PROUD of our STUDENTS/Saddleback Big Church this past weekend

Just in case some of you wonder what i get to do:
I get to hang out with these students and lead worship with them every weekend.
They are the best in the world!!!
You don't even know.


Click Here!!!
Look for John Ortberg and Click on Watch.

If you have time to listen to this message from John Ortberg who was our guest speaker at Saddleback, its very, very encouraging.

We love Hillsong United and our "set" up front happened to be Hillsong United. However, watch at the end of the message because Brody (Freshman) sings "Count me in" and it awesome.

Oh if you listen to From the Inside i mess up pretty bad in the first verse.

Always look at the date on your Tickets

So last Tuesday a mentor of mine gave me 4 tickets to watch an Angel game this past Thursday. I was totally pumped, not because i am an Angel fan, because i am Braves fan who really stink right now with a 3-7 record which is no reason to still be an Angel fan, but this week is spring break for some of our students in our ministry and its a cool time to hang. I made plans yesterday, Thursday, to hang out with 2 students from the band and a random friend of one of the students, to meet at my office at 12 to head up for the game. Around 11:30 Stephen (AKA:Flotch) calls and says, "Taffy are you sure that the Angels are playing today because on the schedule its says there playing at Seattle." So i said "MMMMM hold on let me look at the tickets and YUP your right the tickets were for yesterday." Anyways, the lesson from this blog - ALWAYS CHECK THE DATE ON YOUR TICKETS.

The Droopy's Scooter Razor

Sorry! Dumb Joke But had to post it



Death Row in Women's Prison

Three women are about to be executed. One''s a brunette, one''s a redhead, and one''s a blonde. The guard brings the brunette forward and the executioner asks if she has any last requests. She says no, and the executioner shouts, "Ready! Aim…"

Suddenly the brunette yells, "EARTHQUAKE!!!"

Everyone is startled and throws themselves on the ground while she escapes.

The guard brings the redhead forward and the executioner asks if she has any last requests. She say no, and the executioner shouts, "Ready! Aim…"

Suddenly the redhead yells, "TORNADO!!!"

Everyone is startled and looks around for cover while she escapes.

By now the blonde has it all figured out. The guard brings her forward and the executioner asks if she has any last requests. She says no, and the executioner shouts, "Ready! Aim…"

And the blonde yells, "FIRE!!!"

25 Trips To Chuckie Cheese 28000 Tickets

So in 2004 the Droopy's 04 discovered one of the greatest places ever, Chuckie Cheese. However, this was no ordinary Chuckie Cheese because this CC has a BUFFET!!! So we would revisit this chuckie periodically. After eating there a couple of times, we decided, hey why don't we save our tickets and get something big. So over four years and with the help of Droopy's 04 and 06 we finally got what we had been working for this:



Let me break it down for you:
28000 tickets
about 25 trips
each having about 10-20 Droopys and friends hanging out
over 4 years
probably 5000 tokens
10,000 Cinamon yum yums
6000 Garlic Bread Sticks
230 cups of soda
15 Salad Bowls (that was when the Droopy Girls came)
7500 slices of pizza

ALL EQUALS awesome HANG!

NOTE: i was guessing at most of these



Here is the funny thing that i hate right now to be quite honest. When people see what we accomplished they usually say "you know you could have probably bought that at the store for cheaper then what you paid for instead of winning tickets", my response to that is "NO CRAP REALLY! WHAT WAS I THINKING I AM THAT BIG OF A MORON!"
Its not about that, its about hanging out with the Droopy's,
its about the Buffet,
its about playing Basketball for tickets and trying to beat each other high score,
its about Marky playing the fish game the whole time we are there,
its about Deal or No Deal and screaming loudly for 4 tickets,
its about Frodo getting punch by the guy who was fixing the machine,
its about watching the lady who is a lurker at one of the games were everytime a child puts in ticket, it adds a point and she would then wait everytime for it to get to 100 points and then try and win it,
its about Jedi thinking he left his phone and we went all the way back to see if it was there but he never brought it and it was in his moms car,
it about the conversations about school, girls they like, life, and how God is moving in their lives,
its about the all you can eat buffet, i know that i sad already but very important
its about a sweet Razor Scooter,
its about saying do you remember the time when we saved up 28000 tickets, yup GOOD TIMES GOOD TIMES

So let me just say NO CRAP i know that we could have just bought a razor, but it about fun, memories, food, and hanging out with the DROOPY's.



I love the Droopy's

PS we had to put it together today and charge it over night so i will post some videos with it next week

Droopy's Video Scavenger Hunt

So today I took some of the Droopy's to hang out at the Spectrum (Orange County outside Mall) today for Spring Break. So we played a little Video Scavenger hunt with just digital cameras that had video capabilities.

Needed:
- At least 2 teams - Team A and Team 1
- A Digital Camera that can record Video
- The USB chord of the Camera
- And a computer to download all the Videos when all is done


THE SCAVENGER HUNT
1 Have a guy (not a girl) on your team, go to Hollister and imitate the models poses.

2 Have a stranger video tape you while they ride the Ferris wheel and you sit on the side watching. Or have someone on your team record another person singing from the top of there lungs.

3 Go into the Apple store, have someone tape someone playing some kind of CLEAN video really loud for about 10 seconds or when a apple person says turn it down.

4 Something Random to get a reaction out of crowd of people in line (like a couple fight).

5 Sit in Barnes & Noble. have a someone read 4 pages of a Dr. Suess book out loud in a British accent.

6 Tape someone walking in front of a crowd and stop and just look at the store

7 Get a crowd of people or people just looking up in the air.

8 Someone pretend to take a shower in the water deals in front of the food court or in front of target.

9 Order a coffee bean (just one) from Coffee Bean.

10 A group of you pretend to ice skate in the open area where the ice skating rink is.

Extra Credit: Make up a Video


Judging Points:
1) Creativity of the Video
2) Camera Shots (The Camera Should never be noticed)
3) Best reaction of a crowd on Camera

Disqualifications:
Getting Kicked Out of any store or the spectrum it self or harming anyone.

Seeing David Yawn on a Podcast

So David and i did a podcast and near the end he yawned on the podcast, so i had to rag on him a little bit on camera, well not really, but it was funny. Its about 3/4 into the video, but i think its probably because he got tired of listening to me.

A Confession



So last week my wife came home with a cabbage patch doll that the Sarti's gave us for Lea's first birthday. I had to confess to my wife, that when i was young child, i wanted a CPK really bad, and my wife totally made fun of me, in which she had every right to. I was around when CPK first came out. The demand was great and the supply was small, similar to the Wii and when XBOX's first came out. Anyways, my wife surprised me with a gift when i came home the other day. It was wrapped in gift wrap. At first i thought it was a Transformer, but as i opened it i realized what it was, and i start laughing when i saw, because it was a CPK doll. Name: Cora Miranda. Now here is the thing I grew up as a only child and all my friends had brother and sisters and so i think i was a little envious. YUP!!!

However, even though i never had biological brothers and sisters. God has brought me into a calling, that when i think about, had a huge influence in why i love student minitries. It because to me my little brothers and sisters are all those who i have had a chance to journey with in the Lord in some way. I known it sounds cheesy but true. SBBC Students, Liberty Students, Droopy's, band kids, Wildside, HSM, and so on. So really i have a ton of brothers and sisters.

Yup a Confession of a CPK Philipino
