A Pandemic Playlist

7.2 joleen

Editor’s Note: Lay Missioner Joleen Johnson shares a playlist of compiled songs that have helped the FMS community throughout this past year of pandemic. 

To mix it up a little bit, I chose to use more music instead of words for this blog. I’ve asked current FMS Missioners and community members to share a song that has been significant to them over the past year of the Covid-19 Pandemic, encouraged them, or simply been a song that they like. 

I’m thankful that, in asking for many voices and recommendations in this playlist, there is a little bit of everything represented. Perhaps you will find a new song or two to connect with, reflect on or sing along to.

Reflection: Is there a particular song that has gotten you through this past year? How does music impact you?

As spring has sprung, hopefully this playlist of songs also has the power to raise your spirit:

1. “You Are Mine” by Walkers to Heaven 
2. “Oh, Happy Day” by Edwin Hawkins – Anthony Brown w/ FBCG Combined Choir
3. “It is Well” by Kristene DiMarco
5. “How Great Thou Art” by George Nooks
6. “Give Thanks + Always There for Me” by George Nooks
7.“You Got It” by Roy Orbison
8. “Poco a Poco” by Brother Isaiah
9. “We’re Gonna be Alright” by Switchfoot

Joleen discovered her passion for overseas service during her first mission trip in 2012 to Guatemala. Since then she has served in Haiti and studied abroad in India, teaching English in an elementary school, after which she began to feel the call to longer term overseas service. Joleen is excited to see what God will teach her through FMS, and looks forward to living out His call for her. She is inspired by FMS’s humble and relational approach to ministry.
