We are once more approaching 1,000 active users and this time I believe that we, Lord willing, will make it. How exciting when according to the "one church" leaderboard chart we had not even cracked 500 as recently as June 2010. One easy way to tell your friends may be to forward the recent August Memverse newsletter you received to your friends.
To encourage us to pass the 1,000 active user mark I am setting up a "My friend signed up in August" chart. If someone you told about Memverse signs up (or has already signed up) this month, please let us know on this blog. Please also let us know if you are the one who signs up in August and remember who told you about Memverse!
I realize an over emphasis with numbers can be dangerous. It is possible for us to have 1,000,000 active users and not have right hearts before God! Let's not get out of balance. On the other hand, as a math teacher and a coach for 20 years I love numbers and am excited about the motivation we can receive as we see other like minded believers memorizing Scripture with us and dream big God-size dreams of what He might do through His Word and truth in our lives.

Can we get more than 10 people to help a friend sign up for Memverse this month? At last count, we recovered from our nose dive and set a new record of 994. Many thanks to everyone who spread the word about Memverse at your local competition. It would be very cool to get over 1,000, even if it is only temporarily before we dip again, before we eventually surpass 1,000 for good!! Who will you refer today?
