You know you're in Bible Bee when...

...your idea of a Disney vacation is taking an hour-long test on the book of Nahum.

Hi, y'all,
Sorry about the lack of posting yesterday.  Life was crazy, and when it wasn't we were studying, visiting with friends, and eating supper in downtown Disney (which really is magical after dark).  Yesterday was registration day, so all we had to do was sign a bunch of papers and get settled in.  But today...well, today is the day of THE TEST.  In just a few minutes Delie and I head down to take our written test with a hundred other brothers and sisters in Christ.  We're excited.  We're nervous.  We feel unprepared.  And we really want to give God the glory.

Please pray...
For Anna, Samuel, and Thomas who are already taking their written and oral tests.
For Delie and I as we head downstairs to do the same.
For all the other contestants who have become such dear friends and encouragers over the past few months.
For all the Bible Bee staff members who have organized all this.
And that God would be glorified in whatever we do and say.

Last night we got together with a group of other contestants, and as we fellowshipped and prayed with one another, I realized that that is a picture of what the Bible Bee really stands for--encouraging and equipping believers to do God's work.

Now it's time to go live out all that I just wrote.

P.S.  Check back tonight to see if we or any of our friends advanced to the next round--if they do, you can watch it live via webcast!
