What a first weekend of tour! We have a great team out on the road. I’ll list them so you can add them to your prayer list. The Building 429 guys: Jason, Jesse, Aaron, and Michael. The Kimber Rising girls: Brianne, Danielle, and Amanda. The crew: Brian, Ryan, John, Johnny, Josh, and Jason. Representing World Vision is Jason Roy’s wife Courtney so the kids get to come too. And last but not least our bus drivers: Brent and Sidney. Or maybe it’s Cindy. I couldn’t get a straight answer from the Building guys. So that’s our team. We will covet your prayers over the next two months. I think that kind of coveting is okay.
We started the weekend with an outdoor show in St. Louis, well, actually in St. Charles. We were afraid of rain, but God sent the storms another direction and we had a beautiful day. We actually had amazing weather all weekend. Even the night it rained it was gorgeous all day. So we got off to a great start in St. Charles and Neosho, MO (aka St. Louis and Joplin). Then Saturday we were in Chicago, well, actually Elmhurst. I don’t know if you’ve noticed but we never actually play in a big city. We play in smaller places near big places. But what a night! The people in = Chicago were amazing. Thank you all so much for coming out. It was a wonderful night. Then we continued to another great town in Mequon, WI. I have to say, I don’t think I’ve ever had tour catering like that place. The food was amazing. And anyone who knows me knows that is important to me. They were incredible and very kind. And we finished tonight in North Mankato, MN. It was a Monday night so some people had to head home a little early. At least the Vikings weren’t playing Monday Night Football. But we had a wonderful time with the people here..
So thanks to all of you who came out and made the first weekend of tour so special. The Building guys and the Kimber girls are going to make this a wonderful tour. It is already a family. I am definitely looking forward to what God is going to do along the way. Hope to see you when we get near you. This coming weekend is Cleveland, GA, Columbus, GA, Myrtle Beach, SC, and Spindale, NC.
See you on the road.
