Brandon Heath Raising Money to Send Kids to Camp

Twenty years ago, the summer of 1995, life changed drastically for Brandon Heath. The popular recording artist spent part of his summer at a Young Life camp. Although his family couldn’t afford the fees to attend, Young Life leaders raised 80% of the funds so he could go and hear about Jesus. He says he was never the same.

Now he’s paying it forward by raising $5,000 to send 20 students to Young Life camp this summer. This money will help leaders who extend last-minute conversations with kids who can’t afford the experience. To hep Brandon reach his goal visit YoungLife.org.

A Note From Mark Hall’s Wife

hall family

The following is an update posted by Melanie Hall, wife of Casting Crowns’ lead singer, Mark Hall. As you’ll hear in the interview in the video above, doctors discovered a mass on Mark’s kidney and he will be having surgery to remove his kidney. To keep up to date with news about Mark, follow the Casting Crowns Facebook page here.

“I’m completely humbled by the number of people that have expressed their love for us and are interceding in prayer. There are no words to express the gratitude in this wife’s heart. Thank you for praying for us. We have had friends and strangers from all over the world tell us they are praying–an orphan school in Kenya, neighbors we just met, long lost high school friends, Christian Music Artists from their concerts, schools, offices, pastors in South Africa, chaplains in the Army, churches, radio DJs, fans, missionaries in Brazil, and countless others I couldn’t begin to name. Thank you. Your prayers are felt.

Many of you have prayed that we would have peace in the midst of this storm. Let me tell you that God has honored that prayer. Mark and I have peace that we are where we are supposed to be and that God has allowed this in our lives for a reason. And He has assured us that He is using this to bring people to Him.

Mark is working hard at the church today to prepare for his recovery absence. I don’t think he is as anxious about the surgery as he is about being away from the students of our church for a month of recovery. Meanwhile he is working on an empty stomach (only clear liquids) today.

When you are praying for us tomorrow, I ask that as you pray you would also consider these few requests:

1. Please pray that God will watch over everything related to the surgery and that it goes well. Pray that we have favor with the hospital staff and doctors.

2. Please pray for complete healing and a quick recovery for Mark. 

3. Please pray that God will give us opportunities and discernment to share Christ’s Love. And pray that we will have strength and courage to represent Him well on this journey.

4. Please also pray that God will give YOU an opportunity to share His love through this. Many of you have said that friends, family members and co-workers are asking you questions about God because of what is happening to Mark. Please please use these opportunities to point people to Jesus. It may even be one of the reasons God has allowed this.

“Do not fear what they fear; do not be frightened.” But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the Hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect. . .” I Peter 3:14-15

We are trusting in our Father God who Loves ALL immeasurably, Forgives graciously, Redeems fully, and HEALS Completely.

Once again, we cherish your prayers and have been encouraged by your outpouring of love and support. Thank you for joining us in prayer for tomorrow and the coming days.

Trusting Him in this journey,

Melanie”
