Promise 2010

Our oldest son just returned from a two week long music tour with Great Lakes Christian College. This is his second year involved in this program and we can not say enough good things about it. It is all high school kids from Michigan, Indiana, Ohio and there was even a young lady from Pennsylvania this year! They spend the first week on campus practicing around nine hours a day. The second week they spend on the road touring churches, this year in Michigan and Indiana. They had an awesome message and the home concert was last Friday night. Here are some of the FIVE HUNDRED or so pictures he came home with! (thanks Maxx!!)
