Last week we were all spread out! Dad, Matthias, and Stephen were working at a job in Kansas. Ruth, Elizabeth, Susanna, and I were visiting Alan and Rachel. And Mom, Alaythia, Nathanael, and Charissa held down the home fort.
Now this week we all were home praying, practicing and preparing music.....because today we head out on a 10 day trip to Minnesota and Iowa!
We will be singing at the Lake Itasca Music Festival as well as presenting The KIDS' Musical Storybook Hour which we have done the last several years and SO enjoy! Daddy will be speaking on family at a workshop and Matthias and Stephen will help lead the dobro and mandolin workshops. The REALLY happy news is... Alan & Rachel and Andrew & Kori are driving up for the weekend to help with Lake Itasca!!! ;)
Our schedule for this trip is...
2 Seward County Fair Seward, Ne 6 PM
3 - 5 Lake Itasca Music Festival Lake Itasca, MN
5 Assembly Family Church Warroad, MN 7 PM
6 St Peter Lutheran Church Randall, MN 7 PM
7 Community Country Church Holdingford, MN 7 PM
11 St Paul's Lutheran Church Postville, Iowa 5:30 PM
12 St Paul's Lutheran Church Postville, Iowa 9 AM
We would really appreciate prayers for the whole time we are gone!
- That God would use the music to touch lives, and draw people to Himself.
- That the programs would go well. (this is our first trip without Rachel)
- That we would have safe travels .
- And mostly that God would be glorified!!!
I will praise You, O Lord, among the peoples,
And I will sing praises to You among the nations.
