RWRS

March 29th was the Rock and Worship Roadshow in Fresno. What a phenomenal concert series! Let me tell you how it went, what all happened. You know, the details.

First off. Tickets were not pre-sold. It was a come-stand-in-line-doors-open-at-4:30 situation. Tickets at the door were only $10. $10 to see Addison Road (one of my favorite groups), Tenth Avenue North, Hawk Nelson, Jeremy Camp, and MercyMe.

Mom, Kaitlin and I took of and made it to Fresno in time to go to church with Paige and Coleman at The Well, the church they attend in Fresno. I very much enjoy The Well.

So here's the Save Mart Center. There were lines forming at every door around the building. We were very fortunate to get there early enough to be fairly close to the front of one line.
We got in, got our seats, and watched the rest of the seats fill in. Paige was playing peek-a-boo behind Kaitlin.
Addison Road was on first. And they were on early. You see, the lead singer is/was extremely pregnant. Unfortunately I didn't get a picture of them.

But this group here is Tenth Avenue North. They are another new favorite group. I would recommend to everyone out there in Bloggyland to go out and get their CD.
Then Hawk Nelson was on. Honestly, they're not my type of music. So I took the opportunity to get up and go buy some CDs. And a pretzel. :)My buddies from way back when, Danae and Treva, met up with us. It was good to have them sitting with us too.
Sister picture. Thanks for the bunny ears mom!
Jeremy Camp was on second to last. He was good. Really good. I've like Jeremy Camp for many a year now, so it was a treat to finally get to see him in concert.
Last but not least MercyMe was on. They did a great job, and put on a great show.
The concerts were amazing. I feel truly blessed that I was able to attend. There were over 13,000 in attendance that night, filling seats that they hadn't expected to fill. God was at work in that auditorium. I pray that the vision of the performers will continue to grow and spread to all the unreached in our country.

And I'm now the proud parent of a sponsored child. Well, Mom and I are co-sponsoring. She's a little girl from Columbia. Speaking of, I need to write her a letter!

GOD ROCKS!

Cool, I was wondering if you were going to post your pictures! The concert was so awesome. I had a great time, and now I'm really excited for CHIC this summer. There is something so incredible about sharing in worship with that many other people. I always think, that's what heaven will be like someday. Well, at least I HOPE there will be rockin' music in heaven! LOL.

M, A and C too! said...

Hawk Nelson wasn't my favorite of the evening. But then again, maybe I didn't give them a fair shot.
