It’s a little odd to have played two shows and be halfway through a tour. But that’s where we are. We are out this week with Pocket Full of Rocks and Meredith Andrews. It has really been a special week already. Just three worship leaders leading the church. We started with a wonderful night in New Orleans. Even with the Super Bowl on the way, they showed up to worship and worship they did. They also reminded me that we need to be seriously praying because their mayoral election is Saturday, right before the Super Bowl. It will be easy for the election to be dwarfed by the football insanity. But they really need strong leadership to continue the rebuilding of their city. They are nowhere near recovered from Katrina, and yet it has long faded into the backlogs of the news. They will need a good mayor from these elections to lead their community, so let’s spend some time praying for them this weekend. Oh and the food was amazing.
We also went to Pace FL and met some great folks there. We had a great time with the folks from a new station WOW 90.9. It was an honor and a pleasure to worship with everyone.
And now we’re in Arkansas. We’ll be in Bentonville tonight, so everyone from Fayetteville, Springdale, Rogers, and the surround Bentonville metropolitan area, come out and worship with us. And then tommorrow in Fort Smith, AR. See you there.

Could’t comment on the last blog so I’ll do this one. Just a thought that crosses my mind. I wonder how many of your fans read your blog and go out and buy all the music you list, and how many have boughten bassett hounds? Hope AZ was good, my partents live in Green Valley, love it there.
may God continue to bless you FSHS
My wife and I were at 1st Baptist in Bentonville Friday night. Best $10.00 I ever spent. Bought Grace Like Rain CD afterward. That entire night did for me what you and Meredith & Pocket Full of Rocks group wanted it to do. I did not leave there the same as I walked in. We had gone through a rough week with layoffs at work. I was fortunate and still am working but I feel for those that are now gone. I have lost more than one job in my life.
I am 55 years old and that night took me back to many years watching and listening to Keith Green and 2nd Chapter of Acts. That night had the same spirit so it must have been the Holy Spirit. Please keep it up. Hang in there with the procedure that you shared about. I’ll pray foryou and for your young marriage.
Please come back to our area again soon.
Todd, thank you for leading worship last night in Fort Smith! To have a night beginning with Meredith Andrews and her firey heart for God, and then for Pocket Full Of Rocks continue to user in the Holy Spirit (especially the last part of their set) and then to have you come in and have the Lord’s presence pour so powerfully through you was a huge gift from God! I know God brought me healing last night. As words of truth were spoken and sung by you all last night, words of the enemy that I have been battling with (some were spoken over me, some were from thoughts I’ve had after being mocked, and others were from doubt in my heart) were, in a way, falling off me. It refreshed my soul to declare that God is greater than all negative things that are said over me or that happen to me! God has victory over ALL my trials! Jesus has won the fight, just like David won the fight for Israel! I just need to rush forward in confidence of the victory! I think that for me it is too easy to forget the victory when it is not what I can see in front of me in the natural, but I need to remember that in ALL circumstances I CAN have confidence that I DO have the victory through Jesus!!! I wanted to also mention your story telling is SUCH a GIFT! I would love to see you act in a play! Another thing I wanted to mention is that by admitting that you are not perfect, you give a great example of how to be honest before God, and how have a relationship with God that is raw and transparent, instead of having a relationship with God that appears flawless, but that is week and simply an act. There is much more I could write, but it could get to be the length of a novel, so I will just end letting you know that I appreciate you so much! I will be praying for you, Jenny, the children and your music and ministry!
Todd, my wife and I were so blessed by your concert. We have been big fans of yours for about 6 years now. When we heard you were going to be in our area we had to find a way to get to the concert. Your humbleness was overwhelming. I appreciate the time to visit with you and say hello. We are praying for you and your wife during these next months. We will pray for strength and a healthy recovery and peace. Your title of your new album is so true . . . we NEED Him everyday.
Thanks for being such a huge blessing to us.
Todd – I’ve been looking for a way to communicate this to you and it seems that God has created a providence. I grew up in Bentonville but now live about 40 miles south of Sacramento, CA. I missed your concert in Sacramento (11/6/09) because I was back in Bentonville at my Mom’s bedside as she went to be with the Lord. Preparing for her memorial service was difficult as I sifted through the pictures that I would use in an animated photo memorial. The one part that you made easy was the choice of music to accompany the slide show. I chose Martyr’s Song from your Better Questions CD. The music was the perfect compliment to the memories that the pictures evoked and the words of the song resonated with the comforting reminder that God truly has been waiting for her and that she was in fact “finally home”. We worshiped, celebrated her life, and mourned her passing just down the street from where you just performed. Your song ministered to people in ways that I had not anticipated. It was a bit unusual to hear music like your’s in the conservative walls of the Methodist Church, but it was the right song for the occasion and it truly was a blessing. Hopefully I’ll get the opportunity to thank you in person. I see you’re not on the line up yet for Spirit West Coast but maybe next year. I thank you, Ted Dekker, and the Holy Spirit for collaborating on that song and I look forward to the day when I, along with all my brothers and sisters in the Lord, will finally be home as well.
So want to thank you for your trip to Arkansas. My husband, my son and I attended the concert in Bentonville–what a blessing! My only disappointment was that I didn’t get to hear more of YOUR songs. I’ve loved your music for years–it ALWAYS challenges me to really think about what I’m doing and why I’m doing it. You also touched my 11-year-old. He was able to worship and has agreed to pay part of his allowance for a gift to World Vision. Will be praying for you in the next few months, but I know God will continue to guide you in your ministry because you are so willing to just be transparent before Him and before others. That must not be easy for you, and those who worship with you appreciate your authenticity. Thanks for being Real.
