... the 8:30 am choir practice early to present cards and gifts of appreciation from everyone to the choir director, his wife, and the choir pianist. Some of the choir members were absent, but the director was anxious to begin, so I just went ahead. Then back to our room to freshen up for morning services. The choir sang "Faithful Servant" for special music, and we had excellent messages from David Hadley and Frank Dunkle. The first message was ...

... large, but it was good. It was an Asian-type salad with chicken, blue cheese, crunchy noodles, lettuce, and cranberries. Delicious!
We tried to go to bed soon after that, because we would have to be up really early the next morning, in order to make a planned excursion, and arrive for the the 2pm choir practice in Cincinnati. I didn't sleep that well because I was restless and the room temperature was too warm, but the bed was very comfortable.
