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.

    Is there going to be a Siesta Scripture Memory Team for 2012? I started reading the blog too late last year to officially join and really want to do the memory work here and with a few local friends… even if there’s not a big party at the end… πŸ˜€

    So Sorry we can’t join in the Siesta celebration but celebrating none-the-less! Incredibly blessed by the year of hiding God’s word in my heart along with my 18 year old daughter AND seeing her quote a couple of them on her college apps!
    Also will celebrate locally with a dear siesta in her 60’s who completed this challenge with an A+++ and has been renewed & transformed by the power of His word!

    No, I can’t be there (boohoohoo!!!) but I will be there in spirit! It was an incredible experience memorizing Scripture with the Siestas!! For accountability, I said my Scripture verses to my daughter on New Year’s Day (and, I can’t believe it, I remembered them all! Now that’s something, with my memory!!)I am doing it again this year, even though it’s not an official year!! I can’t wait to see and learn all that the Lord will teach me this year through His Word!

    Traci says:

    No, I will be unable to attend because the date conflicted with a long overdue anniversary cruise with my dear husband.
    Praise the Lord, I was able to complete the challenge of all 24 Scripture passages. It changed my life and i’ve already started memorizing for 2012.
    Be blessed dear Siestas and Mama Beth…you will be in my thoughts and prayers.
    Lindsee…be sure and blog with lots of pictures of the celebration. God bless you all as you celebrate Jesus!
