Really Cool God Things!
Hey this is Shayla.
Wow! It is officially Day 7 of our tour, and we have been blessed so greatly as we’ve had the opportunity to share in churches, youth groups and high schools.
Sunday we had a great time connecting with so many people at church of all ages. It was a pretty full day as we shared in 2 morning services, had a quick lunch and returned to set up for a full show that night. After sharing our favorite cereals while introducing ourselves at our show tonight, 'our host Dad – Uncle Jim' proceeded to surprise us with all our favorite cereals lined up waiting for us when we got home! This simple act of kindness moved us to tears! We proceeded to have a bonding evening with Uncle Jim and debriefed with each of our own favorite cereals! God you are so good!
Jonah shared about Monday so I’ll move on to Tuesday. Tuesday was an official day off, but there was no sleeping in to be heard of. Off we went for a day of adventure and exploring the Oregon coast. Though it was cold and rainy, there was no stopping the crazy Canadian crew. We hit up 3 different beaches: Seaside, Cannon and Cape Kiwanda (Adrian’s favorite). We enjoyed seeing Seals be fed at an aquarium, the samples of cheese at the Tillamock Cheese factory, and we all had great adventures as we broke off into different exploring groups hiking. This day was so full of God’s amazing creation and powerful works of his hands. Psalms 104 has definitely look in our mind now!!
Hey this is Ben,
So today (Wednesday) we went to Faith Bible school, which is a Christian high school. We performed “Lost” (prodigal’s son) in front of the school. It was a really sweet school and they were super welcoming and really hospitable. After our show we were just hanging around with a few of the students. Jonah and I were hanging out off to the side when a guy, probably about 18 years old, came up to us and introduced himself. Then he went on to tell us how powerful the show was for him. He told us that he was planning on going home on his spring break and getting high and partying the whole time but after seeing our show he realized that he’s not alone in his journey and now he is not going to party when he goes home. Jonah and I were pumped for him but before we could say much he gave us both big hugs with tears in his eyes then walked away. It was pretty cool. But yeah, then they fed us we packed up and came back to Jimmy’s. In about 20 minutes we are going to go set up for our show tonight. We are doing “want more” and tons of kids from the high schools are going to be there. It will be exciting to see what happens.
