2011 Siesta Scripture Memory Team: Verse 18!

[tminus t=”20-01-2012 19:00:00″ style=”carbonite”/] **Siesta Celebration is January 20-21, 2012**

Hey, Scripture Memory Mad-Women!
Look how many verses we have behind us!! Sister friend, if you’ve made it this far, YOU’VE GOT THIS THING IN THE BAG! (Or, in your darling little spiral, to be exact.) We are only two Scriptures away from you having the required amount posted for attending the SSMT celebration. By all means, make your goal all 24 but it’s a great feeling to know that you have ALL.IT.TAKES.TO.CE.LE.BRATE. I do dearly love a party. It won’t be the same if you don’t come so please (if it sounds fun to you) try your hardest. Think about asking for help toward expenses as a Christmas gift from some of your lavishly loving peeps.

Registration will be open until 2 weeks before the event so don’t stress about us running out of room. We only opened it this early so we could choose which space will fit us best at Houston’s First Baptist Church and so we can best prepare to serve you. Since we’re at about 850 registrations, we’ve outgrown the Fellowship Hall where we were last year and will meet in the sanctuary. We’ll make sure that we have the closest possible seating arrangements so no one feels isolated from the group. (There’s no reserved seating for it, of course, but we’ll do everything we can to make it as intimate as possible.) We are looking so forward to seeing your beautiful faces. It will be here before we know it!  Click here to register: SSMT Registration

OK, here’s my Scripture for this round:

Beth, Houston. For what credit is it if you sin and are mistreated and endure it? But if you do good and suffer and so endure, this finds favor with God. 1 Peter 2:20 The NET Bible

Let’s hear yours!

I’m mad about you.

    Hey anyone flying to the SSMT celebration from PHILLY and want a break on airfare?

    I have a companion ticket voucher for 2 people and my friend is using one, so I that means if someone wants to travel our schedule (Fri 1/20/12 leave PHL 10am arrive Houston at 1pm and return Sun 1/22/12 from Houston at 2pm arriving PHL 6:30pm) your airline ticket could be around $200 (it’s $378 on the USAir website) you’d still need to rent a car and get a hotel room, but at least it’s a way to save on airfare if you haven’t purchased it yet and are going anyway…

    I have to buy the ticket by Friday (9/30/11) and I really am not sure how we’d even communicate much less exchange money, but thought it was worth a shot.. we’ll see what God can do! 🙂
