This Past Weekend in PA & NH

Stroudsburg and Spofford. Obscure folk duo? Local legal firm? No, just the names of the two places we played this past weekend, Stroudsburg PA and Spofford NH. But apparently a lot of you knew that already, based on the great turnout we had for both shows.
Here are some email excerpts from our concert coordinators:
We appreciate your music and ministry. It was a pleasure working with you, and I know God was at work in the hearts of those who attended. It was a great night for us and we give the glory to Him.Here are some email excerpts we received afterward:

Pocono/Slate Belt Youth for Christ
All the volunteers love you guys. You won some people over last night ... hope to see you at another concert in New England.
Although I have been a fan for years, last night in Stroudsburg was the first time I saw you guys and I brought 20 ninth graders with eight adults, we made it part of our third-year confirmation retreat. Anyway you guys were great, and the kids loved it. I just wanted you to know that you guys got some youth excited for Christ last night. Thank you for your ministry.Special thanks to:
Pastor Matthew Voyer
Thank you for allowing us to be a part of the event last night in Stroudsburg. It was one of the most amazing events we have ever been able to be a part of ("'Not by power, nor by might, but by My Spirit' says the Lord," and His Spirit was present and amazingly active last night! I am overwhelmed). Your love for Jesus was evident, even in your interaction with us. Sometimes that is not evident in places where we minister. Anyway, you were such a blessing, and I pray you will continue until He comes again.

It was great seeing you guys once again! The concert was excellent and I am psyched about the CD's which I'll be playing tommorrow! I've been anticipating them and the concert all week!
I was at the concert last night and you may have seen me to your right in the second row as I was out of my seat most of the night. I was bound and determined to get my money's worth, and I sure got it! You are so funny and you and your band's faith shines through. I plan on coming to more of your concerts when you are in the area. I have never written to any other band band before so this is a real compliment.
It was a thrill to see you last night! Loved all the new tunes -- as usual it was great! You have a way of getting the Bible message out in all sorts of ways.
