This Past Weekend in IN & PA
Mon., Mar. 13. 2006 4:28pm EST

It's rather ironic that last week we described the then-upcoming concerts in Anderson IN, Clayton IN, and Cochranton PA as the Indianapolis 505 ... because in the final lap, we wound up having (and needing) quite a pit crew!

The weekend went smoothly until shortly after Sunday's show, when our bass player and main driver, Keith Haynie, went to move the van from the parking lot in order to begin packing up the trailer, and couldn't get it started. Thanks to all of you fans and friends who stayed and helped us try to get it running again (no, it wasn't the battery) and those who pitched in to get us home. Thankfully, Cochranton is less than two hours from our home, and the weather was almost as nice as the people.

For the record, before AAA finally arrived, after almost everybody had left, Keith and his brother David (who is a trucker) were able to get the van running and down to a mechanic. It appears the problem this time was the fuel pump. We'll see; we haven't gotten the final diagnosis yet.

Here's an excerpt from an awesome email we got from the Rachelle Kibler, who coordinated the concert in Cochranton:

THANKYOU THANKYOU THANKYOU! You were awesome. I'm so glad you came ... Thanks to you guys we will pay off the rest of the trip and the band will make it to the Tulip Festival ... You guys gave me a memory that will live with me forever--- of course no one will ever let me forget about being on stage looking like a loon so thanks for that too :) Well I have had only about three hours of sleep, and I need to get back to the church and clean up before work, so thankyou from the very bottom of my heart, and God bless you all!


And here's another email from Jennifer Perry, who attended the concert in Anderson IN with her family:

I just wanted to e-mail ... and let you know that we LOVED the concert. My 3 1/2 year old keeps asking when we are going to come see you again. I have six of you CD's in my truck that are in the player and we listen to them anytime that we are in the truck. She now hears them and asks if you played that one at the concert. Today she kept asking what Karl was doing at the concert and what was wrong with his head. I then saw her in the mirror and she was shaking her head to make her hair go like he does. It was so funny.

Thank you for doing what you do. Thank you for being an ambassador for Christ. Your message at the concert was wonderful ... I also wanted to let you know that the song, "Enter Samson" is one that is really neat. I have read and heard the story in the Bible, but you put a different perspective on it that makes it so awesome. It makes you look at that story in a different way.

God be with you guys. Keep up the awesome work. I will be praying for you and your families. I imagine that all of the traveling has got to be hard on you wives and kids. I have a traveling husband and I understand. I will be praying for you all.


Special thanks to:

our concert coordinators: Tony Bilbrey (Anderson), Keith Parker (Clayton), and Rachelle Kibler (Cochranton).

Thanks also to:

our merchandise table coordinators: Aaron, Keith, Rachel, Megan, and Brittany (Anderson); Amanda B., Lisa, Ashley, Adam, Catelyn, and Amanda V. (Clayton); and Heidi, Eve, Tim, Marisa, Casey, Steven, Jordan, Collin, and Zac (Cochranton).

our roadies: Greg, Rich, Larry, and Beth (Cochranton).

We'll be back in both states soon (Johnsonburg PA on March 17, and Indianapolis on April 21), so we hope to see you there!
