"Taking Texas by Song" started off with a bang, and also some heavy rain yesterday morning. By 6 am, all youth participants and sponsors had arrived, check-in had begun and the buses were ready to be packed to the fullest with sleep gear and belongings. After a hearty breakfast and a send-off by the elders, we were off on our 11 day adventure to bring a musical to and share fellowship with churches across Texas and Arkansas. For lunch, we stopped at the Big Texan restaurant for lunch, home to the 72 lb steak challenge, where we were fortunate enough to witness a man all the way from Switzerland try to attempt the feat. When we all arrived at the First Christian Church of Amarillo, the buses were promptly unpacked and the setup for our first performance began. Without a doubt, our first performance didn't fail to entertain the audience, who were welcoming and so glad to have us stay at their church! The night ended with a celebratory dinner for the success of our first performance, and we all went to sleep, to prepare for the next day of travel and "Yes I Believe."
