So, our MO/MI “tour” was a blast. Thanks to Christen Cole, Carson Murphy, and Jon Rogers!!! We couldn’t have asked for better musicians or better company. We headed out on Friday afternoon and ended up in Cape Girardeau, MO in time to sound check. And were welcomed again (like last year) into the lovely home of “Grammy” who provided us with more delectable delights than we could handle. Thank you Grammy! Christen and I had some awesome prayer time on the ride to MO, and we were shocked to find out that the theme of the youth rally at Rock of Cape was “Breaking Free.” And every person who spoke touched on something that we had prayed about. Christen’s quote of the weekend was “Ha! I guess we are all listening to the same God.” 🙂 We hated to leave Christen in MO to lead worship on her own on Sunday, but we had to hit the road to get to MI.

We spent the night in Illinois and then drove in to Grand Haven. The weather was warm…but not as hot as it had been. And though storms were rolling all around us, they passed right over with barely a drop of rain.   The people at Worship on the Waterfront were EXCELLENT! They were so kind and made sure we were totally taken care of. A big THANK YOU goes out to all the crew who make this event happen. We hope and pray it is keep going to years to come…65 and counting huh?  It was a great venue and a great time of worship.  We were also excited to get to see some of our Michigan family – Pete, Kim, Kaity, Uncle John, and a bunch of Jon’s peeps.  Loved meeting all of you!

Little Tree Worship opened up for us.  Sloan the lead singer is from South Africa..Joburg to be exact…so we had fun talking about our time in Cape Town.  Keep an eye out for them.

I’m still praying for you lovely folks that asked for prayer after the show.  May the Lord continue to show himself to you in tangible ways!  Feel free to email me with updates. 🙂

After we packed up and stayed to watch the “Musical Fountain”  (which is a must if you are in Grand Haven at 10pm in the summer)…we went for a stroll on the beach of Lake Michigan.  It was so beautiful to have our feet in the sand watching the moon reflect off the water.  I couldn’t have asked for a better ending to the day.

For now, we are buckling down getting ready for school to start and doing mostly worship stuff around home.  But hopefully we will be out and about again soon!  Take care!
