Compassion Dinner

Last night Angie and I met with about 20 other bloggers, artists, and Compassion staff for dinner.  Being that I have about 40 people following my blog, I fall into the tagging along with my wife category!! We got to see many old friends and made new ones. Among them were Shaun and Becky GrovesPete and Brandi Wilson, Brad and LisaRuggles, Chris and Anne Jackson, Randy and Chris Elrod, Spence SmithRyan Detzel, Tad and Robin Dance, and Steve and Patricia Jones.

We ate at Saffire Restaurant in Franklin, TN. I had never eaten there before, but the food was incredible. If you’re ever in the Nashville area go there and order the Fried Artichokes! You will thank me.

It was so great to be around so many incredibly gifted people. People who are excellent and passionate about what they do. People whose faith is real and lived out in practical ways.  Many of these people have been on Compassion mission trips. Many are going for the first time in the next several months. I came away tonight excited for the “Church.” Excited for Compassion. It was inspiring to hear what God is doing in their lives.  I’m so excited about what my group Selah is going to get to be apart of with Compassion!

Click on their names and find out who they are and what they are up too.

    Hello, I don’t know if you actually get a chance to read these, but I wanted to take the opportunity to write. Your music has been so helpful to me. Last year my husband and I were pregnant with our fourth child. When I went to get a 20 week ultrasound they told me that the left side of the baby’s heart did not develop. They told me that he would have to get a heart transplant if possible or have 3 open heart surgeries before 2 and a half years old to survive. It has been a difficult and painful road. A friend of mine gave me one of your CD’s(Hiding Place) and it was such a blessing to me! I think the baby was born knowing the lyrics. My three year old can sing the whole CD. I am happy to say that Michael is 6 months old, doing well, and two surgeries behind him! God has blessed me so much with him, he is such a special baby! I don’t usually write E-mails, but I wanted to let you know what an encouragement you have been to me! I also wanted to say how sorry I was to hear about your baby girl and Nicole’s baby boy. God bless you…

    It is great that God’s people can get together and enjoy each others company while serving God to help others. I think Todd is a great guy. I got to meet the members of Selah following one of their concerts in Matthews, NC two years ago. They are all genuinely sweet and loving people. Their beautiful music that they share with us is just a reflection of how God has blessed them and resultantly blessed us. I got to sing on stage that night with my favorite group. I have all their music and love it. I know all their songs by heart and have been singing them for years at church and in ministry. Todd was blown away that I sang the song like I did. It was awesome just to sit in the front row at one of their concerts. I can’t believe they asked me to sing with them. We got a standing ovation and Todd said “Give it up for Craig. We have never had anybody rock the house like that before.” I am so glad that their musical dreams have come true. I feel truly blessed by their music, message, and love. Thank you Todd, Allan, and Amy for being Selah and for using your heart and gifts to lift us up. God Bless You!

    Hi Todd, I don’t know if you remember me or not but I used to wait on you at the suntrust bank in Bellevue (the red head). I think the last time I waited on you I was working the drive-thru. You had told me that day that you and your wife were expecting another baby and I was just wondering how she and the baby were doing?

    Todd,

    Hello! I’m here in Fort Wayne. Went to the wonderful concert last night. Just wanted to thank you and the other members of your group for testifying to my husband and I. I sort of tricked him into going with me……but, as we left he gave me a heart felt “thank you” and said he was very moved by all of you. It was an enjoyable night.

    Tell Angie, I’ve read her blog for the past two years and she has been a very good influence on me as a mother and wife. Sad I didn’t get to meet her, but totally understandable. Also, tell her that the bloom book club was a wonderful idea. I’m still reeling from reading “Same Kind of Different as Me.”

    I will continue to pray for you.

    Gods many blessings to you,
    Jennifer
