s l e e p y...
Well, Friday night's double header at my church went well.
Hearing Michael Chang speak about his life as a pro tennis player and his faith was pretty good, unlike most athletes I've heard speak, he's actually comes across as very articulate, funny, and sincere. I think almost about 500 people from my church and local area came to hear him, so it was a pretty packed house. He also stayed afterwards to sign autographs and take pictures with people... and even after all of that, he also came in to speak just to the high school and junior high kids, taking their questions and answering them. You'd think a person as successful as him might be a little arrogant or even aloof, but I can hardly think of a person more down-to-earth or humble than he was. Very cool experience... got me an autographed copy of his book. =)
The 30 Hour Famine event for the high schoolers and junior highers was fun too... we spent most of the night playing games, including some fun flashlight tag/ hide-n-go-seek games in the dark. We tried get everybody to sleep around 2:00 AM, but it was a little tough. Man, a room full of hungry high schoolers and junior highers trying to sleep somehow turned into a symphony of snoring... haha. By 8:00 this morning, we finally broke the fast with breakfast (ironic, since that's the origin of the word breakfast). The kids were starving, and they wolfed down all the food the parents made - scrambled eggs, pancakes, fresh fruit, sausage.
Time for me to make up my sleep.
