A SPECIAL REQUEST FROM THE GARMS FAMILY
March 5th, 2010 - From the Garms' computer desk
How quickly March has come upon us! With the snow melting in the front
yard and the sound of birds outside, spring is just around the corner.
With March has come a wonderful opportunity for the Great Adventure
Gospel Band: a trip to Nebraska! Our friends, Merv and Melanie
Dehning, have invited our band to minister in the Corn Husker State and
we are very excited to share our music down there. We will be
leaving the morning of March 11th for Lincoln, NE and hopefully arrive
late in the afternoon. We will sing at Trinity Lutheran School on
Friday morning and then at Messiah Lutheran School at 2:00 p.m. After
losing another hour of sleep with the time change, Sunday finds us
singing for two worship services at Trinity Lutheran Church and
providing a family concert between services. Then we'll head home to
As we look forward to this journey, we ask for your support and prayers:
* First, pray for a safe trip for our family. Ask for peace, patience,
and protection as we make our way to Lincoln. Pray for good weather,
good roads, and wisdom for Dad as he drives the van and trailer.
* Second, pray for Mal (http://www.greatadventurefamily.com/mal.html)
and his safety here in Minnesota. Pray we would be able to find
someone to check in with him while we are gone.
* Third, pray for quick healing and a speedy recovery from colds and
fevers that have affected our family, especially the younger three and
our lead singer, Leesha. Pray for strong voices and able bodies
to accomplish what the Lord has given us to do.
* Fourth, pray for the Lord's message to touch the hearts of those who
hear our music and words. Pray we would be ambassadors (Ephesians
6:19-20) for Jesus Christ and we would be light in a dark world
* Fifth, pray for our spiritual and physical protection as we have been
undergoing intense and horrific trials in our life as a family and
individually. Pray we would be protected from Satan (1st Peter
5:8) and nothing would come to us that wasn't intended for our
journey. Ask God to give us strength and hope to keep going on.
Let me share with you some verses from 1st Peter, chapter 5, that are
very comforting during this time in our lives:
"Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around
like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in
your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being
experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world. And after you
have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, Who has called you
to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself restore, confirm,
strengthen, and establish you. To Him be the dominion forever and
ever. Amen." (1st Peter 5:8-11 ESV)
What a comforting passage! I pray it strengthens you as much as it
brings hope to us.
Thank you for your friendship and support in the Lord. We know God has
given us the best "pit crew" ever through you and we thank God for you.
We'll keep you updated and let you know the praise reports!
Blessings and Joy in the Journey!
