Make A Difference Tour: Hope Clinic for Women

What an incredible time we are having in Nashville! Last night, we got the chance to serve with 50 K-LOVE listeners at the Hope Clinic for Women, a crisis pregnancy center that has been equipping women, men and families to deal with unplanned pregnancies for 30 years. Over 60,000 people have found hope because of them! Amazing! Big thanks to Mark Schultz, Phil Wickham and Francesca Battistelli, who came out to serve with us. Mark, Phil, and Scott got a workout by carrying landscaping pavers for a few hours in the Nashville heat, while Frannie and I sat in an air-conditioned room and wrote out scripture verses to encourage those who visit the clinic. Yup, Frannie and I are getting grief from the boys about how much harder they had to work than we did!

 

 

 


Today, our guests on the show were Mark Schultz, Sidewalk Prophets, Colton Dixon, Phil Wickham and Natalie Grant. And, we are excited about the free concert tonight at Rocketown with Sidewalk Prophets and Love and the Outcome, where food will be collected to benefit Graceworks, a ministry that feeds children in the Nashville area.

If you’re in the Nashville area, we would love to meet you, so come out and join us as we serve this week. But the cool thing is, no matter where you live, there are many opportunities to serve! Find some ideas here. Thanks so much for making a difference today!

We are so excited to be here serving alongside K-LOVE listeners, some of your favorite artists, and amazing ministries such as ONEless and Graceworks, just to name a few.

Hope Clinic for Women is a crisis pregnancy support center, they provide help for women, men, and families deal with loss, unplanned pregnancy, and postpartum depression. We will get to serve at their facitility and help with maintenence, gardening, and services to aid these families.

Then on Thursday, Sidewalk Prophets and Love & The Outcome will provide a FREE concert to benefit Graceworks. We will be collecting nonpershible food items that will go to feed children in Williamson County.

On Friday, we will join MikesChair and the Nashville Rescue Mission, following God's command to love our neighbor as ourselves. The Nashville Rescue Mission seeks to help the hurting of Middle Tennessee by offering food, clothing, and shelter to the homeless. They offer recovery programs to those enslaved in life degrading problems.

Natalie Grant Performs at the 50th Anniversary of March on Washington

It was a historic day today, as we remembered Martin Luther King Jr's "I Have a Dream" speech and the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington. There was a huge celebration right on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and K-LOVE artist, Natalie Grant, got to perform. She blew all of us away!

I got to chat with Natalie about her performance today and how she got to be a part of this celebration - if you missed it, you can listen to it again here:
