Trips outside of the Bay Area.

Just got back…

Hey ya’ll (doh, I’m californian, really!),
I just got back from OneDay. What an incredible experience AGAIN! hehe. I had the priviledge to go to OneDay back in 2000 as well, and this one was again a incredible time with God.

As Nolan said, it was a little crazy the first day (saturday) with the rain, and the thunderstorms, and this californian and his 5 californian friends had to run to the shelter of the rental van for the night. Through it all though, God showed His power! It was amazing to open the van door at 3am and to see streaks of lightning fly across the midnight sky in a spider-web motion. WOW! God was trying to get our attention to tell us that He was there. He certainly was.

The speakers were great, the worship was awesome as always. I was a little overwhelmed by the amount of speakers they had, and before I even knew it, OneDay was over.

For myself, my favorite speaker had to be Beth, even though I guess she was still just sharing the word to us (but she is so amazing, hehe, and I’m a guy!). For worship, I loved both Steve Fee’s set and David Crowder’s set at night, with Worship under the night sky. Steve knocked the socks off some folks. I was right near some Shane-A-holics from the yellow camp (watch one of them be you guys), and they were like, who’s this Stevie guy? I told them a little about him, and they started worship. About 2 or 3 songs into it, they were like, “Where did this guy come from??” (in a serious way). They were bummed that they missed out on him leading worship at The Gathering when they went to try and find where Shane was leading at (which was the Red camp, hehe).

For quick run down for those of ya’ll who didn’t go, the speakers were:

Beth Moore
Louie Giglio
John Piper
Kirk Cameron
Joshua Harris
Heather Mercer

The worship was led by:

Matt Redman
Chris Tomlin
David Crowder
Charlie Hall
Candi Pearson
Nathan & Christy Nockles (Watermark)

And at night the worship was done by:

Shane Barnard & Shane Everett
Amena Brown (Spoken Word, IT WAS INCREDIBLE!!!!! PRAISE GOD!)
Steve Fee
Chris Tomlin
David Crowder

Ahhh, so many new songs, it was kinda crazy, but ok at the same time. I have no idea what would show up on the OneDay03 Live CD, but that’s their choice. David did that new “punk” song “There is no one like You” it was great! hahah. Real Relient K feel to it. Good new stuff from all the guys really. And I must say, Candi blew me away again with “Sing to the King.” I’m going to pray that the song shows up on the CD…. And some of Amena Brown’s stuff too…simply amazing and speechless to how God moved in them. Whooo, Praise God.

Why on earth am I up and posting at 4:25am!

Well because my flight leaves in lesss than 2 hours! whooooo!!! I’m so excited. Did I tell you it’ll be my first time in Texas? The grand state that so many worship leaders come from…good stuff. Gonna check if my flight is delayed at all or anything while I wait for Ali and Terrence. Anh’s picking us up, hehe, poor guy had to wake up in the middle of his sleep to drive us.

BTW: The people who I’ve heard rumored of being at OneDay so far are:

Louie Giglio (given)
Chris Tomlin (given)
Charlie Hall (given)
David Crowder (given)
Beth More (confirmed! She’s an AWESOME speaker!! whooohoo!)
Joshua Harris (Very cool, I didn’t like his first book that much, but I LOVED his second book)

That’s all I really found, but I hope Steve Fee and Candi will be there again…no sign of Watermark either… doh…

Ok, they’re here! Off I go!! whooooo, Praise the Lord!

T-Minus 31 hours till Launch!

Well in 31 hours I’ll be in Texas. Whooooo, first time.

The journy to OneDay03 begins then. I’m excited.

God, I ask you would bless the gathering we are going to have. Come in Your power and Your might. We want to be a generation set on You, with a passion for You that burns deep and bright. Visit us. In Jesus name…

On the Road Again….

Heh, well not really, the title just sounded cool and I hoped you would read it.

I love Steve’s CD. Go buy it now!! Click here to buy!. It’s just super. 11 songs, straight from Steve’s heart to God’s, (but songs we can all love and grab on to as well). I’m kinda debating on doing one of them this Sunday (that What Else Can I Do song).

This is week 2, of our 6 week series on The Purpose Driven Life. I’m leading worship along with the band, and the weeks focus is on Worship, so what better week to lead. I have a few songs in mind, and after meeting with Pastor Kevin today, I have a few more. I’m almost at a mix posistion to do two songs. One is that What Else Can I Do song by Steve Fee that I posted in my journal not too long ago. It’s a great song that talks about worship, and declares that there’s nothing else we can do but worship Him. The other song which is new, and I’m thinking about doing is one of Charlie Hall’s songs called “One Thing”. I’ll post the lyrics in the extended entry for ya’ll.

On a side note, OneDay03 is coming up fast. Stupidly, I registered twice. I can’t find my first registration email, so I thought I hadn’t registered, and registered again before the 2nd price-change. Now that it’s after April 18th, it can’t be refunded either, but I can have it transfered to a person. So if any one of you who reads my journal hasn’t registered for OneDay03 yet (full pass with camping), please let me know by emaling me ASAP!

Things are looking pretty good for our OneDay03 trip. There’s about 13 of us who are going to be camping together, and strangely, I’m like the middle man of the whole expedition (I know like 10 of the 13 people going, hah). Fun stuff. It’s kinda hard to coordinate everything though. If you’re interested in camping with us crazy asians, shoot me an email as well. Or post a comment, and join us in our yahoo group, The Road to OneDay03.

Ok, enough for tonight, time for sleep, and another long day tommorrow, oh, I may go to Dave & Busters! w00t w00t!

One Thing by Charlie Hall

Single minded, whole hearted
One thing I ask
Single minded, whole hearted
One thing I ask

That I may gaze upon Your beauty, oh Lord
That I may seek Your holy face
That I may know You in an intimate way
And follow after You all of my days
Follow after You all of my days

All of life, it comes down to just one thing
And that’s to know You, oh Jesus
And make You know…

(based on Psalm 27)
