Ryan and I were recommended to do the ringing, and it was a blessing to us. We were not expecting it to go so quickly (we had two hours to do ring the bell), but we made it fun for each other, singing, drumming on the buckets, and doing tricks with the bells. haha. I think we were the youngest pair of ringers in all of Storm Lake though (normally, its elderly men and women), and we had a couple comments about how young we were to be ringing. haha. We were greatly blessed to greet so many families and people in Storm lake with a "MERRY CHRISTMAS," and see so many people giving of themselves.
