This Past Weekend in FL & WI
Wed., Mar. 24. 2010 9:00am EDT
We didn't get much sleep this past weekend, but we did get plenty of frequent-flyer miles, playing concerts in Lakeland FL and Edgerton WI.
Here are some encouraging email excerpts we received afterward from our concert coordinators:
This was three years in a row here in Lakeland and I have to tell you, this was as exciting if not more so than the first time you were here! The concert was absolutely phenomenal! You guys totally rocked the house! Here are some email comments we received afterward from fans:
That said, let me say this: as much as I enjoy watching all of you on stage, my favorite part of your visits here to Lakeland have been the personal time we've had to share together before the concert. I want you to know how much I cherish the relationship that has developed between all of us here and the band.
I mean it when I introduce you as part of our family here. I appreciate your hearts for ministry and the talents God has gifted you with, thanks again! One more time, you guys rocked the house!
Fred Sosa, Youth Pastor
Frontline of Faith Ministry
Although the past 36 hours are now a blur, I am just in awe of you guys. The rockin' was great, but the best was visiting. Nothing can replace that. You guys are very gifted and blessed!
Thank you for being such wonderful examples of the grace of Christ. We appreciate the spirit of every band member. Pastor Fred and Rick Fluman worked very hard to pull this together and I think it was a success! Pastor Bill and I admire not only your talent, but even more your heart.
Lynne A. Breidenbach, Para-Pastor
Faith Life Fellowship
We enjoyed having you guys! We appreciated the testimony from Tom, and the concert was excellent. Thanks for working it out to be in Wisconsin coming from Florida.
James Salimes, Youth Pastor
Great job in Lakeland tonight. Thanks for coming so for just to share the Word. God bless you, brothers.Special thanks to:
Hey Guys, thank you very much for playing in Lakeland. It was awesome. I just posted some of the pictures I took during the concert on my Facebook page.
Our family enjoyed seeing you in Lakeland, FL. I'm so thankful my sons are hearing these songs with your lyrics (versus how I learned them back when)! God Bless!
The show was great. We all had a great time, including the two teens that really didn't want to go.
We enjoyed the concert immensely. Like always it was great.
