Hope you enjoy it; this is a pretty fun one! And if you like it a lot; go to youtube; copy the "embed" thingy; and post it on your blog, facebook, twitter, etc.

Also, check back at to see the changes I made!

The FDC is starting soon!

Posted: Mar 30, 2010 by Kade in

Hey yall, just wanted to make sure that you know that the Fifty Dollar Challenge is starting THURSDAY!!

What does that mean?

1. Get ready to earn some money!
2. We're going to be releasing promo videos, and so far, no one has entered one (or even started one for all I know) so MAKE your PROMO! (btw. you can make multiple entries)

I'm going to be showing a pre-released promo video called the
"Balloon-a-thon" RIGHT HERE in a little while, so be checking back for it!

And I'm also going to release "The Toll Road" on our website starring the TfO team.

You really should make a video, ya know.

So if you really want that cool background full-sized, you'll have to email me. (go to my profile) I have it on my destop, and it actually looks really cool, so...

well, what happened to my mad-tech-skills?

A cool destop background

Hey, heres a cool background if you want it! I hope it gets bigger when you click on it. If it doesnt, than Houston, we have a problem.

it's time to start...

Teens for Orphans is hosting the FDC Promo Video Contest! Make your own video and enter it!

Go here, and click on "the contest" page to participate in TfO's Promo Video Contest!

Hey, making a video is a lot of fun; you should really do it! Make one with your family, friends, or enemies, it's even more fun!

Hey ya'll, sorry I've been out... I was grounded, what can ya do...

if we had it; would you do it?

Posted: Mar 23, 2010 by Kade in

So here's an idea:

What if TfO had a promo video contest where you could enter your own promo video and have it shown on our website? Plus win a prize (maybe).

Just to get an idea: would anyone want to participate, or would it be too much work?

1. Your face will be on our website.
2. You could get popular.
3. You might win a prize.
4. You would be motivating people to participate in the upcoming Fifty Dollar Challenge!
5. It's actually a lot of fun!
6. You could get your friends to be involved and have a lot of fun after church.
7. It's really fun.
8. You would be giving a home to orphans in Myanmar!
9. It's kinda fun!
10. You don't have to be a directer to do it. (I mean, look at ours, they aren't that special)
11. I'll provide a free editor. (yeah, you guess it: it's me) That means I'd add all the slides, put it together, etc... you would just have to do the filming (unless you wanted to do it yourself).
12. I'll say it one more time: making promo videos is super fun with friends.

1. It could be a lot of work.

Haha, look! It's seven to one! Well?? Who will participate and enter their video? Vote on the pole! over there <--------!

This is just an idea for now to see if people want to do it; it has not started; no cheating.

btw. TfO has twitter.

TfO's new release!

Posted: Mar 21, 2010 by Kade in

It's the all-new: "All In"!!

Please, please, spread this around! Show your friends! To blog this,
1. Go
2. Copy the "embed code" on the right.
3 And simply paste it in your post.

And take the Fifty Dollar Challenge!

I rep Christ 'till I die

Posted: Mar 19, 2010 by Kade in

Ya'll are all probably tired of all those rhymes huh? I'm posting this anyways, check this out!

I'm F-A-N-A-T-I-C/ I rep(resent) Christ 'til I D-I-E/ I'm not extreme/ I'm redeemed/ to serve a God who's extremely great. I'm a fanatic.
-Lecrae (again)

Can you believe those lyrics? "I rep Christ 'til I die"? Aw man, that's powerful! But you know what? If you claim the name of Christ... you are representing His name whether you like it or not. The question is, how are you repping His name? Are you dirtying it? Or when people look at you, do they think "That guy (or girl) has got a God who's extremely great!"

Aw, I would love for that to be said about me! And you know... online, that's really easy too. I can pull it off really well! You don't know me! On my blog... hoho, All I've got to do is post up some lyrics by Lecrae, and BAM! You think I'm a good Christian guy.

But praise God that He is extremely great and even when we dirty His name; He still loves and forgives us!

don't waste your life

Posted: Mar 18, 2010 by Kade in

"Paul said if Christ aint resurrected we wasted our lives
but that implies that our life's built around Jesus being alive"

Suffer, yeah do it for Christ if you trying to figure what to do with your life
if you making money hope you doing it right
because the money is Gods - you better steward it right
stay focused if you aint got no ride

Your life aint wrapped up in what you drive
the clothes you wear the job you work
the color your skin - naw we Christians first
people living life for a job - make a lil money start living for a car
get em a house a wife kids and a dog when they retire they living high on the hog
but guess what? they didn't ever really live at all - to live is Christ yeah that's Paul I recall! to die is gain so for Christ we give it all - he's the treasure you'll find in the mall

Your money, your singleness, marriage, talent, and time
they were loaned to you to show the world that Christ is Divine
that's why it's Christ in my rhymes - that's why it's Christ all the time
my whole world is built around him - He's the life in my lines
I refused to waste my life - he's too true ta chase that ice
heres my gifts and time cause I'm constantly trying to be used to praise the Christ

If he's truly raised to life then this news should change your life
and by his grace you can put your faith in a place that rules your days and nights

don't waste your life 

I prayed for you to be challenged by this.

I gonna go hard, mayne

Posted: Mar 17, 2010 by Kade in

I understand, you're probably not going to read this whole thing; it's long. I would encourage you too; it's powerful. But if you're not going to no matter what I say; just read the blue. And GO HARD!

Go Hard, Go Hard(2xs)

Lord, Use Me God(2xs)

Lord kill me If I don't preach the gospel
I'm still in my 20's- but I'll die if I got to
Eh man I''m Already dead- man forget my flesh
I done been crossed over, see the full court press
I'm a full court mess if the Lord don't use me
Running from my trials thinkin' everythangs groovy
If the Cross don't move me then I don't wanna breath no more
If I ain't seeing Christ partna I don't wanna see no more
Rep Him every day without worrying about bruising
I been to china man, I've seen some real persecution
If you didn't know Christ would ya life look the same?
Can they tell you value Jesus by the way you rep his name?
man what's the point of living if Im living for myself
Lord empty out my life before I put you on the shelf
So for God I go Hard I don't wanna die tonight
But It's too many people living who ain't heard about the Christ

Go Hard, Go Hard (2xs)
Lord Use Me God(2xs)

I went to Asia had to duck and hide-for sharin' my faith
They tell me "water it down" when I get back to states
They say "tune the music down and you might sell a lot a records"
But it's people out here dying and none of em heard the message
Took my wifey on mission trip - in central america
Shared her testimony 40 people stood and stared at her
When she said Jesus shoulda seen it was insane
cause 40 out of 40 never heard of Jesus name
Aw mayne we ain't focused on the war we just kickin' it
worried bout our image and our space up on the internet
take me out the game coach I don't wanna play no mo
If cant give it all I got and leave it out there on the court
Thank you for the Grace, for the will, and the desire
got me living for your glory instead of living to retire
But I pray I'll never tire of going hard for Messiah
I don't need no motivation You the reason I'm inspired.

Go Hard for the Lord 'til He takes us home
Go Hard for the Father go on get it on
That's what that is baby/that what that mean/that what that mean
That what That is baby/That what that mean/that what that mean
Wha-What that mean?

That mean that we, should be out on the streets
Not just in houses with our Bible's summarizing what we read
Man this ain't deep (man this ain't deep)/why we ain't doing what we read
Its like we sleep (its like we sleep)
But sinners sleepwalk when they sleep
So why can't we (so why can't we)/the redeemed of the LORD
Act out, what He said/and make a scene for the LORD
Action-cut, say what, like we was the director
But you better get a Grip like movie sets, and get to stepping/
I know you done it/da-done it, da-done-and heard it all
You was going hard for the Lord before you heard this song
But don't play yourself to save ya self/and walk in fear
Scripture's like a mirror/the truth is closer than it appears


where are all da the guys? a humorous poem

Posted: Mar 16, 2010 by Kade in

Where are all da guys?

Where are da guys that once stood up so straight and tall?
Who stood their ground and did not fall?

Where are da guys who so heatedly toiled?
As the sweat from their forehead fell to the soil?

Where are all da guys before the video games came?
When all their souls were then which claimed?

Where are all the guys on blogger?
Playing Call of Duty or the lovely Frogger?

Where are da guys who work in our organization, TfO?
How come only girls are excited about this, and all da guys are foes?

Fe-fi-fo-fum, where are all da englishmon?
Before b-ball, and football and every-other-sport came on?

Huh? Huh? Where are all da guys?
Who once wore suits and ties?
Who are getting fat on burgers and fries?
Who once were good and wise?

Where are all da lads?
Chasing chicks, or talking ta their dads?
(i know, horrible ryhme)

Where are all the fellow missionaries?
I heard that 2/3rds are upright ladies.

That's what I'm a askin'! Where are all da men?
At home with their families or down in their dens?

And what about da boys? 
Are they doing work or playing wit toys? (and making a lot o' noise) 

Where are all da Christian dudes?
Drinking soda and eating foods?

Yo homey, where are all da males?
Checkin' facebook and emails?

So where are all of dem?
Is there hope, or are they condemned? 

 Well it don't matter 'cause no guys are reading this anyways. 
But if you ever do find a guy, tell him to read this! 
written by yours truely
(don't mind the bad ryhmes :)

*Stay tuned tomorrow to hear Kade's post:
"and now about da ladies"*...
just joking

Tomorrow is... March 9th. Aren't you excited!? TfO is going to release its fund raiser!

I'm going to be pretty busy today preparing for stuff, so not a long post today. But I hope you're getting excited!

Tomorrow: I will be posting "Lemonade" on my blog. I will be posting an award that anyone who participates in this fund raiser, can have. I will write about the fund raiser... and, if you visit Teens for Orphans' website, I will be all decked out!

So look forward to tomorrow!

"Lemonade" preview

Posted: Mar 6, 2010 by Kade in

Sorry, I've been having some technical troubles, but I've got a preview video for you all to check out! I'm going to try and post it, but you can go here to view it!

March 9th

Posted: by Kade in

So coming March 9th, TfO is releasing a nationwide fund raiser. And it is going to be awesome! Although I can't tell you what it is, because, well, it's being released March 9th. (duh)

Anyways, right now I'm working on the website to make it all decked out with this fund raiser. It's not up, mind you, because, well, it's being released March 9th.

And we're going to be making a whole bunch of promo videos (which you will be able to get and post on your site) (but not yet, because, well, it's being released March 9th).

If you haven't noticed yet, but big things are going to happen... March 9th. And if you miss out, it's your problem, not mine. (well i guess it will be my problem if no one participates on well, March 9th)

disclaimer: all I've been talking about is March 9th, however, even though the fund raiser is being released then, it does not start until April 1st. But I guess you would have figured that out anyways... on, well, March 9th.

I forgot

Posted: Mar 5, 2010 by Kade in

Wow, I forgot to post today, I can't believe it! Eh whatever, you could use a day without Kade.

a powerful question

Posted: Mar 4, 2010 by Kade in

"For if the dead are not raised, not even Christ has been raised;
and if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins...
If we have hoped in Christ in this life only, we are of all men most to be pitied."
-1 Cor. 15

Paul is talking about the Christians who are "sold out" to Jesus, not the avarage chump in the U.S. Because those chumps wouldn't be "most to be pitied" for "just going to church on Sunday". The ones who would be "most to be pitied" are the ones who are living a life "sold out to Jesus" and who are making big sacrifices, that if, there were not a heaven; it would stink for them.
So, the question:
Am I making any sacrifices, that if, there ended up being "no heaven" it would stink for me?
And a bonus one, I guess:
Am I living a life sold out Jesus?

eh, God can't use me...

Posted: Mar 3, 2010 by Kade in

Why not?
Noah got drunk.
Abraham lied about his wife.
Jacob was a swindler.
Mosses stuttered.
He also had an anger problem.
Hosea married a prostitute.
David had an affair.
Solomon had a bunch of wives.
The woman at the well had a bunch of husbands.
Naomi was a widow.
Sarah was too old.
David was too young.
Peter was afraid of death.
Lazarus was dead.
Miriam was a gossip.
Jonah ran away from God.
Thomas doubted.
Jeremiah got depressed.
Elijah got burnt out.
Martha was too busy.
Timothy had stomach problems.
John Mark was rejected by the apostle Paul.
Moses was a murderer.
So was David.
So was Paul.

So... say it again, why can't he use you?:

"But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him. It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Therefore, as it is written: "Let him who boasts boast in the Lord." -1 Corithians 1:27-31

that list was written by Sandra Glahn, and that verse was written by Paul, not me I'm afriad.

a wasted opportunity

Posted: Mar 1, 2010 by Kade in

Last week I worked out. Too much. And for the past few days, my arms have been in extreme pain. And my elbow joints hardly work! You know the saying, "I don't know my own strength?" Well, that's right. I may picture myself as a big buff dude, but the fact is... I'm not. Aww! I said it!

Anyways, yesterday after church, the youth in our church had our band practice. And usually, I play the djembe (a hand drum) in the band. (I can play other intruments, but that's what I do in the band).

But my arms hurt so much that day, that I didn't play.


What a wasted opportunity!

I've got this song on my side-bar, the chorus says:
"Even when my eyes are dry, even when my soul is tired, even when my hands are heavy, I will lift them up to you. 'Cause it's not about how I feel. Oh Lord, I'm here for you."

Shoot! I'm missed it! I could've done what this song is talking about... literally.

So here's the plan: I'm going to throw out my arms Saturday night, and then...

Naww, I'm not that dumb.
