This past week, I started 3 straight weekends of Sunday Morning Services in the Lehighton, PA area. (Feel free to check out the events page for where I will be in the upcoming weeks.)
In every concert, my goal is to touch someone in a meaningful way through my music and testimony. This past week was no exception. I was at St. Peter's E.C. Church in Weissport, PA. This is a small church, and the pastor was on vacation.
After the service was over, I was in the back of the church to meet and talk to people as they left. The first woman to come out and grabbed my hand with tears in her eyes. She proceeded to tell me about her husband (who had recently gone home to be with the Lord), and how he used to travel around and sing. She went on to tell me that many of the Hymns that I sang that morning, were some of their favorite hymns, and how it was such a blessing to hear those songs and be reminded of the days when they would travel around and sing.
As it turns out, this woman currently lives in Florida; however, this was her home church before they move down south. Since she was in the area, she decided to stop in this particular morning for a visit. She had no idea the pastor would be away, or that there was anything special going on that day.
Regardless of how large or small the audience, you never know who the Lord has put in your path on any particular day. While I know she told me how much of a blessing I was to her, I hope she knows how much of a blessing she was to me.
Like I said at the beginning of this post, My goal is to touch someone in a meaningful way with my music. As long as the Lord sees fit for me to touch people's lives, I will continue to reach out through music and whatever else the Lord has in store for me.
Please continue to pray that the Lord will continue to bless this ministry as we reach into the various churches and communities that we are called to touch.
