"Golden Rule" over "Golden Globes"
In life there should be no "Golden Globes," but rather a "Golden Rule."  
Matthew 7: 12 “So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.  13 “Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy[a] that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. 14 For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.

When I lay out 2016, I feel insanely blessed to be slightly spent.  2 Cor 12:15 comes to mind.  There's no amount of adoration or accolade that can fuel like seeing God's LOVE in action through His people.  Let's do more of that in 2017!

Here's some 2016 highlights, and what's ahead:

JANUARY:  Texas Uprising tour with Shane & Shane, in support of Harvest America, garnering over their volunteers to lock shields in the name of Jesus

FEBRUARY: New EP release - "Never Let Go"

MARCH: House of Blues Anaheim Passion Week Event, Uniting some Socal's largest church worship teams (Sandals, Harvest, Saddleback) to celebrate the greatest victory in history!

APRIL:  Celebrated my wife's birthday!  Big day for me, cause she get's better each year.  So, don't be jealous...

MAY: 3 week tour of Italy, Greece, Istanbul, Israel with Harvest, having the privilege of leading worship in epic biblical places, and having my son dedicated at the Garden Tomb in Jerusalem by my pastor, Greg Laurie.

JUNE: Celebrated 12 years of Marriage!

JULY:  Re-Vamped and Re-launched our Harvest Sunday Night service.  It's been a huge part of my heart this year to see families make church a fixture in their week and lives, and God has blessed beyond expectation.  

AUGUST: Had the blessing of leading worship once again at the Harvest Crusade in Anaheim, and played a small role in putting together the "Now I'm Found" moment on Sunday night at the crusade.  One of the most moving moments of my life!

SEPTEMBER:  Spent 10 days with my family in Maui, HI helping to build the worship team at Harvest's new campus (it did not suck)

OCTOBER: Big month of event at HSN!  Hero Night, Cookie walk, and had the honor of interviewing Willie Jordan of the Fred Jordan mission!

NOVEMBER: Recorded a new Christmas EP, and I'm pretty sure I ate too much!

DECEMBER: Gloria Christmas Experience at the Box Theatre (2 nights packed out), 7 Christmas Services with Harvest, Y2K New Year's Eve event where we saw 34 professions of faith!

In all these Victories and Mountains to climb, it's important not to become stagnant, but to remember there's so much more we can do in 2017!  This Patreon page is making it possible for me to do so.  Please consider joining us for this journey!  Love you, 

Raymond.
