Mosey up the hill north of the parking lot to the field at the top of the hill.  Q set out a cone for home plate, 3 safety vests as 1st, 2nd, 3rd base markers.  Divide the PAX into 5 groups.  4 groups deploy to bases, 5’s stay at home plate to be the transportation team 1st.

PAX at each station do specified exercise AMRAPs while one team is bear crawling on transportation to the advanced base (group 5 started from home to 1st).  When transportation team gets to next base, they assume the station workout AMRAPs and team in front of them leaves on the bear crawl to the next base.

This past Thursday, my 5 yr old daughter, Madison, prayed for Jesus to come into her heart, forgive her sins, and show her how to live for Him.  

Proudest dad moment!!!

COT at the Lair a few weeks ago was inspired by a Captain Obvious retweet talking about doing things you want your kids to do, if you want them outside, you get outside, and so on.  This can be in any are of life, priority time in the Word being the most important.

I encourage the men to think about this with their own kids.  If you don’t have kids, you should be in a whetstone relationship pouring into somebody and somebody should be pouring into you.  Model the behaviors you want your kids/blades to emulate.  Live like Christ!

“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.”  Proverbs 22:6 ESV

I have a looooong way to go with my kids, so prayers from the PAX are requested.

What an incredible morning!  Gorgeous weather, 11 strong HIM to spend time with in the 1st F, 9 staying for PLC 2nd F, and a COT to send the men into intentional living.  We need more PAX to show at the Mothership.  I greatly enjoy meeting and getting to know PAX from AOs outside of the burbs on these Saturdays.
