which hat(s) to wear today

We had a fantastic evening celebrating Blood:Water Mission's 2005 activities and what lies ahead...Saturday night a group of about 100 gathered in the barn at Deer Valley Farm outside Franklin to reflect and prepare, giving thanks to God for His faithfulness beyond expectation and belief. Jars played a few songs as part of the program, and we also heard some encouraging reports from Jena, our director, and Milton Ochieng', a student at Vanderbilt from a village in Kenya where we'll be working. What a privilege to be a part of this work, waking up each day with anticipation and hope.

I enjoyed playing some bass yesterday and today on another project with Mitch D. He's been working on the Jars record, but with them on the road this month he is squeezing in some other projects. So good to be with friends making music. This morning I was with Matthew Jones working on a song that will be on a benefit CD for Wes King coming out soon. Sounds like a bunch of friends have put together a CD recutting his songs as a way to celebrate him and encourage him in the midst of a long, exhausting, and almost life-taking battle with cancer. I'm so glad he is still with us, though the recovery is ongoing. Please pray for continued strength and healing for him.

Time for a little r & r, but wanted to check in. I'll be busy with Blood:Water Mission work the next few days, with a little music later in the week.

Hi Aaron, no wonder I didn't see you at the Jars concert last summer in NYC. At the M&G, I was hoping to see you but oh well. I see God has led you to something great with BW mission. Keep up the good work.
