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), weโ€™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 didnโ€™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 yโ€™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.

    Chyrll Vollmer says:

    Sadly, will not be able to make it this year. Y’all have a blessed blast!!

    Beth, this is for you (in reference to being a “mystic” if God speaks to you):
    “May integrity and uprightness preserve me, for I wait forย You” (Psalm 25:21 ESV)
    Truth Incarnate, as Beth grows in her expectant trust of You, may the twin virtues of integrity and uprightness be as grace against grace. When the scornful rise up to assail Your holy name, may the testimony of her words and walk put them to shame. May her integrity be a sweet savor unto You and an effective witness to the lost. Amen.

    I didn’t finish all 24 verses but I did make it to 19. I won’t make excuses for myself but my family had a serious scare with my brother. He ended up at the National Institute of Health and had 1/3 of his lung removed. Needless to say I was a basketcase. I grew more in my faith and trust in God than EVER in my life. God really helped me and continues to help me with so many fears that I struggle with.
    Thank you for encouraging scripture memory!

    Looking forward to the conference. I had a scripture I tried to memorize for at least two years and couldn’t do it but amazingly I did it in 2011 along with 23 more. Totally blessed by the experience. Many thanks to you and your team for your prayers of encouragement.

    I am not able to attend the celebration in Houston this year. Maybe next time, if this kind of event is held again next year! I loved posting each of the memory verses from my spiral bound collection this past year, and will return to working on fully committing each of the verses to memory. At this point I cannot accurately quote all of them, but it is a goal!

    Thank you for the inspiration to memorize scripture and the wonderful sisterhood of doing it together. Have a great celebration. I hope we will be continuing to memorize scripture together in 2012. God bless you all and your wonderful ministry.

    I finished 20 verses/passages! I appreciate the motivation to hold Scripture in my heart for God’s use and purpose.
    Not coming to the celebration ๐Ÿ™

    Are we doing Scripture memory for 2012? Have I missed something?

    Corbin, Ky

    Yes I finished!! I challenged my Mom and I last Christmas to do it together in the new year. I gave her the spiral for Christmas and even though we live in different states we talked on the phone and emailed each other the verses and worked together on it! We even went to Deeper Still in Louisville together and practiced while we were waiting in line together! HeeHee God had a plan for this before I even knew about it. My husband is a minister and not only did his position get eliminated this year but we sold our house, moved, and started at a new church all this past year. I really needed to hide scripture in my heart while we were going through all of that!!
    We won’t be able to go to the celebration this year but I was wondering if you could do a live stream like the passion conference did so we could watch on-line? Thanks

    Will not be attending ๐Ÿ™ But pray for all of you! and am so thankful for another twenty four Scripture verses in my mind & heart! Actually, I am memorizing the Book of James, so I will continue in 2012. Love & blessings to all! I was at the celebration in 2010…

    Maureen says:

    Maureen Chabot, St. Clair Shores and Yes, I have posted and memorized all 24 scriptures and give our AMAZING GOD all the credit!! In fact, I’ve decided I don’t want to stop and have turned my spiral around and begun with my first verse for 2012. He just will not let me stop…and I’m glad!!

    Really wish I could come to the celebration but as I am knee deep in work and coming up on a 1/23 audit…there isn’t any way I could swing it. I’ll be praying for a heavenly party celebrating you Beth and all who have learned even ONE verse this past year!!

    3) Yes, I finished and I was planning on attending until my dad passed away unexpectedly on 1/1/12 (My dear friend had even used her frequent flyer miles to get us airline tickets). Now I need to be with my mom and grandmother. Guess those memory verses are coming in handy right now.
