This was quite a year for our family. We experienced a range of emotions from great joy to deep sadness. We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary in Hawaii and said goodbye to one of Huntley’s best friends, Neville York. Neville died from a massive heart attack. Through it all, both the good and the bad, we give God thanks for His faithfulness. God bless you as you enter the new year!
What a blessing it is to represent God through the gift of music. This year we saw hundreds come to know the Lord and we look forward to what God has in store for next year. I was honored to be the pianist for the “Summit For Persecuted Christians” in Washington D.C. with Franklin Graham. This was a life changing summit, and I left blessed, challenged, motivated and encouraged. While there, I met Father Douglas who was captured and tortured by ISIS and the relatives of the Christians who were beheaded on the Libyan beach. As Father Douglas said: The suffering was difficult, but what was harder was the feeling that other Christians had forgotten them. I made a promise to not only pray for our brothers and sisters being persecuted worldwide, but to join the chorus and let my voice be heard. Will you join us too?
Another highlight was playing for the Will Graham Festival in Romania. Watching people get saved at these festivals never gets old. Praise God for the Billy Graham Association and the impact it is having on a global scale.
In addition to the concert schedule, I continue to serve in my roll as the artist in residence at Judson University. This December I had the privilege of being the featured artist at the Judson Christmas concert with the choir and orchestra. If you are on Facebook, go to my page for videos of the concert. Thank you for all of your prayers and support, they are greatly appreciated! Blessings,
