relationships, good food, good music (hopefully ;), and just to see what God is doing through his people over seas.
Back to Ontario Canada:
I've been having so much fun at the different venues that I've been invited to play.
I did a youth conference at the University of Waterloo and ran into some old Guelph acquaintances. I couldn't remember their names, but we all agreed that our faces looked familiar. We seemed to talk about our lack of name remembering skills for quite some time. Too funny!
Sound-check @Faith Church (St. Thomas, ON)
Another highlight of May was a concert I did at Faith Church in St. Thomas. What a beautiful experience. I want to say a special thank you to the crew there who was so hospitable. Marty-- you especially. Such a servant heart. The whole night ran so smoothly. I loved the various artists that showed up: Joel Larmer, Darin Martin, Laura Osburn. So much fun to listen to y'all! I have to also thank 105.9 Inspire FM. The whole crew there (Scott, Dave, Richard) was so key in promoting this event. (I feel like this blog entry is like a CD insert of thank yous). Peter, Ryan, Jake, Andre, Erin--- so blessed to be able to work with you. Oh-- I must also mention, the last song of the night, I was accompanied by a beautiful 13 year old girl Hannah who sang a long with me. What a talented little lady. God has great things in store for you young lady!
Last but not least, it was such a thrill to return this month to Signet Christian school. The kids are so entertaining, funny, lovable, and talented. I taught them the entire song to "Sleeping in the Sun" in like 5 minutes. Mind you, they had the words in front of them, but even to catch all of the melody was impressive ;) One of the students was able to record part of our little session. Watch below:
What is next on the immediate agenda? Well--- as some of you already know, I've recently signed with Nashville label Mission House, and I'll be debuting "Bigger Houses" in the US. I've been humbled to see Canadian Christian radio stations really soak up that song, so hopefully it can be just as warmly received by our sister country ;) I would like to be able to do some touring in the US as well, but there are a few hoops I'll have to jump over first. The closest I may get to any State at the moment may be some gigs out in Windsor, ON. I'm currently looking at stetting up some venues there so if you'd like to jump on board, I'm looking at sometime towards the end of July or August. So, there you have it. I could have written a lot more, but it is getting late and well, sometimes you just gotta make it short(er) & sweet.
Thank you to those who are keeping me in your prayers. I couldn't do this without your love, and prayer support. Praise Jesus for you!
