Rehearsal with Friends

It's been years since I've sung in a choir. But that's about to change!

Korban Miller serves on our JV Poland team leading Fusion music ministry there. He's a gifted musician, with an unusual ability to bring much glory to the Lord while using his gifts with outstanding excellence.

For the past few years he's put together a worship band for our fall conferences, selecting music, arranging it and leading in a most winsome and humble way.

This year he did the same, but added in a choir and horn section to bring something special for the 25th anniversary celebration!

This summer he sent all of us the arrangements on sheet music, along with recordings he'd made, singing every part for each song so that we'd be able to learn quicker.

He asked us all to know our music and memorize it before coming to conference since we'd only have one rehearsal together before the celebration.

This afternoon, we gathered together at the cultural house in Frydlant for that rehearsal. What an amazing couple of hours, pulling it all together with so many talented people, using their gifts to bring joy to the Lord and blessing to our JV family.

It was truly one of the highlights of conference to sing and make music with everyone, especially the soprano section! 😉

Just minutes before the evening program began, we gathered behind the curtains on stage for prayer and last instructions on how the night would go.

Korban's wife, Tanya, and his baby daughter and 4 other children got to be here this evening!

And then it was 3 - 2 - 1...SHOWTIME!
