Contenders Fun

Here are some of the Contenders of the Faith group. Bill organized(quickly) a paintball excursion in the area outside of town. Alex(the tallest one in the group works on the office next to Bill) came with his girlfriend to help and have fun.

If you look at the center of the photo you will see Second! He is quite stealth!

Here is Third...notice the importance of safety gear! No it is not a bird dropping but a hit!

Some of the ravines that the kids played in.

Plotting strategy.

Bill began the afternoon with a prayer and then a quick object lesson. The opening object lesson did not go over all that well as the boys were very excited to play. Afterwards when everyone had finished the games, Bill organized his second object lesson. This was exciting because Alex and Adreana(sp) were perfect. Bill put the tailgate down on the truck and had Alex(6'4") stand on it. Then he had Adreana pull him down from the ground. Object it is easier to be pulled down to sin then uplift one not too. Then Bill had 2 of the teens stand on the tailgate with Alex...between the three they were able to pull Adreana up. Object, we are strengthened with fellow Christians.

Overall the activity was wonderful and the boys enjoyed the getaway. Cost of equipment...everyone owned their paintball guns...CO2 everyone brought their own...cost to fill up 5 gallons water ...nothing...so total cost of day...PRICELESS...

Fellowshipping and enjoying and exercising are important and we must not forget them.

Paintball guns are very inexpensive and the boys all bought theirs from summer job money a few years ago...

Oh What MANLY fun! I can only IMAGINE my boys running around in those revines!!! I don't think they've ever seen a revine! LOL

My oldest absolutely LOVES paint gun and lazer tag.

I LOVED Bill's 2nd object lesson. We must ever be vigilant because sin so easily besets us!
