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!

Summit Grove

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013

We have arrived at Summit Grove! The kids are anxious to start quizzing! Both teams quiz at 10am Wednesday morning. Please pray for us. We will update here how the day goes. You can check stats here, http://www.greenvillecma.org/youth_ministry.aspx?v=13

The Quizzers are Here!

Saturday, July 20th, 2013

The 2 teams representing the Northeastern District at International Quiz Finals, July 23-27 have arrived in Chemung, NY and are practicing hard.  The kids are quizzing all day and working well together.  They have had some times to just relax and have fun as well.  They are a great group to work with and it will be exciting to see how God works in each of them as we go to the tournament.  We will try to update you all here as we have time and internet availability! Your prayers are appreciated.

Championship Round

Thursday, July 12th, 2012

Our time quizzing is over. Team 2 finished 6th place overall and team 1 finished in 7th.  We had a good day, but God had other plans than us being in the finals.  We are content with where God placed us and we had a great time at Nats 2012!  We look forward to cheering tonight.  Pacific Northwest 1, Canadian Midwest 2, and Western Canada will be in the final 3 at 7:30.  We fly out tomorrow morning and some will be traveling home via automobile tomorrow as well. Please pray for safety and ease of travel! Thank you all for praying!

Championship Round Update

Thursday, July 12th, 2012

I misunderstood the report and have now confirmed.  As a result of where they placed this morning, both teams were out of the top 3 places when the entered the 2 PM quiz.  That quiz is also now complete and Team 1 took first while Team 2 took second, meaning they have ended up finishing in 6th and 7th overall for the 2012 International Tournament!  WELL DONE NORTHEASTERN!

 

In The Championship Round

Thursday, July 12th, 2012

As a result of how well they did so far, both Northeastern teams made it into the top 9 (Championship Round) for quizzing today.  Team 1 was in 3rd and Team 2 was in 7th.  Unfortunately, due to where they placed in the early quizzes this morning, they had to quiz against each other at 11:45 AM their time.  In that quiz, Team 1 took 3rd and Team 2 took 2nd.  This means, based on their finishes for today so far, they will both have to quiz each other again at 2 PM (3 PM our time).  Either team could still make it to the top three and be in the final championship quiz but that team would have to win two quizzes in a row (the 2 PM quiz and one following).  Whichever team does not win, or if neither win, then they will have no chance at the top three positions and will only be in the running for positions 4-9.  Please pray for both teams now that God’s will be done and that all quizzers and their coaches have fun and give God the glory no matter how things turn out.

 

Preliminaries Complete

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

Day 2 of quizzing has ended and both Northeastern Teams have made it to the championship round.  Team 1 is in 3rd place after the prelims and Team 2 is in 7th. Everyone has answered questions and contributed to their teams. Tomorrow’s quizzing is a double elimination format.  The quizzers are all excited to be doing so well and we look forward to what God has for us tomorrow! Thank you so much for your prayers, they are greatly appreciated!

Internationals Day 1

Tuesday, July 10th, 2012

Both Northeastern teams had a rough morning at day 1 of Internationals. They persevered and listened to their coaches and the afternoon was much better.  Both teams are tied for 8th place after 6 quizzes, with 6 more to quiz tomorrow.  Sam Benedict and Nick Murgia both quizzed out with a bonus!  Thank you for your prayers for the teams, we can certainly feel them!

Preparing For Day One

Monday, July 9th, 2012

The Northeastern District team members that flew to Internationals (and didn’t drive out with their families) arrived in Minnesota in the early afternoon (EST) and headed to the Mall of America on the Light Rail.  The plan was to spend some time there (since there is no “free day” this year) and wait to be picked up by someone coming from Crown to transport them to the college at 3 PM (or 4 PM our time).  Unfortunately, due to some traveling troubles of their own, their transportation arrived at Crown College late and then got stuck in traffic on their way to pick up the team and arrived even later at the mall.  After the 50 minute drive back to the college our team arrived somewhere around 8:30 PM EST after leaving Buffalo around 6 AM.  Pray that the quizzers and coaches get plenty of sleep as they start their 2012 Internationals experience with 6 quizzes on Tuesday.  More information on how they are doing will be posted Tuesday evening if not sooner.  They are having trouble getting internet access presently.

 

Heading To Minnesota

Saturday, July 7th, 2012

Quiz practice is complete and the teams are getting ready to head to Crown College in Minnesota.  4 of the quizzers headed out today with their parents with the rest of us flying out of Buffalo early Monday morning.  We covet your prayers for safe travel, good quizzing and most of all that our attitudes and actions will reflect Christ in all that we do and say.  Check back for more updates as we are able to post!
