Last month’s update, I told you a story from the road. That is something I could do every update I do. I have sooooo many stories that I could write a book. Some stories would be funny, some sad, some crazy and some that should never be told. But these updates are not just for the stories, but for how things are going in this ministry.
There are some things that always seem to go well, and then some things that I think we will always struggle with. Concerts are going well, we have had a lot of great shows lately and have had great turn outs at most of them. Now, once in a while, we will have a show that doesn’t go great, but that is to be expected every now and then. Our schedule continues to fill up more and more each week. 2015 is 99% done, 2016 is half done and we have several concerts booked for 2017 and 2018 already.
Even with all that happening and going well, it seems as if the financial side of things is always our challenge. Health insurance is greatly increasing, other insurances, travel costs, utilities and so much more seems to always be on the rise while the income stays the same. God has always taken good care of us and I know He always will.
People will often ask me why I don’t get another job and quit this ministry since we struggle financially all the time. The reason I don’t……….The reason we don’t is because of the over 1,400 people that received Christ in their lives last year at our concerts and the 510 so far this year that have done the same. The amount of people is not important, but it is how God uses us and a brass instrument to do His work.
I haven’t done this by myself. I have an incredible wife and kids that are just as much of a part of this ministry as me, I have a great board of directors, and I have you all. Thank you to all of you that have supported our ministry through the years through finances and prayers. It is awesome to see God use all of you to further this ministry.
If you would like to become part of our ministry support team through prayer or financial help, please contact us so we can get to know you.
Thanks for your time.
