i don't know what is going on with the pictures not loading on this page....sorry.
let me just say, that if anyone is late again i will murder you. i am not joking. no contractions means serious buisness.
this morning, monday, at 6am, (our one and only day off) we had to get up, as a school, and run. this was due to the fact that people had come late to some different stuff this weekend. this wasn't just an easy little run either....after we ran a mile we had to do sprints. people were throwing up. then we ran some more. nice. i hope that this teaches EVERYONE a lesson in not being late. ever. if i have to do this again folks...i can't even talk about what i will do. you wouldn't be able to read it it is so violent.
BE ON TIME.

my mother just sent the most horrible picture to my good friend kasper. i am in the picture, my brother is in the picture and i think that we are riding chucky cheese... keep it to yourself kasper. we don't want things to get dirty again.
master's conference is now over, i am glad to say that everything went really smoothly. there were people here from spain, france, holland, england, scotland, ireland, austria, norway and iceland. it was really great to get to talk and meet people...mr. iceland seemed to be the main attraction this weekend, well, at least for the girls. he made LOTS of new friends...heh heh. Rraar iceland, Rraar.
things are not simmering down at all. today is going to be the fullest day ever. we have to go to three services, perform 2 songs for each service, and then andy and i have to find SOME time today to clean the school. yuck. oh, and just so all of you know.....i still have a guestbook.

i would have to say that i am looking forward to today. i am not sure why...
last night we were getting all set up for worship practice and then i get a phone call. it was nolan saying that the leaders of the master's conference had scratched all of worship except for friday morning. what the....?!?!?! i was so confused, i had planned so much and now, NOTHING. ok ok.
filip had just gotten there to practice, and so he came all of that way for nothing. that made me feel pretty crappy. good thing is though we don't have to practice as much.
i am not sure how it happened, but something started between gabriel and danielle last night. all i know is that she dumped water all over him in the lounge when i yelled at her to do it and then he was chasing her with a pitcher of milk...it was brownish colored milk though. ohhh, man. he didn't get her because she hid real good. i think that he will get her though. brings back memories of last year....remember danielle? i do. bones, wet mattresses and sweet sweet revenge. i need to taste it again.
rockford gets here tomorrow which will bring two members of our cimc family home to us. ahhhhh, it will be so nice to see david and rachael. they have been missed. i can't wait to see you both and hug you and tackle you and kiss your faces! david, you know that you will like it. don't even act like you won't. you have missed me. you silly swedish boy.
greg left today. i would have to say that i really liked that guy. what an awesome drummer seriously...and a great wig wearer... you are your sister except in male form. have a good trip! i know that you don't read this, but i am going to act like you do.
had a good conversation last night and cleared up some stuff, whew. wink* to you. you know who you are.

yesterday evening andy, jesse, deanna, rebecca and i all went to night church. so wonderful, so beautiful. i always meet jesus when i go.
afterwards we went and sat at a cafe and talked for three hours. we made a horrible mixture with all of our drinks, a cigarette butt, and some candle wax. we made a question game, and then if you refused to answer the question you had to take a swig of our little concoction. oh, such evilness, but also pure delightfulness. sorry andy...i rule you.
don't ever touch me with your booty ever again. well....at least not until graduation, heh heh.

we recorded chapel this morning. i found out an hour before practice last night that we were. way to keep me informed guys. aj and craig just pulled it out of their BUTTS last minute. what? it was good though. they are going to digitally mix it and make a cd. woohoo.
I have decided that i like the SAGU people. i have stayed up the last two mornings until 3am hanging out and talking to them. i think that john and david are my two favorites. john looks like a dwarf...david is animated and laughs at everything. scottish accents are cute. that is enough for me.
well, i just heard what is going down for tomorrow night. oh man, so excited. details later on that.
off to a meeting with craig...a closed curtain one, we all know what that means...swearing.

danielle and i just got in a fight.
her and andy started by smashing cakes in my face. then i took one and threw it at her face. definitely not sufficing for what had just happened to me. so i chased her and just as she was getting ready to pick up a biscuit off the floor i grabbed it and smashed it in her face. she whirled around and hit me with her arm. that is when it started. there was a constant back and forth hitting, flailing of arms, kicking and slapping for a few minutes and some yelling. then we stopped, andy and nicole were laughing and i left. the cafe ladies were giving me scary looks as i left.
i didn't realize till i left that there was blood on my arm. that little butt scratched me. oh, well, i was all fun. i had a good time. i hope that she did too. good job danielle, i have to give it to you for drawing blood.

last night the worship team went to odense to play at a church. well, it ended up not being a church, it was really a cafe...and we didn't really lead worship, it was a performance. it was still really good though. aaron's electric gave out on the last set. i cried.
lampshade walked in right before we started playing and i got a little nervous. i just really enjoy their music and think that they are, well, awesome. afterwards i got to talk to rebecca, the lead singer, for 45 minutes. then she prayed for me and i prayed for her. it was so encouraging.
yeah that is all. oh we have a team from TEXAS here right now. they are invading everything! no, they seem really cool. they are here for a week and then rockford is here for a week...AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! heh heh. gabriel your people are coming.

many miss because they are too hesitant to start. others get into ministry and quickly become so busy doing things for God that they fail to draw close to him. a successful christian life will not be based so much on how much work we have done, but rather on how close to the Lord we have become, and how obedient we have been.
it is not possible to walk as we are called without a personal encounter with the Lord every day. we need a holy addiction to his prescence so that he becomes more important to us that oxygen. i do not consider to have attained this yet myself, but it is my greatest pursuit...
amanda shaye |6:14 AM
just so you all know we do not have much internet access anymore. this i think is a very good thing. i will miss talking to all of you on a regular basis, but i think that a lot of good will come of it. i can still check email all the time so please email me. please.
love and miss you all.

ok, nicole and ben got a hold of my blogger and posted the last two paragraphs of the last entry. just so everyone knows. i was going to erase it but they said to keep it because it was so cute and adorable. so there you go guys. have fun.
no ben i will not make out with you.
amanda shaye |5:28 AM
ben rey is here...although he might as well not be because i haven't got to spend any time with him. he tackled me in the hall yesterday and said, "we better hang out before i leave punk". ok ok if i HAVE to. i hate that i am so busy this week!
but i love him so much there are so many times that i want to just grab him and kiss him. with an open mouth! but alas, i must calm my heart. someday i will catch him alone and MAKE-OUT with him.....someday.
oh and did i mention how much i just love nicole. seriously if she was a man i would marry her. oh yea! i can`t even control it....seriously sooo hot. its too bad i am moving out of the room because i won`t be able to see her fine butt in the morning anymore. oh so sad. oh and i love her and she rocks my face off.

thanks to all of you that were praying for us. IT WORKED! impact night was so amazing. God was so present in that sanctuary. at 10 til seven there were 5 people there. at 5 til seven there were over a hundred. praise God. they just all spilled in at once. they were mostly people from x'lnt and ipc.
i wasn't sure how people were going to respond in worship because we did songs that they didn't know and weren't familiar with. people were up worshipping the whole entire time. after the service, craig dismissed everyone. he told them that they could leave and that we would still play a couple more songs if they wanted to stay. no one left. they wanted to stay and worship. they never do that, when they are dismissed they always leave. i was blown away. God was there. i was happy. please go here for pictures.
people wanted our cd.
i had a wonderful afternoon with danielle. i loved spending time with her...and pernille. if you love danielle raise your hand. it was so nice to be able to sit and talk and not be rushed. something that doesn't happen so often. we waited in the cafe for over 45 minutes to even get served. it was incredible. being the american that i am i wanted to leave to show my dissatisfaction, but i didn't. this is for you beautiful girl...so you will have good dreams of me. i love you danielle.

teddy tried to kill me twice today. i'm not even kidding, seriously.
ok, first she told me to go in the bathroom and stand in there for five minutes...there was a gas leak. she found this very amusing. so she runs in her room and locks the door so i can't kill her. smart girl.
so i beat on the door until she let me in. we argued for awhile and then she walked out. i followed, but dropped my keys at the door. i bent over to pick them up, only to look up right at the moment that she slammed the door as hard as she could. that's right, face was smashed. i have a bump and an imprint of the handle on my forehead, and a busted lip. there was blood. i promise.
as soon as i had recovered from the shock and overwhelming pain of it all, i calmly walked into the kitchen and returned to teddy with the biggest butcher knife that i could find. i chased her with it to her room and threw her on danielle's bed. i cut her, all up, there was blood everywhere. no, not really, but i did scare her. that was enough to satisfy me. i did drag the not sharp side across her neck though. that was great.
