It's already mid March abd Spring is just around the corner!
Psalms 104:33 I will sing unto the Lord as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.

My how the time flies. We certainly have covered a lot of ground since the beginning of the year. We started out in Texas and stayed busy. One of the joys of being on the road for many years is being able to meet people. Of course that is what the ministry is all about; meeting people and sharing the Gospel. One of the blessings we have been able to have is singing at Willow Park Baptist Church, in Willow Park, TX. Pastor Clark Bosher leads this great church. They love music and it is probably one of the most “on fire” churches we have seen in a while. The alters are used often and regularly each service.
From TX we headed to Arizona making a quick stop in El Paso. One of our dear friends, my very first babysitter has passed away and it once again reminded me of those we love that are passing into the presence of the Lord. The Lord blessed in the Missions conference and other services and concerts we were able to do while in Arizona. I have been so impressed with the young pastors and church planters God is using to build strong works for His glory. These young pastor are solid in the faith and have the “stick-to-it” attitude and even in the trying times of the last couple years are really doing great jobs.
Mary and I have a special request. Our home church for 28 years was in Bakersfield, CA. Pastor Terrell Sears was our pastor. He and his wife Linda had two daughters, both never married and still lived at home. The oldest, Pamela became ill the middle of January and before the Drs. Could get approval and transfer to UCLA Med Center she succumbed to a combination of cancer and pneumonia and went to her heavenly home. Her “Going Home” service was a testimony of a life well lived and once again reemphasized how ‘Heaven is getting Sweeter all the time”! Please keep the Sear family in your prayers during this time of great loss.
We continue to praise the Lord for souls saved, lives changed and Christians having their hearts lifted through His word and the power of music. We are planning on getting into the studio to record in April. The Lord has blessed with some wonderful songs and I can hardly wait to make them available on the upcoming new CD.
Keep us in your prayers as we travel. Like everyone we too have been hit with the huge increase in fuel cost. We are trusting the Lord to not only to continue to provide the ability to buy the fuel needed, but it will still be available to purchase we have heard of long lines in some locations.
In His service M&M Gray
