Orlando Salvation Army Event

Monday, May 3rd, 2010

We arrived in Orlando yesterday and checked into the Wyndham Resort. We had driven 16 hours from Indianapolis and had to navigate through the flooding in Nashville.We pray the waters there recede quickly.

After some good sushi at MoonFish I went to check out the convention center where we are performing today and tomorrow. Rounding the corner I run into Bernie & Rick. These guys are in the Salvation Army and provide live production for SA events around the country. We have worked with them numerous times. It’s always refreshing to know we’ll have an awesome team working with us.

This event is the Territorial Youth Workers Conference. We’ll be sharing the stage with Ron Luce- President and founder of Teen Mania Ministries, Mark Oestreicher- former President of Youth Specialties, Greg Stier & Jennifer Keitt. the Salvation Army always puts on first class events. We continue to be impressed with what they do and we have made lifelong friends along the way with them.

Tonight we have a 20 minute set, which will consist of Kristen’s Full View Water Torture Cell. After her escape I will share the true story of the incident she had in the water cell almost four years ago. In the audience that afternoon was my father whom I had not seen in over eight years. Also in attendance was an emergency room physician. The events that unfolded that day were nothing short  of a miracle. They show that when we let God be in charge, he can turn around a negative situation and change it into something positive and life changing.

The whole story will be part of a new book coming out by John Eckeberger, called The Secrets We Keep. I’ll keep you posted as to when it will be released.
