Michael W. Smith Tour

June 19, 2012

Jon and Family with Michael W. Smith during the 2012 Wonder Worship and Glory Tour

Well it has been a month now since I got home from such an incredible cross country tour with Michael W. Smith! Today as I look to the bookshelf in my office I see the very first records I ever owned as a boy, now signed by the artist – Michael himself. It is so humbling to see how God has used my past to bring Glory to His name today as I get to something I absolutely love to do – worship God and help other do the same!

The tour was such an incredible journey as we saw 11 amazing nights as we toured together from coast to coast ministering to thousands of people. On the tour I was so blessed to share about our Compassion Canada sponsor child – little Yordy (8 years old) – who we met only months earlier in Dominican Republic. As we shared about sponsorship, God whispered to so many hearts across the audiences and we saw over 850 children sponsored on the tour. Unbelievable!

What an amazing experience and opportunity to minister on this tour with the first artist who so powerfully influenced me as a 12 year old boy. I still remember listening to songs like “Rockettown”, “Go West Young Man”, “Place in this World” (my school’s Grade 9 graduation song) and who could forget “Friends”(my grade 6 school graduation song). These songs will forever be engrained in my memories and now this tour and seeing so many lives changed with Michael will be another amazing memory in the years to come!
