Hope Singers 2016 Tour – August 4
Behold, on the 4th day of the 8th month of the year of our Lord 2016, Hope Singers had the day off! Since our first appointment was brunch at 10:30, we thoroughly enjoyed sleeping in. The rest of the forenoon and most of the afternoon was spent in critiquing a recording of a previous program, music practice, games of KanJam, Spikeball, and soccer interspersed with rain shower.
According to our schedule the day was mainly set aside for doing laundry but we are VERY spoiled singers! Marlin and Jagoda kindly took all our laundry to the Laundromat while we spent the day relaxing. J We truly are spoiled! We did some rehearsing from 4-5:30, then were treated to another delicious Polish meal. Directly afterward we rehearsed a little more, had devotions with Lloyd, played games, ect. We even celebrated Dave Gingerich’s 65th birthday (which is next week) with German chocolate cake, strawberries and shortcake, and giant sparklers.
The evening was made complete with bedtime stories by Dave and even his song about “Ticklish Reuben”. There were many gales of laughter…

Random facts for you to enjoy:
- The average age of the choir is….25!
- When we sing our song “Alleluia”, all 29 of us have sung over 2,600 “Alleluias” by the time we have reached the end. (Thanks to Jonathan Miller and Dave Gingerich for doing all the counting)
