Irish worship team Rend Collective met with a setback while recording their new album. Apparently, their studio was broken in and a laptob containing their new songs and a month's worth of work of recording have been stolen. The band asked fans to pray for them. "We share this to ask for prayer as we sit down to rework and record these songs. Please pray that God's presence would fall and he would provide the strength we need to finish up this album. Thank you for being family and church to us."
The popular folk-worship group went on to add on twitter, "Thank you all for the overwhelming support & prayers after our equipment was stolen. Don't worry no one is gonna stop this album coming out!"
