Lauren's Guitar Fund

From Lauren R Robles

A little background... Once upon a time, I was serving at a church and had my fairly new Taylor 410ce L7 guitar stored in the closet on the stage.

One of our youth set the guitar, in its case, out of the closet to make room to remove other equipment and incidentally knocked the guitar over.The guitar case was standing upright and the way Taylor cases are made, the headstock "floats" in the case.

With such a jarring movement, a small crack was formed in the neck of the guitar. (It should be noted that I now use a different style of case that overcomes this problem.) Over the next four years, the crack continued to grow. Until one day, during an ordinary string change the headstock became completely separated from the neck of the guitar.At this time, a friend repaired the guitar for me. This repair ocurred approximately four years ago and has reached the end of its age (as shown in photo at top).The proper repair for this guitar is to replace the neck, however with this particular guitar the cost of repair nearly exceeds the cost of replacement (not to mention down time for repair).Why it matters...Last year, I traded my guitar in for a computer and took on a new role as a Director of Communication. It has been a great season, which has afforded me the freedom to recover from some very real burnout. However, God's call is irrevocable and it is time once again for me to live into my giftedness in leading worship. Harvest United Methodist Church has given me the priviledge of serving as the worship leader for their second campus that is opening this fall.In order to confidently make that happen, I have determined that the best course of action is to replace my guitar. I am picking up side jobs and doing everything I can right now to make this happen, but unfortunately time is not on my side. Our first pre-launch service is just a few weeks away. If you are able to be a part of funding this need - that would be amazing! Every little bit helps.
