Right now it’s 12:34 am in Botswana. It’s our first full day in Africa and the Lord is already at work. The whole Reach crew landed in Johannesburg last night and flew to Botswana this morning. We got to meet tons of supporters this afternoon at a signing we did at a local Christian bookstore and we had some great interviews. Tomorrow evening is the first concert of the tour and we are amped.
We really want this tour to be fruitful and we would love your help. How can you help?
You must also help us by prayer, so that many will give thanks on our behalf for the blessing granted us through the prayers of many.
2 Corinthians 1:11
We firmly believe that the Lord uses the prayers of His people to carry out His plans. So you can help us by praying. Here are some basic ways you can pray for us and with us:
1. That the Lord would keep us healthy and strong
2. That we would posture ourselves as servants
3. That the concerts would go well
4. That the Lord would protect our families while we are away
5. That Christ would be lifted up in all that we do
This September we released a short film and album called “Man Up” to challenge young men to be men. Here’s a music video for the “Man Up Anthem.” You can purchase the short film and album here
A couple of weeks ago I took off from LAX and headed to the other side of the globe with some of my favorite people. Tedashii, Pro, KB, Thi’sl, DJ PDogg, our tour manager Steadman, and I were headed to Australia to serve Jesus.
What we did
We spent two weeks down under traveling through Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth, and Sydney. In each of the cities we were part of large concerts ranging from 5,000-10,000 young people. Before the concerts, we went to some schools and invited them out to the shows. What we were allowed to say at many of the schools was limited (because they were non-Christian state schools), but we did our best to encourage the students and point them to Christ.
At the concerts, all five of us hit the stage as one rowdy, unashamed crew. We rocked those stages to the best of our ability while trying to be as clear as possible about the Gospel that moves us to do what we do. More than anything we wanted folks to know Jesus! We always try to make sure folks leave impressed, not by our skills, but by our Lord.
What we experienced
