Metro Calvary, Roseville, CA

1.3.2008This week at metro we miss Roby Duke. Who went to be with the Lord last week. Roby recently had just come to play at Metro and spend some time with the Cimino family. I finally got to meet Roby and spend time with him at the church and really had some great talks. He will be greatly missed. It felt like we could have hung out for days. If you have never heard Roby play just search for him on the internet and take a listen and you will be blessed and encouraged. That is Roby playing in the photo with Richard sitting watching.New Years Eve was a sweet at Metro. What a great turn out that night. We worshiped Jesus in song, fellowship and diggin into His Word. Larry Tagg and I shared some original tunes after the break. Larry shared an amazing song called Row Boat it is an older tune of Larry's and was a real highlight of the night. I shared some new tunes that have been cooking up for the new record. A great night for sure.January 2, 2008 Pastor Rich called a day of prayer and fasting. 6:00 am the church was packed and we prayed for our kids, our marriages, for our country and it's leadership. For the leadership of the church and for God's love, mercy and grace for the year ahead. The Spirit of the Lord moved that morning. We are having another day of pray and fasting in Feb. So stay tuned on www.metrocalvary.org1.21.08I'm excited for what is ahead for Metro 2008, In the area of broadcasting the Word as much as often and as many ways as possible. Just had a sweet visit with our friends from Kenya who broadcast the Through The Word program to a potential 8 million listeners. They shared testimonies with us of many who text in and share how God is using the teaching of the bible to change lives and families. Please pray for Bob, Ann, Martin and Marsha in Kenya, for the practical needs and for there protection spiritually and physically.Also in 2008 we would love to begin capturing the worship service on audio and making it available in electronic download and cd format.Short term mission trips are ahead for Metro missions. Brazil being one of them. I'm stoked to see what God is doing in and through Metro in Brazil.
