The Road Ahead . . .

Well, I have to say I've gotten a little bit better about updating the blog.  (There was plenty of room for improvement of course, so this might just be what economists call "Regression to the Mean."  Although, that might actually be the name of some death metal band, now that I think of it.  And if it isn't, then it should be!)

On to updating . . . which won't take long.

Things in Lost And Found world have taken some dramatic turns in the past couple of months.  We've been working on a live album . . . well, technically, a double live album, because we grew up in the 70's.  We recorded all the tracks, and were moving along with post-production stuff when Michael went in for some pretty serious surgery.

This put our album production plan on hold to some extent, since touring is what makes us able to finish the project, and we're not sure how much we want Michael getting on airplanes and sitting in the van for endless drives around the country.

So, we started a fundraising effort through Kickstarter in order to finish the project.  If you go to that link, you can see the full explanation, plus you can jump on in to help us fund the project and--hopefully--raise a little extra cash to live on through the end of the year, without having to add more gigs to the calendar.

The bottom line is, our current focus is on keeping Michael as healthy as possible through this six months of treatment, and then busting back out in full force in 2013.

If you're a person who has been blessed in some way by what we do, and would like to help us get through the challenges that the next six months will present, we ask you to please surf on over to our Kickstarter page and help us out by taking advantage of some of the groovy options there.

As always, we appreciate your prayers and support, and we look forward to coming to your town in the months ahead!

Prayers Go out to both of you, but at this time especially to Michael. Gods blessings to you Its been a great 20 years getting to know you. I remember meeting you guys for the first time at Concordia St. Paul and all the time we spent playing the Adams family pinball game there. Great times. Remember that no matter what the lion may be trying to do to your body, God is in charge of your soul. Yours in Christ Jerry Freudenburg.

Wow, I am sorry to hear about Michael's health. I am very much looking forward to hearing you in two weeks at the National Youth Gathering in New Orleans - I heard you for the first time in St. Louis at a Gathering a long time ago! Prayers for you both, Marcia Greensfelder
