airsoft guns and turkey

December 4, 2008

i’ve not been able to keep up with the blogs that i’ve wanted to post.
i wanted to get this out last week, but i didn’t, so act like i posted this right after thanksgiving.
here goes.

so, last night we had our youth family thanksgiving dinner for the pipeline students at first assembly.
this is probably one of the only events where all of our students and parents come together.
we have tons of food, and talk briefly about how our church wants to partner with families.

dress up
each table competed to see who could make the best turkey.
here is our winner. 

i had a small table in the center of the room and i showed two huge containers that had a total of 4000 air soft pellets in them.
this is the number of hours of influence that parents have in their child’s in a year. 
between 3000-4000. 

i then picked up this small bag and said.
this is the number of hours of influence the church has in your child’s life.
the bag contained roughly 40.

we as a church, want to join together with parents to influence your child.
parents, you have more influence in your child’s life, than the church does.

blood:water mission
we ended the night with sharing about the current emphasis we had been giving our students.
for the month of november, we challenged our students to give/collect money for blood:water mission.
we then showed this video.

after party
after clean up.
we had left overs.
so we called the local homeless shelter, and took food there.
here is what one of our leaders had to say about his experience.
“As soon as we walked in the door we had everyone smiling. To see a smiling face, a face that provides hope. More than just food or just a roof over their head for the time being. This is in OUR city… and the words that come to my mind are impact and hope. A quote that come to my mind is from Mother Teresa I don’t know it word for word but it goes something like this… SEE a little bit of Jesus in everyone. I could write more… which is crazy because we were there for like 3 minutes.” 

maybe next year we should take our firsts.

  3. Great post! These are vital things to stay in mind, it’s usually simple to forget concerning the easy things when you get consumed by a project.

  4. Thank you for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbour were preparing to do some research about that. We got a good book on that matter from our local library and most books where not as influensive as your information. I am very glad to see such information!

  7. I like the idea as well. But, does anyone know where to get cheap pellets? It would be nice, if anyone have the information i want. Thanks!

  8. Another great world war two airsoft gun that is a replica piece is the M1 Garand semi automatic replica gun. The M1 Garand was made to chamber the 30-06 round and was accurate to about four hundred meters. The world war two airsoft gun is built with full metal parts and a real wood stock. It looks exactly like what it was modeled after. The M1 Garand can be purchased for around nine hundred dollars to about nine hundred fifty dollars depending on what equipment comes with the gun.;

    The higher quality Airsoft Sniper Rifle is usually made from heavyweight ABS plastic. This heavyweight material is a blend of plastic and metal. The ABS plastic gives the gun a cost effective, realistic heavy feel without the expensive steel manufacturing. The Airsoft Sniper Rifle that is made of this material is generally marked ABS, which usually increases its overall value. The Japanese Airsoft Gun manufacturing companies Tanaka and Maruzen make the most popular of these models.^*.;

  10. electric airsoft gun. Also known as AEG (Airsoft Electric Gun) these are the top of the range when it comes to airsoft guns. Each AEG has a tiny but very powerful motor inside which powers the firing mechanism. There is still a spring inside an AEG but this is controlled by the electronic motor to achieve high rates of fully automatic fire. One of the really neat things about this type of airsoft gun is that it can be loaded with miniature paintballs. A word of warning however – if a paintball breaks inside an AEG it can clog up the entire firing mechanism meaning you’ll have to strip the gun down and clean it. *-“”
