Well, at practice tonight we learned of several performances that are upcoming. I will be posting those on the "Isle of Dreams" page as soon as I sort them all out.
We also discussed the various things we are/will be doing that will lead us up to the performance in Rolla on April 15th. Tracy has stated that she feels led to go down to Rolla to pray over the theatre and hearts of the people once a week until the performance. We gladly send her with our prayers and love. A group of us will be going down to a pastor's luncheon on Tuesday, March 8 to sing a few songs. The idea is that we will allow the power of God to move through the music, lyrics and our hearts and touch these ministers of God, prompting them to promote the performance to their congregations. It should be a great 20 minutes or so, and a great preliminary sneak peek. We will also be going down several times to sing at different Sunday morning services at various churches.
This will be the most prepared location that we will have performed in since I joined the group over three years ago. Usually, we only have the opportunity to sing at the morning service of the church we will be singing at later that afternoon/evening. It works out okay, but this allows us the chance to sing for several congregations and connect with hundreds of people prior to the performance. It also gives us the chance to pray over the performace venue multiple times in advance of the day we will actually sing in it. I believe that God is going to move powerfully in Rolla, and I believe He is giving us the opportunity to prime the city and pray over it while we are in it.
Michael O'Hara (our director and one of the co-writers) also informed us that we will be learning a new song next week. So we will learn the song next week and possibly implement it in the upcoming Easter Sunday performance at St. Alphonsus Rock Catholic Church.
