Kansas Youth Chorus

News from KYC while on tour.

Monday, Day 4

Note: This account is starting from Sunday evening, where the previous writer’s left off.

There was a general sense of weariness before the program, but in our prep time Andrew read to us from the psalms and we had group prayer time that was inspiring to many of us. The program in our (Loren and Loyal’s) opinion is that it was cute and mostly cuddly. Ok, so we’re not exactly sure how it was cute, except that God definitely did answer prayers for strength. But it was mostly cuddly because we used the steps at the front of the sanctuary instead of the risers which lent itself to closeness.

Monday morning dawned bright and warm as ever.  Call time was 7:30 in which about half of the chorus members were prompt. It was about an 1.5 hour drive to Fort Wayne where we went to a park and met with those involved in Beacon of Hope (a ministry focused on the Burmese people) and some others. We split into groups and went prayer walking in various Burmese neighborhoods and one group went to a Buddhist temple and talked with a few monks. Another group reported that they talked to a Thai man who pointed out the exact location of a murder a few days ago.

During part of a “get to know each other” activity

We came back and ate lunch including amazing sub sandwiches.

It rained for a while but then fortunately the rain moved on through which allowed us go on as planned with the afternoon activities. We went to a park in a Burmese neighborhood and played games with the children. The children were divided up into different groups and then went around to the eight different stations which included singing, finger painting, corn hole, stringing beads, water balloons, and relay races.

There about 80 children that registered and others that joined in also and so the total number may have been around 100. Each group was given a color, but it was quite a handful at times for the leaders of the groups to keep their group together. And so in a lot of ways it was organized chaos, but we sure had a lot of doing it! At the end then the sneetchy people did their skit for everybody and those in charge handed out a little snack to the children. It was a really fun afternoon and so PTL for the nice weather and lots of children!

And then we loaded up and headed for Goshen, IN. (Ed. note. The loading up happened after a long bathroom break. The bus was parked in a supermarket parking lot, so we traipsed back to the back of the store and waiting in line and talked to the workers back there.)

Another editors note. Feel free to comment. I love reading the comments over the mike on the bus. Its great knowing you are thinking about us. Thanks for your prayers.

  2. Well…I tried to “like” your post here, but I forgot my wordpress info 😦 …., and I don’t think my first attempt went through, so try again. I’m puzzled that your post time says 3:43am and it’s 12:15AM my time. Nevertheless, God CAN work through time changes. Enjoying your daily posts, and variety of writers, and the pics. Keep up the good work and God bless you all for reaching out to spread the Gospel. God speed!!
    OHHHHHHHH,…..maybe this was on Greenwich time maybe???? isn’t that how wordpress recorded times?

  3. Oh yay! I am so gonna comment if it’s gonna get read over the mic on the bus! HI PEOPLE!! I’m kinda sad I’m not there with you all (even tho I’m pretty sure I remember at least half of you when you were in diapers, and that’s kinda weird–no offense to anyone), it sounds like you are having an incredible time. John, they say you’re a great director, I wish I could see you in action! And the rest of you up-there people–Danny, Julian & Bertha, Shane & Dorc, Brian, committee (I don’t know who you are, but I’m sure you’re great)–how could tour NOT be a good experience with you all in charge?? Oh and hi Bill! Glad to hear you are still hauling KYC around–take good care of them! And to all the rest of you, just keep singing and letting God’s love bubble out of you, blessing everyone you meet!
    P.S. Eunie, I’m watching you…don’t do anything I wouldn’t!=P

  4. Hey you guys great program last nite! I really enjoyed it, although my concentration was interrupted at times by the squirming lil guy on my lap:) I am actually jealous of you guys… would be so much fun to get on the bus and go on tour again… So many good memories and warm fuzzies:) Anyway many many blessings to you guys as you keep on. I hope things go smoothly and well for you, but remember that sometimes the rough times or times of tiredness can be when God works the most in you! And one last thing, try to go easy on your tour coordinator Mr. Shane Iwashige, for he is a very old and crusty curmudgeon who needs his sleep at the front of the bus:) Love and blessings….

  6. Hey, way to post pics! I really like that. It looks and sounds like you are having a great time! I am probably, hands down, the most jealous left-behind person, me being a party animal and all. But, hey, I’m glad that tour is going well for you and am praying that that would continue ….. Blessings! ~~Kathy
