It’s time for an update.
It’s been a great tour so far. We’ve really enjoyed hanging out with Carolina Story, getting to know them, and hearing them play every night. If you haven’t checked them out yet, you really should: http://www.carolinastory.com.
Our tour of Arkansas went very well. My favorite night was probably Tuesday at the Glenhaven Youth Ranch. The ranch serves as a home for kids from broken homes. It was really cool hanging out with the kids and hearing bits and pieces of their stories. It was also really encouraging to talk with the staff at the ranch. It felt like we were singing “Faint Not” specifically for them that evening.
And of course, the ranch had horses. We didn’t stay long enough to ride, but we did meet a few. I think this one is Patches:
We’ve been in Texas for a few days now. We had a much needed day off yesterday, and this afternoon we’re headed over to the Gospel Rescue Mission in Ft. Worth to play music for their evening services. I believe that it’s the mission where the book Same Kind of Different as Me was birthed. If you haven’t read that book, I highly suggest it. It’s really powerful.
Tomorrow we’re at TCU, Thursday we’ll be in Denton, Friday Carrollton, and Saturday we’ll play a house show at my parents’ house in Keller. Should be a good week.
I’ll leave you with a few photos from the road:
