  • Today was a great day.  We spent time running through songs and doing a concert with a few musicians in that church.  We ended up with a bass player,  keyboard player,  and singer from Fuente Vida church with me on drums, with Rob from our team on guitar and Tito on vocals. Tito is a really good bass player, but he wanted Fuente Vida's bass player, named Issac to play instead. We were able to encourage Issac to play along with the patterns I was playing on my kick drum, which seems like a no brainer, but is not always the case for all young players.

    It was also really  cool for me to return t...

  • When someone tells you that they are going on a missions trip, the typical thought that crosses your mind is probably, “Oh, like going to help a poor remote village?” or “going to help build 4 walls or do a VBS?” And for the most part that’s what people do.

I am especially humbled to know that I have the utmost trust of the parents of these amazing children.

    Taught a basic audio class to a fine group of young people this afternoon at the New Life Masih Ghar Church. Explaining simple signal flow from microphone to speakers. They were very receptive and eager to learn. Feeling very privileged to share my knowledge with others around the world, all for the the glory of God and advancing His Kingdom!

    Very blessed to worship today with this culturally diverse congregation. After the service we were treated to their usual after service meal of traditional Indian cuisine.  Very lovely and friendly people who are not shy about striking up a conversation w...
