Sean Edenburn - 7/7/51 – 7/13/17

Sean Edenburn
Sean Edenburn

WIHS is sad to announce that one of our veteran broadcasters has passed away.

Sean Edenburn had a deep love for radio and had been an announcer at several radio stations around Connecticut prior to coming to WIHS in 1997. He loved being a part of the WIHS family and was the mainstay Sunday afternoon announcer at WIHS for two decades. He will be remembered for his friendly and warm delivery.

In addition to his announcing duties, Sean often contributed news stories throughout the week.

Sean Edenburn celebrated his 66th birthday on Friday, July 7th, and was fast approaching his 20th anniversary with WIHS on July 27th.

Sean went home to Glory on Thursday, July 13th.

Please remember his wife Kathy in your prayers, along with the Edenburn's children and grandchildren.

In developing nations like Ghana or Honduras, the cost of a wheelchair is equal to a year's salary. The wheelchairs collected through WIHS will be refurbished in Connecticut before being shipped to Romania.

2017 Daily Bible Reading Guide

God's Faithful Word of Mercy and Forgiveness is the topic during July 2017 in the Daily Bible Reading Guide from The Connecticut Bible Society. We are reading passages from the Old Testament which show the extent to which God will go to extend his mercy and forgiveness to us. Those passages provide examples for us to follow when others around us are in need to that type of loving care.

The guide is available in English and Spanish. The Connecticut Bible Society and WIHS have teamed up together to make the guide available to you at no cost!

If you would like a copy for yourself, or several copies for your church or Bible study group, please contact WIHS radio any of these ways:
