yesterday and tomorrow

October 1, 2008

let’s start with yesterday…

the first words that come to my mind are…thank you God!  it was a great day spent creating and watching ideas evolve from nothing into something very exciting.  we worked on two ideas that are very different from each other.  one we are affectionately calling “desert bones”.  it’s a pretty intense rock song that moves real quick like.  tim, joe, alex and matt really made this one fun to listen to.  the other is a song i wrote a while back called “lead us on”.  we had worked on this song a few months ago, but decided to scrap what we had done and start over.  now it starts pretty chill and then picks up on the chorus.  your going to flip when you here matt melton’s slide guitar part on the verse and then alex’s guitar part on the chorus.  also…joe and tim groove so hard on this one.  i can’t wait to play these for you guys.


tomorrow we are headed to mexico city for the first stop on the third leg of the Passion World Tour.  we still have manila ringing our hearts and can’t wait to get on the plane tomorrow and head to mexico to see what God is preparing there.  a few stats about Mexico City…the estimated population for the Metropolitan Area is around 23 million making it the largest city in the world.  The National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) in mexico city has close to 300,000 students that go to school there.  there are a lot of people in mexico city.  i don’t know a single one of them, but we do have something in common.  the thing that will bring me and the college students attending this Passion event together is our love for Jesus.  i can’t wait to stand on that stage and look out at 18,000 of my Mexican brothers and sisters and worship Jesus…loudly!  we are praying that this group of Jesus lovers in a huge city will be a light and glow with the love and life of Jesus.

pray for us as we go.  i’ll catch you up as i can about how it’s going.  

love to all.
