Kay began packing earlier in the week and had everything ready to go by Friday, while I delayed packing until yesterday, Saturday, the day before we were to leave for Little Rock. We both packed rather conservatively, getting everything into two relatively small suitcases plus our carry-ons. People who had traveled to this part of the world told us to dress very casually and not take too many clothes.
We attended both the Cross Roads service and the traditional service this morning, singing in both, and Kay sang the special during communion. We opted for lunch at KFC, then drove home to finish preparations for leaving. We left the house shortly after 2 PM, driving south to Little Rock. At Cabot US Highway 67/167 was closed because of high water. We finally made it to the hotel in Little Rock about 5:30 PM, where we plan to leave the car during the duration of our trip.
