We at Breathe Life Radio can not express in words the sorrow felt when these things hit the news.  The hip-hop community & those who love hip-hop… THIS is our missions field… THESE are the people that we are trying to reach with the Truth of Jesus Christ & salvation.

It sooths to think & hope that M-Bone knew Christ prior to leaving this earth… it is a pain unspeakable to think that when given the chance to know Christ that he turned away & is now gone.  God’s desire is that ALL men would come to know the Truth… ALL will not… OUR actions here at BLR are toward making sure we are doing everything we can to be used by God so that ALL have a chance to say yes to the Father.  They can’t accept if they don’t hear… they won’t hear if we don’t speak.
