CHECK THIS OUT!
So last night we had our "re-launch" service for CRAVE 68. It went awesome. Thanks for axin'.
We had about 60 students (9 of which came forward to get saved) and just had a great time. There's such a difference between Jr. High and High School Students. I love high school students, I really do, but with High School students a lot of times you have the "I'm so cool you wish you were me" vibe or the Terrell Owens "I love me some me" attitude. Now there are exceptions to that rule but you know what I'm saying.
With Jr. High students you don't have nearly as much of that kind of stuff, which is excellent. I LOVE IT! HERE'S THE STORY...
So, as a promotion to help get students to come we gave away $100. I draw out the winning card and call "RJ Clark" as the winner. He's a 12 year old student, who was so excited to win I thought he might mess himself. Think about winning 100 bucks when you were 12, shoot I'd get tickled now to win 100 bucks, but at 12... forget about it.
Anyhow, I call him up front and say to him "What are you gonna do with your 100 bucks?" I give him the mic and he goes "Well, the first thing I'm going to do is put $40 back into that offering bucket!" He hands me his $40 offering and went and sat down. As he sat down he said "God thank you for my 60 dollars".
I was speechless. Dumbfounded. Flabbergasted. Whatever you wanna say. I didn't know what he was going to do when I gave him the mic but that was the last thing I would have expected.
That right there made me wanna be a little bit more like RJ Clark, the 12 year old from CRAVE 68.
Here's a picture of RJ excited as ever with his 60 bucks...
I still don't think people read this, but whatever.
