This is no ordinary team. The Jumpers are all former or wanna-be quizzers, at least twice as old as their competition. And competition is exactly why this crew was assembled. (Well, that and it's a good excuse to study the Word of God.) The Jiwaka Jumpers are only local opponents for PNG's teen Bible quizzing team--Kudjip Paia.
The books for this quizzing year are Romans and James. We are all furiously studying and learning memory verses. Some of us are discovering that our brains don't work quite as well as they did 20 years ago! GEESH. The younger generation definitely has the advantage there.
Our first quiz-off is Saturday, August 17th over Romans chapters 1-6. Gooooooooooo teams PNG!!!
"But what does it say? 'The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,' that is, the message concerning faith that we proclaim: If you declare with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved."
~ Romans 10:8-9
