When I was 22, I took our Edmonton Hispanic Mennonite
church’s youth group to Medicine Hat for a youth event.
There, during a totally un-prophetic exercise (a cheesy ‘name
the friend that makes you feel special’ type of thing!), the
leader of the Red Deer group stood and announced that
the Lord was calling me into songwriting, and that I was free
to take up my pencil and paper, and write for Him. No one
knew what to think. I was in wonder. My first song followed; a simple setting of the Lord’s Prayer in
Spanish. I continued to write.
When I wrote ‘Lead On’ in 2008, I knew something had changed. The ‘training period’ was ending. A
year later, during a sermon, I saw myself in my mind just opening my hand and releasing my music
from earthly desires, namely selfishness and fame. I produced my first album in 2015.
During a choir tour in the Philippines where my songs were featured, I connected with several
missionaries; through them, doors to the Middle East opened. Amazingly, my music is now followed
by hundreds of Muslims on Facebook. ‘Hope’s Creed,’ a newly-formed worship collective which
includes FAC’s David Klob and Jessie Moore, just released the album ‘Here I Am,’ with lyric videos
in English and Arabic. ‘Samaritan Road – I Believe,’ written for FAC, will go to radio in June. God’s
timing is marvelous – the release coincided with the beginning of Ramadan, a time of spiritual
seeking. I am excited to see what God has in store, and would appreciate your prayers!
- Jayne Luy, Artist in Residence
Pick up ‘Here I Am’ in Cornerstone Marketplace (right here at FAC), or online (iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify).
