Studio Time

Many thanks to those of you who have been keeping us in prayer this week. We've officially started the first phase of our new project -- the actual 'recording'! Between yesterday and today we have 13 tracks laid down, and we're hoping for 2 or 3 more tomorrow to complete the album.

While there are so many steps left in the process (mixing, mastering, photos, design/layout, copyright, ect...) we are encouraged to see the Lord's hand as we start down this road again. Thank you, thank you for your prayers! Our hope is to have the project completed by mid-December. Stay tuned.....

"For I know that the Lord is great,
And our Lord is above all gods."
Psalm 135:5

Thank you for giving and update! Great photo snaps, Bethany! Continued prayers for the remainder of the CD. We'll stay tuned.....!!:)

O God, You are more awesome than Your holy places. The God of Israel is He who gives strength and power to His people.

Blessed be God! Ps.68:35

Glad you are making another CD. We enjoy the ones we have purchased at Old Threshers. Glad "Fret Not" is on this one.

Your CD's bring back wonderful memories of fall, and steam engines and Rumeley Oil Pulls (OK, you probably didn't pay that much attention to them - but they sound neat when the run) and of watching your family in the tent and barn.

I see you will be in Burlington in December. Last year, we skipped out of our church early to come hear you. Are you just doing the evening programs this year?

If you don't mind my asking, does one person write your journal or do you share the writing? I have a pretty good idea who takes most of the pictures.

Wishing you the best

One of your Old Threshers Fans
