January 2017 || On Tour

First concert of the year was January 13th in Indiana! The pastor + his wife took us out for mexican before the concert.
On the bus, its tough sometimes to find a quiet corner. This particular morning, the instruments had already been unloaded from their spot next to the laundry pile in one of the bays, so I just perched myself, Bible, + coffee in there and had some quiet time, whilst the rest of the family was buzzing about above. (in the bus) 
Hey, whatever works! =)
Building those muscles during tear down time. =)
This tour has had quite a few adjustments, as we are working on switching around various responsibilities to make things flow smoothly and get everything done. One of the more significant changes was Allison taking over the "on tour" laundry duties.
Occasionally she gets a little helper too. =)
Concert in Mississippi
Mitchell jamming with a fellow musician he met at a concert in Alabama.
We had an amazing time with this dear pastors' family in southern Alabama. Getting to know other families who love Jesus and want to serve Him, is one of the greatest gifts of our travels. 
And also, its not every day we meet another family who also has six sons and four daughters. =)
You are guessing correctly if you think this looks like a serious basketball game. It was! 
Pre-concert communication time, brought to you from the green room. =)
In action!
Cooking up an Italian storm a church kitchen.
Birthday celebration time! (this would be post-food, pre-gifts, as evidenced by the empty cake pan)

Our family loved our time with this church in Georgia. We spend several days there, doing two concerts and additional filming.The stories we heard there of what God is doing, around the world, were so inspiring, and our family is excited about this opportunity to share our music, through media, to those who have never heard!
Family hike on our off day, in the hills of northern Georgia.
So thankful for this guy + the many hours he has been putting in behind the wheel! 
Saturday morning brunch of champions, at MeMaw and Papaws house! (our "adopted grandparents" from the south) So many great memories made in this home-we've been here year after year for eight years now!

School/work/reading afternoon @ a Barnes + Noble/Starbucks while passing through Chattanooga. School and work happen daily on the bus, but sometimes (actually lots of times!) it gets pretty tight on there and finding a place to spread out is the perfect thing.

Next up, a few of us will be sharing about the ReNew Hope Prison Crusade we participated in the last week of January. Stay tuned!

  2. Hi Chelsey and Family!

    We have grandparents in Dayton, TN, and while you were in Chattanooga, our grandmother was in rehab there recovering from a potentially deadly bout with Sepsis. We are so thankful that she is now doing much better. Just thought that was interesting the you all were so close!
    Thank you for the updates! Please keep them up!
