2018 DAY FIVE

Posted by Cindy Wallace on

Yesterday when our kids sang for the hotel staff as we left for the day, the women who cooks and services the breakfast bar came to Bro. James and told him how much she needed that song. She shared how she had just found out her husband had cancer. So, this morning "A Blessing" was sung over...

2018 DAY FOUR

Posted by Cindy Wallace on

We got to start this day a little later than yesterday since we didn't have far to drive to our presentations at Premier High School, a charter high school for at risk students that provides an innovative, character-based, personalized learning environment. So, after blessing the hotel staff, we...

2018 DAY THREE

Posted by Cindy Wallace on

Morning came early in Carlsbad. But even so, we embraced the opportunity to sing a blessing over the clerk in the hotel.  After daily devotions on the bus, we spent the rest of the time on the way to Post, TX in our rotations getting better acquainted with each other. So the morning went...

2018 DAY ONE

Posted by Cindy Wallace on

Another year, another trip.  With all the equipment, all the luggage and all of the students, we left the church about 7:40 and headed west.  A successful launch on another mission. Since our time in rehearsal is limited we often don't get to know each other unless we make a...

Day 10: Power and Majesty

Posted by Cindy Wallace on

We left the hotel early again this morning to make our way to Niagara Falls. As I told you in the last post, we saw the falls up close and personal.     The majesty and power of the water falling to the rocks below is a testimony to our Creator. In His creation we see the...

Day 9: Amazing!

Posted by Cindy Wallace on

Imagine a church where people line up outside for an hour waiting to get in to get a seat. A place where every seat is filled and every voice is raised to declare, "How Great Is Our God." A place where people who have experienced the rescuing hand of the Lord stand with arms raised when the...

Day 8: Divide and Conquer

Today everyone met in the hotel lobby to divide into groups where the kids could see and do the things they wanted to see and do.  These are the places they went including every place in between. Central Park Chinatown Little Italy Soho Coney Island Yankee...

Day 7: A Day to Remember

Posted by Cindy Wallace on

Today was our day to visit the 9/11 National Memorial. For those of us old enough to remember that day, it was like being sucked through a time warp as we relieved what we saw, thought and felt in what turned out to be a day like none other we had ever experienced. The oldest college student in...
