281 miles later!!!

Well, Amber and I made it to Charlotte, NC. We are here to stay. The trip wasn't bad but the packing was horrible. I am going to be honest. I hate moving! It took almost 4 hours to pack a 26 foot truck and the sad thing is because I have so much crap. I am getting rid of a bunch of it. Oh, by the way if anyone is interested in a crock pot and a broken knee board- they are yours (free my friend). Anyway, overall the trip down was good. I felt very manly driving a diesel truck and I think I was just as tall as semi-truck drivers. It was pretty awesome because I could actually see what truck drivers did besides driving. I saw one guy eating a sub and watching the Little Mermaid. OK OK, I made that up but it would be pretty freakin hilarious. Back to the story! We are in Charlotte and we are loving it so far. I went to Area 15 in "uptown" Charlotte (not an alien site), it is one of those 24-7 prayer areas with art and pray stations. The LifePointe staff and I were invited by the director there. We had some cool conversations about being incarnational in the city of Charlotte and helping the poor. We came up with a lot of different ideas. The big challenge is to actually follow through with them. So, thats whats been going on the past couple days. So, whats up with you all.

6-22-08 set list

Pre-teaching songs:

1. You (Bigger than the air I breath) by Tim Hughes
2. You Said by Reuben Morgan/ Shane and Shane version
3. I Surrender All - traditional/ original arrangement


4. Blessed Be Your Name by Matt Redman

This was my second week leading worship at LifePointe Christian Church. It went very well and I got to meet some more people. The band did an excellent job and I didn't break a string. I am getting used to leading from electric guitar but it went well. My original arrangement of I Surrender All went surprisingly well because it had a hip hop/R & B feel and that is a new musical genre that I am testing the waters. Those are probably not the best genres to describe the song but that's the first thing that came to mind. Maybe I will record it one day and one day you can hear it on the new Kanye West album. Or just on this blog.

Peace out!!!
