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.

    By the Grace of God and a Sweet Sister-In-Christ, I have logged in all 24 Scriptures and I will be coming to Houston. I am so excited. What a wonderful blessing this journey has been.

    So sad I won’t be able to join in the fun. Have 52 new verses tucked away from psalms because of this journey in 2011. I’m leading a women’s conference Feb 10-11 and being a single mom of a special needs child I don’t often get time off. With the help of others to care for him so i can speak/teach in early feb I won’t have a place to stash him that close together πŸ™‚ I’m sure it will be an amazing time together though! So sad I won’t be able to join in but know that God is using me and I’m armed with the psalms now to fight the battle that this kind of leadership/ministry requires. Thank you for walking along with me in this journey!

    No, unfortunately I will not be there. Its our annual state retreat for Pastors & their wives, which I dearly love every year and desperately need as my husband has just announced his resignation from our current church. Please pray for me my Siestas!
    To those headed to the celebration — be sure to celebrate for us all!

    I have been waiting to say No because I just was so hoping to be able. I am registered though and will be contacting Jennifer to officially let you know. The date is just too soon after my hip replacement and it would be too much of a journey for me at this time. Thanks for your understanding and Beth I plan to be in Calgary with a group of ladies for the Living Proof Live in June. Bless you guys as you celebrate. It has been an honor and blessing to memorize scripture with you this last year!
