This is the first year that Metro has been able to send two teams to internationals! Both teams did extremely well, considering the number of rookies. Metro 1 (red shirts) placed 13th, and Metro 2 (green shirts) placed 5th.

Jon Pang and Cristina Lai placed 5th and 17th, respectfully, and Justin Chang got 3rd rookie. Congrats to all!

The two teams had a lot of fun bonding. John has really impacted all of our lives, and this precious book will be unforgettable after studying it so much. Thanks for all the tears, laughter, and memories.

Congratulations to the 2009 Metropolitan internationals team for a 2nd straight trip to the championship round, and to Matthew Chun and Jonathan Chang for individually placing 9th and 11th, respectively! The team ended with an impressive 3rd place finish, second only to last year's 2nd place finish.

Apart from the competition, the team members bonded well and enjoyed fellowship with each other and with other quizzers. Throughout the pre-competition practices and the tournament itself, we were reminded of the challenge in Luke 9:23-25: "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will save it. What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit his very self?" (Read our REFLECTIONS).

In sum, quizzers and coaches alike enjoyed an incredible week in all aspects. We hope the quizzers will treasure their knowledge of Luke's Gospel, and encourage everyone to try out for Internationals 2010 in Calgary, Alberta!

Summit Grove Camp, New Freedom, PA - July 8-13, 2008 

Youth defined this year's internationals team, comprised of 4 young rookies and 2 first-time coaches. Despite the inexperience, this team made history as the first ever team from the Metro District to qualify for the championship quiz, placing an impressive 2nd out of 23 teams.

Beyond excelling on a competitive level, this team was blessed with an incredible overall experience. We were encouraged to be observant to God's voice throughout the week. As a result, we were spiritually challenged on an individual level, learning valuable lessons about faith, teamwork, relationships, perseverance, discipline, and encouragement. (Read our TESTIMONIES here). 

All in all, internationals was an unforgettable week (see MULTIMEDIA and other MISCELLANEA). We pray that Paul's words to the Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, and Colossians will continue to have an impact on our team. We eagerly anticipate the team members becoming solid leaders in our district next season, as well as another exciting team for Internationals 2009 at Crown College!
