Let me explain... The words captivated Mr. Woo - "win a beautiful Bible!" (and who doesn't want one??) So he entered the Ice Breaker Contest. Lo and behold, his 3 entries in various categories made it to the Top 10. We understand that someone else might have entered the same line, but Mr. Woo sent in his entry 3 minutes into the game, so we're hopeful.
Now I'll let them explain...
You're invited to vote!
The Ice Breaker contest was designed to help members learn creative new ways to share using the Gospel of John. League staff sorted through the nearly 500 entries and selected the 10 best ice breakers in each of 4 categories. Now it's your turn to vote for your favorites! The top 3 in each category will win a beautiful Bible in their choice of ESV, NIV or KJV translation.
Vote as often as you like. Voting closes at midnight November 5, 2009. We'll announce the winners after we've tabulated the results. Vote using our online ballot form here.
Vote for your favorite Ice Breaker now!
Vote for "Can I share with you the best news you will ever hear?" Yes, he sent this line in for 3 out of the 4 categories. Laugh if you will (as I also did), but it was chosen among all the submissions - every time.
In return, I'm asking that Mr. Woo post something encouraging for all of us with this new, "beautiful Bible" should we win in one of the categories. (Mr. Woo, is this alright with you? I could just ask you since you're on your computer right next to me, but then it would ruin the element of surprise...) I believe he would liked the ESV. All voters who leave a comment that they have voted will receive a complimentary "gift." Look for an e-mail early/mid-November! :)
This all reminds me of Mr. Woo's very first time preaching! It happened to be at one of the middle school Chapels (and I felt like a "Soccer Mom" trying to snap pictures from various angles, on top of chairs and on the floor, after I sent my kids out to Recess).
Here it is - Mr. Woo preaching his sermon titled Dying To Live:
Friends, let's get this man that Bible.
