An Exciting GameTime in TN

You’ve been hearing me talk about GameTime a lot lately. The event is now over and was awesome!

The sports and cheer camps, along with a kid zone, happened in the afternoon. It was such a joy to watch the athletes working with the kids – they had so much fun! Our counselors were excited to be there, and did a great job connecting with the kids during the Gospel presentation. There were about 72 decisions for Christ that afternoon!

The evening portion of the event took place in Neyland Stadium. It rained for just a couple of minutes at the beginning of the evening, but it quickly dissipated after everyone prayed. There was a local brother-sister group (Charles & Taylor) that sang first to get things started.

A Day With Flat Stanley

Last week in the mail I received a Flat Stanley from a friend’s 2nd grade son in South Dakota. If you have never heard of Flat Stanley, you should check out the synopsis on Wikipedia. I spent Saturday afternoon in downtown Knoxville with my friend Theresa, showing Flat Stanley all of the sites. Here are some of the highlights:

First we showed him Market Square – this is a great place to hang out. There are restaurants and cute little shops. In the summer, they play free movies in the square; in the winter there is an ice skating rink.
