We're fully in the throes of summer and while the acoustical talents of the cicadas seem to be the summer's main soundtrack, the Royal Pines Center of the Jimmie Hale Mission was treated to more praise-worthy sounds by students on their summer break.
The Six10 Singers recently visited the Royal Pines Recovery Center as part of their itinerary to perform contemporary, Christian songs, powerful skits and use their talents to help teach others about Jesus Christ.

the men at Royal Pines
The choir group is composed of 7th to 12th grade students from churches located in Houston, Texas. The students take advantage of their summer break from school to connect others with God. And that was certainly the case as the students deeply inspired those currently staying at the Royal Pines Recovery Center.
Many of the men at the Jimmie Hale Mission's Blount County facility were moved by the performances. Men like Keith, who said he felt blessed and that "to see a group of young people who love God and takes their time to minister to people [while] on their vacation is encouraging." And Justin, who said he felt blessed as well, and "felt the Spirit of the Lord in a powerful way."

We are so appreciative of this group taking the time and effort to share their love of God with us. Thanks to all the staff and students of West University Baptist Church and Crosspoint Church for their fellowship!
