Every year we all like to take time to reflect on what we are thankful for. We in Fireflight are no exception. This past Sunday night we had our band trailer stolen. Most of everything we owned professionally was is that trailer. Guitars, amps, drums, merchandise(t-shirts, posters, cd’s, etc), even our custom stage set up. All in all, about $80,000 worth of gear, merch and trailer cost is gone. Like Dawn said on the “For Those Who Wait Tour”, We live in a fallen world that is full of broken people that make bad choices. We don’t know why someone would do this. The point is that they did. Now we, just like everyone else, have a choice how to respond. In this Holiday season, on this Thanksgiving day, We choose to be thankful for everything that we do have and everything that God has blessed us with. We all have wonderful families, great friends, and are blessed to be able to spread God’s love through music. Our trailer was in fact insured. Sure, there were things in the trailer that are one of a kind and somewhat irreplaceable. But at the end of the day it was just “stuff”. Will this set us back a little? Maybe. Will we allow it to make us bitter and cynical? No. God still has a great plan for this band, just as he has a great plan for your life. So we want to be an encouragement to you. When life looks bad and the cards are stacked against you, Look up! We all go through tough and disappointing times. Let’s go through them together with God’s help!
All that we ask at this time is your prayers and maybe your watchful eyes. If you see anything that you believe could be Firefight gear or merch, please contact us and let us know. If not, that’s ok too. We will be happy if you kept our band and ministry in your prayers as we begin to rebuild and keep a positive eye on the future. Have a Happy Thanksgiving and a Blessed Holiday Season!
