By the time you read this, I will be somewhere at this fine facility:
The Bristol Motor Speedway. Why am I there? The Well goes twice each year, in March and August, to work at the Nascar races as a fundraiser. So many things I could say about Bristol...But one thing that is interesting about Nascar is that the fans are from one end of the spectrum to the other. In the suites, where we work, the ladies are in heels, designer jeans, and wearing too much make up and perfume, and the men are channeling their inner frat boy. But then you step outside to general seating and it's a whole other story. Men and women alike are in camo, cut-off jeans and sporting mullets. It is quite a sight.
And tomorrow is just the start of a busy few weeks for us. Here's the line-up...
Wednesday the 22: Bristol
Thursday the 23: Helping with freshman move-in at ETSU in the morning, and
going to Milligan to pass out brochures in the afternoon.
Friday the 24: Bristol; but I won't be going because there's an event for freshmen that I'll be at with a few other students.
Saturday the 25: Bristol
Sunday the 26: Ministry Team Cook Out
Monday the 27: Ice Cream Giveaway on campus all morning, and the Back to
School Bash in the evening.
Tuesday the 28: Prayer for the start of the semester at the church that evening.
Wednesday the 29: Event on campus in the morning, and the first Well service
of the year that night!
Friday the 31 - Sunday the 2: Ministry Team Retreat
Monday the 3: First Class '16 event of the semester
So needless to say, I'm going to be a little preoccupied and sleep deprived for a while, but hopefully I can touch base a few times before September!
