Catching Up

I was out of town on business last week, so there were a few things that came out then and in the time since that I wanted to mention:

  • Jeff Steele is recovering from a serious fall and possible stroke. Be in prayer for Jeff and his family.
  • Gordon Mote is leaving the Gaither Tour as tour pianist.  The GVB is currently seeking a new pianist.  Mote had the unenviable position of following the late Anthony Burger, who was larger than life as a pianist.  Mote did so by carving his own niche and he will be missed on the tour, though he will be appearing on Gaither special events.
  • I’m working on new reviews for the Nelons, Mercy’s Well, and the Dills, so be watching for those coming soon.
  • There’s a video making rounds of the Kingsmen with Chris Jenkins singing “The Judgement.”  It’s a very promising sound…
  • I’d appreciate your prayers tomorrow, May 30, as my wife heads in for surgery to remove about half of her thyroid.  I’ll be out of pocket for the next 2 days at least, as the surgery requires at least an overnight stay in the hospital.  If all goes well, we should be home on Thursday, but she has a recovery period of 2-3 weeks, during which time I will have to be Mr. Mom.  Prayers for my sanity will be much appreciated!  🙂

    Wes-
    Be assured many prayers are going forth in strong faith for your wife and yourself. I know God will see you through all of the days ahead, and that His Spirit is carrying each of you. Keep rejoicing and to Him be the glory.

    Pray for your sanity? You mean that you finally have some? 😉 Seriously though, keep us updated on your wife.

    Are you reviewing the Mercy’s Well Worship project? BTW, did you still get the Smile box set yet? 🙂

    • Wes Burke says:

      Yes, the Mercy’s Well CD is the Worship one. No, I haven’t gotten the Smile box yet, but I did get the Wal-Mart Zine pack with the 2012 version of “Do It Again.”

      Oh, and point conceded on the sanity thing. 🙂
