Johnmark Grant's Top Ten
1.Please tell us the name of your latest recording and your favorite song from that CD. What is the message behind this song?
My latest recording is a song I'm in the middle of writing, called There's a Brighter Day Up Ahead. The message is that it does not matter what you`re going through, you need to remember that for a little while there will be trials, but there will be a brighter day coming, as Jesus said.
2.What is one group highlight from the last 12 months?
My brother Daniel just had a brain operation and had tumours removed sucessfully. Through it all we trusted God and He brought my brother through.
3.What is the best city to visit?
Again so many wonderful places! I like Randers, Danmark, for a few reasons. First of all I have a lot of close friends there, and second it has the second largest Elvis Museum in the world! I'm sure Ernie Haase will agree thats a good enough reason to visit a town.
And,if you have ever been in Norway for their National day ( May 17th ) it's a sight to see with all the old clothes and children in the Street parades. It's a bit like the 4th of July in Usa.
4.Have you been on a mission trip? If you have, where did you go? If you haven’t, would you like to and where would you want to go?
Every Christian's life should be a mission trip, and every sinner their mission field. Yes, in the summer between my tours in Europe, I do a few weeks of Beach Missions.
5.What artist are you listening to right now? Who is in your player?
Miley Cyrus, Butterfly Fly Away, & The Climb.
6.Brush with greatness…who have you met that you couldn’t wait to tell your friends and family about?
I'd say meeting the late Oral Roberts and his daughter, Roberta Roberts.
My dad had meetings with the late Oral Roberts, and when Roberta Roberts and some students came to England years ago, she stayed in my Grandmother's home. (though I have not met either of them, my family has)
7.If you could visit any planet, which one would it be and why?
VY CANS MAJORIS: it's the largest planet in the Universe, and it makes the Earth look like a speck of dust compared to it!
8.What would be your fantasy venue, the one stage in the world where you would like to sing?
It would be on a Welsh Gaither Homecoming DVD, if they ever made one!
9. What is your favorite Bible verse?
Greater love hath no man that this, that he lay down his life for his friends.
10. Name a character trait or fruit of the spirit you would really like to develop in your life.
