it’s been absolutely amazing how fast these tickets have sold. sherwin and i, and our whole upside down 2016 team are so thankful, and consequently working so hard to bring the most inspiring production we ever staged.
we have a company of nearly 100 people… most of them working entirely volunteer… pouring their hearts into producing something that will help us all remember the Lord and turn the world upside down for Jesus in our lifetimes. your ticket purchases, along with the generous donations of a small handful of friends who share our dream to inspire the world, are making this all possible. at this moment costumes are being drawn up and construction begun; cast is memorizing lines and music is being recorded. thank you for your part in this.
our main effort and prayer now is for the students. we know that over 2000 college students attended campus conferences last year across the country. and the teens! how many teens, and almost teens, will be at the conference this year? we hope that the remaining few tickets will be bought by, or bought for the young people in our fellowship. that’s why even when we raise our ticket prices next week it will only be by $5. we know every dime counts when you’re young and trying to go to school. that’s why we’ve priced these tickets the way we have in the first place. our hope is that youth ministry leaders and elders and other folks with money will either buy tickets for the younger ministries or really make sure they know about the low cost these last few days. just 3 and 1/2 more days for buying tickets at these prices.
but for now, i hear sandals. maybe the apostles are coming for their seats.
