Good morning from Rome (for the last time on the trip). We’re about to board the buses, so as I get ready I will update you on what happened yesterday.
There’s not really a whole lot to write about yesterday, as it was a day of rehearsals, free time at the hotel, and then the big gala concert last night. Let’s just put it this way: we had an enormous crowd in the beautiful Chiesa di Sant’Ignazio di Loyola, and every single one of those audience members had truly “been to church” by the end of the night. The girls were fantastic in their solo set, bringing down the house with “Music Down In My Soul”, and the combined numbers got everyone fired up and walking through Jerusalem with us by the end. What an experience! I’ll be sure to share some pictures tonight when I have a little more time, as the venue was ornately decorated with an AMAZING ceiling (but not quite like the Sistine Chapel).
Today we head north. Speaking of which, I’d better shower and get packed before I get left behind…
Until later, arrivederci Roma!
