Give Thanks!

We’re at the end of our Spring Tour and what a journey it’s been! This tour, we spent over 100 hours in the van and traveled up to Manitoba, Canada, all the way to California and back to Minnesota in the span of 3 weeks.

We just played our last official concert in town at Community Christian School. What a great way to end our time of touring with this team. As we played our last set, we talked how thankful we were for this year and for what God has done. Honestly, there are countless things to be thankful for. Yes, this year was full of challenges and hardships, but also lots of growth and learning. I am constantly in awe of how God gave me the opportunity to travel all across the United States, Canada and overseas doing what I love.

  • I got to see new places, admiring beautiful landscape and scenery driving across the country.
  • I got to meet so many fellow brothers and sisters in Christ who love the Lord and are SO passionate about the ministries they are involved in at their churches and in their communities.
  • I got to travel with 6 people that I never would have met if it weren’t for CTI and now we’re practically family. (I also have friends ALL over the States now!)
  • Most of all, I got to experience God’s faithfulness and how He has provided for our team this entire year. In times of worry, doubt, discouragement, God never failed us and still accomplished His work in and through us. Like it says in 1 Timothy 2 “if we are faithless; He remains faithful.”

These are just a few reasons for me to be thankful today! All of these things point me back to God’s ultimate demonstration of His love for us: through Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross. The truest form of love was how God chose to redeem us, to save us and to continue making us and shaping us more into His likeness everyday…and for that I am TRULY thankful.

Here are a few highlights from our tour:

Beautiful sunrise pictures at the Grand Canyon in Arizona!

Our stop in Arizona’s Petrified Forest National Park.

What a year of learning and growth it’s been! We will be playing a few more shows here in town on the weekends and will be preparing to train the summer teams that are coming soon. Thank you all so much for your support!

Much love from CTI 14:22!
