The moment when we finished singing the arrangement of “I’ll Go Where You Want Me To Go.” for the first time, I had an overwhelming reassurance that my mission call truly was directly from the Lord, and I was filled with complete conviction to go where He wants, say what He wants, and be what He wants me to be.
I’ve been flooded with memories of my own mission as we have practiced, performed, and recorded the “Set Apart” album. I was able to sing with conviction as I imagined the faces of people that I love so much, who I was privileged to serve as a missionary.
I’ve felt the power and spirit of missionary work more through music played and sung than through words spoken. By recording these hymns, not only did we have the chance to re-convert ourselves everyday, but now we have the chance to change other people’s lives as well.
Every time the Men’s Chorus sings, the moment they open their mouths, they are doing missionary work. You feel that tremendous power coming from them when they sing, and the enormous collective goodness that they emanate. Surely that can change the world.
