Link to the new Visual Journalling series that Melissa references: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Ha9LGR2Hto

"Before our home state of NC issued a Stay at Home order, we felt the urgency to gather together - to worship, sing and pray over our nation and the nations of the world. Our only agenda was to get Heaven’s perspective and the mind of the Lord for this moment in time.

We didn't come with a set list or a group of written songs to sing. We took a few hours in the Helser's living room and sang over homes, families, hearts and minds. We played and prophesied through our instruments - because as musicians, we believe that this changes the atmosphere. Our desire is that this FILLS your home with home, releases faith and propels you to contend for your communities and families as we all wait for breakthrough. These are spontaneous songs - our prayers and heart for this hour. We are praying for you and believing for Faith to RISE in these days."
