It’s spring! You’re probably in the middle of spring cleaning and Easter preparation, so I’ll keep this short.
We just left Las Cruces, New Mexico, where we were stuffed to the gills with green chilis and encouragement. In a couple days we’ll be in Corpus Christi, Texas, to celebrate our risen Savior.
Following is a rough sketch of where we’ll be for the rest of the year:
- April–Texas and New Mexico
- May–to be determined
- June–South Dakota and Nebraska, maybe Wyoming
- October–Michigan (including Lutheran Music Festival in Kalamazoo)
- November/December–Wisconsin (including Christian Life Resources Convention)
- January–someplace warm
Please get in touch or have your pastor contact me for a booking. Some seasons fill up fast and keep us hopping (I’m already booking for Advent/Christmas events), and other times, well, let’s just say we have extra time for school and trailer repairs. We would love to fill our schedule quickly–no church is too small, no venue too big.
Speaking of big, our five oldest children (aged 11 on up) and I survived a three-day backpacking adventure to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and back from the South Rim, while Christy and the three little ones enjoyed their own adventures up top. The wonders of Creation are very real and evident in the Canyon–I was blessed to share that with my kids. To see a video of our experience, visit our family YouTube channel. (Don’t worry, the video is a lot shorter and less strenuous than the hike.) Subscribe to our channel while you’re there to receive updates about our adventures.
That’s it! Told you I’d keep it short and sweet. Here’s a summary, in case you fell asleep:
Have a blessed Easter,
Stephen Bautista & Family
