Let’s Celebrate a Victory!
by Carlos Ingles
Each year the Hispanic Churches of Christ in Houston have an event called the Gulf Coast Bible Conference. A part of the conference is a Bible bowl, when a book or several chapters of a book are chosen to test participants’ biblical knowledge. This year was a very difficult book: Numbers, from the Old Testament. The exam has 100 questions and is split into two days because of how long it is.
It is a big competition with many participants, and Impact came into the competition having won the previous five years in a row, and this year Impact won again in each of the age categories! Our kids did a great job; they won many awards and it was also great to see new kids participate. It was also fantastic that in the adult category we not only won first place but had a three-way tie for first place between three women from Impact! Marina Remigio, Paulina Romero, and Lluvia Delgado won first place and Claudia Romero won second place.
Thank God for each of the participants and for their effort and dedication. The true award is the knowledge of the eternal word of God but you have to admit that the trophies are nice also! Congratulations to the winners, we are very proud of you. A big thanks also goes to our coaches, Lluvia Delgado and Dimas Velasquez!
