On Sunday, May 15th, at about 11:45 am, we set out for a public performance at a school in Lowville . The Rollinsons and Jason accompanied us so we all piled into the twelve passenger van, reminiscent of Peru where we also took a few trips with lots of people in one van. Jason came to be our sound and lighting technician. It was just under two hours away so we prepared for a mini road trip.
We were early arriving so the doors were still locked. We decided to go look for somewhere to use the restroom. We stopped at a gas station and thought it would be funny if we all got out and found that there wasn’t a bathroom to use. That’s just what happened. So we all piled back in the van and headed for the nearest. After that we headed back to the school and started setting up.
Sarah had fun playing with one of the pastor’s little sons after setting up the costumes and props. At one point the pastor went looking for his son so we told him to look for Sarah. They had fun drawing on the chalk board together.
Aside from a few sound difficulties, the performance went pretty well. At one point, when the sound wasn’t working well, Ashley asked one of us to quiz the kids on what pointe shoes are made of. Sarah stepped up and did a really good job. We were able to use the backdrop which was exciting. Mr. Rollinson was able to share a little with the audience at which time some raised their hands to accept Christ!
They were so nice and had dinner for us! It was the perfect dinner for after a performance too: sandwiches, fruit, veggies, and brownies. The pastor and his family ate with us and Jason had fun playing with the boys.
