>YHC remarked to the PAX about the impression that Gideon from the Bible (Judges) made on him recently. The audacity to demand God to prove He is God. YHC challenged the PAX to consider if we have a tendency to do that from time to time. YHC also encouraged the PAX to consider if we are allowing ourselves to ‘hear God’s voice and call on our lives to lead in the various area of our lives. PAX locked shields and lifted individual PAX prayer requests up.
>21 PAX came ready to work today. Many (9, in fact) had just come off a 0200 to 0700 RUCK to join the other 12 for the BC from 0700 to 0800 then reconvene the final 4.5 mile Ruck back to starting point ending at 0930. Gassed they were but grinded through with fervor. That’s the essence of this group of men. We are Doers. Many T-Claps to Four Eyes for collaborating and sharing the load with YHC today (1 of those 9 ruckers). Band of brothers. Better. Together.
