Last weekend we left Nashville and made our way to the Tulsa area. It's about a 9 hour drive (it depends on my bladder, really.) so we decided to drive to Memphis and spend the night to break up the trip. My sister's family just moved there and it was great to see them and see their beautiful new home! With them being about 3 1/2 hours away, we plan on stopping quite a bit =)
Our first stop was Pryor, OK. We were going to be playing Sunday morning, so we sound checked Saturday night. (It helps Sunday AM not be so hectic. And not so early.) Pastor Dan and his wife Dannel (I know. Adorable.) generously provided a goodie bag. And it was like they crawled into my brain and got the best snacks for the mom-to-be!
This was our 3rd time to be at Pryor Church of the Nazarene. They are a small church with HUGE hearts. Seriously such sweet people. The first time we went there, we were about to celebrate our 1st anniversary and this time, we shared about our 1st child coming. Pretty cool how they've seen us at different times in our life.
Before we played, a young man got baptized. Then, he proposed to his girlfriend. Needless to say, we had to reach for the tissues. Such a neat morning!
Thanks to Brady for taking some pictures!
Clearly, Brady and his wife Tausha, got the red & white memo that morning. Ha!
Pastor Dan and Dannel
My mom said we look like brother and sister here. So there's that.
We left Pryor and drove the 40 miles or so to Sand Springs (right outside of Tulsa) for an evening show with Broadway Baptist. They were kicking off their revival week and we were excited to be a part!
Sound check in an empty church. Lovely.
Oh my word we were blessed by these people. We LOVE going back to churches where we've been but it's also very fun to go to new places. And this church will definitely become a stop for us. They are fans =)
Big thanks to Pastor Mark!
We had a great time, almost sold out of t-shirts (that's a good thing) and then had some IHOP with a few families from the church.
We had a wonderful weekend in Pryor and Sand Springs. We are continually reminded that God takes care of us. We love that feeling. Remarkable peace.
And the weekend was topped off with a lunch date with a dear friend. Love me some Rachel! Her little boy is due on October and he and Oliver will most certainly be long distance best buds.
Now we're enjoying some down time with family. Soaking it all in before Oliver comes and we have to stay put in Nashville for a bit.
