Survivor China

I have always been a fan of the reality show Survivor, so much so that some friends of ours used to videotape the show and mail it to us in Nicaragua for a great treat. Last season I found that some generous people record it and post it on youtube, which means that I can watch the show the day after it airs in the US. I can't view it on cbs.com, because of some IP address that they realize comes from Mexico.

Last week they voted off Leslie, the Christian radio show host from Charlotte's New Life 91.9. I knew I recognized that voice! She was hit with something hard on day 1, the welcome ceremony, when they wanted everyone to bow down to a Buddha statue, and even though they said it wasn't a worship service, she knew she couldn't bow to anyone. I think she said, "The only one I will put my face to the floor for is Jesus." I really admire her strength and fortitude to not be shy about her faith. I know that she wasn't voted off for her faith, either, and I wish she could have stayed on longer!

I was so proud of her too. My girls and I were watching and sitting on the edge of our seats waiting for her to stand up and say no to doing it. It was awesome, we all cheered.

I too am a survivor fan.

Hope life is going well, it's getting cool here, I miss the heat!

I second you Jan! I wish she could have stayed. Some of the tribe members said they were worried that she bonded with the other Christians in the other tribe when she was kidnapped. I am so proud of her for standing up for what she believes.
