“One Drop at a Time” Benefit Concert at the Lighthouse Cafe’

 

The Lighthouse-Coffee House and Christian Concert VenueClarksville, TN – On Saturday, August 18th, 2012 there will be a benefit concert “One Drop at a Time” at the Lighthouse Cafe’ in Clarksville starting at 6:30pm. The concert will feature Jenny and Tyler with Lydia Walker.

The concert is free however, donations will be accepted to help raise money for Ryan and Jeri Lynn Owen to adopt two girls from the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Ryan, a soldier stationed at Fort Campbell, and his wife, Jeri Lynn Owen answered the call to adopt two girls from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Currently, there are approximately 167 million orphans in the world. The DRC is named as one of the most dangerous places on the planet to be a woman.

Desiring to live out the words of God written in James 1:27 “Religion that is pure and undefiled is this… to care for the orphans and the widows,” they began their  journey on April 21st, 2012. They have three sons, Taylor, Kole and Riley. The adoption has moved much faster than they had originally thought. The family hopes that their girls, Ava and Zoey, will be home before Christmas.

The total cost to adopt is $47,000.00. Though they know that the total is daunting, they also know that a glass of water can be filled ‘One Drop at a Time’.

In effort to help the family raise funds for the adoption, Jenny & Tyler along with Lydia Walker will be performing at the Lighthouse Cafe’ in Clarksville, TN off of Riverside Drive.  Jenny & Tyler are a husband/wife folk duo, from Nashville, TN, and Lydia Walker is a folk singer/songwriter from Clarksville, TN.  Entrance to the concert will be free, however donations will be accepted at the concert.  Food and beverages will be available for purchase from the Lighthouse Cafe’. Doors will open at 6:00pm!
