We enjoyed worshipping with brothers and sisters in Christ at First Baptist Church, Richardson this morning.  We sang some by ourselves, one song with their youth choir, and led all of the congregational music up on the platform.  We were moved by a wonderful Father’s Day sermon by Pastor Ellis.  After the service, we went to Sunday School with their teenagers and then had a great lunch that they provided for us. We are on our way back to Waco now and can’t wait to... Read More

We drove from San Antonio to Dallas this morning and enjoyed some down time on the bus.  We arrived at the Dallas Life Foundation (a shelter in downtown Dallas), and enjoyed playing with kids and teenagers as well as assembling gift bags and sorting donated materials.  It is always rewarding to see a place that is trying to help people by re-establishing a positive decision making pattern. We were really proud of our teenagers as they served well and then sang a great concerts for... Read More

We sang a GREAT concert at the outdoor section of the mall where boats pass through regularly on the river... Read More

We started out by leaving the church this morning at 8:30 AM.  After driving to Austin, we toured the Texas Capitol building and learned a lot about Texas history.  We sang a brief A Cappella concert in the rotunda of the Capitol and the acoustics were great.  People stopped to listen and we received kind words from those who heard us.   After singing in the rotunda, we moved outside and gave a full concert on the South Steps.  Even though it was HOT, people stopped...
