NEWS HOST: This is Jared Allen, reporting for AMNN with your regularly scheduled broadcast. Today we have a member of our broadcasting team who is actually on this trip as a member of the missions team. We now go to Bob on the bus, whom we will call Bob 3 so that no one gets confused. Over to you Bob.
BOB 3: Hiya, Jared. I’m currently packed in a bus with 25 other people, who are sharing seating space that will comfortably accommodate 22 people. Needless to say, I’m cramped.
NEWS HOST: To give people an idea of what it’s like to be a member of the team on this trip, tell us, how does that feel?
BOB 3: Well, I’m a wedgie. How do you think it feels?
NEWS HOST: You’re a wedgie? By my definition, that’s not physically possible.
BOB 3: Jared, the way I see it, if you’re being wedged, those wedging you are the wedgers, making you the wedgie.
NEWS HOST: That… Actually makes sense, in an odd sort of way.
BOB 3: Things are a bit cramped here, but I will say that the team is very close.
NEWS HOST: Is that a joke?
BOB 3: Yes and no. I feel that this year, much like last year, the team is very unified, very together. There is a bond between us that cannot be described, other than the fellowship of siblings in Christ united by a common purpose: to bring Glory to God Almighty.
NEWS HOST: That was Bob on the bus. We’ll now go to Bob 1, our reporter on site, for an update on how everything turned out with the luggage packing last night.
BOB 1: It’s incredible! I still can’t believe it! If hadn’t seen it with my own eyes, I wouldn’t have believed it.
NEWS HOST: What is it, Bob?
BOB 1: They mannaged to get all of those bags into the van! Some of the larger trunks would not fit inside and so Bob 3 climbed on top of the van and strapped the trunks down to the rack with the help of one of the team leaders, Dave Coram.
NEWS HOST: That is very impressive. So, everything went well?
BOB 1: Very well. No complaints, no fights, these people must really have a heart for this work.
NEWS HOST: Thanks for the update, Bob. And that brings us back to our other story and Bob 2. Well, Bob, how goes the investigation?
BOB 2: I’ve interviewed people about the bus ride and discovered something… Very interesting. The first 2 people I spoke to were Dalynn Hatfield and Zach Allen
BOB 2: So, guys, how were the bus rides? I know that the first one was cramped and the second one was very long. What do you think about them?
ZACH: They were both cramped, whatever problems we had just come with the ministry.
DALYNN: It’s what you have to do to get here.
BOB 2: I also had the chance to speak with Wes Yarber while on the bus for one of these trips.
BOB 2: So, Wes. What do you think of these long bus rides? I know how hard it is to get any rest with the constant jostling of the bus and the proximity of luggage and people. What are your opinions?
BOB 2: Very interesting.
NEWS HOST: It’s sounds like you have a bunch of people who don’t care what hardships they face for the goal.
BOB 2: Oh, you don’t get it. They’re fakes! Phoneys. These people don’t care a lick about this, “love thy neighbor” stuff.
NEWS HOST: That is a… Unique opinion there, Bob. Well, this is all very intruiging. And I’m sure we will soon know what it’s all about, however, we’re out of time for today. Thanks for tuning in to AMNN. I’m Jared Allen and we’ll see you next time.
