Hey everyone! So, it's been a while since we've last posted, and since then, a lot of stuff has been going on! During the time we've spent at home in Willmar we've been working on two very huge, very important projects!
1) Partnership Drive. Don't be surprised if you get or have gotten a call from a team member during these few weeks. It's been really cool to talk to alumni and all the people who support the ministry and make what we do possible.
2) Recording! CTI records an album every other year, and we're the lucky teams that get to be a part of it! A TON of work has gone into this project, and the Reed household has been taken over by sixteen musicians. It's been fun, stressful, crazy, difficult, and AWESOME, all at the same time. It's a lot of hurry up and wait in the studio, so there's lots of work going on, but also a lot of napping and facebooking as well.
The schedule is crazy, and sometimes it seems like we're going crazy, but God is still amazing and working through us even while we're not on the road. It's been so awesome to see these projects come together and have everyone working as one body to show God's awesome power.
Soon, we'll be going our seperate ways for Christmas break to celebrate Christ's birth. It's my prayer that while we're home for the holidays, we don't become lazy and complacent. Ministry isn't something that we should be able to turn on and off, it should become a part of who we are. So go listen to a bunch of overdone Christmas songs, eat way too many Christmas cookies, and watch the cheesy Christmas specials, but don't lose sight of the things that truly matter.
Here's a few pictures from the week that sum up a bit of what goes on during these few weeks.
