We're in Branson! The past several days have been a fast-paced mixture of rehearsals and attention to details as we count down only a couple more days until our Christmas show officially begins. We've really been in awe of how the Lord has gone before us here -- and almost daily we've experienced specific answers to prayer. We're so grateful!
Again this year, our show contains over 300 costume items, so the hauling and setting up of our dressing rooms took a bit of coordination and organization. We're often reminded that 'many hands make light work'...and are glad for all the teamwork we can experience in pulling together toward a common goal. Everyone has their strengths and we rely on each person playing their unique role.
And here are a few photos from the past couple days:

The large stack of instruments... 20 total for our Christmas show!
Practice, practice, practice!
In addition to fine-tuning all the musical aspects of the show, we also rehearse choreography, lighting, sound, and dialog.

Endurance. Patience. Cooperation. Stamina.
All essential traits we have plenty of opportunity to practice!

Meanwhile, our dressing rooms often turn into a makeshift kitchen as we prepare meals and eat on the 'go'.
And time to re-fuel!
Again, we're so grateful for your prayers as you walk this exciting journey with us! We're looking forward to sharing more in the coming week as we are officially up and running on Wednesday. We sincerely pray that this Christmas will be one of increased opportunity to share both the message and HOPE of the season -- found in Jesus Christ.
