Four Fabulous Friends Fiddle Furiously!

violin quartetGod 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!Violin quartet 2

    Wow! Thank you, Esther, for posting those two ‘fabulous fiddle’ fotos!! What a neat opportunity to be a light and salt even to fellow believers in the body of Christ churches in Oklahoma City! Praise God for His living testimonies – your four countenances radiate the grace of God! You are an eternal impact to those around you. May many draw nearer to God and deepen their walk with the Saviour. The Lord continue to make His Ways known wherever you serve as you continue to minister through Character First!

    Way to go team! Thanks Esther for posting these photos. It is nice to see what God has been doing through all of you, and especially nice to see what my sister Sarah has been up to! May God bless you all!

    In Christ,

    Praise the Lord for the wonderful opportunity He provided! How about y’all coming near where we live to play? VA isn’t too far away, is it? 🙂

    It sure would be nice if the pictures could be enlarged like those James posts. I want to see those intent faces! 🙂

    I’m glad you posted, Esther. It’s good to hear about other things you have taken the initiative to be a part of.

    And Mrs. Parfitt’s right about the pictures not working; let me see if I can’t get them working…

    I know you all sounded great. I wish I could have been there to hear you.
