“All aboard!” It was Sabbath morning, and we were off to our yearly Christmas concerts in Abbotsford, our biggest concert of the year. As we stepped onto the bus, I took the seat next to Ryan Cox, and we prepared ourselves for the three-hour ride to our destination.

“Welcome to APA” (Abbotsford Pentecostal Assembly), said Mr. James. “Tuning and warm-ups will start in 1 hour.” As we stepped off the bus a gust of the city air hit me in the face. Reaching the door of the church I stepped inside, sat down, and finished my lunch that everyone received on the bus. Before long, it was time for warm-ups. “Me-yo-me-yo-mah, me-yo-me-yo-mah, “ we all sang, just before our first concert was about to start. After our first concert, the grade 12’s had a health-expo just before our second concert was about to start. Health-expos are great, because it’s a way of reaching people other than by using music. There are many people out there that just need someone to talk to, and if you are willing to be used, God can do amazing things through you. When we finished our second concert it was around 8:30, so we packed up as fast as we could and headed for home. We thanked God for the performances that we were able to do, to bring more people to his kingdom. Then we all tried to get some rest on the bus, since we wouldn’t be back till just before midnight.

Arriving back at the dorm around 11 o’clock, we hit the sack. As I was lying in bed, I thought back on the day. I could see how we were all used for His honor and glory. Just thinking about that, and knowing that we had started a chain of seeds put a smile on the face. Because whatever it may be, even if one soul commits their heart to Jesus, it has ALL been worth it.
