Great Worship Ministy Taking Place in Alaska

Our friend Torry Martin tipped us off to a wonderful arts ministry based in Alaska: Oikeo Music, Inc. (http://www.oikeomusic.com) headed by its inspiratonal President Melissa Saulnier.

The organization offers various services to worship artists, publishes a terrific monthly magazine called "Front Yard Worship" (Masterworks artist Eric Lane is featured in the current issue) and sponsors worship arts conferences. In fact, their team is off to Italy later this month.

This is from their site:
"God is using Oikeo Music, Inc to establish ties with songwriters
in churches there (Italy). We do not fully comprehend all that God is
doing, but we are very aware that God is moving on behalf of
the Italian Christians. We are so grateful to be able to
participate in any way great or small. It means so much to
us! We have been blessed with wonderful connections in
Florence with David Cubit, ministering in Italy for over 30 years.
In Roma our connection is the worship team in the Italian AG
church, and in Napoli we are connected with Tim Faulkner,
Nello and Titti at IL Faro church"

Pray for them as they minister.
