church our son and his wife listen to. Last Christmas they started listening to win the train box-car and become hooked by God’s grace! Thank you so much for the witnessing of God’s words being sung to them and all others! We have the Christmas music and really try to win a box car! It is addictive! Keep up the good work. God Bless! D&BU.

Jamie- I have chatted with you a couple times on the phone. I just wanted to tell you that I love KSLT an the music that you play. Your afternoon show, however, is my favorite to listen to. I have been going through one of the most challenging years of my life, spiritually and otherwise. If it were not for the love of Christ, my family, and your uplifting way of sharing your life with your listeners, I don't know how I would have ever made it through. I can't tell you how many times you have made me laugh and lifted my spirits with your words that are so true to life. Thank you so much for all you do to bring Christ to your listeners. You are such a blessing!!
Thanks so much for your passion for bringing great music to the masses.
We visited Rapid City and the Black Hills area about six years ago. We fell in love with area and with KSLT radio. My wife and I hope to move that direction after our youngest graduates high school. Tonight I am listening to KSLT via the web from my home in Missouri.
I have been listening to you for over 5 years now and each time I listen, I am given a time to praise my Lord. I can dance, sing, smile and express the joy of the Spirit. There are other times when I can have a good cry because a song touches my heart as the artist expresses my feelings, reminding me I am not alone in my struggles of life. God Blesses my life through all of you at KSLT. Thank you!
I love your little stories about your kids. My girls are 23 and 26, so your stories take me back to the day. Thank you and may God bless your day, Jamie.
Music Is Great keep it Coming!
