RETREAT FOR BLIND MUSICIANS
 
“We’re all struggling with something, whether it’s physical, emotional, or spiritual…”  These are words I’ve spoken time and time again through the years as I’ve encouraged audiences near and far to persevere.  A strong common denominator in all humanity is our fallen nature, and our shared brokenness presents an opportunity to find unity in Christ.
 
Though the story of redemption God has written in my life resonates with many people, whether they are blind or not, individuals who are blind sometimes feel an extra special connection with me, and we want to be more intentional in ministering to these individuals.
 
This November, we’re putting on the very first SongSight Music Mentoring Retreat for blind and visually impaired musicians, and I’m so excited to connect with the attendees over our shared disability and our shared love of music!
 
We’ll not only be immersing attendees in the world of music and helping them find their unique voice, but we’ll be sharing the love of Jesus with them, both formally and informally during the retreat.
As I’ve spent some time this summer speaking to various blind support groups about the retreat and sharing my story, I’ve been reminded that there truly is a deep need for hope in the blind and visually impaired community.
 
Till, who was present during one of my talks, said to me, “You seem like such a happy person, and with all the hard things we’re going through, you’ve really made a difference here today.”
 
Please join me and Christina in praying for God’s continued blessing on this first year of SongSight and that it would be edifying for the attendees and glorifying to God.  We are so grateful for your generous support which allows us to continue sharing God’s love in so many ways, including through this exciting new initiative!
SING THE NAME OF JESUS
 
“The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.”
– Zephaniah 3:17

 
There’s something special about music that stirs our souls to worship.  It’s no wonder churches across the globe begin their times of congregational worship with songs of praise, preparing hearts to receive God’s Word.  Christina and I count it a victory every time a mainstream ABC, FOX, CBS, or other affiliate says “yes” to airing our “Enduring Hope” TV Special, and our strategy is similar – we pray that God uses our voices and songs to prepare hearts to engage with our story of joy in the midst of suffering and ultimately the gospel.
 
While God is using the TV Special to bring hope to new groups of people each week, he is using our weekly devotional podcasts to continually encourage a smaller yet growing group of saints and seekers who want to take a closer look at the enduring hope offered in Christ.
 
One lady who regularly listens told us, “My mom's favorite verse was Matthew 5:16, and she really was a lighthouse for Christ.  Your podcast reminds me that even though things seem really dark in our world right now, God is guiding our paths, and we have lighthouses all around us shining the Light of the World.  Thank you for your podcast.  We need encouragement now more than ever!”
 
Christina and I were honored to stop by the AZTV television studio in Phoenix to talk about both the TV Special and the podcast (and also our new journey of homeschooling our kids!!) on “Arizona Daily Mix,” but we were even more excited to hear and see the name of Jesus lifted up in the video clips they played during the segment!
 
As our home church often says, “we want to make the name of Jesus famous!”  And through your faithful giving and prayers, God is lifting up the name of our Lord in places we never imagined possible.

It’s amazing to be able to proclaim the name and work of Jesus in these spaces, and we’re so thankful for your support which makes it all possible.
