Texas Baptist All-State Choir and Band arrives in Leipzig, Germany


The sea of green t-shirts  and luggage arrived safely at our hotel in Leipzig after nearly twenty four hours of travel from Dallas. Everyone is tired and should sleep well for a busy day Wednesday with a concert in Wittenberg then the opening celebration of the Baptist World Alliance Youth Conference. Please pray for the students, Dr. Steve Holcomb, Choral Director; Corey Ash, Band Director and the rest of the staff and sponsors.

    […] then I am successfully loving in my longing. My two oldest children, Jonathan and Christa, have landed in Germany today to sing in four concerts in Berlin and Leipzig. They went with Texas Baptist All-State Choir […]

    Semi-related: 160 Texas Baptist teens and their 30 adult sponsors are scheduled to return to DFW airport on Thursday morning from a week of evangelism in Tokyo, Japan.

    Many Japanese have been saved this week as a result of the gospel-sharing of these teens and their sponsors; please pray for their safe travel home on Thursday morning (their families thank you for doing so)!

    As a parent I am grateful to the Lord for the group’s safe journey. I know this will be a life-changing experience for all of the TBAS participants.

  7. Ken Thompson Says:

    Thank you so much for shooting and then posting this video (and the ones still to come) so that we may “keep up” with our young’uns over in Germany!

  8. Tammy Says:

    Thank you for the update and the video. I watched the video at least 7 times trying to get a good view of my daughter to ease my anxiousness, ha ha! Thanks again for this and future posts and videos! Keep ’em coming 🙂

  9. Dondi Says:

    Ditto to what Tammy said! We were fortunate enough to find our baby girl several times in the video. Most grateful for safe travel and excited to see what the Lord will do through the talents he has given our children.

  10. David Says:

    A great time to pray for the teens and sponsors returning from Japan (see semi-related posting above): at 9:00 p.m. today–which is 11:00 a.m. in Tokyo, and departure time for the group’s return trip home.

    May the Lord bless the ministry efforts of the choir and band in Germany as well as He has those of the Tokyo 2008 mission team in Japan. And, may people everywhere hear the message clearly: only Jesus Christ is Lord!

  11. Hannah Says:
