After weeks of rehearsals and preparing for the musical, Pilgrim, we wound up here–our final night performing and a fantastic evening celebrating as a cast and team. These months of working together brought us closer in God and we formed bonds (like Aaron Suggs testified) that will last forever.
I wanted to leave this beautiful preview video and video album of our rehearsals on The Bridge that Ron Canby and Greg Canby were so kind to make for us. We will look back on them remembering that this production took us to new heights and brought a vision to life of the path and told a story of how our King is with us always, even until the end.
There were silent parts during the performance, and those moments brought tears and did something to shake us inside a little. There were funny scenes that had us laughing so hard, and they reminded us how moments of happiness make our burdens lighter and bring us closer.
When times were desperate, carnal thinking was taking over, and giving up was the only answer, the King touched Hopeful and reminded him to read from the Book. In the midst of their dire situation and wanting to give up, Hopeful told Christian they hadn’t read from the Book or talked to the King in a while. When Hopeful opened the Book and began reading, the King stepped in and everything started turning around for them. God sends the perfect people in our lives on our journey, just as he did for Christian. If we have a ministry and friends who remind us what is really important, we have everything. The Lord gives us who we need and when we need them.
Our love to Ron and Greg, professional videographers, for donating their time, talent, and labor to create these videos for us. We will ALL look back and remember these very special days and nights with each other on this most incredible journey.
