ICRS

ICRS kicked off Sunday evening with music by Jeremy Camp and The Museum. Then Randy Alcorn spoke. That was followed by what is usually a concert with several groups representing a variety of styles. But not this year. It was mostly people speaking. Phil Vischer, creator of Veggie Tales, the guy who wrote Son of Hamas, and the producer of Fireproof all spoke. It ran until 10pm and Kaleb didn't make it through awake. There were two Southern Gospel groups who did a couple of songs. I was disappointed not hear all the music like in past years. The speakers were good but it was really long for the little ones.












Monday morning was the opening of the floor. Steve Green sang. He sang at my cousin's wife's funeral (Jim Bowers) but I wasn't able to go. Steve grew up on the mission field. Josh McDowell did a devotional.

Left at noon with the intentions of going to the zoo again but it was full!! Cars were backed up over a mile because the lot was full. We came back to the hotel and the kids swam while I did laundry. We are going out in search of a park in a while. Tomorrow we tour Concordia publishing House.
