Tiger Woods

Andy Sandler or something? I can't really remember his name but we watched a 15 minute clip he did on a passage in Mark 10:17-23.
17 As Jesus started on his way, a man ran up to him and fell on his knees before him. "Good teacher," he asked, "what must I do to inherit eternal life?" 18 "Why do you call me good?" Jesus answered. "No one is good--except God alone. 19 You know the commandments: 'Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not give false testimony, do not defraud, honor your father and mother.'" 20 "Teacher," he declared, "all these I have kept since I was a boy." 21 Jesus looked at him and loved him. "One thing you lack," he said. "Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me." 22 At this the man's face fell. He went away sad, because he had great wealth. 23 Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, "How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God!"
Later we all piled into Kev's van and headed out to the Sport's Dome to hit some balls at the driving range. We were all horrible to say the least, but Nick was getting a hang of it and Montana seemed like a pro golfer! Way to go guys!
Then they headed up Mount Mckay, our youth group favourite spot, since it was such a beautiful night. Thanks for the good time, guys :)

Uhm.. ouch

Well hey we had an interesting youth group yesterday! Kev took us all out paintballing, and we got out a huge group of people, it was great! There were about.. I dunno twenty of us. We played a couple rounds of just killing each other, and one of capture the flag. At one point we challenged the "pro" paintballers there...20 to 8. Let's just say we're all severely bruised now. My right leg has like 6 purple and red bumps on it now, but it was worth it. Good times!!
Kev's Bible study was from Luke, talking about when Jesus was on the cross with the two prisoners, how both of them treated Jesus. One treated Jesus with mockery and wanted Jesus to save them and himself. The other asked "Do you not fear God, when you share the same fate as him?" to the first man. He then asked Jesus to remember him when they die, and Jesus promised the man a home in heaven that day.
Okay so I can't remember the whole thing right now, it'll come to me later. But yes, good youth group, good perogies, good welts.

Youth next week will be held at the church at 6pm!

Hello Again!

Youth group is back in session!!

Last night a few of us got together at Kev's house and had a Bible Study and talked about what we want to do for the new year. We all have some pretty great and crazy ideas, but we still aren't 100% on what we're gonna do, but we'll figure it out. There is going to be no youth group next week though because Kevin is going to be out of town.

If you have any suggestions on how you want youth group to go this year, parents and kids, please comment or contact myself, Juanita, or Kevin!

Our Last Youth for the Summer

Awwww it was our last youth group. *sniff sniff* lol and it was a FABULOUS time. Most of us got to meet Ann and she's such a sweetheart. Well we made food that I can't even pronounce lol but was SOOOO GOOD! We met a cool guy Mitch and Neil introduced us to a brand new province called P.I.E. Greg told some pretty funny stories during supper time i must say!

Well then we went to the Drop Inn and got to see where Ann worked. We had some pretty intense fooseball games, and piano wars lol!

Ann gave us a talk on her life and what she's gone through. She encouraged us to remember that the issues that we face in our life and just as important as anyone elses and to not tell ourselves the lies that we use as an excuse.

Well guys I will be in Thunder Bay ALL SUMMER so give me a call

Bones and Bears

WELL WELL I have to say Kevin's new van is absolutely LOVELY! Well after the group came and picked me up in the spiffy new van, we went to Kevin's dad's new house. Kevin was trying to get us to go near the bees and I have to say i wasn't partial to them. Anyways then we went for a walk in the back and found bones that were picked clean. Kinda creepy. Well we made it to the river and Neil got stuck on the other side. Kevin got us lost on the way back, but eventually we used our amazing directional skills to make it back. After grabbing some chips we went back to the church and pigged out like every week.

On our last youth group for the summer we will be having a FABULOUS dinner. I think its May 26th. It'll be a bit of a potluck and more details on this will be posted eventually.

Well for anyone who actually READS this thing

Our posts are becoming quite colourful..

Hey guys!!!! This would have been an awesome week to post pictures, but Kevin forgot his camera in the car...sorry to disappoint.

I think we all met at the church half an hour before Kevin got there, so we had a party! WOO. Hahaha not really. The lesson was basically based around the verse "Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse." found in Romans 12:14. We also discussed who were the people that were blessed, and the people that are cursed and found that we could achieve none of the blessing except through Jesus. (There were several other verses we went through, but I'll write them later. Bad memory.)

Cascades!!!! It was alot of fun racing on the rocks and getting lost. Chad ended up going swimming in the river in just his underwear... hmm. We later went to Wal-Mart (do we do this alot?) to buy some random stuff for Kev, then went to the church to play Wii!!!! Unfortunately we all had to go by the time we got it set up.
Thanks for the awesome time, guys!!!!

Heather Dawn Kimball!

P.S. Burnt popcorn is gross.

Ahaa welll that was an interesting experience with lamb. Although last years lamb was FABULOUS, this year at our passover dinner, it wasn't so great. But the "unleaven" bread deffinitely made up for it. Of course making unleaven bread is supposed to be a fast thing, we took about 2 hours to make ours, considering we deepfried it...ahaa. But the meal wasn't too bad and we managed to do it.
We watched part of the movie about Jesus' life (the kids version, not the Passion) and kinda talked about what the people were expecting as their Messiah, and when Jesus didn't end up being what they wanted, they were angry. On Palm Sunday, they were shouting Hosannah, meaning Deliverer, but only a couple days later, they chose to crucify him.
Well then the guys and i went out to try out the new basketball nets! Ahaa we had an INTENSE game of basketball, Greg and Kevin VS Juanita, Neil and Andy, and WE WON!! woo thanks to Andrews CRAZY shot from like halfcourt!
Also an announcement was made that there will be only 7 more weeks of youth group. Saturday, May 26th is our last youth group. We'll be stopping youth for the summer and starting up again in September. Kevin has an idea for something he wants to do in the summer, and we'll get more information on that soon.
Also, Junior Youth is OVER. Sorry guys for those of you into this idea, but we've decided to end it for now. Maybe we'll try again in the future, but for now, with only 7 more weeks of youth, we're going to stop JY.
Well until next week,
Forshizzle my hommies!
