So, quick rundown of the last week in the lives of Adam and Rizobetto Palmer.
First a little shameless self-promotion…we got our first (and soon second) song up on itunes. We have been working way too hard on recording and mixing, but it has turned out quite well.
Sunday we played at an annual music festival in front a couple hundred people, and since then have made connections with at least 4 or 5 people, a couple of which expressed interest in recording with/for us (fingers crossed)
In passing yesterday, one of Lizbet’s friends mentioned that she grew up with a personally knows both Steven Curtis Chapman and Michael W. Smith…and knows them well enough to get them a demo of some of the praise songs I have been writing.
A local news station wants to do segment on a violin and piano that (if I am correct) survived the atomic bomb, and would like for Lizbet to play the violin for it.
The president of the school has asked me to run a weekly bible study for both staff and interested students, as there aren’t many means here for them to learn apologetics, biblical history, or even the proper method of understanding and applying the bible.
And on top of all of that, Lizbet and I met a new couple who just moved to Japan and were able to invite them to church last week…and I was able to invite one of the women we play music with a lot to come to church this Sunday (fingers crossed again).
It’s almost as though God is saying “alright, you want something to do, some purpose and passion to pursue, here are a handful of options, take your pick!”. We have truly had a string of blessing beyond belief (most recently a washing machine), and our request would simply be prayer for wisdom in which options to pursue, which to pass on, and how we can most intentionally witness to those around us.
