My brothers aren’t “Post pictures of me on your blog” kind of guys, but just this once I couldn’t help shouting from the rooftops (or so to speak) about something one of them has done. 🙂
Well, here’s the story of why I am so proud of him right now. 🙂
Mark has been competing in an online LEGO event called the “MocOlympics”. “MOC” standing for “My Own Creation”. He’s made it up to Round 4… which is no small achievement. In fact, the round 3 match-up, he actually eliminated the builder who won the MocOlympics last year.
Each round, the builders are assigned categories in which to work. This round, his category was “H.E. Double-Hockey-Sticks – build a dark lord’s realm”. We were all a little aghast and taken aback when we heard about it. Mark was wondering how he could build something like this… and then as our family was talking about it together, we came up with a really great idea.
Have the underworld being overthrown!
And THIS is the result.
Please go check out his entry page on MOCPages, a LEGO builders site, where he’s uploaded pictures of his entry. I helped him write the description, but the work put into building the LEGO creation was done entirely by him. We worked together on this video… which still gives me chills when I watch it, it’s just that awesome.
Make sure you listen to the music during the credits too. 😀 How’s that for giving praise and honor to our Lord?
I have to say, Marky-man, I am SO PROUD OF YOU. Way to go out there and represent the God we serve by making a LEGO build that points directly to him and delivers a knockout punch in the face of darkness. I love you, Bro.
P.S. – I will tell Mark about any comments you make if you want to leave one on this post for him.
