We’re heading back to Wichita later today. We have to be out of the church by noon so a couple from Barclay College and their families can get ready for a wedding on Saturday. The rehearsal dinner is here tonight.
Someone said they heard there were 10 weddings involving Barclay students at the church this summer. Pretty busy for a small town.
When we return on Sunday evening, we’ll be a little more cramped than we were this week. We’ll be sharing the basement with 30-some volunteers from Texas.
When we were leaving the Barclay gymnasium after taking showers around 9:30 last night, we ran into two Barclay students who were coming to play volleyball. One is a graduate from Sunrise Christian Academy in Bel Aire. The other is from Miami, Okla.
Except for the first day, when we had to find someone to unlock the gym, the shower arrangements have worked well. The gym is about four blocks from the church, but it’s handy and open most all hours. Only a couple of us have had to dash back to the church because we forgot to take a towel.
The showers are clean, which is a requirement for most of those in our group. Obviously, those people haven’t camped out much. I was happy to plenty of hot water.
