So we had to drive from Saint Petersburg, FL to Savannah, GA today...Al Henderson Boulevard to be exact. Our calendar said it was Al Henderson Avenue, so Steven punched it into the GPS, which only brought up Henderson Avenue in Savannah. So he figured that was it and went with it. We were looking for a big church. One of the worst feelings has got to be when the GPS says, "You have arrived" and what you are looking for is nowhere in sight! We had arrived alright, just not where we wanted to. A quick call to the church confirmed that there is indeed a difference between Henderson Avenue and Al Henderson Boulevard. We were 13 miles out of the way (which is a long way when you've been driving all day). To top it all off, that 13 miles took 45 minutes because we were now in rush hour traffic! I think there needs to be a law that says no town can have 2 roads with remotely the same name. Second, come on GPS!!

They all have a story...
This year's children came to us all the way from Nepal, Uganda and the Philippines. Most of them come from children's homes, but they all have a story of trials that God has brought them through. Some of them have faced things in their young lives that most of us won't face in a lifetime. We praise the Lord for the ministries that love and care for these kids, and most importantly, are teaching them what it means to live for Christ. These children are the future Christian leaders to some of the most unreached areas of our world. We are so blessed to be able to disciple them and have them here as missionaries to the U.S. this year.
Everywhere we tour, people have the opportunity to give HOPE by sponsoring a child. Just $30 a month provides a little boy or girl with food, clothing, medicine and an education, but it also gives that child the opportunity to hear about Jesus...the only HOPE for eternity! Maybe this is something you've always wanted to do, but you just wanted to make sure it was a trustworthy organization. Maybe you came to a concert and are still thinking about it. Whatever the case, we hope that you will prayerfully consider sponsoring a child. There's no better time to invest in eternity!
'09-'10 tour schedule to come...we'll be heading west this year!
