God gave us an amazing opportunity to encourage a couple of churches here in Oklahoma City by playing a violin quartet. Last Sunday evening, we played Tracy Biddle’s arrangement “In His Presence” at Southern Temple Baptist Church, and this Sunday, we played it at Western Hills Baptist Church. I am so grateful for the opportunity to be part of the music program at this church. Otherwise I would never make time to practice violin while I’m here. I am very grateful for the willingness of Sarah Espinida, Barbara Sutton and Sarah Waller to make time to practice together. God really blessed the sacrifice, effort and dedication. One dad came up to us after the service and said that he watched the intent faces, deep concentration, and determination, and would be sure to remind his kids later that that’s what it takes to play their instruments well. 🙂
The neatest thing was how God put the service together. The speaker gave a sermon on the power of God’s Holy Spirit, and then we played a special on “Abide With Me”. So amazing to watch God piece the whole thing together to His honor and glory. What a God we serve!
