Last night I was blessed enough to be part of the Compassion UK team at one of the stops on the Philippa Hanna coffee shop tour.


I have to tell you it was awesome. The evening was started by a local lad with incredible talent Jacob Lloyd. Such a fun cheeky lad with a great voice.


I then got my first experience of the artist called Roo Walker, never had I witnessed such guitar playing.  Also the insane way he used a loop with amazing results left me laughing out loud. Roo is a seriously funny, insane (yes i said it twice) guy who I adored.


Then of course was Philippa Hanna, I am new to Philippa’s music. I was swept away about two months ago by her song I am amazing. Its a song that just reminds us how perfect we are because we are Gods creation and that  God doesn’t make mistakes.


I was so excited to hear more from Philippa and I wasn’t disappointed. Her songs are written from her heart, they are her journey. So many of her lyrics spoke to my heart. I’ve been there judging myself, feeling lost inside myself. Philippa’s songs reminds us  that we are never alone, God is with us always.


One amazing voice, one beautiful lady.


Of course the best bit of the evening was working on behalf of Compassion UK and being part of the journey into child sponsorship for people. Introducing them to the child they have chosen getting to tell them that because of their sponsorship they had just changed a child’s life. Through their sponsorship their chosen child will receive, food, clean water, medical care, inoculations and the opportunity to be part of their local church and learn of Jesus’ love for all.


How exciting.


I had an phenomenal evening and would suggest to anyone if Philippa and Roo are playing at a coffee shop near you, to go along you wont be disappointed. I took along my two teens and their friends and they had an incredible evening.You wont be disappointed.
