Come&Live! Artist Tour Report: Sobre Todo Nombre in Norway

Sobre Todo Nombre recently returned from a short tour in Norway, where they played gigs in two different clubs in Kristiansand and Oslo. The last time they played in the country, they were told that unless they refrained from preaching the Gospel, they wouldn't be able to play again in a local venue in Kristiansand - yet somehow they were invited back again.

Their show in Oslo was at a well-known club, managed by the drummer of the band Extol. Joani Gomez, STN's frontman, shared a clear Gospel message from stage, explaining that the only way to change this broken world is through love - but not a love that comes from our own strength or from emotions that eventually fade away. He spoke of the one love that gives us true hope - Jesus Christ - who forgives, restores and gives purpose to our lives, no matter who we are or what we've done. Extol’s drummer was really happy that they had shared the Truth from the stage. He commented that he often books Christian bands to play the venue, but that Sobre Todo Nombre was the first one to ever preach the Gospel during their show.

Joani explains: I had a great conversation with the bartender at the club in Oslo. Like so many in Norway, he considered himself a Christian by tradition, but he said the message I shared had impacted him in a supernatural way, changing his mindset about how he was living his life. We had the opportunity to pray together that God would bring about a radical change in him, and he said something new had been ignited in his heart after our show.

Next month, STN will be out on tour again, playing two shows in the Czech Republic and one in Slovakia.

    I read about a ten-year-old boy whose house had caught fire. He realized that his brother and sister were still inside, so he risked his life and ran back into the burning house to try to save them.

    When the firemen finally put the blazing fire out, they found this ten-year-old boy with his brother and sister in his arms, in the corner of one of the rooms. All three of them perished in the fire, but he had risked his life because he wanted to save his brother and sister. He’d had to act no matter what the cost.
