This summer, I had predicted that we would hit 100,000 verses on September 15th, 2011. Obviously I was wrong. However, I am hardly discouraged as it is so exciting to see so many new people using Memverse and seeing regulars reaching new heights and staying faithful with the Scripture. It is also very inspiring to read all the passion for God's Word on Memverse that stands in sharp contrast to what we often encounter off Memverse.
Our main focus on Memverse is always knowing, loving, worshiping, and serving the true, Living, Biblical God better and better through memorizing, meditating on, and obeying His Word. However, I think there is room in our goal to encourage and inspire each other as we meet different milestones here on Memverse.
So what do you think? When will we hit 100,000? You can make one prediction on the "Original guess" chart. You can also update that guess as many times as you want on the "Latest guess" chart. I will record up to 3 names for each date on each chart. Will you be the first to predict the right date? A big thanks to Julie of scripturestickies.com who is increasing the fun and adding prizes to those who guess the right date. I wonder who will have the honor of memorizing verse #100,000. Please join us in praying for each Memverse user as we memorize and interact with God's Word. Also pray for Andy, Alex, and Emeka as they keep working to improve Memverse.
Exact date you think we will reach 100,000 verses on Memverse?

A message from Julie:
Hello everyone! I love what you guys are doing here on Memverse as you memorize God’s Word and encourage each other. This contest looks like a lot of fun! A few years back, I started a ministry called Scripture Stickies to help people memorize and meditate on God’s Word. Scripture Stickies are stickable Bible verses and they are a fun way to help you study verses. They also make great gifts.
I would like to offer some prizes for this contest. To everyone who picks the right date on either the “Original Guess” or “Latest Guess” chart I will give one free Scripture Stickies pack of your choice. In addition, the first person to have picked the right date as their original guess will receive a free 6 month subscription to the “Scripture Stickies of the Month Club”. Although I will feel a little bad if I actually win and claim my own prize, I do want to join the fun, so I will predict October 28 as the date Memverse hits 100,000 verses. :)
If you think you have a good prediction, feel free to start looking for your favorite Scripture Stickies pack now on my website, www.scripturestickies.com.
To claim your prize, call me at 1-888-202-4007 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or mail me at 405 El Camino Real #434 Menlo Park, CA 94025 with your username and the address you want me to mail your Scripture Stickies to (also tell me which pack you chose and what version of the Bible you prefer). Alternatively, if you will be at the Bible Bee Finals in Nashville – and if 100,000 verses has been reached by then - you can pick up your prize in person at the Scripture Stickies booth.
Thank you and God bless!
