Dear family, Friends & Partners in Prayer,
Happy St Patrick Day!!!
Well, 2009 has been a very good year for me so far. I enjoyed my 6 week tour that took place from January 16th to February 23rd.The Lord open doors of ministry events in TN, NC & FL.
If you followed my blog @ myspace.com/gentlewindmusic or my facebook page, you saw how the Lord poured out His Spirit on not only the services but in my own personal life.
In Florida, I was blessed to share at Calvary Chapel of Orange Park, Calvary Chapel of Miami, Calvary Chapel of Gainsville, Calvary Lutheran Church in Apollo Beach, & a special night of music & ministry at my host family Pam Kerstetter at the Andaluica in Apollo Beach.
This was also the tour I saw the Lord provide blessings in ways I could have never dreamed of. As many of you know,my van I call M.V ( which stands for Miracle Van, because it's held together by God glue & tape) started to give me trouble while going through the TN mountains. In fact as one mechanic would say, "If it was a horse, it be put out to pasture by now".
Well it just seem that once we fixed one thing, something else would happen. Yet the Lord provided. In the end I felt like I was driving a rebuilt van back home to Indiana with brand new tires, wires, spark plugs and a gear shifting "what you ma call it" that not only made the van drive smooth again, but gave me the cruise control back that has not worked since July of 08.
Another "surprise" blessing was a brand new classical guitar someone gave me in North Carolina.The Lord also provided financially to were I was able to invest in ordering more books, CD's and supplies for the ministry. Thank you to all who came out to the events and to all who gave to the ministry.
It has been nice to be home the last few weeks. It's rare when I get to sit in the pew at my own home church and just receive.Catch up with friends, or sleep in and not have to rush some were. I am learning that after a long tour, it is wise to take some time to regroup. But at last, time for me to hit the road and get back to the mission field.
On March 25th, I leave for Nashville, TN to attend the C.I.A Christian music conference. I was asked to be present for the Indieheaven awards night on March 28th were I am to be presented an award. WOW!!!! I'll keep you posted on that.

From Saint Patrick's Breastplate
Christ be with me
Christ before me
Christ behind me
Christ in me
Christ beneath me
Christ above me
Christ on my right
Christ on my left
Christ where I lie
Christ where I sit
Christ where I arise
Christ in the heart of every man
who thinks of me
Christ in the mouth of every man
who speaks of me
Christ in every eye that sees me
Christ in every ear that hears me
Salvation is of the Lord.
