“Greetings from YWAM Harpenden, England!”
Time is roaring by and the London 2012 Summer Olympics begin in less than a week! As you can imagine, things are moving at a rapid pace as athletes, visitors and outreach teams from all over the world are gathering in London and surrounding host cities.
Last week on Tuesday, there was a record 250,000 people who arrived into Heathrow Airport alone. Other airports are reporting the same things.
The Olympic Torch is approaching the site and we were able to see the run through nearby Luton.
One of the bands that we are hosting is “Fruhstuck” from Poland. They arrive on Friday, July 27 and will play for 3 days. We are asking you to pray for the band and other groups who are part of this outreach. The weather is a big factor, as this is England and outside stages can be affected by rain.
Here is their schedule:
FRIDAY, JULY 27……St. John Strafford……….14:00 (2:00pm)….30 minute set
18:00 (6:00pm)….45 minute set
This concert is near where the Olympic Village is located and the bands will be playing on an outside stage where many people will be passing by.
SATURDAY, JULY 28…..Wimbleton Soul in the City……14:30 (2:30pm)…….45 minute set
16:30 (4:30pm)…… 45 minute set
Another concert near Wimbleton Tennis Court area on an outside stage.
SUNDAY, JULY 29………The Velvet Bar………13:30 (1:30pm)…….45 minute set
16:00 (4:00pm)…….45 minute set
21:00 (9:00pm)…….45 minute set
This bar is located in The Long Acre area.
Check the band out at: www.fruhstuck.pl
It will be wild and crazy for transporting the band around. Most of the time, we will be on the different Underground Train lines where thousands of people who will be “on board”.

Forward Under a Dying Sun

Most of these days, the sun rises and sets on a world that feels like it's dying. Across the pond, where Employed to Serve calls home, they're learning how to support their latest record a year into its release. HM contributor Andrew Voigt recently sat down with Justine Jones to learn more about the band, marrying your bandmates, and their outside shot at touring with Rammstein.

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.
