And the Winner Is

Well, we had three categories for competition: 1. Most Creative 2. Most People 3. Furthest Away

So we determined number 2 and 3 and will give you the five finalists for the Most Creative for you to vote on.

2. For the Most People
GRACE UNITED METHODIST CHURCH in Florida. (The NC State photo's authenticity could not be verified).

(Honorable Mention Goes to Sayre's Food Center...because if everyone who drives by that sign prays, then they would be the winner!)

3. For the Farthest Away from Cleveland
If my mapquest investigation is correct, Amsterdam was the longest distance from Cleveland!



(Honorable Mention goes to Clermont, France)

And in the area of MOST CREATIVE...Here are the 5 finalists...You can vote for your favorite by picking A,B,C,D,or E and writing it in the Comments section of this post.

I vote for A! This contest was a great idea! I heard in a sermon a couple of weeks ago a minister ask: "What if you only got tomorrow what you prayfully were thankful for today? Made me stop and think and I've passed it along to others to do the same, However I know that Chaia would be here. There are a lot of people thankful that she is here today!

Any way we can verify A as the actual band? If that really happened then I vote for A. :-)

WOW--We vote for B--to see the little children share in the power of prayer will stay with them forever. How else is HIS Word and Power going to be carried on unless it is through the children!!! Great video too- Ben and Shaina you have humbled us before God more than once through this journey. Prayers are never ceasing!! His work is not finished yet--Denise & Glen Sayre

My vote is for B. Being a mother of many children - and knowing how hard it is to just get ONE picture done for the Christmas card....having to get them to participate for each letter is amazing! All were great - but I LOVED B!!!

I'm going with "B". I agree with the others about the patience it had to take to get the children involved and to pray for another child! I think a special app was used to make "A" - very creative though!! Loved 'em all!!
