Church Interviews

First off, I would like to say that the people of Macedonia Baptist Church went above and beyond any expectations I had about how the interviews would be. They had donuts and coffee ready for us just in case we came hungry, and we did. As far as the interviews went, they were extremely open and willing to answer any questions we had, as long as they knew the answer to them. The first lady we interviewed was Ella (I forgot her last name). She was 75 years old, however, I would like to note that she did not look a day over 50. She was extremely energetic, kind, and more than willing to talk, there was never a dull moment with her. She was the perfect interviewee. She even offered Megan and I some of her wisdom, “God gave you brains, USE THEM!” 

The next interviewee, was Ms. Thornton and she was 85 years old. This lady was extremely intelligent. She had this book with pictures and facts about the 130 year history of Macedonia. What’s even more interesting about this is that she put this book together herself. She knew everything in the book and was able to give great detail about the different people and facts that were listed. Also, Ms. Thornton was able to recall what life was like for her in Georgetown even if it was more than 60 years ago. This lady was a walking history book, she is phenomenal. 

After both interviews flew by, even though each one was an hour and a half long, Sam, Megan, and I reflected on what we thought we accomplished in the interviews. We were very pleased. Even though there were some questions that we couldn’t find the right context to ask or some that were not fully answered, we still got great conversation and left with a lot more knowledge than we had prior to the interview.
