News from KYC while on tour.

Day 3

with one comment

Monday, August 5 – Caleb, Sherilyn, and Kendra


Quite positive. That’s how I’d describe tour thus far on its inaugural bus day. Tour members have a friendly and uncomplaining spirit. Our bus driver, John Rusk, is capable, professional, and personable. John (director, not driver) led hash time for our Saturday and Sunday programs, and we had lots of favorable comments and perspectives. The church where we’re giving our program tonight is VERY nice (albeit a tad warm in this humid, nearly triple-digit weather), and we’ve had a relaxing afternoon of solitude in its various nooks and crannies.


A few firsts for this evening’s program—we sang all the songs instead of just a selection, it was our first Mennonite church program, and we used our mixed arrangement instead of singing with our parts clustered together. It went quite well, all things considered. We had a lot of time to warm up, which helped us focus and feel more prepared. Our body temperatures also warmed up while we stood and gave the program. Whew! The AC in the church was not, shall we say, running at full speed. I (Sherilyn) held my arms out a bit from my sides and tried swinging them surreptitiously so as to gain a little bit of wind speed.

We experienced good hospitality from the people in Perkins, with our hosts feeding us bedtime snacks before we fell into bed for a brief respite until our alarms went off around 5:30 a.m.
