In May 2015, the University Singers embarked on a new journey. Traveling to military bases throughout Europe. More specifically, Germany and Italy. This was such an incredible experience that no one will forget! And none of it would have been possible without God's hand leading the way and planting the seed in our hearts.
Operation: Freedom's Cadence, or OFC, started out as a tug on our Director's heart in 2014. She could hear God telling her, "It's not enough." Gail didn't know exactly what this meant, but knew that she needed to say "Yes" to whatever God was trying to tell her. Not long after that, the message became clear. He wanted us to take His message to DEPLOYED TROOPS throughout Europe. We had no idea what this meant for us at that point. All we knew was to fully rely on God and He will make everything happen at just the right time.
From the Heart of a Servant to the Heart of Europe
In short time, God helped us raise the money we needed for the mission and paved the way for us to get to Europe. While traveling, we were able to visit with thousands of men and women from the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines who are actively serving our country in a foreign land. This meant so much to us, a small singing group from Southern Wesleyan University, to be singing to the people that protect our freedom every single day. All of these experiences have been such a blessing to all of us on the team, now as well as past teams. We know that with God, all things are possible!
"Thou, Oh Lord, are a shield for me. My glory and the lifter of my head!" - Psalm 3:3
