Our Christmas concert "King of Kings" was a tremendous success. We did about 22 concerts during December all over the state of Florida. The concerts started out with an energetic entrance by the Matthews with "Sleigh Ride" and the concert ended with a dynamic, orchestrated piano arrangement by Lorne of the "Hallelujah Chorus". The music, both vocal and instrumental, was very highly appreciated wherever we went. We have also received word that at least four people accepted Christ as their Saviour because of the concerts. We are already receiving bookings for December 2005. It was truly a wonderful atmosphere to celebrate the birthday of Jesus, the King of Kings!

If you are not at the right place at the right time to attend a live concert, the entire performance is available via CD or cassette recording. Go to our web site: Click on "Music" and order a recording. It will be ageless as the story never grows old. The title of the recording is "King of Kings".

12/02/2004 - Reporting from our base in Florida:

We came south in early November to salvage through our mobile home, destroyed by hurricane "Jean". A gigantic tree fell on the roof and destroyed it - "total loss". A crane was brought in to remove the tree, then another company was hired to remove the home and clear the lot.

Being the loving Father He is, The Lord provided us an even nicer home than we had before. The first place we looked at was a beautiful double wide mobile home in a park just across the street from where we were living. We knew we were at "home" when we walked in the door! Being the woman of the house, I am especially grateful for a lovely dining room with built in wall-to-wall china cupboard. The second bedroom has been turned into an office/music room for us to use as a "work room"; since Lorne rehearses at the keyboard many hours each day - all I can say is "thank God for earphones!" We are most thankful to the Lord for His provision.

Storms and tragedies of life are a mystery to all of us. In our case, God used it for good in our lives. One of the things listed in Psalms 148:8 that praises the Lord is .... stormy wind fulfilling his word. And we are praising Him too!
