Well, I found out Sunday that in helping with the ordinance I had been miraculously prepared to participate in I was taking the place of another worker that had come in specifically to do the part I did. When he had been asked if I could take his place he graciously agreed. Come to find out, he left a while after the ordinance started.
His wife had an emergency, I am not sure what, and he needed to go help her. If he had been doing the part I was doing it would have been, first, hard to get a hold of him and, second, it could have cause a bit of distribution and headache in the ordinance not only to switch him out, but to even find someone able to take his place.
