Warehouse Church Washougal

It was a wonderful time with Allen Rigg tonight at Warehouse Church Washougal. Thank you Mike and Maggie Cirillo for inviting us back! #inspire2018 #washington #pastorpics


Family Time In Oregon.

While in the Northwest we’ve been fortunate to post up at my parents house outside of Portland and drive in the Kia to gigs in the area. Best of all we were able to swing a family reunion, with siblings visiting from Iowa and Washington State. We’ve had so much fun with nephews and nieces.

The whole crew!

Here we are playing wiffle ball with my nephews and Dad. My daughter Dez is hitting the ball!

No one has ever accused me of being athletic, so my Dez was quite pleased when Mama joined in the game! 😂

I even managed to hit the ball!

Fireworks show with family in a little town near the Canadian border.

Dez and cousin Kora relaxing at a cabin we went to with all 14 of us. Our little dog, Zoe, went along as well!

Simple Faith Calvary Chapel

Sunday was a fantastic time in Vancouver, WA, with Calvary Chapel Simple Faith. We love getting to build relationships with churches and Simple Faith has had Allen Rigg and I out numerous times to lead worship, share special songs, or have Allen teach. This trip we are thrilled to be at Simple Faith three times!

Thank you Pastor Bill and Talia Henry for inviting Allen and I out and making us feel like members of your ministry team!!!

Pastor Bill taught from Ephesians 5:1-2, with a cross reference in Thessalonians on Sunday. We’ll be back next Sunday and Wednesday as well.

First Baptist Medford

It’s so special to come back to First Baptist Church in Medford, OR, where my dad grew up! There is a wing of the church named for my Grandparents-Fred and Mary Landers. I never knew them because they were killed by a drunk driver just before Christmas in 1969. Today I met some people who had known and loved them. It’s always fun to hear about what my grandparents were like, but I look forward to the day when I’ll meet them face to face!

Thanks Pastor Greg Spires for inviting Allen and I back to FBC!!! #pastorpics #inspire2018 #medford #oregon #grandmalanders #grandpalanders

There’s Something About That Name

We haven’t done this song live in awhile but, with our guest harmonicist at CC Ukiah, we knew it was perfect for our set. I can’t tell you how often this song is requested and seems to always be a crowd favorite. The lyrics, perfectly penned by Bill and Gloria Gaither, weave effortlessly into it’s beautiful melody. I’ve been singing this song since I was a child on the mission field in Italy and it never ceases to move me. I hope you enjoy this version with Allen Rigg on acoustic guitar and Les Boek on harmonica. #theressomethingaboutthatname #gaither #inspire2018

Calvary Chapel Ukiah

We had a great time visiting Calvary Chapel of Ukiah this Wednesday! Pastor Les Boek even played harmonica with us!

It was so much fun to have the added instrument and he sure can play!

It was a pleasure to meet both Les and Debbie Boek. Many thanks to them for inviting us out!

My Allen gave an inspired message.

Thanks Calvary Ukiah!!!
