Helping our Military



 I know this isn't Scotty related but a good friend of mine has just now assumed the responsiblity of  this ministry at her church. I have had several family members and friends that are currently in the military or retired from the military so I think this is an awesome thing and wanted to help her spread the word about this ministry by posting it on this site.  Donna :)


Operation M’Brace is a nonprofit ministry created in a small church on the Texas Mexico border.  The idea behind it is simple, but important.  This ministry was created to pair one Christian with one active member of our prestigious armed forces, in agreement to pray for the safety of our troops. With a small donation of $10 the Christian will receive the name of a military member along with a bracelet, engraved with the soldiers’ name.  The minimal donation covers the cost of bracelet, engraving and shipping.  There is no profit made from this ministry.  

Many Christian’s already pray for the safe return home for our servicemen and women but this is a way to make our prayers much more personalized and, hopefully, a way to feel connected.  For the military member, the connection can often come as a feeling of comfort in a universe where comforts come few and far in between.  He or she may feel at ease knowing, someone, somewhere is lifting their name up to the Lord for protection and eternal blessings.  For the Christian, it is in knowing that one small deed, can greatly impact not only a person, but hopefully, an entire military to the greatest country on Earth.

We ask that you visit the website at opmbrace.org to help in this simple idea, in any way you can. Military members can add their name to the prayer list, free of charge. But what is equally important; we ask that you spread the word with whomever you know, in every way possible. We have a Facebook page that is currently under construction but feel free to “like” it as well as follow our twitter account @opmbrace.  We will be posting motivational verses or quotes and keep you updated, to the best of our ability, how many soldiers have been reached and how the ministry is doing. 

Thank you for your time and cooperation. 

God Bless you, our servicemen and women, and our country.


New tour dates (hopefully) coming in December

Scotty McCreery to perform at Craven Country Jamboree

Just want to take a minute to address all the comments about Scotty not opening for Kenny at this event. As you can see in the large, bolded text below it says opening for Chesney - I copied and pasted that directly from the metro news link that is posted right below that is why I titled it as he was an opener.  But thank you all so much for bringing this to my attention that the actual website doesn't have it listed as that - this let's me know that you really are taking the time to read the articles we post hear! :) -- Donna

 Just a little bit of information about the fesitval
The "World's Greatest Country Music Festival" is the longest running multi-day music festival in Canada. It has been on the same site for nearly 30 years - in the middle of the beautiful Qu'Appelle Valley. Our endless blue skies and rolling green hills are a treat for the eyes, but that's just the beginning of this extraordinary experience.

For four days in July, 23,500 fans a day visit from every corner of the globe. But we never lose our prairie charm. The people are friendly, the atmosphere is fun, and the musical talent is next to none.
The main attraction is the stellar talent gracing the main stage every day. The Craven Country Jamboree attracts the hottest stars, and the best new talent country music has to offer.
