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.

    Ugh! A conflict rose and I’m now unable to attend this weekend with my SSMT Siestas. It’s been a joy traveling this memorization journey in the Word, and I’ll be cheering everyone on to finish strong for Him. Blessings!

I didn’t get to come to the memory challenge event this time. I think I posted all my verses on this blog but I did post them all on a blog I made just for memory verses. Thank you for this idea. I love doing this.

    I’m a little late in posting this…but I was with you all in spirit last weekend.

    Sabrina Starnes
    Morristown, Tennessee
    At the beginning of 2011 I had all intentions of coming to Houston. As the time got closer, I wasn’t able to afford the airfare for the trip. But I did memorize all 24 verses and had a blast getting my mind renewed. All my verses were based on HOPE and it was a blessed year of having my hope in Christ renewed as well. Looking forward to this summer’s Siesta Bible study.

    Deanna Lelli says:

    Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
