operation: world

Posted: Oct 29, 2010 by Kade in

So at my friend's part we made tie-dye shirts, which was fun, because I've never had a tie-dye shirt before. I did my shirt a bit different, and it was looking pretty bad at first, but after some work with a Sharpe, it looks pretty cool!

It reads: "WE UNASHAMED". Based on Lecrae's song "Unashamed".

I'm pretty excited about this BAD BOY my Dad got me!!! Operation World!! You can pray for the whole world with details of population, geography, religion, etc. So I'm going to start praying for a people every day. Today I prayed for the Caribbean.

just to let you know...

Also, I finished the GED with the highest score of 16 and 17-year-olds in NW Arkansas!

Hey, can you guys be praying for Nathan? Last night we had another soccer game (which we brutally lost) and he somehow tripped, twisted, and fell, on his foot. He's going to go into the doc at 11 a.m. today, but it looks bad.

update on ecuador

Posted: Oct 25, 2010 by Kade in

So some of you wanted an update on my trip to Ecuador!! Although, I don't have much to say...

We're leaving on the 4th of next month, and it's a two-week trip involving lots of travel on plane, car, and canoe! It's a medical/dental trip, and Ill be helping out the guys doing it. I'm really excited to be visiting Christians and unbelievers alike in a different culture, and hyped that God allows this piece of trash to show His glory. I can only pray that He would USE. ME. UP. I'm supposed find out details very soon, but thanks so much for showing interest in my goings-on!! I appreciate it!

[L to R:] Me, Kyler, Kole, Kwinn
(btw. this is Nathan, the guy I'm going to Ecuador with)

And guess what!?! I scored!!! It was actually my first goal of the season... but... eah... I still scored!! I was playing center defense and the ball had a slight roll coming to me, and there was a bit of wind behind me, and so, at about half-field, I had at it. The ball when into the top left corner (which was just luck grace) and I was pumped!!

We won our last game 4 to 3, although we only had to tie to win. And... our only female player scored one of our points! (And of course, Kole scored the other 2).

Mediocrity/Averageness and 10.22.10 RELEASE!

Posted: by Kade in


Someone who lives in complacency because of: ignorance, a rejection of the truth, or a lack of motivation.

Every Christian should be a rebel unto averageness because of the knowledge we have and a motivation like no other in Christ Jesus. So why are we sucked into the mediocrity of living like Christians only on Sunday? Is that why Christ died? For us to live our Sundays as Christians?

So maybe you're like this person. Living a mediocre Christian life, and you know it.

So how can I help? First, watch this.

Man, isn't that powerful? The way that you going to get out of mediocrity is by treasuring CHRIST ABOVE ALL THINGS! And glorifying Him with your Time. Money. Food. Friends. Family. Education. Job/Success. EVERYTHING!

Now, I have an opportunity for YOU to stop living in mediocrity and to start treasuring Christ above everything, and I will release it this afternoon! Haha, just to let the excitement build! Oh, invite your mediocre and unmediocre friends over for it!!

coming to a site very near to you, very soon.

i guess this is a habit now...

Maybe I am spiderman, who knows? Maybe I was bit by a big, ugly lookin' spider when I was a young 'un... you never know...

Haha, so yesterday, we went to this ropes course to climb, and it was pretty fun!!
Yes, I was freaking out. But it looked easy from this view...

I know I posted this before, but it explains a lot in my life, and it means a lot to me:
"...I fall and feel scorned when I cant get it together...

But then something clicked! It's crazy how I ignored this!
'Cause even when I slip, this ain't based on my performance!
Christ was eqquiped, ran the race with endurance,
and when His flesh was hit, His righteousness was my assurance, Yeah!

I know dem chains had me trapped for a while,
It's in my past, I'm relaxed in him now,
Christ my savior, he cracked through the clouds,
Did it perfect, listen to the claps from the crowd!"

God, please forgive me for all the times I push you out of the way. Please let me be content in the amazing role of background.

Please watch this and tell me what you think.

God's really been changing my heart lately, and this song made a big impact on me. Often, I just need stop being the rock star, comedian, Mr. Oh-so-important, or Mr. So-important-I-don't-have-to-do-these-lowly-things, and start being the servant I've been called to be, and "play in the background like I'm an instrument".

pretty much my favorite place in the world is...

Sunday Recap: Spiderman

Posted: Oct 17, 2010 by Kade in

So the other day, Kaleb (11) and I decided to climb this playground thing all the way through without touching ground. It was really fun! Although the first time I tried; I failed. And Kaleb laughed in my face when he completed it. Twerp.

I also joined the club with the little ones. The clubhouse was awesome!

But toon in later to find out what my favorite place in the world is!!

craft fairs and perspectives!

Posted: Oct 15, 2010 by Kade in

So yesterday, we went to a craft fair, and it was actually really cool! I got this necklace:

And these glasses:

I don't know how this happened, but it's kinda cool.

And I also got a fire-starter-thing, which is really cool...

Also, I had a Perspectives meeting last night, and I am getting totally excited about Perspective coming next year!!!!! Our class is going to be the best! Each and every one of you need to TAKE PERSPECTIVES! It was an amazing course that change my life radically by showing me God's heart for me and the nations.
If you live near Rogers, and you are interested in our class, shoot me an email or something. Also, we've got a $50 off deal for early registration... you can't beat that.

news from last week

Posted: Oct 12, 2010 by Kade in

Sorry for not posting in a while! Moral of the story: obey your parents. Don't get grounded.


Soccer was a lot of fun! We still lost, by I gave my best! And I also discovered something: I'm not very good at soccer. But I play hard, run a ton, and am very "aggressive", (that's a good word to use) and it makes up for my lack of skill. Yes, I am still representing Christ on the field, and I never go for the body. But if they body gets in the way, that's another thing...
                                                                               [now, this is a very fearsome, aggressive picture. got it?]

No doubt those TOASTER STRUDELS had something positive to do with my game.

life update

Posted: Oct 5, 2010 by Kade in

Well, you know how I was going to the adult educashion senter a while back? Well, I've been taking tests and stuff and next week on Thursday, I will finish everything for my GED! That's pretty exciting. And I did better on the tests than I thought I would.

So, "What are you going to do after high school?"

Well guess what!?! You're going to have to wait to find out!

(Cause I don't even know yet...)

Some of the youth got to lead worship Sunday, and it was great! I'm so glad to have all these awesome, talented, teenagers in my faith family! If any of you are in NW Arkansas sometime on a Sunday, come to Faith Journey!

Yes, I know, the quality... maybe I'll get a new phone sometime with some more mega pixels.

Real men. Spear fish.

Posted: Oct 2, 2010 by Kade in

So today we went fishing, and Kwinn and I decided to do it the way real men do. It was actually really fun!

But the question still stands:
Did you catch anything!?!

Well I must say, it took me a very long time to snag this baby,
but once I nailed him in the right spot, it was all over;
I had done it. Hard work always pays off.
