Can You Believe a Teenager Did This?
Ray ‘ Bubba Sorensen
There is a huge rock near a gravel pit on Hwy. 25 in rural Iowa. For generations, kids have painted slogans, names, and obscenities on this rock, changing its character many times. A few months back, the rock received its latest paint job, and since then it has been left completely undisturbed.
It ‘ s quite an impressive sight. Check out the multiple photos (all angles) of the rock.
The flag is not draped over the rock….it’s painted. What an awesome job.
Making a difference is easy. You simply have to step out on faith and follow the path set before you. Use your talents, your passions and trust them to the Father who blessed you.
Ray was 19 years old when he was inspired by the movie Saving Private Ryan and in an effort to make a change and honor our soldiers, he took on “The Rock.” Pictures change from year to year on the rock but twelve years later the effort still prevails.

Fifteen-year-old Mark Vincent, 2009 Australia’s Got Talent Winner:
Competitive, yet soft-spoken, Garrett has a mission to be a positive influence on his peers and to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ through his music and other talents. He believes that God’s plans are bigger than his, and trusts that God will lead him to where he needs to be at the right time he should be there.
At 6’3”, his friends literally look up to him. This freshman from Central Indiana stands tall both on the football field and the basketball court. Garrett participates in choir and show choir, and also volunteers as a small group leader in the children’s ministry at his church.
Garrett’s passion for music began at the age of 7 when he began taking guitar lessons. By the age of 11, he was already writing his own songs, and, at the age of 12, he got the opportunity to open up in local concerts for nationally touring music groups. In July 2010, the music video to Garrett’s original song, “Digital Demon,” was officially released on DVD and has already started to make its way across the U.S. The impact of this DVD, which takes on the relevant topic of “sexting” among teens, is not yet realized, but many people are praying that hearts and lives will be changed as a result of it.
Strong in his faith, and unbending in his values, Garrett is always looking forward to new challenges and adventures. He is not content with just standing on the sidelines. He wants to “Get in the Game for God.”
