Hello, friends. It's a sunny day, here in Vancouver, BC. I got here Wednesday night, around midnight (which was 2am to my contacts). I spent much of yesterday resting and working on learning some of the new songs the team and I will be doing this weekend. It was a peaceful and easy day (cue Eagles). Last night I led worship for a women's leadership training conference an hour or so from Vancouver. It was a warm and open atmosphere to lead in...and those sweet Canadian women sang their hearts out to Jesus. We sang simple stuff that most everyone knows...Blessed Be Your Name, Praise to the Lord the Almighty, Above All, In Christ Alone. I sang a couple of solos, including a new song that I wrote for my next record. I am excited to have some new stuff to sing. Speaking of which...and I didn't mean to row down this stream on this post...but it looks like my next record is going to be a little delayed...like, a lot delayed. But I am total peace about it, because I have people helping me make decisions that I totally trust and love. Not to mention my sweet hottie wife who talks to Jesus more than anyone I know, and is at peace with our working recording schedule.
Blah blah ramble blah blah.
We have a Living Proof Live event this weekend. It's our first of the year...and our first Living Proof since AUGUST. That is TOO LONG between events. Beth and I have had other events together since August, but this is our first LPL since then. And I am so ready to get back at it. My band had some drama getting here yesterday...one of them missed the first flight...we prayed her here, and she finally got here around midnight last night. When she renewed her passport for this trip, somehow her new picture got put on her old passport. And she didn't realize it until she was trying to check in. Fun times.
Anyway, we would appreciate your prayers as we ask the Lord to work some miracles in lives as we worship and study this weekend.
So this is my first trip to Canada. And so far our northern friends are showing out...beautiful weather, beautiful city, friendly people.
Next week, I am heading to Puerto Rico to do a video shoot for a song for the International Mission Board. Yessss. I need me some Caribbean Islands right now. Wait...is Puerto Rico considered a Caribbean Island? Anyway, it's sunny and beautiful and I can't wait. I went there once in 7th grade with my parents. I remember the water being amazing. And I remember playing the steel drums. And I remember leaving the dinner table early to go up to the room and watch Square Pegs. Don't judge me.
I am trying to upload a picture from my hotel window that my friend Rich took yesterday so you can see this amazing view. Photobucket is not cooperating. I will keep trying. Have a great day!
