Today started early for us since the pastor asked us help prepare for the joint service today. We started setting up tables and unloading grills at 7:00 and continued from there. There were tables to wash, table covers, tents to set up, many chairs to take to the tents, assistance in the kitchen, bathrooms to clean and meeting many nice people. Before we knew it it was time for the service.
The choir and pastor from Preserve Life Church, across the street, led the service today. It was a lively, spirit filled, Palm Sunday service. It did our hearts good to see the two neighboring churches worshiping together. After the service we all had dinner together. It was wonderful. Some of the men of the Preserve Life Church grilled chicken and sausage and then there were all the traditional sides plus some not so traditional (at least for Alabama) sides and they were all wonderful. We ran out of room on the dessert table there were so many. We couldn’t begin to try them all but what we had was wonderful.
After dinner the NOMADS stayed to help clean up and then it was nap time. Tonight we found the church left us a lot of food in the refrigerator for us to enjoy this week. Yep, it’s a 5-10 pound project.
We had team meeting at 6:00 tonight and got to know our new team members a little better. There was so much laughing. Sometimes we wonder if there is a serious bone in any of us. Sure is good to really laugh. Have a good week.
