is only one God and He is the God to all; therefore it is important
that everyone is seen as equal before God. I’ve always said we
should help a Hindu become a better Hindu, a Muslim become a better
Muslim, a Catholic become a better Catholic.”

Opportunities AND Our Platinum Countdown!!
Happy 2005! A new year.
A world of opportunity awaits!
Amazing how just flipping a number on a calendar can totally
change your perspective. On
December 31st, 2004 we were worried about money due to a
lack of gainful employment, stressing about our lack of a health
insurance future, and enjoying the playful snapping and backbiting
that comes from the constant togetherness
of a “one car marriage.”
Now, as 2005 rolls in, it’s mostly the same, but it’s
just a bit more exciting somehow.
couple of things HAVE changed.
First off, we are expanding our ministry by offering some
cool workshops to churches and non-profits around spirituality,
happiness, mission and globalization. (Wow… need to work on that brief description so it
doesn’t sound so boring.)
thing that has changed is the financial setup of our new ministry
(which still needs a name, so your suggestions are appreciated.
FYI… “Scabby’s Big Money Roundup” has already been
vetoed). As most of you
know, we are continuing to tour around the country, promoting
mission and service to the underprivileged of the world through the
songs Scott has written, stories we’ve collected, and the photos
Gabby has taken. While we’re thrilled with the money we have
been able to raise for various causes over the past few months, we
still feel like we could do more.
Our blessings are boundless!
We WERE giving 20% of all concert and sales proceeds to local
and world mission. We say WERE because as of January 2005, we
have upped that giving to 50%. If only this idea
could catch on, we feel like the world would be a much better place.
If you or someone you know is interesting in sponsoring us, they can send
donations to our ministry at the PO Box listed below OR better
still, we could use a lot more leads! What groups, conference
centers, churches or organizations do you know that might like to
see our program? Know any agents, publishers, or famous people
that could get us exposure? We welcome all suggestions and
feedback. Thanks to all of you for being a part of our
journey. ¡Dios les bendiga!
