Nashville and The Objective: Days 2 & 3
After being up quite late Sunday night (a normal occurrence during The Objective) Monday morning (5/20) came early. We were up by 8 AM for Day 2 of meetings and speakers for The Objective. As it always is, it was rich, inspiring, informative and encouraging. Monday night, we joined with Glen Clark and the Family and a few other musicianaries for the “Broadway Invasion”, an outreach to those on the streets of downtown Nashville. We set up at the corner of 2nd and Commerce St. and played music, talked about our faith with those who asked, and were able to minister to several people during our time there. It was great to be able to help and give encouragement to those who were hurting and really needed someone to listen and to talk to. After the Broadway Invasion, we all met at the nearby TA Truck stop for food, fellowship, more late night jam sessions and seeking to be a blessing to the wait staff and the truckers in there. After we arrived there, Sara Medin of the band “Breakthrough” joined us at our table. She is a beautiful, talented and godly young lady who is an absolute delight to know. She is one of several of the musicianaries we have met there in Nashville that has a very special place in our hearts.
We made our way back to our hotel around 2:30 AM, exhausted but exhilarated at what we saw God doing and in His call on our lives.
Tuesday morning (5/21) found us in more sessions, listening to more speakers and getting even more information, insight, food for thought and more encouragement. That evening was to be part 2 of the “Broadway Invasion”, but a big thunderstorm came over Nashville just as we were preparing to walk downtown. We opted to stay there at Rocketown, gathering on a large covered porch to sing and play and reach out to the surrounding neighborhood. After our outreach time, we all headed to the truck stop again. After hanging with a number of the people there, we joined Alan Aguirre in watching a movie in the lounge of the truck stop. He had to leave just before the end of the movie, but we opted to stay and finish it. However, we were so tired, we ended up falling asleep there in the lounge. A security guard came up and kicked us out, saying we couldn’t sleep there. We politely left and headed back to the hotel and got some (more) sleep.
