I hope that your March weather is better than what we’re experiencing up here in Willmar. Last night we got slammed with a blizzard…in March! These are definitely the days that I miss the Illinois weather.

In an effort to get this out quickly, I’m going to keep this support update brief this month. (Don’t worry, I’ll be back in the swing of things next month!)

I spent the past two weeks out on the road traveling with our teams. It is customary here for the teams manager to go out about halfway through the teams’ longest tour and give them some encouragement from an outside source. Speaking as someone who recently was on the receiving end of these visits as a team member, it is a great source of encouragement to finish strong. It was such a blessing to be on the other side of things for once.

I left Willmar and headed to Phoenix first (yay warm weather!). I spent a week with the team there and then boarded a plane across the continent to Philadelphia. I spent another week with the team in the Philadelphia area.

Both teams are doing such great ministry and I got to have the tremendous blessing of seeing it first hand. It was also very encouraging to me to see firsthand (again) the blessings that are continually poured out on our ministry by hosts and contacts across the country.

You’re part of that blessing as well: your support of me (prayerfully, financially and otherwise) has enabled me to pour myself into the lives of these young musicians.

Thanks so much for all you’ve done for me!
