Greetings from Hungary and Atlanta. As you read this May home in Atlanta and Dileep is in Hungary - more on that in a moment.

Thank you for praying and supporting us. You are the body of Christ working through us and OM Arts International. From now until October over 60 artists will go on short term arts mission trips, using their gifts and skills as dancers, musicians and visual artist to share God’s love and hope. Please pray for them to be effective, allowing God’s spirit to flow through them into the lives of others.

SALT

The SALT conference was amazing. Some of the richest times were when we worshipped as a group of artists and in doing so God built community. For us as OM Arts leadership, we learned a lot about the needs of artists on the field and are now called to a higher and deeper level of leadership. This desire was clearly expressed and challenges us to a deeper commitment of being thought leaders within OM and to help care for artists better. Pray with us in this pursuit!

German Tour

Wow! What and amazing time of ministry in Germany. It is difficult to articulate in words how rich a time it was to serve shoulder to shoulder with the body of Christ in Germany. the central message of the concert is applicable to everyone, but it really resonated strongly with the German people - particularly when you start reviewing modern history.

The highlight was the last concert at Adilingen with 8500 young people. Again, words cannot describe the sound of thousands of people gathered, worshipping, singing, fully focused on the message, hungry for God. What a privilege for us to serve the Lord along side the sisters of Aidlingen. (An evangelical Protestant order of nuns)

I’ll write some blogs on our website with photos - stay tuned!

Ramping up - fast

 

I know we’ve used this headline before, but it’s true right now of OM Arts.

In a little over a

month we will see several new team members. This is a huge answer to prayer, thank you

for praying for people! We will now have a finance manager, team administrator, drama leader & drama specialist, and some other administrative help. Help on the administrative and finance side gives Dileep some much needed help. Pray that these guys will settle in well and have an effective and impacting ministry with us.

Right now OM Arts bands are in Kosovo, Hungary and Serbia. In July teams of dancers will go to Portugal, Italy, Malta and France.

In the land of the Magyors & Serbs

 

Right now Dileep is on tour with the Bill Drake Band in Hungary and Serbia, joined with a church youth group from California and a Hungarian guitarist and a dancer. We anticipate God to show up and penetrate into people’s hearts with His love and hope.

While we will present the Gospel, we also will be mentoring these young guys. It is particularly exciting to take two young Hungarian artists into mission in Serbia. Pray that our combined team of 25 or so will follow God, be obedient and honor and glorify him in all we do, speak, think, sing, dance and pray.

See our website for the tour itinerary.

 
 

Life in general

THe months of June to October are in many ways the busiest for us. Between work, travel and getting things done around the house, there is plenty going on. We often feel very challenged to keep up and stay on top of things. By God’s grace we manage. We see His faithfulness to us regularly and in so many ways.

The vegetable patch is up and running again: cucumbers, zucchini, yellow squash, lettuce, tomatoes, collard greens. May has become an expert at making the best use of the garden’s produce. - including a brilliant cold cucumber soup! It’s a summer favourite. Dileep has finally finished ‘the project’. We’ll update our blog with pictures when he get home. Please continue to pray for us, as we do for you. Like you, we have our challenges.
