The next 2 videos are just horrific renditions of the National Anthem. You have to appreciate a country that doesn't cart these men off to a well-deserved hanging. For a beautiful rendition of "America the Beautiful" (thanks to the interns at Our Roller Coaster Ride who caught my misprint) visit my friends over at edgewise.

Sunday night we were at Eagle (ID) Nazarene (Royce's home church). The concert turned into an incredible worship experience with people in the audience testifying to what God was doing in their lives. Awesome!
Last night we made our way up to LaGrande, OR to Hot Lake Springs, a historical resort. Hot Lake Springs is being renovated by a wonderful Christian couple, David and Lee Manuel. David is an incredible artist whose work is internationally recognized. He has pieces in the White House, Department of Justice Building, as well as other prestigious locations around the country. For more information on his incredible artwork, visit the Hot Lake Springs website. We were each presented with a rare print. Incredible! We had a fantastic concert. Aaron Horn, Liberty's road manager, accompanied us on the trip. Actually, Aaron was on youth staff with Doran and I at Grace and is now working on a ministerial degree at Nazarene Bible College in Colorado Springs, CO. Trey and Courtney (Doran's daughter) also went with us and had a fantastic time. They thought they were big stuff. The concert promoter had them hand out programs and take the offering. They were in the height of their glory! Below are some random shots from the evening:
Royce practices his bass singer pose. He has quite a bit of work ahead of him.
Doran was often mesmerized by the chickens, roosters, and peacocks who freely roam the grounds.
We did have an incredible time of worship last night. We sang "Holy Ground" and the crowd rose as one and joined us in a beautiful time of praise.
This might be one of Oregon's most historical sites, but that doesn't stop us from doing our bluegrass rendition of "Gospel Plow". Classy, classy, classy!
