>Last weekend Midland hosted a Regional Bible Quiz tournament…here are some shots:

I was privileged to challenge the students Friday night ad Saturday morning:

 Quizzers glue to the quizmaster’s mouth…hoping to “see” the question before they hear it:

 After more than three decades, it is still an honor and a joy to quizmaster and watch the teens compete

 Seated on electronic pads, quizzers are poised to jump to their feet, causing (hopefully) the quizmaster to stop instantly and acknowledge the quizzer, who then has 20 seconds to provide the right question and answer…at this level of competition it is rare to get the first word out before they jump

Though a bit stressful, the quizmaster and other table officials have the “easy” job; the intense focus of the quizzers reveal who has the tougher duty!

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."
