… So far, we have had much success on the road. We have had four evangelistic concerts and 30 people have made decisions to know Christ personally! The comments on the comment cards have been so encouraging, not only do people love the music, but we’ve had youth writing things like, “your testimony made me cry. After hearing it I really had to examine my life and I ended up rededicating myself to the Lord”. How awesome is our God?!
On the lighter side, we have truly found out what it means to be ON TOUR. We had two days, back-to-back, on which we had two concerts scheduled. The first day went extremely well although everyone was concerned about how it would work out, especially with regards to our energy. The second day (yesterday) one of our concerts fell through for a couple of reasons; the threat of rain and a competing event in the park our host was not aware of. We got all of our instruments and equipment set-up and we were actually starting sound check and then we had to tear it all down and pack it up again, but God is definitely the Grand Architect and knows what He’s doing, because at the second concert, which was an outdoor concert at a church right at the heart of a neighborhood desperately in need of the good news, (we were setting up at the church and I could smell the marijuana smoke from the house right next door to the church), we had five youth come to know Christ! We are truly amazed everyday at how God works.
A way that you all can be praying for us is to pray that we don’t grow weary in well-doing. So far, we have had such a hectic schedule that we haven’t gotten much sleep and when we do, it’s not necessarily the most restful sleep, I’m sure ALL of you can relate to that! LOL. So please pray that God would just renew our strength and mount us up on wings as eagles so that we can soar above the enemy’s tricks and still minister and give God the glory…Thus far, we’ve been in Milwaukee, WI and the metro Detroit, MI area. We finish our run in Detroit today and head out to parts of OH (Akron, Cleveland, and Springfield) on Friday. Following our Ohio run, we’ll be in Pittsburgh, PA, Wheatfield, IN, Chicago, IL and then closing out the tour in Indy. We love you all and pray God’s success for your tours and ministry as they continue. Love and peace, Level 3:16
