Merry Christmas Everyone,
The Christmas season is in full swing and I am having a lot of fun. So far our Christmas shows have gone well and we are not even half way done with the tours yet. I will say one thing ……to all my Georgia and Florida friends, I had so much fun playing for you guys and I am looking forward to coming back, but I really struggled getting in the Christmas mood and doing Christmas shows for you last week when it was over 80 degrees outside. Now I’m back north for the rest of the year where the temperature is under 40 and that’s awesome.
I am looking forward to seeing God do some really great things the rest of this month and feel so blessed to able to do all of this for Him. I ran into a person the other day in Florida that said he was not doing anything about Christmas this year because the end of the world is coming on December 21st. I talked with him for a short time, and tried to share with him, but sadly, he is very focused on the wrong things in life. I gave him my number and told him to call me on the 22nd, but he did let me pray for him. I will tell you all something that I am thankful for……I am thankful that my God is so much bigger and better then a group of people that think they have figured out the end of the world. I really felt bad for this guy and was happy to have prayed with him and hope he does call me later.
There is always a lot of focus on ministries doing work in foreign countries to help spread the Gospel, but we have sooooo much work to do here too. God has blessed us tremendously this year and we have seen over 780 people accept Christ as their Savior. That is really cool, but I still am restless to know that there are people right next to me all the time that still need to put their lives in God’s hands. There is no better place to be, and no greater thing that you and I can help somebody get – it is a gift that doesn’t need wrapped with a pretty bow or placed under the Christmas tree, but it is the greatest gift anyone will ever receive. Share the Gospel of Jesus with them. Help spread God’s greatest gift this season, and see how so much better Christmas can be when you share the real story of Christmas with someone.

Thank you to all of you that check in on us and pray for us. God has taken us through a very hard year with many challenges but also many blessings. I am looking forward to next year’s ups and downs and seeing Him use us to lead more people to His Son Jesus Christ.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!
