The National Quartet Convention 2001

Donna and I traveled to Louisville, KY for the 2001 National Quartet Convention. This most popular Southern Gospel spectacular was held September 10-15 at the Kentucky Fair & Expo Center in Louisville. This year's event was different due to the horrendous attack in NY and Washington on 9/11/2001, but the Southern Gospel family proved to have the strength and assurance of the Holy Spirit with them as they prayed and celebrated Jesus in a powerful way all week long. The messages in song were powerful and the testimonies of group members seemed to bond everyone involved into one unit! Donna and I are sharing some of our pictures and highlights of this year's NQC with you here.
