We <tBANNERr> Uo^k 1« 1Q7T Dona 1 ^^WH^MB**^ March 25, 1977 Page 1 Forensics earn funds for Nationals 'The dream of CBC being able tp go to Nationals when other schools aren't going. . .has now become an answered prayer. Since the beginning, CBC has been a school of hopes, dreams, answered prayers, and miracles. It's exciting that the CBC speech team is able to add one more special miracle to our witness to the world." "Knowing that in the Christian life we should always strive to reach a higher mark and not just be satisfied with reaching what we have striven for, the speech team is now praying for another miracle." Don't they ever give up? It would seem not. Having just two members on the forensics team in September didn't deter them. (To date, 25 people have competed for CBC in speech tournaments.) Neither did a lack of funds deter them. "At the beginning of the year, at our first speech meeting, we said, 'We'regoingtoGeorgeMason University (location of national competition).' The reason we knew this was because God had sent us Ron Nash, who had attended George Mason the year before. Clinging to that indication of God's will in our lives, we chose to pray and direct our efforts to attaining that dream." "And that's just what it was—a dream. No one had qualified for Nationals. The majority of the members had never competed. We almost didn't have a speech team this year. We prayed that the Lord would send us the right people, those who desired to work." Even with hard-working people, last week only six competitors could have gone to Fairfax, Virginia, with the available funds. "There wasn't enough money." No money had been set aside in the school budget for the costs of sending the team to Nationals. Solution? "The team members forfeited their scholarships and the school turned scholarship money into cash. It was a really big thing for them to do!" To the $2,000 from the school, the forensics team added $700 raised from "AChristian's Imagination Should Fly Beyond The Stars," bake sales, and individual donations. Two team members will pay their own ways. This total will enable 10 members of our forensics team toattend the competition. Thanks go to Pat McGrew for "helping and encouraging" the team in their efforts to raise the sum. "Mr. McGrew wanted us to go as much as we did." "We have a ministry through forensics. Our goal is to be jtfst that; anything else is cream off the top!" Curtis O'Brien serves as chaplain and the group hopes to learn five scripture verses weekly before t n e i r departure (April 18th). The team members that will remain behind will minister to the departing members until their departure. A team member who is going to Virginia says, "We're like missionaries." "In the course of our witness one person has been led to Christ and the changes in all the other lives can really only be speculated on because ofthe smiles of friendship we receive from our fellow competitors." "Missionaries" include Mrs. Hokett, Gary Cogill, Alma Rhoades, Ron Nash, Bob Shipley, Sherri Erkes, Carla Pudwill, Roy Ronveaux, Dan Jones, and Jack Bracy. Helping to prepare the team (while they work out arrangements for classes and assignments to be missed) are Joan Gibson and Pari Rickard (working on a news analysis file for exempt and impromptu), Angie Wahl (coaching persuasive), Dave Auda, Tami Young, Debbie Sims and Curtis O'Brien are also helping to critique oral interpretation and any other events that need help/encouragement. 'The exciting thing about the team is the love that is develop- Androcles and the Lion March 24-26 BOL admission: $1 time: 8:00 ing, evidenced in personal sacrifices of time and effort given to really pull togethera great team . . . One special thing about love—when you allow yourself to fully give it, it never dies. Love goes from one person to the next, just as God gives it to us. Christ's love is reflected in us--it's exciting to know that CBC is reflecting." The theme ofthe speech team's best fund-raiser was "A Christian's Imagination Should Fly Beyond The Stars." 'That's just what happened this year with our speech team because we've allowed our imaginations to "fly beyond the stars." "We have a great big God. . . We're out to change our world." The team is still trying to raise money to help defray the cost to those members who paid their own ways. Ideas and contributions are welcome--just let a member of the team know. Oh, the special miracle still left to happen? Since they'll be in the neighborhood, the team would like to drop in on our President.
