My Dad came through surgery fine this morning. His heart stayed strong and the surgeon was pleased. He is now resting in a room and hoping and praying for a good night sleep.
Thank you so much for praying. Please continue to pray that he has a full and speedy recovery.
Here is just a glimpse of Kelly Jo at work in the studio last week.
If all goes as planned we should have our new CD by August 1. Ben Isaacs and Mark Capps have a lot of work to do on the actual recording and we need to have pictures taken and finish (start) the liner notes. Barring any catastrophes we should have all of that tied up real neatly by mid June. The manufacture usually needs 4-6 weeks so that should work real well.
As I mentioned in this post, the working title is He Came - The Gospel of Christmas. We recorded a total of eight songs. Here is the song list but the order has not been finalized yet.
God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen - Instrumental
God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen
(Yes, "God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen" is on there twice. Once as and instrumental and once with vocals. There is a small story behind that and I may share it on the liner notes)
Until He Came
I Could Not Come To You
Three Faithful Heralds
(A medley of "We Three Kings," "O Come All Ye Faithful" and "Hark the Herald Angel Sing.")
Getting Ready For A Baby
Long Time Comin'
He Came To Me
There will also be a short Gospel sermon titled "He Came."
The CDs will sell for $15 each and you can pre-order them with free shipping. If you order 10 or more we will discount them to $12 each and still ship them for free. We had several churches pre-order 10, 20, 30 or more of our last CD and it really helped with our upfront expenses and plus they received a discount too.
You can send pre-orders to the address below. All of them will need to be received by July 1. We will ship all of the pre-ordered CDs as soon as we receive the first shipment. As I said, we are planning to have them by August 1st.
We are excited about you hearing our Christmas themed CD. We hope it will be a blessing to you and your families.
