My friend Andrew Peterson’s song was used this morning to wake up the astronauts on the International Space Station.  Very cool!  Here’s the story according to NASA.

STS-128 MCC Status Report #18

HOUSTON – The astronauts aboard the International Space Station and space shuttle Discovery turn their focus to final packing today. After nearly seven days of busy joint activities and three spacewalks, the shuttle crew will also get a half-day off.

The crew awoke at 10:35 a.m. to “Rocket” performed by Andrew Peterson. The song was played for Mission Specialist Pat Forrester.

    It’s a small world … universe Arron 🙂
    Who would have ever thought Andrew would be making a wake up call in space for a crew member (M. Barratt) Mandy and I know personally from church family here in Texas. I mean, this brings a whole new meaning to “more than you could ever imagine” Eph 3:20. God really does bless His servants who bless His name.
