I like GMA week (finally)

The sweetest part of GMA week is the community of artists, support staff, radio, magazine, promoters, managers who sincerely cheer on each others efforts to reach the world. I was struck with just how much, at least from my vantage point, that this was true. Maybe it was because I was feeling supportive and like a cheerleader myself. So many amazing things happening in our extended community of artists and music ministry initiatives.

It was fun as well to share some fresh songs, and vision with everyone as well....as it has been a long time coming. Jeremy was having so much fun connecting with people he actually got a blister on his hand from shaking hands.

There where so many amazing bands this year! It was encouraging that the bands I enjoyed the most, where also fans of us. It's hard to pull out the highlights from this past week, other than the encouraging words so many people had for us. We now have a little bit of time off, which I'm going to help my wife plant our container garden, do some chores around the house, and write some music.

All of the fans who love Downhere's ministry are so glad that even during your "time off" that you were true to your mission to spread God's love. We can't wait for May 23.

It was great to see you guys again, even if it was 2 pm on the last day of GMA. And I'm glad I hugged instead of shaking hands. :)
I have the album in the CD player right now. Love it - I'm excited for you.!
All the best!!

hey J,
glad to hear your ministry is going good. I heard from Liz that you were up with the family in the last few months. It must have been nice to see everyone.
Jon and i are good. We miss you and Heather though. If you ever come up to Saskatoon, we'll be there will colours on. That trip down south to see you too will happen one day. Say hi to the guys. Tell Mark i saw his brother at YQ. We had a chat and I watched him play...it was great.
Anyways, I want to leave you my email address but i don't know if Jon would like that on a message borad. I'll get yours from Liz or Annie Joan.
love you
