Finally after all the talking and waiting, the band is finally together. The guys came back from Thailand and we immediately went to work practicing for a 3 hour worship set for our base. Here's a photo from that day:
We've also been talking a lot, sharing ideas, sharing music, and just bouncing stuff off of each other about what we want this ministry to look like, sound like, and do. I cannot describe to you the incredible feeling that it is to be starting something like this; to be a pioneer and a founder of a ministry; to take the things you are passionate about and mold them together for Him. It's such a privilege and it's so exciting! Sometimes it's hard to not get too ahead of ourselves but it's also liberating to know that we have total freedom to dream. This is what I came here for.
Since my last post, I've been given charge over the prayer room here on base. First thing on the todo list was to remodel it.
It's still a work in progress and I hope to continue to improve more as time goes on. It was a really challenging experiment, and still is, to learn how the design of a room can distract or draw people to or from God. If you have any thoughts or advice on the subject of prayer rooms, art, design, and the combination of them all please contact me!
