hey everyone! i'm back for another post! so, to start off, let me tell you what i've been up to lately... By the way that picture is of me in Greece on my dad's laptop...hehe... But now back to business.
As probably many of you know, for the past two years my dad and KAM have been working on a christian television series for Czech Television, and on wednesday the new program, called EXIT 316 is airing! So on friday and saturday I was in Vsetin at a "Zkusebni Jizda" or "Practice Run" where we had seminars and stuff to prepare us to lead discussion groups after the shows with our friends that we'll invite to youth group and watch it with. That was a really good weekend. All the people who had anything to do with the project where there, so we got to ask questions and meet the moderators etc! We also got to see the first episode, which will air on wednesday, called "Jina Dimenze" (in english "Different Dimension") where the theme is pretty much the spiritual world. You really have to see it to understand how awesome the show is. It's not like anything ANYONE has ever seen or done before. So be praying for wednesday when people across Czech will get to see and hear for the first time about God in a fun, entertaining, and Christian TV show!
In Vsetin we also met as a youth group, or more specifically, a specially selected group from our youth group (which I am apart of) and talked about what the first show is going to look like, and how we are going to handle things. We talked about what food to have there, how to engage people and get them discussing, and about the future. It was a lot of fun, and even though it's going to be a challenge, I'm really excited about it!
Boza, our youth leader and also worship leader talked to me a little bit after our planning. As many of you probably know, I've played with the worship team for about 3 years now, starting on bass, then acoustic, then electric, and after a long time of electric i'm coming on with my new acoustic guitar that i got for my birthday! Also, during the summer, first at english camp two mornings, and then at church during the summer twice I led worship. It was really awesome for me, because it's something that I really feel called to and it's so crazy to think that a lot of 16 year-olds don't get to have this kind of experience and great opportunity! But, to bring things up a notch, Boza asked me if I would lead worship once a month from now on! So i'm really excited for that! For now i'll still continue playing with Boza and the rest of our group the other two sundays. But I'm really excited!
Another interesting thing is that we are now having church on sunday afternoon up at hotel Malenovice! We had to move out of the old room that our church was in because it had to be used for a classroom for the high school I go to. So we've moved up there! And in about 3 and a half hours i'll head up there to have practice with Boza and our worship team!
Tomorrow is a big event...all of the Czech Republic goes back to school!!!! Aaaaah!!! I'm not exactly sure what i'm going to bring...don't even know what's going to be going on...but I do know what I'll be wearing! =) This year i'll be a junior, therefore i'll be in 11th grade. It's going to be a really different year again, being older and stuff, plus we have a bunch of new teachers, which will be good. So yeah, tomorrow i'll be back in my scheduled life! Goodbye sleeping in till 10!
In the middle of August we also went on vacation to greece! I wrote a ton of stuff in my journal there, and we'll see if i'll get to typing it up anytime soon. For now, if you're interested in hearing all about it, you can visit Hannah's blog - czhannah.blogspot.com, who's family, along with the Hashes, were there with us!
I haven't fugured out what i'm going to do now, but I think that's enough writing for now! I guess i'll go...do...stuff. Hmm............. Oh, and i'm still open to name suggestions! =) All for now! HOpe you enjoyed the second post of...TYLER'S BLOG....(see how bad that sounds??? gimme a good name!)
P.S. Oh yeah, and Treti Den led worship in Vsetin, it was amazing!
