I hope this post finds you all well and settled in for the night! We continue to pray and prepare for the Breaking Chains Music Festival and ask that you come along with us on this voyage! We are excited to see God continue to move in Maryville, Missouri! The road sometimes feels tiresome and the challenges insurmountable, but the Holy Spirit is quick to breathe strength and encouragement into our souls!
I wish I could post daily and thank everyone who has put time, resources and their faith into what God is doing through this ministry! Tonight I wanted to share with you about a very talented graphic designer whose gifts many of you are familiar with. From web page designs to calligraphy, from woodworking to miscellaneous crafts, many wonder what can't be designed or made by this gifted artist. Amanda Biddenback has contributed many of those skills to this ministry, along with aiding many of our brothers and sisters with projects they are endeavoring on for the Kingdom! She works full time during the week along with her husband John, yet she still finds time to use the gifts God has blessed her with to sew into many ministries and peoples lives!

I also want to give a hearty amen for the news we received today! Adelaide (https://www.adelaidemusic.com/) will be sharing worship with us the morning after the Breaking Chains Music Festival @ Calvary Chapel Maryville! All of you are invited to join us for this blessing!

I also would be remiss if I did not give a special thank you to my best friend, my greatest cheerleader, my voice of reason (much needed at time) and my lovely bride, Denise! The blessing God has delivered me, the work she does in our home and her heart for people (even this broken man!) is a task that is impossible without God filling her cup on a daily basis! Having a partner that is equally yoked, shares the faith in our Savior, the challenges of life and the passion for this ministry is something I thank God for every day!
So to the rest of my brother and sisters out there in cyber land and our friends and family on Facebook, I bid you a blessed night! Continue to pray for this ministry and the artists involved and the hearts and lives that will be impacted!
