New River News - From Karen Peck and New River
We were so pleased with our homecoming this past weekend. Jeff & Sheri, the New River Band and CS&K outdid themselves. It was a lot of fun to have so many of my lady friends helping out in the kitchen. The only thing, now it is so quiet in my home! Seems like we work all year to get to this particular week and then before we know it, it’s over. We especially thank the Lord that it did not rain.
Our hearts are still broken for the Bowling family. It’s still gonna be a while before they will be back in full swing. Please continue to pray for them. Next week, Tuesday, August 3rd there will be a benefit concert for them at TBN. All the proceeds will go toward their ministry.
Most of you know that the SGMA (Southern Gospel Music Association) and the Singing News Fan Awards have merged to present one of the greatest events of this year. September 29th we are celebrating the 100th anniversary of Southern Gospel Music, inducting some of the finest artists into the SGMA Hall of Fame, and awarding the top artists with the Singing News Fan Awards. This is an event you will want to attend! There have been hours of preparation for this memorial, spectacular night. You can order your tickets at sgma.org. It will be held at Dollywood and Dolly Parton will be receiving the Impact Award and will attend the show. DO NOT MISS IT!
As always, we want to thank all of our precious DJ friends. You are such a part of our ministry. Thank you for all that you do. Together we are reaching a lost and dieing world for Jesus. “Why Should I Worry” is such a timely song for the day we’re living in. Thank you for playing it on your stations.
We are have a lot of great things happening and really appreciate all your prayers that we will make the right decisions for our ministry. The Lord has been so good to us. He remains faithful through every area of our lives. It is an honor to serve Him.
Have a wonderful week.
We love you,
