This June, I will be singing in the Philippines where I will join in ministry with my dear friend, Michelle Sheba Tolentino. Michelle is a formerly sponsored Compassion child who has started an organization called MADE IN HOPE, which releases women and children from trafficking and prostitution. Michelle and I have prayed for a number of years, waiting for an opportunity to minister together. She asked me to join her this summer, to lead worship at a women's conference, "Beauty from Ashes," and to also do concerts for young people in the Philippines. I am anticipating this trip with great joy and eager expectation, waiting to see how God will give me a new heart and vision to serve the vulnerable and to share hope with women and youth in desperate circumstances. Please join with me in prayer, that God will prepare my heart, give me the songs to sing, and that ultimately He will be glorified. Please check out www.madeinhope.org as well aswww.facebook.com/madeinhope. Just yesterday, the Lord gave me a brand new song called "HEALED," which is for all women who have been physically or sexually abused. I am praying that this song can be a voice of truth to these young hearts. We also will be sharing the soon-to-be released single, "ANTHEM OF HOPE" throughout the Philippines. To cover the costs of this trip, I am relying solely on CD sales...please consider purchasing a CD or a few CDs to give as gifts...you'll also be giving me the gift of an expensive plane flight to Manila! ;)
Christ wore a crown of thorns so that we might wear crowns of righteousness and beauty...May you taste the wonder of life in Christ! Have a blessed Easter!
