Chip night is my favorite night. I always try to see if we can line up chip night the same night we are at a group. I love too see people making that first decision. I love to see people coming forward within 30, 60, 90 days. I also love to see the 3 years, 10 years and 27 year people too. It brings joy to my heart! But, it also reminds me of where I was and where I am today. It keeps me focused on why Beth and I do what we do. It keeps things in perspective. It's also a time where God steps in and shows us all that he is still in control.
We just got off our Florida/Georgia tour and as I'm reflecting on this tour I see in so many ways how God stepped in and took control. From Beth's plane being canceled and the airline saying there was no way she would make the concert, to a mysterious plane showing up on the screen saying they could now get her there just in time. To sound issues being fixed at the last minute to running out of merchandise.
Reflecting on the many stories of first timers. How they shared with us how they could relate to our stories, our songs and some were glad that someone invited them for the first time. Reflecting also in the song we wrote that God inspired, to just being in awe that we get to do this.
We met leaders that are now lifetime friends! We're grateful for those new friends, for the support and for the prayers. Thank you all for believing, taking a risk in having us and making us feel like we are a part of your family. It makes what we do an incredible joy!
Blessings from the Road!
