Geocaching

Filed under: Daily Life — Tags: , — jodygambrell @ 8:56 pm

I’ve recently started a new sport hobby called geocaching.  It’s basically a worldwide “hide-n-seek” game using GPS coordinates.  Brady Haynes and Garner Boogaerts have gotten me hooked.  It’s a very cool way to spend some free time and discover new places.  Now I just need an iPhone to make it even more enjoyable.  Head on over to Geocaching.com to learn more.

Invisible Children

During the month of October, the Dawson students are recognizing mission projects in the U.S. and abroad.  This past Wednesday, Travis, from Invisible Children visited “The Underground” and discussed the injustice going on in Uganda.  Our high school and middle school students combined and were presented the story of a girl named Roseline (preview below)…

It was a very powerful video, moving several of our students to tears.  The students were given a chance to respond in prayer and by signing citizen arrest warrants to arrest Joseph Kony.

Learn more about this organization and sign the petition to Barack Obama by visiting InvisibleChildren.com.

And just think, if Obama helps end the war in Uganda, maybe he’ll win the Nobel Peace Prize…oh wait…too late.

I’m excited about Anthony Grant, but I’m not sold on the Tide’s new jerseys just yet (as seen above).  Don’t get me wrong, they are okay but the Tide’s retro look from the past few years is hard to top (see below).

Winning games is all that matters and I think Grant will do just that.

Middle School Retreat ’09

DSC00745

The Middle School Fall Retreat occurred last weekend (Oct 2-4) and it was awesome!  We carried about 85 students and leaders to Camp Dawson for this annual Fall tradition.  Our speaker for the weekend was Ryan Warren, our camp pastor from Fuge.  Ryan did a great job delivering the Word and he really challenged both our students and our leaders.  Matt Evans, a friend of mine from seminary, led our worship.  Matt and his band were phenomenal.  I’m blessed to call both Ryan and Matt friends and partners in ministry.  Dawson has an outstanding group of middle school students!

Check out the pictures from the weekend in the following YouTube video…

Help Me Win A Scholarship

Contact the fine folks over at Seminary Scholarship and tell them that you are tired of me coming to your house and bumming meals off of you and disguising it as youth ministry.
