This Past Weekend in MD, DE & NJ
Mon., Sep. 7. 2009 8:34am EDT
With three concerts along the Eastern Seaboard this past weekend (Bel Air MD, Georgetown DE, and Marlboro NJ), we just knew it was all going to be beaches and cream. We know a shore thing when we see it. We could have used a lighthouse at the end of Sunday's show, though, because Jimmy's fog machine wouldn't shut off and we almost couldn't find our way off stage. Don't ask us how that happened; we haven't the foggiest.
Here are email excerpts we received afterward from the concert coordinators in Maryland and Delaware:
It was my pleasure to have such great talent as you guys. I'm steadily hearing from fans how much they loved the show (in Georgetown DE). Hope to keep in touch with you and get you back to God's country next spring when we can have you guys bring the families and enjoy area.Here are some email comments fans who attended the shows:
Had a great time working with you last Friday night (in Bel Air MD). Hope the rest of the weekend went good for you guys. I have gotten nothing but good reports for people who went to the concert.
It was great seeing y'all again -- it had been too long, way too long! It was a really cool venue and the crowd was one of the most enthusiastic I've seen.Special thanks to:
Thank you all for a great concert on Friday in Bel Air, the time of testimony and call to commitment, and fellowship afterwards. May God continue to bless you and bless others through your lives and work of ministry.

Thanks for a great concert and another great time (in Marlboro NJ). What a way to celebrate the end of the Lord's Day. Music was awesome. It is great to see you all honour the Lord with all joining in. He is the Best! I know He was pleased.
Thanks so much for your ministry last night in Marlboro. I had some tears in my eyes when you shared about how the parents of those friends of yours came to know Christ. It reminded me of how God allowed me as his instrument to lead my mother to Christ.
For a very long time, she was into astrology and all other kinds of that nonsense. There were faithful people from my old home church that have prayed for her salvation for many years. When she was diagnosed with cancer, I saw her start to destroy all her tarot cards, astrology and witchcraft books. I told those people who were praying to continue because I believed God was working on her heart.
A few days after, my mother was asking about salvation and God's forgiveness. A few years ago, I preached on the subject of Heaven. I told the congregation that one thing that I am looking forward to is to introduce my children to their grandmother.
