Day 1 Choir Tour

Kick off at DGFUMC with introduction of bus driver Jeff, goodbyes to family and blessing of the tour by Katie Kiss.  All the luggage, equipment and food were packed on the bus for departure at 6 AM.  We toured Southern Illinois University campus upon arrival in Carbondale.  Dinner was provided by members of the Carbondale United Methodist Church.  They served the world’s best smoked barbeque baked beans, pulled pork, salad and many fresh vegetables.  Red velvet cake and brownies were served to celebrate birthdays for Kelsey, Leah, Luke and Rebecca.  Then we left with our host families and had a great time. I know from my first experience that the families were fantastic.  I slept well and woke up to eggs and bacon.  It doesn’t get much better than that.  The church showed us great hospitality and we all are truly grateful to be a part of their service this morning.
