Been on tour with blue sky nine a lot this spring, and most of our shows have been on college campuses.
But… this last weekend, we played for the Aruna 5K event in Cincinnati. The Aruna Project is an organzation that rescues young girls (some as young as 10 years old) from the sex trafficking industry in Mumbai, India. check out the event website for more details.
The event raised $14,000 towards helping girls find their freedom. We’re planning on helping them do it even bigger next year – LOVE that we can help out with stuff like this. Don’t think it’s really an issue, or that it’s relegated to brothels and sleazy dance clubs? Better read this article.
From there, we headed to Ft. Knox in Kentucky and played for about 650 soldiers in basic training there. We had a blast playing music and sharing stories with them – and about 60 guys came forward when they were invited to begin a relationship with God. It was a complete privilege to go and serve these guys who will be shipping out all over the world to serve us. Hooaah!

This week, we’re off to play a prison in in Indianapolis on Wednesday, and then down to a prison in Birmingham, AL this weekend. And then, another prison in Arkansas as well as some colleges as we finish up this spring’s touring.
