Steven Curtis Chapman

This is an insert of Jim Houser's blog today who is Steven Curtis Chapman's assistant. Steven, sons Will and Caleb will be perfoming tonight in OshKosh WI for the first time since the accident, PLEASE keep them all in your prayers.


"Why?
So, now you know... the three appearances that have been confirmed out of the hundred plus invites the Chapmans had. As of now, this will be all. Perhaps 1 or 2 others... but perhaps, no more interviews in 2008. Today's "major" post... Why? Why go through it? Why do these?

These appearances were cautiously, carefully, and prayerfully considered with input from the family, pastors, counselors, and Steven's team. Though you have heard about them in the space of this week, they have been discussed, pondered, prayed over, and planned for several weeks now. And yes, it's no coincidence they hit in the space of the same week, we're trying to bump into people we might not normally see.

The Chapmans didn't seek these appearances. But when these many opportunities came, the discussion centered around the opportunity to use them to remember and celebrate Maria, to thank the tens of thousands who have sent condolences as well as the the hundreds of thousands or more that have prayed for this family, to highlight adoption and orphans...

and most importantly that the Hope of the Gospel be proclaimed.

It's our hope that this is what will be accomplished, that as many as possible will be reached, especially those that would not hear of it any other way... and we seek your prayers as the family endeavors to do so in these interviews.

Also, I know many of you ache to see them, to see for yourself if they are ok... I hope you'll be encouraged.

In 14 years in the music industry, it's only been a handful of times an artist I've work alongside has appeared on an outlet as large as Good Morning America. The reach is amazing, the people associated with this program are stellar in their professionalism and abilities. And yet... I wish with all that is in me I was not meeting GMA host, Robin Roberts, on July 21(airing in August)... Not under these circumstances.

And though I studied journalism in college and remain fascinated with it, I would choose not to be in the same room with journalistic icon Larry King on Aug 7th... Not under these circumstances.

And for that matter, our quotes and Steven's photos in People Magazine seen all over the world, and again via an interview on July 14, fantastic... no, not now... Not under these circumstances.

Friends, God did not let us choose. And this is how it is. And so we walk on, hoping to honor Him as we do.

I've just shared some critical dates with you. Do pray, will you please?

I type from a bus headed north to Wisconsin for the first show since the accident. An overflowing e-mail inbox, malfunctioning iPhone... and questions in my head keep me awake. How will it feel? Did we wait too long? What will he say? Is it too soon? Will Will and Caleb be able to play? Will he be able to sing? to finish? Is it wrong to have fun? How is Mary Beth doing? These roll through my head for God tonight.

I'm certain that we've prepared and sought counsel and prayed as well as we can... and am believing that now is the right time... and that God has led us and what He for this weekend of shows is just as it needs to be for each of us.

I'm trusting Him to get this family through. So... the Gosepl better be true.
I've said that to God countless times over these last weeks.
I trust that it is.
Pray on friends."

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my web site to get additional info.
