Our family left for our three month tour on the 3rd of January.
Leaving was, in itself, quite a chore.
The neighbors probably thought we were crazy.
If you would have been a neighbor, you would've seen the following drama unfold...
drive down the road 100 yds
someone yells from some corner of the bus..
"I forgot ________!!! turn around!!"
back up 100 yds
someone runs into the house to get forgotten item/s
start bus again and drive down the road 100 yds
repeat entire procedure several times
finally make it two miles down the road
once again comes the call, "Ummm, I hate to mention it, but...I forgot______!!"
s-l-o-w-l-y turn bus around and head back the two miles of gravel to retrieve forgotten item.
the bus is quiet as tension builds. =)
finally....we make it 30 minutes down the road. 
and we are past the point of no return.
we will now rely on trusty Walmart to take care of forgotten items...
or friends at home to ship things that cannot be replaced by Walmart.=)
Please visit our  schedule to see if we are going to be in your area! 
We would love to see you at a concert!
(We will be in Oklahoma this week until Friday so if you are from OK and want to attend a concert, look at our schedule for the next several nights' concert locations)


  1. Praying as you continue your tour! =) Our family has definitely been so blessed by your ministry and it was so nice to see you all again! Blessings!

  2. Just wanting to let each of you know how VERY much we enjoyed and were blessed by your concert last night at First Baptist Las Colinas. Your lives are testimonies that it IS possible to live wholeheartedly for the Lord, and to raise a family "intent on one purpose." Thank you for the example you set for our church, and for me and my family. Thank you for your encouragement to become addicted to the things of the Lord.

    I did mention to Chelsey that our family is in the middle of producing a film to help children learn to memorize Scripture....when we had a couple set-backs recently, I was struggling with discouragement, but hearing the encouragement you all gave regarding Scripture memory, then watching Joshua quote Romans 8 - it was the encouragement I needed. We are thankful for the blessing you all were to us last night. May the Lord bless your ministry in every way!

    Smile! :)
    Kate for the Bridges family
    In His presence is FULLNESS Of joy....
