On The Island

on October 18, 2012

Hey everyone, POG is on Mackinac Island for the next 4 days. We are having a blast with over 3000 women! Here is what I get to look at outside my hotel room:

Here is another shot outside the Grand Hotel where we are staying. How I wish everyone could hear and see the INCREDIBLE messages of Paul Young, author of The Shack... One of the most powerful messages I have heard in years!

Also, Gracia Burnham... She and her husband Martin, served with the New Tribes Mission in the Philippines. They were both kidnapped by the Abu Sayyaf group, a militant group of Muslims. In captivity for 376 days...Martin was killed and Gracia injured... Her testimony is heart wrenching and extremely challenging. Check her book out, The Presence Of My Enemies.

We are also enjoying the very talented theater group called, Friends of the Groom.

This has been a nice little get away for me and Dana too especially before Andy comes.

A powerful week for each of us. My cup runneth over!!!!

So, please forgive the short blog but I have to go and sing now.



You were there for the Breakout Session with Paul, and then he impulsively asked you to sing as he anointed the women. I was very moved by the song, but I don't know its name. What is it called and what prompted you to select that one? This has been on my mind since I left the island Thursday.

Guess no one there is a "Somewhere In Time" Fan. GOD BLESS!!!

Loved your concert and the 23 hours we spent on the Island. Best wishes as you anticipate Andy, Leigh. I brought my daughter, who is pregnant with twins, but only about 14 weeks now. Such a special time. Our other daughter has Rett Syndrome, so I love to hear that POG is giving to Special Olympics!!!
