Sponsor a Concert

My cousin Meg’s husband’s good friend’s sister is in a nursing home in Elroy, WI.  They were concerned for her because her liver is failing her. It looks as though she doesn’t have long to live. So Meg sponsored a concert to send me to Elroy to encourage and bless this special person with some glorious Gospel music.

I googled the facility and figured out how long it would take me. I printed out the directions and was on my way at near 6:30 in the morning for the 2-1/2 hr drive. (By the way, have you ever noticed that in Wisconsin when you ask someone how far someplace is, they answer by giving you a time. Such as: “How far is Green Bay? 'Bout 26 minutes.” Is this only a Wisconsin thing?)

So I finally get out in the general vacinity and after some head scratching (which really helps me think) I finally find the road that google told me to turn on. And so for the next 20 minutes or so, I wander around these winding narrow roads through farm country. I finally call my wife who finally answers the phone and I asked her to google my location. Sure enough she tells me that yes indeed, google wants me to sing to the cows in the pasture. 

This totally reminded me of a story I once heard about where a gps had told someone to turn and drive right into a lake!

I finally talked to someone at the facility and got headed in the right direction. I was 15 minutes late at this point.

When I got there, it was packed! I would be singing to a full house, and right there in the front row was the woman I came to see… with a smile on her face. I made her feel special and sang a homerun concert that day for her and the folks.

So here is the moral of the story. Do you have a loved one in a nursing home? Sponsor a concert. (DONATE HERE) and tell me what facility you want me to play at!

Do you not have a loved one in a nursing home? Sponsor a concert. (Donate here) and I will find a nursing home to donate my time and bless some special someones with the message of Christ's love and his glorious good news!

Thanks for listening,

Daniel Lovett
