Tour Update and My Most Memorable Moment In Canada Thus Far

September 12, 2009

Just wanted to give you all a quick update from the road.  It’s the 3rd night of the “Something Heavenly Tour” in Canada and we’re starting to hit our stride.  We’ve had a bit of a bumpy start including the 2nd venue misunderstanding our electrical needs for the show and resulting in us not having power until 5:30 – quick! set everything up! test lights! sound check 3 acts in an hour before the door opens at 6:30!  In spite of that, though, nobody stressed.  One of the things I love about these guys I’m on the road with is we all take everything in stride.  As the bible says, Worrying won’t add one more minute to your sound check… or something like that, right?

Tonight there are great expectations – 800 tickets pre-sold, great venue, we’re dialing in our sets.  I would ask you, if you feel so inclined, to pray for us tonight, especially me as I give an appeal for the poorest of the poor as I talk about sponsoring a child through World Vision.  With that many people in attendance, I hope that it will be an impactful night for the children who are waiting for hope, that because of our worship tonight, sad things will begin to come untrue on the other side of the world.

Our Internet service up here has been sketchy so I’m not able to update or twitter as much as I’d like, but I’ll keep you updated more when we get back to the states.

Most memorable experience thus far?  Well, it might have been the 4:00am interrogation at the border by the patrol who informed me that “Jason Gray” was flagged as an alias in their system.  But that was topped today when Taya and I came to shower in our hotel and saw an older man swimming naked in the hotel pool.  Cultural?  Or just weird?  I would have taken a picture to prove it, but…

Thanks for your support and prayers!  Hope to see you soon,

Jason Gray

    Sometimes, there is not enough chlorine in the world…

    Must be a cultural thing.

    Hi Jason:
    We saw you play this morning at Forestview Community Church in Grimsby, Ontario Canada. You were great and your message rang loud and clear for us. Don’t worry not everyone in Ontario, Canada swims naked. He must have been a tourist, an out of towner, dare I say from the US? 🙂 Anyway, thanks again, will be following and supporting your mission.

    Hello Jason; just saw you tonight and you were rather impactful, thank you for great music!

    As for the guy swimming; given that I am from the area… it’s weird!

    Blessings!

    Attended the concert in Sudbury, ON on Sept. 12th, so sorry for the eye-ful at the pool! It is definitely not a cultural thing, if anything Canadians tend to be slightly more reserved than Americans! Kind of cool though because at least now you’ll have a story that links your memory to us as a place that stands out! I’m sure after so many venues they all kind of run together in your mind! We truly enjoyed the whole concert on Sat. evening, my daughters are 14 & 16 and were so absolutely pumped from having not only heard you but also met you and got your to sign all their stuff. Thank you for a great time and God bless as you continue your ministry!

    Hey Jason,
    I really enjoyed your set last night at Grace Community Church. The only problem that it was too short! Thanks for the great music and wonderful message you brought. You are very funny !
    Thanks for blessing us and have a great tour!

    Hi Jason:
    Just want to thank you all for playing at bigchurch last Friday. Not a big venue, but hey – it was like having you all play in our living room! How great is that! Thank-you for coming to Canada – we are a great country, as is yours. There are no divisions in the body of Christ. Blessings to you and yours.
