Home Again - Five Down . . .

Dear Friends,

I returned to Greenville last Thursday evening concluding my fifth tour with the military overseas. The tour went well with many great opportunities for ministry and encouragement through the Word of God and music. I cannot begin to express my gratitude to all our service men and women and families serving overseas, seperated from family, friends, and spouses for months at a time. It has been a proviledge and honor to serve those who are serving us, bringing spiritual challenge and words of life from God's Word.

Thanks to IMA-E (Installation Management Agency - Europe), Chaplain Strong, Chaplain Madtes, and Marty McCarty for initiating this contract and making this tour possible. I hope to work more with the Army in this capacity in the near future.

It is good to be home and see friends and family. I have a summer break coming up when I hope to write new material. Many things are brewing in my heart to develop new music and messages. I have been blessed with a great retreat during the month of July for spiritual refreshment and personal rest. Please pray that the Lord will grant me creativity to put these exciting truths from God's Word into lyrics and messages that will encourage people world-wide as God continues to open new opportunities for ministry.

I hope to see many of you soon. Please drop a line to keep in touch!

Pack light and don't forget your passport,
