SSMT Roll Call

Siestas! We are less than two weeks away from our Siesta Scripture Memory Team Celebration! In case you realized how much of a mouth full that is, that is why we lovingly refer to it as the SSMTC around here. Grin.

With Christmas, New Years and Passion 2012 behind us, we are looking very forward to the celebration, especially because of how quick it will land on us. Sometime during the next week be looking for a fun FAQ post about the weather, food and all things regarding Houston, but until then, we want to hear from you.

We are anxious to know who completed the scripture memory challenge on this blog EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT GETTING TO COME TO THE CELEBRATION. That just means that you have your spiral filled with 20-24 scriptures, posted your verses on the blog, and have hidden the Word in your heart, we want to know who you are.

If this applies to you (and you completed the commitment), we’d love for you to comment and tell us three things:

1) Name:
2) City:
3) Are you coming to the celebration? Yes or No. (Because we want to acknowledge and celebrate you either way!)

Remember, this is for anyone who completed the 2011 scripture memory challenge! When we say there is NO condemnation for those who didn’t finish please hear us loud and clear: there is no condemnation or guilt! We just love a good party here at LPM and want to celebrate with you.

So, even if you have no plans to come to the celebration, but have completed your memory work, let us hear from you!

We love y’all dearly. T-minus 11 days. We cannot wait!

P.S. Some of you have been looking for the SSMT FAQ page, here is the link to help you out.

    YES!!! I learned my verses

    My plane ticket was purchased, my babysitters arranged and I was pumped about the Siesta Celebration…but my mother-in-law had to schedule an unforseen surgery for the Monday after I would return and that would require me to miss too much work and be away from my babies longer than either one of us could stand… so with much sadness I am not going to be there!! Maybe next time…

    Yes I have 24 verses written in my spiral. It’s my plan to attend but maybe I shouldn’t. I’m really bad at memorizing so I don’t know how many I’ll be able to recall at the SSMTC. What I loved most was seeing what verse the Lord brought to me when the 1st and 15th rolled around. 2010 was a great journey.

    I finished all my siesta verses! Can’t wait to get started on 2012! I won’t be able to come to the celebration this year, but I know it will be awesome!

    Thanks so much for providing this way of memorizing scripture together as a community of believers!

    Not attending, but so thankful that I have 24 amazing, relevant, timeless, powerful, PERSONAL verses in my head and heart! The “requirement” to post a blog comment twice a month was a great motivator. Thank you Beth, and thanks to everyone else who participated!

    I have made plans to go to the Celebration, but an unexpected illness in the family may cause me to have to cancel. I’ve loved memorizing my verses this year so much. Thank you, Beth. I’ve loved it so much that I started a blog for a few of my friends and me to assist in memorizing more this year. I do hope to see you all in few days!

    I am from Mauldin SC and will be attending the confernce in Houston compliments of my sweet friend. She and I have been memorizing and posting the verses this past year. For Christmas her husband gave her the trip to Houston and they have invited me and my husband to go with them. While we are at the conference our husbands will be “seeing Houston”. I am so looking forward to this time!!!

    I did complete my Siesta’s memory verses. This was so powerful and awesome and even though I can’t come to the celebration in person, I feel that having all these verses hidden in my heart is reason to celebrate and be glad!
