Welcome to our blog! We endeavor to keep this page full of recent stories, pictures, and maybe even a couple videos of our outreach adventures. We would appreciate your prayers as we sing and play for God’s glory, and of course, stay tuned for more updates!

End of Tour

Well, after about 800 kilometers of driving through the gorgeous landscape of Alberta and British Columbia, we are all back safe and sound here at Fountainview Academy. Beautiful spring weather greeted us as we arrived on campus on Sunday evening and we are now...

Outreach Opportunities

Throughout this tour, we have had many opportunities to reach out in a personal way to the people of Calgary! From music ministry to health evangelism, from inviting people to evangelistic meetings to simple interactions at the swimming pool, we are constantly...

Trip to Banff

A free day on Monday gave us the opportunity to take a trip into the beautiful area of Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies. We stopped at breathtaking vistas and took a hike up to some waterfalls. In the afternoon, we drove into the town of Banff to do some...

Greetings from Alberta!

After leaving Fountainview after lunch on Thursday, we began our journey east to the land of Alberta. A mini concert and a stop for the night in Salmon Arm, BC on Thursday night segmented our trip nicely to break up the drive time. On Friday, following a beautiful...

California Tour — Day 18

We are now finished with our 2015 Christmas Concert Tour! Today, students are travelling abroad for the holidays and the buses are on their way back up to Fountainview! We were blessed to have an awesome trip from British Columbia, Canada all the way down as far south...

California Tour — Day 17

Today, we had our last concert of our California Tour. We awoke this morning to a winter wonderland in Mt. Shasta, CA. Six inches of fresh snow with more falling initiated a sense of uneasiness within group. While the snow might be a beautiful sight to behold around...

California Tour — Day 16

Probably one of the busiest days of tour, yesterday we had an early start in Antioch so that we could drive to the Granite Bay SDA Church in time for their Sabbath school and church service. We played a few numbers for the Amazing Facts “Sabbath School Study...

California Tour — Day 15

It is now the end of Day 15 of California Tour. We only have about two and a half days before we are back at SeaTac Airport in Seattle. We have had so much fun over the past 2 weeks but I think we are all looking forward to going home to our families for the holidays....

California Tour — Day 14

We didn’t have a long way to drive today. We left Mountain View Japanese SDA Church at around 9:30 am to arrive at our subsequent destination in Lodi just a little later at 11:00 am. The rest of the morning and afternoon we had off until sound check which...

California Tour — Day 13

Today we drove from Templeton Hills to the San Francisco Bay area—Mountain View, specifically. Along the way, we stopped by the mall for a couple of hours. Each one of us had the goal of passing out 100 GLOW tracts while we were at the mall. Following that, we drove...

California Tour — Day 12

Our destination for today was Templeton Hills SDA Church. After a typical morning consisting of wakeup, breakfast, and worship, we left around 9:00 am from Fallbrook to drive north. For lunch, we stopped at the beach in Ventura for an hour and then it was back to the...

California Tour — Day 11

Christmas time in Southern California—I still don’t know what to think. Spending a day at the beach heightened my bewilderment and confusion of the fact that it is essentially wintertime and here I am basking in the warm sunlight and dashing around on the white sand...

California Tour — Day 10

“Fountain of Youth Spa & RV Park” read the sign as we drove into the driveway of a quaint community of “snowbirds” in Southern California. As we stepped from the bus, a beautiful view of the Salton Sea unfolded in front of us and the rays...

California Tour — Day 9

One learns to appreciate the simple amenities of life much more fully on a 18 day music tour. For example, sufficient sleep and access to showers are two amenities that we are not necessarily granted daily on California Tour. However, we were extremely grateful this...

California Tour — Day 8

Today we traveled from Fresno to Loma Linda, CA. We encountered some pretty bad traffic driving through the outskirts of LA. Overall, it was a pleasant drive with beautiful weather and awesome people. We all had a chance to rest our voices as we had no concerts today....

California Tour — Day 7

Six hours on a bus may seem like a drudgery for some. For me, it’s a combination of sleep, music, books, podcasts, and enlightening conversation with friends—what could be better? At noon, we halted our expedition to Fresno and enjoyed a scrumptious picnic lunch by...
