Our Mission
Shirley and Steve Rees

The Bible has been relegated to dry and dusty irrelevancy and/or become a fluid document shifting to meet the current cultural norms.

The collapse of Biblical moral values, the disintegration of the family unit, and the loss of integrity are all products of a society in which the Word of God has ceased being a standard for life.

Harp and Story — The Peregrinnatti, our mission is to bring Scripture to life and relevancy. Music is what feelings sound like. The harp expresses the emotion of the story planting life truths deep in the spirit.

Our prayer is that the truths we express in music and story telling grow and produce much good fruit to the Glory of the Kingdom of YHVH.

15. Colorado, August 1

Prevailing Undercurrent — Lawlessness

Colorado is such a beautiful state. I love the brilliant gold of the aspen trees in the fall and the beautiful flowers of the columbine in spring/summertime. The snow-capped mountains and breath-taking vistas from their heights is the scenery that makes Colorado a premier vacation spot. But sadly, Colorado’s government leadership is not at all operating in righteousness and holiness according to God’s supreme law. This lawlessness in government is reflected in the lawless acts and deeds of people. 
It was so sad to come up to the capitol grounds and see dozens of tents and makeshift shelters lining the streets around the capitol. The capitol grounds are overgrown with weeds and neglect; there are urine stains on the sidewalks, broken windows and shattered glass doors, and foul graffiti were written on sidewalks, pillars, and the capitol building itself. The statue that used to grace the front of the building is gone, replaced with a painting of George Floyd. The message seemed to be, “nobody’s home, don’t even bother knocking because nobody cares.”
There was a sizeable group that gathered to worship, pray, and declare scripture. About an hour into the event some protestors showed up carrying signs that when you read one side it seemed as if they were Christians, but when you read the other side you immediately knew they were anything but believers. They were hanging around the edges scaring away several of those who had gathered to worship with us. Reminded me of Amalek picking off the stragglers of the children of Israel on their journey to the promised land. (Duet 25:17-19)
Soon it was down to Steve, myself, and Howie and Aline of Mishkanim. We moved to the south entrance of the capitol building where we finished our time of worship unmolested. Three men did come and join us. They were workers at one of the downtown missions. What a joy it was to spend time worshipping and praying with these dedicated believers!
As we were leaving a group of black, full-face, masked individuals walked past our little group. One of the men commented, “there goes trouble.” ABBA Yahweh, we pray that the people of the city of Denver and the people of the state of Colorado, “Wake up, and strengthen what remains and is about to die…” (Rev 3:2)

16. Wyoming, August 2

Prevailing Undercurrent — Untamed

We have driven across Wyoming many times and have always been struck by the vast, open expanse of land, where the antelope run and the wind blows, with unfettered abandon. It is a wild and for the most part, untamed land. The people who settled here and made a life for themselves and their families are hardy stock, proud of what they have accomplished. 
The capital of Wyoming is Cheyenne. As we drove around the capitol grounds it was so refreshing to see that everything was orderly and well kept. There were no barriers hastily erected to prevent the destruction of public property, there was no graffiti scribbled on walls, or broken windows or doors; the grass was trimmed and the weeds had been pulled and discarded — Wyoming is open for business!
We set up on the capitol steps and began to worship. It was only a few minutes before the capitol police showed up and asked us what we were doing. He said the officer at the Governor’s mansion who was watching the cameras positioned on the capitol thought we were setting up a camp. We assured him we were only here to worship and pray for his state and we’d be gone in a few hours. He was good with that and said he’d tell the officer at the Governor’s mansion that we weren’t there to do harm. He stayed around for a bit and told us that there had only been one protest and it was peaceful. There had been a couple of kids that did a little mischief, but that was quickly dealt with. Wyoming was such a breath of fresh air after what we had witnessed in Denver! 
But in all the good we experienced we felt Wyoming’s un-named fear is that of becoming tamed — a resistance to change. Scripture from the book of James speaks to this:
James 4:6-8, But he gives more grace. Therefore, it says, “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
James 3:2-10, For we all stumble in many ways. And if anyone does not stumble in what he says, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle his whole body. If we put bits into the mouths of horses so that they obey us, we guide their whole bodies as well. Look at the ships also: though they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are guided by a very small rudder wherever the will of the pilot directs. So also the tongue is a small member, yet it boasts of great things. How great a forest is set ablaze by such a small fire! 
And the tongue is a fire, a world of unrighteousness. The tongue is set among our members, staining the whole body, setting on fire the entire course of life, and set on fire by hell. For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and sea creature, can be tamed and has been tamed by mankind, but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. With it, we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse people who are made in the likeness of God. From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so.
2Cor 3:18, [Let us all] reflect the Lord’s glory with faces that are not covered with veils, [as] we are being changed into his image with ever-increasing glory. This comes from the LORD, who is the Spirit.
