LANZA Band Update

March 29, 2013
Hey everyone it’s been a while since we’ve written anything but lot’s has been happening with us as we follow the crazy and wonderful path that God has for us. The Lord has been teaching us so much and He is definitely changing us daily. We’ve really been learning how important it is to speak faith and not doubt and to believe that with God “all things are possible”. Rather then getting bogged down in the daily cares and circumstances of this life we want to live in the incredible miracle – faith realm of Jesus.
We believe that the Lord is choosing those around the world who will be totally sold out for Him  and who will live according to His word and daily direction. We feel that it’s like Gideon’s Army. It’s a people who will radically obey the Lord and the result will be radical victory. God whittled Gideon’s Army down to only 300 of those that He chose for the battle. Gideon’s 300 went up against a Midiante army that the bible tells us was  ” thick as locusts” and that “their camels could no more be counted than the sand on the seashore”. Three hundred men with trumpets and empty jars with torches inside them against this massive army. But Gideon’s army had the most valuable weapon of all, a word from the Lord. That word was that ,”with the three hundred men I will save you and give the Midianites into your hands”.  The 300 surrounded the huge Midianite army, broke the jars and blew their trumpets and this caused such confusion in the Midianite camp that they began to attack each other.
This one act of radical obedience brought a miraculous, impossible, radical victory. We believe that God is raising up a new “Gideon’s Army” for such a time as this. A generation who will obey God to the extreme and truly believe that with God all things are possible. A generation who will believe that simple obedience to God will change nations. This is not a movement or a cause it’s just an “army” chosen by God who is totally sold out for Him.
We don’t know all that God wants us to do or everywhere He wants us to go but we want to be a blessing and encouragement to all who feel called to be part of this modern day “Gideon’s Army”. Please pray with us and for us that we can join together to encourage each other and worship Jesus together and learn what God is teaching us and to hear what He is saying to us. As it says in Jeremiah 29:11: “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”. Oh and what a great future it is.
God bless you

The Journey of “Your Heart”

May 22, 2012

Hey everyone. So many amazing things have happened in the course of recording our new CD, “Your Heart”. It all started almost 4 years ago and by the grace of God we hope to have the CD released next month. So, I want to share some of this journey with everyone because whether you’re a musician or not I really think you’ll be able to relate to what happened to our family over the course of recording this new CD.

I guess for today I’ll start at the very beginning. When we went to start this project we felt the Lord tell us to do this particular project in the studio where we could do more production overall. Of course as in all of our projects the main thing is for the spirit of worship to be in the music and for people to feel the presence of God when they listen. To start out we needed a studio where we could get a good drum sound to record the basic tracks. After some praying and some searching we were connected with a very famous studio here in our area called Fantasy Studios. Everyone from Santana to Stevie Wonder to U2 and many more have recorded there. Much to our surprise and delight God opened the door and made a way for us to record at Fantasy. When the day came for us to record the basic tracks we brought all our equipment into the studio. We set up the drums, bass, guitars, keyboards and all the mics. As I stood there preparing to start the recording it came to me that this was the exact same studio I had been in years before I was saved recording with my band and being produced by Motown producer, Harvey Fuqua. Now things had come around full circle and here I was again recording for Jesus. Years before I had been there doing my own thing and trying to become a famous music star. Now years later I was at the exact same studio praising God and making music for Him. As I stood in Fantasy studios I was overwhelmed by the mercy and grace of God and His power to redeem.

So that’s how it all started. With a mircale of God’s grace and mercy in taking a lost musician, turning his life around and bringing him around full circle to be a worshiper of the one true God.

More to come next time. Lot’s more to tell in future blogs. Thanks for coming to visit us. See you again soon.

Our Trip To Europe Spring ’09!

April 24, 2009

Wow! Just returned back to San Francisco yesterday from a two – week tour of Europe that was powerful and amazing. On the plane trip back I thought of how great it is that God allows us through Him to touch other people’s lives. A prayer, a word from God or a call to salvation can literally change someone’s life forever. This is just one of the many incredible things about our God and this is always what I remember most from our trips. Not the events or the locations but the people. It is a big blessing to be able to travel 6,000 miles away and to touch people’s lives with the love and power of God. Read the rest of this entry »
