Welcome to week 2 of Winter Tour. We've just come down from stops in Illinois and Tennessee. We are currently with Aaron Stephens and his fiance, Sarah Hoagland, in Columbus, Georgia. It has been a really good time so far. We've seen a bunch of alumni on the road already, and all of our hosts and contacts have been nothing short of fabulous. We are looking forward to this upcoming week, especially as we continue heading south to warm weather and the beaches of Florida!
Many audience members come up to us after concerts and tell us what a blessing we were to them. What people do not realize, though, is just how much we are genuinely affected by every contact at every venue we come across. God's loving kindness is being displayed to us at every turn of our journey. We are constantly receiving reminders of his faithfulness and inner-workings in our lives and the lives of those we meet. This tour continues to be filled with stories of God's abundant grace.
Team 14:22 just headed out to start our 11 week winter tour (hitting Illinois, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Maryland, New York, Ontario, Ohio, Indiana, and Wisconsin - eek!), and we're so excited to be back on the road again after winter break! Our show at Rockford Rescue Mission this afternoon is the first show we've played together since the end of November, and we're all geared up to sing, rock out, and have some awesome ministry moments with those we're going to encounter today. Please keep us in your prayers as we begin this tour - pray for safe travels, open hearts, and that God will use us for His will and His purpose.

Since many of those who read this blog won't get to see us on the road, I wanted to share a couple videos of our performances in Toronto this past November. (See? It's like you're there with us! Kind of, anyway.) Here's 14:22 covering "For All You've Done" and " Because of Your Love".
Yay! Everyone is back to Willmar after Christmas break! It was so awesome to see everyone again after being without our teammates for two weeks. And even though we've only gotten back, we're getting ready to leave for Winter Tour on Thursday! Today was a crazy day full of much needed rehearsal time, tomorrow will be tour prep day, and then early Thursday morning we leave already! Winter tour lasts for about 10 weeks, and our team is going to be traveling south down to Georgia, over to Florida, up the east coast, around back to Toronto, and back to Minnesota.
Please pray for safe travels for both teams. Thursday is supposed to bring some pretty nasty (typical) Minnesota weather, and both teams are scheduled to have about a 7-ish hour long drive.
