“The range of emotions went from tears of sadness as we bade our friend Don Gwinn farewell until we meet again to feelings of joy as we worshiped Sabbath morning, and finally to tears of gratefulness and thanksgiving to God for bringing His Voice together as men to sing His love and hear His voice culminating with a statement of who we are and why we exist,

“Loving God, loving each other.
Making music with my friends.”

A word from the Director of His Voice…

October 6, 2015

Dear Men and Friends of His Voice,

Now that I have had a day of rest from the events of this past weekend, I am amazed at how God brought everything together for His honor and glory.  The range of emotions went from tears of sadness as we bade our friend Don Gwinn farewell until we meet again, to feelings of joy as we worshiped Sabbath morning, and finally to tears of gratefulness and thanksgiving to God for bringing His Voice together as men to sing His love and hear His voice culminating with a statement of who we are and why we exist,

“Loving God, loving each other.
Making music with my friends.”

Often, one forgets to recognize people who were instrumental in making this 10th Anniversary Reunion on October 3rd at Azure Hills Seventh-day Adventist Church a success.  This happens in the stresses and strains of putting together an event such as this.  So I’m going to attempt to remember everyone who had a part:

I would like to thank the members of His Voice Board who guided the planning process right until the end.  Then to the members of the 10th Anniversary Committee, Sherman Jefferson, Bob Ferguson, Ron Harrison, and Debbie Naluai who put their heads together to plan this momentous occasion.  To members of our marketing team, Don & Nancy Troyer and Gary Kerstetter who did a phenomenal job with posters, flyers, and news clips to announce the celebration.

Then there were individuals and families that really helped to make the final product a success.  Ron Harrison and Bob Ferguson who were in charge of getting the video personnel who taped the celebration.  It was their persistence in the midst of adversity when LLBN gave us a bid that was way out of our budget to make this happen.  Can you imagine what it took to have a six camera shoot of our celebration and to plan and execute all of this from long distance within a month of the occasion?  Only God working through these men could have made this happen.  Then there’s Buzz Starrett whose audio expertise bridged the gap with the Azure Hills audio team to make it work for the final audio/visual product.

There’s nothing like getting the whole family involved in a His Voice project.  Bob, Ethel, Erwin and Kevin Ferguson contributed by taking some of the pictures used in the power point presentation, creating the power point presentation and operating  the boom camera.  Rad, Natalie, David and Nancy Krkljus contributed by setting up our CD booths, providing us with stage direction, photography, bulletin layout and printing.  Of course we can’t forgetAlva Waworoendeng and her team of musicians that made the orchestrated songs come to life.

There are no words to describe Jerry Albritton’s contribution to His Voice.  I can’t imagine the frustration he must go through as he battles through the debilitating nature of Parkinson’s disease to play the piano.  I am grateful for my wife Debbie Naluai and her team who for 46 years has organized the receptions after every program that I have ever done that completes the occasion by providing community.

Finally, I am grateful to all of the men of His Voice past and present who for years have committed their time and energy to this wonderful ministry.  My apologies if I failed to recognize anyone who made a contribution to this celebration.  The older you get the more senior moments you have.

Thank you so much for the expression of your love demonstrated in the beautiful flowers.  I have been blessed to be your director.  May God continue to bless this ministry in the coming years.

In God’s Service, Mike

Michael Naluai,
His Voice Director

A “Miracle” is a word that best describes this CD. His Voice Men’s Chorus is made up of men whose primary goal is to minister; First, to one another and second to those who would allow us to sing for them. There is no audition process. “You’re in”, if you can breath. This is why […]
