Anchorage, Alaska//Concert

We were in Alaska for fourteen days and gave ten concerts in that time. 
One was at this lovely church by the ocean, very fittingly called "Chapel by the Sea".
The breathtaking view of the ocean & mountains, from the side of the church.
Liz, Mom, & I took a few pictures during the concert.
"Heaven came down, and glory filled my soul! When at the cross the Savior made me whole!"
(I was quite in love with the church's gorgeous grand piano, even though for some reason I look really serious in the above photo. =) In reality I was having so much fun playing such a great instrument! I love my keyboard but it really can't compare to a good grand!)
"Soon and very soon, we are going to see the King...
...hallelujah, hallelujah, we're going to see the King!"
"Jesus tender Shepherd hear me, bless Thy little lamb tonight..."
"This is my Fathers World"
the church was packed and they were such a fun audience. There were lots and lots of young families and many babies. We LOVE that!
Mitchell sharing a very humerous story about Denver. 
If you haven't been to a concert of ours lately..well, let me tell you-
you need to come just to hear this story. 
Its a classic. =)

 "I will sing of the mercies of the LORD for ever: with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations. For I have said, mercy shall be built up for ever: Thy faithfulness shalt Thou establish in the very heavens."
Psalm 89:1&2
