Faith In The OC

Monday, April 18, 2005

Good morning......happy Monday! I thought I would share some news with all of you. Another step in faith that we are praying about. We have been given an opportunity to go to Ireland at the end of this summer. The idea would be that we would play in some of the pubs and coffee houses in Ireland and Scotland. I'll flesh it out a little bit:

Like I've been talking about for so long people need us to come to them not ask them to come to a church program or something of the like. We want to bring Jesus to them. Not in a forcefully way but in the same way that Jesus did. The idea is that we would send teams of people. They would include the musicians in the band, people to run sound and take care of equipment (All of the sound equip. will have to be rented when we get over there), and then people to just sit out with the crowd and "mingle" if you will. The thought is to be able to make connections with the people in Ireland and Scotland. Another facet of this idea is that this would not be a one time thing. There will be teams hopefully going over twice a year. With that in mind we would not just go this year but probably try and make this something we do at least once a year. It's a very exciting opportunity and we are praying that God will give us guidance. One thing I know is that if we don't start moving in that direction we won't know if it is God's direction for us or not so we are gearing up to do this. There are lots of areas of prayer needed so I am writing this in hopes that just like our last big step of faith that you would be willing to partner with us in prayer as we head into this. For now: If it's God's will we will be playing music in Ireland and Scotland late this summer. Pray with us for further guidance and confirmation. Also pray for the team of people putting this together. It is obviously no small thing and we all really need prayer in a big way. I'll keep you all in the loop as we go forward with the plans.

I thank you for all of your prayers through our move to Southern California and all of your continued prayers through our time down here. God has blessed us in so many countless ways. I could never have even dreamed of what He would do with us down here. So thank you!

I'll write more soon. I hope you all have an amazing week!
