Somebody very special is having a birthday today! Chuck Harris. It almost seems strange not to be celebrating his birthday on tour in Asia, because for many years, for some reason the way we booked the tours, we were always in Asia on his birthday.
Those of you who have attended one of my concerts in the last 20+ years will know Chuck as my sound engineer. He has been with me through thick and thin, and if we got started telling stories about life on the road, we’d be here a long time. Oh, I wish I had the time to tell you a few. It makes me laugh just to think about them….like unbuckling his seat belt while we’re being driven at crazy speeds through crazy traffic on the way to a concert somewhere. (That’s one of my favorites) Or the time when we had just arrived back in the USA from a tour in Africa after flying all night, we got on the airport train in Atlanta to transfer to our gate and as the train started moving, Chuck fell down right at the feet of a lady who stared down at him, not amused, and lying on the floor of the train looking up at her, Chuck sheepishly said, “Excuse me.” The lady never asked if he was OK, but she just stood there looking perturbed. I’m laughing so hard right now just thinking about it!
Yes, I’ve had many good laughs at Chuck’s expense. Someone said, “A good friend knows all your best stories, but a best friend has lived them with you,” and Chuck certainly has lived those stories with me all over the world. He is a true friend, which is a rare thing to find these days. I am so grateful for his friendship and honored to have partnered with him in ministry for over 20 years. Happy Birthday Chuck! May the Lord continue to bless you, give you good health, and many more years for us to serve Him together! Please help me wish Chuck a happy birthday, and when we’re back on the road, and you see him back at the mixing console in the middle of the crowd, ask him to tell you a funny Don Moen tour story. He’s got a lot of them!
