InsideOut: If you were stranded on a deserted island, what three items would you want to have with you and why?

IO: Please tell us your favorite joke.
KK: My favorite joke is told every time (and I mean every single time) I go to a Chinese restaurant with my dad. We get through the meal, and I know it is coming as he reaches for the fortune cookie on the table. He breaks it open. … Read More »

31st May

Our next interview for NAYC comes from A.J. Dummitt of Radcliff, Kentucky. He will be coordinating Project 22:39 at North American Youth Congress. So, students, it’s my pleasure to introduce you to A.J. Dummitt.

InsideOut: If you were stranded on a deserted island, what three items would you want to have with you and why?
A.J. Dummitt: 1) My family (if you consider them to be items). I would definitely not want to be anywhere without my family and especially my wife, Cathy, because HOME is wherever we are together. I absolutely love my family, and if they were with me, this would be a grand adventure.

2) My Bible. I would have said this would be even more important than having my family, but I have been in and around Bible quizzing for so long—and my children quiz as well—that wherever we … Read More »

IO: Please tell us your favorite joke.
RD: Two deeply-in-love penguins stood and held flippers on a small iceberg as they floated atop the frigid waters of the Antarctic. Suddenly, a lightning bolt struck from a clear blue sky and split the iceberg in half. The two pieces slowly drifted apart from one another, creating a divide between the lovestruck penguins. Their eyes locked in intense sorrow as the blocks of ice were … Read More »

InsideOut: If you were stranded on a deserted island, what three items would you want to have with you and why?
James Maroney: Bible – for obvious reasons; something to hunt with – because I enjoy eating; sunblock – because I am a ginger.

IO: Please tell us your favorite joke.
JM: Don’t really have a favorite. When you have this personality, pretty much everything is a joke. Ask anyone who knows me!

IO: What is the funniest moment you have had while preaching?
JM: I’ve had too many slips of the tongue to mention any one in particular. Florida HYC 2007. That is all. Thank you.
