Blazin Challenge...in hopes of growing closer to the LORD!

Sorry it's been a while, but now that I am back on the blog scene I will be updating much more.

Anyways it's been like 3 months and trust me it was well worth the wait!! I lead a small group at Hillcrest Covenant Church on Sunday nights with a few good friends of mine! Aaron Mitchum, Isaac Hodges, and Tim Ciccone (other leaders of 10/11 graders include Adam, Dave, Dan, and Brian)! We have a blast with our freshmen guys, and we are always looking for ways to have fun and grow closer as a group, and with God.

A few weeks ago the sophomore guys extended a friendly challenge. They wanted us to do the BLAZIN CHALLENGE at Buffalo Wild Wings with them. Of course ours guys said yes, and the 3 weeks up to the date of 11/1/09 the boys were doing what the could to prepare (hot sauce, peppers, wasbi, etc). As the day approached the anticipation grew and you could feel a change in the air! I couldn't believe how these kids were acting. We as youth leaders try to get these boys to be more like Jesus every day and it takes months before we see a significant change :) jk, but mention 12 HOT wings and they start becoming animals! I know it's hard to believe right??

WRONG...take a look at this video we shot on the night of 11/1/09 and see for yourself what 6 minutes, 12 hot wings, 40 guys, and the Lord on your side can accomplish! Enjoy! This is truly one of the funniest things I have ever seen!!
