Pathfinder Teams Excel in Bible Achievement

Idaho Conference Pathfinders have been exercising their knowledge of the Bible in two recent competitions, and one team is headed on to compete at the North American Division level in Berrien Springs, Mich.

In mid-February, the conference hosted nine teams from seven Pathfinder clubs at the Caldwell (Idaho) Church for the conference-level Bible Achievement Program.

As the Pathfinders gathered, they were both excited and nervous. When it began, the Homedale Hawks team was missing a member and was concerned about their performance.

One question the Homedale team thought was the easiest came near the end. They were asked to name the 14 generations from Abraham–David and in order for an extra point. The team knew all 14 names but ran out of time after writing down 13. The La Grande "A" team was able to get all 14 down in time.

Even so, the Homedale, La Grande "A" team and the Boise, Idaho teams received first place and went on to participate in the North Pacific Union level Bible Achievement Program March 8. "This is the first time Idaho Conference has had this many teams participate and has had three teams achieve first place in one year," says Terry Rusk, Idaho Conference Pathfinder director.

At the North Pacific Union level, Boise and Homedale placed second. The La Grande team placed first and will advance to the North American Division level.
