February is known as the month to remember our sweethearts and honor them in a special way; be it flowers, candy, dinner and more. Well, why not take the time to also look outward to the world around us - at the hearts of the lost, weak and heavy burdened. Many have called 2012 the year of recession and reconciliation in America. It's also a boom time for evangelism as Christianity is spreading like wildfire in more than seven foreign countries including communist China! Again, we await the doors He opens for Brotherhood since He prepares the way. With our new sound system, we can go anywhere, anyplace, anytime. And we know that when the Lord closes one door He usually opens a window instead!
February starts our 2012 journey of sharing the love of God through gospel music. Brotherhood's 2012 schedule is beginning to fill up quickly, praise God! There are only a few dates left to fill. But before "hitting the road", we will take extra time for new material (we have plenty in the coffers!) and praying for God's best in 2012. I was able to get a few of my recently penned songs in "demo mode", as well. The men are excited about the songs: some fast-paced new gospel "hits" mixed with some great harmony revisits to classics. With our batteries recharged, Brotherhood has three ministry events this month. One is a special cookout concert set for Feb. 11 at Garden of Grace (Winter Park, FL) as an alternative Valentine's Day celebration.
Continue to keep us in your prayers. The end of 2011 saw the enemy attack each member in different ways but we stand firm on His word. The Lord is our Healer, Provider, Deliverer, Savior and soon coming King! If there's one thing certain to remember - Jesus is the Messiah and Satan is a liar! May the Lord pour out His blessings in the short time before His return. Amen.
