Voices of Victory Road Trip

20200618_135630This past Thursday the Voices of Victory quartet along with our wives left West Michigan bright and early (3:30 a.m.!) for a concert trip to Sioux Falls, South Dakota and Sioux Center, Iowa.

We ran into a powerful thunderstorm about an hour from Sioux Falls – the sky was amazing – and so was the sheets of rain!

Thursday night we did a concert in Heritage PRC in Sioux Falls, SD and had a nice crowd of people from the Siouxland area.

20200618_172632It was great being able to sing for a live audience again after so many missed opportunities (cancelled programs) during the COVID-19 lockdown. Thanks to all who came out for our concert – it was a wonderful night!

From there we went back east to Orange City where we are staying. Orange City has a strong Dutch background and its influence in found throughout the town – from the large windmill on its main street to the storefronts that all display Dutch architecture (besides all the Dutch-named businesses – The Netherlander Restaurant, The Dutch Inn, etc.).

On the street where our rental place is located is a home with a cool little library. And there is another one (sponsored by Pella Window Company) in the park where our outdoor concerts are being held in Sioux Center, Iowa.

We are in Sioux Center (Central Park) for the annual Hope Haven fundraiser. This event brings together groups from all over the Midwest to support the wonderful cause of Christian care for the developmentally disabled through Hope Haven. We are thrilled to be part of this event after a four-year hiatus.
