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.

    Completed – Yes!, and what a blessing! Thank you, Lord!
    Attending – no : (
    oh, how I’ve wished there might be a “webinar” connection for those of us who can’t attend. (Like the on-line training webinars we have to watch at work.)Wouldn’t that be awesome! even if it was only for portions of the celebration…ok I know I’m dreaming…just a thought! Thank you, Beth, for all your inspiration, you have blessed me greatly.

    Yes! My sister and I both completed all 24 memory verses together. (We took turns picking out what we’d commit to memory.)
    We might not have posted it to your blog each time, I don’t remember, but the blessing is in learning it BY HEART.(By heart. That says it all.)
    I did post it to my blog each time on a sticky so it stays at the top of the page.
