The Alive festival was a blast!
We had spent the entire morning running errands in Amish country and getting my brakes fixed (rotors too… geesh expensive) so we were running a little late. Much to Pouty-Face McGee’s delight, we found a close enough spot to run right in and see Sidewalk Prophets start their set. The whole drive out she was worried we would be late. Fortunately for her, I have been to these kinds of festivals before and I know that rarely will people start when they are supposed to.
After Sidewalk Prophets we listened to a Q&A with Audio Adrenaline. I really like these guys because of their devotion and ministry for children. After their Q&A they played on the main stage. Here’s my favorite one of their songs:
After they played we listened to Tony Nolan and what a powerful speaker he is! His testimony was inspiring. He talked about his abuse growing up and how he came to Christ. After he gave his story he got the whole crowd up and praying. It was one of the most amazing things I have ever witnessed. Thousands in prayer. People confessing and accepting Christ for the first time. Whoa! It was moving.
Then it was time for Matthew West! He was awesome! Jess wasn’t as big a fan as me before, but I think she is even bigger now. He puts on such a great show. This was my favorite part of the whole night:
Jess took that video so you can all thank her for that bit of fun.
Quick update on wedding news: We found a church! We may have a pastor! I really think that all we have left to do is get her dress. I’ll be writing up more on the church soon!
