Sometimes being a youth pastor is the best thing in the world! The above is a note from four middle school girls to me during last February’s winter retreat. To give you some back story, I heard through the grapevine (other middle school girls) that these four were planning on spraying me with some water. I decided to do a preemptive strike, so when they were talking with me and asked if I had any electronics in my pockets that they could look at for a moment (they were so subtle) and what I would do if someone pranked me, I told them “I would probably do something like this …” and then I totally sprayed them all and ran away before they could get me. Well, eventually they caught up to me a few hours later and managed to hit me with some water. Then they gave me the above note, which reads:
Matthew – we know that we already sprade [sic] with water but you got all 4 of us and we only got you. So to make it even we have to get you 3 more times. So watch out man! IT IS WAR!

P.S. See ya, wouldn’t want to be ya! Ha Ha Ha. LOL!
P.P.S. If you want to get us we are all in cabin Keystone room 3.
Oh. My. Word. I just about died. That has got to be my favorite note of all time – I still start laughing every time I read it!
And that is just another reason why middle school ministry is AWESOME.
