The end of Prelims

Friday, July 26th, 2013

Preliminary quizzing is over. Northeastern Team 2 is in the championship bracket and will quiz at 10am tomorrow (Saturday). They will need to win 2 quizzes to make it to the finals. They covet your prayers for them to stay calm and quiz well. Northeastern Team 1 has made it into the consolation A bracket and can finish as high as 10th place. They quiz at 10:30am tomorrow and would also ask that you be praying for them as they quiz. They need to win twice to make the consolation finals. Thank you all for your prayers. It has been a great week so far and we all look forward to seeing what God does tomorrow and how He uses the quizzing to teach us about Himself.

Nats Day 2

Thursday, July 25th, 2013

Day #2 is in the books and it was a day of ups and downs. Team #1 has had some rough quizzes, but we are hopeful that tomorrow morning will be better and they will make the xyz’s. Team #2 is doing a great job! They are currently in second place with 2 quizzes left. We covet your prayers for the quizzing tomorrow and for safety as the kids get a chance to do something fun in the afternoon. We can’t wait to see what God has in store for us all. We have learned so much from Him this week – what a great God we serve! Thankful for God’s Word!

Internationals Day 1

Wednesday, July 24th, 2013

Today started with devotions from Daniel Corey who challenged us to have a unified heart. It was a great way to start the day and focus on God. The Northeastern Teams had a good Day 1 at Summit Grove. Team #1 had some good quizzes and a couple that were tough, but they worked hard and stayed focus. Praying that tomorrow proves to be a better day. Team 2 had a great day and came in first or second in every quiz. We thank you for your prayers and ask that you continue to pray for each one!

Your prayers are appreciated.
